    Does anyone know whether JB HiFi give cash or store credit for trade-ins?

      I think they're all store credit, yo.

        Thanks dawg.

          JB did give cash once but they gave you less cash than the trade value - I assume if they do still give cash (which they probably don't) these values would not be representative of what you'd walk away with.

            JB Hi Fi have NEVER given cash for trade. Closest you'll get with them is a gift voucher. EB Games give cash, 20% less for cash it used to be....

              Gametraders gave cash for their game tradeins. Are they still even open???

                Yes. They've never had a huge number of stores compared to EB, but they are certainly still around.

    GAME also currently have a +55% trade value towards preorders. Very handy for the upcoming busy schedule of game releases.

    I just traded in Bulletstorm and got $55 towards my Gears of War 3 pre order at GAME with their 55% deal. Thing is, I bought Bulletstorm from Ozgameshop for $30... Perhaps I could pay for all my summer games with copies of Bulletstorm???

    Just got back from EB Games, Assassins Creed Brotherhood trades in for $18
