They have tried, but I usually argue it. There is nothing in their policy that excludes it.

Unrelated hour, looks like a bunch of new releases got added! I see Battlefront 2 and COD WWII has been added, among others

There has been various reports of some BBs not accepting them w/o cases.  However, it's not standard operating procedure to not allow a disk only trade in.

Still haven't added Forza 7, COD is $22. Might wait for the trade 4 for 40% with GS.

Yeah. There's a reason why nobody has posted in this thread in a month. Looks like BB's getting out of the used games business.

So sad as they used to put Gamestop to shame. I've been doing all my trading in at Gamestop now which I haven't done in years.

I actually found a bunch of trade in receipts in a box last night (from back when I kept them in case I needed to double check if I had traded something in 3 times before or not). What a windfall this was when it first started. Combining the Blockbuster B1G1 sales and Best Buy Trade in helped me to upgrade my 360, then to buy my xbox one, all for a small fraction of what it actually cost. 

 

Then there was the reward zone points gift card loophole (where buying gift cards with gift cars - the only way to combine all of your trade in gfit cards into one) would get you points. I abused the hell out of that. $10 trade in. Go to customer service and ask them to "combine" my new $10 gift card and my $250 gift card I already had. Get 260 points (250 = $5) for combining the gift cards. I may miss that loophole more than the good TIV's. haha

But with GCU, I want the credit at Best Buy.  Amazon gives $19 for it, GameStop was like $18.  IF it's not listed online, then they don't accept it, right?

Mailed in a trade-in last month and UPS delivered it on 12/19.  Been 3 weeks and still no GC. I did call customer support a week after delivery, and was told their systems showed the game as received. Anyone else have a similar experience lately?

Yeah, took my UC4 about 3+ weeks for shipping and review process over the holidays.

Gift cards come via email 7-10 days after you receive a processing email - you should've received it by now. Try emailing support, they're much more helpful.

Traded in Wolfenstein II for 28/31 (GCU), got to love it, paid 25 at BF, so basically they paid me $5 to play it, nice!

Any luck? I'm a similar boat. I mailed it in on 12/11, and UPS says it was delivered on 12/22. Best Buy tracking says "Waiting to Receive" :(

Quote generated on 12/11, sent 12/18, delivered 12/19 (same state, lol).  Didn't hear anything after that. Sent an email to trade in Customer Service on 1/16, they replied back back 1/17, got my gift card today, 1/20.

 

Definitely sticking to instore in the future, only shipped these ones due to the value tanking.

The real thing is though why don’t most people try to sell stuff themselves? With Facebook garage sales popping up sell in your local area, or offer up etc. i realize eBay and Amazon can take their fees selling but i figured I’d try and make $40 back on a $60 game before someone gave me $20. Usually never am quick enough at beating the games though.

Only thing i wouldn’t mind is trading my Xbox one to get the S or the X, but not when they only are offering $60 and selling them for $200 online. Guess I’ll be keeping that then and can’t see having 2 xboxes unless one of my brothers were interested, One doesn’t have a system the other has a PS4. Recently passed down my 1 Tb WD external to my brother for his PS4 when the 4 TB WD went for $80 at Best Buy, not gonna charge him for it when I’ve had it a couple years now. And gave my other brother my 32” Phillips LCD when i recently upgraded to the Samsung 40” MU6290 4K on a $349 from $549 Best Buy sale.

Yeah I finally got my gift card after e-mailing customer service on 1/9. I received the GC on 1/17, almost a month after UPS delivered the game.  Oddly enough, the status is still "Waiting to Receive" on the trade-in website.

 

Definitely sticking with in-store the next time I do a trade-in.

Usually takes some time before they list new games.

Do any stores still allow returns of sealed games without a receipt for full price? Walmart?
