Trading games in at Gamestation = RIP OFF

Hey,

I went into Gamestation and asked how much I'd get if I'd trade in 8 of my Xbox 360 games. They are in perfect condition and he said they would accept the games for £11. I told him where to stick it and left.

Anybody else found that game shops rip you off at trade-ins?

That's a good place yeah?

I took 3 games into Game today. They offered me £32 so I took them across the way to HMV who offered me £45. So Game can stick it from now on!!

[url]www.cex.co.uk[/url] you can check the prices you can get for trade or cash

What games were they?

I can imagine why if it was games like viva pinata, perfect dark etc.

I would take a couple of quid with you as well...Cex have sometimes given me a bit more than it says on the site but more than likely will give you a couple of quid less

I wish I had a CEX near me :x After looking on their website I could get some trade in for a couple of old phones I have lying about.

I have only used CEX once, it was a year ago. I sent them FIFA 08, they credited my account about a week later.

Mate you would get a fair few quid more selling them on here...

I bought Dead Rising the other week for £8.50 Del on here...prob only get about £3 for Fifa but the rest will be worth more


Tally up how much there worth @ CEX and I would stick a FS/FT thread up...as your a newer member I would suggest sending the items first to people with good feedback and I think you should do well

i jus used it last week and got paid today

Last week I took a load of games to town to trade, and was offered £46 trade-in at Gamestation, and £36 trade-in at Blockbusters... I got £52 CASH from CEX - could have got nearly £80 in trade...

Gamestation wouldn't beat CEX's prices, either, even though they have a 'we won't be beaten on trade-ins' policy.

I won't even go to Game out of principle, as they won't price match, and won't give me a receipt for how much they'd give so I can price match elsewhere...

I'm going to try selling them locally before selling them online, I can't be bothered to mess around with post and packaging and payment you see. :thinking:

If you use CEX online do they give cash to bank account or cheque or some other way or do they only do credit to use in their store online?

Also could any credit you did get online be used instore as every couple of months I pass a CEX.

Thanks

if u take a print out of what cex offer gamestation told me they will match it/beat it providing they are not giving more than what they are selling the particular game 4!
