50% bonus sounds good. Hope there is some good values.

Hopefully TIV for GTA V and Uncharted Collection don't drop much.

Finally, a trade-in bonus higher than 30%. Thanks, OP!

man, I think Best Buy is saving all the deals for Black Friday at this point. They've been very underwhelming for several weeks now

Are we sure it isn't this?

 

  • Free "Pre-Owned" copy of Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition with the purchase of a PS4  :razz: 

 

 

Seriously though, can't wait to see what the 50% bonus brings

Gears! And trade-in bonus. Wow. Is this the official best buy ad thread? Looks like it, huh.

Is this the same art book that was promised when you preordered on Halo day or whatever a while back? If so, does this likely mean that the store will just go ahead and give away my art book just because they aren't smart enough to set some aside for the people who preordered?

On a related note, why does Best Buy's TIV search suck now? I can't go past the first page when browsing TIVs from high-to-low, and it's been this way for weeks.

A 50% bonus is useless when all the old games have already tanked so much!

If we have GCU does the 50% trade in stack with the 10% we already get so 60% for GCU Members?

Perfect week for that trade bonus to start! I hope I can unload some games for some decent credit towards my purchases this week, with WWE 2K16, the Elite controller, and Halo 5 it will be an expensive day.

As long as the TIV doesn't dip from $27 to below $20, this bonus is good motivation to finish up Woolly World before the 31st. $32 plus the Yarn Yoshi amiibo it came with = a free-ish rental.

It will dip a bit, but usually the trade in bonuses (if you have GCU) make the value a few dollars higher.  Instead of $29.70, you might get $32 or something like that.

This is great! 50% TIB! I was going to order Halo 5 on Amazon since I couldn't find any good Gamestop to BB credit movers but could buy Amazon gift cards at Gamestop. Now I can just buy a game on Amazon, trade into BB and get Halo 5 for $50 (instead of $53) and the $10 rewards.

 

But now what to trade.

It's annoying, but you can just alter the URL to navigate.

Assuming your search string is initially "*", scan the URL to find this portion : ..page&st=*&cp=1&nrp=20&sp=buyprice..
the number per page follows the "nrp=", first i usually change this from 20 to 100.
then the page number follows the "cp=", so just change this value from 1 to 2 to go to the second page and so on.

For sure. I'm just thinking that if it dips from $27 to $20 I can still trade it for $32. If it stays higher than that, even better!

 

I need to get back to MGSV (love that game) but it seems ripe for a BF deal so I might be willing to trade and re-buy if the value is decent.

They have to keep the price up for unsuspecting parents this Holiday season.

Does Best Buy ban you if you trade in too many of the same game? I traded in 2-3 copies of Smash 3DS before and I have a few more.

:xb1: NBA 2K16 currently has a $35 TIV. Doubt it'll stay that high but worth keeping an eye on.

The GCU rules state you can't trade in more than 3 copies per game per platform in a rolling year or you'll risk getting banned.

It does, and it is actually 65%.  They give you 50% extra and then 10%.  So if it was originally $10, they would bump it to $15, as the 50% bonus, then give you $1.50 as the 10% bonus.  You also get double points for your trade in to use towards rewards certificates, but those are only based on the original value, not any of the bonuses.  So you would get $16.50 in gift cards for the trade in, and 20 rewards points rather than 33.

Can you price match a tradein value? I traded in NBA 2k16 when I got it for free for buying a xbox one, or did i just lose out on that $15?
