If you’ve been looking to upgrade your Nintendo Wii system to a Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 Game Console, this Amazon deal is worth a second look. Here’s how it works:
1. Trade in your Wii console on Amazon.com. Select your qualifying console and click “trade in,” then choose the condition and a shipping method (free UPS drop-off is available).
2. Once your trade-in has been received and accepted, you’ll get an Amazon.com gift card worth up to $100 (gift card amount varies based on model and condition of Wii console).
3. Plus, you’ll get a $50 bonus credit (within four days of acceptance of your trade-in) toward the purchase of a qualifying Xbox 360 or PS3 on Amazon.com.
Taking the value of the bonus credit and the Amazon.com gift card into account, that drops the price of an Xbox 360 to as low as $49.99 and a PS3 to as low as $99.99.
Your trade-in must be received and accepted by January 31, 2012. The $50 bonus credit, once received, must be used by March 31, 2012.
Your turn: What do you think of this offer? Which Xbox 360 or PS3 model are you planning to get?
