In the months since GameStop began accepting trades on the iPod, iPhone and iPad, the company has seen strong consumer enthusiasm for the program. GameStop customers are taking advantage of this new option to put money in their pockets or use store credit to pay for video games, consoles and pre-owned gaming tablets and mobile devices by scoring trade credit. Customers can receive up to $180 for an iPod Touch, up to $300 for an iPhone and up to $400 for an iPad.
“The velocity of this trade program has exceeded our expectations,” stated GameStop president Tony Bartel. “We expect to see strong post-holiday traffic as customers trade in older models that were replaced by gifts.”
With the success of the iPod, iPhone and iPad trade program, the company will continue to expand the availability of GameStop refurbished devices for sale in select stores and online at www.GameStop.com. For complete details on iPod, iPhone and iPad trades, visit www.GameStop.com/iTrades.
But for gamers who want to enter the tablet market, GameStop is only selling Android devices. The retailer currently sells Acer Iconia, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and Samsung Galaxy tablets, which feature the new quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. All of these tablets have been built for gaming. And GameStop has also built a custom controller to enhance the gameplay experience for the newest games.
