Guys, if you don't hurry up and find another flip, my baby is going to have to reuse his diapers.

AMAZON PAYMENTS. No fee.

 

I have one account for me, one for my wife. I put all my FAR amex/visa whatever cards through there. By "sending money" to my wife, NO FEE, then she (or me logged in as her lol) withdraws to the bank account.

 

It requires to people, but it's the free way to do it.

That sounds like money laundering. I like it.

If you trade in multiple copies of a game, you might as well go all the way! :D

You don't have it far wrong, I recall reading stories of games being used to launder money using exchange schemes.

Physical game trading is smarter. Some people like to launder money $9999 at a time. That's too close to the limit for me. I like to launder mine 24.80 (with GCU bonus) a pop.

Scrolled a few pages and couldn't find an answer, but I apologize if this has been asked: How do you cancel a trade-in? Do you just not-send it? I couldn't find a cancel option online.

Yeah, I think you just not-send it, like with online Best Buy trades.

Just wanted to report that I got paid on a set of 5 copies of Gears 3. I hadn't seen anyone specifically mention having that one accepted yet.

I was a little worried about these, as I bought them used from Gamestop and one copy had some pretty significant scratching (no gouges or anything, but it probably would have gotten me charged a refurb fee at GS).

They accepted all 5 with no issues. If you're still on the fence about the Walmart trade program, I've gotta say I recommend it. I've done 2 in store trades and 5 online trades and haven't had a single issue.

I agree--I'm stunned by how well the online trade-ins have gone (5 transactions accepted for me, as well, so far), and while the in-store experience definitely needs work, if more crazy values pop up in the future, there's no way I'm hesitating on them. :bouncy:

That's interesting. I did my transactions in New York. It'd be great if we could get a list together and spot any discrepancies like yours.  

 

Sweet. It works in the only state that matters to me. Thanks for the info.

There was this guy who actually used GameStop as a bank. He'd deposit money into it by pre-ordering games, and then cancel the pre-orders for a withdrawal, and trade-in games to increase his account balance. He could also obviously buy games and get pre-order bonuses, and since GameStops are so common, he could get his money almost anywhere. And there wasn't a damn thing they could do about it, was pretty hilarious to read about.

 

The employees thought he was a dealer, but he was just doing it because he had a personal issue with supporting banks.

Sounds like an idiot who can't manage his money. I mean apparently he can keep track of all his money through Gamestop but having it all in a bank is just too hard to do. If he's overdrafting he obviously isn't keeping track of available funds.

I don't buy it. If that really did happen, lol about "nothing they can do about it". I'm sure GameStop corporate would be really pissed to find out they were consistently getting no-interest loans from the guy.

I don't really understand. Do you purchase something from her? Or can you just send money over amazon now... This would of been so helpful when I was Amazon rich but couldn't afford my rent...

Your trade just has to be shipped within a week of you making the trade; it doesn't matter when they receive it or let you know they received it.

He's referring to Amazon Payments, which is a separate service from amazon.com. It's basically like Pay Pal, and you cannot transfer your amazon gift cards to that service.

If he's getting charged for using an ATM then he's obviously using either the wrong Bank or ATM. It doesn't surprise me that there are "those" kind of people in the world though. From the reply he got though, I wouldn't say that he's brilliant. It's not that hard to stay away from over-drafting your account though. At least, if you know how to use and spend money.  :D/
