mass effect 3 is 15 bucks on amazon right now not sure if it was ever posted


It's not part of this trade-in-value deal unfortunately. It only goes for $7.00 according to the TIV tracker on CAG.

Best Buy would be stupid to let anyone trade in warped games. Whats to stop someone from just grabbing a bunch of games off the shelf then walking over to trade them in? lol


The stickers?

Thanks for the TIV OP. Traded in some copies of portal 2 haven't flipped since the best buy fiasco with that free nerf strike game. No go on the kindle GC cards though. Hopefully they stock them soon.

I took Sly Collection and Dead Island GOTY and was only offered 21 bucks total back anyone know why?


There's a second screen that the store clerk has to go through to see if any promotions are applied. The first screen will just list the trade-in values before the promotion kicks in. I had traded in three games today and, initially, it said I was only going to get ~$35 or so. But after the clerk went to the next screen, the price jumped to $80.

90% of CAG does this.


Have to agree here... I'm a trophy hunter as well as a CAG, so i stockpile games so I always have something new to platinum.

Today I traded in 2 games that I unwrapped DIRECTLY before going into the store, and got double what I paid for them.

Aside from that... I have 22 more games, wrapped in cellophane, sitting on a shelf... some of them I've had for over a year. I paid 5 and 10 bucks for most of them, and I play the ones I like first, and by the time I beat the ones I like.. I usually have MORE that I like and just never seem to get to the ones on the bottom of the pile.

At any point though they could get turned into credit somewhere... Oh well.

Just a disclaimer, I have no problem with their policy of not taking sealed games.

:wall: I seriously don't know what to do about Sly. I actually WANT it, but that's such a good TIV. Essentially 3x what I paid. But, again, it's a game I enjoy. Decisions...

I couldn't get to a K-Mart for Portal, kind of bummed. Oh well, I'm going to try and hit up a blockbuster tomorrow. I really want to get some credit for Black Ops 2 on wii-u.

Yay! Traded dance 2 and 3, sly collection and a few Wii shovel ware for just under 100$ credit! Yay! If I didn't have to buy a game as a gift I'd put it towards a 3ds!

My first big trade, I never trade but now, what the heck.i have too many games.

Thanks OP.

Other than what callmewoof has posted, I don't think it's worth it if it's something you enjoy. Unless you're trading it towards something you enjoy, even, more!

I have a number of games on that list, some I don't have systems for, yet. Well, Wii 3DS. And, I'm not trading them even though I'd make a profit. Not trading my $15(Target)LBP Karting that I haven't opened.

Not worth trading it if you'll feel weird later.

First time poster, long time lurker.

Traded in a few games, both in the list and not from the list and wasn't expecting much. Surprisingly got about $204, so I basically paid just tax for a 3DS XL Mario Kart bundle and got a free Nintendogs game.

Since u all love credit, buy two just dance 4 from bb, two free 20$, trade em in at gs for 25$+ ea, about 10$ in profit if u get the extra 10% from pro.

Have to thank you guys for this, ended up getting a 32gb Wii U for 21 bucks.
Probably would have never gotten one without this trade in deals.

Not finished with Borderlands 2 myself, but since I havent brought any DLC yet, I figure nows the time if any to trade it. It'll only go down from here

Ended up biting on trading in Lego Batman 2. Bought it from the Gamefly sale, and I don't really see what's so great about it besides the cuteness. Made $22 on it, and also traded an old iPod touch. Got a 1600 point card for Fan Axxess on WWE 13 cause, well hell I'm addicted to that game at this point. Something about being in 5th grade again and playing WWF War Zone on PS1.

Not sure what else to use credit on. Considering pre-ordering Dead Island Riptide. Some good perks on it, huh?

Ahh you are going to part with BL2.

Mathematically Correct.

I would keep it, but my backlog is insane now, havent touched it in weeks. And I have no plans to buy the DLC anytime soon. Might as well just wait for a GOTY edition on it, or get it on a really good sale down the line.

Trying to build up a ton of credit to blow in combination with my employee discount tomorrow night, 25% off almost anything at GS (Outside of consoles) is insane....

25% off at GS is almost as good as shopping at BBY or Amazon.

Lol, theres a few really good values I have found so far. I'm mostly just getting a ton of older used games I have wanted to play, though also getting Warriors Orochi 3 for WiiU and a WiiU Pro Controller
