where does it state there is no EDGE Bump up? I must be blind caz i dont see it

Edit: Just found it

Offer is only valid when trading towards the Preorder of PS5. While preorder quantities last. Cannot be combined with other Trade offers including EDGE. Trade must be in full working condition. Altered consoles will not be accepted for trade. Hardware must have all necessary components for trade. Subject to manager approval. Offer subject to change at any time. No substitutions will be made. No rainchecks

Get there by 6am. Might already be sold out as West Coast EB stores were taking pre-orders before close.

So this is approx equivalent of getting $305 selling a PS4 pro privately with the trade in tax savings (Ontario)

Shitty thing is being without a PS4 for 2 months while waiting for ps5 release

Shoppers (doubt they would have it at launch) with 20x pts event would cost $218 after factoring in $188 in points, and again assuming you would be able to sell a pro for $305 privately

Can anyone confirm if they got the Edge bump or not with the latest trade promo?

I know it says it wont get an extra bump, but theres been many instances in the past where it would still give you the Edge bump even if it said no.

Perhaps but only valuable to the half dozen people that are able to acquire one in person.

That’s why I might wait don’t want to go 2 months without. I wonder what type of promo they will be offering if any. Maybe I just go with private sale instead but COVID.

Promo is off the website, but its still running unadvertised in stores as long as you have a PS5 preorder.

Without a PS5 pre-order PS4 Pro, only trades in for $225, with the promo it is $270.
If you apply it to a pre-order your savings are actually $270 + tax. If you put it on a gift card it is only $270 without tax.

But who knows, for those that pre-ordered in stores,
in two months there may be another lockdown and physical stores are closed down again due to COVID.

Yeah thats true. I know about the tax savings, so I traded a spare PS4 Slim 1TB today that I had towards my preorder that I made on Thursday. Got $235 for it, which seems to me, will be as good as it gets from here on out. With Black Friday coming soon, they're definitely going to be clearing the PS4 Slims for $200 or maybe even less.

Is it too late to pre-order a PS5 from EBgames for me?

I have an Xbox One S and PS4 Pro I can trade in, towards the purchase of a PS5. But I don't know if I can even pre-order it now. I don't mind not getting it on day one.

Are people really not buying used Pro's now, or you just mean you are being lowballed for it? My friend bought a Pro off Kijiji about a week before the launch, he paid $300 with one controller and game.
c'mon get happy!
