Meijer is running another 2x Trade-in Value Promo for Video Games.  Looks like this has been running since yesterday.  Found the ad on their website, link below.

I didn't even know meijer took in trades. Is the only way to find values to actually take it in to the store?

Instore or match on NextWorth.com.  Typically they are the same because NextWorth runs the Trade-in Program for them, like they do Target.

 

Note that you CANNOT quote on NextWorth and bring into Meijer to honor the quote, people have tried and it will not work, just a FYI.

I'll confirm that the Meijer values were the same as Nextworth for me last time they ran the promo. I'm not sure how often Nextworth changes values, but I checked about 4 hours before I went to Meijer and they held. :)

 

Just make sure the Clerk enters the condition properly. Last time for me, the clerk thought that "Artwork Included" meant the instruction slip / booklet. Thankfully I caught it, since most games don't come with those anymore.

REMINDER!!!

 

In order to get double that value for your video games, make sure that the first thing the Meijer employee does is turn the promo on.  There was a lot of issues with this last time, so make sure they click the little grey box at the top-left hand side of the trade-in screen.  If this box is not clicked first, most of the time there are issues with activating the promo and receiving double the value further on down the trade.

Holy shit.. if it does take nextworth values.. then games like Battlefront are $29.75.. double that makes nearly $60.

 

With BB B2G1 free.. you can make a shitload

 

Prices using nextworth (unsure if they are the same as meijer so YMVV)

 

Black Ops 3 - $60 after double

Battlefront - $59.50 after double

Fallout 4  - $60 after double

Welp, doing this today and going to get my kids the lego's they want for christmas for a fraction of the actual cost.

 

Using BB B2G1, it comes to $96 with GCU, trade in 3 BLOPSIII for $180 = $84 in profit.

 

holy.

 

shit.

Fine print says only two redemption per customer.. there's the catch

 

Wonder if you can bypass because they probably don't get trade in's often.. and the reps will/won't care.

Also wonder if it's like targets.. where you can do 3 and it goes by your ID, so thus you aren't allowed to do more 

 

Meijer will buy your used video game and give you double the trade-in value to be used on your next purchase at Meijer. Limit two redemptions per customer. Trade-in value and additional bonus provided via Meijer Gift Card. Some restrictions and exclusions apply. See terms and conditions at time of trade-in or by visitingmeijer.com/tradein. Games from PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, XBOX ONE, XBOX 360, WII U and WII are eligible for trade. To be eligible for bonus, games must be in the trade-in catalog, discs must not have any scratches and original artwork and case must be present. Minimum of $5 in total trade required for redemption. Offer good 6am Sun., December 6 thru Sat., December 12, 2015.

Does Meijer give cash or a store gift card?  If I'm to go by Nextworth, I can get more than $40 for Tearaway Unfolded.  That would surely beat the $18.xx that Amazon is offering.

Thanks, I wasn't planning on picking up Battlefront but since I can get it for free +$20 after BB's B2G1 and flipping to Meijer I might as well.

Varies from store to store. Game has to be in their system to trade in. Comes on a gift card. Might be able to use the credit to flip to BB. Customer service wasn't sure if it could be use to purchase non meijer gift cards.

So $60 per game confirmed? Thinking about going and trying 3 games tomorrow.. to see if they will allow more than 2, even if it's per transaction

Got $71 for Black Ops 3 and Lego Batman 3--$60+$11. Don't expect a quick transaction since they don't do trade ins much. They had to consult their manual and call for help figuring out the process, but the values were as stated on Nextworth x 2.

well this is what i found on the meijer site "Meijer Gift and Food Cards may not be used to purchase other gift cards, including those sold at a Meijer store or on-line at www.meijer.com. Meijer Gift and Food Cards are not for resale, are not redeemable for cash or monetary credit and cannot be returned for a cash or credit refund." but i am 100% ive done it once over a year ago at self checkout maybe they recently changed it

Does meijer sell wii u games? If so I might have to trade some games in and pick up Some wii u games. I missed out on the last target double trade in values? Also where does the trade in take place? Back in the electronics or with a phone rep like target that has different hours?

#28 srac84  

Posted 07 December 2015 - 05:51 PM

yes wii u and 3ds games

So they would only allow 2?
Did they take your I'd info in? How do they track the limit? I have 4 meijers around me.. So just wondering
