I’m 0-2 on Redbox game purchases. Have they gotten better on the paper scam thing?

It can vary. Sometimes it's nice paper and you can tell they took time cutting it, but other times its obvious they half-assed it.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Good luck on the 360 versions of games.  I remember having to buy 5 copies of WWE 2k17 before finding one that didnt look like someone took a knife to it.

People flipping them on eBay. Been seeing a bunch of Redbox copies of Dark Souls III.

Apparently the new thing now which surprised me, people are just taking the stickers off the game and putting them back on the case around the circle.  I am surprised the machine takes it back but i found two copies like that today.

Bought 8 games today and thankfully didn't have any problems. It's ridiculous that the machine accepts copies like that back.

Awesome!  Got WWE2K17 finally with this deal.  Disc worked great for me and installed without problem, thanks for the heads up!

Glad someone was willing to actually do the work unlike the lazy OP.

Picked up a couple games to flip to Gamestop since I'm planning on getting the Fractured but Whole there and trading at GS is painless compared to BB in my experience. Ever since I moved back to Indiana from Atlanta, I don't think I've gotten a single paper disc from these machines.

sounds like it's with as I did a few of each this week:  WWE is about 12.50 and NBA is about 15.xx.  W/o GCU, WWE is about 11.xx, NBA is about 13.xx IIRC

I might have to jump on this hustle.

What do you guys put the discs in? Do you remove the Redbox sticker? Please PM if I'm clogging up the Topic. I really want to get Evil Within 2 tomorrow.

use a hairdryer; it removes the stickers effortlessly!

I traded 3 NBA and 3 Madden to get about $83. No GCU and no problems at Best Buy. Put discs in generic jewel case, left sticker on disc. Employee only mentioned about having a lot of copies, but no issue with trade in. I could have gotten about $90 with PRO at GameStop, but doubtful they would take multiple copies at once and I didn't feel like running around to multiple locations.

I brought them in w/o cases, stickers on.  No issues or questions asked at my main BB.

Best Buy's website is showing low trade-in values on these games. For example, WWE 2K17 PS4's trade-in value is only $6.07. Is the website lying or did BB take action in response to all the trade-ins?

AFAIK the PS4 value was always lower, it's the 360 version that trades for $11. I traded it today for that much.

Super easy!

Does Best Buy take games without cases? I never tried at the store near me. Also can you trade more than on of the same copy?

Just notice this....I may try but idk. I just need enough to pay off my wolfenstein 2 CE.

Spent $43.12 at local Redbox locations today... 2 Madden's, 3 WWE, & 3 NBA 2Ks. Went to BB, kept the games right inside the Redbox cases, stickers on them as well, and got a gift card in the amount of $112 and some change... Got that sweet 10% bonus from GCU. Felt like a scam-artist standing at the service desk counter, but the driving around and waiting was definitely worth it. Thanks OP.
