Yeah, I've got a few devices that I couldn't get 10 cents out of, let alone $10. I'll take it.

Before you scrounge through your old stuff, don't forget this part of the fine print:

 

Not all products are eligible for trade-in.

Hmm let's see if my 8 year old tmobile phone qualifies for $10. that and an old ass VM prepaid phone, if they hold a charge still.

$20 is better than junk sitting around!

"We only want your old phones if we can low ball you a $10 gift card for something worth $100+!"

 

Still worth a shot.

I have about 9 OLD (analog/some digital) mobile phones. I guess I need to take them in individually.

Took in two phones, a camera and a cheap digital Kodak camcorder. $40.

I'm giving this a shot when I leave work today. If I get the $10 I'll be thrilled.

For the most part, the console trade was a flat $100.

At BBY right now trying my luck with a manager for my phone trade in. Guy behind the counter didn't know about promotion and said my phone was worth $0. See how this goes but I'm doubtful. He cited the not all products are eligible language in the tiny text.

I have a bunch of older flip/basic phones in a drawer that I'd love to get rid of for $10 a piece. Let me know how it goes.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Ok so update: talked to mgr and he gave me a very informal store credit for $10 (pays to be nice). However it doesn't look like this promotion is hardcoded into the system or anything, so this is definitely a major YMMV deal (YMWV? Haha)

So short answer: they're probably still not going to take your old phones. Misleading advertising

In my case, the rep said all of my items were technically worth nothing, but he entered each device separately as that somehow allowed him to input the promo. It took about 35 minutes, but I got my $40, so I can't complain.

What is the value on it in the search?

Trades appear to get additional value as long as they have some value.

I might try to get rid of some junky MP3 players I bought at TRU last year for $3. Hopefully they will take them.

Exactly. As long as they have some initial value. The ad makes it sound like if your old device works and the screen is not cracked then bring it in and BBY will give you a guaranteed amount for it, which is not the case.

What all do I need to take in with my 360? Just the unit and the power brick?
