I believe the second one is Plants vs Zombies 2. As for the first Idk honestly. Getting a little tired of people just using acronyms for games. I get that it's for secrecy but if the profit is minimal just come on man be real.

Plants vs zomibes isn't a boomerang, but it's a nice BB->GS mover right now. 

 

I can't figure out what the Fuck the others are from that post.

Actually Plants vs Zombies 2 is a boomerang at best buy but only for the XB1 version.

Yeah but its not really worth it.  You make like $2.xx and you do get points but you better off hitting up a redbox and buying a copy for 9.99 for a better profit. 

 

I am assuming the game he mentioning on sale is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle as its at a $25.xx base and on sale for 23.99 with GCU.

I don't think so. But that is a nice flip to gamestop. Especially if you a 50% bonus trade coupon with them.

I wont post boomerangs in the future if it causes that much trouble.

Posting them is fine. Just make sure we don't need a secret decoder ring to figure out which ones they are. I too had no idea what brta stood for.

I always try to lock it in via the online trade-in site right when I buy for flipping. Just need to get these copies to them in the next 10 days.

B.B. pays for UPS postage.

BB pays. I just had really bad luck on a trade-in though that I shipped. Maybe an isolated incident, but my 2 individual trades were received on 2/26/18 and I still haven't heard anything back. Tracking shows they were in fact delivered, so not sure WTF is going on.

 

If they try to gyp me on trade credit, I am going to be super pissed since they were $30 when I sent them, however, it says on the trade-in page "Your item must be received within 14 days of the estimate, or the estimate will be repriced to the current value."

 

Will not be doing another mail-in trade ever again.

I had trades that made it in time and they held on to them for a very long time before grading.  They gave me the lower TIV, but I emailed them and indicated when the packages had arrived; after that, they sent an emailed gift card with the difference.

I've been in your situation a handful of times - just email them, and they'll take care of it.

Thanks again. I didn't want to jump the gun when you originally replied a week or so ago to my initial post and preemptively email them and have them say "you probably just need to wait" or some other stupid excuse. But it has officially been "10 days" (the time they say to wait on the mail-in page) since they received it so I shouldn't get any excuse from them.

I had trades that made it in time and they held on to them for a very long time before grading. They gave me the lower TIV, but I emailed them and indicated when the packages had arrived; after that, they sent an emailed gift card with the difference.


Thanks. Last time I mailed anything in was 2010. Had about a half dozen trades, maybe more, that I had no issues whatsoever with back then.

Will probably email them and if that doesn't work just wait I guess.

I realize it could vary by location, but anyone have a general idea of how long it takes for mailed trade-in's to actually be delivered to Best Buy? Just trying to determine the last day I could ship out within the 14-day quote window. Thanks

Priority mail is typically 3-5 days

Ever been able to get them to credit you if your order was late? Does the lock-in day count as day 1 of the allowed 14? Thanks

It's so complicated to find it's under FAQ when you sign in to the best buy trade in account. It's under question 23.
