#13578980 Best Buy Ad 12/25-12/31: 50% Trade-In Bonus on XB1/PS4 games

Posted by tears2040 on 27 December 2016 - 01:07 AM

Traded Skyrim, FFXV, Fifa 17 and BF1 for 147.50 total


Congratulations, you traded most of the newest video games out everyone is playing.........  What's the point of even buying video games if you're going to trade them all in, New Age gamers makes no sense to me......


They buy an insane amount of games they will never play, huge backlog and then just trade them in.......

Feel like an Idiot..... Spent about 30mins trying to print the coupon today as it stated in the directions that this CANNOT be scanned from your phone and must be printed.


Went to BestBuy and they simply scanned it off of my phone when the printed paper was giving them problems....... FML


They say things get worst before they get better, I need better days!

I guess GTA V won't be seeing any upgrade via PS4 Pro since it wasn't mentioned. Buying it now would be a great investment for playing it in November in 4K. Even Shadows of Mordor is getting a texture upgrade. FFS Rockstar. : \




If you want to play GTAV in 4k use an Xbox One S today, because that's exactly what the PS4 Pro does..... UPSCALE

Dark Souls 3 is the only PS4/Xbone game with a $29 TIV and I can imagine that values will only be lowered.




I just traded in Quantum Break yesterday, YESTERDAY for $35 to Best Buy. Amazing they dropped it $10.........  I'm GCU so I got $38.50 for it. Seems like a dodged a bullet as QB imo was not a fun game that I happily traded in.......

#12365258 Best Buy Gamer's Club Unlocked Membership - $30 for 2 years

Posted by tears2040 on 28 December 2014 - 05:20 PM

So most new games cost $59.99 - 20% ($11.99) = $47.99 + tax (6% $2.88) = $50.87



I would rather just buy from Ebay as they ALWAYS have games new for around the $50 mark within the same week + you rack up points with them as well. Best Buy is another option, but honestly I don't see this as really being a good deal for $10 off of new games......

Only want DA:I, so I went with 2x Fifa 15 ultimate, DA:I deluxe all for PS4.  Trade the 2 Fifa to Amazon for 96.96.  Netting DA:I deluxe for a little bit over $22.

I never understood why people say this and never will........



If you have GCU you still paid over $118 for $96 in Credit. Yes the game only came out to about $22+ but you still had to spend over $100+ of your cash......


Now if you could turn that $96 into CASH instead of Credit then Yes you only paid $22 for DA, but you can't.....

I think you could have just left it there and we would have all understood.



It's the last 16 digits of the long number FYI.  Figured that out last night while trying to make sure I actually got my money.

Thanks a lot!!


But still, Walmart is the absolute worst




Failed to trade in games at 2 Walmarts today. The first one the guy couldn't get the promo to work and said that their equipment wasn't working correctly and the other one didn't do trades past 9pm. A bit of gas wasted but I guess I'll try again tomorrow.


Also don't think I'll do this again with Wal-mart. Just gonna have to stick to gamestop whenever they have a sweet deal.


Had enough in my games to probably get a Wii U, but I'll just sit on the credit until something good comes up, like black friday.

As bad as I hate Gamestop for their low trade in values, I must say they have a system in place that works.

Posted by tears2040 on 16 July 2014 - 02:42 AM

No words can express how H O R R I B L E my Walmart experience was today , I guess it also doesn't help that I live in South Florida......



First I walk up to this one Guy and he's like wait a minute be right back, leaves the register alone for easily 30+ minutes.......

Then there's another worker which what appears like hiding in the aisle and clearly sees me standing there waiting for someone, he finally comes over and decides to help me.


The first thing he tells me is we don't have Madden Pre-Order cards, there's at least 100+ of those cards I reply....... Then when I bring them he says that trade in policy has changed and you have to use all of the money to buy another video game....... I tell him it's for Madden 15 the game hasn't come out yet, he gave me that lost look on his face like he had no idea what I was talking about......


I guess after a couple of minutes it finally clicked in and he started the trade in process. First thing he says is wow $59 dollars, is this right, blah blah blah.... Then he's like the trade in system is down it's not working right now.

I tell him well reboot the system, he's like that could take 10 mins, I'm like okay I'll wait.


Finally starts the process again took him about 15-20 mins and he's like it's not working, another 10 mins an he's like "oh I figured it out"......

