Trade-ins will​ receive additional bonus in-store credit through April 28th

GameStop has been branching out of just selling games for some time now, and it may not be widely known that they accept smart phone trade-ins when buying new devices from them. Today the retail chain is expanding the number of devices capable of being traded in, as well as giving some extra incentives for those trade-ins. GameStop will now take "popular handsets" from Samsung, Motorola, BlackBerry and other brands and give instant cash or in-store credit.

For those opting for the in-store credit option, you'll receive additional value of $10 to $50 on top of what you'd normally get for the device. PowerUp Rewards Pro members will receive even more in-store credit for trade-ins. If you're interested to see what GameStop will offer you for your device, head to the source link below.

Ripoff. Guy in front of me about 5 months ago was selling his iPhone 4 to them. They told him $60, I told him I'll give you $70. Took it home, put it on craigslist and sold it the next day for $160.

Can't see why anyone would want to do this. my phone is valued at $25-$50 but being that gamestop is so gracious they'll offer me a $10 valuation. I'm not good at math but something doesn't add up with these numbers. i'll pass
