I did because I didn't want to keep it. It's ok. I will email best buy and see if they send me the difference.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Just got back from BB and I got $45 for my PS3 Madden 25. Asked the guy 3x if it was still $45 during the process.

 

Checked the online value and it's been readjusted to $45

 blame the "genius" who was spamming "flips" in every deals thread, because he thinks he is contributing , and helping lurkers/cags.

I think you read that post wrong.

You're certainly a genius if you think providing the current TIV's in a spreadsheet on the forums is somehow telling BestBuy which TIV's need to be dropped. And considering the games so far mentioned as having dropped were not even mentioned in the thread makes your argument as dumb as a box of rocks. Perhaps they have a little more advanced critical thinking skills than you and simply look at the # of games traded in per day of a specific title, or perhaps future/current market price. If you've been paying any kind of attention at all, you would have seen how fast Amazon reacts to trade in trends with their TIV's. Last week they changed a TIV within 30 mins of a game being offered by GameFly. No lists required.

You guys are making me laugh, they have obviously adjusted everything by 2-3 dollars to negate the +10. the same way they 1/2'd the price of everything before the +100% promotion. I doubt BB is monitoring this thread to save a few $$'s here and there. It's the mega flippers who are trading 10 copies of Madden, or folks walking in buying copies of Game X and then trading it straight back for a profit. You know who you are ...

Online trades are going to be delayed I suspect. One of my Happy Feet trades is still stuck between Verification and pay out mode even though my other online trades were paid out weeks ago. A lot of members have mentioned waiting on getting their previous online trades paid still.

you have to actually click on the trade it button to show the actual trade in value. THe trade in value they show are all incorrect, or not updated.

I think Bestbuy read the 2 for $10 list and made sure to put all those titles under the $5 threshold.

On another note Sleeping dogs dropped to $5 base and if the values updated tonight instead of last night I would've got $12 for it but now I'll have to see if GS gives more for it.

I do have a stack of nine games with values of $5 or more. But was hoping it would include some others since I'm trying to clear out the games I no longer desire to play. Also, I hope the additional $10 will be done automatically after every third game as oppose to having three separate transactions to get $10 bonuses for every three games.

check the used price of the game on gamestop. gamestop usually gives you around 25% in tiv to what their used price is

Just excited for this week's round of "on sale" used copies of Call of Duty Games.  Gotta spend all this extra trade in credit on something!


Selling on Amazon as Gaming Cheaply

 

Please feel free to PM me if there is a game you want to purchase cheaper than Amazon Warehouse or Gamestop.

Best Buy is trolling us. I'll wait for the 100% bonus to return before I board the flip train to Flipsville again.

Just got $49.50 for my madden after GCU bonus. Will probably put down a pre-order on the ps4 version tonight for in-store pickup.

I'm debating trading in my ps3 and vita copies of MLB 13 tomorrow for the 3/$10 because they dropped so hard in value and will prolly keep dropping.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Is it an issue if I can't send in all the games to BB that were initially in my trade-in transaction?  The emails they send have a different number for each. My problem is the shipping on a couple of games is going to take too long to arrive from when I locked it in and then the TiV just plummeted. I really don't want to miss out on the TiV for the games I can ship out.  

Anyone know if I just send in what I have if that causes a problem or not?  If so it would be worth it for me to just go to a store grab the couple I need and take a small loss on those to keep the high TiV on the others. Even when compared with the 3/$10 promo.
