Gamestop having a 50% console trade in bonus week, $232 for Wii U (USA)

Gamestop is offering 50% bonus values on trading in consoles from 3/6 to 3/15. Some example values WITH bonus, for today 3/6 - prices many drop anytime so YMMV after today.

PS4 - $345
Wii U - $232
3DS XL - $101.50

Their website http://www.gamestop.com lists pre-bonus values, multiply it by 1.5 to get the value you should get for clean systems without defects/etc. PS3, 360, vita, etc also all get bonuses.

Good time to dump older systems, I just traded in my PS4 and Wii U and will buy a new PS4, no plans on buying a new Wii U for now since I don't play it at all but since I bought the refurb system for $225 straight from Nintendo it basically was a year long rental for free.

They also have higher trade in values this weekend for many games, here is a dump from user DealSeeker2U on cheapassgamer:

Sweet, glad I waited (...ok, I was just too lazy to do it right away) to sell my 3DS XL.

I'll probably do this after work tonight and get a game or two.

Crazy TIV for FIFA considering the EPL season is already over. Also interesting that the last gen versions trade in for more.

Considering trading in my Wii U. Only game I'm really excited for in 2015 is Splatoon

I have a Taco Bell Destiny bundle that I've been too lazy to sell on Ebay. (I entered on a whim and won it despite already owning a PS4.)

Is it possible to just trade in the whole thing at Best Buy, unopened?

You get that much for a WiiU in the US?

I'm pretty sure the base value for EBGames Canada is like $40

or am I reading the promotion wrong?

I'm very tempted to trade in my 3DS XL to get a New 3DS for half price. I am sure it's been talked to death already, but how exactly do I go about doing a system transfer in this scenario? I would basically need to get my $100 credit, buy the New 3DS, but stay in-store with my old 3DS until the transfer finishes, at which point I give the old 3DS to the clerk and go on my merry way?

Just sold my PS4 to Amazon for $283 rats!

Edit: Guess that's not too bad I paid $280 for it new last July, so a year rental!

Might be time to dump my Zelda 3DS XL, if I trade in the system do I lose my digital game purchases?

Hmmm don't know whether I should trade in my 3DS XL now for the new 3DS or wait until holiday season when there'll be a special edition N3DS XL.

I have a 20th Anniversary PS4 I haven't opened. Tempted to trade in my launch PS4 for cash.

I guess if I back up all my saves to the cloud it won't be too bad to transfer to a new console. How do I wipe my PS4 after I get the new one set up?

You would most likely have to buy the N3DS for full price take it home transfer and then stuff over. Then take back both systems "return" the N3DS trade in your old one then repurchase the N3DS with the credit and pay the difference.

It's a mess....

Unless you find a store that will let you do the transfer right away at the store but it could take a while depending on how much you have on the system/connection.

Ugh. Guess I won't be dumping it then.
You might be able to keep your digital games if you go on to the website and talk to someone. I traded in my 3DSXL a few weeks before the N3DS came out and did that. I just had to answer a few questions like serial # of the new system (asked for old but didn't have it) and what my eshop purchases were. Only you don't keep is game saves.

Not bad. I love the fuck out of my PS4 and Wii U though. This would be nice if I were wanting to make a switch to one of the other consoles I guess. I do want an Xbox One but not enough to part with the other systems. If Nintendo announced a Wii U revision with a new look or bigger HDD I might consider that (though would still be hesitant because of the shitty online system).

Whoa...If I traded my PS4 in I'd get back more than I payed for it. Kind of tempting...

Seriously thinking about the PS4 trade-in. $345 is pretty sick.

The problem is it's Gamestop credit and I don't buy anything at Gamestop anymore.

Yes I did! Great deal too, I can get you the hook up.
