As of right now (I just checked my app), $120 for a launch Xbox One S (1Tb) trade credit or $96 cash. If you are a Rewards member you get 10% bonus so $132. And that is without ANY promotions. Many times they will run trade-in promotions that bump your trade up to 40% so you could snag $168 on the launch One S. If you have the 2Tb model right now it's $150 trade credit (or $210 with 40% trade credit).
And right now, they are running $50 bonus credit toward the purchase of ANY new Xbox One console. So you'd get $170 for the launch S/1Tb and $200 for the 2Tb.
So if by "not much more" than $75 you meant almost 100% more than you stated, you are exactly right!
EDIT: Also, no 'swoopy' marketing needed, no shipping required, no hassles as long as the original accessories are in the box. Done and done.
No real hate for Gamestop, I buy a lot of things there but, they dont pay much so I normally keep or find another source to sell
I used ebay as an example. My experience with selling stuff at gamestop. A 2 week old game, still selling on the shelf for $59.99, top rated high demand game, they would only pay $22-25. And many people say the same thing (they are nicknamed "game-rip-off" all over the place). The same game, I would drop on ebay with $5 shipping and would sell within 1 hour for $50. UNLESS they are offering a promition of some type most times they are very cheap.
Ebay fees....10% off the top and about 2.6 - 3% on paypal fees (and charge for shipping with a $2-4 handling fee to cover your shipping fees). For a Xbox one S 500gb, game stop wont offer you more than $75-99 (say $100). If you sell on ebay, today, you could ask $160-170 buy it now and it would sell rater quick (if in mint shape and complete)...and get it, so even after all fees, you will see $30-40 or more in your pocket and in cash (after the 3 day transfering).
Just saying, but, personally, I would end up on one of those apps on my phone like "letgo" or "offerup", When I got my Xbox one S 500gb (I picked it up on black friday from Amazon with a game and 3 months xbox live for $163.50), I dropped my old PHAT Xbox one on letgo, within 2 days, I sold it for $225. No fees and cash in hand you just have meet someone.
Just some thoughts, as you were looking to get a XBOX ONE X for the best deal possable(sub $399). With the discount giftcard thing and getting the MOST POSSABLE for your current system, The $500 Xbox One X will not be hard to bite once you do your homework here.
In fact, you might be able to walk away getting a Xbox One X feeling like you almost stole it for the price you end up getting if you do a lot of homework. It is possable with a little time here and there to find these things.
But when it comes down to it, to each their own. There is ways to get top dollar for your device.

Agreed 100%, When Xbox one games are hitting 100gb with a DLC (Gears 4 after updates was 120gb or something), now we are talking 4K games with 4K textures. My 500gb Xbox One S's internal HD has 6 games on it and it's full.
If your buying a 1gb Xbox one X, plan to buy an External 5tb drive, as if your any bit hardcore, you will regret not having it.
