I just traded 2 ps3 controllers and a bunch of ps3 games...total $160.

My experience: They did check both controllers and they asked for my ID. If you spend your credits right away they will NOT charge you taxes.

I brought all my ps3 games that were collecting dust just to know if I can get anything for them, the employee told me right now is a promotion that you get extra credits for your ps3 games and probably will be the last promotion for ps3 games as Sony is taking slowly away the support for ps3 (no idea if is true or not) honestly I was surprise all but one of my games got accepted and I got $100 for them. My experience was smooth and I got way more of what I was expecting.

Cheers.
I'm assuming the promotion was the trade 3 get an extra $10? Also would you be so kind as to post the trade in values for the games (or even PM me them)? I'm thinking or trading in some PS3 games I have as well. Thanks.

Just traded in my original PS4 controller. It had a small part of the rubber on the thumbgrip worn off but otherwise was in good shape. No issues with the trade in. Was in and out of store in 2 minutes. Solid trade in value for a 3 year old controller.

Thanks. How much did they quote you for the 500gb model?
Didn't ask since there was no reason in me knowing what you'd get in exchange for the 500gb model.

Can I ask how many games? Or a few titles that you traded?

Traded in my DS3 controller on Friday towards the purchase of a $50 PS Store card. Controller was in good condition, though they didn't check it at all.

N00b EB Games question: The PS Store card was $50 and the controller trade-in value was $20. I paid a total of $20. Is that because there is no tax on PS Store or PS Plus cards? Or is there no tax for ANY purchase involving a trade-in?

I thought it was just that the subtotal was reduced by the trade-in value first, and then tax added on to the new subtotal?

If no tax, I would trade in a turd game every time I buy something...

LOOK AT YOUR RECEIPT AGAIN.

Gift cards have no tax. PS3 controller credit is supposed to be $30. That is why you paid $20 and only $20.

Games have tax. If you had chosen a game for $50+tax. Then $30 is tax exempt from controller. You would then pay $20+tax for the left over.

Traded my siaxis at town centre, picked up a PS4 controller. I also have the original PS3 that plays SACD, tempting to hear it sold for $350, was gonna use it as a cdp.

Thanks! Let's say I trade in a ps4 and ps3 controller for $80, and use that to trade for a new ps4 controller, will it be $75 no tax or $75+tax?

At EbGames you pay taxes on the differenc only

So exemple you have 50$ trade in and buy a 79.99gzme it will do

79.99-50 = 29.99 you'll pay that on the 29.99

My son only got $4.50 for his siaxis and $30 each for two dualshock. He kept his camo dual shock. No problems, they were in good shape. He picked up a trainer box of Pokemon cards for 64.95.
