Looks like we'll get more for our trade-ins now.
GameStop has confirmed their more appealing, simplified trade-in program, which will begin on August 18.
GameStop senior vice president for pre-owned business, Jason Cochran, said this will ultimately benefit the consumer. Not only can we expect 20 percent more trade per game (on average), but the whole process should be a lot easier:
"What we're doing is we're ripping out a lot of that complexity and being able to show or convey a more straightforward way for customers to understand the true buyback price."
Currently, the system is a little awkward. In order to get the maximum trade-in value for a game, you typically have to apply that credit toward a pre-order or another promotion. However, in a few weeks time, that won't be true. If you're a PowerUp Rewards Pro member, you'll still see that bonus trade-in credit, for instance.
Anything to make my GameStop visit faster would be much appreciated, thanks.
