I use to work at GameStop
The company gives you less than half or slim to nothing for what you even paid for.
And will price it more to make a profit. It really is a gross system in my opinion. But hey it like what Rick says "This is a business." lololol

When i worked at game station (a British version of Game stop) a guy bought bioshock 2 at the day of release, he then came back the next day to trade it in because he didn't like it, we gave him £15 for a game he bought for £42 a day earlier....then we put a £39.99 sticker on it and sold it within the same day. Trade in stores are assholes, if you want to sell your games sell them online, you will get more money for them.

As a Gamestop employee, nothing pisses me off more than people who think that I set the prices for trade ins. I scan the game's barcode, and the computer tells me what you get. I have no control over the price, and if I change it, I get fired.

Get mad at the company, not the employees.

I work at Gamestop, it's really not as awful as everyone thinks, say you bought a game, it's an awful game, you have 7 days to return that game if it's from the pre-owned section.
We don't make enough money to give you full price back for the games, we'd be out of business. We do sometimes give you good deals, and also if you use it towards a game or a console, it takes off some money for what you really want.
I dunno, I love working there, and I know a dollar for a game sucks, but we're just trying to stay open. :/
Where else would you rather go, Walmart?

I've returned open games to Walmart.
Maybe it's just mine but they don't really give a **** if you have the receipt.

I don't get how you can get such a bad price. I get between 10 and 30 USD PER GAME.

look at it this way, you buy a brand new game, a day later return it and they give you $20. theyre considering the worst case scenario where the game stays in the store takes up shelf space and price drops eventually to around $20. if they bought it for a higher price theyre risking losing money on it. but these days you have so much access to information about a game on the internet, not to mention renting a game, so if you are hasty enough to drop $60 on a new game without researching it its your own fault.
