GameStop now taking Switch pre-orders, earn up to $75 bonus trade-in credit

GameStop has opened up pre-orders for Nintendo Switch, and is offering an in-store trade-in deal on top of it.


Those who wish to trade-in a console they currently own for Nintendo Switch can earn up to $75 in bonus trade credit. This is for Power Up Pro Rewardsmembers ($15 a year) who trade-in a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U or PlayStation VR.

Power Up Rewards Pro members who trade Wii or 3DS toward Switch will receive $30 bonus trade credit.

Standard Power Up Rewards members who trade current-gen systmes toward Switch will be handed $50 in store credit along with the normal trade-in value. Wii and 3DS trades will net them and addition $20 in-store credit on top of the trade-in.

If any of that confused you, just look at the header image.

You can also find out what the trade-in value is for your console through here. Just enter your console in the search bar.

For example: if you are a Power Up Rewards Pro member, you will get $195 toward Nintendo Switch when trading in the 32GB Wii U.

GameStop also has six different Switch bundles available, ranging from $300 to $638, depending on what's included.

The lower priced bundle comes with two Joy-Con Controllers while the most expensive one includes a Clean and Protect Kit and seven games: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Has Been Heroes, Redout, Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, 1-2 Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Just Dance 2017.

More information is available through the links.

Nintendo Switch will retail for $299.99 in the US, £279.99 in the UK, and ¥29,980 in Japan.

It will launch in major territories including Europe, Japan and the US on March 3.
