GameStop has a promo for $50 extra trade in credit for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch consoles. This is a pretty good value if you want to change/upgrade consoles especially with current console bundles going for $200-350 with a new $60 game included.

Sample values with $50 bonus included:
  • PS4 original 500GB - $160
  • PS4 slim 500GB - $190
  • Xbox One original 500GB - $125
  • Xbox One S 1TB - $150
  • Nintendo Switch original - $200 >Now $175
Weekly Ad [bigcontent.io] (offer is on page 4)

Edit: (12/3) Trade in bonus is still available until 12/7 according to the ad but prices for new consoles are no longer BF prices and most have increased by $100. You can still trade in your old console and get a card with store credit to spend in the future.

This store isn't long for this earth. If you get credit use it quickly...

Note that if attempting to use store credit online for a gift card, even xbox/ps, it will return a rather meaningless error and delete your entire cart. There is no clear policy on trade-in credit online or that was stated in store, but I was able to use it in store for a gaming card. Store credit does not work for netflix or amazon cards in store. This was news to me, so buyer beware.

Serious question, since I haven't been in a GameSpot in forever :

If I save the credit for a next gen console, is there a risk of it being leeched from my account like old Walmart gift cards that get stolen?

Current trade credit is 200 is that including the 50$ extra or no? If so then yeah I suppose and I'm hearing the newer version has about 3 hours of extra battery life.
The $200 includes the $50. The v1 switch has a normal trade-in of $150, the v2 has a normal trade-in of $200.

Trade credit is 200 and that's with the extra 50 already so you'd be paying 100 + tax for the upgrade

If I trade in switch do I have transfer data to new switch in-store? Is there any easy way to move the data from one switch to another?

Go complain. They seem like a fair company that will help and care /s
No I called gamestop and they said once you trade the playstation in its their property, what does that have to do with giving me a coupon for extra 50 credit?

If I trade in my PS4 today, there's 0 guarantee that my local stores will stock up back on the newer PS4 bundles right? So I'd be out a PS4 and just waiting to use my credit
You can use that credit to buy it from gamestop online.

In the past I have traded in for credit and used it on gift cards. Good deal if you wanna just dump a system. Good deal for upgrades too. I got an xbox one s gears bundle for $140, how to go about trading this in without the og xbox missing for 3 weeks haha.

Might trade in my blue forza edition xbox one 1tb. Looks like trade in is $80 + extra $50. Need the 4k so probably just get xbox one x.
