^^ I did this yesterday when trading in some games. I bought the GCU first ten did my trade which netted me the extra 10% right then. The employee did also give me a current magazine which me scanned an the register automatically zeroed the cost of the mag. Hope that helps.
After my trades I got $193 in BB credit which is pretty sweet. Just need to figure what to do with it. Guess it will sit until a good deal passes.
Right now you can get a $5 copy of Dragon Age II for PS3 or 360, a $10 copy of Resistance 3 and numerous other deals with the coupons in the magazine.

I just remember they were having problems when it first started because they weren't clicking some box at the final checkout screen. It's all tied to your RZ account so once it's in, it will update on your account as well.
Yeah. They forgot to scan the lil brochure thing that adds the subscription to your RZ account in conjunction with the coupon they needed to scan to unlock it.
I eventually had to have someone on the BB forums unlock it from the corporate end of things, since they tried it 2-3x or more using just the SKU from the unlocking coupon they sent me along with my RZ card and that brochure thing. But from what I'm hearing now that unlocking coupon is no longer a required step in the process.
Once you start trading you never go back. I started by needing to get rid of some games on my shelf so I did an Amazon trade of a bunch of games. Then I started trading to Best Buy, often at a profit. Then I turned into a flipper for a while and amassed a huge collection of games. Now I'm just trying to get rid of the games. I don't even honestly have time to go back and play the old games and probably never will anyway.
That was me to a tee. I started out trading my own collections of games, but by the time it reached a crescendo I was always doing 3x everything I was trading in.
I figured why go for small peanuts when I could spend a lil and make 2-3x what I was gonna make with just my own collection. That was my biggest mistake.
Wish I'd checked BEFORE taking my Greatest Hits copy to BB, but $4.50(bought today at KM) for this version will do.
Usually most people do it the other way around, where they're trying to get rid of the red case GH versions since it fucks up the feng shui of their gaming collection or whatever. But some of the GH versions have patches and other stuff right on the disc and/or glitches fixed, so sometimes it's better to get that 'ugly' GH version versus having to put up with possible issues with the earlier versions.
