Seems like a waste of time to purposely spell words incorrectly.

You know he could be a foreigner and decided to move to the states recently and likes to play video games for cheap. Why assume he's uneducated?

I saw on Best Buy's site they take console trades as well, is this online only or can you take them in and do it? I meant to ask when I was in but I forgot. Figured someone here would know. And, there's no way this 100% bonus would apply to consoles, right?

I think it varies by store. For the last part of your question, no freaking way.

I traded in 10 games today and was supposed to get $96.60 after all bonuses, but I got $109.20. I looked and one of my $6 base games had been put in twice. When I noticed this, I went back in to tell the employee because I wanted to be honest. The employee called over some people to cancel the trade and re-do it with the correct amount. I gave him back the gift card and he redid the trade and gave me a new gift card with the correct amount. I'm worried that it will count me as having traded in 2 copies of each game and 3 copies of the game that was counted twice. I've read about a lot of bans on here and I hope that this doesn't make me banned. I've traded a rather large amount of games into Best Buy over the last 2 years but have never gone over the 3x limit.

Hard to say. Do you have any paperwork stating the first trade was voided? Maybe you should have been worried before you went back in. j/k

I didn't get anything saying the first trade was voided but he said it was after having a manager help him. I guess I should have gotten a paper but there were a few people behind me looking to trade or buy games.

In all the times (hundreds, not really...well, maybe, lost count) at all of the BBs (like a dozen) I've never seen anyone else trade-in games. I always ask the reps if I'm the only one and they say no, but I never see them.

It was only the second time I have ever seen anyone after dozens of times going. I guess people were coming in for the last day of the 100%.

Yeah I have only walked in one time when someone was already trading and had one other time when someone wanted to trade while I was already there. Each time the person had 1 game to trade. I know KTMack trades at the BBY I do but have never seen him...even when he was doing PS2 games :)

Just traded in my copy of PS3 Borderlands 2 in hopes of it being on sale during black Friday so I can get it on the Xbox, it was hard to do but had to be done to get halo preordered... I will miss it.

On a side note the guy forgot to put in my 10% bonus on my trade in and I told him about it after he already put the credit on the card so he just added the 10% of the trade in value after the 100% bonus so I got an extra $2 I wasn't supposed to get, I will miss this promo, hopefully TIV do go up next week.


Couldnt you just wait for halo 4 to go on sale on bf ? The online community will be strong by then obviously. Every major title went on sale last year so why not ?

I could.. But I'm one of those halo fanboys who is eager to play it on day 1 at midnight.

Confirmed 50% with updated TIV for newer titles. Not a huge difference.

All that worrying and it ends up being nothing (at least for the more recent games). The real question is how did the lower tier games go.

Well Madden and Darksiders each took a $3.60 cut or about 8.6% decrease. (Edit: Wrong now right)

Ha! Resident Evil 6 is only $33 (360 only)...that game is going to tank in price...good for those that want a PM.

Looks like Borderlands 2 actually went up!

The tracker is not updated yet though.

Borderlands gets an extra 1.20 while Madden did drop, but nothing drastic.

Hope RE6 Anthology price drops so I can PM.

Dang now I wish I would have waited to trade in my PS3 borderlands 2, ah well, I would have just been wasting my time as I have to start it all over on my Xbox anyway.

Ugh so basically everything got a $4+ drop and that great of a disparity between the versions of re6 already? Really hope that everyone who said their BBY reps said the 100 is coming back are right.
