Where are you guys getting this coupon from?


It's not a coupon. It will be automatic when you trade in games.

Do they accept games that say "Not For Resale" in place of a barcode?

Welcome to CAG! Thanks so much for trying to contribute. We actually have an entire thread dedicated to BB trade ins.



No reason to be rude, this deal is not in the other thread yet.

Thanks OP for posting, great deal.

I have never traded into a BB before... Do they limit the # of a single game that you can trade-in? I have lots of credit at GS, and rather use it for a new laptop/tablet from BB.

No, but you can trade in games without the case.

It's three copies of a game per platform per person/account per year. Actually the way they have it worded, I believe it's per household. So even if you maxed out your limit, you couldn't have someone else in your house come in with three more copies of whatever game.

Yea, swore I posted this in the other thread about the 50+10%, but just read it in the op, so disregard my post...

Anyways, looks like I will be going to multiple BBs and changing credit from GS to gift cards.

If you are looking for a quick cash out, no worries. You might get banned for the future though if that matters to you haha

EDIT: Assuming you plan to trade more than 3 of a bunch of titles.

Do we have any flips that don't require the coupon? My cashier killed the reusing coupon train yesterday.

It's not a coupon. If anything, it's a button they have to select in their system when doing the trade-in. As long as they check it when finishing the trade transaction, then you'll get the extra 50% bonus. That reminds me, I gotta round up the games I'm gonna take to BB after double checking their values to make sure they held.

If the glitch is still going on and you haven't already traded the limit of 3 of Dead Island, I'd say that $10-11 into $25.60 a copy for the 360 version is still a hell of a flip. Same deal with the PS3 version, which is $14 base and about $23 n change after promo/GCU.

To me as long as I'm doubling what I'm paying for stuff and it's being done with credit(or in this case a pre-paid Visa;)) then I'm a happy camper.

I thought we were talking about the b2g1 coupon. you only get that for unlocking or for trading in games?

Yeah. You only get that for going Unlocked and unfortunately it's mailed to you. If past history is any indication, it'll take 2-3 months(if not more) to get to you.

That's even assuming that your Unlocked isn't screwed up in their system and you have to work to get that fixed FIRST.:roll: That's what happened to me and many other CAG's. I ended up getting my Unlocked welcome packet in early November and the coupons were set to expire at the end of the year.

I've been procrastinating going up to BB to attempt a trade. But since this 50% bonus doesn't seem to require a pre-order of any kind(thus meaning no loss of $5 in credit to do trades) that means I can trade my copies of Killzone 2 and 3 I got for around $20 total from GS to BB for a slight profit as a test trade.

Then once I see if I'm banned or not I'll go grab some of the Dead Islands that my closest store had in stock as of yesterday(according to the stock locator anyway).

So we are positive this does not require a pre-order or a purchase? The only thing listed in the trade in offer is the guaranteed $30 TIV and I don't want to go there and waste anyones time if this isn't accurate/

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

What glitches were you talking about before? I wasn't aware of any glitches outside the games being around $5.xx after coupon instead of like $8.xx

This thread really should go, it lacks the link or FAQ that some people need.

Yes it works without preorder. It's listed on best buys trade in site under store promotions. Link found on real best buy thread.
