Where did you find this information?
My GM just told us. (I work at Best Buy.)

I can confirm it's still active. I literally JUST did a trade-in of two laptops two minutes ago.
People posting on the SlickDeals thread on this deal are reporting Best Buy might have ended this promotion early. :-/

I haven't had any customers do that yet, but if I'm not mistaken, we still just process it manually.
Has anyone finished the trade in online and brought it to the store? There's an add to basket at the bottom which leads you to an information form that you can fill out and just bring it to the store already prepared.

You'll get $75 each. They promotion bumps up whatever the trade-in value by whatever amount it takes to get it to $75. So for two if them, you'll get a giftcard for $150.
I completely forgot I have two old hp netbooks I never use. According to the trade in link, they each have a $50 value. Are you saying I should most likely get $125 each?
The trade in page has some weird math saying "Your trade in value = $50, Your Promotional Value = $25, Your total value = $75"

The battery and lack of charger has no impact on the promotion UNLESS it disqualifies the laptop from trade-in entirely. As long as it still has some sort of value after selecting "No" on the charger option, it will still bump it up to $75.00.
Traded in 3 laptops yesterday:
First one was a Lenovo with an i3 intel CPU and 4GB or RAM, in decent shape, got about $80 from it
Second one, which surprised me, was a Samsung with similar specs, only issue was that it was a bit beat up but with no cracks on the screen with a dead battery, and it said that i got $11 something for it. He's excuse was that Samsung laptops don't get much trade in value, which i thing is BS, The third and last was an old netbook Dell with an Atom CPU and 2GB, had a dead battery and track pad, and i got around $50 for it.
Overall i was gonna get around $153 for all of them, but at the end the guy said that the total was $230! I tried my best to not show how surprised i was. I looked at the paper work and the Samsung got a nice boost at the end with the small Dell netbook with the promotion that was going on.
So even if the guy said that you're getting less than $75, wait until hes done and the system will give you the promo. He said that not having the charger and the battery is dead might had lowered the value even more, not sure if that is true.
I can try to upload the paper work that shows this later today if anyone needs it.

If they power it on and the screen doesn't work, I can all but guarantee it won't be accepted.
So by power on do they check to see if the screen lights up and shows a boot logo, or is just the fan and led blinking good enough?

Yeah, I wasn't questioning his honesty either. I just swore I saw it on there before when doing price matches. I'll check tomorrow, because I may be able to do an adjustment over the phone, in which case I'll process it for you if you still bought it.
I didn't think he was lying. I did feel one of three managers should've said it was okay though.
The Gamestop is like 300 yards away. So it's definitely a local competitor.
Strange it's not on the list.
