If you have been waiting for a solid trade-in deal to upgrade your Nintendo (or Sony) handheld console up to the New Nintendo 3DS XL, now might be the time. GameStop is offering $100 in credit towards the purchase of a new Nintendo 3DS XL when trading in a 2DS, 3DS, 3DS XL or a PS Vita. Regularly $200, this would bring your total down to $100 on Nintendo’s latest handheld that features an additional thumbstick, faster processing, amiibo support and exclusive games.
If you’re interested in upgrading, this may be one of the best values you will find outside of selling or trading independently, which comes with its own set of hassles. You’ll find more details on the terms and conditions of the trade-in below, but for the most part it appears as though a system in good condition with a charger will lock down the credit.
You can find your nearest GameStop here.
On top of this morning’s game/app deals, GameStop is offering a Buy 2 Get 1 Free on pre-owned Wii or Nintendo DS games and accessories.
