Yeah, I'm just lucky to have a game manager who will do anything to get my business, so he'll pricematch just about anything I bring in, especially trade-ins, lol. Best Buy is my gaming store this year for sure, especially this holiday!

Got the Banhammer from BB today. I was a very sad panda. Then I remember I'm married and all I gotta do is bring my wife next time I want to do a trade in.

Well, I went yesterday and it was still on. They don't change mid-week so I'd be shocked if they didn't go through Saturday like the OP/title mention plus it was in this week's ad. I don't think the title was updated to remove the question mark.


The question mark is there because there have been some claims it goes longer. 10/6 is the minimum confirmation.

Not too sure if that will help. I went to trade in a game yesterday and found out I was banned again. Note that I was banned before but then reinstated. After upgrading their systems I'm banned again? This time I adhered to all the rules so not sure what's up.

So back to my story. After finding out I was banned I took my wife to a different Best Buy closer to home and had my wife do the trade in. System said she was banned too! The weird thing is that she's only done one other trade in for a handful of games and this was months ago! Either the new system tracks addresses too cuz that's the only way we were linked. She didn't use her Reward Zone or anything.

I didn't see it listed on the site either but I scanned my copy on my iPhone app and it showed a $7 base. Oddly enough the title is "no sign" but it does show the cover art of the game.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

This does not bode well...

Mathematically Correct.

Depending on the base values of the new games, this isn't necessarily bad. At 50% bonus, NCAA had a base of 27, which is 43.20 after all bonuses compared to 42 now with 100% bonus. You'll also get an extra negligible amount of rz points. Interested to see what new releases are priced at.

Nothing really, at least what was posted. Just ads for Dishonored and the Pokemon crap.

Anything else you would like to tell us? :)

Also, it is so weird that multiple people (and I personally told by 3 different employees) that the 100% was till the end of the year. So much for that. And I have 1 GoHasting shipment that I lose out on I guess.

Time to decide what $3-6 games I should dump now that it is ending.

They have an ad shot over at bluray.com. Only sale that can be seen is a $20 GC with purchase of a 3DS XL. Also, 50% trade in credit indeed.

Oh, I guess I should trade in my NHL 11 and NBA2K11 this week then. It's weird that 11 gets more than 12, but I'm not complaining.

Guessing TIV will go up so 50% won't be a huge difference. Weird that mobile app says till end of the year.

The +$10 games most likely but those under $10 I am not so sure. They just did a pretty big drop this weekend across a lot of games. I hope I am wrong but I am not risking it for my lower TIV games I was hoping to get through but not too concerned about playing.

I already got rid of my backlog so only games left are ME2 (crap TIV of $2), Madden, and Borderlands 2. I was hoping to trade back in RE6 with 100%, but guessing I can still get around 40 for it.

Time for me to dump MW3 and MW2 I suppose. I can't believe you can still get $30 for MW3...

Uh oh, please say it ain't so. I guess that may mean my wife is going to have to move. Or, at the very least, the kid has to lol

So are they nailing the banned users again? Well guess that shot my idea out of the window, was going to trade ME3 for the 2nd time by getting my friend to do it, but I rather not risk it.

I traded in two copies of Kingdom Hearts 3ds (two seperate transactions, one after the other) on Saturday. I'm allowed to trade in three copies of a game, right? I don't want to be banned.

Well that -used- to be the rule, 3 copies per console. BUT a few people have said that they changed it to 1 copy per console per year.

And with all the new upgrade fiasco, I also don't want to take any chances. I'm sure you'll be okay, I don't think its been confirmed but its just another rumor flying around. The mobile trade-in site still says 3 titles per console, then again the Copyright date on the bottom page still says 2011 so my guess is as good as yours.
