If you can, check out the ebay coupons to see if you can qualify for a discount. Then, just enter the ebay coupon code in at time of purchase and you can save anything from 10-90% on the cost of your game – fantastic!
When searching for used computer games on ebay, do make sure that you are buying exactly what you think you are. Is the instruction manual included? Does it fit your games console? Does it come in its original box? These are all details which should be in the listing, and if they are not, send the seller a question and ask them.
When buying used computer games it’s also wise to check out the seller’s feedback to make sure they are reputable. Feedback is either positive, neutral or negative, and people leave comments as well. This is how good sellers are defined on ebay.
Very often people will sell used computer games in bundles. This is an excellent way of getting yourself a great deal as even though there only may be one game in there which you want, you can then advertise the others on ebay and more than likely get some, if not all of your purchase price back.
There is a thriving market on ebay in used computer games, and if you sell off the ones which you no longer play, you can probably get back enough money to purchase new ones, so they effectively end up costing you nothing. So it’s a win win situation all round.
For the best re-sale price, ensure that you only buy boxed computer games with manuals, as these command the highest prices when sold on second hand.
