How long does it typically take for new releases to get added to the trade listing? I've got Dead Rising 4 locked in at Amazon for $36, hoping I might get more than that with the 50% bonus.

Edit: should also be able to get $16 back if bought as part of the buy 2 get 1 ($48 with GCU vs $32 this sale)?

I'm guessing the trade in deal is going to be a difficult journey that week.  I have a good feeling Christmas gift returns will cause a huge line at customer service.  Any advice when is the best time during the day is to trade-in?  Right at opening is a sure bet, but I'm not sure about mid-day.

Hmm, I wonder if the Deluxe Edition of FFXV will also be on sale, and whether Best Buy's extended holiday return policy applies to post-purchase price adjustments...

50% bonus time! Nice! Picked up a few games with all these recent sales just for trading, time to rebuild that store credit...

Any chance you could buy the Minecraft Xbox One S bundle today and get the free controller with this deal without the price of the consult being adjusted up?

Looks like Sony extended the $249.99 discount on the PS4 Uncharted 4 bundle till 12/31/2016.

 

I would imagine Best Buy will adjust their price?

I would not expect much on a trade in value for DR4, they will tank the trade value with it being on sale.

Probably best to do it during the week days in the early morning or in the evening a hour or so before they close.

I'm just going to hope for some chances to flip GameStop credit to Best Buy is all. Nothing really for me to trade in. I should have ​Shadow of Mordor​ beaten by then, but I don't even see the GotY version in their list of games you can trade, and the base game is at $0.25.

I've already adjusted many items I've bought as far back as Nov 2.

Always call in the early AM and you will likely get a Filipino CSR. They are more likely to give you everything you want without even knowing the system. Just tell them what you expect to get back and they may even give you more back as a courtesy(or they just do the math wrong).

I don't know. I'll ask my Filipino wife and her Filipino family what they think. And when my kids grow up, I'll ask my half Filipino kids.

Or I can also ask my Trinidadian parents and family. Or ask my Imam what will Prophet Muhummad p.b.u.h. Think of my business logic and then report back to you.

Maybe Americans are just a bit more cynical and second guess everything a customer requests; delaying the issue for longer than necessary.

Who knows...

Edit: my Father-in-law told me to post this:
"Putang Ee Na Mo, Gagaka Tallaga"

I hope I wrote it correctly. Wouldn't want to offend anyone.

You're right in that it's wrong to assume that your background is more diverse than strangers may think online but no one could have known that.

I think you meant this https://www.urbandic...e&defid=4050458

Also, some people see racism as soon as race is mentioned. It is usually best to ignore their accusations as I feel it reflects more on themselves in how they interpreted what you wrote. But calling their mother whores might be a little over the top.

I bought ff15 when Best Buy had buy 2 get 1. Paid for watch dogs 2 & dead rising 4. I'm elite + so I should be able to price match dead rising 4 39.99(32gcu). Also might have to wait until December 26 so I can also price match watch dogs 2 39.99 from target.(I missed out on the pm when it was dotd at Best Buy $32
I'm only allowed one price match hopefully the target one works

so saying something racist isnt racist if its against your own race or one you married into? add CAG race relations to CAG math.

And you wonder why trump won? Everyone's so sensitive to every damn thing.

It's best to deal with a foreign csr because they aren't arrogant and rude like American csr. Is that more clear and less racist for you?

And at least I can do CAG math...because I'm Indian...get it?😉

You think that's sensitive? That's nothing. My local university offered counseling to students who may have been offended by Halloween costumes.

Sorry, that's totally off topic. lol.

Makes the whole buy 2 get 1 seem pretty worthless. 3 x $32 GCU games equals that. I know I got DR4, FFXV, & WD2. The only one I've opened and played so far is DR4. I have no sense of urgency to open and play the other two so I may go buy a copy of DR4 for $32 and return the $96+ tax purchase.

I'm thinking the logic is you'll get different reps at different times of day due to time zones.
