All $5 games for PS3 and Xbox 360 remained the same. So with GCU they went from $5.50 to $8.00. Otherwise, this information is accurate. It's a 2% increase, which really is nothing...

From a broad perspective, on average, there is no difference between the 50% bonus prices and the prices 1 week before the promotion.

The art of the flip is to find the games that do return more, which is very few. And it seems random which ones do,Mao you can't stock up to flip. They've got it figured out.

I thought we all knew that higher price games are the same if not lower with the 50% and only the lower price games are better with the bonus

Whats to stop someone from buying call of duty, master chief and ac unity from target (with the buy 2 get 1 free) and flipping them at best buy for $20 profit per game?

Which is why I asked. I'm a newbie to the trade in game. So when do we know the trade in value of games for that week?

Why couldn't the B2G1 free be for this ad? Crazy new release week


Yeah, no doubt. I told the guy who rang me out for AC: Unity, Halo: MCC, and COD: AW that if they did the same deal next week, I'd come back for Dragon Age, Far Cry 4, and GTA V Xbox One. Looks like I have to settle for a free Dragon Age guide, and some red bull and a $10 gift card; unless somewhere else has a deal next week that's not been leaked.

I actually got $44.80 for sunset overdrive with the 50% vs $44 with just gcu, but yeah in every other case its always 80 cents less for games that had a $40 base value before the 50% deal started

This last time was a rare different that some games were 28 base instead of 27 but i wouldnt count on that again

Every time that I trade in games at Best Buy they keep saying that they don't give 10% extra to gamersclub unlocked members, eventhough their website clearly says so.  Has this happened to anyone else?  What should I do about this?

They do and I would tell then how stupid they are about their program. If you post on the Best Buy forums that you didn't get your bonus they can award you points for what you lost.

Okay, so pretty much if I have a game right now that trades for $40, just go ahead and trade it now? I have a hard time thinking Advanced Warfare would drop below $30 next week

Actually, that isn't the case. Almost all games break even or lose value. there is no favoritism to low value vs high value for the very few that get a gain.

However, all $5 games for Xbox 360 and PS3 stay the same and do experience a $2.50 bonus. It appears the $5 games for ps4 and Xbox one get the axe during the bonus promotion and can not be traded in.

Oh wow. I'm glad the 50% is happening again, I need BF money!

I would trade it in now. At $40 base and GCU bonus, you come out with $44 and 80 mybb points. Next week, COD is most likely going to be $27, meaning with the 50% and GCU bonus it will be $43.20. However, mybb points are only given out for the base x2, which would be 54.

Just to throw in my two cents: every single time that I have traded NOT during a 50% bonus, I have wound up losing a somewhat significant amount of money compared to the next bonus offer, even if the bonus was several weeks later. I will be waiting for the bonus.

Basic rule of thumb is BB will not give you more than $44 for a trade in unless you get lucky. So yeah, COD will definitely take a hit to bring the TiV to below $30. I'd say between $25-$27 for sure.

How much do TIV drop before a promo like this?

 

Specifically I have  :xb1: Shadow of Mordor which has a current tiv of $35.

SOM was $26 during last 50% bonus....i assume it will be a few bucks less than that.

 

newest games are about a push re: a better deal with the 50% tank/bonus dance.

cheap games area almost always better with the 50% bonus

 

SOM is right on the cusp.  given it's in a bunch of black friday ads, wouldn't be surprised to see it lower than $26 during 50% week
