It’s been a long time coming but we have finally decided that we will be taking in your unwanted DVDs for cash as well as your unwanted games. The new beta version of our pricing system has launched which means we can price your DVDs in real time giving you a quote for how much they are worth.
This has meant for now a couple of minor changes and problems for existing users. If you wish to use the new service for pricing games and dvds, you will need to re-register with your email address for the selling sections of the site. We are looking to combine the two (old and new in due course) but we were keen to get the service up and running so that you could start selling your games and dvds to us.
Our new pricing system also requires you to add the barcodes on the back of the products when you search for them – we appreciate that this may take a little longer than typing in the name of the product and we are developing tools to allow you to search by title as well in due course.
In the meantime, we are now buying DVDs and Games and Blu-rays so grab those items, and start typing in those barcodes!
The weather is cold, far too cold – as a result, we are sure more time is being spent inside rather than outside, and more time is being spent playing those games that have been gathering dust next to your console.
We have been doing the same – during this process, we realized that there are plenty of games that are more recent that we would like to sell and when we looked on our database of games to sell, a fair few of these were missing on the database. So over the next couple of days, we will be taking a look at the database and making sure we are up to date and adding those titles on to the site.
At the same time, the decision has been made to stop buying in games on the older generation consoles such as the Nintendo Gamecube, Sony Playstation 2 and the Microsoft Xbox.
From later on this week, we will be buying games for the following consoles –
More to follow and we will let you know when all the more recent titles are up to date and available to buy from us and also for you to trade-in.
In the meantime, keep warm and keep playing!
It’s coming up to christmas, we know how expensive that can get – so we thought now would be the time to get all your unwanted and neglected games and sell them to us at tradeyourgames.co.uk.
We turn those games into cash and you can then use this cash to buy other games as christmas gifts or alternatively take the cash and buy those gifts from elsewhere.
Check out the sell games section of our site to find out how it works and in the meantime, good luck with the christmas shopping!
It’s been very nice summer weather the last couple of days in Tradeyourgames towers – makes us want to sit in the sun rather than do things game related!
However, with the summer holidays, we feel now may be the time for you to find out what games you have to sell, turn them into cash and use that cash to either buy more games to play when the weather inevitably goes british and rainy again, or indeed use that cash on your holidays abroad in the sun!
The tradeyourgames refer a friend scheme is now live and up and running!
We want you to tell your friends about us and spread the word about tradeyourgames. In return, we will reward both you and your friends in cash if they decide to sell their games to us. Some questions we think you may have -
What do I get out of telling my friends?
If you use our scheme to tell your friends (which you can do through facebook, twitter, email or however you wish to do so) – we will pay you 5% of the total amount of order values that your friends send in to us. This is a thank you for introducing them to tradeyourgames. You will receive this 5% only when your friends have sent in the games to us and also only when they click on your unique referral link or your post on facebook/twitter that we help you create.
Your tradeyourgames account will be credited with the amount once we have received their orders and we will notify you by email when this has been done. You can choose to use this to buy items on the site or simply request payment to you by cheque or bank transfer. You can tell as many friends as you wish (facebook post with the link is a quick and easy way of telling them) and we will track all these transactions for you and make payment when they send in their games.
What do my friends get out of it?
Other than the fact that they get to find out about us, and we pay them cash for their games and consoles – we will offer them 5% extra cash on the amounts quoted on the site for their first order when they send in their games to us. Everyone is a winner.
You can pass on your referral link to as many friends as you wish. Please refrain from spamming them as they may decide they dont want to be your friends after that!
Sounds great, how do I sign up?!
Click here to take you to our refer a friend scheme sign up page.
You will be asked to provide your email address so we can track the order, and will then be provided with your referral links to give to your friends so that they get 5% extra when they use us and you get 5%. You will also be emailed your referral link (keep this safe for further recommendations to friends!) and also be given the chance to recommend to your friends with one click by facebook, twitter or an email. We will even help you write the email but it might make sense to personalise the message.
After due consideration, tradeyourgames has decided that it will no longer accept multiple copies of the same title in the same order from the same customer.
This site is designed for consumers and end users rather than trade sellers and therefore multiple copies of the same game will no longer be accepted.
Any orders where a customer decides to sell multiple copies and sends them in will be contacted by the customer service team and they will be asked for their return address for these additional items. The cost of postage is to be borne by the customer and this will be agreed before sending back (at the cost of £1.50 per game/blu-ray).
The terms and conditions have been updated and this is relevant for all transactions made after the 14th July 2011.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
In the meantime, keep on gaming!
After many years waiting for Duke Nukem Forever, its finally come out on the 10th June 2011! The last Duke Nukem game released was in 1996 and has clearly progressed this time from the graphics and gameplay that were available in the 1996 game.
You can trade-in your other games to purchase a used Duke Nukem Forever for both the PS3 or Xbox 360 but you can also trade-in your copy of Duke Nukem Forever once you have completed it – the quicker you complete your video games, the more trade-in you receive for these games. Currently this weekend, you can get cash for your Duke Nukem Forever games of over £23 for both consoles.
Infamous 2 is now finally out on the PS3 – the smash hit sequel to the infamous game released in 2009.
As always at tradeyourgames, we want to help you play these games and get the best value out of your gaming – so if you want to buy these games, there are plenty of places you can buy the games from as well as us. Similarly, if youve played it and completed Infamous 2 or indeed have an old copy of Infamous, simply come to tradeyourgames and sell us your Infamous game for cash. The current trade-in price available in cash is a handsome £20 as the 11th June 2011 but as always, you need to be quick to get this trade-in price as prices move regularly.
Sell your copy of Infamous 2 to tradeyourgames for cash today.
Sell your games for cash – in a nutshell that is what tradeyourgames allows you to do. You have games that you no longer want or play, we want to pay cash for those games.
By selling your games to tradeyourgames, we give you the cash to spend on all other important things in life, not just gaming. Of course, you could use this cash to buy more games from us or indeed elsewhere!
How easy is it to get cash for your games?
All you have to do is grab all the games you have that you no longer play, go to the sell-trade-in section of our site, type in the name or even better the barcode at the back of the game and we will bring back a price that we would pay in cash for your games. Keep on adding those games and see the balance rise.
Once you are done, simply check out and you will be given instructions as to where to send those games. We test them to check that they are in good condition and then issue payment to your account by cheque or by bank transfer.
It’s that simple… why not grab those games now and sell them to tradeyourgames for cash today?!
One of the issues we found before we started Tradeyourgames was that there wasnt really anywhere online that allowed us to see how much our games were worth in terms of trade-in or indeed cash.
The only way to find out was to try and phone the local game store but they would only provide indicative trade-in quotes for a couple of games and insist on us coming instore to find out the quote.
Transparency is key in our opinion – that is why you can log into tradeyourgames.co.uk and by searching in our sell box – you will find out how much tradeyourgames pays in cash for your video games across all consoles. Simply search by title in the sell box or instead use our sellwizard which allows you type in the barcodes in bulk and find out how much we will pay in cash for your games.
Then you can make the decision as to whether you want to trade-in your games to us, or try the high street
