Dafuq! What were you trading in that took that long? Longest a console trade took me was like 15 minutes. Did you not format the PS3 or something?

It was a ton of old games that needed to be typed manually on the computer. But the lady literally had to hunt and peck the keyboard along with having super long nails. Didn't help that she didn't know half the consoles some games were from, like N64, GBA, etc. So she had to keep asking me what something is. I'm gonna assume she had to learn things that day. 

The PS3 part of the trade only took like 5 minutes, I did format it and made it all convenient for them to try it on the test kit.
But typing in Final Fantasy VII in 4 different ways before giving up and giving it back to me took over 5 minutes. So imagine that x 50 items give or take. (not counting items that just needed to be scanned)

To elaborate on what Hellacious recommended.  You want to trade in all your games and extra accessories in the first transaction.  At this time you buy the $10 PSN card.  This will trigger the 40% bump (if you are elite pro).  You will pay for and keep the $10 PSN card, but will get the rest of the value on a GameStop trade/gift card.  You can use that credit on the next purchase.  This probably is only worth the extra hassle if the base value of this trade is greater than $50.  At that point the $10 PSN card becomes free (thx to the extra 20% bump) and anything over that gets you 20% more in trade credit to use on the next purchase.


Do the PS3 system trade and PS4 purchase on the second trade, using the trade credit from the first.


In the end you'll have the $10 PSN card and the PS4 pro.

Thank man!

So I told the gamestop employee this is what I want to do.
But she instead wanted to do all of it in 1 transaction and it seems to have worked fine that way. The PS3 trade in got bumped into 80 after ringing in a ps4 pro. And after ringing in a $10 psn code, the trade total was bumped up by 20% on everything that wasn't the ps3.... I'm gonna assume the advertised 40% is including the 20% you already get with Elite right?

Bit disappointing, but at least I got the stuff I wanted.  :bouncy:  and I got a lot

She took over 4 hours to finish helping me without helping anyone else...typing with long nails looks annoying...she also kept stepping out and left me standing there couple times without helping other customers.

I remember trading in a bigger bulk half a yr ago, leaving in <2 hrs, and the dude was working by himself while helping other customers. Baffled if I should be happy with the service or not

You only need to grab a $10 or whatever in the xbl/sony card and the rest will be trade credit.
You do get the boost for the entire transaction, not just what goes towards the currency card.

So if I say im also purchasing a $10 psn card with a ps4 pro, ill get the 40% boost is what your saying?
Sorry but all this just is a bit confusing

You can always do separate transactions. Do the games first and then the system second. Use the credit from the first trade of just games to put towards the new system on the second transaction.

I guess ill just do this, thanks for the tip.
But I dont understand how you can put xbl/sony cards into a gamestop gift card. Do they allow that?
