I was vacationing in the middle of nowhere until yesterday and missed flip-a-geddon. Have some backlog games I know I'll never reach and would like to unload, but I need a filler or two to trigger the 60% bonus. Is there any break even stuff at Best Buy or Target that wouldn't have been picked clean last week? *sigh*

If there is its likely going to be previous gen stuff. (360/PS3 etc.)

If there happens to be any copies of Garden Warfare 2 left they still fetch $22.10 trade in credit with the max bonus plus PUR.

UFC 2 on Xbox one is $20 at GS and trades in for $20.40. Probably a few more like that due to the Game Days sale.

If anyone trades in retro games, be aware that Genesis games may not work for the 70% for whatever reason. Traded in 9 retro games, they all got the bonus except for the lone Genesis one.

Can they refuse a trade? Not recently, but about to months ago they wouldn't even let me trade in Spider-Man for ps1. I asked at 2 separate stores and they both said no. I think the trade value was like $1 or something, but I just wanted to get rid of the game.

Fine print says they can refuse any trade for any reason - that is odd, though. I've never had a trade/item rejected, whether it was $0.05 or $50.

I've only been denied if a disc was cracked which only happened once or twice.

It is one of those discs with the black back, and the fine scratches are pretty obvious, but they didn't even see those and just saw it was PS1 game and said no. Didn't feel like arguing, but for a freaking $1 or whatever the trade in value was, you would think they wouldn't care and would just take it. I guess it's less work saying no then accepting it and having to print a sticker for it, ship it back to the warehouse, etc.

Maybe your store wasn't taking retro games at that point?

I had a GS refuse to take a few different Xbox 360 games that were ~$1 each, "Because the store won't make money."

I found this out the hard way when I traded in 5 Genesis games along with the system and a couple of PS4 games. The PS4 games got the 30% boost and that was it.

Do reward certificates stack?



#824 GCU2015  

Posted 09 July 2017 - 12:57 AM

I know the reward certificate for pre-owned can be stacked by using one of each at the same time: $25, $15 and $10.  But I don't know about the reward certificate for new products, do they stack the same way such as a $50 and a $25 in one transaction?

Nvm, I just read the footnote that says "Two certificates of the same denomination can not be used in the same transaction, but you can use two different denominations."  So the reward certificate for new product can be stacked the same way as the pre-owned certificate.

I haven't tried it yet but it sounds like Yes to me.

Yes. But YMMV on how many the employee will let you use on one item. Most have let me use 3 or 4 as long as they are all different. But once or twice, I was told I needed to buy as many items as I was using certificates.

I'm a bit late to this but for the extra $20 trade credit for any phone, tablet, etc, it says coupon required at time of purchase. What's that mean? What coupon?

Has anyone ever been able to get the store to sell them a used game at the new price? I want to buy something and of course they have zero new copies.

Is there any good household solution other than Goo Gone to get the "new" seal sticker residue off of GS games?

Move the paper cover insert to a better/clean case and trade that crappy case in next time you trade?  I have done that a few times in the past.

Well, I pulled out my PS Vita, reset it to factory settings, plus found 3 memory cards and accessory cords so I can head off to GS this wknd to trade in the system/etc and get a little something for it all. This thing has been with me across 2500 miles and 6 states.  =;

Did you get a chance to trade yours?  I am thinking if I can make it tomorrow I will unload my Vita too.  I really don't use it.  Did you reset it before or during the trade?  I can't remember if you can remove this from your PSN account via the web page or not?

 

If I can make it tomorrow before they close I might.  If not hope for another $100 TIV later.  Charged it up this afternoon but was too busy to get out the door.

I had a store the other day convert a new copy to used. They left it sealed and all. I was pretty surprised about that O.o Then again it was the store that all of the trade in values were wrong and I got like $150 less than I should have. I guess it evened out.

I bought an EA Access sub about 6 months ago but they had to look it up in their system. The code prints out on the receipt just like when you buy DLC or a season pass. I paid with TIC. No questions asked.

ditto. I've never seen a card in the store but they can print a code on the receipt. Employees may not know they sell it so you might have to coach them through it.

Seriously people, goo gone for stickers and a dry erase marker for removing permanent marker. All you will ever need.

 

Spray goo gone on the sticker glue and let it sit about 5 minutes and it will wipe away.

 

Write over permanent market with a dry erase marker then wipe it away immediately.

 

I swear by it.

Thanks for this! I'll definitely try the dry erase marker!

I've been denied trading in only once because I "Forgot" to bring in the games I had in the "Back". I was with my cousin that time 2 Hispanics walking with a couple of games lol. She said "i feel uncomfortable taking in your trades" so we took our business elsewhere luckily tho this was out of town ha.

Has anyone been denied using trade credit for gift cards? I casually asked a worker if trade credit worked on amazon or ebay credit (I am certain it doesn't), but he said that credit no longer works for ANY gift cards. I am pretty sure he is wrong, but there weren't any cards I wanted atm so I just shrugged and left. Anyone bought southwest or stubhub with trade cred recently?

It works on many GCs; just not Visa/Amex, Amazon, Gas, eBay.

 

I'm almost certain it works on SW. Not sure about Stubhub
