    This is a pretty decent deal for a PS3, but a lot of the other systems just seems like it’s not worth it. A Nintendo Wii is only worth $10 to them in “Good” condition!

    • Elizabeth says:

      You can buy used Wiis for $50 and completely refurbished ones for $70, they arent worth much.

    • Em says:

      I run a hobby shop where I buy and sell things like Wiis. They’re near worthless. You can try and sell it on Craigslist for $50-$70 and have to mess with people wanting to see it work, etc or sell it for an easy $10 to Best Buy. I know which one I’d pick and I’m super cheap and love my money LOL

    I hope they stick to this offer better then Target did when they offered at least 100$ for old IPads. We called first and drove long distances only to be told that they weren’t going to honor their promotion.

    • Rebekah says:

      Target honored theirs. We got $200 for an original iPad. It just needed to power on and not have any cracks/scratches in the screen (which the advertisement stated).

      • Brenda H. says:

        I got $200 for my original iPad as well at target. Our otterbox and zagg are what kept it new. We’ll definitely gonna try and get a best buy gift card for our old xbox.

    • LynnNV says:

      Same here. Received $200 for my hubby’s 1st generation iPad. We took it to Target Mobile as the promo details stated.

      • Gigi says:

        They didnt honor it in Utah. No scratches, great condition, and it powered on…. They wouldn’t even look at it…. They said their manager said it was illegal in Utah. We just wanted a newer iPad since it was a 1st generation. I’m glad some locations honored it.

  • Shannon Jefferson says:

    Thanks for sharing we are definitely going to check this out!

  • Barre says:

    This is an excellent deal – I traded in my PS3 last year and only got $40

  • Dena V says:

    I just saw this on their site. Ordered a new iPhone 5s yesterday and have 2 4’s and 2 4s’s to trade in. I found a store close and they’ve been in otterboxes. We will see how it goes?!

  • Kristine says:

    The program through target is better for PC’s. I took mine into a best buy store and they said they could give me nothing for it because I had a little crack in the plastic around the screen. I guess they want them in MINT condition but they offered to recycle it for me for free. I mailed mine in with the target program and they said they would give me $30. I got an email a few days later when they got it and said I made a mistake in the specs reported and my computer is actually worth $60!!! Whoo hoo!! Just thought your readers would like the some feedback on this.

  • Emma says:

    I traded in two iPhone 4 with them last week and they gave me $120 in gift cards for each of them. You can also use best buy gift cards to buy amazon or iTunes gift cards.

  • Sail4life says:

    They only offered us $6 with this deal

  • amada says:

    got 180 for 6 games and the xbox 360 white one and not the black elite one. they are giving out double what games are worth too

  • LynnNV says:

    Did this deal yesterday. Traded in my hubby’s 60GB PS3 and we received the $100 gift card. Great deal! Now we just have to figure out what to do with all of our games. :)
