I thought the PUR discount for used games was 20%. Why does it say on the site that the used PUR price for DOOM is $23.84 (only 10% off)?

 

EDIT: Nevermind. I'm an idiot. It's been a looong time since I've used my PUR account to buy a used game.

 

I was thinking of buying 2 used copies of DOOM with PUR and the retailmenot coupon to get those copies down to $38 ($48 - $9.50), then trading one of those copies to BB for $27.50 ($25 + $2.50) to end up with a copy of DOOM for effectively $11. Does that sound right? After my idiotic question above I feel like I need to check.

Why am I considering rebuying Borderlands: THC for $15 and returning the copy I just bought from BBY for $17? Am I really that cheap?  I guess if I am going there to buy something else...

If you're using GS credit then it's not bad but if you're paying cash then you turning cash into credit.

Yep, I'd be using GS credit. Now to hope that the one store near me with "low stock" have 2 used copies of the game. Otherwise, I'll wait for a better price.

Maybe I missed it in an earlier post, but the 20% bump for a collectible was extended to Wednesday. Bought a clearanced Starlord Dorbz for $0.97 to get the bump

 

Also, not that it's earth shattering or anything, but :360: Thief showed on the pinpad as being part of the 4 for $40 already yesterday. Only bought it because it was the steelbook. The associate said he hadn't seen a list yet but was supposed to start today.

 

Edit: Also just noticed the following rang up as 4$40 on my trade-ins:

:ps3: Dragon Ball Z Raging Blast

:360: LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

Does GS typically honor the retail me not coupons?  Or is it very much YMMV?

 

I am thinking of doing exactly what you propose.  I have a GS and BB in the same mall near my job.

Thanks again! There is a Cyber Monday sale going on at BB that has some good flips or GC -> Cash conversion.

Thanks for the update blackbeard!  Appreciate your tremendous work on this info.  Are you still having to manually do calculations to get the GS to BB movers onto the sheet?  There are a couple of GS to BB credit flips for Battleborn and Doom using the PUR and Retailmenot bonuses and didn't know if that was something that the sheet was already calculating somewhere.  Thanks again!

Working on BB, takes a while to pull the data and I have to manually edit the crap out of it.

Just got back from GS. I bought two used copies of Uncharted 4 for $25.55 each (tax free credit) after retailmenot coupon and PUR Pro. I kept a copy for myself and boomeranged a copy for cash. I bought my copies from a GS that had multiple copies and traded my other copy to a GS that only had one copy (just helping the cause).
