You get a coupon for a Samsung 9 Pro as well.

 

It must work and not have damage (water or cracks). Needs to turn on. This promotion ends 7/15. 1 laptop per person.

 

Click the link above to make sure your laptop qualifies. I have a tiny ancient notebook with a WMT processor. BB won't give me anything because of the processor.

It is better to donate than to be subjugated to them.

What if I have a gaming trade ban? Will that affect this?

The link in OP isn't saying anything about a promo on my end (using FIrefox)

The laptop needs to turn on with only battery power and get into windows.  They did not check if the laptop charged and worked with the AC adapter.  That's the test my store did last I did the trade, but for $50 at the time.

My old Gateway laptop from 2008 with Vista, a Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB ram, some dents and a scratch on the screen appears to qualify for the $75 GC. I rated it "poor", which appears to be the rating it gets if it just powers up.

I'm in the market for a new laptop (obviously), so I'll have to stop by soon and see if I can cash in on the POS I was just going to throw away soon anyway.

Apparently the old Compaq 2100 Presario sitting in my basement doesn't qualify. Bummer.

*edit*
If I install Windows 7 on it they will take it. Haha

I still have an old ass Pentium III IBM Thinkpad that has been sitting in a bag under my desk for like the past decade, lol. Would they consider that Lenovo, or is it going to qualify as "other brand"? That seems to be the difference in whether or not I have to install Windows 7 on the thing.

where does it say this on the best buy website I can't find anything but iPad and macbook deals under trade in. I like to bring proof with me to BB as sometimes they are dumb.

 

I found it finally.

Just a heads up, you can trade chromebooks in and they qualify. I've got at least one of those left I got for like $25 after some rebates and crap.

Unfortunately I've got two sitting around. But one is cracked from my kid stepping on it(will try anyways) and I can't get the other one to charge from the power cord. Will try my old tablet pc with 8.1 on it too.

What's the best way to wipe a Windows PC for trade in? Is DBAN overkill?

Damn I just found out I got the same problem with my battery not charging.  The easiest way to fix this is buying a new generic battery from Amazon.

I have 3 old laptops, my wife and 2 adult kids are en route to try this on. I had back surgery so I'm recovering and had to stay. An extra $225 for some old junk would be nice

I would love to see GameStops numbers from this weekend. I imagine it's one of the most actI've weekends with possible exceptions like Christmas, BF, etc. Also I find it funny that a bunch of people are saying GS fixed the exploit blah blah when all that's happening is stealth bump is over. Sure a bunch of values went lower than usual but doesn't that make sense? People were trading in a few of the top value titles multiple times.
Anyway I got my points this morning and I have enough credit and paid off preorders to keep me gaming until next spring / summer.



Ummm.... wrong topic bro.
