Lol they’ve sucked for almost a year thanks for reviving a dead thread with whining

No problem, wasn't whining, its called sharing information for fellow CAG's

There's a reason why this thread wasn't posted in for nearly a year.

Sigh, I wish they would train there employees on trade ins. Girl refused to take one my games because it didn't match the artwork on the screen. Even asked her to scan it to show it would come up as the same thing but she wouldn't do it.

Check GS and prices were the same, but after my GCU ends most likely will start going more digital with my library, not worth time and effort to trade in unless one of these companies starts a new bonus program.

You know there was a 30% trade bump if you trade in 4 games at Gamestop, right?

honestly gs has the best trade promotions. dont understand why any bothers anywhere else. gs is always good customer service and best trade in values imo. ive tried other competitors and their values are always bad and their customer service is rude. ill bring some of my games to my local prestige store today to see what values i can get for them and preorder call of duty mw for ps4 while im there so i can pick it up on launch day.

Because I like to have credit at BB to still use with GCU, when that runs out might switch back to GS, I do like the $5 coupon a month, been using that.

Never done it at Best Buy before, but I'm going to maybe trade in a couple of Left Alives I bought. Two questions: Are there any promos available for a first timer?  And gift card only? No way to get cash?

No promos. Gift card only.

Did you find anything else that flips for a decent amount.  I'm having trouble finding anything else to buy with this (whether to keep or convert GS GC > BB GC), and no local GSes have 3 Left Alives :P

 

The vast majority of in-stocks I'm finding only trade for $3 at BBY

Quick question, I know Best Buy is more strict in canceling GCU if purchasing more than 2 copies of a game, but I don't know the intricacies.

I purchased GTA:V on PS3 & PS4 over the years prior to Best Buy strict 2 GCU purchases or GCU is getting canceled.

I'm looking to get back into GTAV. Will Best Buy cancel GCU if I buy the currently priced $29.99 Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition?

Unlikely, as that is a different sku than the original version. You should be fine!

With the xbox sale, I picked up a few Ultimate and Digital editions for great prices, so decided to trade vanilla versions in.

 

Assetto Corsa Xb1-2.40

Anthem Xb1-4.00

AC-Odyssey-8.00

God of War-6.00 (currently 9.99 on store, but might be free game soon)

I know this thread is usually dead but any good flips from GameStop to BB with the current B2G2? Better with Pur Elite Pro too.

Highest value I see is Pokemon Shield has a TIV of $23.

Thanks for pointing these games out. Good way to move GS credit to BB with a little extra profit.

Haven't traded to best buy in a while. Is it limited to 3 per copy per person? Also, trading in through the mail a seperate account or is it linked to in-store?

I mean when you can just do Gamestop to Amazon and then purchase a Best Buy Gift card with your Amazon gift card balance. I'd have to agree with you since those values are awful. So I guess if you didn't know that you could do that.... explains why this thread has been dead. You know besides the values being awful.

You can still do Gamestop > Amazon? I thought they killed that.

There are generally plenty of available games to buy at Gamestop that trade to Amazon at a 1:1 ratio and more times than not at a profit as well.
