Amazon.com Launches Service For Videogame Trade-In

Posted Mar 5, 2009

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has launched a videogame trade-in service today.  This allows users to send in used games and receive credit in return.  They can use this credit to buy items from Amazon.com.  “Amazon Video Games Trade-In is a new service that enables you to trade in your games for an Amazon.com Gift Card,” stated the company in their blog.

Customers can use a prepaid shipping label to send videogames to Amazon and then they will receive the credit.  This offering is a direct blow to video game store company GameStop.  GameStop has 6,100 stores in the U.S. and 17 other countries.
