Selling / exchanging games to CEX for voucher

Hi,
I have a couple of quick questions regarding selling games to CEX in exchange for their vouchers.

I've noticed that they advertise the price that I can sell the game for on their website, my main question would be that is that the guaranteed price? Can I just walk into the store with the game and get the advertised price? would there be any negotiating as such involved here?

In addition, on the website its possible to add this item in the 'selling' cart but it asks for my address. Not sure why. Regardless, would it be possible to complete the selling of the item online and then take it into the store myself?

The only reason I'm asking for all these details is because I had somewhere here that they sometimes refuse to take in certain games if they're loaded with stock (for example many people giving FIFA 17 after the recent Black Friday deals etc.). Hence my query.

Last question, Is it possible to 'combine' a couple of smaller denomination vouchers and pay for a single game?

Appreciate your help!

Don't take the following as Gospel, but, the price is the price so long as there is no damage, you can combine as many vouchers as you like to purchase higher value items, I have heard of them refusing games if they have loads, but can't say for definite, hope its helped, a bit!

the prices on the website are honoured for 10 days, tho only on sales orders you place online,

i dont know if you can take an online sales order in store or not (personally never tried) tho i would think you should be able to

as long as the games are new and mint, buy to sell they wont try to get a lower price, unless you try to give them bulk orders of the same item, the word bulk will be desided by them, as i recently learnt with the 18 chromecasts i tryed to sell them online that they online wanted to pay me £11 for every one after the first one at £20

The reason they ask for an address when you add to cart online is if they reject a game for whatever reason they can send it back to you.

The adding to cart online and selling and dropping into store doesn't work like that.. You can either sell online and get that price or take it to the store, but not a mix of both.

Thanks for the prompt response, guys. By selling online, I take it take it means using a mailing / delivery service who will be sending the games to CEX?

In that case, slightly off-topic, but can you please explain what would be the best / cheapest way to get the games to CEX? Royal mail vs Collect+ ?

Awesome, thanks!

I would never send them anything as they then have complete control. I'd just go in store

Can you please elaborate what you mean by complete control? Reason I'm asking is that if I were to just walk into the store, then I'd guess they won't try to match the prices shown online. I've never exchanges / traded in games before so not sure how things go.

However, on this website, I typically see people referring to CEX's online (selling) prices hence my confusion.

​they will match their prices online, they always do. you can also get GAME to price match and add a pound if you would prefer credit there and you have one near by.
what I mean is when they receive your items they may class it differently and offer a lower price

Thanks for the comments folks. Went to CEX a couple of days back and they just offered the same price as shown online so got the voucher immediately.

Just a quick question, CEX told me that the voucher is only valid for a week. Is that correct? I thought they'd be valid for longer.
