Traded in 7 copies of Division 2 along with a copy of slime rancher XB (bought digital for $7.99) and 2 top switch games. Went to 4 stores, and all but 3 copies I traded towards a one of boost games. Ended up with Animal Crossing and Nioh 2 SE (all paid off) $10 down on Ghost Of Tshushima SE. Also used 24k in points and credit for a used copy of BOTW. I have $84 left on a trade card and got 6k points today. Gonna use the credit and my $5 cert to pay off Persona 5 on the 31st. Should get 2 $10 PUR rewards from AC and Persona too. 

 

 

I had Animal crossing paid of at Best Buy with a gift card so I got all that back after canceling and used it to order Rise of Skywalker and 1917 4k steelbooks.

Target came in clutch with the price match on division 2

They sent me an email yesterday saying they'd guarantee the trade value of both copies of The Division 2 for a total of $38.50 through March 9th LOL

I got this too.  Odds that they'll honor it?

I got my flippers wet on the Division 2 deal, pretty nice. Only one of my BBs had copies of PS4 and neither had XB1. Did a pick up order for 2 PS4 copies. Went to Target but they claimed none in stock even though they showed online for XB1. Anyway, took in both PS4 copies to my favorite GS location and they gave me no issues with the trade. I just explained that I had picked up a couple of copies at a good price since GS was offering so much credit. They said they would take them both as long as I opened them outside and did two separate transactions since they were only suppose to do one copy at a time. Probably helped that I was asking to preorder a couple of games too. I guess I didn't understand the reserve boost, I only got $19.25 credit to reserve Torchlight 2 and Destroy All Humans. Also picked up 4/$20 while I was there and she even hooked me up with a sealed converted copy of Monster Hunter. Also got an Origins steelbook gold edition in fantastic shape and a copy of South Park that looked newly opened from the drawers. Not as profitable as others but made a few bucks in credit and got some great stuff for the collection; even had a good time chatting game stuff with the associates.  

 

Appreciate the heads up on the deal and being part of group. I see how this can get addicting quick.

Super Mario Maker 2 value held at $35 base. I'll trade mine in and pick up new tomorrow.

I wouldn't return them just yet. At $5 it's still a good trade in value for upcoming (possible) promotions. For $5, doesn't hurt to keep them until before the return date ends.

 

The voice of reason here, if I was stuck with copies I'd wait a couple weeks at least as long as you're not hard up.  I think BB gives you 30 days to return and a lot can happen in that time.

 

My local reps are pretty laid back about the whole thing.  I may trade in Smash for something and pick up a copy of Mario Make 2 though.

FYI - Best Buy gives you 2 weeks to return unless you're super special, elite. https://www.bestbuy....t260800050014.c

Anyone know of any Stores in Wisconsin getting the axe? They are spread far apart now and it would make no sense driving around to check

My big issue is the trade in policy isn't universal

Some stores let you trade 4 of each in at once, and some are 1 of each per 24 hours

And there seems to be no clear cut answer beyond pure luck

Aww did gamestop get a little ouchie? Sorry you're mad at your  fellow human being instead of some faceless corporation you absolute mind slave. Why don't you go hang out outside a walmart and ask for peoples receipts you snitch.

You've been here 3-4 months, put a sock in it.

I suspect the POS allows you to trade in 10 copies of XB1 Division 2 if you wanted to but its very YMMV when it comes to what the employee will allow

Once the K word comes out you pretty much lose any credibility in an argument, no matter what side you were on..

It does, so it's pretty much 800 free points or so.

Just to update the missing rewards points, Just received an email, and I was told I do not receive points for trade-ins, nor do I receive points for items bought with trade credit. So since my last two purchases included a game trade in, and then a purchase with that credit, I will not be receiving any points. Does this sound correct to all of you? Is the literal only reason to have PRO now the monthly $5? I want to be mad but maybe I just wasn’t paying attention to changing policies.

 

 

No, it's a glitch that they can't be bothered to fix. I've said it here before, the system is programed to just not give you any points on a transaction with a trade in. If you want the points you have to do it in a separate transaction.

I traded in my copies of Div2 yesterday towards Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, paid for it completely with the trade credit + monthly cert, and just got the points for all of it, so it seems more like it's YMMV.

Not sure how it calculates but I did two transactions with my Division 2 trades and am showing two point transactions for yesterday. One was the trade, a 4/20, and reserve that netted a $16+ transaction I put on my CC (looks like 800 points). The 2nd was the trade and I applied it all to another preorder (looks like 400 points). Not sure how they calculate the points or what they are based on in those transactions?

They usually last through Monday. Division 2 was an exception for obvious reasons.

GS is now the proud owner of thousands+ copies of The Division 2, brand new condition too!.  The value will never go up, IMO .. only down.

 

It's dead.

That's what people said about PvZ2 and a week later it was still trading in for $28+. Hell, it currently trades in for $12+ years later.

Just to add to the information pool I also just got points from an online transaction about a week ago and an in store trade in I did yesterday, and all of the points for both came today. Seems like (hopefully) it’s a glitch and not a policy change.

Mario Maker and R6 Siege look like decent boomerangs tomorrow if trade values hold.

They won't hold.

 

I'll still pick up MM2 tomorrow though.  $40 is good.  Traded mine in last week for $45.50.  Other weeks for $42.00, $49.00 ...

 

Bought for $20 - $38 ... but, it's actually a VERY fun game, so I'll just spring for a brand new copy for $40.  And keep it (maybe).

My points came in also. /confirmed.

 

I had like 25k points this week, so I'm glad at least 18k showed up late afternoon today.  Maybe more tomorrow.
