You know, i used to get excited for stuff like this,then i remember its gamestop and over the last year their deals have been pretty terrible.

Then I think, oh yeah, I can get Amazon credit.

Then I remember over the last year Amazon Warehouse has been pretty terrible too.


And then...?

Does this come up as a promo or is it just that all trades will be doubled in value? I am asking because I just had an extra 30% trade bonus coupon put into my account and wondered if it would stack.

Give your girlfriend your old 3DS. Sometimes human interaction is more important then GameStop credit.

No trades will be doubled in value.

Besides the console, controller, and power cable, are any other cables required? I lost my headphone piece and charging cable. Thanks.

traded ps4 before i know the headset isn't required although you get additional credit for it but the charging cable not 100% sure. Think it may be ymmv without it especially if you have a strict / annoying employee that doesn't like that your getting a "deal"

 

Pretty sure you need hdmi as well

 

But ya even if the values dip a lil im still going for it. Have to unload ps4 and wii u 32gb

Do you guys think non working consoles will get the 50% tiv boost? I see a broken 360 has an 18 base so I wonder if I gets $27. I wonder about a nonworking wii u deluxe or dsi.

50% applies, but expect to get hit with some refurbished fees

Crap. Under $100 unless you have the 500gb model, which is $120. Better off trading to best buy for $100 for just console and power cord, then get another $15 for the controller while keeping the hdmi.

When I traded my extra 120 gb PS3 towards a PS4 during the deal they were doing two weeks ago when you could get $125 towards the PS4, the base trade in value was only $55 for that PS3 model. I don't know if that helps but you do need the controller, the power cord and a HDMI or AV cable for them to accept the PS3.

Thanks. Is there any way to see the exact refurb fee pricing online or in the app?

The only one i can seem to find is the 360.

I've gotta be that guy, but is the website showing the tradevalue for the systems before or after the 50% increase?

Thanks! Only asked since first few posters weren't sure if the values were going to hold or not, so I wasn't 100% sure if they had just tanked or anything...

Time to get rid of my XL :).

But Best Buy or Amazon credit on the other hand..... I'd take that over human interaction any day! Haha.

There is nothing about this on their website. I also can not find anything about this online...

 

Do we have another "Best Buy 50% Trade In Bonus" situation going on here?

Meh. I've got someone lined up to buy my 3DS XL @ $120 so I'll pass on trading it in.
