Half.com Instant Sale (Trade In Program)
I was looking into trading Resistance 3 and amazon was giving $2.50 so I decided to list the game on half.com. When I went to their site I notice their new program of "Instant Sale" which is exactly the same as amazon.com's trade in program except you can get paid with a half.com gift card (which comes with a 15% trade in bonus) or you can trade your item for paypal cash. A label for free shipping is provided.
Resistance 3 is getting $18 paypal cash which is way more than amazon, best buy or gamestop.
TIV may be worth it on other items... including books, movies and music.
Edit: The easiest way to find the item you want to trade is to search the item as if you want to buy it. When you get to the item page where you can choose which copy you want to buy and click on "Sell My Copy", this will give you the option to either "trade the item" or sell it through the website.
Edit 6/16/12: Right now Sonic Generations (360) is getting $28 paypal cash or $31.xx half.com credit

Also, here's a link to directly contact Half.com's customer support. If their "partner" starts screwing people, they should definitely be made aware of it.

Instant trade = Sell It Now feature they had for awhile.
Someone who wants the title puts in a price they'd auto buy it at...used to be when listing you could take the offer or just continue with listing.
No offer = you'd have to list it as normal

I am shocked nobody has figured it out. I just checked games like Gears of War 3 and it is getting $15.50, Uncharted 3 is getting $23.10, FIFA 12 (PS3) is getting $22.40. Those TIV are very reasonable.

They offered me $31 for Rayman Origins. That's more than MSRP. There's definite potential.
Like video games and bad writing? Then buy my book! Only $.99 for kindle!

I have checked the Instant Sale feature before when selling on half.com, but the offers were always less than I could sell it for. However, I did just get good deal on two games. Sold them Warhammer Space Marine 360 for $16.xx Paypal, and Hulk Hogans Main Event disc only for $10.xx Paypal. Not too shabby since I paid less for each and couldn't sell or trade them anywhere else for more, as far as I could find.
Scars of Life is back in 2012. As heard on the UFC!

Battlefield 3 (PS3) was $16.xx paypal. Couldn't enter my other games for some reason. Thanks OP!

I've sold on Amazon for years, but I'm willing to give this a shot. As a test run, I just sent in three Madden 2012s(one from each console) from that recent bestbuy.com $10 DotD. They all go for $20-$25ish.
To help others out, I'm going to do a trade in value list as I'm scanning my games. And to make it easier for me, this is the half.com credit value, so subtract 15% for actual cash (paypal) value. The default I'm choosing is the games being in like new condition. So to sum it up:
Like new condition
Subtract 15% for actual cash (paypal) value
Bolding anything of interest and/or over $10
Current prices as of 6/6/12
Can only sell what seems to be 10 total times in a quarter of a year, with 10 items per time, so at max 100 items in a quarter, unless I'm reading the FAQ wrong.

I would never do business with half.com. I sent in barely used textbooks to the third party vendor and they would make claims like torn cover, missing pages, unuseable. It would come back with none of there claims and half customer service is useless.
After researching, I notice the vendors are also sellers on half.com. Returns are probably because the value of the item dropped and they are losing their cut.
