With next-gen consoles around the corner, you can bet that GameStop is gearing up for trade-ins on current-gen consoles like PS4 and Xbox One. For those looking to offload their soon-to-be-old systems, GameStop will give you bonus trade-in credit when you trade toward the preorder of the Xbox Series X or Series S.
GameStop announced the trade-in promotions in a recent email outlining the Xbox Series X. Depending on what you trade in, you can get up to $200 in credit toward your preorder of the Xbox Series X or Series S.
- $200 — Xbox One X, PS4 Pro$175 — Nintendo Switch, PS4 (1TB model)$125 — Nintendo Switch Lite, Xbox One S, PS4 (500GB model)$100 — Xbox One (500GB model)
So if you happen to have an Xbox One X or PS4 Pro that you’re not planning on using soon, you can get the Series X for $300 or the Series S for $100.
It’s unclear how long this offer will be available. Considering the email says that you’re trading toward the preorder of a next-gen console, one would assume that you’d be without a console from the time you preorder until the Series X launches on November 10. However, it’s certainly possible this offer will be available on launch day–we’ll know more once the promotion is live. If that’s the case, though, you can put a deposit down toward your preorder (usually $50), and then trade your console in later to put a big dent in your remaining balance.
While we’re still waiting on release date and pricing information for the PS5, it seems likely that this promotion (or a similar one) will also apply to Sony’s next-gen console. GameStop will also offer multiple installment plans for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will be separate from the enticing Xbox All Access payment plan.
