SD user "john4769" had success trading in his PS4 for a Switch and then returning it in a separate transaction for credit off a PS4 Pro. Here's the link to his post.

First receipt showing 250 trade in credit for the PS4 and purchase of the Switch, ignore my other trade in items.

Hey guys I have done this 4 times so far since my last few posts! I have acquired 3 ps4 pros and 1 switch. I'm giving the switch as a gift to someone. I have gotten extremely lucky because I went onto craigslist and managed to snag 2 xbox one S's with all accessories for $120 each from 2 seperate sellers!

I want to thank the people who said to ask for a gift receipt because that did the trick to get the full $300 + Tax towards a gamestop giftcard to loop hole the promo!!!! Here is how I did it with images below I will only be discussing how I got 1 of the PS4 PRO's:

Step 1: So I walked into GameStop 1 and traded in one of the 2 xbox one S's I acquired from Craigslist for $120 (I should also point out I lost $30 bucks on this one because I didn't notice the controller was partially cracked but still profited regardless) and asked to put it towards a switch, got $220 credit for it and paid $86.89 and acquired the switch (at this point I went home and forgot to ask for a gift receipt so the following day I spoke to a different guy who gave me a gift receipt, more of the gift receipt in Step 2) :

Step 2:
Took the gift receipt with the switch to another gamestop literally 10 minutes away. The guy at this store noticed I purchased the switch today (since gift receipt was printed today instead of yesterday) and said any reason you want to return it? I said this was a gift and I'm more of a playstation guy and he said "oh ok cool so let's see if we can get you that gift card with full credit back".

He tried scanning the bar code but seemed to be having trouble as if the sku wasn't picking up in the system from the switch and from the receipts bar code. So after a few tries the guy I guess refunded me the gift card manually possibly due to the trouble he's having and I got the card with $325.86 full return!! I think he could have been having trouble because the promo code isn't showing with the gift receipt bar code since I didn't give him the original purchase receipt. But as you can see it's a different gamestop from the location printed on the top of the receipt compared to the first image posted and I received full refund back on gift card as you can see from where it say's RETURN on the receipt. I asked to exchange for a ps4 pro instead of this whole card process but the guy said he was all out so I just asked for the gift card at least to walk out with:

Step 3: Another 10 minutes go by and I'm back to the 1st gamestop and asked the same guy who printed me the gift receipt if he had any ps4 pro's in stock and said he has just a few left and they're selling quick but we just got a shipment in yesterday and don't know if we'll have em later, I kind of hesitated walking back to my car in hopes that he doesn't know I'm scheming but I said F**k it I'm here already and I don't want to lose the chance. Asked the guy for one PS4 Pro and he radioed another guy from the back to bring one up (coincidentally it's the guy who gave me the switch /xbox one S deal the day before). The guy rings it up, I swipe the gift card into the terminal and literally just pay $54.32:

Soooo in conclusion I paid:
-$120 - Xbox One S from craigslist
-$86.89 - For Nintendo switch difference of remaining balance
-$54.32 - for PS4 Pro differene of remaining balance
Total: $261.21 (My other xbox one S that wasn't damaged fetched me $231.21 for another PS4 PRO)

Hope this helps! Good luck!

You are correct. A new revision is coming soon. How do I know? Pure speculation

Here's a suggestion. Let go of the past. Sell the controller bro

This seems to be a hard push towards getting rid of Nintendo Switch stock. I wonder if there is indeed a Switch hardware revision coming down the line.

I can never trade my Xbox One Elite for something decent because they always want the controller with it. I can get another controller I guess but I would have to buy one and that kind of ruins it a bit for me.

Anyone have ideas?

I traded my xbo elite to get the Xbox one S and just traded in a different controller. They treated it as an Xbox OG 1 TB , and I kept the elite controller. You can find used controllers for ~30 on eBay or Craigslist.

and then sell your elite controller separately I'm sure it would go for 80-100 in good condition.

Yes. Current Switches have an unpatchable vulnerability in their bootROM. I suspect Nintendo is preparing a revision of the console without the exploit.
