How do we find their values now? Didn't the old site go down?

Seriously, like he said, don't even think about wasting time on a hardware trade in- a 3DS trades for $20 and a XBox 360 for $7 when I looked a week ago. They'll actually give more for a PS2 than a 360.

I guess that explains why the trade in system was down a couple of weeks ago.

I wish there was a way to look up values online again even if the trades are in store only.

TRU is barely keeping up.

TRU is ahead of Sears. But both TRU and Sears are just slightly ahead of Circuit City.

'nuff said.

I tried trading in some more games tonight:
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City 360, $0.30. I kept this
Max Payne 3 360, $10.xx
Mario and Sonic At the London Olympic Games Wii, $15.xx . I was surprised at this value since it trades in for under $10 at Amazon.

Not bad for Max Payne when I got the special edition for $20...
