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.

Gamestop no longer allows you to use trade credit/ giftcard to buy other giftcards except for playstation/xbox/nintendo online credits.
Is this true for all gift cards? I know they did not allow amazon/visa gift cards in the past but what about netflix/uber/etc type gift cards?

Does anyone know if I need to include the controller?
Yeah you do. I'm trying to find out if I need to include the Kinect and HDMI cables from my launch day Xbox one.

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?
I think I'm going to do it. Is the $199 price going to go back up after today though?

Will do this next year when the new XBOX Scarlett and PS5 are announced..right now not worth trading anything in
Does trade in value really go up when new systems are announced? You'd figure it would be the opposite with everyone dumping their old systems to get the new one.

Plus extra $5 trade on any game over $2 I see
Where do you see that? I looked all over the GameStop website and didn't see it.

I have both. I like the S a lot better because it looks better and takes up less space. Uses less energy too so would probably save you money on electricity in the long run.

I feel blind but I don't see anywhere that mentions the bonus 50$. Could it possibly be location dependent?

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.
Got it, thanks!

I'll go in some time this week.

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!
The Mario kart bundle is the older switch. I would recommend getting the standalone v2 switch, wait for that $25 giftcard to come in with the promo deal and then use that to buy Mario Kart.
