So the 50% bonus is still going on, right? Just want to make sure as this week's ad didn't mention it.

Will they not take Dance Central 3 (360)? It doesn't come up in a value search by name or by upc.
Read back through the thread; seems like it not being searchable has been an issue for weeks, then somebody found the TIV was $3. *sigh*

Yup, multiple copies did it, I stopped for a while, I mostly did it back in the day when you could trade shitloads of Wii games with the B2G1 from GS, before they nuked the TIV's. Started doing it again when i noticed I could buy Uncharted 2 GOTY at GS for 10 and trade it in to BB for some $$$ lol


Were you trading in multiple copies of the same game at the same time? I'm asking because I did the same thing with those Wii games and Uncharted 2 but I never traded in more than 1 copy of the same game at a time.

Also, this is my first BB preorder, do I need to go to the same BB to pick it up that I preordered at?

Yes, you do.

You mean you traded in more than 3 of the same game within a year right?

I've traded in 3 copies of the same game at the same time several times. I just tell them I run video game tournaments (which is true).

DEbating on trading in Bioshock Infinite now or wait to see if 100% comes back. Not sure what the Season Pass will give me if I keep it.

So whats the best way to turn some gamestop credit into some BB credit, I need to pay off my copy of injustice......

Depending on the values/games in stock I've recently re-upped my PUR to get the b2g1 coupons then used the right sets of games to basically go no less than dollar for dollar but the 100% was in effect & aliens, DMC, Crysis 3 & one other title where all on sale for $35 used.

So the 50% bonus is still going on, right? Just want to make sure as this week's ad didn't mention it.

ends 5/4

Yes, you do.

Nope, I've pre-ordered & purchased the games in different stores/states never had a problem getting the $20 bonuses. They would even post in 2 weeks from the p/u. I paid the for $60 when I p/u the game though & just waited for the $20 to post before getting a refund or moving the $5 to another title.
As long as you meet the basics your fine pre-order/pickup the title by the deadlines.

Two Questions:
1. Does BB take in trades without the covers, in other words disc only, without any penalties?
2. If I was to pre order a game before my Membership is up, will i still get the $20 credit after my membership expires?

Should be yes to both.

1. No penalty and if they argue about it just pull a used game missing the cover off the shelf as an example.
2. No you have to be an unlocked member at time of pick up.

So the website trade in section does not list a 50% TIV bonus. Anyone know if it is still ongoing?

I see the weekly add lists it though so I guess it is fine.

According to the weekly ad, yes, the 50% bonus is still active (look immediately to the right): https://deals.bestbu.../#!/video games

EDIT: Whoop, I see you answered your own question. :oops:

If you actually click through, it's the value for Bioshock Infinite. Haha that's a funny typo.

Well the Bioshock: Ultimate Rapture Edition is showing up in the separate little corner box of http://www.bestbuy.c...17093&type=page (Trade online get $20) but when clicked it goes to a search looking for it but cant find it. Have a copy I picked up on the $20 sale and if I traded it in store I'd get 32$ after 50% and 10%, but If they took it outa the system completely...

If the 100% returns I'd guess the base would drop to $15 or $16 so not that bad really.
