Bah. I'm really tempted to trade-in my MW2 Xbox with the 250GB hard drive so I can get a slim this holiday season. I'd get $130 right? I also have a copy of Borderlans, Halo Reach, I think I still have a couple of Pokemon games somewhere and Portal 2. I would end up paying for a new slim.

The only thing holding me back is that I would have to renew my PUR...


At best you would get $90 (maybe $95) for the system and then $20ish for the HD. I got $95 last Sunday but that was the last day of the extra $50 promo and the base was $45. I kept the HD and bought an empty case off Amazon to mount it for my nephew's 360 because their HD went kaput. Better than spending $80 for a new one. No reason to renew PUR I think. These promos are not PUR exclusive?

I thought hard drives counted for the extra 100%. Maybe I'll just keep mine then and just trade in the games.

As Donut said this is not always true and I know from experience when I traded games in towards the previous list. Always do separate trade in for the games on the list. Don't listen to the GS clerk that it will give you the best offer, a lot of them doesn't even know about the PUR list.


Thanks. I will trade in 2 separate transactions.

Unfortunately they count them as accessories so you only get 10% with PUR on its own.


Something I like about BBY used games...order Borderlands and get GOTY for the same price!

The system gives you the best promo automatically, so you'll be fine. You can easily just pay attention to the values before completing the trade.


That is absolutely, positively NOT true all the time.

So GS dropped the pre-order price on the Halo Bundle to $349.99. It figures it happens the day after I buy a Holiday Bundle. Would have waited but now that I used a $50 PUR reward cert I am stuck with the Holiday bundle. Sigh...

That's only the case if you already opened the box. I've done something similar before(I bought a regular 360 a few days before they started taking preorders for the Gears 3 console and used a $20 reward certificate) and what they did was processed the return, put whatever amount I wanted towards the Gears 3 console, and then added another $20 to my preorder to make up for the reward certificate. It might be YMMV, though, as I'm not sure of the common practice in that situation.

However, if you already opened it, they're usually pretty strict with new consoles. You can exchange it for the exact same thing but you cannot otherwise return it for a refund or towards another item. At least...that's how it used to be.

So the extra for power up members won't stack with trading in towards a new release ?

I traded in 6 games off that list plus preordered Halo 4 and the system gave me the extra 50%.

For those who know: if I call gamestop, can I order sometging online and not get charged tax if I use my trade in credit? I want to order the xbox bundle with forza and skyrim and dont want to pay the $12.50 in tax.

Is it policy now not to check consoles?... Da' Fuck?

/side-story start:

I had a 120GB Slim PS3

I got a game disc stuck in there which made the system pointless, but $100 for Sony to fix it or pay a craiglister $60+ just to remove disc was a high price

So I went to youtube, watched the DIY Video, folowed steps, fucking cakewalk, but nervous as Fuck
Got game out, closed up, runs perfectly, just doesn't take discs (lol)

/side-story end

Traded it n today to Double Promotion:

$85 became $170 (no repair or refurbish fee either)
Got $37 for Transformer FoC + Darksiders II
$30 for Sleeping Dogs
$8 for Tekken Hybrid

So roughly $283 for all trade-in

Pre-Ordered and Paid off Black Ops II
Bought $50 PSN card
Re-upped Power Member till 5/2014

Still have $158 left

(Was eyeing the PS3 Pulse Headset, Hopefully it gets a small price slash/drop during BF)

Was amazed the guy took my PS3, gave me credit, while chatting, was boxing it up to be shipped to warehouse/refurb center

Hilarious!

Thanks. They can also see how much your PUR savings/bonus is. A cashier told me I earned $1,000 in PUR savings so far. lol shit.


I was trading in some games yesterday and the guy told me I had saved over $2,500. He said it was the most he had ever seen. No way I spent that much but he said it counts trade-ins as well.

Forgive my ignorance and I appreciate any info on this urgent matter that I have:

Is the Xbox360 120Gb Elite Black Edition (in full working condition) worth anything (after bonus), with the full set of accessories and two wireless controllers.

Thanks!

According to one of the OP posts, I think you'd net $90 (after promo) for the console/cables/one controller and then $11.xx and $20 for the HDD and second controller separately (without promo).

Thanks, the amount of knowledge I have on different models of Xbox 360s is embarrassing....I looked through the OP and didn't see any mention of Elite so needed some input.
Thanks again.

No 50% at my usual store (B2G1) is going to make it harder to trade a few of my games. Most are on the powerups list but 3 are not (L2D2, Orange Box and Spider-man:SD) so I am limited in my %. Maybe I will sit on them and see what happens next week.

I'm just trading in a few things on my list that I made sure I paid less than what the trade in was for and either haven't/won't play(Mario Kart Wii, Zelda, GTA IV complete) or that I don't think I'll get back to anytime soon(Saint's Row 3, DMC HD)

GS doesn't care what version of the old 360 hardware it is, everything is either an old style 360 or a Slim.
