Console Trade In?

Hi

I missed the trade in offer from Microsoft back in September. I have an Xbox 360 Elite 120 and wanted to get an Xbox One S.
Do you guys think any sort of trade in promotion will come up?
BestBuy has a perpetual offer it seems but my working unit+2 controllers is only worth $22....

Thanks

I don't think you will see any promos as they probably don't want any 360's.

I suspect if there is a promo, it will come for an upgrade of the Xbox One Slim (or original) to the Scorpio.

Thanks. That is what it seems like unfortunately.
I don't have time to list my system for private sale either... I don't have a lot of games to entice buyers either

You never know so you could just hang onto to it if you aren't willing to attempt a private sale, its only a few months until Scorpio.

I know that I wont be getting a Scorpio, since I don't game enough to warrant that. But yeah, I can hold on for a bit.

Not really sure what you're expecting for an Xbox 360. Microsoft Store used to give $100, but that was 2+ years ago. Nothing close to that since.

You can regularly find Xbox One S as low as $300 with a game or two. You could wait for the Scorpio, but I can't see that being lower than $500 CAD

I would be happy with $50-75. Turns out MS does not offer any trade value for that currently.

Posting it is not the issue. Entertaining lowballers and the fact that im not home most of the time prevents me from privately selling.
