Expanding the GCU only trade in perk/bonus beyond the extra 10%

The 10% is a nice perk but with the loss of so so many other GCU perks it would be certainly appreciated if BB would start to add to a program that has been getting quite stale IMHO. My idea is to make every week a bonus week for GCU members so there` s no more waiting for the 50%/100% bonuses. Each week have a new or continuing trade in bonus promo running and obviously when there`s regular trade in bonus running it would apply for all customers. The bi-product of this would be the further increase of new GCU subs which can`t be a bad thing.

Sounds good but it really could be something that leads to abuse.

 

Example, and I did it.  I went to some garage sales last year and 2 of them  had a whole bunch of Xbox  and PS3 games for sale for $1

 

So I purchased all of them and went down to game stop and sold them for an average of $2 to $15 each.

 

An issue with having continuous 50 to 100% bonus it could lead to abuse.  Resell of used games is not much of a money maker for BB is it more of a service convenience.

 

Also, keep in mind you are no longer paying over $100 for 2 years of GCU but only $30

They already have trade in limits to cover themselves plus your scenario still remains in play regardless of bonuses since people would be going for profit small or large. The cost reduction of GCU from $120 to $30 is BestBuy stupidity at it`s finest. Instead of listing to the droves of customers wanting BB to strengthen GCU for the $120 price they don`t listen and have to reduce the cost by 75% due to lack of new full price sales. If BB can`t offer amazing deals recieving an extra $90 per customer then it`s time to hire some new blood. If they simply offered 3 $10 pre-order/purchase coupons for any title in the welcome kit plus the buy 2 get one coupon on new games that would`ve done wonders for the $120 subs.
