There are always flips ;)

True that, I just don't have the time to devote to flipping anymore haha.  The hayday of that for me was blockbuster's awesome sales.  What was it 4 or 5 for $20 or something like that?

Hmm... Looks like Ferrari racer is going to have to start signing his gifs.

 

 

No, its plagiarism.

 

 

You don't post Ferraris work. Especially without credit. You parasite.

DISCLAIMER I DIDNT THIS IMAGE

Everyone chill.

 

I never claimed to have created it, and I took it from one of last week's ad threads so it's not like I'm flying under the radar.

 

Plus I hotlinked the original imgur upload, I didn't take download it and post it to a new URL.

I'm new at this best buy trade in thing, does the site give you values or do I have to go in? Mortal Kombat XL isn't listed on the site and it says Ass Creed Syndicate is only $7, which is hilariously low. I'm gonna assume it's not worth it for any game?

If it's not listed you would recieve .25, it's considered generic. AC Syndicate can be had now for 14.99-19.99 due to various sales, explaining the lower trade in value.

Anyone thing the $27 will hold for GTA V?  Is there a period, like Sunday morning, that trade in values are still old but the 50% promo still works?  I'd part with GTA V for $40.50.

None in the ad.

 

Anything that comes out Tuesday will be available for purchase at the midnight launch.

Yeah they got back to me later on in the day and said that they just confirmed by corporate or whatever that the system will be available then.

mortal kombat xl would trade in under just regular mortal kombat for $10. best buy doesnt give different values for regular/deluxe/gameoftheyear versions.

Yup but Gamestop gives a specific TIV for MK XL.

Not likely because it's also on sale next week for $27 after GCU

and best buy has been on the ball with updating values for bonuses, usually updating the values on saturday before the ad starts.

The console trade in returns! I traded myX1 in a few weeks ago with plans to upgrade to X1S. I've been jonesing for it but have remained patient as I'm only buying the 500gb model for $299 bc I've already got a 4tb netbook.

That's new. They didn't require a controller the last time.

sucks you gotta include a controller now but getting the halo controller for ten bucks (maybe twenty) when you buy the xbox S halo bundle is pretty sweet. If they take my busted master chief controller I'm a prob grab it. If not to GS is goes :D

Wish they gave something for the Kinect camera since I have an extra one of those. I do have two 500gb models but I really don't have a controller I'm willing to part with since mine are all now special edition models. Should have did the deal a couple of weeks ago.

That does suck. I was about to do this. I still might depending on how activating my Note 7 later today goes.

Keeping my fingers crossed for GTAV and Overwatch to hold their values.

I'm really hoping the values on my games hold.  I'm not going to say the names in case Best Buy has spies here.

I traded in my oldest X1 for $125 deal about 10 days ago. I didn't know you could do it without the controller 😡, I included mine & still got only the $125 credit...$208 after adding a few older games.

Waiting for Madden bundle on Tuesday

I so hope this is true because I was gonna have to use GS for their $100 cash deal because Best Buy is only giving like $60 right now.

3-6 AM ET is what I've seen when I've woken up randomly at night.

Anyone else get emails saying "your [insert amount] reward certificate is here" ? I got one for $5 and one for $100, but they don't seem to work online, they look official but I'm thinking the $100 one must be fake or something, regardless neither one of them work online, I'm just wondering if it's worth my time to print them out and bring them to a store?
