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.

The $200 includes the $50. The v1 switch has a normal trade-in of $150, the v2 has a normal trade-in of $200.
Cool, so if I cash in with the bonus and trade in mariokart, buy the Black Friday bundle with mk8 I could essentially walk out with the upgraded switch for 77$ +tax. Smilie thanks!

Any accessories need to be brought as well? Or just system, controller, and power cord?

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.
Gamestop no longer allows you to use trade credit/ giftcard to buy other giftcards except for playstation/xbox/nintendo online credits.

I've got an original Xbox One that I should probably trade in. It's just collecting dust right now. Don't see an expiration date on the bonus though.

Do you have to include remote for full trade credit?

FYI the MK8 switch bundle has the v1 console. Nintendo is using it to get rid of old stock.

Playstation Pro TIV is 175$ right now. With the +50$ Value it would be 225$. So it will cost me 75$ to upgrade from a launch Pro to a Death Stranding Pro. Right now on Craigslist, barely used pro's are going for 175$ in my area and nobody wants them.

The weekly ad is for 12/1-12/7 unless otherwise stated and this specific offer says it starts 12/2 so I assume it's good until 12/7 but no idea if they've pulled these offers early before.

Not sure if this is worth it for xbox one 500GB. Trade in value of 125, while a new xbox one S is 200. Is it worth the $75 premium for the S?
