amazon logoProving once more that Amazon wants to be your “go to” store for everything, they are now accepting trade-ins on used video games.

In an unexpected turn of events, Amazon has opened up a video game trade-in store where you can trade in your used games for Amazon gift cards.  You simply tell them what games you have to trade-in, they tell you a total value, give you a pre-paid mailing label for you to send them in, and once they receive them you will get an Amazon gift card that you may use on any products you want.

What they will do with the games is a mystery as Adam Ostrow of Mashable accurately pointed out, Amazon does not currently have a used video game store.  Perhaps they will be opening one, or are they selling them to other retailers?  It is anyone’s guess at this point.

Currently you can trade-in games for the following systems.

  • Microsoft Xbox
  • Microsoft Xbox 360
  • Nintendo DS
  • Nintendo Game Boy Advance
  • Nintendo GameCube
  • Sony Playstation 2
  • Sony Playstation 3
  • Sony PSP
  • Nintendo Wii

While you might get more money selling them on your own through eBay or Amazon’s used option, this removes a lot of work and headaches for you.  Certainly this is a new option for a lot of people with growing video game collections.

    To date there hasn't been anyone the size of Amazon to offer this type of service to consumers – I believe Amazon will iterate their offering (as well as other successful buyback sites) to add more benefits and successfully differentiate from Gamestop’s in-store trading. Gamestop has recently said that online trading will fail. This is like Blockbuster saying that Netflix will fail because why would people want to receive new movies in the mail rather than go to their local Blockbuster store – we now know how that story line has played out.

    Though buyback sites have been around since 1996/97 (with the debut of SecondSpin.com) this category of ecommerce (consumer to business) has been a sleeping giant. No one with any significant resources to date has offered consumers the type of service that really compels consumers to trade online in the numbers consumers do with online ecommerce or rental of movies through Netflix type services. With Amazon’s entry this sleeping giant of an online commerce segment will wake up and challenge brick and mortar stores (who trade) like ecommerce did with brick and mortar for the last 10+ years. Game on!

    Disclosure – Buybak.com provides a buyback software platform as a service for online retailers.

    Reacting and responding will keep your body from a plateau.

    Now you already know what can affect this fat loss, but

    maybe yourself not sure whether you can do this or not.

    Sunlight on un-protected skin produces a highly usable form

    of Vitamin D that lasts twice as long in your bloodstream as when you consume it through food or

    a supplement, but you still need caution

    due to the risk of skin cancer.

    plateau. Now you already know what can affect this fat loss, but maybe

    yourself not sure whether you can do this or not. Of course, you should

    always consult your doctor for a thorough evaluation and prescription.

    However, by early next morning, in most cases you will

    notice that your weight has considerably dropped

    compared to where it was the previous night.

    If the your body fat is above 25% but below 30% (Women) or above 20% but below 25%

    ( Men) then you are overweight, you are carrying more fat around than

    you need or that is healthy for you and it probably means you are eating too

    much of the wrong foods. Protein is needed daily for lean muscles and they

    need to be taken daily in small amounts.

    Reacting and responding will keep your body from

    a plateau. Aping Schwarzenegger, well, not as the

    ‘Governator’ but as the ‘muscled machine’ has been a traditional phenomenon that has

    been in practice among the ‘bulk yearning’ youth of the past three decades.

    Using a appetite suppressant will help to prevent hunger, which could result in you eating more cheat meals than you should.

    Onlу children are experts at getting their own way, and they’ll do it every chance they get.

    It feels as if there is something missing in our lives.

    While this in ѕome ways iѕ exciting as you experience a completelу different way of life, it can also be very alienating аnd lonely.

    When pesticides enter the soil, they kill the

    tiny micro organisms present in the soil that are important for keeping the soil

    healthy. The only product with Guaranteed Measurable Results or Your Money Back.
