Microsoft Xbox 360 - 4GB S - Black (L9V-00001) - $101 (good, no controller)
Model: L9V-00001 SKU: 9267058

Microsoft Xbox 360 - 4GB S - Black (RKB-00001) - $293 (good, no controller)
Model: RKB-00001 SKU: 1162184

Are they scanning the box UPC? Scanning the console? Entering it in manually? Are you guys doing anything special to get them to enter in the RKB-00001 model ($293) instead of the L9V-00001 model ($101)?


The put in the code in the back of the xbox console, my best buy didn't scan anything it was all manual

Was considering trading in my slim xbox, buying the slim e version and pocketing $100 on gift card. But researched the slim E a bit and am pretty disappointed.

 

Can you believe microsoft removed the optical audio output on the slim E model? Hell no.

I know no more turtle beaches but I'm willing to bite the bullet on that one :/

when I traded it in the geek squad guy looked for the numbers on the back of the xbox and the xbox box I brought it in with.  Didn't see him scan it.

I didnt realize there was a difference... any comment on this? When I do the normal process that they would as employees it brings me to the $111 valued one....

 

How can I tell the difference at GS as well?

BTW, to the people talking about the 100 GC vs the 300 GC.

 

Only the original xbox 360 slim has a high trade value, the slim E redesign has 100 GC. There is a visual diference between the two, the slim has lines that sort of curve inward, while the slim E is just completely flat.

 

The 300 GC is for the curved inward model.

Where in store do I take it to for trade-in? Also, can I return it and get the $300 GC and buy $300 worth of stuff and then return it for cash or would they put it on a giftcard?

It worked! Showed up at opening, employees kept rechecking the numbers. My $200 xbox from three years ago sold for $303. Bought a 250gb holiday bundle and new Turtle Beach headphones. Thanks CAG!

They are both S models though?

 

I'm assuming 360s from the bundle pack got saddled with a different sku?

Just checked GS opening time and it also opens up at 11:00AM. I was hoping it open at 10:00 and wait up at bb when it open. Now gotta hope it last at least 2 more hours. No!!

Customer service, and I think back on a gift card.

Well now I have no choice but to go.


I expected you there in front if me but I must have been the first because there were no consoles sitting out on the counter. As I was finishing up a CAG walked in behind me and I just gave him the thumbs up :D

To people who just wanted to upgrade their old console to a brand new one and really want the optical out, this might be the best option. A bit pricier though since its bundled with the kinect. http://www.bestbuy.c...nsole&cp=1&lp=8

On the Best Buy site both are coming up as the S models but the one coming up for $111 and is pictured is really the E model.

Kinda feel bad for getting rid of my xbox :(

 

But then I could go buy the Hoilday 250GB which is larger and has 2 games (which I'd never play) for $270 after tax and still have $23 left over...OR I could save it for the PS4/Xone

Matte ones. They have a built in memory on top if any HDD you put into it.

I just double checked and looks like that's the case. 

Cool, should be easier to trade in the right console then.

another forum is reporting that corporate sent out emails to stores stating not to accept these anymore. Im not sure if I should take the chance now.

Picked up a 4GB at GS and the guy told me to pick out a free game that is $10 or less. Grabbed Halo 4. Didn't bother checking all the TIV of each game assuming it is worth more than other games. So that'll be traded in too :).

Take the chance, the worst that could happen is they say "Sorry we can't give you $300 for it." It's not like they're going to arrest you.

When I got to my BB, they said the system was down(yeah right). The manager was there and knew about the Xbox and said it was a glitch in the system. So I asked if they could check the tradein system and see if it was back up. He said sure and he's like damn it is working now and he took my tradein. $260 GS to $606 BB. Awesome.

When I click on stores participating, all local locations come up, including one that does not do game trade ins...

So do all locations take consoles, etc but only some take games?

My 360 is the s model 4gb but I can't find RKB-00001 anywhere on it. Is there more than 1 version of the black S 4gb?


Type the UPC into best buy regular site.
