This is in-store only, and even with a "100% Bonus" you're still getting screwed pretty hard.

@calvariae: What is "screwed pretty hard?" I am not big Best Buy fan, but their trade-in values have been similar to Gamestop and Amazon when I have traded in games. I will agree that certain games can vary significantly.

A lot of people seem to hate on Best Buy, Gamestop, and even Amazon for their "low" trade-in values, but that is the nature of anything used. If I drive a new car off the dealer lot it is immediately worth 30% less just because it is used. Games are even worse because the cost new drops so quickly. Lately, brand new games have been selling for half the original price after just a month or two. If brand new cars dropped 50% in price, how much do you think that would hurt used car values? I realize that cars and video games are not the greatest comparison, but it does illustrate the point.

Yes, you can sell your games and make more than trading them in, but many people don't want the hassle of selling items.

@etewald:
Scroll to the bottom of the page: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Games-Promotions/Special-Offers/pcmcat8400050004.c?id=pcmcat8400050004

And if both of the listed offers stack this would be the best deal of all time.

There is absolutely zero hassle to selling on Amazon; you have to setup a seller account. Its like saying flushing the toilet is such a hassle after all the energy you expended taking a dump. The only hassle is actually having to get up and drive to USPS or UPS or Fedex. Its worth the extra bit of money you get. Just sayin.

@wnyx585am: Yeah, you just sign in, then go to "Your Account" then along the right side it should say "Your Seller Account," the rest is pretty straight forward. If your wondering.

From what I've seen, Best Buy pays the more for pre owned games than Gamestop
