Nintendo Expands Trade-In Program to Include Nintendo DS

Paul Lilly

Have an old Nintendo DS handheld console laying around? Are you planning to upgrade to the upcoming Nintendo 3DS when it comes out? If you answered 'hell yeah' to both of these questions, Target says you can bring your dust collecting DS into one of its stores and trade it in. Even if you only answered 'yes' to the first question, you can still trade in your DS and receive up to $50 towards the purchase of anything Target sells in the form of a gift card.

"Target always aims to offer guests the hottest brands in electronics for an exceptional value," said Nik Nayer , vice president of Merchandising, Target. "The Nintendo 3DS is one of the most anticipated new products to debut this spring and by expanding our trade-in options, we are offering Target's guests incredible savings on all the latest gadgets."

Target currently offers in-store credit for functioning iPads, iPhones, iPods, cell phones, and videogames, all of which can also be applied to Verizon's iPhone 4, which Target will offer starting March 25th. The Nintendo 3DS goes on sale March 27th.
