Fancy nabbing a bunch of Saints Row 3 passes and codes to sell online for absolutely nothing? Right this way good sir...
Games are investments, soaking up precious time and money. But this Christmas, there's a way you can make the system work for you, and it all begins with three letters...CEX.
Now we all know that CEX can be a little hit and miss, but there's nothing stopping you playing the high street markets like a fiddle and trying to make yourself a little bit of money. Whether game companies like it or not, the pre-owned market is still alive and kicking...sort of...and there's still demand for copies and codes that can be turned to an advantage. Just follow these steps:
- Buy Saints Row: The Third for £19.99 from Gamestation.
- Remove all of the delicious codes from inside.
- Waltz down to your local CEX and sell said game for £20 cash (We Buy price correct at time of writing). CEX offer offline products anyway so the codes won't be missed.
- Sell your stockpile of codes on eBay for anything between £3-£9 a pop.
One or two things to note - Gamestation tend to operate a policy whereby you can only purchase 6 of the same items (stock willing) if you go in-store. Online, though, you can put as many in as you like in your basket. CEX allow you to sell up to 5 online straightaway, but any more and you'll have to talk to their customer services department. In-store, there's no limit, but it's always wise to ring up and verify that they're offering cash.
