GAME also sell preowned copies for £7.99

- Mai

This does work as i have just got back from argos.

Purchase a copy of my sims on the wii for £10 from cex, and the head over to argos where you can trade it for a £25 instore voucher. Luckily the CS aren't too clued up on games and as such are just working off their price list.

Worked in both my local stores as i managed to get 2 copies from my local cex, Nice quick £30 profit for me, albeit it in argos vouchers

Nice one.....what do you do when trade in just take it to the counter and they give you a gift card?
#3
excellent find. even if it is argos vouchers.
#4
Presumably you can do this at Asda too - and, soon, Tesco.
suspended#5
You can only trade in one copy of each game so be careful.

Take 2 people if you want to trade 2

Just take it to the Cs desk with some ID (i used driving licence / OH used a gas bill) and they put the £25 credit onto a gift card

I am doing this tommorrow:

People follow these guidelines:

Turn your old games into gift vouchers to spend on anything
Turn your old games into gift vouchers to spend on anything

* New trade-in service now available in all UK stores.
* Trade-in selected PS3, Wii, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS games for Argos vouchers to spend in store. Some may be worth over £20!
* You can trade-in as many games as you like, but only 1 copy of each game.
* Look out for our ever increasing range of video games that we trade-in
* Use your Argos voucher as full or part payment against any future purchase in store.

Ordered,....present sort for my lad....Buy 2 games, for a tenner, get 2 x £25.00 so £30.00 profit and only cost me £9.99 for it !! yehh !!
#23
Dont leave it too long as the website does state that prices could change at anytime, and im sure they soon will once they realise what is happening
#24
Can you returned to CEX? if it all changes over night?

If you have bought from online, returns can be the most difficult thing. They have poor online service, after you send them a handful of email then only do they reply to you. I would avoid it, they will take up your time.

#30
Cool Deal!!
#31
None of these store near me !
#32
t&c say games must be in good condition with booklet,and when cex realises what's going on they'll put the price up

anyone know if its one game per store or one game full stop?

do they take a note of your name etc to stop you trading in the same game at more than one store?
thanks
#34
Why do they pay so much when its £7.99 on their own website?
#35
Be quick with this one, also note that CEX will only give full refunds within a 24 hour period.
#36
If you dont live so close to a CEX pop into argos....but it brand new for £17.99 and then trade it in straight away for £25 :)
#37
This is clearly an error on their side, as above.. they sell it for £7.99 preowned and £17.99 brand new!
