If they do have video of this he should put it on YouTube
I'd call and complain. As many cameras they have in stores nowadays, it wouldn't surprise me if it was caught on film. I wouldn't call the store, but 1-800-TOYSRUS.

I always appreciate enufs posts ! Sometimes hard to read but always has a point. He is trying to inform ppl is all.
Most of the short hand is common in BB(BestBuy) threads non BB regs generally pm for total A-Z. BB/GCU generally have alot of moving parts and/or offers overlapping so I try to only factor in the "base" values.
VGC= Visa Gift Card
MBB/MyBB= MyBestBuy points
GC/GCU= Gamers club Gamers club unlocked
EP/25% bonus= Elite Plus bonus of base pts
$205.95= Total cost of a fully loaded $200 VGC, $5.95 is the fee
For this offer years ago I would just post
"You can earn Elite Plus for $101.15" or "With this deal BB will pay you ~$108.xx & give you elite plus, take the $108.xx and make 2 yrs GCU cost ~$11.xx". Either of these options would delight most CAG`s but only a few would have any idea how to make it happen.

Only got rejected at the one store so I'm not too worried about it. Every Walmart employee I dealt with (even if they didn't know what they were doing witch was almost all of them) was pretty friendly . They have a job to do and you can tell they have never been trained to do trade ins so it's not there fault at all.
Yea, it's pretty interesting that nationwide people are reporting the frustration that the employees are having with us doing this deal. Even the stores I have frequented the employees have been bothered with the amount of money I have been receiving for the few games I trade in. When they see me get $244 for only 4 games they are like wtf...
I get it that they are like wtf... but I don't know why they want to have a personal vendetta against people trading in games.
I haven't been rejected anywhere, but I am shocked to hear that several people are actually getting turned away and told the promotion is not going on anymore. Only to find out it's the employees being resentful.
Midnight is almost upon us. Hopefully Best Buy ads a couple more games on sale that are profitable. I know they start their new sales on Saturday evenings/Sunday Mornings but it usually changes by a game or two every night.
Hopefully this is the start of another great holiday trade in season! I believe the iPad flips started around this time last year ???

Thanks for the help Darby. If these values hold a few days this could get very interesting.
Yeah, it should. In my two trades, the employee helping me just put it onto a physical gift card.
Edit: if your Walmart has a borderlands vita bundle and you have a GameStop vita coupon, its a decent way to transfer credit back to gamestop for more games. About 170 for the vita and memory card plus whatever you can sell the bl code for.

Pm me I'll give you a code
I have a fat vita and a few games I'd love to trade in during the bonus. I renewed PUR yesterday; nothing on the receipt and no in-store offers show in my account. I read back a few pages, and are these the only ways of getting the bonus coupon? The extra $50 bonus is advertised right on the PUR website which makes it frustrating...
