In Topic: PSA: No more buying gift cards with gift cards at best buy soon..

03 May 2018 - 02:07 AM

I'm glad I cashed out most of my points for gift cards last month. I haven't been buying much at BBY lately and it was nice to be able to buy a restaurant gift card with reward points and gift cards when I couldn't find anything else I wanted to get.

The $20 increase is annoying but wouldn't bother me that much if the value was still there. I used to buy a lot of games from AWD, now that they stopped taking trade ins for so many games and stopped taking trade ins on movies, AWD hardly has major restocks and I went from ordering AWD items a few times a week to 2 - 3 times a month. It was nice to be able to order a last gen game for a few dollars or less, finish the game, trade it back in for maybe $1 loss (or no loss if you count No Rush Credit). Basically a budget version of Gamefly.


The other problem is the increase of the amount of add on items. Half the time I used to get to the $25 order requirement, they shipped the add on items individually anyway. I now use a Kindle Fire to order add on items which gets around the $25 minimum but then I can't get the No Rush Credits that helps offset the cost of Prime.

When I have traded in store, they also usually flip the disc over and look for any deep scratches.

Are Lloyd and Aquaman unique polybags just like Super Girl?  I've been wondering what the bundled Lego Dimensions starter packs are like.  Does Lloyd and Aquaman even include their fun pack vehicles in their own starter pack bundles?

I bought a pack with Lloyd today. It's just in 2 small clear plastic bags with the manual sheet. There are 2 figure bases so it looks like the vehicle is included.

I would hate to see GameStop as the only place to trade in. I'm probably one of the few people on this site that don't trade in there and rarely shop there at all (last purchase was in 2016). It seems like every time I try to buy something I have a problem like a worker trying to add a warranty onto a game purchase after I said I don't want it and then hoping I wouldn't notice the extra charge. The few times I tried trades there years ago was also problematic. It was things like being lied to in order to get me to sign up for their paid membership with my trades, not taking disc only games, not allowing a trade in bonus unless I preordered a game even though it wasn't required for the promotion etc. Even though NorAm is shady, I have had most trade ins go smoothly and like not having to go to a store to trade.
