Has anyone got the 'only 1 game title per year for both systems trade allowed' policy at Best Buy?

 

I tried to trade in two games of the same title for the same system, but my Best Buy apparently restricts it. Doesn't seem to be a nationwide policy from some of the other postings here.

 

Do you think I'll be able to just go back to the store and return the remaining game tomorrow, or have they entered the information on my account? My store did scan both games, then took my e-mail address and ID card...

I had some guy tell me they can't do two games.  He wasn't too sure so called over some higher ups.  I told him I had done it before.  He said they can't accept multiple copies cuz people could be making money from trading in (I said nothing, but that is inane logic -- so if I received a game for free as a gift, I can't trade it in cuz I'm making a profit?  ffs).  So I asked him to check the TIV in the computer.  He hemmed and hawwed until a couple of people including the manager came over.  None of them knew for sure.  I told them I had done it before.  They gave me the same line about people making money.  Finally the manager had this bright idea -- let's check the TIV.  The TIV was 25 frickin cents (I already knew it would be low; the game was Kinect Adventures).  The manager gives the guy an ugly look and storms off.  He took both copies.  :O

 

If it was Far Cry 3, I hope they ban you.

 

 

What does it matter what he's trading in?  Lol.

It's very YMMV.  Per their wording, no.  But technically the computer allows it.  So it depends on who you get.  I got turned down on Sunday; tried a different store on Tuesday and it worked.

Order two Far Cry 3 online, pick it up next week for the $39.99 price and pray it goes on sale for $19.99 the week after?

Still haven't played it but a buddy told me co-op missions are pretty cool. 

 

Would rather do a sure thing and purchase a used copy from Gamestop (and burn up credit) but I don't think used copies dropped whenever new copies went $19.99.

I managed to get it today.  PM'd Target's in-store price of $19.99 for Far Cry 3 and walked out with a $40 GC from Best Buy to boot.  Again, it's YMMV - I was shot down yesterday when trying to do the Black Ops 2 deal (but that had more to do with the fact that I was trying to PM the Revolution Pack edition to the vanilla version on Amazon).

I was really hoping someone would have Deadpool on sale by now. I wanted to PM that and Tomb Raider and still try to get the $50 GC. Oh well.


Let's go O's!

I got insanely lucky today, maybe because I went into the store at 8:40 pm. Girl at the cash register PM'd two copies of Black Ops 2 w/ the Revolution Map Pack for $30 each. I figured it was worth a shot, showed her the mobile Amazon page on my iPhone and she did it no problem, called the manager over for the override and by the time he got there games were already in the bag. He did it quickly without even really looking at what I was price-matching. Before I swiped my card I asked her, "I'm getting a giftcard too right?" I noticed it on the screen but I wanted to make sure anyways. She said that I would only get the giftcard if I buy it full price. So I pondered for a couple seconds and as soon as I was about to say cancel the transaction she says, "It's only for $5 anyways isn't it?". That's when I informed her that it's actually supposed to be $50, she was shocked. So I showed her the ad and she said you know what, just go through with it until the end and we'll see what happens. Low and behold, it prompts the cashier to give me a gift card for $50. So my advice to everyone that successfully PM's the games. Don't say anything, just go through with the transaction all the way until the end.

I don't see it posted... anybody try to use the @gamer coupon for Tomb Raider in conjunction with this?  Just realized the coupon is still valid until Saturday... might try to go back and see if they can add it to my purchase.

I swear some if you guys almost end up talking yourselves out of deals. I guess anxiety is the norm and never discretion. JHC.

Got in twice on the Buy 2 games and GC! Will trade them after I played them by the end of the week. Then it'll be enough for a free 3ds! So glad it went through.

GM at my Best Buy was a bit flustered when I PM'ed 8 games to Amazon (Riptide x2, Tomb Raider x2, Defiance x2, Blops II, MLB13). She read and re-read the PM policy to find a way to deny me, didn't see a decent one, wrote her override code on a blank piece of paper for the CSR, and walked away to deal with other customers.  With tax, net outlay for the whole set was about $53.

 

Kept Tomb Raider and MLB 13, popped the rest to GS and finished paying off my PS4 pre-order.

The BB Pricematch/Gift Card deal sounded like so much fun, I had to get one in on the last day.  I took it easy on them: just PM'd Far Cry 3 to Target for $20 (took a picture of the shelf tag on my phone) and payed full asking price ($40) for Dead Island: Riptide, and got a $39.98 Gift Card in return.  A net cost of about $20 for both games, after GC.  I also found a Tritton Warhead 7.1 headset on Clearance for $125.xx, so I grabbed that, as well.  It's a hell of a deal, and I figured it would look a little better to spend around $200 than just dropping $60 on two good games and getting a $40 GC in return.

Ended up getting defiance, Tomb raider,  Dead Island CE(needed override but since they were on clearance went smooth) forgot far cry was in-store only. Oh well still came out well ahead in the end.
