How do we know what games they accept? Is there a list?

Says anything except sports games and only one of each game. Thinking it's very likely subject to change after they've received 450 copies of Titanfall 2 at each location..

I have another question.

What's the best way to retain the credit?

I read in other threads it's better to put the credit on a pre order game so you don't get charged tax or something? (IIRC)

I'm always torn with these $10 min trade in as a "collector".

I finished all three Wolfenstein games. Am I likely to replay them anytime soon? No. Do I like having them in my collection, yes. I don't want to go through the hassle of repurchasing but at the same time....I have a solid 30 games that I feel the same about, you know?
I had this struggle in the ps1/ps2 days

Yes.

Put it on something that isn't coming out for another 100 years but is still actually preorderable in their system, like Death Stranding.

Then basically you can hold it until you want to use it, and when you go to make that purchase just cancel the preorder in the same transaction.

Would a VISA Gift Card work too or no?

Technically yes but that's a non-taxed item so you lose the taxes on the trade. If you keep it on a preorder, it behaves as a pre-tax credit so there are benefits. If you put it on an edge or gift card, it becomes cash value so you lose the pre-tax benefit as well. Also most of those prepaid cards have fees on them so that's up to you, but sticking it on a preorder is the RFD way lol.

So I should start buying the cheapest games they have so next time they run this promo I can trade them all in and make some $$$$
You get store credit, and their regular prices aren't the hottest. Their rare sales promos are worth saving your credit for, however. Or you could just transfer to a gift card.
