Question to those who traded in their 360's...

14 replies 227 views Edited Jun 27, 2013

So I'm getting ready to tarde in my 360 in the next day to couple of days, and I'm wondering if any of you did anything to them before you traded them in. Like erase your profile, clear your HDD, etc. I didn't know if gamestop did this before they re sell them or not, so I wanted to make sure before I traded it in.

I traded my Xbox 360 at GameStop and after the guy was finished testing it, he wiped the hard disk and restored it to factory settings.

If you're able to remove the content stored on your hard drive yourself then you should do that before trading in the system. Though, I'm pretty sure GameStop does handle the project for you. It's hard to remember whether or not they had done so when trading in my Xbox 360 that had just come back in the mail after getting a Red Ring of Death. But I do recall the GameStop employee resetting what was on my PSP's memory stick when trading in that one.

Clear the hard drive, you don't want them getting any credit card information. Also, how much did you get for trading it in?

I got $260.10 for my 360, I had this Power up Rewards coupon thing that I printed off that gave me 50% more for every item I traded in. I am also a Power up Rewards Pro member and that added 10%, so I ended up getting 60% more for it. I was shocked when it said $260.10. With the store credit, I was able to pay off my Playstation 4 pre-order and I still had store credit left which I put towards my PS4 pre-orders.

Donny, was that just a 360 Trade in or did you have games? I have the old style 360 so I'll get less I suppose. I haven't traded it in yet, but I also have the 50% extra credit coupon. Plus the 10% for power rewards.

I wiped my harddrive, figured I was safer doing it myself, thanks for the suggestions all.

It may depend which Gamestop you go to. Just make sure to delete everything before you sell it.
