Huh, didn't know that. But I just looked at my copy. It has printed off art work, no manual, and the disc itself has a clear label over it from when I bought it YEARS ago from Blockbuster. Selling on ebay prob won't net me as much as Target due to those issues.

 

Maybe, maybe not. List all the issues with it and put it up for 7 days starting today at $33. If someone bids then you got cash instead of gift card, if it goes higher than you made more, and if it doesn't then you take it to Target on the 28th.

I doubt a game without manual, original box art, and the disc with a giant clear sticker that you can't remove will sell for 80% of what complete copies sell for.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Target has some guidelines for trade INS and values drop based on original box, manual, quality of disc, etc.

If the game itself is rare enough, and sought after enough, then you'd be surprised.

 

I'm currently selling a copy of Beast Wars Transmetals for the N64 on eBay for $20 that once (and for the most part still does) have a big giant blockbuster sticker on it. I bought it from Half Price Books for like $5 a month ago and then realized I actually already owned a copy, sans the sticker, and saw how much it went for on eBay so decided to sell it.

This too, Target probably won't even take the Diablo trade-in as is, so really, nothing to lose by trying to list it on eBay.

Target trade-in guidelines online ask the following questions.

 

Is the game scratched/cracked? Y/N

No, it just has a sticker on it

 

Does it have the original artwork? Y/N

This is a no, but it looks just like the original, a collector would notice the difference, but a store wouldn't

 

Does it have the original case? Y/N

Yes it does

 

So to me it would be much easier to trade into Target then to hope I sell it for $40 on ebay.

The sticker alone might be enough to foil that attempt, but by all means go for it. Personally I'd even take $20 in cash over a $30 gift card any day but that's me.

People whining about having to do their job is annoying. Hence you no longer have a job and people buy most of their reading materials from the internet. Fuck off and go work at McDonald's now.

Best Buy managed to out-Gamestop Gamestop. Good show. :applause:

8-) Real gamers don't shop at GameStop 8-)

Lol the trade 2 get 1 game for 9.99 are among the worst trade in "deals" in history across the board.  It's always trade two recent release grade A games, and 10 dollars to get a game. Pathetic deal.

Depends, their were few good trades with sales on games all around last time to take advantage of this promo since you really didn't have to buy the new game. They just gave you the credit on games (even if they werent two of them) to do as you please.

 

Thanks OP as always for the early ads. Look forward to your ads come holiday season! :)

Actually this promo wasn't too bad if you took advantage of the recent Blockbuster BOGO on games up to $29.99, as they had copies of BLOPS 2 for PS3 and 360 for $30 apiece pre-owned.  So you could've bought 2 for $30, then paid $10 for the game of your choice. Not to mention most of the Wii U games that qualify for the promo were also cheap at Blockbuster during their BOGO sale.

 

Of course, the promo page also says you can just use the $50 on anything from BB, so you're not even locked into buying the game really.

 

Gamestop used to do this all the time and if you got a clerk that didn't really understand or know about the promo, you could just say nothing and have them load the $50 onto a gc for you and leave without buying anything.

 

FYI: This is the current page for this promotion: http://www.bestbuy.c...1&CJPID=1312731

Not to mention most of the Wii U games that qualify for the promo were also cheap at Blockbuster during their BOGO sale.

That's still not a great deal, considering that you could have gotten more than $25 for each copy just trading it in directly at either Best Buy or GameStop.

So now that the values on some of those game tanked can you still go to BB and say "hey, this ad states I'd get at least $50 for these 2 games...I want my credit"

 

That's still not a great deal, considering that you could have gotten more than $25 for each copy just trading it in directly at either Best Buy or GameStop.

It wasn't a deal at all. More of a suggestion. Also, it states "at least $50", so yes, some were trading in for more than $25 each.

Weekend sale I think. My best guess is that it'll still be the games on sale this week, and probably one or two extra knocked down. Also, Zumba I hope. With Zumba not being on sale during Amazon's Gold Box, I'm kind of going on horrible work-out game sale withdrawal.

With a $33 sale (the price talked about earlier) you would still wind up with around $29 in your pocket.

 

FYI, I sold that "acceptable" condition copy of Best Wars Transmetals for N64, with a mostly scraped off Blockbuster sticker, for just under $24 + Shipping.

I'm hoping Star Trek stays on that list! I have 2 copies that I'd definitely trade in for a $50 GC.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Best Buy's best deals are usually from coupon screw-ups and one-day sales.

 

Other than that they are overpriced (imo retail = overpriced....it's the CAG way)
