Woops! put in the wrong value on the adapter, was actually 32.00. Still a lot more than the last recorded value.
All of the accessories I had ended up being worth about twice as much as the OP. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up getting almost $45 after bonuses on the adapter too.

They don't stack...it would have been sweet if they did but nope.

Does trading in a system for the wii u stack up with the 30% hardware bonus that is being offered right now. Got an old xbox 360 that I have been meaning to upgrade for awhile. Trading it in for 90 bucks plus the 30% hardware trade bonus would be a sweet deal. Will that work or should I just call to make sure???


Nah, it doesn't stack. The only thing that does is a flat bonus of $10 if you are a PUR member.

What bonus was applied to the adapter? Is there a trade in deal on accessories?

ah sweet dude. Thanks. I think I may trade in my 360. I have been doing the math and I think I can almost cover the WiiU. Still trying to decide if I want to pull the trigger and if I want to trade in my Wii as well..

I would assume so, aside from lying to them. I doubt they'd try to resell a 0gb Ps3.

I noticed that a store nearly have tekken tag 2 used in stock. Would that be 54.99 or $47.99 as the website say?


Should be $47.99 since it has an online pass & it's not published by Sony or WB (those get online passes on the receipt.)

I was told today that you can only trade in one PS3 controller per store per day.

I said so what, I have to preorder 3 games to trade in all three with the 30%.

he said no, just come tomorrow and they can see you made the preorder and we'll give you the 30%. Then you can go to a nearby GS and trade the other controller and get 30% as well since we can see on your PUR than you preordered. This was near closing so I couldn't do it that night.

That seems weird to me, I had no problems trading in two controllers before. He also said he'd let me just out $5 down, but I want to get Borderands 2 anyways for the preoder bonus so I just put all of my tiv on it.

Guess I have to go tomorrow and trade in a DS3 to one store and a Sixaxis to another and hope his story wasn't BS about not having to preorder again. I got his name so I'll personally tell his manager to cancel my preorder I made with him and tell him why I did so.

Damn this sucks. Might have to stop procrastinating and start trading these controllers in. I can see them changing the promo/ dropping the value real soon.

I traded in 2 PS3 controllers, 2 old Wii controllers and 2 360 wireless controllers at a single store tonight...put 5 on pikmin 3.

He had to scan the barcode in again after I signed for it and then it seemed to work no problem.

Also traded in earlier today with the 50% pur coupon(had to preorder something else ugh; I did notice I got the bonus before he added a pre order on).

360
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 - 13
Witcher 2 - 13
Left 4 Dead - 12
Need For Speed Most Wanted - 14
Civilizatoin Revolution - 10
Spider Man Web of Shadows - 11
Blitz II - 9
Mass Effect - 10

PS3
Fight Night Champion - 8

I'm not sure that last part is true. When they bring up your PUR account, they can only see preorders made at that particular store. I'm pretty sure they can see purchases made at other stores but not preorder deposits.

Only GotY/Ultimate versions with extra content on the disk get more credit, that's why they're listed seperately in the OP (Fallout, Borderlands, Dragon Age, etc.)

I didn't even have to think twice about trading in my 360, since the games I bought were multiplats and I just ended up buying them on my PS3 instead. I actually hadn't even plugged in my xbox since I last moved a year and a half ago. Heck, I only had 3 games for the thing.

I will say I am not sure if I want to actually get a WiiU or not, but nothing stopping me from getting a good trade in now and just canceling the pre-order later depending on what I decide.


I'm thinking about trading in my 360, but I have no interest in the wii u, cancelling the preorder later wont affect my credit it any way would it? I wouldn't think they would even track it but I'm wondering if anyone knows for sure.

Just traded in a few more things today.

Sixaxis - $18
DualShock3 - $30
HDMI cable - $4

She had me apply the total to two pre-orders, one of which I don't want. Do I have to wait until the game releases to cancel? Or can I cancel the pre-order tomorrow and still get the 30% bonus trade amount?
