From reading on the net it seems that they never give out cash, just want you to take vouchers which might be a bit dodgy at the moment.

why is store credit dodgy? Surely they say they give cash (instore) so they would wouldnt they? I have had wii fit for months and only used it 3 times - I may well trade it in for cash

this is the best time to trade

Tried to sell 360 console to cex for cash - wouldnt do it, vouchers only, emailed them to clarify and was told vouchers only for forseable future, that was couple of weeks ago tho
#9
Traded in 3 separate orders worth of games, dvds etc. Only received payment for 1 of them so far. Sent it in by post and requested payment onto debit card. Just be careful at the moment, best go to one of their stores where they have to pay you there and then. I've only lost say £10 so far so I'm not too upset but a Wii Fit is quite valuable at the moment no?;-)

I think that's in Company owned stores... my local one (Middlesbrough) is a franchise, and I've traded loads of stuff in for cash over the last few weeks

Lots of reports that they won't give cash, only vouchers.

Lots of reports that they are in trouble too, meaning your vouchers could be worthless.

see link..wonder if the high trade in price is to get money in their tills and give you vouchers which will be worthless if they go bust unless you trade in for somethging overpriced straight away?
#13
Got cash recently myself and traded things in.. franchise store in Wrexham though.
suspended#14
They were really reluctant to give cash for my x1950pro, but i got it out of 'em eventually :)
#15
As I understand it each store has an allocation of cash to use every day, once thats gone its store vouchers only
#16
I think it's related to how much stock is in the store at the time.

If they're sitting on too much stock and too little cash in the coffers, all they'll offer you are vouchers or an exchange. They can also refuse to exchange anything they have too much off. In all honesty - I think most of the stores out there are in that predicament!


If you're gonna do this, I'd swap it for games I really wanted. Alternatively - sell yer Wii Fit privately :)
#17
ive been and got cash a few times before
just depends how much they have. got like £45 for gta 4 when it first came out.
#18
Lol well too bad CEX are terrible and when you order stuff online it takes up to 3 months to come... but if u have a store close to you, cant be too bad can it?
#19
Anyone who goes into CEX on a regular basis knows that there are always long queues, well in the 3 I regularly go in (Leeds, Wakefield, Bradford) with 80% of people wanting to 'trade for cash', the shop wont have a bottomless pit of money and when they reach a certain limit they simply turn around and say they have no cash or that someone has gone to the bank, to be honest I totally understand them when they do this.

They are a trade shop but it gets to a point where if hardly anyone is purchasing goods from there then there not going to give out cash and be left with loads and loads of a certain product, its just not viable. I myself have been refused a trade in of an iPhone (In A condition) just because they have 4+ of it in the store, same will happen with Wii fit if you take it expecting £84 cash, I advise you look on their website and see if they have loads of wi fit (this is usually indicated by a 4+ notation next to the CEX shop location)

I'm not surprised that some CEX stores wont survive as the trade in for cash to purchase ratio must be terrible.
#20
It's not surprising they've not giving out cash. Even without the supposed cashflow problems - there's a MSE thread about that [url= forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=1054819]here[/url] - their prices are crazy. They're selling things like PS3s second hand at near retail cost.
#21
problem is, when they raise prices, they have to raise the price they pay out too when they buy the product in. Even so i think cex are pretty good on the whole. some prices are fine, and some are a steal such as the 'value' items for ps2 and gamecube things, you can get memory cards for 50p, steering wheels for 75p. Most things ive bought have arrived within a couple of weeks, and instore worst case is it doesnt have a manual, in which case you can turn it down!
#22
Eew, the thought of using someone's used Wii Fit board :oops:
#23
If they go bust I will be annoyed - my local gamestation price beat them on exchanges which is usually about 10 to 12 quid more on some games than CEX give! No competition means low exchange value...
#24
Would not surprise me if this gets higher closer to Christmas.

