So looked at my receipt and something feels off.

Traded in 360 controller, it came out as "Big Xbox Controller". I can understand that.

Traded in PS3 controller, but it was listed as "PS3 wired", not wireless. Only got like $3 for it.

Base trade in was $13, refurb fee is usually like $5.

 

I honestly just wanted to get rid of it, so not a big deal, but still feels I deserved extra couple $ lol.

They screwed you. They totally picked the wrong items for trade in.

As a general rule of thumb for anyone doing trades ins, always know the values of the items you are trading in before even walking into the store. I always write down the trade in values on a piece of paper, to make sure they match up with the values they are giving me. That way they don't screw you over with BS values.

If it came up wired then they traded it as the wired PS3 controller that's worth like 4 bucks.

Yeah, it was $4 and then took $1 off.

Didn't really pay much for it, but still feel robbed.

I feel the guy didn't know what he was doing, took him a while to figure which controller it was on the system.

Usually do that, but had a bunch of broken controllers I needed to get off my hands.

Got $30 in credit, could have had more, but the lot was $40. So mostly made my money back with 4 controllers.

Got to be more careful, I just assumed they had it handled. Never had issues before with trade ins.

Hope that you didn't trade all in at the same time because you might be banned from trading in now. Someone refresh my memory, how many controllers are you allowed to trade in before being banned? I remember a few people getting banned for trading in too many controllers of the same type (ex. 2 DS4s in same transaction).

I got screwed hard...

360 controller listed at $12 and DS3 also listed $15.

That's base value, not going back to that gamestop.

 

Not too sure about refurb fee as it was missing battery, as guy wouldn't take my 360 controller with thumb sticks peeled. Saying I wouldn't get anything after refurb fee.

You can trade up to 4 of any SKU/item within a rolling 30-day window. For accessories, you are allowed to trade them all in at the same time. No need to go to another store.

You won't get banned.

Do you still need to already have it on your account or can anyone get it? If it doesn’t make the PS4 more valuable I’ll most likely just factory reset and trade it in. Can you use the trade in bonus on multiple system trade ins?


You need to have it on your account already, then connect to vpn and you can download it. Without VPN, the download will not work.

Hey guys is the PRO and Elite 10%/20% off used discount no longer valid in stores?

My friend told me the discount wasn't coming off online when doing the B2G1 used promo.

It isn’t valid for the B2G1 online, for whatever reason. Otherwise it works like normal.

What's the regular trade in value for a PS4, and are there any deals to upgrade to a PRO? (Specifically death stranding edition)

 

i never really go to gamestop so have no idea, would appreciate the help

Only thing I see on there is that it's not stacking with the B2G1.

Mario and Sonic Olympic Games has $10 rewards cash. Hopefully it’s a G2L.

You can just return the game after you get the rewards cash if it's not a G2L. You get to keep the rewards cash as long as you don't get a junior detective.

Umm...no.

when you trade in a console, what do you have to include?

if i traded in a ps4 would i have to include the hdmi cable, power cable, and controller?

and does it matter what controller? would rather not give them a dualshock 4

You’d have to give them a controller that goes with the console. Not much use in trading in a PS4 with a wii remote.

I haven't seen this posted yet - it looks like GS further dropped the in-store "New" price for WarioWare Gold (3DS). It is now $19.97. It's out of stock online, but plenty of stores seem to still have it for pickup.

This is a fantastic game and one of my favorites for the 3DS. I bought it during launch week for full price and was satisfied. At $20, it's a no-brainer.

No, it has to be a 1st party Dual Shock 4.   If you take it with one of those 3rd party ones, they'll either reject the trade-in or hit you with a refurb fee for a Dual Shock 4 controller.
