    Doesn't sound really profitable but hey the extra money is better off in your pocket then theirs.

    I work for the Australian equivalent of Gamestop but I only care about my pay not them so hey if you can make extra $$$ I say do it. I actually try to not buy any 2nd hand copies for my shop because we pay too much, HQ puts too high price tag back on them, (Less then 3 months & they want just $5 less then the brand new copies. Then I have to sit on them & eventually sell them in pre-owned sales for less then what we paid for them. The preowned industry might suit the EB's in city areas with lots of people coming through everyday. but I work in a rural country store & know most of my customers by name & there is just no demand for them, I ship em to the city stores now.

    Gamestop has a 50% extra trade in thing going right now, plus 10% if you are PowerUp Pro so that may be the cause.

    Yeah we have something very similar to them giving discounts to our EB Carrot Card Holders & special deals & shit. Every carrot represents $1 spent on brand new games, preowned titles give you 2 carrots for every $1 spent & we sometimes send store opinion surveys & award 20 Carrots for taking part in it. I got my level 4 card but I spend a shitload of money on games & stuff.
