The answer really depends on the condition of your phone. BestBuy USA has a trade in calculator on their site which I'M TOLD is very close to the actual trade in value. Only the Koodo Shops / Kiosks can evaluate your S3 for the actual Value.

Here is a link to the Trade In Calculator from Best Buy USA

My advice is to sell it yourself. Most trade-in programs (video games and hardware, phones, etc.) are HUGE rip-offs. Sometimes you can get a good deal (like when Koodo offered $50 bonus on top of the trade-in value), and even then, it's not always a good way to go with a relatively new phone like the S3.

For example, according to Best Buy's site, your phone is worth only $250. You can get $300 for it on Kijiji very quickly, but you're likely to get $350 if you're willing to wait a few days. Some have asking prices of above $400.
