Any way to view top trade ins? Looks like URL now forces you to look up games individually

I've been using the same link for awhile now, sometimes it doesn't work but refreshing the page 2-3 times the list ends up showing up.

Is the Turtle Beach XO One worth the 60 bucks? My cousin needs a decent headset. I know the Polk's are awesome for 15 bucks (and I have a set) but he's in Europe and I can't wait the 2-3 weeks for it and the replacement mic to get here.

I got the XO Ones for $35 and at that price I would say they are definitely worth it. Now that I own them, $60 seems pretty high. They don't feel very robust. The plastic bridge that goes over your head feels kind of flimsy.

More than 50% of the consoles at stores will be available for walk ins due to them only taking preorders for one day.

 

Does anyone know if BB will be bringing back the $10 pre-order cert? 

It tends to be more of a second half of the year promotion with most games being added after E3 announcements.

Forget the 30% trade in bonus. Had the best luck ever yesterday "trading in" for honor gold edition disc.

The dude working there hooked me up by giving me a full refund of $99.99 even tho i bought the game at target for $60.

I was offered only $3 since the PS4 For Honor isn't in the system,  Xbone is though.

According to a Gaming Rep 

 

90 Nonpreordered Switches for SALE at release at my best buy in NorCal.

 

Nintendo sent a memo about making sure people get Switches on Day 1.

 

They apparently shipped preorders by small shipments over time and sent them 90 specifically for release.

 

Also my Best Buy got 15 LOZ: BOTW No statue Special Editions.

that doesn't make sense if they only shipped 2 million units worldwide.

Take it with a grain of salt.
I don't really believe 90 units either, but like other post on this thread just expect extras at Best Buy.

My store is going to have around 90 extra units as well. There's going to be a lot extra because they only took preorders for one day. Pretty sure the US has more allocated units than Japan or Europe.

It does.

managers said they would figure out how many systems get preorders at 8pm. don't know if its bullshit or not. they wouldn't admit inventory but that preorders would get first dibs.

I suppose I'll ask this here, and hope for some help. So, I bought Zelda,1-2 Switch and Joy Con Charging Grip in one order during a VISA Checkout promotion. I am getting the grip in the mail, and the two games are waiting for store pickup. However, I plan to return 1-2 Switch, and maybe the grip. I know I want to get Bomberman instead, and maybe a Pro Controller if they have any. My question is: would doing a straight return of the two items result in less money back than I actually paid? And would it be possible to do a straight exchange of 1-2 Switch for Bomberman without paying anything extra, since they are both $49.99 MSRP (ie. Would I keep the GCU+VISA discount)? If anyone has any experience in doing this, any info is greatly appreciated!

You will get what you paid, the discount is sometimes distributed across the items on the receipt.  If at any time the amount drops below $100, I think the visa discount will drop off as well.  Exchanges are (what you paid) minus the new item price.  Dont look at MSRP, look at what you paid on the receipt.

 

It would look something like

1.6 CF OVER-THE-RANGE MICROWAVE
179.99 REG PRICE
10.00 SALE DISCOUNT
30.00 DISCOUNT
Sales Tax 9.80
----------
SUBTOTAL 139.99
Sales Tax 9.80
==========
TOTAL 149.79

 

So if i exchange it for another microwave that is also MSRP 179.99, I would have to pay the difference in what I paid minus the the price of the new item

 

  179.99 - new microwave

 -149.79 - what i paid BB

 

I have to pay $30.20 plus tax on the 179.99

The Switch is listed as "On display" at 1 of 5 Best Buys nears me.

Those stores probably have a kiosk where you can try the Switch.

Thank you, when I was searching for stock.. that was what came up instead.

It didn't give me any stock, just "On display" so, while I assumed it was a test system, I was also unsure and wanted to double check.
