Late Sunday night I traded in my 40GB PS3 for $125. I was upset to find out that just 10 hours later the promo changed the way it did. I just got back from GameStop & after spending over an hour waiting around for the store manager to make a bunch of phone calls & figure out how to sort things out on their computer system I finally got $160 in trade-in credit.

Base hardware values pulled from the other thread:
PS3 40GB: $90
PS3 60GB: $90
PS3 160GB: $90 (looks like any fat PS3 is $90, no matter the model)
PS3 Slim 120GB: $90
PS3 Slim 160GB: $95
PS3 Slim 320GB: $100


I asked why my 40GB wasn't getting $180 in store credit & he showed me their base price list. Turns out the 40GB's base trade-in credit price is *$80 (not $60, that was a typo). So, ALL systems do NOT have the same base price.

Traded a dualshock 3 and a sixaxis and got Borderlands 2 for $0.89. My once a year GameStop trip worked out well.

How did you get $160 then? Am I missing something?

Sorry, typo. I meant $80 is the current base credit trade-in value for a 40GB PS3 system.

Quick question, I was going to trade in KH 3D and MK7 for the 2 for $40 deal, as well some other games. Will I still be able to get the $40 or would I have to do the trade in separately?

SSX - $5
NBA 2K12 - $9

A lot less than I was expecting for SSX, for some reason.

EDIT: Right, just checked. The GS TIV is listed as $12 on the site. Super big hit/drop.

Gamestop employee charged me a $25 refurb fee for my xbox because there was an "M" in sharpie on the bottom corner as big as this font, and my controller was dirty. Nerd. Dude is lucky I had been drinking and didnt really care at the time...

120 gb ps3 slim $90 base held today 10/3.

I tried to trade in a logitech rumblepad 2 instead of the dualshock 3 but I was refused. Had to trade in a dualshock 3 and usb cabe w/ the system for them to finally give me the $180.

For the 30% preorder power trade, what happens to the bonus trade in credit if you have slightly more trade in credit than the game you're preordering?

Lets say I trade in 2 controllers and the total trade in w/ bonus comes out to $65, but the game is only $60 -- do they allow keeping the $5 as trade credit or will they reduce the $5 by 30% (giving only 30% up to the purchase amount)?

You keep the credit. The company is bad, but they aren't THAT bad.

You would have to put the money towards your existing pre-order. That should be fine unless you get Capt. Retail and he/she wants to be a PITA

Existing preorder would be perfect. Still have to pay 4 off.

Perhaps. I only traded them in because of the 30% additional toward pre-order of White 2. Though the closest BBs to be are all 40 minutes away which equates to a bunch of gas money and the base TIV for SSX is $4 (so about .50 more than I got from GS after the promo if the base is doubled) and $5 for NBA 2K12 (so about $2.50 less than I got from GS after the promo if the base is doubled). Plus I had about $214 in GS credit (down to about $197 now after paying off the rest of White 2) so such little BB credit doesn't help me.

Had planned on going to BB, but couldn't pre-order 2K13 for In Store pick up and didn't want to hold them until I'm in the area next week to pick up Dishonored, so GS made sense. It was only a bummer because, looking at last reported values (and not knowing about the SSX sale that his that game's value) I figured I would only owe about $7 or $8 for White 2 and not closer to the $15 that I needed and that put me under $200 GS credit.

Little late to this thread, but question regarding the 2x trade in for hardware

Can I walk in there with my 3DS (which was getting 100 towards a 3DS XL trade) and get 200?

That can't be right, right?

I have a question, the Power Up Rewards steal of the week is 50% extra trade in credit when trading in games towards RE6 or Pokemon White/Black 2.

Does this stack with the 10% PUR bonus? As in it will become 60% extra trade in credit total? And lastly, if I trade in games in excess of the value of the game will I still get the bonus? I don't care about any of those games and I wanted to trade in like 8 games and use that towards Wii U stuff.

Thanks in advance

Yeah, it's confusing but it does start on a Wednesday so maybe it was a typo. Still not as good as 100% increase.

Ugh, 50%! How did I not see this either? Could have gotten even more for SSX and NBA 2K12. This just isn't my week :no:

Base Trade-in Value on 10/4/12

$27.50 PS3 Dual Shock 3
$ 2.00 PS3 mini USB cable
$20.00 Xbox 360 wireless controller
$20.00 PSP 2000 system
$ 1.75 PSP Slim Component Cable
$ 4.00 PS2 Okami
$ 1.50 PS2 Odin Sphere
$ 5.00 PS2 Final Fantasy X
$ 1.25 PS2 SingStar Country (game only)

Used the 30% trade-in on select title promo for everything except the PSP system. Manager told me it only works on games and showed me the Epic Mickey 2 flier that specifically said games. I showed him the website ad http://www.gamestop....0-trade-credit/ and asked him to try it anyway, it worked.

Did the PSP system trade-in on a separate transaction and put the credit on my rewards card. Then I got Borderlands 2 (pictured in the 30% promo) and still had $34 left. Manager wouldn't let me out the door without putting it on a pre-order.

Me: Can't we just put the rest on the card?
Manager: I would if it was a dollar or two, but that's too much.
Me: Ok, well I'll just return it. I guess I'll pre-order uh.. the zombie game for Wii U.. Zombie U?
Manager: The reason you're getting this much is because of the promo and you have to pre-order and come pick it up.
Me: Ok, I'll get Zombie U
