Console must power on, not be damaged or have its warranty seal broken to be considered working. Condition, documentation, or accessories may affect value.

Thanks, OP. You save roughly $40 on that PS4+Vita bundle, FYI.

 

Boy, with the "GCU for $60" repeatedly coming back, maybe BBY should make that the normal price. :roll:

not a bad price for the ps4/vita bundle although they could have been more aggressive with pricing or included a PS4 game as well as the vita game.

 

I would have done $550 with a year of PS+

Use a 10% mover's coupon and get $56 off.

The PS4/Vita bundle is 2 separate SKUs, so doesn't look like an official bundle and I'm guessing you wouldn't get $56 off with a 10% coupon. Maybe $40 off.

 

I'm guessing if they had an official bundle to announce at E3, they wouldn't ruin the surprise by putting it in an ad that comes out days before the event.

This makes Bound By Flame a little more attractive at the same $25.99 price point, but I can still hold off on it.

I'll have to see if they'll give you that Turtle Beach deal if you price match. I would consider buying the XO Four headset if I got the $20 gift card AND I could get them for the $80 Amazon has them at. Then there's the part of me that says this is a stock-clearing sale because those headsets weren't great and the replacements are about to come out.

 

The important thing: Do either of the XO models work on the PC?

Also, anyone know if that system trade-in would stack? Could you trade in a 360 and a Wii U and get $100 off a One?

That's dumb.

 

Also, the way they word it...it says on the ad that you get a minimum of $150 from select consoles. Does that mean if you do the 250-GB 360, yo uget the $50 AND the $100? That's what it sounds like to me. My brother-in-law has a 4-GB 360, and he's looking at getting on One this summer. It might be worth it for him to try to get a used 250-GB 360 HDD somewhere, then trade his 360 in for the extra $100 in credit.

 

That, and my little brother wants a One, and he has a 250-GB 260...if trading it in means $150 towards it, then he might get it as well.

So that $150 is extra on top of whatever value the 250GB 360 or 250GB PS3 is?

 

EDIT: Just checked the values. 250GB Slim PS3 trades in for $31. 320GB Slim for $97. 500GB GT5 Bundle for $55.

250GB S 360 for $71 (all bundles are this price). 320GB S 360 for $14  -$71.

 

With the $150 it'll be $164 - $221 towards an Xbox One. idk, not that great of a deal unless you have the 320GB Slim PS3. But values might change.

Yes. That is what it sounds like to me. $50 coupon for any working console assuming it is listed in their trade in program as well as minimum $100 gift card if it is a 250GB 360 or PS3 Slim. I'm not sure if you get a lower gift card if it's any other system or if you only get the coupon for something like a fat 360.

That is not what it sounds like to me, but who knows. I can't really tell for sure from the ad.

So I was trying to figure out this deal... the $150 is minimum?   or is it a max?

 

Really confusing so I thought I'd google around and see if anyone else is talking about it.   Then I found this article from last month.

 

http://bgr.com/2014/...xbox-one-offer/

 

Trade in a console (360 or PS3) and get $50 coupon + $50 giftcard towards a XB1.   So I take this to mean if you trade in a $11 console, your getting $111 total towards a XB1.

 

 

This was last month, this actually might be what it sounds like ($150 minimum) towards an XB1.   This would basically be the same deal offered last month + a flat rate return for consoles.   $50 + $100 (older deal) for any console or $100 + $100 (older deal) for a higher tier 360/PS3.

 

It's a bit fuzzy when we know the higher tier 360/PS3 say they get $100 but you might be getting $200 total for those systems instead of the $150 that is minimum.

 

 

 

What do you guys think?   Are we looking at $150 off for any system and $200 for a higher tier 360/ps3?

If this was their deal a month ago, this wouldn't be a HUGE leap to offering a Flat Rate return price for consoles ($50-$100).   It's kind of a spin off of the electronic buyback program they had a while ago for Digital Cameras, MP3 players etc.

 

With the price drop of the XB1, this is a pretty dang good offer if you have some older consoles sitting around.

Funny how it's the exact same price as if you were buying them separately. A bundle doesn't make sense without a discount for buying both.

I meant to say price match, just realized my typo in your quote.

So if you price match you still get 5% off?
