Just got back from Meijer. The associate back at the electronics counter knew about the promo, looked over my games, then went behind the counter to enter them into the system.

Results:
Bloodborne - $37
Tearaway Unlimited - $41
Littlebig Planet 3 - $23

Talos Principle - $15 (the double TIV didn't ring up so I didn't trade it in)
Assassin's Creed Unity - $0 (wasn't in the system to trade in)

I'll try my luck with Talos and AC at Target on Friday.

So the double credit worked on more than 2 games and it didn't work on all of the games. Oh boy. I'm heading back.

Is your Unity Xbox or PS4?

All games are PS4.

That's odd because I turned in that same game today at Meijer for $12 (doubled from $6).

what are the base values of your games. It looks like if they are less than $5, they wont double

Someone needs to take note of the trade in process so we can tell these people what to do.

It doesn't work in WI. The promotion is on the client but when they turn it on and try a game it doesn't work. It gives an error message and the base value. He did call and they submitted a ticket, so I'll find out more by tomorrow or Thursday.

Try what? I'm not sure what we're worried about here. I have Target and Meijer, but the TiVs aren't worth the effort with Best Buy's deal going, so I haven't considered it since they dropped the Forza base from $20 to $22.50.

You're not looking hard enough. Also I'm in the store now and it's like Wal-Mart, no one knows how to do Jack shit.

Oh, I'm honestly not. I assumed it would be the standard 1 transaction and 3 games at Target, and it's not quite worth my time. I've gotta do the whole Xbox One trade thing this week, and I was more thinking on that (plus, I have a paper due Friday). If it's limited at Target, it's not really worth it. If it's unlimited at Meijer, well...I'm not sure how much I trust going to Meijer, haha. I had to explain how to do trades to Wal-Mart employees once, and I don't look forward to spending my evening doing volunteer work for Meijer because its employees don't receive training.

 

But if you get it done, get it done. Good luck, and my condolences on dealing with retail employees who aren't given the knowledge and tools to make life easier for everyone.

They couldn't find the promo. Under promotions, there was nothing. Nothing was found. Anyone at what point is the promo applied.

It's in the gray box above the bar. It shows the 2X TIV promo and if they turn it on, it doesn't add the amount.

I was talking with the GM contact and he looked at the guide and saw how a promotion should apply and saw it doesn't work. He called the 3rd party company that runs Meijer technical problems and they are looking into it. He will call me back tomorrow or Thursday, but before he does he's going to try it himself. We'll see if this gets fixed.

Yes, but it's there for the entire transaction, it's above the navigation bar and says current promotions, similar to Target.

I went yesterday after work to try wooly world. Associate checked the 2x promo and saw the game but when he clicked it, it just reloaded the game page. He could click any other game and it would come to the 3 question screen but wooly world just reloaded the page. 2 associates, 1 manager and several calls to tech support and I walked out with my game and the mangers assurance that this should be fixed in a few weeks....

The promo ends Saturday, dude!?!

Trading at meijer makes me miss trading at walmart.

This worked for me when I did my trade the other day.  Make sure the associate has the box clicked before he clicks on anything else.  I had this similar issue when they try to click it after he clicked something else and I had him restart the process and click it first.  Now my first rodeo trading in at Meijer, so I knew what to tell him, but it sounds like other stores do not know what to do, so just tell them to click the promo before anything else.

For the Meijer Promo, is it available at every Meijer? I can't find any mention of it in any of the ads for my local Meijer :( I checked the weekly ad and the toys / electronic ad.

 

Edit: Nevermind, it was in the Winter themed Ad. D'oh!

Yeah the often run a separate grocery and "general merchandise" ad. I also flipped through the entire grocery ad before finding the other one.

Question: Some of the games I want to trade in do not come up on Target's site. Does that mean they won't take them?

Did my trade-in at Meijer tonight and the values matched what Nextworth quoted me :) The associate did have to hit the promotion button first, as scanning the games and then trying to apply the promotion didn't work.
