Taking with a grain of salt but the guy at my gamestop said if you reserve the slim DURING the promo dates and don't get it until after the promo ends, they'll still honor the promo trade in prices since you technically pre-ordered during the promo.

I can see that as being a guy just talking but if it is store policy then no worries



the problem with this is that the Gamestop computers handle promotions. I doubt the computer will handle a situation like that well.

I'm also doubtful the current TIVs will last until the end of this promo. I certainly hope they do

The trade in values for the 360 and accessories are the promotion so I would certainly hope they last throughout the promotion.

That's base. I'm sure they got the $25 bonus.

Just traded in Tiger Woods 10 for the Wii and received the bump to $25, so it still works as of this morning.

Well I posted this in the other Gamestop 360 Slim promo thread, but thought I'd add it here too since people are talking about this a lot here:

Like others here, I really don't see how Gamestop can make any money off old traded in 360's. I didn't think this deal would last very long, so I bundled up my launch 20gb 360 (still working perfectly) and took it in for the trade. Got the following credit:

Launch 360 console (bound to die sooner or later!): $100
20gb hard drive: $30
Wireless controller: $25
Xbox 360 small remote: $2.25
Xbox 360 old wired headset: $5

Total credit: $162.25

Paid full balance of 144.63 and preordered a new 360s (of course they didn't have any in stock, but I can easily wait). I had been wondering how I could get rid of the old system before it fried, this made it very easy.

I wonder if Gamestop has some kind of deal with Microsoft to turn in the old 360s for credit? Doesn't make sense otherwise, the older systems are virtually worthless on Ebay or anywhere else.

I thought the Xbox 360 trade in promo does not end until 7/18/2010. I was thinking about holding onto my system until more arrive and put $50 towards the slim. And when the end date for the promo is close I will trade-in my system.

OT, but there were reports of Microsoft working on a Jasper based motherboard that would fit in the original boxes. Not impossible, if it would lower the number of RRoD they have to process. Edit: appears it is the 'Opus' MB, that serves as the replacement MB for RRoD prone 360s

Gamestop may also benefit by offering some carrots on the system and making bread on the extra games that people trade in to make up the difference toward a new system.

Hey guys I have a couple questions

I want to trade in a DS Phat, DS Lite, and a PSP
Will I get the $25 hardware bonus for each or in total?
The DS Phat's hinge is just a little broken so will I still get the bonus if I have to pay the refurb fee?

Thanks!

Hey cutie- Yes- you will get the $25 hardware bonus for each and every system you trade in. If you don't glue or repair the slightly broken hinge (hint ..hint) and they want to charge you the refurb fee on that one you will still get the $25 hardware bonus on it as well..

YMMV possibly.

Told, did not bring in, the clerk at GS mine had a hinge crack that made it so the screen(when you open it to a certain spot) wouldn't lock in place any more and he said that they wouldn't take it because "We don't take the system if we can't fix it".

I finally called Gamestop and got them to use the $10 off (rather than 10% off) coupon from the UFC contest on Darksiders. First time I have ever contacted them on the phone - the guy even threw in overnight shipping for free for my "troubles".

Impressed.

Now - hope the game was as fun as the demo.

A local Gamestop manager told me that the promo may end early or be adjusted, as corporate underestimated the amount of hardware trade-ins they have been receiving. Has Gamestop ever done this before?

The manager was definitely not trying to get me to preorder, as he didn't mention this until after I had traded in all my hardware toward the new system. Glad to see they were giving full credit on preorders.

I leave for a few hours and this is what happens...haha

Anyways, they wouldn't let me turn in the DS Phat because of the hinge crack and wouldn't let me turn in the PSP because the serial code sticker got ripped off...not sure how probably my brother...so that kinda sucked. Oh well I guess I'll try selling on ebay. I also traded in some games though.

Zelda Twilight Princess - 9.50
Rainbow Six Vegas - 2.75
Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core - 3.25

But I also got the edge card 10% and extra $10 bonus so I ended up with a grand total of 27.05 for the three games. Not bad for games that have been collecting dust for a couple years.
