From the consumer standpoint, trading in games can often times feel like a complete ripoff. It’s a little frustrating to pay $60 for a game and only receive a fraction of the game back based on the company’s perspective.
If you’ve been holding off from trading games recently, then this week holds the perfect opportunity for you. Gamestop & Best Buy are battling it out this week to see who has the best trade-in values. Each respective company will be offering a %50 trade-in bonus on every single game you trade-in.
If you happen to be a Power-Up Rewards member, you’ll be able to earn an additional 10%. Best Buy Gamers Club members will also be able to earn an additional 10% on their trade-ins. Each additional 10% increase for the respective stores will allow gamers to have up to 60% extra on each game that they trade-in.
The deal will run for Gamestop through April 1st and Best Buy through the 31st of March. With a ton of games launching later this year, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the deal. Even if you’re not sure as to what you want to pre-order, it’s a great time to get that extra credit to save for later in the year.
What do you think about the huge trade-in events for both Gamestop and Best Buy? Are you planning on taking advantage of either this week? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or discuss video games in our forums.
