It says 150 in the ad too, but the small print says 100

It's a minimum of $100, and then you get a $50 off coupon towards an Xbox One. The systems seem to get a $110 trade in. So it's basically $160 as long as you buy a one. Better for those who want a Xbox One promo as opposed to a PS4 promo from GS.

Ya, I bet Microsoft is selling them cheaper to best buy so they can run promotions like this to boost xbox one sales. I just can't consider selling my 360 because the xbox one isn't backwards compatible

According to the fine print, it has to be either a PS3 slim model or a "Xbox 360 250 gb model".

And they're still giving away free games if you have Live Gold.  Regardless of the promotions, I don't think I'll trade in my 360 until a good portion of my friends have fully gone next gen and I'm ready to call it quits on the 360.  I don't see that happening this year at all.  Maybe mid-2015...?

Sooo a little on-topic, a little off-topic... does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do with two busted (RROD, seals broken) fat 360s that I've been sitting on since they croaked a couple years ago?

Craigslist is uber-sketchy around here--like many places, I assume--so that's not an option. Ebay's out since shipping will kill any money someone's willing to give me for them. And really, I'm about ready to just hand them into one of those Electronic Recycling drives.

Not too bad of a deal, but I don';t understand why someone would abandon last gen this early. Still have a good 2ish years before both systems stop getting exclusive games (mainly the PS3) and neither the PS4 or X1 are backwards with your older games. Also: Dat backlog.


It's just that simple.

Bestbuy was giving $100 for ANY working 360 a while back.   Some said they never checked to see it was working, others said they just wanted to see it turn on.   If you could get these to work even temporarily you could be sitting on something if they do this promo again.

 

If they're broken, they're not really worth anything unless they're easily fixable.

Well, they power on but certainly they don't "work" by the base definition. I bought them off ebay during the big "fixing RROD is EZ!" boom from quite a few years ago--when the first one worked for 7 months right out of the box, I just lost all motivation to do anything with them beyond that. /coolstorybro

I'm not even looking to get money out of them, I would just like to unload them. I guess Electromic Recycling Day it is.

Best buy will take electronics for recycling if you want to ditch them. Maybe by some miracle it works that day and you can get a $50 coupon off an Xbox one. Then you can sell the coupon or give it away for good karma.

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.

Myabe I should try this. Mine is a 360 S with a 120GB HD I put in myself from an older 360.

Someone please report back how much you get without the controller. If it's just $90 I'd rather just keep the controller.

Well time to see if anyone is selling a cheap PS3 slim.



First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Which one is the S model? Is that the 2 tone Xbox One looking one?

The S model is the first redesign that everyone started calling the slim right away

I traded in a fat 250gb with one wireless controller for $110, then got the coupon for $50 for the Xbox One.  As stated above, my store did not even test the unit, just looked to make sure everything was there and the system looked nice enough to put it as "good condition".

So they wouldn't even know that mine wasn't a 250gb right? hehe

Can multiple $50 off coupons be used for a xbox one? Will I be able to return the xbox for a full refund?

I have a 320GB (i think its larger) - if I give that with my E 4GB model, there shouldn't be any problems, right?

I hope not.  I have a fat arcade that I added the 250GB hard drive.  It's the same damn thing!

They pay $10 per controller, no limit.

I just read through the fine print, and for the $50 is this really ANY working console?  I've got 3 Atari 2600's.  Could probably part with one of those bad boys.  I'll even toss in a copy of E.T.  I hear it's pretty good.

Would the USPS moving coupon work in conjunction with this?

Might be YMMV but a SlickDealer mentioned in their thread that they were able to stack it.  If so, that'd be the tits!   :D/

 

Edit: I've asked for clarification about it on their forums.
