GameStop and Amazon have announced a new partnership that is sure to give a much-needed boost into the arm of physical video games. Keep the discs flowing, my friends!
Starting on June 7, you’ll be able to transfer your GameStop trade-in credit towards absolutely anything on Amazon. GameStop seems more than thrilled to have its logo on Amazon’s website in the official announcement.
Starting in June, Amazon shoppers will be able to apply their GameStop trade credit and cash towards their Amazon account. This exciting addition to our trade program is intended to drive incremental trades into stores, helping your team meet trade and inventory goals.
On 6/7, the GameStop logo will be added to Amazon’s website to promote this program. Interested shoppers will request a barcode on Amazon.com/cash that can be used in GameStop stores like an Amazon POSA card.
The added store traffic driven by this program is sure to help increase digital sales and the potential for guests to purchase other products in your store.
Amazon, of course, allows for the purchase of digital games nowadays, so you can essentially trade in your old physical collection to GameStop and exchange that for online digital deals. If you really want to part with all those discs hogging up your shelves, then by all means.
