Time to trade in my second copy of Saints Row IV. Will gladly take $11.06 for it.

I don't see that value for :ps3: or :360:, though the latter lists $11.70...

Don't be so worried about limits. I doubt they'll use ID to enforce it.

In most state they'll be required to enforce it. Pawn shop laws and all.

Please allow this to work on prepaid visas. Even if not oh well. This should be fun the employees I've seen at walmart gaming sections have no clue what is going on.

Any really good values I'm missing? Best I saw was $30.80 for ps3 Ghosts when you can get it @ Target for cheap

Walmart is the biggest retailer making hand over fist cash and you just have them a primer on how to run this? I assume they've thought of these things, if not they will learn when loopholes get exploited.

all i know is there is still a bin at my local walmart with about 25-30 copies of those burger king xbox 360 games, so if they screwed it up that bad the first time....

Oh? Do tell.

 

It's mostly Nintendo first party stuff. Mario 3D World, Pokemon X/Y, Skyward Sword, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Zelda: ALBW...

People need to stop worrying about what the store itself sells the game for.   :roll:

Stop acting so damn sketchy then.

It's not about being sketchy.  It's about certain Wal-Mart employees being stupid as hell.  I don't know what kind of training Wal-Mart gives these guys but it's completely asinine when I'm stopped and questioned.  I guess what's really bad is that I highly doubt any of them have ever stopped a shoplifter before..... I mean do they expect a thief to just feel a sudden pang of remorse and break down during their "interrogation"?  And then just stand there and wait for the police to pick them up?  It's just a notch above Sam's Club where a fucking guard will actually take your receipt and go through your buggy marking off your items. 

 

I've never taken a cent from Wal-mart (though lord knows they've tried to rob me with mis-priced merchandise and employees who refuse to pricematch ads) so I don't appreciate being treated like some parole-breaking miscreant when I walk out the store.  It's an annoyance and it's a waste of time, and those who know me know that's something I don't tolerate lol.

Nonsense.  I don't think even Gamestop is that bad (even if the game is still new).  I've seen these copies of Other M at all my local stores too, along with full priced copies of Monster Hunter 3 for Wii, Skyward Sword, Pikmin 2, ect.  I wonder how much longer these games are gonna just sit there and what will ultimately happen to them....

That's what happens when Best Buy prices games low enough that you can profit by trading it right back in. :lol:

Then don't fucking shop there. You are an example of a customer I don't like dealing with.

Lol at people complaining about people that work there. This isn't a specialty store, children, they hire people that need a job and that's it. It's 2014 and some of you still walk into retail stores expecting employees to know the products. They're there for a job and a paycheck, if you want someone that's PAID to know their shit go to a professional store that deals in the products you want to know about.

 

Funny how some of you are irked that they apparently won't pay you cash either. This is Wal-Mart, one of the few companies whose numbers only go up every year with profits breaking records every time, they sure as hell aren't giving you anything but credit.

I have a feeling I will use this if I need some MS Points in a hurry. So if I know that GS is giving me $2 for a game that walmart is offering $5...well, now I am getting a little more off ms currency. Otherwise, sites like glyde, 99gamers, or even the trading section on this site will be my first options.

It's not in demand and they sure as hell don't want to stock up on grimey second-hand units that won't sell either.

Well this is gonna be such a pleasant surprise come next Wednesday... just more work I'm gonna have to do since my crew is useless!

I already know all the associates in my area are just gonna play deaf, dumb, and stupid, like they do with everything in electronics, and just pass the buck to either Me or the CSMs, whom will either have no clue what to do or just pass it right back to me!

I can't even apologize for how the associates act in electronics because they just don't care at all. 

PSN Cards, XBL Cards, and Nintendo Cards don't fall under Gift Cards so you can get them with any WM Gift Cards. Only cards like those AMEX, Discover, Etc. Etc. are considered Gift Cards (the ones by the Checkout lanes)

I solute you NY Gamer.  Your post gives me hope that there are still some hardworking people out there!

I'm still salty about letting all those XB1 games go for cheap before BBY resurrected the values temporarily. Ain't nobody got time to mess with WalMart.

Not worth the effort, I did just compare ZombieU @  Target / RadioShack and Walmart, they all use cexchange. Walmart was 7, Target 5 and Radioshack was not worth mentioning.

 

Looks like walmart requires case as it went to 0.00 when I removed the case.

I just barely got the papers with all the info for this earlier (yet to read), I work in Electronics there, but I don't see this doing well much like the trade in for phones.
