That 50% bonus is wicked awesome. If values hold, which i think they would for at least the first day, the $30 off deal this week could lead to some great bb to bb flips

Definitely grabbing Metro Redux for XB1 and maybe Bound By Flame. I think it might have been cheaper than $28 before? I can't remember

You might be thinking of the gift card offer Best Buy had for BbF at its release, though I can't remember if it was a $10 or $15 GC.

Very nice, very nice indeed. Might pick up Metro for that price plus a gift card. Finally, a trade bonus!

I'm guessing the $10 GC for Metro is a part of the 'Pre-order and get $10 back' promo?

Metro Redux after GCU is $39.99 + tax, comes out to $42 in Florida. Factor in the $10 GC then it's $32 for two games in the end, $16 apiece for two brand new remastered releases. Not bad at all.

And thank god the trade bonus is back. Time to dump off some shit I'll never play again to put towards games I may get around to in 2018. Mo credit mo problems

I came for the wild story.  But the 50% trade in bonus is good enough.  :)

Nope, it's a fast-and-easy "Here's a free gift card" kind of promo, no preorder required.

Great Deal on Metro with GCU, I'll be picking that up for the PS4 along with Madden 15. Nice to see a trade in bonus as well.

I currently have Metro preordered online for in store pickup, getting the gift card shouldn't be a hassle right?

it will probably have a base around $27.

Just googled it, and it was a $10 gc. I'll get it since I have some certs and it seems like it hasn't been on sale much.

As long as you bring a copy of the ad with you when you pick up the game and point out the offer, you shouldn't have any problems.

C'mon guys - we go through this every time a TIV bonus comes around. Values tank, you get essentially the same amount you will get if you went in today.

This. And people fail to realize you get more points towards elite when there is no trade bonus then when there is one.

Lower values tend to stay the same.

I would have figured xbox one kinect less would have been $400 w/$50 gc being they have the madden bundle. I'm eager to use my movers coupon. Halo Master chief is all I care for as I want my Ps4 as my main console. Decisions decisions.

Get the bundle with the Mover's Coupon, sell off the Madden 15 voucher for $50-$55? I imagine some people would have no qualms paying that much.

This. Older games with the lower values is what makes BB bonuses good imo.

That's true. I'll wait & see how the ea access hold up on Thursday I believe since only people with an ea account get to play it 5 days early. If the reviews are bad then Madden is going to bomb big time ! I'd expect that game to be $30 in September if it sux.

If you're talking about the copy in the bundle, you can't trade it in because it's a voucher.

Any idea how this works for people that pre ordered online?

Or will I have to go buy in store the day of then return the one I pre ordered when it comes in the mail?

I'm not sure how it will work for ship-to-home preorders. If you don't mind canceling now (either online or through 1-888-BESTBUY) and reordering when the $10 GC offer appears, I recommend doing so.
