$50 garaunteed when you trade any Xbox one wireless controller towards elite controller.

---one person attempted to trade in multiple controllers, but only one applies---


FAQ - by Rustyra24



How do I find trade values?

Go onto the Gamestop website and search their trade index.


Why does the Trade value say NA or it’s not in their search system?

That game might ring up as 0.03 or 0.02. Some employees may take it but YMMV


These trade-in values suck!

Find some better games or use a trade in deal to your advantage. Deals can be had on $4.00 trade in games with a percent boost.


I want to post my awesome trade find!

Don’t post values from Gamestop’s website. I think this used to be the norm but was abused by guests. Please use spoiler tags for sensitive information.


What is a trade bump?

Gamestop will usually do a trade bump on certain games you just have to watch for it. This almost always gets mentioned in the forum so just wait for it.


If I save my values on the Gamestop app will they honor them the next day?

No they won’t because their POS system rings in whatever the new value currently. Don’t try arguing with the employees because sometimes they know less than you.


Can I trade-in sealed games?

No they only take open games. Please don’t buy new games and then open the game right in front of any employee. It’s lazy and it looks really bad.


Do trade-ins have to have their original case, insert and manual?

They don’t have to have the original material but the original case make life way easier and faster. They just have to scan the barcode unless it is a Walmart game. They have their own barcodes


Do Buy 2 get 1 free coupons work on multiple sets?

They used to but they changed the code. The new code is PUR PRO and only works on one set.


Will they accept my game if it is really beat up?

You will be hit with a refurb fee or they won’t take it at all. Refurb fees are depend on the value of the item. Trading in games in excellent condition creates a nice rapport with employees and sometimes they won’t even look at your games anymore.


Can I trade in multiple copies of the same game?

Yes you can but only 4, per console, per rolling thirty days.


Can I trade in two of the same game at the same time?

I wouldn’t because it makes you look suspicious and you could get banned for it. Based on the store you could possibly do it. If you are trading in like 50 games it might also get overlooked.


What is the trade limit?

You can trade in about $2000 worth of credit and $500 dollars cash in a rolling thirty days. These aren’t Hard limits so you might not get banned if you go a little over these amounts.


What happens if I get banned?

you wont be able to trade for 3 months. Based on multiple bans and the offense you could get banned forever.


Can I use my points if I am banned?

From what I understand you can still use your rewards points.


If they have a good promo should I get trade in a lot and get banned?

I would play the long game so you can trade very month.


What do I do with all this credit?

Buy games and have fun.


What all do I have to trade in for a console trade-in?

Most the time you need a controller, Hdmi input, and the power cord. This goes for most systems.


Should I erase/reset everything on the system?

This can be a catch 22 because it takes forever for them to test the machine. They should erase them after trade in but I don’t know if they do that. I would erase all pertinent information.


Can I trade in a defective/broken console?

Yes but it will be hit with a refurb fee unless they don’t catch what the problem is.


How much does a PowerUp Rewards Pro subscription cost?

It costs $14.99 a year but soon they will have an elite program with better deals.


Can I stack two different trade-in promos?

Sometimes but not very often. One example is using the $5 dollar trade in card provided by some Gamestop employees.


I don’t like my Gamestops employees?

If they do something rude or you know is incorrect. Write it on the survey and usually someone will contact you. Otherwise I try to be civil. No one likes dealing with someone crazy at their job. Please try and have respect. Things work out way better when you have a good rapport with employees just don’t spill the beans about good trades or glitches.

Do I need to do the surveys?
​The surveys really help the store and the employee. It is part of what helps a store be prestige (which could lead to special offers). The employees don't get paid much and have to put up with us, the least we can do is fill out the surveys.

My significant other thinks I am drug dealer?

Just explain to here that this is a hobby and that it is not illegal.

Would be awesome if you could trade in more than one controller towards the elite.

And they still don't have the 50% extra listed on the website or app.

It's like our very own secret, spit-in-the-palm-handshake deal with gamestop.

 

...and a hush and a wink, I know.

I just want that fine print so I can see how long to expect this treatment.

The end date could greatly affect my AWD purchasing.

Should we post that little FAQ I made at the beginning of thread? Might help some folks from asking the same questions

I didn't see anything in the fine print of the ad that says limit 1. Maybe someone can confirm

Don't forget a lot of that info is what caused the original trade thread to be deleted.

That's why I went with the most basic info. The old FAQ went into Boomerangs, Flips, Sheets, etc

Can we use the spoiler tag?

Force 'em to make at least that much effort. Plus I thought that made it search engine hidden.

I'm not trying to say they can't post it.

 

The spoiler tag does remove that portion from search engine's indexing feature so a person would have to come to this website and click on spoiler to see what's hidden there.

Use Google translate to copy it into a foreign language. Then put a note to use Google translate to switch it back. It'll be mildly scrambled. You know like Jimmy Fallon's Google Lyrics.

Anyone willing to traverse that is willing to put the work in to not screwing this up.

Add me to the list of people that want to know if multiple controllers are stackable. I'd gladly trade 3 regular controllers even for an elite...

Rustryra24 FAQ added to OP.

There was only one or two items that might have deserved a spoiler tag, so I didn't want to hide it all. If people want me to I can change it.

Just called my local gamestop. They tried doing a trade of 3 controllers and buying an elite. Only one controller got bumped to the 50 dollar value. So stacking is apparently not allowed by their system on this one. Bummer...

Anyone know how long Battlefield 1 Rev will be on sale for?

 

$40 bucks minus a ten dollar coupon of mine sounds like a solid deal
