I received an email from Gamefly saying that they are testing a new trade-in system.

Not sure how good their trade-in values are but the following might not make the program as appealing -

- Member is responsible for all shipping and packaging costs associated with trade-in orders, including returned items.

- Trade-In Credits are only applicable to GameFly monthly membership fees.

You've been selected to participate in our new GameFly Trade-In Program. Now you can trade in the games you own for credit toward your GameFly membership fees. Trade in as many games as you want, and stack up the GameFly Credits!

The Trade-In Program guidelines are as follows:

• Prices offered for trade-in games are valid for 10 days. If your order is not received within 10 days, it may be subject to repricing.

• We can accept up to five games in each trade-in order.

• We can not accept more than three copies of the same game.

• Trade-In Credits will be deposited in your account as soon as your order has been inspected and accepted. Credits will automatically be applied to your next monthly billing.

• Trade-In Credits are only applicable to GameFly monthly membership fees.

• Member is responsible for all shipping and packaging costs associated with trade-in orders, including returned items.

• All items submitted for trade-in must be packaged together with the original disc, case, and manuals and be in good working condition.

• All trade-in items in a single order must be shipped together in one package with the packing slip included.

• Not all games are available for trade-in. Games available for trade-in will be determined by GameFly at our sole discretion.

• For the purposes of estimating your shipping costs, the zip code you will ship your Trade-In orders to is: 21093.

See the Complete Trade-In Program Terms of Use for more details.

I got the email like two months ago. Thought about sending them some of the junk I just can't get rid of, but still haven't bothered.

Now playing: Gears of War: Judgment, Fire Emblem

I didn't get it, but it sounds like a good deal to me, especially since GameFly's membership is too much for me (since I rent about two games a month), but if I could trade-in older games, or stuff I don't play anymore, then that would be great for me - but alas, no e-mail.

I got this months ago, as well. In fact, when someone posted it around the same time I got it, members actually replied that they had gotten the e-mail months before that, so I really don't know how old this program is. Nonetheless, at the time when I checked, some of their values were inline with GameStop, give or take a buck or two. Wouldn't be a terrible thing to maybe dumb some crap on them, if they take it.

sucks gamefly has droppe the price on some of these

magical starsign is now like 6 bucks.... casino is now like 6


i hope to pick up 2 or 3 cheap games off goozex everymonth and try to trade them in and get a free month of gamefly... since this 44 bucks will pay for may and june i have a little bit of time to try to pick up some games....

you should try to ship 3 or 4 games at a time so the shipping isnt that bad .....


If your a risk taker they got a poker game for the xbox ALL IN .... Goozex 300 pts with 2 ready to ship... gamefly paying 23.00

easy way to get a month free but i bet that price drops like a rock very soon

This has actually been in beta for quite some time. Their prices are all right, but generally seem to be only a few dollars more than GS, which is then negated by shipping.

I honestly don't know, but I remember getting an e-mail about the program last year. Even then, someone posted a thread about it, and other people said it was old.

I was invited on March 17th.

I check prices on stuff every once and a while and the trade-in values are pretty much equal to GameStop, BUT you have to pay the shipping.

I would definitely use it if they would let you use your trade-ins towards game purchases since I get 10% off already and 5 GF dollars every few months, but you can only use the trade-in towards your subscription. :/

its been going on for at least 2 to 3 years now JUST IN BETA

i joined back on APRIL 2008 and have a year free. i get cheap games off goozex and trade them in.


THOUGH The price is only good on NORMAL Membership price. Meaning if you buy a discounted prepaid plan it wont work. like the 20% off or buy 1 month get 1 free. your credit wont work

its mostly in Beta for the last year so many people are not in it. I been in it since May and love it.

if you can find some Cheap games you can make a killing

They was giving 24.00 for World series of poker 2007 for the xbox 360

ebgames was selling this new for 10 or used for 8 ( around 7 after eb edge)

i got around 150 bucks for less then 50 out of pocket.

i been grabbing 100 pt games off goozex and dumping them to gamefly for 8 to 12 each.

I would think the prices are about the same on most of the games. depends on how badly gamefly needs the games

Didn't see this posted anywhere, please ignore if I missed it.

Gamefly is now accepting used games towards your monthly subscription fees. Did you get in on that Alone in the Dark for 360 for $6.50 shipped? Send it in for $11.50 trade in credit! It's like they paid you $5 for trying it out.

If it didn't take so long for me to get games from them, I would be on this.

Now if we could use trade in credit for their store sales..
