Anyone trade in a ds/ds lite without a charger? I lost my charger and want to trade it in, but I was just wondering how much they'd deduct. If they took $10 off I might trade it for the $30, dunno.

Has anybody traded in their iPhone 4/4s? If so, a brief sentence on what they do to verify "working condition" (look up phone serial etc.) and general trade in process description would be much appreciated.

Watched someone trade in a 4 last night while I was pilfering their cheap ps2 games. From what I saw and overheard the employee just turned on the phone and made sure it worked and was far more concerned about cosmetic flaws than looking up a serial. However they were busy at the time and like trading in anything at GS it's gonna be highly YMMV as to who checks what and enforces which policies.

Good luck. I considered trading mine in with the current promo but I think I'm gonna sell to a friend.

When I traded mine in last month, they turned it on and went to settings to verify the capacity, checked for flaws and sent me on my merry way. Pretty painless.

My phone trade in was pretty rigorous. They checked all of the buttons, camera, speakerphone, and did a solid once over for physical defects.

Really depends on the employee. My iPhone trade in took less than 2 minutes. She swiped it open, looked at it, then clicked on settings to check the serial number.

Yeah I traded a touch and a 30gb video and I know that both reps gave me a higher grade than they should have because they know me. It would probably be a good idea to trade those items to some one you know, who knows you and has a good rapport with.

Anyone trade in PSP games lately? I've got a shit-ton just sitting here (drive broke in the PSP and it never gets used) and would love to at least get "some" credit for them, but if it's like Best Buy's $.25 a piece they can go pound sand ...

Hey guys, since you guys are the trade-in masters, I need some input.

Im trying to get rid of some things I dont really use and I have an Ipod Touch 8GB 2nd Gen. However, there are some problems with my ITouch. First, it has a large amount of scratches on the back from usage over the past three years. My mom also dropped it a year ago and there is now a dent that is on the power button. It still turns on and off, but sometimes it takes a couple of times pressing the button. How much will the refurb fee be? How much do you think I will get with the 30% trade in bonus ? I might be able to get the scratches off though. Thanks for reading this and helping me out.

This is what I'm wondering. Mine has a lot of little scratches and nicks on the back and a few scratches on the screen. Other then that it works perfectly.

I'm still not sure if I want to upgrade to a new iPod touch later this year

I just got an e-mail for a +50% game trade-in promotion at a select store. If I'm not mistaken, hasn't this usually ended up indicating a universal trade-in promotion, or something about stores being located near a Best Buy? (The store indicated in the E-mail I believe is not far from a Best Buy.)

I'm still considering the PS3 swap (phat system for the new super-slim bundle). But I still have to deal with my son's locked saves. I can pay $18 to get him 3 months of PS+ (which seems like a total waste since I only need it for a few days). OR, I could just buy the new bundle tomorrow when it is available, do the Ethernet swap at home, then just trade in the old system for $125 instead of the $135 I'd get with the trade-in promo. So that costs me $10 in credit, but gives me the flexibility of doing the transfer first.

I could ask if they will give me the trade-in boost anyway when I go back to do the trade (since I'd come back the next day to do the trade). But they wouldn't accomodate me on the Wii U power trade deal - said I had to redo the preorder when trading and that wouldn't have worked since the Deluxe (which I preordered the first day) were sold out at that point. I remember back in the day managers had the power to override things and get stuff done for the customer - I wouldn't have hesitated to ask for the deal with this one manager (who has long since moved on from GS). That doesn't seem to be the case any more - oh well...

I suppose one way they may be able to accomodate me is to return my purchases system the next day, then resell it to me with the trade-in. That seems ridiculous but that is probably the only way to make it work without an override.

From what I understand, they won't even have the super-slim till tomorrow, right? So there are only 3 days of overlap between the deal and when they actually have the system. I'm not 100% sold on the slide top on the new system though - that is also making me think twice about it.
