Kotaku has discovered a strange offer on “the trade-in page of Gamestop’s website”. At the top of the current list of trade offers and values, you can trade your Nintendo Switch towards a new Switch and get $200 trade credit. It seems odd that GameStop is offering to trade a Switch for another Switch, and the fine-print does not help clarify things either.
Well, GameStop commented about the matter to Kotaku, confirming that the offer isn’t exactly what their website is saying. In fact, the offer is “targeted toward [people] who may want to updated to one of the newly release Nintendo Switch bundles such as the Nintendo Switch Diablo III Eternal Collection. They may want to get a new Switch console with a custom feel”. Is the offer worth it? Kotaku says that “it is not worth trading in your current Switch and then paying another $160”. A screenshot of the offer, as seen on their website, is down below.
