The "convenience" of a 3DS system transfer coupled with the magic of two visits to GameStop is required. Sounds fun.
GameStop retail locations are giving customers $100 in-store credit with the trade in of a 3DS XL, or $75 with other 3DS models, when they purchase a New 3DS XL. You just have to transfer all your digital content at home.
The New 3DS requires the source system to be on hand to perform a system transfer. With that in mind, GameStop is letting customers come back to the store to trade in the system along with the receipt for their New 3DS XL purchase to get the in-store credit. When not trading in towards Nintendo's new handheld, the 3DS XL has up to a $70 trade-in value, while 2DS and 3DS systems have $45 and $50 maximum values.
Trade values at GameStop vary depending on whether or not you have a Power Up Rewards membership, and if you want cash or store credit. The New 3DS XL offer is only valid towards store credit and expires on February 15.
