Old PS3 console

PlayStation 3 Slim 3rdgen

If you're finally ready to upgrade a console that comes from a generation that got its start way back in 2005, Best Buy might just have the holiday season's most appealing upgrade offer. Through November 15, customers can get up to $150 toward a brand new Xbox One when trading in their old Xbox 360 or PS3 at participating stores.

The "bonus" offer here is actually in the form of a $50 coupon toward a new Xbox One, which is given in exchange for "any working Xbox 360 or PS3 console." Add that to the "minimum $100 gift card" the store is offering for 250GB Xbox 360 units or any "slim" PS3 unit, and you're well on your way to paying for a console that starts at a $349 asking price. Best Buy will also give you $10 each for up to four working wireless controllers you trade in with the system.

Even without the bonus offer, Best Buy's $100 for working, recent Xbox 360 and PS3 systems is a pretty good value. Gamestop currently only offers only $60 for a 320GB Xbox 360, and $90 for a top-of-the-line 500GB PS3. Amazon offers "up to" $80 to $115 for various PS3 slim units, and $75 to $95 for Xbox 360 S systems, depending on condition. The Microsoft Store offers $100 for any working Xbox 360 or PS3, but only if you use the money towards an Xbox One.

Best Buy's bonus offer is also a halfway decent way to get some value out of the oldest versions of the previous console generation, since it guarantees at least a $50 coupon for that aging hardware. Amazon only offers up to $24 for an original 20GB Xbox 360, for instance, while Best Buy offered an insulting $2 for a 60GB launch-era PS3 prior to the coupon.
