Maybe more of a tip then a deal. This is just an example, lots of other opportunities without prime and with other games.

Got 8-10 hours spare over the next week to run through the Gears of War 4 campaign and not really interested in multiplayer?

1. Buy Gears of War 4 from amazon prime for £37.99

2. Sell the game at CEX for £36. You have 10 days to send it to them and keep that price.. https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=0889842121513

3. Get the game the next day and keep the packaging.

4. Enjoy the game for a about a week, finish it? Keep checking back with CEX to see if the price holds, if it does you could cancel your old sale then resell and extend your time in affect.

5. Use the packaging to send the game back to CEX freepost via Royal Mail or Collect+

6. Only spend £1.99

Done this loads of times over the past couple of years without any issues. Play through all that latest releases with short campaigns for less than a fiver, if you have the time.

PS

I assume you also get to keep the following games, not sure as I already have them.

Gears of War

Gears of War 2

Gears of War 3

Gears of War: Judgment

Or use a nearby CeX store that has good customer service.

I like your thinking.

I bought it for £35.15 from Game collection when they had their code. Plus sold the codes for the 360 Gears games on ebay last night for £10.50 since I already owned them all. This is a not bad deal too ;)
#4
I do the same, did it with Mafia 3 last weekend.

No malice in it, I just wasn't sure I'd like it and was right.

Ended up costing me £6, less ham the price of a cinema ticket (and I've seen worse films)

Yep agreed, this was just an example with todays offers. I assume you get the codes with this as it says you just need to play it. So yea I guess you could sell then and profit :)

So the deal is the trade in value of the game at CeX? Couldnt you get £1 extra at Game if thats local to a CeX

That is correct John, you could, making it just 99p to play the campaign :p

Online trade in price at game is £30 cash. Not sure about in store. The point of deal is you can guarantee the sale price for 10 days which gives you time to finish the game. Costing you in affect £1.99

GOW4 was just an example but given the temp maybe its not a great deal ;)

Week to play Gears of War 4 and keep 4 games for £1.99 I thought that was pretty good :D
#9
With my partners student discount I'll be getting paid 1p to play this game, and hopefully get the other codes free with only little effort. Excellent deal, thanks for the heads up - I'll do this in the future, it justifies paying for prime this way! Should be a hot deal really!
#10
Or, play games for almost free; buy a used on eBay and sell used on eBay... everyone knows this sort of thing, not exactly genious. Cold.

Its a decent system for people who are only interested in the campaign side and have the time to complete in 10 days

It will cost a lot more than £1.99 to buy a used copy play it whilst it drops in value, sell it less postage and fees

There are no seller or postage fees this way, it makes a big difference relatively speaking

It will be the same price as the base game (so around £6?) because the DLC is not included.

(even if you took them a sealed copy - it would still be taken in as base game)

Great thinking op i do the same as you, how long until the price decreases usually?
#22
Good thinking, purchased it with Student discount for £35.99 so it's 1p profit for me lol

Difficult to predict I've seen it last a week or so. As I said keep cancelling your order and sell again to keep extending the time you get to keep the game.

I had Uncharted 4 for about 3 weeks and in fact made a profit as had some huge discount on the pre order price via some deal at very.co.uk. So even had chance to try out the multplayer for a week :)
#24
I've got mine for £38 from simply games and will prob take to cex Saturday week, currently £36 back in storw
#25
The postage is nor tracked though is it? There's always the risk of CEX saying they haven't received it? Heard stories like that before.

Good tip though

Ha yea I give up. Maybe I didn't explain the deal simply enough.

Really the point is you get a guaranteed hassle free buy back price for new releases with enough time to finish or even just test out a new game. With this particular deal you even get 4 games thrown in for free. But still freezing, oh well doesn't stop me doing it I guess :)

I use to do this when i had time.good effort.

FYI,

Amazon sent me an extra set of codes for the gears of war collection even though it was already in the box. And I traded this in at GAME over the weekend for £41. £7 Voucher deal plus £2 preorder discount means I only paid £31
