hows the line at bby

pretty tame, i went around 6:00pm tonight. there was a lot of shoppers, and only 4 person infront of me, while i was waiting. i think someone from SD hit up my store. the customer service employee doing my trade ins, told me a guy came to return a dozen copies of games that he got from bf for around $25 each today. and was trying to return it for the $59.99 retail price. i saw some girl returning an opened destiny bundle, another employee doing the return didn't even open the box, and just looked at the serial number outside the box. the funny thing about it, was the girl had the destiny bundle in a 4-Wheel Deluxe Folding Shopping Cart, like this one. http://www.walmart.c...8913265&veh=sem. i thought she was returning grocery to bestbuy at first. LOL

Its pretty terrible that people commit return fraud. Isn't there a limit on how many items you can actually return without receipt at Best Buy. I really hate people like that.

 

 

Edit:

Also I believe Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for PS3 is still a decent mover with Kongregate coupon + BDay.

Saw a posted sign at BB today at CS saying they'll accept a return for any item under $20 without a receipt.

They really need to inspect returns more carefully. i wouldn't want  to be the sucker who bought that return destiny bundle.

Are you sure it was a SDer? I wouldn't put it beneath some of the CAGs who have talked about return fraud before.

 

I saw some shady looking dude today at Best Buy trying to return an opened AC Xbox One bundle to Best Buy with a gift receipt. The best part was he was trying to get $400 back instead of the $350 it cost.

I was waiting in line yesterday while a family was discussing how they were going to return their opened copy of Destiny for Xbox 360 and say they thought it was for Xbox One. The father was going to say some shit along the lines that he is a police officer... He also had a very heavy foreign accent.

When they got to the front of the line while I was doing my trade in the CSR looked at them suspiciously and said "ok.... Let me go get you the Xbox one copy." The father replied "we don't have the Xbox one just yet."... So I swear to god she pulled an Xbox one ac bundle up from behind the counter and said "here we go, do you want to pay for it now?"

He was shocked and stunned. I wish I stuck around to see what happened but that CSR had seen some wild shit and was prepped for anything.

i also saw a kid throwing a temper tantrum on the floor near the mobile phone section, and the kid throw his shoes in my direction, while i was heading for the entrance exit. luckily i was alert, and side stepped it

You're supposed to let the shoes hit you, then fling them back at the parent!

oooh oooh or, after being hit, join the kid in the tantrum and complain for compensation from Bestbuy and their unwillingness to make their store a safe environment for the consumers. But agreed, post-Christmas stories of other shoppers are either hilarious or shameful on their part XD

No no no. Let it hit you, then sue the parents and Best Buy. Claim you are terrified of flying shoes and you're scarred for life

Ummmm... Did I just find out something absolutely amazing or am I missing something?!?!

I decided to fart around with best buys online trade program because I've never done it online... Just in store.

Are my eyes deceiving me? Three of the same game every SIX months?!

Would be nice if it was every 6 months. Know I've hit 3 copies on a few games, would still be hesitant to go over that. Good find though.

Pretty sure that popped up when they changed the online and started limited copies there.  Still separate from the in-store though which to the best of my knowledge is still a year.

When I did a trade, the CSR for whatever reason decided to do it as a return. lol Luckily we got it corrected. I didn't want both of us to get in trouble.

Yeah, that 3 per title via online trade has been there since the late summer. I believe it's 3 per title per console just like in-store.

I believe that Rick4life is referring to the 6 month period.  We had been told that it was 3 per title per console every year.

Yes. It went down because it's on sale this week. That's why I traded Unity yesterday in anticipation of this sale.

Quick question, does the 50% work with consoles or just video games?

I traded in DA:I for XB1 tonight and not only did I not get the 10% GCU but I also did not get a print out of the transaction as the lady who did my trade and the store manager were adamant it would be emailed to me. Is there any way I can get the GCU credit from the forums without having the trade ID number?

FINALLY got rid of all but 1 Kinect Rivals since it stayed at $22.50 a piece today

 

Did 3 on my account, 3 on gf's, 2 on dad's, then traded some other places 

 

Ugh.

Post on the forums with the store info (store number, CS lady's name, store manager's name) and what happened.  They should be able to help you out.
