So if this goes live, check your active offers, there's a 10% bonus on trading in and doesn't say it excludes consoles, could be worth a shot!

Just wanted to confirm this promo. I saw this on GSO yesterday at work. You also have to be a PowerUp Rewards member (Basic or Pro.)

I just walked out of the store and the 50% trade bonus is confirmed. It's for Power Up Rewards members only but it can be the basic or premium members.

I haven't been in a GS in several months. Are there any good gift cards besides Amazon in-store?

I  read any article on ign stating Game stop is taking in PS2 systems again. You can get $20 for just the system alone, so does that mean I can get $30 during this promotion regardless of the accessories? 

Does anyone know if you can just trade it in console-only?  Would that qualify as incomplete?  $30 for a $5 PS2 I just picked up from Goodwill last week works for me.

Of course the day after I finally trade in my original 3DS.

 

Let me know when someone trades in a PS2!

It should be working. 2 employees have already confirmed it was in the system.

Hmm $232 for Wii U

$345 for PS4

$101 for 3DS XL

 

all tempting, especially Wii U as I just don't play it much anymore.  If I deactivate my Wii U and buy a new one later, down the road, I can just download all my games (I know my saves are gone but I don't really have any) right?

 

PS4 is also super tempting since I can just take out my 1TB drive, put back the old one, trade in, and buy a new one and reswap drives and be up and running with no change and a new system.  Only bad thing is there are no real discounts going on right now at Best Buy, so it'd be paying $399+tax - 10% movers for a TLOU bundle.  Still, thats basically $45 or so to upgrade to a brand new PS4.  

 

No PS4 deals at Best Buy this sunday either.

It was like that for me when BBY had that 30% trade-in promo and I traded $35 worth of games to them the night before that happened. S***. 

 

With this I might think about parting with my PS2 slim backup console I have.

PS3 Slim 250GB is showing as $60 base, so $90 with the 50% bonus.

So has anyone actually confirmed that gamestop has started taking ps2 ' s for trade? I heard the news awhile back but I haven't seen a report of one being traded in yet.

It's on their trade page, both as complete and incomplete.  I just wanted to know their definition of incomplete before I head over there.  I guess I could call, but the dipshits at my closest store probably don't even know they accept them.

The woman at my local store told me about it unprovoked 2 days ago.

Ugh... need to decide on what to do. I have a white PS4 and a black one. White one is used, but I like how it looks. The black one is new so I get the warranty. I paid way less than their trade values for both. 

 

Also got a 3DS XL that I wanna trade in. 

 

Hopefully the trade values hold for these until Sunday.

What... exactly is the reason for that? Them taking in PS2s again, after such a long hiatus?

Lack of PS1 systems for them to trade in?

The silliest rumor i've heard is that the embargo on Cuba has lifted now, so they want PS2's now. My bet is Gamestop just realized there was still a high demand and money to be made.

Does a used ALBW 3DS XL still have resell value more than what I can get for trading it in at GS?

#89 knorman19  

Posted 06 March 2015 - 04:52 PM

$345 for my secondary ps4. Now to decide if I should trade my xb1 for $240. I never play it and would probably be fine holding out until a possible halo 5 console. Decisions decisions

I always wanted a white ps4 but wasn't able to get one. If i can track one down or even find a used one I'll trade in my blk one.
