Have you guys had any issues trading in multiple copies of the same game to best buy in one transaction?

Yes, I've never been able to pull that off and I don't know that other people have reported success.

I traded two doom XBox One yesterday at once. Don't do it that often and don't think I have done 3 at once.

I often trade 2 of the same sometimes for a total of 4 between xb1 and ps4. Ymmv though, they probably have it in their terms that they can deny you at their discretion.

nope, done it plenty of times.

 

If they ask I just tell him I'm trading in the extras for friends/cousins. They usually just nod there head and continue on.

Well shit, I've been shot down routinely trying to do multiples of the same game. Maybe I should start trying again seeing all these success stories.

worth a shot, but you may just have a bad store.  My target never allows me to do anything that most CAGs seem to be able to do at will. for example, they would only pricematch one of an item(it was target.com that i was PMing), and when i ordered a second one for instore pickup they gave me crap about it.

Reading this thread is like having cancer.  There are a few morons ruining it for everyone.

 

On Topic: Is the $125 console trade only through this week?

 

Edit: Speaking of morons I should have just read the OP.

Traded NMS and 4 copies of Doom this week, all using GS credit, and ended up with $140 in BB GC's. Not bad. Now to wait for the BF flips...

i seem to be doing fine. on two different visits I traded in 6 copies of Doom(3 on each platform). I don't even think they asked why I had so many.

It wasn't bad enough that Best Buy changed the trade in value on Doom, but I wasted at least an hour there last night. When I was trying to trade in my games the GCU wouldn't apply to my account, at all. The rep called multiple people in the store over to help and also called two people at a corporate number who both couldn't help nor did they know the benefits of GCU. One guy claimed it expired in June even though I just used it Tuesday and as I stated earlier (and showed her the activation email) it doesn't expire until April 2017. She then decided to try to just activate a new GCU on my account and give it to me for free. Waited 15 minutes and never got an email confirmation and it still wasn't applying the bonus. 

 

So finally after an hour with no resolution I said just manually ring up a gift card for the extra 10% trade in that wasn't registering and I'll contact customer service to try to get my bonus points since who knows if they'll be applied. I'm also now afraid I'll have to jump through hoops to get my account linked back up with GCU. 

 

Has anyone had this happen to them and have any recommendations how to handle this?

I had all sorts of trouble doing the trade-in the other day. I traded in NMS, but the GCU bonus wasn't showing up. The managaer told me that the trade-in account info and the GCU info were not linked. They wanted my phone number and license to do the trade, and my rewards card wasn't enough despite having all that info ... because BB didn't link them. I have no idea why that was, but the manager eventually managed to get me set up so that everything would just work.

By the way, the bonus percentages do not stack. They're applied to the base value, so instead of getting 160%* of 20, I got
$20 x 10% = 2
$20 x 50% = 10

Total trade-in was $32 instead of $33.

 

*EDIT: I was thinking initially it would be 20 x 1.1=22, then 22 x 1.5=33, which is actually 165% of the base price. My bad, but that's actually how I was expecting it worked.

Exactly,

 

 

50%  of $20 = $10

 

10% of $20 = $2

 

 

$20 x .060 = $12 Bonus

 

Total of $32

So you post a link of a bunch of people requesting refunds for something they just didn't like and then you call me an asshole.

It's still not acceptable to request a refund for a used game that you didn't do your research on and just didn't like.

Might be dumb question, but just in the off-chance, is the 50% bonus still going on today? Or am I too late?

I'm sorry. I was clearly confused in my explanation and usage of stacking in some fuzzy math. I was thinking that the bonuses would trigger one after the other.

I was initially thinking that I would get the 10% bonus bringing 20 to 22. Then, the 50% would be applied to the 22, bringing it to 33. That was what I meant by stacking, but I got screwed up in explaining it. My bad.
