They're technically not supposed to take them, but if you're friendly with the employees they may do it if you ask


They can take 3 cent games no problem and sell them immediately, with exception to trade hold. There are some games with a 2 cent value though that they have to defect and send to the warehouse and affects the stores bottom line. Most stores won't take these at all. 3 cent is YMMV but is good profit margins for the store.

Hmm now I'm confused...I thought I saw somewhere all the n/a games and games not in system get trashed even if they accept it for the tier boost.

There were some employees on reddit talking about it in July during the last tiered trade on whether to take them or not. My last post is a the key info from there.

Sidenote. Is it possible to use southwest gift cards for hotels?

According to Southwest

A Southwest gift card is not valid for the purchase of Southwest Airlines Vacation Packages, cargo, hotel, rental car, Southwest Airlines merchandise, Southwest Airlines group tickets, EarlyBird Check-In, oversized and excess baggage fees, upgraded boarding at the airport, Pet Fare, unaccompanied minor service charge, additional Southwest gift cards, or inflight purchases. Sales tax, security fees, and passenger facilities charges may be paid for with a Southwest gift card.

any reason you’re going after the white one other than it being rare? Having owned both a white and Black OG PS4, the white looks far inferior IMO.

But hey you do you. Some like white electronics.

He wants a playstation pro. With the bundle you get deluxe version of destiny($100) for 450. Black one costs $400 plus you would have to buy the $100 destiny deluxe. You save $50-$55(after tax) for buying the white bundle

I read that. I was just wondering if anyone found a way around that. I'm trying to find a way to pay for hotels with trade credit.

If you buy a PS4 Pro and Destiny 2 with Expansion pass its about $490, but the bundle pack saves you about ~$40

Anyone know of a good way to transfer some credit from Best Buy to GS right now? I tried to do a portion by buying an eBay gift card at BB and using that to buy the $100 GS card for $90 promo that eBay was doing. Despite the physical eBay card saying "valid on all purchases on eBay.com that accepts PayPal" it is not valid on gift cards. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. I don't want eBay credit... I still have some BB credit that I want to use on the Destiny PS4 though and mine is currently half paid off at GS.

I got hit with a $4 refurb fee from a junior detective for trading in RBI Baseball 17. I explained CORPORATE POLICY and he said it was store policy, and some fucking bullshit about 'rising costs of making a replacement case in the store'. I was going to ask for the number to the district manager, but I was late for my movie, but I'll raise hell in the survey shit they want me to so badly fill out.

How much credit are you trying to dump from bestbuy?

About $100.

This whole experience has soured me a bit and reminded me why I never trade stuff anymore. I traded in my PS4 the day before they put up the additional $50 deal (because the price hadn't changed in forever) and now this whole thing with the eBay junk. I just want to get out of it already and be done tomorrow.

I believe you can use that eBay credit to buy an item on eBay from Best Buy, return it in store, and get it on a BB gift card.

I feel you. One store in my area once tried that with me. I went to another store to do my trade but did do a negative survey against them because of it. I would always use that store to do my negative-COL stuff after that. That associate is no longer there and Saturday they took my Redbox games without an issue and the associate was super nice.

Ok now this would work out good if by a miracle trades dont dump tomorrow. Wolfenstein 2 pack at bestbuy is $23.99 after gcu. Buy one  ps4 .  Trade them at gamestop by them selves not as the 2 pack.(trades in for 13xx something a piece before the new trade promo) and trade in  the sony games are on sale at bestbuy Uncharted collection, last of us are $11.99 a piece and a few others in the sale(you will have to look). Trading in gamestop for $11.00 before the trade in bump. The current trade in offer at gamestop is trade in games towards something preowned  like a $1.99 ds game or something will give you 60% bump and you will keep the overage. If someone has easier trade ins go ahead chime in..

There were a ton of them over the weekend. I think Drive club VR, the Wolfenstein 2 pack (trading the games in separately with the case), and the exclusive PS4 games like Ratchet and Clank, The Last of Us, Uncharted collection, God of War 3 Remaster are all still valid today but 1) helps if you have GCU and 2) prices are probably done today and 3) trade values likely change tomorrow and 4) you need to do the 50% promo buying a cheap preowned game.

Just leave a negative survey and ask to be contacted. If they said the refurb was for no case then that is something I want fixed. Since they advertise that it doesn't matter if it has the case. Most DMs will take care of you they are really trying hard to have no negative surveys. The more prestige stores in their district the better they look.
