So i I trade in the old switch do I have to buy the new one as part of the deal?

Or can I hold on to the $225 for later when switch price has some sort of promo?

Would you all recommend recommending upgrading from old to new for basically $75 pus tax at this time?

NO.
The switch is $200, the $25 bonus says *nothing* about it must be used towards anything. Just in store credit.

If the employee says anything else, have them read it aloud to you... it s just normal credit no purchase requirements.
I just did this yesterday after the Gs girl thought the same, she read it back and realized she was mistaken.

Just a friendly reminder to watch what games they enter into the system when trading them in.

 

I traded 4 Wii Sports during the last SB, and traded in a Wii Sports Resort today that they mistakenly put in as Wii Sports.  Luckily I caught it and made them fix it or else it could have resulted in a ban for me.

For me it's a value call. I'm a bit on the fence myself, ultimately siding with not upgrading and just carrying a backup battery / charger. Obvious downside is the original model switch may go down in trade value because of the newer model (ala PS4 OG vs Slim)

I took the plunge and bought the switch revision, brought it home, and transferred my user/save data from my old switch.

 

Afterwards, I took the old switch back to GS for trade. As an aside, while trading in my switch (for $225 trade credit) I was able to pickup $120 in Netflix cards and $20 in eShop cards using trade credit from the switch (same transaction).

Tried trading in Splinter Cell: double agent today at my local store. Didn't automatically get the $5 bump, so I held onto it. Retro games may not work anymore. The X360 and PS3 games worked fine though. Going to try another store tomorrow and see if they'll manually add on the $5 for me. Good luck out there!

Odd.  I traded in 8 retro games (PS1, PS2, GC, NES) about two hours ago and they all got the bump automatically.

The $10 codes are dumb. Last time they worked on PSN, XBL, eshop cards. This time, they only work on physical items it seems. Just going to try to convert the three that I have into $7.50 credit with that $5 trade-in bonus.

 

Really, what would I buy for $10 from GS when they have 4 for $20 sales all the time? Honestly asking to see what everyone is doing with their own.

Sorry, missed the discussion about the new website and everyone is now talking about the glitches. Are the TiV on the app or website accurate? The website is showing much lower values for me.

The App was 100% accurate for my 24 games I traded today.  I think the website is having issues for some people.

Am I stupid or does gamestop not list a trade value for a New 3DS XL? I have the black Pokemon sun/moon edition.

Has anybody attempted to trade separate games as a collection/bundle to maximize trade potential with the bonus? I thought about trying to with some PS3 and 360 games, don't want to come off as scummy though.

What would an example of this be? I traded MGS2 and MGS3 from my PS2 collection separately. You don’t come off as scummy because you are taking advantage of the promotion that they are offering.

Does the 5 dollar bonus also count towards accessories, such as controllers?

Ok so took my launch day switch in for a trade, the kickstand won't stay closed, it's loose.

 

They want to cut $50 off the trade in - ugh - i left.

 

i guess i'll have to see if there is a easy fix, am tempted to just put tape behind it so it stays closed.

I would try a different location if possible. Some stores in my area are crazy about certain things but other stores just pass things through without raising an eyebrow

yeah GC version. I'll report back after I try a different store tomorrow. The person who rang me up today did put some sort of retro refurb fee for $0.00 though. Maybe that's why, we'll see.

They tag that on all retro trades as it's the protocol so they know to send them to the warehouse.

My eyes have been opened because I assumed they did not, like BB doesn't allow but I was wrong. Used some of my credit on a $50 PSN card tonight and have to visit a store closer to work tomorrow since they didn't have Starbucks GCs. IDK why I never thought it worked all these years but damn, the possibilities now. . .

Anyone have experience with used controllers from gamestop?

 

Tempted to buy some N64 controllers for my WII U. Going to do more research and see if an adapter exist for Wii/WiiU.

Some games are harder to play with non-original layout.
