It's been over a year since I last traded in a game through Walmart's program; I just checked several games, including some very new titles, and am being met with a trade-in value of one cent for every game I type in.

 

Is this just a weird hiccup, or did I miss this program's discontinuation at some point in the last year or so?

The values changed to one cent a few weeks ago. Around 2 months ago, many old games were removed from the trade in database, then values got lowered to $0.05 for older games that still could be traded in then the change to one cent. It's a shame because they were one of the few places to take last gen games with reasonable trade in values.

Well, damn.

 

I'll always have fond memories of my purchase of the PSVR launch bundle at Walmart, as the gal ringing up the sale was as delighted as I was watching the total price plummet, one trade-in printout at a time. I ended up buying that sucker for less than half price that day.

 

Thanks for the info, YoshiFan.
