I don't think there is a minimum now, I just looked up Madden 07 for PS3 since I thought an old game would get next to nothing and it only gets $0.22.


Thanks

Thank you for the info. Any idea if you can cancel a trade-in in order to re-lock in and kick back the expiration date? If not, can you just create a new order even if the limit of 3 is exceeded (in total) by doing so?


I usually just create a new one and let the other one expire. It isn't like Amazon, where it keeps track of how many trades are currently open.

Hey BlackBeard sent you a PM on another possible Best Buy loophole or glitch sorry you could not use the last one I sent but I think this one will be great. Not sure if you get massive amounts of private messages.


I believe he's on vacation this week.

But do share this glitch you found.

Daaaaaaammmmmmnnnnn :(

 

I'm so glad I traded in Crash/Agents of Mayhem a couple of days ago. Got $50 for it. Now, I'd barely get $20.

Man, that original $1 minimum was amazing at times. Flipped so many Gamestop PS2 games that were like $0.25 for like $2.10 at Best Buy when they did a 100% bonus + 10% GCU. Sure, GameStop employees thought I was weird for buying a bunch of horrible old PS2 games, and Best Buy thought I was odd for trading them in, but good times.

Damn, I was going to use Metal Gear V on Xbox one to try and move some gamestop credit to BB so I can get a new game w GCU but that one took a dive too.

Can anyone point me in the direction of another possible credit mover? (I read another thread that you can sort Best Buy trade-in values by using the * but I can't seem to get that to work).

There are some trade-ins with a minimal loss of just a few cents but it's not worth burning a B2G1 coupon for.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. I sure hope Gamestop has some decent black friday prices.

Better contact them ASAP or they will steal the games since that's their default if you don't contact them.

I can confirm that contacting them normally gets you the intended trade value. I got same damage message about one disc. Emailed with literally 1 sentence and 3 business days later, I randomly got the egift card for that game.

Yep.

With preowned pulled from the site and stores and values plummeting, it is over.

I'll miss $44 trade in values on new games.

6 weeks after I sent in my trades, I got an email saying they were received. I already got and spent the gift card for the full amount 2 1/2 weeks ago after contacting customer service. Now this new email states I get $2.00 instead of almost $18 because 1 game was damaged (it wasn't) and the other 2 had the quotes expire and are now worth $1 each. If I get an extra $2 for free, I'll take it but it is messed up that if I had not emailed them, they would try to give me a lower value for expired quotes when I shipped the games the same day I placed the trade in order.

I've gotten two emails like this over the last week or two. Not sure if I'm actually going to receive a GC in the mail like the emails stated, but free is free, if it shows up. Definitely some strangeness with their system.

Hard to say. They still haven't even added Destiny 2 or NBA 2k18 yet which came out over a month ago or close to a month ago.
