Best Buy, for it's 40-50% boosts - and generally not caring if you're missing a case or manual. (Which also means it's a potentially crappy place to buy used.)

bestbuy since i haven't traded anything to amazon all year after NorAm started rejecting valid trade ins and sending me cracked game cases back.

then gamestop for decent 50% and 3/$10 promos + PUR bonus.

maybe next year i will try amazon again if bestbuy values still suck or gamestop.

I got some great value out of Amazon's 1-day TIV bonus promotion the week before Black Friday on certain games; won't have to buy anything new from them for quite a while.

Best Buy slightly above Amazon because of the preorder promos.

Amazon plus TIV tracker. Allowed me to keep buying games (from them) most of the year. It may be its last year in this spot, though, considering recent trends.

Best Buy

It is too bad they're banning most of the high volume traders, though I can definitely see it from their perspective, since they're NEVER gonna sell the hundreds(thousands?) of copies of Fallout New Vegas and other flipped games they got when those were available cheap at one place or another.

But their program did allow me to be able to get a 32" HDtv for about $150 spent out of pocket.;)

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Best Buy. Not only has their base trade ins been much higher than GameStop, but the bonus deals they have been doing are great.

Amazon. I would say Best Buy but they were good for only about 2 months, whereas Amazon was consistent the whole year.

Would have been Best Buy until they came up with the banning solution to limiting trade-ins (instead of, you know, actually just limiting trade-ins like Amazon did).

So, yeah, as a result I go with the slow and steady Amazon. Yes, they have their own issues, but it is relatively dependable and they have very clear and consistently enforced (at the time of trade-in) rules. Plus it ends up as Amazon credit, which is more flexible than even Best Buy credit (and way more than GS credit).

Gamestop would be a very close second though - way underrated by most of CAG but I've gotten some great trade-ins there for years, including many just recently.

That reminds me that I should really test out if I'm banned or not again sometime soon. If I am, then I'm gonna have them check for every single pre-order deposit I made in the system and cash those out for a gc. I think I have almost enough for a full MSRP priced game locked up in deposits.
