Yeah the fine print says: 

 

*Receive at least $50 in Best Buy gift cards to use toward the purchase of the popular games above or other items at Best Buy.

 

 

...although I think getting a general gift card may make it better

so you get a 59.99 game for 9.99 in addition to how much they give you for the trade in?

No, I think they are just promoting their trade values by saying that if you trade in those games you get a new game for $9.99

No. You just get a $50 Gift Card which you can use to get a $59.99 game for $9.99 OR you can use it for anything else.

I traded in Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13 today for more than $25 each. BO2 got $30 and FIFA got $25.50 thanks to the 50% bonus promo going on right now. Just something to keep in mind if you're looking to take advantage of this. But it's not bad once the 50% is gone.

The small print says at least $25, so people would still be getting the $30 for BO2. This whole promo they are doing is a confusing way of saying that the games listed above will get you at least $25 for those games.

This is a fake promo and not CAG worthy. That's why I thought everyone failed to post it Sunday. You get your credit, can use for whatever and no one would pay $59.99 for games on that list.

True but at least people will know what games they can trade in for at least $25.

Some of these values are good or comparable to eBay. WWE '13 and Killzone Trilogy in particular. Is there a link to this offer from the main page anywhere?

If you mean from the front page of Bestbuy.com go to Products>Video Game>Video Game Trade-In then scroll down to Related offers.

Thanks Moose, that's what I was looking for. Wanted to make sure I could find it in case it gets brought up when I go in-store.

This might work in someones favor if they drop the value of any of those games and it goes below $25 after bonus. You can argue you are supposed to get at least $25.

does this deal work for every game that is 59.99 such as dynasty warriors 8 for example?

There is no deal here. More like a suggestion. Or an attempt for BB to confuse everyone. Just look up the value of the games and trade them in as normal. Buy something with the credit if you like.

All the games listed are at $17 base, with 50% it is $25.50 and with GCU, they are $27.20. So like klimb stated, it's more of a suggestion rather than a deal. If you can get these games cheap, might have lots of potential. You can snag Defiance from GS for ~$20 after birthday and PUR, and the Walking Dead for $19.99 new only, which isn't bad, but not great either.

Even if not a deal I'm glad this was posted.  I'm going to trade in the Killzone Trilogy and pick Shin Megami Tensei IV.  Makes the $50 price more bearable.

Take in your trade, but hold on to your credit and wait for a sale.

I think they have. Some are reporting bans being lifted.


Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

My ban was magically lifted. Never called anyone.
