This is more Clinton and Bush's fault this time. The internet was all the rage and both, Clinton and Bush, knew that Best Buy would be the go to for all their Internet related questions. Just as the Sith slowly gained control of the galaxy, Best Buy has acquired control of our national security and, more importantly, our wallets.

I wonder how much they charged the feds to install Norton on their computers...

So I go to trade in infamous and was gonna keep the case but they tell me the original case is required . I was gonna argue but I checked the trade in faq and it does mention something along the lines of the original packaging and manual is required . Is this a new thing ? I've never had an issue in the past .

It depends on your store. The ones I've visited in my area have never minded disc or cart-only trades, but I've read several posts in the past detailing experiences similar to yours.

There`s so many ways, 5x rz pts promo, pre-paid visa`s, trade in`s sharing GCU...


They rarely have that promo, which is another reason I am disliking the elite plus tier. I thought we were supposed to have special events, when is the last time that has happened? And the deals for the elite plus people were terrible. But I am sharing GCU on this site and others :)

45-day return period + free Expedited shipping on all Bestbuy.com purchases is nothing to sneeze at, but I agree that for something you're supposed to get for spending $3500+ in a year (yeah, I totally did that to get my Elite Plus :roll:), those are somewhat lame rewards.

It depends on some people and some stores. Some stores have employees who are aware that they don't need the case, but others want the case because they don't want to be in trouble. Then there's actual store policies.

So what's the official best buy policy for trading in with/without a case ? I always thought it didn't matter unless the store gives you a hard time.

They usually do the 3x promo 4-5 times a yr, they seem open to making them all 5x but more than 19 people need to speak up especially at a time when BB is changing at a faster pace. Based on their previous pattern it`s about time for another one

There`s like 3-5 other really good perks that have threads too that would really benefit elite plus members.

If you share GCU, how do you make sure you're not purchasing more than 3 of the same game? Or do you just share it for trades?

I have two accounts and I keep track with an excel document.  I do orders for people,  I rarely trade for another game.  I do the same thing for my Trade ins. (keep track using an excel document)

thanks for the pointer, I added my comments supporting more 5x point days due to the jump to $3500 to get to elite plus.

if you have it, (IMHO), you should just trade the case/manual too... we all want to buy games that are 'complete'...

There's no policy regarding cases. The game must look like it's in working condition. Store policies add cases as requirements.

Infamous Second Son is in the system as the Collector's Edition instead of the regular edition. If he takes it with the case, then it will be rejected because as usual, Best Buy isn't doing what it should be doing.

missed out on getting an extra $8 cause I had a newbie but oh well

plus it doesn't help that there are 2 accounts associated with my number

$36 for FIFA was good since I paid $14 during that amazon flash sale

$40 for titanfall was good too, I'll pick it up again when it goes $20-25

I wonder how much the TiVs will change tomorrow? Right now they're offering the 50% and you can lock in some good deals. Infamous would bring $64 in TiV, but I figure that'll get fixed in an hour or so.

Loving this 50% right now. These crap games I'm running through only dropped a $1 and one went up $3. I'm going to get much more than I thought was. Fable Anniversary fucked me over though, traded it in for $22 Friday. Base dropped $1 just now so now it gets $30.40 :(

Should've waited today to trade in a few games. Missed out on $2.50-$5.70 on some games. Oh well. Also MLB 14 trades in for $32 base! That's $51.20 after GCU and 50%.

Nice find, no preowned near me, though, and I don't trust the trade in value to hold. If I were going to be near BB today, it might even be worth it to buy new from GS for a credit transfer (I have a good amount at GS, none at BB).

Even better, $44.80.

 

$51.20 for The Show 14 is pretty wild. I don't recall a value ever legitimately being that high.

 

Also, South Park would be a cheap rental if you bought it last week with GCU and trade it in now. I'm regretting not buying it now.
