Might be worthwhile for someone looking for the upgrade, but that deal from the holidays where you could trade in practically ANY Xbox 360 or PS3 for $100 beats the pants off this.

Thanks but no thanks. You could probably sell those versions for twice as much on eBay or Craigslist. And considering the state of the game library for the Xbox One, you'd be better off both gaming wise and money wise to stay away from this deal.

You might get a better deal for the 360 by keeping the console and trading in the hard drive and power brick to gamestop. I guess that's an okay price if you don't use your ps3 and want a xbone though.

Are these promotional values on top of the trade in value for each or instead of their trade in values?

$100 off? Fucking garbage. These systems are full of great games and you would be a fool to do this. You could get $200 easily off Craigslist if you absolutely had to, but I wouldn't do it for that, either..

I just saw Slim. The minimum is $150 if you sell it on ebay and becomes $135~ after ebay taxing. Only worth it if you are pretty much desperate to get money =/

unless you are trading in a rrod/ or banned xbox 360, or ps3 slim that does not read disc. i doubt most people would do it. it just needs to turn on at bestbuy , when they take in consoles. It is not like gamestop, where they take their sweet ass time playing a game on it, testing it out.

 

Edit: i guess once the ps4 supplies are replenish, there is a good a chance for a similar promo like this for the ps4.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

i doubt bestbuy is that stupid( but who knows), as they still do sell slim xbox 360 250 gb. Since they are no longer selling phat xbox 360 consoles anymore.

 

Edit: actually people might get away with it, base on the ambiguity in the wording, since people were able to get bestbuy to honor those $60 + trade in mistake prices  during the last months 100% trade in.

This. Even though, I almost regret trading in my launch 20gb PS3 for that $100 promo (mainly because I didn't play the Last of Us)

Are you shopping craigslist in 2009 again?

Haha. I was thinking the same. 

 

Without "researching" any, I would think you could get $125-150. But if you're going on ebay, after fees and shipping it might be less than that. I would at least consider this exact deal if it were for $100 towards a PS4. Selling used games is nothing, but selling a console is a different matter. There is alot of value in the convenience and ease of a instant trade-in credit.  

 

I would consider $100 a "fair" deal. Not a great deal (like when they actually did offer $200 just a year or so ago), but I wouldn't feel totally ripped off either - which I'm sure whatever the normal trade values are, I would be.

...then I was like: WTF did I do? Now I own another one :/

I was close to doing that when it was like $175, or whatever the last really high offer was from Gamestop. I will definitely keep one of this gens consoles, but I felt like between the PS3 and 360 I needed to eliminate one of them. 

 

I was actually feverishly trying to finish up my 360 backlog just to trade it in. I didn't make it, now my 360 backlog is bigger.  :wall:

 

Honestly though, if I see an offer again where I can actually get MORE than the console is worth. I think it will be time to liquidate and make room for new consoles (Wii-U, PS4). Rarely have I regretted parting ways with an old console - once I actually do it.

I don't think we're ever gonna get that $100 best buy deal again. Id settle for $75. But not with the hard drive.

Same thoughts.  It's fair.  I have a CFW PS3 slim that I had because it allowed me to remote play some games on my vita.  Now it is in a box in my closet collecting dust.  So could I conceivably get more than $100?  Maybe.  Is it serving me $100 of good right now?  No.


Selling on Amazon as Gaming Cheaply

 

Please feel free to PM me if there is a game you want to purchase cheaper than Amazon Warehouse or Gamestop.

If you desperately need to sell your 360 for peanuts in order to afford an Xbox one, you should rethink jumping into the next generation for now...because if you can afford a $500 console - I mean really afford it; not scrap together $500 from gift cards and birthday money - then you can afford to keep your 360. But I suppose this is more applicable to working adults with disposable income.

as for kids and teens...i guess all they care about is instant gratification and could care less if they're getting ripped off. If the bottom line says they'll be getting a new system, common sense goes out the window. Ahh, the blissful ignorance of a teenager.
