I've been watching this promotion for a day or two waiting to see what items qualified for trade

 

http://www.radioshac..._content=HMPGA1

 

Trade in 1 qualifying item, get $5 gift card
Trade in 2 qualifying items, get $10 gift card
Trade in 3 qualifying items, get a $15 gift card
Trade in 4 qualifying items, get a $20 gift card
Trade in 5 qualifying items, get a $25 gift card

RULES:
1) Item must be in working condition
2) Customer must present drivers license and store must participate in RadioShack trade and save program
3) Customer must process all applicable trades at one time. Customers cannot trade in one device at store A and then trade in three additional devices at store B.
4) Customers will receive credit off their purchase or a RadioShack gift card, whichever they device.
5) Customers cannot process over five items per drivers license(Not sure how we are tracking that?)

 

Folks on Fatwallet have been reporting trading all sorts of junk, the easiest being random old headsets. What just caught my eye is the fact it includes video games, so let the games begin.

 

Apparently not all RadioShacks are participating so make sure to use the store finder on this page

Wonder if they'll take five America's Test Kitchen games?

this reminds me of the deal that Target had going on last year where you can dump any old PS3, gamecube, and older gen games for a $20 coupon

Is the whole FAQ just an image? They make it look like you can click and expand on the questions but it ain't working.

I was wondering the same thing.  So it is.

I think those same people do the Radioshack trade-ins.  At least that's what the employees taking the trades told me.

funny enough, that was actually run by Radio Shack, remember how you had to do it at their cell phone kiosks? Those are operated by Radio Shack.

Do they sell $25 XBL cards?  It seems like the $25 needs to be applied to a purchase immediately from reading the site.

 

EDIT: according to that PDF it appears that the system blocks your drivers license from doing any more trades for the promotion after the first.

I didn't even think of that. This may be a great way to flip games to radio shack for PSN credit.

This is interesting to dump off cheap games laying around... but I never shop at Radio Shack to begin with. Most of their stuff is overpriced and really doesn't interest me. So the question is cheap games laying around... or... $25 Radioshack giftcard laying around. Both will collect dust all the same...

Folks in the FW thread say they are given a gift card, so the reality seems to be the purchase does not have to be made in same transaction.

Yeah, it says in the promo off purchase or GC.

I think in the conditions it says "Instant trade-in credit cannot be redeemed toward the purchase of gift/entertainment/airtime cards and cannot be combined with coupons or other offers."

So get it put on a GC.  It's no longer "instant trade-in credit" :P

Amen to that! I was already thinking of how many different ways I could do this and who I could get to help me out. This definitely has potential. Not to mention my local Gamestop employees will love me getting rid their $0.99 stock.

I wonder if the games have to be in cases or not to trade in?  If not i could see going to game stop to buy up cheap PS2 games that are 75% off right now and just flip them to radioshack.

I'm confused how this works. Is it anything that you can trade in or are there specific things? What's stopping me from buying 100 99 cent games at Game Stop and trading them in for $5 each? I have a Game Stop and Radio Shack right next to each other.

Quick go try those!  If that works GS has PS2 games for 75% off last I checked.

Well it's limiting it to one promo (five items) per license, but someone needs to go try it with stuff like that so we can find out.

I've never traded in anything at Radio Shack before, but they can easily have unique GC's for trade-ins that have their own special properties like the "store credit GC's" from Best Buy which are tax exempt.

 

Honestly, I hope you're right since this would make this a great deal; but I haven't seen any successful reports of converting it to any psn/xbox/kindle yet.

I haven't seen any reports of people trading in at all. (on here or FW)

I actually traded in to Radio Shack awhile ago and bought PSN credit. I don't even remember what it was that I traded in, but I know that the trade in value for whatever I was trading was higher than other places.

Deal originated from SD, it was posted by a radioshack employee. I was going to do this deal but then held off. Don't think a $25 gift card is worth having my driver's license info stored by radioshack (probably with crap encryption).

I'm sure BBY or GS or someone else has already lost it at some point anyhow.
