Well if I feel up to it I might write it all out but I turned $324 of BBY Credit into $567 of GS credit today.

So when do you think we will be able to flip it back to BBY? Or do you plan on leaving it at GS?

A Few Things:

I chose PRE-OWNED/BUY 2 GET 1 FREE BEST BUY games $19.99 or less so there could be other ones to consider....

Someone was speaking of some values could be higher over the weekend. It's been shown that GS can and will drop values. Wait around and see at your own risk.

Try and do these as soon as you can. Last week GS dropped a value or so, even though it/they(don't remember how many) was on the 50% list.

Thanks CLB, I was actually able to find 3 of these titles in stock. The location near me must've gotten a used re-stock bc I know these titles were not there on Monday (I already picked up Bully this week, but couldn't find any other worthwhile titles to flip).

You should have definitely gotten the B2G1 to apply, but only if you bought used games. A B2G1 for new games 59.99 and under starts this Sunday.

It's on their site. Should have been automatically applied. I did store pick up and the system gave me my b2g1 and 10% GCU pre-owned discounts, automatically.

That buy 2 get 1 free pre-owned coupon might expire on my, lmao. Seems like I decide to use it during 1 of their b2g1 sales!:lol:

holy shit, I went to best buy and saw most, if not all those titles that chunlibarbie listed and thought that getting 3 halo reaches and trading them in to GS was a good flip... until I saw chuns list. wowowowoww i really hope they dont lower the TIV tomorrow, or I will be a very sad panda. Definately waking up right before gamestop closes tomorrow and giving them a call to ask for the TIV since I don't have class tomorrow :)

You actually don't need the coupon to get the 50% bonus, but you'd be trading towards a full-priced collection.

Marvel:Ultimate Alliance 2 is 14.99 at BBY and trades in for $18 base at GS. If you trade towards the Sony Collections for the 50% bonus it's a nice flip

Got my bonus!:D Didn't get the coupon(PUR Pro Member) so I used PUR points to get a coupon for ($) off and used it to buy a Sony Collection for the 50% trade in bonus.

If you got the coupon that gives you the 50% bump or are going to use PUR points to get money off towards a collection, Black Ops Wii - BB $19.99($18) to GS $19.50($20.80) <<<<<Of course, this is mentioned because of the BB b2g1 sale.

Thanks for the list ChunLiBarbie, sadly the only one that is in stock at the BB near me is Black ops for the wii going to have to look for a couple others to take advantage of the buy 2 and get one free and the coupon for the 50% off at GS

Yes, but last time i tried trading in any cords to GS they only let me trade one of each type. I had two of the standard 360 video cables and two HDMI (which cost like $1 to begin with). Not sure what the actual policy is, but that was what happened to me. Not worth having to go back 10 times. Unless you can get your GS to take 10 at once.

Space out your dhmi trades. You will get banned like IATCG from GS. I try to trade 1 cable every 2 or 3 trades.

Here are some 1.3 HDMI cables for $0.99. They ask that you buy "1". eBay seems to have 99 cent cables popping up here and there. I use 1.4(or...so I think).

Could be something if GS still gives $4/$4.40 each. Call your local store.
