GameStop offers top trade-in dollars for pre-owned consumer electronics or video game hardware

GRAPEVINE, Texas, 2017-May-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — What do the iPhone 7, GameStop and Costa Rica have in common? If you trade-in an iPhone 7 today, GameStop will give you up to $355 – enough to help purchase a round-trip flight for one to Costa Rica.*

GameStop, a global family of specialty retail brands that makes the most popular technologies affordable and simple, knows that the summer vacation season is just around the corner and families may be looking for ways to earn some extra money to help fund their summer vacation fun. To help with this effort, GameStop is inviting families to trade-in their used or unused, new or pre-owned, and working or non-working consumer electronics or video game hardware to receive top dollars for their items.

“Summer is a great time to make a profit off all your electronics and gaming hardware clutter so you can earn quick cash to spend toward summertime fun,” said John Tovar, vice president of Pre-Owned Merchandising for GameStop. “Trading in electronics like iPhones and iPads, as well as gaming hardware can add up to Costa Rican or Vegas vacations, concert or amusement park tickets and even gas to go on a summer road trip. Whatever your vacation plans are, GameStop can help you fund your summertime fun.”

GameStop’s trade-in program accepts thousands of items, including a wide range of video games and systems, mobile phones, tablets and electronics accessories. GameStop also accepts damaged or broken items, even if they don’t work anymore.

Top Phone and Electronics Up-To-Trade Values Include:

  • iPhone 7 = $355 to spend toward a round trip flight for one to Costa Rica*
  • iPhone 6s = $245 to spend on a round trip flight for one to Las Vegas*
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 = $120 to purchase two or more services at a spa
  • iPad Mini = $165 to rent a bouncy house for a child’s birthday party
  • iPad Touch = $70 to spend towards a summer concert ticket

Top Console Up-To-Trade Values Include:

“We’re not just talking pocket change,” Tovar continued. “GameStop’s trade-in program pays top dollar for many items. For example, our average trade value across all iPhone versions is $126 and goes all the way up to nearly $400 for newer models.”

If customers don’t have a specific goal in mind on their trade dollars – like a vacation – they can always use their funds to get the newest game console like the Nintendo Switch that can be used to play games both at home during a “stay-cation” or on the go. Also, now through May 28th, GameStop is offering customers an extra 50% bonus in either cash or in-store credit for any pre-owned consumer electronic item they trade in.
