Giving your old switch before 28th entitles you for the full $300 trade in value.
If you want to keep it until release date, your trade value drops to $269

Or they could do a trade in promo again too when it releases. I have some hope that they'd do it since they seem to do it quite often when a new system releases

4 months from now the value will prob drop to $200, holidays ppl will want the OLED Switch, resell value will drop. The only reason they are giving you $300 right now is because the OLED isn't out yet.

It ain't because no performance is gained here, at least specs wise. It might be different on actual release though.

If oled screen and storage is not a priority, no

This is all totally normal for EB Games, throughout the history of EB Games posts on RFD we usually have to explain all the details of any promo or anything to the employees and sometimes even argue to get them to look into it enough to realize it's in effect, and that's just the beginning. Then getting promos to apply becomes a huge problem as they struggle with the computer etc., sometimes they figure it out, sometimes they apologetically cannot, other times they will insist you are wrong and that's not how it works.MikeStrathmore wrote: ↑ So I was at my local shop on my lunch break at about 1:30, and I kid you not the Store Manager didn't believe me that this promotion was going on today. I had to show him the email and tell him to look on his own website.
He said, "I haven't received instructions on this yet but stick around just in case..."
Literally at 1:50 another customer came in asking if he could preorder it (no trade in) and the Store Manager told him he had no information on this and couldn't help. The guy left!
Meanwhile at 1:57PM he gets a call from his District Manager authorizing him to start preorders at 2:00. No trade in required. I felt bad for the guy that left minutes earlier.
I guess there isn't a point to this story except to say that EB Games has the worst communications policies in place. It's just so amateur hour. Which in turn makes for garbage customer service and lost sales from that poor dude that left dejected.
I was able to trade in my Switch for this deal, but I shouldn't know more about what's going on than the employees. So embarassing.
