Gamestop Trade in Value Estimate?

#1Tomcat94Posted 11/17/2013 9:02:22 AM
With the 90% Trade bonus on any system traded in towards purchase of an Xbox One, what do you believe I will receive for this?

- 250GB Xbox 360 E Console (The newest model, the one that resembles Xbox One)
- 250GB PS3 Super Slim Console

Gamestop would have to tell you but my estimate would be about $350 with 90% deal.

amazon trade in credit is about that. for gamestop divide that in half and subtract $50 and you get a close estimate.

According to the above, you would get $80 for the S model of X360, and $100 for the 500GB PS3.

Because you have a better X360 and a lower end PS3, I would assume they cancel out, but you can never know with GS. So to be safe I say for the lower end PS3 you would get $80 and $80 for the X360 despite the fact that its new. That makes $160 total, and with a 90% bonus on that, it comes out to 1.9*(100+60) = 190 + 114 = $304

Keep in mind this is without the controllers, which would get you about $25, and with an extra 30% trade in credit (because its going toward a new console, and because the 90% bonus probably does not apply to controllers) it would equate to $32.5.

This would bring your new total to about $336

You might want to check Best Buy as well. They have a promotion going where you get a minimum of $100 for your console. Yesterday I did it with my launch 20 gig and got $100. I'd guess a 250gig s would be worth more.

You are lucky. I tried the same thing with my best buy and they didn't honor it. I was stuck there an hour arguing to no avail. I wound up getting $50 credit at Gamestop with a 5 minute wait. I'll never attempt to trade anything in at Best Buy again. They seemed clueless to me.

That sucks. Mine took it no problem. They didn't even plug it in to see if it worked (it did though). The funny thing too was that the console itself was only worth $10, but then I got a $90 promotional credit to bump it up to $100.
