That is anything but a love story. It's almost frightening how much it isn't a love story. It's about obsession and selfishness. 

One change could have really made Passengers a fun survival space flick instead of a creepy story about abuse, manipulation and Stockholm syndrome in space. That whole thing was only added to create more unnecessary conflict in the first place. 


In Topic: Best Buy Trade-in 5.0 - see FAQ in OP!

I don't think there is a minimum now, I just looked up Madden 07 for PS3 since I thought an old game would get next to nothing and it only gets $0.22.

Man, that original $1 minimum was amazing at times. Flipped so many Gamestop PS2 games that were like $0.25 for like $2.10 at Best Buy when they did a 100% bonus + 10% GCU. Sure, GameStop employees thought I was weird for buying a bunch of horrible old PS2 games, and Best Buy thought I was odd for trading them in, but good times. 


In Topic: NHL 17 for $14.99 ($11.99 w/ GCU) PS4/XBO @ Best Buy

I've never done it as I've never had the opportunity to test it. I have heard of people doing it. I would just take my purchase to the car, discard the packaging, and then go to CS for trade in.

I have 3 BB'S with in 19 minutes of me. So it's not a big inconvenience for me to go to another location. But I understand not everyone has that luxury.

Technically your not breaking any rules, but you don't want to ruin it for everyone else. Remember ...

Be discrete; don't flaunt it.

 

This. Go outside, open the game then go back in. Don't talk about how you just bought it. You'll be trading in with a different person than you paid when buying it so just don't be that person and you should be fine. 

 

For some reason when I transfer an item from my wish list (saved items) to the shopping cart it'll sometimes offer me free shipping even if it's less than $35.  Probably a glitch.

 

I just tried it with NHL 17 and it worked, although I already own it digitally so I'm not going to buy it.

 

Edit: I forgot to mention that I have GCU.  Not sure if that makes a difference.  From my understanding GCU membership doesn't include free shipping on orders under $35.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

You sir deserve a cookie, this worked like a charm. Free shipping (not 2 day but still free). I "saved it for later" then went to my saved items and added it to my cart and it worked!

Yeah, what's with the shipping cost?  I'm an elite plus member too, not a some normal non-elite barbarian!

Was tempted to pick up two copies and trade one back in for a slight profit (and essentially reduce cost of the one I keep) but would have to wait until September 8th for free ship to store. 


In Topic: Best Buy - trade in a working laptop and get a minimum $75 gift card

I may have to take advantage of this. I have a laptop from 2004 that appears to be eligible. Thing has been sitting in the back of my closet for years.
