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

Ask in the Gamestop thread and see what they say  O:)

So I did a trade-in via mail for the first time.  It has been over 3 weeks since UPS delivered it.  I don't see any emails about it being received or my egift card.  Who do I contact?  Regular BB customer support?

Bestbuytradein@dealtree.com, or reply to the original email confirmation for your trade and explain the issue (probably the better way to go since your trade-in # will be there for reference).

Oh no why? It’s a problem? I really don’t know about this. I know GameStop told me no. But I have a game that I was sent a physical copy of and I just want digital instead but wondered if I can get full value.

that is fraud. 

 

BB won't do it, Target and Walmart might do it without receipt

Does anyone remember how to sort games by trade in value on Best Buy’s website? I thought you had to put in “*” or something but it doesn’t seem to be working. Thanks.

I have some games purchased during the holidays that likely aren't returnable anymore (haven't tried yet) because the return date has passed so... I'd like to get what I can for them to minimize any loss. If I trade them into Best Buy via mail-in, will the games still be accepted if I don't even open them? Anyone have personal experience with this? I know GameStop will only accept opened games. Thanks for any info.

I want to know Best Buy Trade In Policy. Can I buy 3 copies of the same platform and another 3 on a different platform, for example 3 copies of Star Wars Battlefront 2 Ps4 and another 3 for Xbox One and still not hit the trade limit. I want to move some GS credit to B.B.

The information you're asking about is in the first post. They track games by SKU.

Yes 3 of each title per platform.

I pick up 6 copy of battlefront 2 today but the best buy i went to today only allow me to trade in 3.  Not going to argue with them, i can always go to another best buyy for it.  i locked in best buy.com trade in just in case.   This got me thinking, do the best buy.com trade in and in store trade in related?  technically we can trade in 6 in store and 6 online?

3 copies per system per year. If you bought and tried to trade six copies that employee at BB just tried to save you from a one year trade ban.

They track trades by SKU using an automatic system. This is all in the FAQ, and also discussed again recently here in this thread.

of course i know, i mean 3 copy of ps4 and 3 copy of xbox one.  Do they consider in store trade limit as online trade limit

Yes. Online and in store are the same pool of trades from my understanding.

In the case of you having 3 per system you just had an employee who didn't fully know their own policy. I traded 3x each at the same time with no cases.

GCU says you can only buy 3 of each title for each system with the discount. I am unsure of anything beyond that.

Its 3 ps4 / 3xbox / 3 switch /  3 special edition etc.  People have gone over the 3 limit and nothing has happened. But you never know with best buy, lol.

Wow i had a weird wtf moment at best buy tonight. I bought 4 battlefronts on different systems and traded them in today. Then i bought a 3rd xbox copy and left 1 store because i had to get to a gamestop before they closed.

Went to a 2nd best buy closer to that gamestop to trade in my last copy of battlefront and cs clerk looks at his screen and says, "Wow. You bought a lot of these haven't you."

I just say ummm sure.

Like wtf i didn't know they could see your transactions like that now. Can they see the purchase dates and everything?
