Having an interest in video games is considered a hobby for most people. This includes dedicated gamers because only a few people in the world receive compensation for playing video games.
With this in mind, it becomes more difficult to pay for everything we would want as a gamer.
Many of us resort to buying games from friends, searching the Internet for online deals and waiting patiently for holiday presents.
These methods of buying games at a cheaper price falter due to the limitations of what is available. In order to have a wide selection of games to purchase and stay within a budget — you may have to sell your games.
For many years, selling games was only used to make quick cash to get out of a bind. Even in today’s society, it is difficult to get your money’s worth from getting rid of your prized possessions.
The best option to selling is to trade in games to stores that will give you bonus credit.
GameStop is the leading company in video game trading and it contains the largest selection of video games for purchase. Their stores are located everywhere in America, and most individuals have come across one at some point. The nearest locations in this area are Zebulon, Louisburg and Wake Forest.
Trading video games in GameStop has a list of benefits depending on membership. Anyone can trade games with their basic package given free to everyone. They will offer you cash and a higher amount for store credit. This system of trading is called PowerUp Rewards.
As an added benefit, your purchases accumulate PowerUp Rewards points that can be exchanged for a wide range of products. For no additional cost, you can take home gaming gear for just shopping regularly.
There is a Pro membership offered at $14.99 annually which has upgraded features. Trade-in games receive 10 percent bonus credit and you get 10 percent off purchases of pre-owned products, excluding consoles. PowerUp Rewards points receive a 10 percent bonus boost also.
To make sure you get the most value, GameStop adds in a one-year subscription to Game Informer which details current news in the gaming world.
If you are willing to part ways with your games, it is possible you could purchase multiple titles with no out-of-pocket expenses. My best advice is to stick strictly to pre-owned because of the discounts you receive.
However, trading video games is not a solution for everyone. If you like to keep a collection then this process would be of no benefit. For others, this is a great way to continue a gaming habit without breaking the bank.
