Sketchy fucker. Thanks for the heads up.

Check the links for the tag of "tag=dollbill-20", which is said sketchy fucker Dbill309.

 

Anytime it's a shortened URL in here, it's a sneaky hidden referral attempt. :roll:

Don't use this hidden referral link.  Use this direct one instead:

Also to everyone saying I'm a dick or I ruined it no I didn't get over yourselves I just donated 100 boxes of cereal to a local food charity program.

Sorry, that's trying to justify taking dickness to new levels. 

 

The "I donated cereal to charity, so suck it!" is along the same line of supersizing a McDonald's Value Meal and finishing it off with a Diet Coke.




#12899767 SteelBook Worldwide Exclusive 2015

Posted by shrike4242 on Yesterday, 08:02 PM

After reading the posts in here, I am very glad I called the store for my pre-order yesterday and had them put one aside.  My plans for this morning changed and I was able to run over to BB before work and pick up my steelbook.

 

I'll echo my sentiments from what I found in-store:

* My pre-order had to be done as an exchange and not a pickup fulfillment due to the bundle SKU shown on the pre-order card, since the SKUs didn't match.

* The CS rep who checked me out was the same one I talked with on the phone yesterday and she told me that 4-5 people weren't able to get their pre-orders fulfilled because of the system not working to let them know about the pre-orders.  She said they weren't pleased.   Mine was the only one pulled and set aside at the CS desk because I had called them first thing to put it aside, plus it was the last copy in the store at the time,

* The only way I was able to get my pre-order pulled and held was giving them the info off of the receipt showing the register # and transaction # of my pre-order transaction.

* The new display rack had a nice hole for the item matching the SKU # of the steelbook without any copies there.

 

Basically, had I not called yesterday, I would have been shit out of luck.  Thankfully, the SB copy I picked up had my name all over it, plus my phone number and a back-office print of the receipt. I didn't think I had any reason to think it was going anywhere, though hearing the horror stories, I'm glad I'm done with it.

 

BB online ordering for this movie can go suck a big bag of sweaty balls.

#12899420 Amazon Trade-In FAQ 6.0

Oh and have a look:

 

Professor Layton AL $20.97 GS (New only)

 

Amazon Link (G) $24

 

Interesting credit mover with just enough for you to buy some Earl Grey Tea....

 

...

 

OK, I know Jean-Luc Picard liked Earl Grey but I don't think they really covered which tea was Layton's fave. Good hunting lads!

It's more used, so it may be a bit harder to find new versus used.    Only one store around me has it and it's one I won't go into due to a dick manager.

Try again, I see that error occasionally. If its oos, it'll tell you before you even choose the shipping method, not at payment screen.

Also if you put it in your cart and your PUR Pro discount doesn't apply nor CAG16, then it's OOS and the site hasn't realized that yet.




#12899077 Amazon Trade-In FAQ 6.0

lusal, anyone who posts potential items in the thread is always appreciated.

Now that we have the source, we can keep an eye on it and see if more of them come up in the future. Posting the source is also appreciated.

I did spot check a number of items at the link you posted and they're making some big assumptions:
1) The BB-sourced used items are available, which all of them I checked weren't available for shipping nor locally in any of my local stores.
2) The TIVs keep their value, which I know isn't going to happen except for the day that the TIV is posted.
3) BB doesn't nuke their TIVs on a daily basis, as they do during a trade bump promotion. None of the TIVs for BB matched what was on the post.
4) They assume a game-only submission will match a trade-in value as posted for Amazon, which we all know won't happen except on a grader not giving a shit. Acceptable is best to hope for in those situations and they get rejected more often than not.
5) The Amazon used prices are pretty much wrong across the board.

One find of note:
Donapon Kingdom PS2 $5.99 @ GS: http://www.gamestop....n-kingdom/72280
Trades in at $11.59 G at Amazon: http://smile.amazon....2/dp/B001AMRR26

Another one:
My World My Way DS @ $19.59 G, Amazon: http://smile.amazon..../dp/B001L0YT00/
Gamestop, $9.99: http://www.gamestop....ld-my-way/73478

A rare Amazon to BB find:
Final Fantasy XI Seekers of Aboulin X360, http://smile.amazon..../dp/B00B23MO9Y/ , $3.99 + $3.99 shipping @ GoHastings
$9 base at Best Buy: https://tradein.best...sal?sku=8858054

It's not all crap, though it's mostly crap since there's no idea how long ago this stuff as posted. It just needs spot checking to see what's crap and what's not.

Armored Core For Answer PS3 is close to what was posted, with a TIV of about $16 (G) and is (was?) in-stock at GS for shipping at $9.99/$8.99.

 

The (Game Only) ones are Hail Mary items where it's a game-only submission for bundle packages, which we know can be a huge crapshoot.

 

A number of the ones at BB may or may not be available locally or for shipment. 

 

TIVs are also all over the map from the post.

Now I am torn with buying the 360 and PS3 versions of MGSV as well.....

It's your money, throw it in a hole if you want to.

Almost lost my MM BB steelbook to a local scalper. Not on my watch buddy. Didn't see any MM SB at my local Target at all. 

Wouldn't it be odd for a BB-exclusive SB to be at Target?

Luckily we'd be using controllers friend

Then, I'm sure there's plenty of joystick waggling you can do all by yourself without me.

Xbl blackjebu5 or psn rest216...I'll buss that ass in any game...but I was simply saying that the controller is pointless

No thanks.  I don't need to waste my time with people that measure the size of their e-penis with their oversized mouse hand waggling.

The controller doesn't add skill...and I personally don't see the point in them cause Its still not a mouse ;)

PC Master Race, your door is down the hall, third on the left.  Don't let it hit you in the ass on the way through it.
