    Even wihout experience with GC on that, any retailer will low ball you on a trade in. That's kinda the point.

    Don't they give 25% off whatever it is your buying? That coule make it worthwhile if it's a big ticket item.

    Basically if they expect to sell something for X dollars, they will pay you X/2 dollars. It all depends on the condition, too. And if it's a vintage guitar totally different rules apply.

    Yeah and Im pretty sure you get that no matter what your trade in value is. You could probably even buy something, open the package, then trade it in and come out ahead.

    I have a bunch of Boss Guitar Effect Pedals that I keep around to trade in to Guitar Center every time I make a big purchase. The 10% off a new item, can typically outweigh the value of the pedal.
