It does. Traded in at BB just now and got $27.20. 

Sweet, thanks! Also, sorry for the basic question, but if I don't trade it in beforehand, I can still go in same day tomorrow, trade it, get the giftcard, then buy the game right there?

yeah you can. assuming the value doesn't drop tomorrow. I have no clue when or how often they change their trade-in values. 

But if you pre-order today you'll also get a $10 reward certificate in about a month. I just traded in-store then came home and pre-ordered online for about $23 after tax, GCU, and trade-in.

the 10% bonus is with GCU, and the 50% bonus is a weekly promotion at BB (check their weekly ad).

It shows the 50% extra price online but not the 10% GCU bonus.

cool, I'll just check the TIV online before I go, and if it's lower tomorrow, I'll just go to Target and will only have missed out on ten bucks. I'd trade it today, but I'm at work and to go home later, and go back out 45 minutes to Best Buy would use up some of those savings on extra gas.

 

I'll keep the reward certs in mind for my next buy! I don't think I will preorder today just because I'd have to pay the whole balance upfront and I really want the trade-in giftcard to go directly towards the PS4 version rather than towards a future BB purchase...I've spent enough on this one game as it is, lol.

I never trade games in, but I decided to trade my PS3 copy to Best Buy.  They gave me $27.20 after the Gamer's Club stuff as a gift card.  Went home and pre-ordered a copy for PS4 with the $10 preorder deal (and 20% off Gamer's Club).  Not a bad deal since I would never have played the PS3 version again.

The thread started how great the target trade in deal and finishes by how best buy does it better than target.

It's true. If you don't have GCU then maybe Target is better but with GCU it's no contest.

My local Best Buy closes in 2 hours, I'm a My Best Buy member, and I'm trying to maximize how much I can save. What are the steps to maximize how much I can save?

 

Bring in the PS3 version to the store, get coupon, preorder online with the coupon and it automatically gets $10 off?

I got in on last weeks Target B2G1 free. Will they let me exchange one of those games for GTA V (PS4)? :bouncy:

I wonder if I can trade my PS3 copy in either Target or Best Buy and pre-order the PC version instead...

pre-order online or in-store and you get $10, but not instantly. it takes about a month for you to get a $10 rewards certificate.

but yeah trade-in, get gift card, and pre-order either online or in-store.

Those B2G1 games are only worth a prorated amount on return. Don't think an exchange is possible.

Nope. You can get lucky and maybe get an employee willing to change the price of the new game to $40 for you, though

Target trades are at mobile kiosks and they're hours suck so check ahead of time to make sure they are there.

Do they NEED to be there to do the transaction, or can a manager? Seems silly to schedule a sale around a time when people work there. It's like.. hey milk is $1.99 but only when we have 3 cash registers open or something

Hopefully everything goes smoothly when I get off work this afternoon.Really hope they don't sellout, because I ended up getting the last copy of Destiny in the store when that released.

Yes they need to be there because they are not a regular target employee and are the only ones authorized to use the mobile kiosk which is the only place trades can be done. Nobody's arguing that it's stupid. Take it from someone who was a leader in that company for 13 years if you try to make sense of it you'll just get a headache.

Read the last line of his post. Darby thinks it qualifies as 1st person!

just came back from exchanging them. Ended up with 2 copies of farcry 4 and gta5 for ps4. The rep was unable to exchange them all at once though. He did 3 transactions for each individual exchange. No manager required. The customer is always taken care of.
