My BB had a good selection of under $20 games. I got Red Faction Armegeddon for $5. Might go back for Bodycount $9, Syndicate, or Fight Night Champion... (all 360)

If I sign up for a 1 month free trial, can I do the rent/buy thing on a OOS game? (on the trial) And under those circumstances, will I have to wait to receive the rental 1st possibly risking the price going up? Or can I rent to buy right away?

Yeah, I value my time. Takes me about 1 minute to list on ebay or CL while in my comfortable chair and maybe 30 seconds to walk to my mailbox. I've gone to Best Buy before and waited 15 minutes just to get somebody to the game area who could process my trade ins. It usually takes them longer than it should to actually get it finished, as well. And all that to get bent over for store credit...lol


Ebay/Glyde vs Craigslist is another argument, the first is usually quick, but the latter can be difficult, and time consuming. Craigslist might get you the most money, as the original poster said, but if you are selling 10+ games, that could be hours of effort, as well as a 60% success rate. Ebay might take an hour or two (including $ from getting S/H supplies) but has maybe an 85% rate. Going into a store that has everything on site might take a half hour, but you walk with your next purchase you would have gone to get anyway, and its 98% guaranteed.

I got silver 4 years ago when I bought my house; got a washer and dryer, 2 now old tvs, and more crap etc... but they keep renewing my silver membership each year though I haven't even come CLOSE to 2500 since then. Just got a new card. (though I think my renew was in February...)
