I traded in Metal Gear Rising and Tomb Raider into Best Buy and got the 100% trade in bonus as well as the extra 10% for being an Unlocked member.

I was hoping you were gonna say you traded your soul.

Your soul is worth less than that at Best Buy. Trust me.

Seriously. If you at you're cards right Best Buy is amazing. What Naughty Doug said. I took a bunch of junk games (I.e. tiger woods 09) with the 100% trade in and loaded up

$50 PSN card and put the other $17.20 on my Bioshock Infonite preorder. Meaning I'm only paying $20 for that game after $25 in rz certs and I get another $20 cert from that game.

@Oskar I paid $6 for Metal Gear after trades to GameStop and after certs and a $40 gift card to Best Buy I only paid $14 for Tomb Raider and I got the $20 cert from them for that game.

Fox, with all your wheeling and dealing, you make me proud.

You got ripped off.

No matter how much of a "deal" you think you got itll never be what you couldve got on Ebay or Craiglist! Probably couldve sold them for $45 apiece and got real money that you could use anywhere and not just at BB or GS.

To be fair, Fox is a gamer, so he most likely will use the credit to get other games from Best Buy. He got his enjoyment out of the games he traded in and still received a nice little return without having to go through the trouble of listing and shipping on Ebay for a couple extra dollars.

You already got the $20 reward certificate for pre-ordering/purchasing Tomb Raider?

I do enjoy BB's 100% trade in bonus. Essentially traded in 2 used games to net me a free new game (+tax).

Yeah it was really fast. My god of war one is pending now already as well. I should have it next week.

This is the first time I've seen someone proud about losing $42.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 16, 2013 5:02:50 PM PDT
he only actually lost $22.68 (depending on taxes) if you had the $40 ($20+$20) he got for each pre-order. but is it really a lost when you played the full game and enjoy whether he kept them or sold them?

MrFoxhound says:
I spent $20 total, cash for both games.

Oh shucks...the best buy employee must have done my pre-order/purchase wrong since I purchased day one and it doesn't state anything besides 2X the points in my account. & if I call Best Buy Customer Service will just tell me to wait 35 days argh

How's GOWA? I was close to pre-ordering but I havent finished TR (b/c of work) I'm about 45% done though. I love it!

$128 (including tax) paid in credits/cash whatever
$67.20 return in trade credit
$40 returned in reward certificates

True cost of both games ~$20 versus Redbox 2 day rental of Tomb Raider and 1 day rental of MGSR true cost of ~$6

Could have and may still be able to sell BB TR preorder bonus comic book and DLC codes for $20-25 on eBay

I honestly stopped trading in games a long time ago... Unless it's a game I hated and never ever wanted to see or even have in my possession again. I was able to return Dragon's Dogma for a full refund since i bought it used, so technically not a trade in... I think the last trade in I did was with... OH it was Super Mario 3D Land, the game was worth 30$ in trade at gamestop... which is more than I originally paid for it.
