Found a gears of war 3 bundle at Target for $250 out the door therefore I:
Traded in my black 360 slim with no HD $130 with coupon, plus $4 for my $1 hdmi cable, $3 for wired headset. Sold the 320 hard drive for $70. Sold Gears of War 3 for $17. So I'm happy with this deal

It was a 250gb but I sold the 250 for the 320gb and just kept the hard drive before I traded it in. So idk how they figured it

Cheers, thanks for answering! I think I'll just haul my 4gig in and see what happens, the thing's completely worthless to me without an HDD.

does anyone know if the 10% extra for power-up pro also applies to the 30%? So would it be 40% on a used system?

I'm 90% sure that the 10% powerup pro will not apply to console trade ins. Only games and accessories. I've never traded a console at gamestop, but I'm 90% sure I've read this many times in previous threads.

Shit the sale is outside of the return period for my preordered NG3.

NG3 sucks. At least NGS2 sucked with girls in it. This didn't even have Rachel :(

I traded in my ps3 last month so I thought I would post just incase it would help anyone.
My model was 40GB probably of the first or second generation. The only tampering I have done with it would probably be a harddrive switch which i obviously switched back to the original when turning it in. My 40GB YLOD'd so I did the Hairdryer trick and turned in the ps3 for $100. They said the estimated value of my PS3 was 50$

Awesome. Is there a trick for a busted blu-ray drive? I might be SOL.

Alright, so I traded in my 4gig Slim and a wireless controller and got a total of $130 store credit. This was with using the coupon.... so I think they stack? I can't really tell because all the receipt shows is Xbox slim + $50 promo = $130.

Regardless, I'm VERY happy with that amount.

Unless they upped the xbox 4gb slim TIV from $55 to $80 base.

Which is very possible, like I said my receipt doesn't have ANY of the breakdown it usually does when I trade stuff in.

I think they upped the base of it. My friend traded in his core fatty 360 with no hdd and a wireless controller. He got 75 base, then 50 from the coupon. I don't think the bonus 30% was applied though since he still owed about 80 bucks after tax. I'll have to ask if I can see his receipt next time I see him.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate all the information. I have a crapload of stuff to do tomorrow, but I'm going to try to go to GS and trade in my ps3 even without the extra 30%. It's not as good of a deal as last time but oh well.

$125 for a core 360 is a really good deal if you have an old ass non HDMI unit. I traded mine in for $110 right after the CECH-3000 PS3's came out and thought that was the best deal I'd ever get for one.

He also got the free copy of Arkham City, could have picked Mortal Kombat if he wanted. So, 125 and a game is a pretty great deal for a fatty core unit.

So my launch 360 that's been "fixed" by Microsoft (and again by someone on Craigslist) + a wireless controller would net me $66? Is that correct?

I just called and got a phone quote of $150 for a 250GB Slim 360. The refurb fee on that system is also $55 in case anyone is wondering. So I am pretty sure I am taking mine there later today for $145 with the coupon. The DVD drive won't open on mine and I can't imagine I'd get more than $145 anywhere else.

This does not stack like the OP said it would. I just traded in my ps3 and only the $50 coupon applied. They also took off a $35 refurb fee because the system wont read discs. I guess that's pretty reasonable. I traded in batman, uncharted, and and then bought the uncharted bundle. It worked out like this:

$85 - $35 = $50 base for ps3
+$50 coupon
+$27.20 for Batman arkham city
+$20.80 for Uncharted 3
=$148

Then I bought the $250 Uncharted 3 bundle with Batman arkham city, so I guess I got a console upgrade for $102. I traded in some other stuff to get the final price down to $36.20.

Is $102 is reasonable to upgrade from a bad 5 year old 80gb fat ps3 to a new 320gb slim ps3? My alternative was to ship my console to sony to repair for $150.

Do u mean if I bring in a working 250gb slim Xbox, I can get 200 bucks ?
