GameStop $20 Trade-In Promotion: What Qualifies?
We don't always get what we want for Christmas. We don't always get what we want for birthdays or other special occasions that typically prompt the giving the gifts.
So maybe your mother or your significant other got you a game but without consulting you first; maybe she only asked the register biscuit behind the counter, "what's the most popular game out there right now?", and you ended up with a duplicate copy, or something you just don't want. These things happen. And usually, due to GameStop's stricter return policy (this ain't the '90s, anymore), you're often stuck with the trade-in credit, which could very well suck. Well, GameStop is running a special trade-in promotion through January 10 and as you can see, a whole lot of titles will net you $20 in store credit. Normally, this type of trade-in value is only reserved for new titles that have only been out for a few months, but there are plenty of older games on the list...and yeah, a bunch of crappy games, too. If you've got a few duds in your collection you wish to unload but have been reluctant due to the low trade-in value, check it out and see if you can suddenly cash in. All you need is three to get yourself a brand new $60 game for free. Or, you can put it all towards the purchase of another badly needed accessory; everyone needs more than one controller these days, right?
The trade-in values for GameStop seem to have been declining in recent years, but maybe that's just me. I'd definitely try to take advantage of this.
