Here's the link to the trade in page and if you look above the featured TIVs, you'll see the details of it.

Edit: looks like the deal was moved to the bestbuy.com page. Thought they had removed it for a sec.

See the Best Buy TIV thread--I successfully traded in my launch 360 with this promo earlier this morning. The bonus won't trigger until they total the trade so don't freak when they quote you the ridiculous base value.

So did u get the 100 plus the trade in value? What did u have to give with the 360?

I am also curious if it was $100+ the TIV, and what all you had to give them. Power cords and av hookup I would assume, but was hard drive required? Controller?

No--it boosts the TIV to $100. The only way you're getting more than $100 is if it has a base value higher than that (in which case the promo does nothing for you).

Asking this in both threads:

 

I have an old Pro that I upgraded from 20gb to 60gb but I cant find the 20gb HD now, will they take it with the 60gb or do all pieces need to match up?

Mine has never once checked hard drive size on a trade in. Just a heads up, may be YMMV

Does anyone have experience with trading consoles?. I am trying to stay within the limits if there are restrictions.

here is a snippet from Sd regarding their experience trading in today at bestbuy,

 

"Just traded in a day one 360. They required the power cables, video cables and controller. They are not allowing any RROD and they check all the serial numbers out and they do turn the on so it does take a little time to complete. But getting 100 bucks for an 8 year old system that is a very slick deal."

Well I'm thinking if this arcade system I got from AWD turns on that if they overlook the missing port covers that I'm going to BBY.  Says on the trade page that it can't be cracked (don't see any) and the seal has to be intact as well (have to check that still).

I'm so doing this. I've had an old arcade console sitting in a box for years. Thanks for this OP.

I'm surprised no one asked if they check to see if a console is banned or not. Anyone know?

I have 2 White 360 Pro that I would love to trade-in for $200 and buy a $190 360 Slim BF Bundle (that won't sound like a jet engine).

Interesting. So, do all BB's that accept video game trade ins also accept consoles? Or is it store by store?

Seems like they wouldn't be bright enough to check that.  I'd love to take advantage of this with my banned 360, but that's a pretty big dick move and I don't think I could do it.  I'm just gonna sell it to my brother for $50 once I clear out my digital 360 backlog.

We have 3 360s, one RRoD and 2 working older models. For $100, they can take the extra working one we never use. Shit, I'll bring the RRoD and see what happens. If they take it, all I'm out is a controller for $100 extra. Being able to convert to Amazon cards would be tits up.

 

I don't see this lasting long. Either they get swamped with trade-ins and they pull it or they get swamped with RRoD/banned systems (from employees not checking) and they pull it sooner.


I have gone full Amiibtard. There is no hope for me. I tried to snort a Kirby once. Once.

from sd:

 

"I just traded in two crappy 360s, both with broken seals. They work but they were definitely on their last legs. Two $100 gift cards. I did have to give them one controller, av cables and power bricks. The geek squad dude said the minimum was a power brick, and they were able to ring me up with only one controller.

so basically, if they like you, you could go with console and a power brick. Without the brick they cannot ring it up."

Well hopefully the small crack in the faceplate and missing port doors don't get me denied.

I am new to this whole video game deal thread thing, but this makes me shudder... I guess "sd" is going to ruin this for the rest of us who want to actually trade in a working console. :(

i would act fast, before the promo either gets pull, or a stricter guideline for console trade ins are implemented.

Guy at the Best Buy I just went to said it has to have any controller, power cord, and cables. If you don't give them a controller you get $90.
