Are you craving some new video game action this Christmas? If so, take a look around your TV. Do you have a pile of old games you don’t play anymore, or a few old game consoles? These items might be worth something. You can use this as an opportunity to clear out the old while making money for the new: a win-win!
Where can you sell your old stuff? Here are some of the best websites where you can sell your old games and consoles. (Please note some of these sites are international where others are country specific)
This one is pretty standard. Many people look to Craigslist to sell their unwanted stuff. Simply post the item description, price, and a picture in the classified section. For example, if you wanted to sell playstation 3, you would simply list an ad for it in the classified section, along with a description, price and photo. The only downside to Craigslist is that it does not just list gaming devices, so you’ll have to compete with all the other sections and you might not get noticed. But on the plus side, you get to set your own price.
You can list your products and then sit back and watch people bite on them. The only problem is that the bidding process can take a while.
It’s also possible to sell items through Amazon.com, which lists affiliate sites for secondhand selling through their Marketplace. Many sellers report a positive experience with Amazon and also that they can score the best prices. Amazon also has a trade-in program where you can get credit to purchase the newest products on Amazon directly.
As well as being a place where you can sell old games, Spun also lets you connect with other sellers and trade at no cost for using the site. You can also find CDs and DVDs here.
Music Magpie is a site based in the UK that will allow you to sell CDs, DVDs, games and consoles, as well as high-end electronics like iPads and laptops. They also offer a free courier service.
Gamepawn is known as the preferred choice for those with classic games and consoles to sell. If many of your items are older, this may be able to sell for higher prices here.
This site buys up old games and consoles and then distributes them at various retail locations. You can also sell your products for store credit if you prefer.
This site, also scoring high marks for being user-friendly, has become popular with sellers who want to quickly sell a lot of items for quick cash. It can also be a good choice for people who are looking to upgrade and want to make sure their old things are recycled. All you need to do is send them a list of what you want to get rid of, and they’ll send you a total of how much they’re willing to pay and packing materials so you can ship your items to them. At this time, Gazelle only takes console games (no PC games).
Don’t let your old junk sit around gathering dust. Instead, sell it today and make room for the new releases this Christmas!
