I bought 5 boxes and ended up with 3x Superman, Power Armor, and a Claptrap

Anyone looking to upgrade to the new Lunar White X1 controller should definitely trade in any old X1 controller.
Lunar White X1 Controller $44.99 (BF Price)
- $39.20 X1 controller trade in credit (50% + 10% PUR Pro)
= $5.79 out of pocket

I put in a store pickup order for 6 bottles last night and to my surprise they were waiting for me in the afternoon. I have no plans on selling any of them.
My Pip Boy arrived from BB in a shipping box that was destroyed. Steelbook and everything inside is fine though.

I went to 4 gamestops around me and bought another $1500 of ebay GCs, just in case all stores stop allowing GC purchases with trade credit. Especially since you can get back essentially 10% today with eBay bucks, can't beat that deal and way better than visa GCs. There is a max of $5k in ebay GCs you can buy (a day? a month?) with verified paypal account, but hopefully no one is close to that. The only bummer is that none of these GCs will count towards Elite+ status.
Still got another $900 in trade credit from summer flipapalooza, but thats a pretty good amount to hoard at gamestop.
So yeah back to buying all my games at best buy now, woo hoo!

I will be the judge of that. One more question: Do you have to use the balance all in one transaction or can you break it up across multiple purchases?
Multiple purchases is fine. You can keep using it until the balance is $0

...including Visas (if we can find them)?
Probably. I wasn't even aware they sold them until I saw it on the exclusion list.
Sitting on a little over $100 left from the big trade promo this summer. Question is whether to cash it out for eBay gift card to buy BB gift card or see if something is worth flipping to BB this weekend with the 50% trade in bonus and possibly make a little more. Opinions?
I would just hold out. Anything $100 or under you can just save for future deals (Black Friday coming up)
If you have $200+, I would definitely cash out now.

A couple things to note. The POS will allow the transaction to go through on any Gift/POSA card from what I was told. So if you get a clueless employee who doesn't care or know of the new policy then you can get whatever you want.
Exclusions seem to vary by store/district. My store wasn't too sure on what should be excluded and only hand a handwritten list of what the manager wrote down from a recent conference call.
If you're looking to cash out, the best time to do it is now! eBay cards seem to be the best bet since it isn't excluded (at least at my store) and you can purchase many other gift cards with it. Gaming/Food POSA cards were not excluded either.
Hopefully others can report back on how their stores are handling the new policy.