Yes I have a few issues with my local one in Brighton...
Its been brilliant until recently...
3 times Ive dragged my bag of kids old games to get cash...
only to be told "No more cash today sorry":x
If they had a store phone number I could save myself some hassle but you cant get the number...
I did exchange some last week as I got fed up with the bag in the hall...
the kids got the games they wanted but they didnt get as much on exchange as they would have for cash and then buying elsewhere...
Game and game station didnt come close to CEX prices tho...
Ive been told not to deal with CEX online as its a pain in the a**e...

did u honestly just say that ? i think they might be abit ****** that they close ... also the employees migth not be to chuffed on losing a job .

worst case is you lose a few measily pounds on a trade-in .......get a grip
#27
Haha, chill out. It's not exactly skilled labour.

Does anyone know if it's possible to sell something online, and then use the credit to buy something instore? Either if they post you vouchers, or the store credit is linked to your account or something?
#28
well ive not had problems - yeah hardly ever have cash in their stores, because nobody buys anything from them with cash, just credit notes.

when i went to newcastle, i would use a voucher and pay maybe £2 and walk out with a bucketload of games. it isnt really helping them, but why should i pay more for 2nd hand than new?

btw if you just sent the items in via courier, you get paid cash. i got £150 in my bank last week for some items.

thats a top price for a wii fit though.

the person who stated they give more for wii fit than a wii console and 4 games and 2 controllers - thats false for sure. they are giving more than £84 cash for a wii. extra controller is another £15 probably. even naff games will get you cash.

thats why they give you vouchers, so you can then use them in store.

you can also buy items on their site, then send the voucher back and get the amount credited back to your payment card. but as of late they havent been doing their online orders. ive ordered a few things as i have a £62 voucher, but its been 8 days and not one item has been posted to me.
#30
cex is a pathetic company, i lost over£100 of games to them, they just keep talking **** all the time


my advice would be to stay clear of them
#31
tbh - I could tell you a shed load of stories about that company (good and bad):
I was their 7th ever member of staff back in 1993 when it was just a tiny shop in Whitfield Street and all staff inc the owner (Dudani) worked along side us. We used to go out after work and all get hammered together: Even Charlie Brooker and I were good friends back then, though I reviewed games for a competitor magazine..
Great times!! - but it grew at a hell of a pace and within a few years lost alot of the fun and became more corporate. Still - at £18 a day cash in hand, the law soon caught up with them and the "dormant" company registered address and no Nat Ins being paid got changed..

Naturally we resented the changes (lost our staff purchase scheme of paying the trade in price when we wanted to buy stuff - the whole reason I worked there!!), but when you look at the business angle, it made sense. I have to admit that very few people who worked there left, they usually got fired for nicking stuff...
Anyways - I bailed after Uni and still visit the place from time to time :)

Aahh... good times!!......
#32
am thinking of trading 3 wii fit and abit of cash for a apple 16gb phone in that sense am thinking its going to work out roughley £260 cant go wrong for an apple 16gb phone at that price
#33
its a shame the cex i go to "never" had money even when i tell the the kid in front just bought a £25 game and i wanted cash for a £22 game. bunch of Re*ards
#34
I think its just a case of what time you go, what mood the staff member who is serving you is, and how much cash yiou are going to receive, largest sum ive received is £207, with no hassle.

Good to know that sence of humour still prevails in the world. Relax - its the end of the world today so no one will care anyway soon! :whistling:


Disclaimer: the end of the world is highly unlikely today as they are only introducing 1 beam of light into the accelerator. Enjoy life while it lasts :roll:
#36
just don't do it online, whatever you do.
#37
Yes and then how much would CEX sell it for, the robbing *******s ?

I never usually do this but I'm voting this cold if only because I hate this company and I would advise against trying to help them.
#38
I spent ages getting the Wii Fit then never bothered with it. I should get it back out again really!!
#39
Anyone who manages to £84 cash out of cex deserves a gold medal..........

Has anyone here bought online and been credited back on their payment card when sending in the vouchers? I ask because I have a few vouchers but am reluctant to purchase online if I dont get my money back.
