If Goozex is going down, doesn't that also mean that VGFive is probably going down?

Yep.

 

I wouldn't trade on either site until Goozex gets put back online.

I would not send BUT, I would (and have) spend down all my vg credits.

If Goozex goes then unfortunately we have to assume VGFive goes with it since Goozex owns them...and since their domain name is up for renewal later this month the demise of VGFive might be quite soon unfortunately.

I figured they would be back up this week since many businesses were closed during the past two holiday weeks. Since VGFive might be going too, I requested three games to bring my points down to 50. If you guys have points there, check it out because there are quite a lot of games left.

 

Would be a shame if Goozex really is gone. Their exchange program has been terrific for me as I was getting stuff every month (I was set to win Metal Gear Rising next). I also was ready to place feedback for another game I received last week.

Yeah I decided to give Leaptrade a shot because of the promotion. The website looks a lot more cleaner than goozex in my opinion.

May give them a try but after being burned with goozex for year now.. im  a bit hesitant.

Does it work the same way? Seems like they handle the postage??

 

And is goozez officially dead? Guessing we are screwed out of points and in progress trades?

You should definitely at least sign up so you can check out how the site works. The basic trade system is Queue based like Goozex was but they also have a 2nd Instant Trade option where you can browse other traders collections and negotiate offers directly. It is like an Old School Queue Trading Site with a Modern Twist and you only pay for shipping because there are no token fees. The site takes a little getting used to since the look and feel may be different than what you are accustomed to but it is well designed and grows on you the more you use it. In the past few days there have been probably 50 new users signing up, myself included, and many of us have been high volume Gooz/VG5 traders in the past so LeapTrade looks to be on the rise and shows a lot of potential. They also do provide the shipping labels and your first 4 will only be 40 cents each since you trade on Gooz and qualify for the Promo. The management of the site has been very welcoming and are open to new suggestions. Of course any trading site is only as good as the people who trade there which is why I hope you take the LEAP and sign up. Please use my referral if you decide to go for it.  If I see you on there I will be sure to send you a friend request since they also have a great PM system in place.

They're giving goozers $5 and $.40 trades.  Pretty good deal, and it looks like a ton of ex-goozex traders are heading over there.  Give it a go.

goozex is dead (see below), vgfive is in limbo (tainted still owns the actually domain name as he used it way before there was game trading there, but he isn't sure what happens next)

 

anyways,

 

Bay said that Goozex was going to close on December 31st, 2013 in a SEC filing made November 16th, 2012.

 See http://www.otcmarket...ilingID=8961452, Notes To Financial Statements, #6 Subsequent Events 2/3rds down the page.

 

"On November 15, 2012, the Company was acquired by Bay Acquisition Corp (“Bay”). Bay’s common stock trades on over the counter under the symbol “SLGI”. As a result of this transaction, the Company believes that Bay can provide sufficient liquidity to fund the company’s operation through December 31, 2013."

Just realized Goozex is officially dumped like a dead hooker.  Signed up to LeapTrade with 2 caveats:

 

1. No DS games yet? I know they're adding it as part of the retro systems, but it's more relevant than original xbox.

 

2. I don't see any way to see what's being requested other than by starting the request process myself.

had  10k points  and like 3 tokens. 

 

sucks  knowing  i could of got a few more games  (mk for the vita and  rolling for the 3ds)  but  i  made tons of cash off the site.   They really never knew how to run the site.    few months back i got a    WM package  

WWE: WrestleMania - The Complete Anthology, 

 

 

was what i got  i think for  2000 pts but it was missing one of the disc.  I contacted the seller and we worked it out that i would get 200 pts back  to buy the missing disc.  Goozex said it did not work like that and instead they refunded me  my 2000 pts  and the  sellers points and told me to keep the package.     and got a lot more  better crap over the years.

 

sad that  VG is also dead but on the   + side on that side

 

Joined leap  and already sent out 2 games  i doubt i send out anymore until i get stuff in return. i should have around 70 in credit  enough to buy   2  games

Wait, what? I hope the seller got to keep the points for that Wrestlemania Anthology. I'm probably not understanding your story right, but it sounds like you got to keep the item and your points and the seller got nothing. Which sucks.

Leaptrade seems interesting but I don't see the appeal. Half of it works like Goozex (trade games for credits) and the other half is basically like GTZ. 

 

I don't really like GTZ but it's the only site I've used that's actually stuck around without any major hiccups.

not sure if the seller got the points ( i think they did ) but not 100% sure

It's back! Well, almost. I just checked goozex.com and got this

SYSTEM UPDATE, SERVER TOO BUSY, OR UNEXPECTED ERROR

We are doing an important system update or the server is too busy in this moment, and this may cause downtime for a few minutes. We apologize for any inconvenience, and invite you to try again in a short while.

Otherwise, you made an incorrect request to the server. Please use pages links to navigate the site.

If the problem persists, please contact the Goozex administrators at comment@goozex.com.

Thank you, The Goozex Team.

Then I tried again and got the full site! But when I tried to log in I got the above error message again. Ok it seems that the front page kind of works but if you try to access anything the error message comes up. Is Goozex lurching back to life?

Wow, I just realized goozex is dead. I tried accessing the site to check to see if I got a certain game there but couldn't get it to load. At least I only had 1250 points and a couple of tokens left.

At this point I'm pretty skeptical to immediately jump into another site.  99 Gamers seems like it's been doing OK for a while now but I'm not sure who to go with.  I lost about 2500 points and 3 tokens at Goozex but considering how much I got over the years and how little it cost me to get those 2500 points I consider my Goozex losses to be quite minimal.  I feel like I got screwed more at VGFive since I sent out a few games right at the beginning and ended up getting 2 less games than what I sent out.

got to wonder if the  runner of  VG will be true to their word and say our points are safe (Doubt it)  

 

sad to see both sites close.

 

had  around 11k on goozex   missed out on 2 games at the end

had   3200 points on  VG    missed out on 1 game 

 

o well both sites i got more then i sent or broke even  (i know  vg  was  22 in  20 out)