The credit is giving on some piece of paper and I'm like what is this, I want a regular gift card.... He then proceeds to tell me to go to customer service.


I go to customer service and they are even more lost. 1 employee goes to another, to another, to another and finally tells me you can use that paper online..... I just leave.

Come back and noticed you cannot use it online as it's not a 16 digit code and just some upc code that's on the paper, I then ask for a manager and the male employee goes somewhere else and never comes back. I just leave the store and go home....


So I'm sitting here with a $5.00 pre-order reciept which I will return and the rest on some piece of paper with a upc code which guess I have to buy something and return as well. Such a bad process just to trade something in. People beware, even though I got $59 for Mario kart 8 the whole process is a headache.



Finally why is Mario Kart $59.99 in store and like $48 online, funny thing is they don't price match, even funnier is you can order online and pick up in store at the $48 price.......


Man this is just too much, Walmart is simply the worst

#11895568 OLD THREAD: New thread in FIRST/LAST posts.

Posted by tears2040 on 04 July 2014 - 11:23 PM

I feel the complete opposite. I sold my first PS4 because I fell for the Titanfall hype. Ended up getting bored of it after a few days and switched back to PS4 when the right trade in deal popped up again.


Infamous Second Son is better Dead Rising 3 imo. The Last of Us Remastered comes out in a few weeks. Most multiplat look better on PS4 too.


Both consoles are great but PS4 is the way to go for anyone who just wants 1 current gen console imo. 

Infamous series is on PS3, PS4 not much different...... The Last Of Us is already on PS3, same thing.....


Multiplatform games look the same,  PS4 runs some games at a higher resolution and others the same, unless you pull out a magnifying glass.....


I still say if you have $400+ buy a Wii U and PS3 and enjoy a more diverse and complete library. PS4 really doesn't have anything, in my opinion Xbox One has a better current library + better future. One thing to note is developers will continue to support PS3 and be able to be more creative as they know the system much better now and it will be cheaper to develop for. Personally I think PS3 is one of the best consoles released.


Yes PS4 will eventually get the same great/better games but as of TODAY it's still a waste of money. Even at $265 from Cowboom I feel the PS4 is overpriced. Wii U is a much better system just the way the games are designed and integrated with the game controller. Mario 3D, Mario Kart, Zelda, Donkey Kong, etc. just look and feel so wonderful.


My post is long enough and no need to continue off topic, I have the Xbox One here sealed which I might keep or sell. PS3 and Wii U is more than enough for me. The ONLY reason I might keep the Xbox One is for Watch Dogs, as from videos it seems the PS3 version definitely got the shaft.......

#11839277 [PSA]Target $15 off ANY GAME with $1 Preorder sale

Posted by tears2040 on 13 June 2014 - 06:10 AM

Hey guys, sorry for not updating the spreadsheet today. I have a really bad ear infection to the point where I can't chew even a burger or drink water. Hopefully I'll be better by tomorrow.

Cheap on, CAGs.





Slightly off topic but do yourself a favor and go to Whole Foods or any farmers market and buy some Organic Ginger, follow the steps in the picture I posted and also read up online regarding using Ginger for Ear Infection. You will thank me 10 Fold......


Also you can use Hydrogen Peroxide in your ear as that will help with infection.


When I had an Ear Infection due to a misplaced q-tip which damaged my eardrum it was the worst pain ever....... Trust me and get this done asap







Over the years I've found Flipping to be really a waste of time, the older I get the less patience I have for people. Peace of mind too me is priceless.....


When PS4 came out  they had a Target Deal the following week for buy 2 games get one free, I combined that with a price match + buying these pre-order cards to get some special coupon for an extra 30% off.


Yes I finally made it happen, but when I think back to the time spent, getting customer service, sales people and even managers to override and accept things I said to myself never again.......


I'll just use price match or special trade in deals, but overall I really don't have the patience or time to drive back and forth to so many stores and dealing with Target employees who want to make your life impossible.......

Was this the same coupon you used to get 30% off?










I was able to get the b2g1f, and add the 30% off coupon.  I received the coupon by just having someone at the register scan a presale $1 game card.  I didn't have to buy anything.  The first one didn't get the coupon.  Void.  Second one, got the coupon.  Printed it out, and she voided the transaction.

I just came back from Target and this was the coupon that printed. Is this the 30% off for all agmes? Reason I ask is because it shows those Mario games like it's only for those???????
