Game price match in store credit as well as cash for games, PS3, XBOX 360 etc + 20% Trade in bonus

Found 11th Nov 2013
People may or may not be aware of this. I knew that Game price matched cash price for games and consoles. I did not know they price matched the in store credit?

Why would this be of benefit? Well I can't be bothered to sell my Xbox and PS3 on ebay, too much hassle. Plus CEX do not sell the PS4 brand new. I pre-ordered my PS4 at my local GAME store.

For example Game offer £60 for a PS3 120GB. However CEX offer £116, massive difference. Similar with a lot of games, CEX offered better in store credit. So all I did was add all my stuff to my online CEX basket, take a screenshot then print off and took down to Game at which point they matched.

If CEX offer less then Game are giving 20% extra on trade ins.

Game have price matched store credit for a long time.

They dont normally match the cash price thou

Extra 20% only when you trade in 3 or more games on selected consoles

'People may or may not be aware of this. I knew that GAME price-matched cash price for games and consoles. I did not know they price matched the in store credit?'

I was under the impression that this was completely the other way round - ie. GAME will always price match for trade but not for cash.

I am yet to find a GAME store that has been able to price-match for cash.

Also, are you sure that they will give you 20% extra..? I thought GAME priced-matches other stores such as CEX then beat that price by £1...

What do you mean by this? The only 20% extra I have seen is from trading in 3 games

Exactly what I did a couple of months ago, liquified all my 360 stuff - they gave me near on £300 store credit for my PS4 fund, whereas without the CEX price match it was nearer £150!

Also the terms and conditions on the site say cash is exluded. It is ultimately down to the store manager though, although they are not meant to price match cash they might. My store price matched cash for me and first he said they don't beat the cash price by £1 only match it, but then the store manager said they do so gave an extra £1. So its worth trying anyway but don't hope too much!

I was on the understanding it was 20% no matter. Might be wrong on that.

Might trade in my 360 and games for credit for a ps4

This isn't true? I went in today to try and trade Pokemon X for cash and they offered £18. I told them CEX give £28 cash and they said they only price match store credit, not cash. This was in Middlesbrough btw

My local in Slough also only match for store credit plus the additional quid.

same in wigan,never matched cash

Store policy is match trade in + £1 but it is at the managers discretion. I.e. they wont give you a tenner for a game they sell for less even if cex etc are offering more. Also they do not match anything for a cash value.

So if I trade in any 3 games on a selected console I would get 20% extra on my whole trade in? If that's the case this is a pretty hot deal ...

It seems to be a bit of a mixed bag with the price matching of cash @ Game, in my experience it depends on what you're trading & how much a particular store wants it.

They recently offered to match the cash price of CEX on a Pokemon soul silver for DS I was trading in, whereas normally they say they can't/don't, so it is worth asking.

Btw you'll need a form of ID if trading in for cash (photo ID is best)

You would be better getting game to price match cex

Example

Fifa 14 - xbox 360

Game give £16 credit

Cex give £28 credit

Depends on the store really, I got £18 credit for Minecraft last month when they sell it for £14.99 pre-owned & £17.99 new. Also I got £17 credit for a DBZ game they were selling for £14.99 pre-owned, £13 for Smash Bros when they sell for £12.99, etc.
