I'd like to reiterate that if you have last Gen stuff, you should definitely dump it now. Especially PS3 and 360. I don't think we're gonna see many bumps for those two consoles in particular in the coming months. Some of the Wii games are crazy high too. WiiU games seem to be at an all time low sadly.

If I renew elite is the b2g1 good for accessories too or just games

I believe accessories should work.  I used mine on two switch games and a pro controller, but that was months ago.

Definitely true on the Wii games. I picked up this Wii bundle off of Facebook a couple days ago for $35 and four games alone got me almost $100 in credit.

Yeah I don’t even have a ps3 anymore but have some games sitting in my room. They’re giving almost $30 for msg legacy collection if you’re elite pro and almost $20 for resistance collection

I strongly advise ebay if you have resistance collection most especially if still sealed

Does GS require Wiimotes include the wrist strap?  I've got a couple of pre-Motion Plus Wiimotes in good shape, but sans strap.

I traded in 3 today without them. Thank you to whoever it was that mentioned wii accessory values. Yet another inspiration story about buying cheap on Craigslist and trading in for more than I paid.

This. Have 14 games, 3/4 of which are "big" titles, and even those have pathetic TIV's.

damn i have a ton of wii accessories but I don't know how much Gamestop credit I really want. I'm at $200. I guess I could get enough to buy an PS4 Pro or something and resell it to get my cash out.

 

Any suggestions for getting cash out of GS credit, without losing too much?

Broadly speaking: mint condition collectibles and complete in box highly acclaimed games.

If you’re PUR Pro, buying first party switch games will almost always net you the full amount back. Also the NES classics will fetch the majority of their money back. I bought one with credit and resold it for $50 locally within about an hour of posting on Facebook.

Ah, now I know why I try to avoid craigslist, facebook, etc.; buyer was triple texting me, being generally annoying, and asking that I pretty much deliver it.

I would say switch games... but even those I've had some trouble moving recently. Consoles are pretty hard to sell at cost, and I don't think it's worth it since most people lowball big time and I wouldn't be surprised if you got flooded with $150-$250 offers for a brand new PS4 Pro.

I was selling a pro a couple months ago and I was regularly getting offers for like $200, and requests to trade for knives and hand guns. -_-

I only suggested the console so I could get it over with in one fell swoop.  But yeah, the lowballers kill me.  Especially when I just listed something 5 minutes ago. If you want to lowball, at least wait until its sat there for a couple days.

Hey, do you guys know if the 70% extra trade-in bonus thing works *only* towards pre-owned games, or if I can cheese it by grabbing a super cheap pre-owned DS game and use the rest of the trade-in value for whatever?

You only need to have a pre-owned game rung up with the trade-in. Any amount should work.

Did you have a really good guess or was it known that this is coming up? Website says cash same as credit 7/23 to 8/12.

Was the last cash = credit promo applying to accessories also?  If so, it'd be good to wait until next week's promotion.  I'm in CA so I'm looking at 70% potentially for spare controllers.
