PlaySwitch.com is running a promotion where new members get
1 trade credit, and $5 credit to order 1 free used PC or Video game.
Shipping is free on every game.

This is a game trading site similar to Goozex.

The selection is mostly older titles, and not the greatest,
and seems to be better for last-gen games.
But for free, who can complain? ;)


See the banner on the left side:
http://www.playswitch.com/

It's quite tedious to search through the games though....
I picked up Tiger Woods 06 for the 360.

After you get your token,
you have to enter the promo code from your confirmation e-mail.

I'm signing up now. Want a ref, OP? I don't mind- I'm really only in it for the free game, anyway. XP

EDIT: I found it. You would need to PM your e-mail address for it.
But if you don't want to, that's ok.

PM'd. Also, do you have to pay shipping or anything? That would kill the deal for me if it does. :/

Signing up.

I really wish I could find a site (besides GTZ and sometimes here) that trades original\color Gameboy games.

I'm ryanflucas on Steam and PSN, feel free to add me. Checkout my eBay and my Game Boy Collection.

SWEET. :D I'm looking through some of the DS games now, and there are some VERY decent selections, even at 5 sbucks, or whatever they're called. Considering you can get another 5 for 5 real dollars, I'd say there are some really good used deals to be found... Unless shipping OUTSIDE the promo kills it. XP

Yeah, I think the way the site is set up is a little deceptive,
the prices aren't always what they say....I think it's more of a "suggested" price.

Okay, I see how it works. Someone has to be offering the game at 5 sbucks for you to get it at that price. Just because it's listed doesn't mean it's in stock or at that price. :/

Yeah, you can narrow it down on the side by "Most Available" under "sort results"...
That's what I ended up doing.

It doesn't really look like any of the non-sports/good games are actually on sale by anyone.

Actually, I just found this out- under where it normally says "All Games" you can scroll down to "Available Only." That should shorten searching quite a bit. :P

Goozex has been really slow for me lately so I thought this would be a nice backup site, but I really don't like PlaySwitch's system. Too complicated. Makes you appreciate Goozex's simplicity so much more. Eventhough some members want to, I really hope Goozex doesn't implement such a name-your-own-price model.

Very very true, only last gen console I have is an xbox and the trade list is a wasteland. Spent 15 minutes looking for an actual 5 point offer and didn't find one. The website is really not set up well. Who cares what the suggested price is? Show what people are willing to sell for. Maybe I'm missing something in the UI.

Thanks for the post OP.

I found a few PC games that were like 6 and 5, I put a bid on both, hope atleast one seller accepts. Guys, you can put in a bid, even if it's lower than what the seller wants. Hell, who knows. Maybe they've been sitting on the game for awhile and will just want to offload it for a bit less.

Very few games were five credits, but it's a nice offer offer on some of the older stuff. Thanks, OP!

For those who just can't find any, I saw Killer7 for PS2, Tony Hawk's American Wasteland for Xbox, and SSX Tricky for Gamecube for 5. I've always wanted to play SSXT... :P Thanks, OP!

DAng. I'm not figuring out how this site worls at all.
But for a free game, I'll work on it.

EDIT: Figured it out. Stupid me trying to open stuff in a new tab. *facepalm*
Found a PS2 platformer.
