Shesh, how many of us are here in Houston?!  We need a CAG meetup!

Honestly? yes. I was shocked by how many they had. When the deal popped this morning and the two BB's closest to me had none I remembered I had gone into the one (Greenspoint BB in Houston) while looking for some speakers for a friend yesterday after work.

 

Grenspoint?!  Why on EARTH would you shop there when you could head the 15mins up the road to Spring or 20mins up the Woodlands.  There's a reason it's called Gunspoint! :)

Look at it like this man:  As many other members have said (including a couple in this very thread!) this is ultimately a waste of money, even at $60.  It only works on new games that you don't PM and don't have any hardware bundled with it.  Unless you are buying a ton of new games right at launch, or buy every last damn thing that's on sale, you'll really struggle to make your money back.  These constant "sales" on the membership just drive that point home even more, obviously Best Buy is having a lot of trouble getting people to sign up.

 

Had GCU worked on items you price matched AND worked on movies/cds I would probably bite at $30, hell MAYBE even $60.  But my roommate (who got it for $30) has found it to be a colossal waste of money thus far, and since he doesn't have a PS4/XB1 I doubt that's gonna change.

 

 
 

I'd count on it if we don't see $60 become the permenant price flat out.  If GCU membership signups are as abysmal as everyone says they are I'll be surprised if they don't lower the price, radically alter the program (after all nothing says BB HAS to keep giving you 20% off games right?), or just end it flat out.

 

You are really bad at math.




#11595064 Best Buy Trade-in 5.0 - see FAQ in OP!

Posted by honzoh on 09 March 2014 - 04:43 PM

I know people love to disbelieve, but I was able to trade it in for $84.  It DID take an override, so whoever it was that said it didn't is full of it.  There was no arguing, the system showed it as $20 + 100%, and when showed their site the CS agreed it should be higher.  Supervisor/manager was called, took a look at the site and immediately agreed.  Was ready to walk away if they didn't want to trade it that way, but they had no problem doing so.

This is EXTREMELY YMMV.

Stupid move by BB.

 

They'll learn from it.  They spent years being the underdog, then spent all of last year with crazy-good promotions to win back shoppers.  It worked, so they've pulled the plug and will take a hit to that business they had built back up.  Then when they need that business again, they'll start offering up crazy-good promotions again.  

The sad state of all of this is that it shows they view their loyal customers as expendable.
