There’s good news and bad for those of you planning on trading in your 360 for an Elite. Xbox360 Fanboy got a hold of the flier for the promotion, and it will work differently than previously rumored. The good news is you’ll still be getting credit for your system, the bad news is the credit won’t be used how you would like.
The good news is GameStop is offering more trade in credit than usual. The bad news is you won’t be able to use it towards the purchase of your Elite.
The fliers will be given to all Elite purchasers, who can then bring their old system in before May 27th along with the appropriate coupon, and can receive increased trade-in value for their system. While having any program is a plus, it still seems like a pretty raw deal for the consumer. The trade-in values aren’t that good, and not being able to use it towards your Elite make this offer decidedly mediocre. The question now is, how many 360s will we see on eBay on April 29th?
