If you're debating getting the just-released Nintendo Switch but don't want to break the bank, EB Games is currently running a few trade-in offers that might help make up your mind!

The current promotions are as follows:

  • get $150 off the Nintendo Switch when you trade in a New 3DS XL or Wi U 32 GB
  • get double the trade value for any PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U or 3DS games you trade towards the purchase of any Nintendo Switch hardware, software or accessories
  • trade five games with a minimum value of $8 and get $100 towards the Nintendo Switch

All in all, this is a pretty great bundle of offers if you've got old consoles and completed games lying around. Keep in mind that if you are trading in games, the games must include original case and artwork. For consoles, you must have all necessary components and modified units will not be accepted. These offers are all running through April 2. Trade offers cannot be combined.

      $150 no double up.

      The double up promo only applies to games which was a similar one day promo last month for Wii U, PS4 and XB1 games. It's still a good deal because an immediate trade-in towards the Switch will eliminate taxes on the amount traded in.

      With the $150 promo, you should save another $20 in taxes. I would trade-in my Wii U games but I like to keep my Nintendo produced games.

      Generally speaking, each game needs to have a minimum of $8 or $10 TIV to begin with.

    • I just went in and snagged the last Neon Switch console at my location. Also traded in a bunch of PS4 games I got during black Friday and boxing days sales, that I'll never play because of FFXV...Got $220 trade on 6 games.

      Can't complain about that!

    • Does anyone know if you do the trade in you can use on other stuff instead?

    • Could you put the money towards a switch for the double trade in value and then cancel, I had a EB Games employee do this for me when the xbox one s came out, he put my trade towards Forza horzion 3 and then canceled the preorder to put it on the Xbox One S.

      Yep, classic Piggyback Promo at EBGames.

      I honestly don't think they care since they're making bank on the low trade values, been this way for the last decade with their Trade And Save system.

    • I went to do a trade at eatons centre. They told me the double trade in is only towards switch accesories. Is this true? They also refused to double my ffxv because it was in the most wanted list. I feel like I got a clueless CS

      That seems to be such a common problem with EB Games, they have so much trouble with trade promos. That's the situation I'm in now, the location that seems to be pretty good is out of pre-orders, but the location that is terrible with promos and that I decided I would stop going to still has pre-orders available.

      Anyone have an opinion on how likely it is the stores will get more pre-orders? Do you think Nintendo is gonna have low stock, either intentionally or not?

    • Do you have to pay full price (minus the credit from trades) when pre-ordering switch?
