GameStop is hoping that a just-announced slew of offers as part of its spring sale that kicks off on Sunday will bring in some much-needed revenue for the beleaguered gaming retail chain, following a bad earnings report that crushed the company’s stock a few days ago.

This also follows the company’s recent announcement of a new emphasis it will be putting on e-sports, which comes as the chain’s focus on sales of physicals discs and trade-ins of pre-owned games is increasingly falling out of step with the industry’s move toward digital gaming.

Among the offers and discounts that are part of the just-announced spring sale, which runs through April 20, are console trade-in deals, such as $250 in store credit when you trade-in a PlayStation 4 Pro or Xbox One X. Nintendo Switch console trade-ins, as well as any PlayStation 4 brought in, will fetch you $200 in credit, while you’ll get $150 for the Xbox One S.

There are also a ton of sales on accessories, plus gift cards that will be handed out when you buy certain consoles.
