Amazon UK closes game trade-in programme

Amazon UK's game trade-in programme will cease to exist at the end of August.


Starting August 31, Amazon UK will no longer accept game trade-ins. The mega retailer announced today that no trade-in orders can be submitted following that date.

The Amazon gift cards you received for trading in games before will remain valid.

This means that not only games, but books, and other accessories that you could previously trade in will also be affected. This is however separate from the site's Marketplace portal, which you can still use to sell used copies of whatever you have.
