    640$ store credit. I use BBTS often, and I am sure those 640$ go a longer way.

    Depends on the situation. I would take cash if I need it but I would take credit if i plan on using it. Also if you have a friend who plan on using a lot of it could always buy your credit or sell them to for less

    Depends on what you plan to do with the money I suppose. If you do a majority of your shopping off the retail shelves, then cash might be good, since retail figures are cheaper in the stores than at BBTS, but if you've even considering imports/3rd party then the store credit will go a lot further.

    This is the best advice. If you need the money for things other then toys, then the cash is the way to go. If not, store credit.

    Personally, I'd take the credit. I've got more than that in pre-orders already.

    It depends. DO you know if you will spend that $640 at BBTS? If so, and if you are into 3rd party I can see it going quick, take the credit.

    If you are not going to buy anymore take the cash.

    Take the credit since your shipping charge will more than likely exceed $100.

    Like most everybody else has said. Depends on your financial situation right now. For me, I would take the cash but that is just me.

    Neither. Last time I sent them a list, the offers were insulting. I know they have to make money, but what else is $10 for a MISB Alternators Swerve when they were selling for almost $200?

    If you're looking to buy more toys, price out what you want on their site versus some competitors. They have some pretty crazy markup on certain items and there's no need to get hit twice. If most of your wants are reasonable or on their clearance list, though, definitely go for the store credit.

    *I like to _buy_ from BBTS, but I don't like trading in toys with _anybody_. It's too much like trying to get your money back out of all those "valuable" baseball cards.

    Cash, but just to be safe. The $640 in store credit is nice, but it wouldn't do me much good if I had a sudden life expense come up or if I wanted to save toward a vacation or car.

    Since you are sking me what I would do, and not what I recommend you do, I would take the store credit. I also live in San Diego and I am extremely intrigued at what you are selling...PM me if need be.

    I would take the store credit, since I buy from them all the time.
