JB Hi-Fi Is Slinging Extra Trade-In Credit For PS4 Consoles When Buying A PS5

Time for an upgrade?

JB Hi-Fi is joining in on the PlayStation 4 console trade-in action with a brand-new offer for its customers to get extra trade value on their PS4 or PS4 Pro consoles when putting it towards a shiny new PS5.

The way it works is that customers who want to trade in their old machine towards a PlayStation 5 Slim at JB Hi-Fi can go through the usual trade process via the JB website, get their trade-in credit (up to $159 for a PS4 Pro) and then earn an extra $66 voucher on top to redeem for a PS5 before May 26th at 11:59PM AEST.

Unlike an EB Games trade-in, you won’t have to physically go into store either with JB’s trade-in process going through an online portal, where a credit is immediately issued and then the device needs to be sent away within 7 days (at no extra charge), making it a potentially useful option against taking your console into your local EB.

It’s unclear how this deal might interact with EB’s new “Best Trade Price Guarantee” initiative and its return to trading in older consoles like the PS4, but I’d hazard a guess that the “bonus coupon” element of JB’s deal might complicate things for anyone looking to get the trade matched.

In my review of the PlayStation 5’s new, slimmer model I said, “For the vast majority of existing PS5 owners, the new slimmer model isn’t going to inspire any real need for an upgrade – but that’s hardly the point. PlayStation’s not only taken the opportunity to squeeze the immense size of the console down to a more reasonable volume, but added some welcome improvements along the way, meaning those looking to pick up a PS5 for the first time or add another to their household are getting an even better version of an already-great machine.”
