Speaking only of trading in iPads, I think a 100 minimum is only really beneficial if you are trading in a 1st gen iPad. I traded my second gen 64gig at+t ipad to Amazon for $207. They were selling on eBay for about 250.
I went in 1 Bestbuy with an old 120gb Xbox 360 Arcade and they told me they didnt have the SKU in their system so I couldnt trade it in. I tried another Bestbuy nearby and got $100 for it, so I'd keep trying different stores if anyone gets denied.
I brought in my older PS3 and they offered $30. Everything works fine. They said that it took to long to boot up and that's a sign of a known problem with PS3's. BB is lame. All they are good for is showrooming.

These new promos typically have instructions for the monkeys to follow. Otherwise they tend to follow what they learn and hence the low ball offers. Ask for a supervisor if you're not getting the minimum. 'Slow' doesn't mean anything - it says it must be powered on and such...

My dad traded-in his white 360 with an iffy drive (not checked) for the $100 card. Employee told him it would normally be worth $10.

What do you have to bring in?, Just the box and power for the consoles or more?

I went to the BB by my house and brought in the following in a backpack. I left the controllers in my car on purpose:
1x Xbox 360 w/ power cord (had the old AV cable in my bag too, zipped up) 1x PS3 slim 60gb w/ power cord
The employee told me I need the system, the power cord, the AV cables and a controller. I stated that, on the phone, they told me I could keep my HDMI cable. So, you don't need one (100% sure for the PS3, as it didn't come with it and 99% sure for the 360--I just had an old AV cable so I gave it to them).
It was easy as pie-- $200 gift card ($100 on each, separate cards).
