Your not even locked into getting a 3DS you just get the giftcard...good way to stack credit for the 5 for $100 RZ deal, stacking Amazon credit, making a PS3 and/or PSVita $150.

When you click on the deal, the estimator tells you that the xl is only worth 75, and the dsi is only worth 50. Seems like a great deal, but they're going to need to update their system first.

I Didnt expect it to show correct on the site b/c it's instore only for the extra credit. Show the CSR @ the trade in kiosk what the value should be per the listing.

I'm glad I stumbled on this b/c I have some ungrateful lil rugrat cousins who have abandoned their reg. DS's since they now have 3DS's. Now all I have to do is let them have some TRU/BB/BBV clearance PS3/PSP/360 titles in trade for the DS's as early Xmas presents.
Should end up with $600-$700 in credit from BB & that pays for my new PS3, PSVita, car stereo & all the tv show seasons on DVD that will be(already Dexter is our now) coming out.

Wow the DS Lite is only worth $50 at best buy? Kinda sucks that i missed the 3DS trade in promo where it was worth $70... ugh

Gonna hold out in hopes they run the promotion again when the red 3DS is released.

:(

I wouldn't bet on that after the DS lite MSRP price drop to 99.99.

It seems like an ok deal to me. I have a DS Lite that I got from Walmart for $60 so I am really considering this. I don't think I will use it anymore since I have a 3DS.

This is actually a VERY good deal for DS Lite owners...considering it dropped to $100 and the fact that places like Gamestop will only give you $25 for a used one. Gonna head in there ASAP and trade in my two DS Lites, maybe pick up a $150 PS3?

I should have waited and traded in my DS Lite at Best Buy rather than Amazon. Amazon was offering $50 for it in "excellent" condition but when I sent mine in, they accepted it at a "good" condition and I only got $42.50. I know it's not that much of a difference but it would have been nice to get the full value I was expecting. I doubt Best Buy would be as picky.

Not sure if your asking but $250 PS3 minus the $100 max giftcard $150 PS3 outta pocket. If you have a good # of pawns shops might be a place to search as well as craigslist.

When is the end of this offer?

No idea it's not listed & I don't know when this offer was posted on the site. I'd say act before Sunday to be safe as most deals end on Sat.

To all who are wondering I called my local Best Buy (Auburn Hills, Michigan) and they told me the promotion starts Sunday 7/21. Also they said you can do more than one at a time.

My Best Buy must suck...either that or the people are idiots. It says "Current Promotions" and they tell me it doesn't start until 7/21 even when it was on the site a few days ago. Oh well, maybe if they're that stupid, I can trick them into thinking my DS Lite is a DSi and get 100$ for it lmao.

Stupid question, but can you get 40% bonus if you preorder an item? Would be sweet to get $140 towards a vita...

The promo also shows up here:
http://www.bestbuy.c...cat232900050010

However, when you click on the ds trade in promotion the popup for the console estimator states that the DSI is only $50 gift card for good condition (the highest condition you can choose).

So is it $50 or $75 for the DSI and is $75 guaranteed at all best buy locations?

I would hesitate to call this deal dead though. Even if it is in store only, it is still a good deal as long as we get the correct trade in values that have been specified.

Anyone try this in store today (sunday, aug 21)?

Confused, the online estimator (when I tried it earlier in the week) never showed the "in store" promo amount, always showed lower. So it's acting just like it did earlier.

The online estimator NEVER showed the difference only the promo in the OP link stated anything about the actual amounts.

I just did this a few hours ago in CA so its not dead yet. Got a $40 gift card for my DS Lite. $50 - $10 because the bottom screen was scratched a bit. A guy in front of me traded 2 DSi, a good condition for $75 and a fair for $60.

then I'd suggest people interested hop on it ASAP b/c the promo moved from the original place with all the offers fast & there's no date on when it started or ends. Will change the OP back.
