I'm sure most are already aware but for some reason I have seen a thread for this trade in promo.

Details:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/promo/xbox-one-s

In store only. Trade in any working Xbox One or PS4 console and receive a minimum of $125 in Best Buy gift cards. Not available in all locations and some stores may have additional limitations. Console must include AC adapter/power cord, power on, and not be damaged or have its warranty seal broken to be considered working. Condition, documentation and accessories may affect value. Not compatible with other trade-in offers. You are required to agree to the terms and conditions. No dealers. Limit of 1 trade per person. 7/31 - 8/6

AFAIK you will get $125 in Best Buy gift cards. No coupons to apply towards new console. This is for the console only, no controller required. Each controller is $17 if you trade it in. Gamestop is offering $22 ($25 PUR) for the controller so that may be a better route. Also note that is only worthwhile if you're trading in the 500GB Xbox One console.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

A used Xbox One/PS4 goes for more than $125, so how is this a deal?

If they give you a $125 in gift cards then you won't need to use it towards a new console. Still waiting for someone who has done the deal to verify.

Just traded my xbox one. Value was $104 but the promotion gave me additional $21 hence the $125 minimum trade in.

Kept my controller.

Theres been a bunch of insane deals lately for new Xbox Ones, such as $250 + 2 controllers + $50 GC + game (Best Buy). Or $250 + $100 GC (Fry's).

Remember with this trade promo, the $125 is for the console only. Trade in your controller you can get close to $150. I'm sure you will get a little more on CL for a 500GB + controller, but not much more. Well, unless you get lucky and find some ignorant sucker to sell to. With that said, this deal is not for everyone since you will end up with $150 in Best Buy GC and not cash. CL might be the better route if you have the patience and dont mind the hassle.

Did they give you $125 in GC?

I'm not sure if you get more for the 1TB console.

Another improvement that gets overlooked is the new console supposedly has a better wireless signal (between the console and controller). Lots of people, myself included, have had issues with the controller losing connection to the console. This usually only affects those who have their consoles inside a cabinet or in my situation, in another room. I never had this issue with the 360 which is located in the same area.

It was confirmed last week that they use a smaller SOC fabrication, hence less power on similar processes.

$100 trade in value at GameStop starting in July for the 1TB Xbox One.

$150 trade in value for the 1TB Xbox One from Amazon in July.

Craigslist average is $220 for 1TB in July.

Didn't think this is a deal. Even with Controller it's around $150, while an average in eBay is $260 (net ~$220 after fee+ship). You can use checkaflip as a proof.

Honestly I will go and pay anyone who willing to sell me a PS4 for $125 (no need controller) laugh out loud.

They need to throw in a 50 dollar coupon toward S to make this a good deal.

Glad I unloaded my system for $250 a couple months before the S was announced. Still not sure if I'm going to get the S or Scorpio since so many games are on Windows 10 and Neo might have UHD blu-ray, though. But I would miss out on Halo MCC, Halo 5, Rare Replay, and Sunset Overdrive.

Only worth it if you have a 500GB Xbox One. PS4 is not worth trade in.
