So much drama in the C-A-G... (Snoop Dogg voice)
I just wrote this long ass post while the other thread got nuked lol..
Regardless I turned a $130 trade card into $1085 across 9 stores.. Going to go back for more tomorrow with a better plan, more flips and more PUR Pro accounts (no ID state ftw) but if the values get nuked I'm more than content.
I always feel like I'm being grilled by the FBI when the guy processing my trades tries to make small talk about the games I'm trading and I have to keep up the facade like I'm just a regular customer haha. So many times today I got "What did you think of game X? / How do you like system Y? Are you going to get Z?" I had absolutely no idea what these guys were talking about half the time but I tried to play it off and be as generic as possible lol. Also found it kind of annoying that a lot of the employees were trying so hard to sell me a bunch of useless shit that I had no interest in at all, but I didn't run into any jr detectives so I suppose it's a small price to pay.
Also, don't know if this was mentioned in the FAQ or not, but if you're doing GS to GS trades, be mindful that your trade balance doesn't really reflect the $2000 rolling limit. When I updated my spreadsheet when I got home I was surprised to find I traded in more than 2k worth of stuff even with 1100 in profit, just because I had to keep rolling those trades into other purchases. I thought the 2k limit would have just been 2k on across the trade cards, would have learned that lesson the hard way if I didn't have a second account going. It's my first time doing more than a few hundred bucks so if you're diving in like me be sure to keep track of that.
Thanks again to Blackbeard and all of the helpful contributions to the thread, hopefully there will be some more opportunities tomorrow and through out the weekend. Cheers!
