GameStation turns pawnbroker
GameStation has started a new scheme which allows punters to sell their games and consoles for cash; then buy them back at a later date.
Gamers have always been able to trade in games or consoles for money, however the difference here is that you now have 28 days to buy them back again before they’re sold on to someone else.
The idea of this is to allow you to earn some quick bucks for your impulse buys, before going back and buying all your goods back when you get paid.
If this idea catches on we will no doubt see other specialist retailers following GameStation’s lead. For now, though, if you need a specialist gaming pawnbroker, then you know where to go.
