Amazon starts video game trade-in service


Hot damn, you can trade your old crappy video games in to Amazon now and get Amazon gift cards dropped into your account. As someone who buys a lot of crap from, I can best describe my feelings about this as “excited” and “happy”, among others.

Trade-in values appear to be relatively fair, especially for newer games. The Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: World at War, for instance, sells new for $49.99 and carries a trade-in value of $26.50. To get everything kick started, if you trade in games between now and March 19th, you’ll get a 10% coupon code for any single video game or accessory as well.
