When trading a console in, does the controller need to be first party or can I trade a third party one in?


First

Why ask about the bump? Just say you want to add $5 to your preorder and trade in games. Let the system work.

Ordered the Zelda Game & Watch. My game boy came with Links Awakening and it’s my favorite Zelda game. Seems like one of the better uses of credit.

This is 100% the way to do it.  Walking with the games in a bag and just say "I want to put $5 on my existing preorder".  After they add that and you see the line item on the checkout terminal, say "I'd also like to trade these in."  Boom, easy as pie. 

 

Watch that terminal like a hawk when they scan stuff in though to make sure you're getting the right prices/bumps.

I tried to PO this today and it wasn't in their system yet. Ended up doing a temp PO on Doki Doki. Got the bonus on 18 low tier titles, and put the remaining balance on a TC.


That's what I was afraid of, thanks.

Fallout 76 trades in for $5.50 up to $10.50 with the bump? That's hilarious considering I put it in as garbage filler for a deal to get some games I actually wanted a couple years ago.

I'm seeing the same. Bummer.



Buy New get used 30% or 50% is working again. Picked up Trails of Cold Steel IV and Sakuna New and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 used. Hopefully the New games dont come "new", but not holding my breath.

Which titles did you trade? Need some ideas when I go out sourcing.

Is it possible to do a return/rebuy? I wanted to trade my Xbox one X for the series X but I didn’t have time to pack my Xbox up. I was able to buy the series X though. If it’s possible, do I need to bring the Xbox series X back sealed? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

They can definitely do it, YMMV obviously. I have had employees in the past be cool with not having the system there, but technically they told me they're supposed to have it because they have to run the return first and technically you could just walk out at that point and no go forward with the trade and re buy and try to screw them. But I think of you have good report and explain the situation they will totally understand and do it for you.

Don’t hold your breath on trails 4 coming new, I think they opened every copy just for fun.

Picked up a Series S and I planned on doing the same thing. First store I went in said No it would need to be here now to do it. Second store I went in said yeah they would do it just bring in receipt. So YMMV.

 

 

 

 

On the trade in page there is a 50% boost on trades towards New PC Accessories. Does anybody know what is included in that?

Called my local GS just now, they don't show the special edition of Dread in the system. Anyone have any luck with this today?

My store has a new SL and they were under the impression the +$50 promo for systems was not working so they manually bumped my Xbox One S 500GB from $125 to $175 way before plugging in the X to the order, went through and traded tons of games in, pre-ordered some stuff, and etc etc. I just checked the receipt and the promo did work, so I got $225. However, it seems the 30% towards Mario Golf did not work in combination with the +$5, so I only ended up with a free $20 and change.

Of course the 30% and $5 bonus didn't stack. You get the better of the two deals. Once the TIV is above $16.67, 30% is better.

I am aware of this. By combination I did not mean stack. The 30% games were all Wii/360/3DS games or PS4/X1 games worth less than $5. All of the games that got the +$5 bump were PS4/XB1 games worth more than $5. In my experience the trade promos should work together on the same transaction (but not stack, obviously) and someone a page or so ago mentioned that they did work together. I am stating my experience as an anecdote to the opposite for people to be aware of.

I figured something like this would occurred. That's why I pre ordered a game that's not apart of the 30% promo. so I can get the better +5 promotion. Also never trust GS system to do the right thing, always try to make it as simple as possible even if you have to do multiple transactions.

Which titles did you trade? Need some ideas when I go out sourcing.

XB1: Gears Tactics, Halo: MCC, Sims 4

Switch: Poi, Moving out, Civilization 4

PS4: Power rangers, fallout 76, sw: squadrons, ufc2 (4base, usually way lower), one piece burning blood, GT: Sport & GR: breakpoint

So what games have been confirmed to work with the $5 bump? I saw that Battlefield 2042 and Mario Golf work. Can't quite recall the other games that work.

I was told this yesterday in store when I renewed as well. I'll confirm if/when I get the points.
