GameStop has a promo for $50 extra trade in credit for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch consoles until 12/14. This is a pretty good value if you want to change/upgrade consoles especially with current Xbox One bundles available for $250-350 with a 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.

Edit: (12/8) The offer is shown in this week's ad so it's available until at least 12/14. Xbox One consoles are on sale this week.

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.

I also saw that they are selling used original Xbox One consoles for $99.99. The trade in for that console is worth $125 so there might be room for arbitrage if you're into that sort of thing?

Like the stock market, timing is everything Smilie
Edit: maybe I should just sell the One S Jedi bundle I just picked up after $60 Kohl's cash + $10 YES + $22 total in cash backs and sell the game and console separately to make little money, haha.

This is messed up! I just traded in my ps4 for 110 bucks last Wednesday! I was hopping for this deal black friday but thought it wouldn't come because gamestop had no upcoming ads for it.

They have to be working. They test it in store before accepting the trade in.

From their website.

https://www.gamestop.com/trade/

The credit values don't include the bonus so add $50 to the values there.
