Target Trade-In

(Apologies in advance if this is threaded elsewhere; a couple searches turned up nothing.)

 

I had no idea that Target accepted trade-ins of electronics, games included, before today, but I swung by my local Target and saw an ad in the story (that I neglected to snap a pic of) and then looked it up online.

 

Lo and behold, there's a Target trade-in program. The interface is clunky, and not gonna yield TIVs all that easily, but it appears that Target accepts 360, PS3, Wii U, Wii, Xbox, PS2, PS, DS, Vita, and PSP games -- because the program's powered by NextWorth (much more searchable interface, FYI), which buys the games.

 

You're not going to get a lot for them, especially the older games (I nosed around a little), but this might well be a sign that Target actually wants to compete in the secondary market. And, if this is important, you apparently are getting cash, not credit, for the games.

They have been doing so for awhile. Im guessing you missed the trade ANY 2 games get $20 off promotion last year. Was a blast buying $0.50 games and gettting $20 off. Haha.

It's been around for, what, a year now? Longer maybe? Nobody talks about it because it's a joke; they have never had one good trade value, let alone a flip. A nice effort, OP, but I wouldn't waste more time looking over their values if I were you.

I very much missed this, yes. Ha!

A little more Googling says Target's had something since either 2010 or 2011, but the NextWorth integration looks new. I'd never seen an ad in a Target before tonight, though, and I guess dropping things off at a Target could be more convenient than mailing them? (This ain't Convenient Ass Gamer, obviously.)

 

Also, because this is something I think of, part of the reason for the thread was that I know RED Card cardholders get 5% off, and was thinking that, if this gave Target credit, it might help ... but the values suck, so whatever.

Man that was such a great deal! I traded in my copies of Sneak King and Big Bumpin' and ended up getting Portal 2 for $9.99 brand spankin' new.


There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Yeah it is a complete joke. It has been around for at LEAST two years now.

 

I actually worked at Target Mobile for a brief time and I don't think a single person ever traded anything in once they heard the values. I would always just have to warn them before hand and then I referred them to Gamestop half the time haha

It doesn't seem too bad, GameStop is about $9 right now, about a $0.15 difference.

 Really? You think you should get more?  The game is sub 20 used.

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.

Yes, but in a separate order. No limits.

Take SEGAMew's tip and use Nextworth's site to get paid via PayPal (read: real money)

I think I'll trade in my Tales of Symphonia Gamecube version for $20 since Ebay prices are plummeting due to the announcement of the hd version and will pick up 2 JustDance 3 copies to add as filler for the 3/5/7 promo at Gamestop to have 7 games total instead of 5.

:xbox: Conker Live and Reloaded $17.38

:xbox: Advent Rising $3.35

:xbox: Breakdown $2.46

:xbox: Psychonauts $3.56

:xbox: Beyond Good and Evil $0.77

:xbox: X-Men Legends (missing artwork) $5.96

:ds: The Rub Rabbits $1.73

:ds: Hotel Dusk $1.22

:ds: Lunar Knights $3.78

 

Could probably get a little more for Conker if I was lucky but it's not exactly crazy uncommon based on the number of copies I can find out there for about that price.  Sadly I held onto Psychonauts and BGE far too long since there was a point where it looked like the prices were just going to keep climbing and now they've tanked to nothing.  Hate to let the last of my Xbox stuff go on one hand, on the other $27 is better than them continuing to sit and collect dust.

 

Edit- Anyone got a referral code they want me to use for NextWorth?  First person to post or PM it, says you get a $10 gift card on the site for getting a friend to trade.

Paypal payment method, do they (paypal) take a percentage when nextworth pays you or is it gifted?

GGG mode: This post is not about video games.

I wouldn't dismiss Target's trade-in program so quickly. Yes, this is a videogame-centric website, but you'd be doing yourself a huge disservice by not keeping your eyes out on their trade-in program as a whole. Trade-ins are processed by Target Mobile, whose phone inventory are owned by Target, which means Target control the prices of the phones, which means if the phones aren't priced lower than if you were to get yours directly from your carrier's store, then they're at the very most the same. And sometimes they run insane promotions regarding their trade-in program. For example, for the first two weeks earlier this month, the iPhone 5 was on sale for $149.99 (from $199.99), while the 4S was $49.99 (from $99.99), both if you're either starting up a new 2-year contract, or if you're eligible for an upgrade. The trade-in promotion running concurrently with the sale was this: If you traded in any phone - ANY PHONE - that still turns on, toward the purchase of either the iPhone 4S or the 5, you get $50 on top of the trade-in value of that phone. This means a person can effectively trade in their hand-me-down mother-effin' flip phone, and just so long as it powers up, get $50 plus the trade-in value of said phone, and walk out of the door with a free iPhone 4s and possibly some remaining funds on a Target giftcard, which is what your trade-in is loaded on. And for those who owned a 4S and wanted to upgrade to a 5 (and if their 4S wasn't damaged in any way), they would get ~$235 as the TIV of their 4S, plus another $50 via the promotion, pay $150 for the 5, and leave with a new phone and over $100 left on their giftcard. Not too shabby in my book. For those who may be interested, while the sales are over with and the phones are back up to their normal prices, the $50 promotion is still going on.

And no, I don't work for Target Mobile.

Tl;dr - While Target Mobile's trade-in program may not be the best route to take for your games, they sometimes run crazy deals for other things, so don't so quickly laugh them off as " a joke".

I considered it, and even made a half-hearted attempt at trying to obtain one, but quickly gave up when I couldn't figure it out in the six minutes that I tried.
