Craziest Trade-In Deal Ever Happening This Weekend at Future Shop & Best Buy Canada

November 8, 2013 Written by Jason Dunning


Update 3: If you’re still skeptical about this trade-in offer, Best Buy Canada has confirmed it and posted a FAQ.

Update 2: Future Shop has confirmed that they’ll be accepting 3DS or PS Vita game trades in the offer as well:


Update: After we emailed Best Buy Canada, they have confirmed that you can trade-in any PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS or PS Vita game towards Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, or Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on current-gen consoles.

As for Future Shop, they have confirmed on their website that any PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii U game trades will be accepted in the offer.

Expect full details to be posted on each retailer’s website later today.

Original Story: I personally didn’t think this was true when I first read it, but the FS_Gamer Twitter account has confirmed it, along with Future Shop PR man Elliott Chun.

Starting tomorrow, November 9th and ending on Monday, November 11th, Future Shop and Best Buy Canada will be giving you the chance to trade in ANY PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii U game and you’ll get a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, or Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on current generation consoles for free (Xbox 360 and PS3 only, not valid on the special editions).

Yes, ANY game (must work and come with box) will work in this deal, so if you have a really old copy of NHL 11 or Madden 11, you can bring it into a Future Shop or Best Buy Canada this weekend and leave with a free copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, or Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

The only restrictions are that it is limit 1 per person, so bring someone along with you if you want to get more than one game. As well, Future Shop stores in Nanaimo, Kelowna, Vaughan, St. James, Garden City, Pembina, and Richmond Hill are not eligible.

Since this deal is only valid on the current generation versions, keep in mind that you can upgrade to the next-gen version for just $9.99 when the PS4 comes out.

Are you going to take advantage of this deal? Let us know in the comments below.
