Is there an updated list of participating stores? Also, do they offer cash?

I hope you didn't trade this in - I'd gladly give you more than that for it.


I did. Oh well. :(

Has anyone actually purchased used games at Best Buy? Besides the rare find of older games, I have never purchased used games there.

OP updated.

I have purchased a few things there, but mostly older, rare, or really cheap stuff.

I always make a point to open it up in store to check out what the disk looks like before heading home. Since they'll take stuff in almost any condition, some of the disks I've gotten look horrible. I've been told there is a 14-day return window for the used games.

thanks damanthia for updating the OP. I'm looking for some hidden gems at GR that'll be worth some good credit at Best Buy. Will post here when it happens.

I was at Best Buy yesterday and noticed that they had a sign up saying that you get an extra $5 per xbox360 game you trade in on top of the trade value. Just FYI guys and gals.

I've started to add the OP to the CAGwiki... but it will take a while :shock:

Damanthia, if you'd like to continue to maintain this list, ask Cheapy to set up you with an account.

$20 each for Call of Duty 2, Quake 4 and Perfect Dark Zero. Sucks compared to Gamerush and the extra $5 bonus is over.

*sigh*

guess best buy got wise and realized that the games they gave good values for aren't worth the credit they gave... like 30 bucks for robocop for the xbox :-o

Have faith! The fact that I got $16.50 for MS4+5 tells me that they're still using the old pricing scheme, which means there are still games out there that trade for $30... we've just got to put out some effort to actually find them :) Admittedly, this thread has been pretty lax in recent months in reporting trade-in values, something I hope we'll change.

I have no doubt that BB has plenty of hidden gems when it comes to trade in value, but the fact is everytime I go to BB to trade in games it becomes an ordeal.

It takes me like an hour to trade in 5 games, because they always give me the run around when they dont know how to trade in games, or they have to find the ONE person in the whole store that knows how to trade in games, and when that one person actually comes to do the trades, you find out that you're better off getting on that computer and doing the trade yourself, because the person is border-line retarded.

Sorry I had to rant, but the last time 2 times I went to BB, I couldn't trade games, both times they had to look for person who knew how to do trades, and after 20 mins of waiting, they found out the person went to lunch.

Fuck Best Buy.

if it weren't for free 5 dollar games, I'd never come back. CC for life!
