Thanks to everyone who posted the details on how to activate the promotion. I went back to the original store today and was lucky enough to have a couple of open-minded employees try it out. It worked, much to their astonishment, and I left with $100 in credit. They didn't have Best Buy gc's for whatever reason so I converted my Meijer credit to Best Buy oops Target gc.

I had a decent backup plan, but glad I didn't need to use it.

Went back today to the same store after trading in 5 games on my first trade in the other day. I brought 4 games and employee said 2 games per transaction but we could do 2 transactions. He tried adding them all on one but it wouldn't take. So he did the first 2, gave me the gift card then did the second 2. No problems at all. No flag. That's 3 separate trade ins I've done. Gonna go back for probably 2 more on sat.

Where do you trade in at? Customer service or electronics?

Wonder if it's just 2 trade in limit in like a 24 hour (or some short) period. I should probably do another set before this ends but don't know if I will take the time/spend the money to chance getting rejected.

by chance has anyone traded in rock band from the band in a bundle set? not sure if they won't take it since it says not for resale, I guess I could do it without the artwork but sure it'll be less. and then for xbone it shows it with the legacy adapter. 

 

If anything might just take them to disc replay and see how much they say. Don't wanna trade it into amazon for same reasons as above.

If it is not available on NextWorth.com, it won't be available at Meijer.  You could always check there.

NIce. I might try trading in tomb raider and rebuying it if that's the case. They give $50 for it and with the sale and santa bucks can get it back for $35.

The Meijer in Mt. Pleasant, MI is having some serious issues right now. Promo wasn't showing up anywhere, despite me telling them exactly where it should be in their system.

 

They said they didn't have issues earlier in the week but that they're checking with Nextworth to see if it's on their end. Here's to hoping it's resolved by tomorrow since I opened the games there and can't return them to Best Buy now.

no it's there but the one in the band in the box bundle doesn't have a upc and says not for resale.

ive been having this problem at the meijer near me in mi from day 1 ... "nothing is coming up under promotions" the idiot person there insists that they are already doubled LOL..normally i wouldnt call anyone an idiot but the way she was acting really pissed me off..i went to another 1...and the person doing the trade ins was on the phone with nextworth support cuz they didnt know how to do it ...and at first it wasnt popping up then they claim it magically appeared either way it worked in the end but MAN did it take a while!!

The system is doing a two-game limit now. Trying to do three still as two transactions. Seems okay so far. Or maybe not. Having trouble with the second one. The wife is shopping the rest of the store, so I may need her this time. And done. Took forever, but we used the wife's ID, though he said that wasn't it.

Worked fine for me about an hour ago.

 

My wife and I went in and they let us do 2 sets of 2 games each. Got $275 or so.

 

Rise of the Tomb Raider - $50

AC Syndicate - $50

GTA5 - $50

Until Dawn - $50

Gears Ultimate (Paid $5 on black friday and got a $10 gift card lol) - $32

Persona 4 Arena Ultimate (bought last week on amazon for $12 with $10 off for some reason) - $20

Dragon Age Inquisition PS4 - $22

 

I bought a $100 bb gift card no problem, and the only trade problem was I had the crew for PS4 and they didn't have it in the system for some reason.

 

These were all games I owned and bought for cheaper or at launch, i got a $100 BB gift card to rebuy a few of them with B2G1 on best buy, some PSN credit, and spent the rest on groceries. Stocked up on meat to put in the freezer.

 

Also found Olimar Amiibo on clearance for $9.

 

There are some really good values out there for games that arent even part of the Best Buy B2G1. a lot of games that are $20-30 retail get $25 or so.

Just traded in Rock Band 4 (PS4) That came with the guitar bundle. $50 going into the DLC fund!

Just traded in Fallout 4, Fifa 16, Forza 6, and Star Wars Battlefront all for xbox one.  I went to the Meijer in Ann Arbor, Mi on the corner of Jackson and Zeeb roads.  I got there and the girl working in electronics did not know how to do trade in's so she called the manager.  They let me do 2 trades of two games for four games total.  At first the prices they pulled up were not the double prices for the promotion, I mentioned the box to click at the top of the screen for the promotion.  They tried it again and it worked.  The whole process probably took about 20-25 min.

Prices I got were:

Fallout 4: $50

Star Wars Battlefront: $50

Fifa 16: $48.10

Forza 6:  $48.10

 

Total: $196.2 in Meijer Gift Cards

 

I used the meijer gift cards to purchase 2 $100 Mastercard gift cards (which have a $5.95 activation fee each) and used the mperks coupon to save $15 on the purchase of two mastercard gift cards which covered the cost of the activation fees plus $3.10

Biggest issue I'm having when trading in is to get the employee to agree that "artwork" means coverart and not manuals/slips. Some games don't even come with manuals/slips anymore, and some only comes with DLC codes which of course I will take out and sell.

Ditto! Had to keep Assassin's Creed because she thought manual meant cover art... :/

nice I might try tomorrow thanks!

 

I got a feeling I'm flagged but only did it twice so maybe not. Would prefer to keep it sealed but I doubt I'm a get too much more sealed on ebay then compared to used on ebay or trading it in elsewhere like disc replay. So I think it's worth a gamble at getting a quick 100.

I wanna bleed em dry, and am super close to one of their new WI locations, but, uh...I probably shouldn't.

Still, in for 2.

That's because Berwyn is a Meijer "Marketplace" location. Meaning they usually only sell essentials, like groceries and what not. I got it to work at the Bolingbrook location on Weber and Boughton.

Melrose said they dont do trade ins, not too sure the trek out to Bolingbrook is worth it.

Evergreen may do it, and it's about 10-15 miles from North Riverside.

The Meijer in Melrose Park told me to go to Rolling Meadows. They limited me to only two games and one transaction at the Meijer.
