Looking to trade in your old console towards a new one?

Best Buy is apparently giving a minimum $100 gift card for any working 360 or PS3. I have 2 360s, one of which is an OG 20 gig. $100 for that sounds great.

Well crap I didn't even think about trading mine in. I wanted to keep it for all the awesome games last gen. I haven't looked at the link yet, what are the conditions? It just has to be working? Mine's been working perfectly since 2006 lol I wouldn't mind $100 for it.

Do you happen to know what they normally give? I wonder which is the better deal...

Also, do you have to put it towards a pre-order at Gamestop? I don't have a pre-order.

The 90% extra has to be towards an Xbox One preorder, and they're not taking new preorders so you would have had to have one already. Did the same thing for the PS4 preorders last Sunday, friend of mine got $130 for his old 360, not sure what model it was though.

Well, that's like.... your opinion, man.-- The Dude.

Yeah, if BB gives $100 for the old model systems then that will be a way better deal for ya. Hope it works out.

OK, so I went to Best Buy and sure enough they took my launch 20 gig 360 for $100. In order to trade it in you need the console, power brick, AV cable and a controller. They did not do trade in for any extra controllers or my wireless adapter.
