For those of you not aware – your friendly high street retailer “Gamestation” are so keen for your traded games – they will offer to beat any price of any competitor by a clear £1 per item.

The only rule is that you need to be able to substantiate your claim – and for the competitor to be within 3 miles – so as a rule of thumb – if your Gamestation is in Town Centre – the competitor needs to be too.

So your saying Argos are offering £25 for a copy of MySims? On which console? Showing £4 for me.

just an example of how deal works not saying it is price now look at argos trade in page


I did before I posted, maybe you should have. Your example is an epic fail and misleading.

The £1 extra part of your post is hot, the rest freezing.

1quid extra thing has been running 'forever'
the buy low- trade high is common sense
selling on ebay takes time , you'd be better pumping that 130credit into low buys and trade high etc again and again ...only when you are sick of it sell for cash. (or just buy games etc if want)
seen threads where people have built up hundreds of credit from 20quid.
1 trade and sell is not really getting into the ripoff spirit!

Apart from CEX realised this was widespread about a year ago and react very fast to lots of multiple sell attempts, and changed their T+Cs to state that they can now refuse multiples at their discretion.

And Argos/Asda/Tesco also finally realised they were being done over by offering ludicrous prices and getting dumped with tons of stuff they could never hope to make a profit on.

And Gamestation largely refused the £26 mysims, because they are allowed to refuse what they want as the consumer has no rights in this area.

So overall a pretty bad "deal" as more likely to lose out!

As said above, this has been running for as long as I can remember... so not really a 'deal'

I built up over £250 o my Gamestation trade in card last year from buying cheaper, playing, then selling to Gamestation using CEX printouts as proof. They nearly always beat by £1 unless i bought in a new game then £30 maximum offered (e.g. Guitar hero WOR which i paif £29.95 for and they wouldn't beat CEX's £30 offer jsust match it).

In my experience the only cap on beating trade in prices was when they actually sold the game or console for less than the CEX trade in price. I got approx £33 ( I can't remember exactly) for Black Ops only a few weeks ago.
