Here's another nice little service they add (or at least they previously did) to their "new" games; the employees can take them home to play and bring them back to sell as new....


Exactly. Thats what I presume happened to the copy I ended up with today. It has a new sticker on it, and the game looks almost untouched, but i bet someone played it at home and brought it back. And I know they had to take the disc out originally and put it in when they knew I was coming to pick it up, because I called and they said they were holding me a "new" copy.

I tried taking advantage of this promotion yesterday and was told that the promotion wasn't available in their system. do they have to access your PUR account for this promotion?

Yep, all they HAD to do is access your PUR account to activate the values. 'HAD' being the operative word, since the deal ended on the 16th.

Technically, yes--they need(ed) to scan your PUR card and proceed to the final step of the trade-in before the increased values (would have) appear(ed).

That is okay, I had a relative pick up a new copy of dungeon siege 3 for me last year only for me to open (peel of that "sealing sticker") it a month or two later and it had a bunch of scratches on it.

I'd much rather buy new from BB anyway so I can take advantage of the 2-month price match period.


Didn't know they price matched games? What's the deal with that? I knew they had a PM guarantee on TVs and such, but didn't know that extended elsewhere.

Well I took back my "new" copy of Walking Dead that they sold to me not being sealed and I got my money back. Wasn't paying full price for an opened game. My "like new" copy from Amazon for $22 is much more worth my while.

This promotion ended yesterday, so the value is no longer $15.

It may still be active, sometimes they are slow to end promos.
