    Default Gamespot's iOS Device Trade-in Program Enjoys Fast Start


    Gamestop’s prowess in the realm of pre-owned games is well-known, but their recent foray into iOS device trade-ins has been a resounding success according to the company.

    “The velocity of this trade program has exceeded our expectations stated GameStop. We expect to see strong post-holiday traffic as customers trade in older models that were replaced by gifts.” — GameStop president Tony Bartel
    Those looking to utilize Gamestop’s trade in program can receive up to $65 for an iPod Nano, up to $180 for an iPod Touch, up to $300 for an iPhone, and up to $400 for an iPad. The trade in values fluctuate depending on make, model, and the condition of the device. To trade in a iDevice owners must take their old devices to their local Gamstop, and have it “appraised” by a sales associate before collecting store credit or cash.

    Gamestop does have a list of iDevices they will not accept:


    • iPodŽ, iPhoneŽ or iPadŽ devices with dents, severe scratches or personal engravings on the casing are NOT accepted.
    • iPodŽ, iPhoneŽ or iPadŽ devices with cracked or severely scratched screens are NOT accepted.
    • iPodŽ, iPhoneŽ or iPadŽ devices that are defective, will not power on OR which the screen is not readable are NOT accepted.
    • iPodŽ, iPhoneŽ or iPadŽ devices with water damage are NOT accepted.
    Expect to get less cash and more store credit for your devices, and expect Gamestop associates to try to lowball the value of your iDevice. But, for those with an older iPod sitting around, or those unwilling to re-gift their aging products getting a few hundred dollars for something you don’t use isn’t a bad deal. But, for those with well conditioned iPads, iPad 2s, and iPhones, it might be more lucrative to sell their old devices themselves.

    Lol gamespot! I'm heading there right now!

    I think 150 for an iPod touch is a great deal if you want a fast sale, or you can hold out in eBay or craigslist for 20 more bucks.

    eBay gets a commission so how much would YOU get if you sold your iPhone for $300 on eBay?
