Held off posting this until I received and sent my items, now that it's out of the way I'll share.

Amazon are currently running a promotion where they give you an extra £5 credit when you trade in £15 worth of games.

I searched for a few games to trade in to get the most out of this and I stumbled upon NHL 14 which can be traded in for £15.50 and and can be bought for about £10 from Boomerang rentals, so trading in two would get you £31 + £5 bonus = £36 for a £20 spend.

You can also trade in Deadfall (Link in first post) for £9, this costs you £5.99 each (2 for £11.98 total and you get bck 36p in points) and you will get £18 + £5 = £23 in Amazon vouchers.

Amazon even offers you free post via Royal Mail or Collect+.

Feel free to post any suggestions if you've found a better spend to voucher ratio.

You can only trade in a maximum of 2 of the same game per account; you can also only get one £5 voucher per account.

CHECK YOUR CARD ACCOUNTS THAT YOU USED FOR YOUR ORDERS; IT LOOKS LIKE BOOMERANG WERE HACKED.
REPORT ANY FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY.

Really.............

Hi Boomrang seems to be a membership rental site. Can you buy without joining?... do you have a link for NHL? How long did it take for your games to arrive?
Thanks for the help, Jane

It's not just £15 worth of games. It includes books too. It's also worth noting that this offer runs until the end of the month.

My bad Rich - I really meant I still had £6.45 left out of my £10 voucher - honest injun

I'm already a member with Boomerang so this seems like a great deal. Thanks for the heads up OP.

It was one per email-linked account per release of vouchers and there were several releases per day!

(eg if you had 12 accounts and there were 5 releases on Monday, you could theoretically get 60 vouchers that day.....if lightening fast fingers!......then do the same thing the next day with the 12 accounts, then the next.....)

Not really, you order two games then post them off?
Less hassle than making multiple bespoke accounts and clicking away.

You have to join to buy, it's free to join and you can buy games without a subscription.

For roughly £400 net profit it was more hassle to click a few buttons to make some accounts? Really?

It was less hassle to search for games (by clicking buttons), order games (by clicking buttons), receive games, arrange to trade them-in (by clicking buttons), physically post the games? For all of £23. Interesting

Vast majority of people got £5 (If they were lucky), this is less hassle and you're getting a bit more money to spend, the equivalent of buying two bespoke offers vouchers. It might be more hassle to some one that abused the bespoke offer; but the bast majority of people got one or missed out.

No need to search for the games, they're already there with links.

Plus there's no reason why you couldn't do the bespoke offer and this.

If you break it down that way you've still got to click buttons and search for the multiple accounts that were created.

So your suggestion is to wait for a chance of getting a bespoke voucher; even though everyone is able to do this now?

You can do this along side all of those for extra benefit. . . . . .

If checking in store pick the best condition you can find.
The games I've got from boomerangrentals have all been like new.

Seems like a bit of effort but essentially money for nothing and beats working... Hot from me.

good but need another as they have passed.

any other similar trade ins??
