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).


What value Netflix card did you buy? $30, $60, or choose your own?

Went and cleaned out some games I got for super cheap or just games I didn’t want and wouldn’t fetch much more online or locally. I called two GameStop’s, one said it’s only for current gen games, the other said it’s any game, provided it’s in their system. I stranded in PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, 360, X1, PS4, 3DS, DS, and Wii games. 37 games in total for an average of $8.70/game. Not bad at all.

 

Edit: My picture didn't load, I traded in some games, got $322.36 back in trade credit. No idea what to do with that money.

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.

An example of what I'm hoping to do is trade Infamous 1 & 2 which have no trade value separately together as the Infamous Collection. Another example would be trading CoD4: MW and CoD: MW2 for PS3 which have little trade value separately together as the MW1 & MW2 Collection.

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.

 

Took my old Switch in today, got the full $225.

All he did was open the card slot and kickstand to verify nothing was left inside, didn't bother checking to see if it still worked (kickstand) 

Try a different GS if you can.

All the switch games I have saved as trades jumped to 30.00 base... but when you search them they show as 25.00 still... damn it.

The actual website pulls them up as 30 base too apparently. Just not the app.

As a follow up, I received all of my points this morning (elite pro) for both transactions yesterday. (switch purchase then switch trade with $120 netflix, $20 eshop)

Stealth Bump is in the house or a lot of items went up in value. For some reason the app shows more retro games then the website example Spud's Adventure and Megaman 7 is no longer listed so not sure what is going on there.

If anyone tries a switch game today, please confirm it is actually 30 base. I am concerned that part of the new website nonsense is they are putting in the 5.00 bonus across the board. Would be the difference between 35 and 41 with elite.

See if you can find the cover art online and print it out, put both discs in the case with the printed collection cover art and you should be good.

Thecoverproject.net is a good place to start for covers.

Just trying to solve the discrepancy between app and website trade prices. Differences between saved trades happens all the time, this is more unusual.

why the hostility? i don't think it's that crazy to want to know which values are correct....

He's generally hostile. Ignore. There are a lot of crackpot theories on how things work, but sometimes those theories turn into gold, so let's not shoot those ideas down too quickly.

I also would like to know if the $30 base is correct if someone happens to trade at GS today. I went to GS twice yesterday so I’m not motivated to be the guinea pig. thanks!

On today's episode of "Wii Sports Watch," it went up to $7 base. That's damn decent with the $5 bump added.

So for me, the app isn’t 30 base for some titles when you search (ie yoshi) but then when you save the trade updates to the 30 base in your saved trades. Unlike a typical SB, not all top tier switch titles are $30 base (zelda, xeno, pokken, etc)

I’m secretly hoping that $30 base makes a triumphant return now that the majority of elite pro memberships are expiring.

The boom gamble potential of stacking elite pro might still come to fruition.

$51 switch tivs...please come back :)

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.


I bought a 64 controller like a year and half ago, they sent me a perfect condition yellow controller with a tight stick

Has anyone ever had "Awaiting product availability" on their online order? The game is still showing in stock on their site but it's been two days and it hasn't changed status from this.

online orders are probably being scrutinized due to the glitch yesterday

Last night I traded in:

 

Sonic Spinball (Genesis) - $2 base + $5 bonus + $0.20 Elite 10%

Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt (NES) - $2 base + $5 bonus + $0.20 Elite 10%

Jak & Daxter Precursor Legacy (PS2) - $2 base + $5 bonus + $0.20 Elite 10%

GTA: San Andreas (PS2) - $2 base + $5 bonus + $0.20 Elite 10%

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (XB360)  - $2 base + $5 bonus + $0.20 Elite 10%

Watch Dogs (PS4) - $2 base + $5 bonus + $0.20 Elite 10%

 

 

Total is $7.20 per game

 

These are really, really good trade-in deals. I encourage everyone to dig through your retro pile if you haven't already.

Legitimately shocked Guitar Hero III still nets a $2 base.
