Trading & Selling
Need a little extra cash?
Got your eye on something in our store?
We buy and/or trade for pretty much anything that you see on our shelves. We check current market values at the time you bring your item in to help you get the best value for your stuff. We have experts on staff for almost everything we carry. If you have something valuable we'll tell you what it is, why its valuable, and let you know what its worth. We've been in business since 1992 and have built our reputation on honesty. We want you to feel good about your transactions with us so you will tell your friends and come back yourself, too!

Cash or Trade?
We offer in-store credit on all items that we accept. In-store credit is often referred to as "trade" or "trade credit." Trade credit can be spent in-store just like cash. The only restriction on store credit is that it may only be applied to items at regular price. It may not be used in conjunction with sales, specials, coupons, or other offers. In-Store credit never expires so you can store up for something special or just save it for another day if you can't find something you like that day. Due to various market factors, there are some items for which we only offer in-store credit.
We pay cash for many items every day. Please know that due to the current economic climate, we have to carefully budget our funds for buying merchandise from customers just like you. You are certainly welcome to stop in the store, but we recommend that you please e-mail us using the form on the Contact Us page, message us on Facebook, or give us a call to find out if we are paying cash for something you have today!
What do we take?
There is an almost endless list of items that we will take. See if something you're looking to move is something you can trade to us!
Video Games, Systems, and Accessories
Everything and anything you can find -- Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSVita, 3DS, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast, PSP, DS, PS1, N64, Saturn, GBA, Sega CD, 32X, Game Boy Color, Game Gear, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, NES, Master System, Atari... hopefully you get the idea.
Laptops, Macbooks, netbooks, iPads, iPods... (Sadly, we do not currently take phones.) Electronics lose value faster than any other genre due to constant advances in technology and model upgrades. If you're considering trading or selling an item, don't wait! Do it today!
College Textbooks & Texas Instruments Calculators
Done for the semester? Tired of seeing that stack of books in your closet? Don't throw them away... trade or sell them to us today! You can contact us with a list of ISBN numbers for an e-mail estimate or bring them in the shop today for a quote! You can sell them for cash or trade them toward sweet new stuff and get even more bang for your buck!
While we take books from all eras, books from before 1970 are the most desirable. Overall, very few books are worth "big bucks." Comics are extremely condition sensitive. Even tiny defects can drastically affect a book's value. Stop in with your collection to see if you might have a true gem!
Blu-Ray and DVD feature films and TV series can be traded. Due to the high volume of piracy in the home movie industry we usually only offer in-store credit for movies. We do also welcome vintage mediums like Super 8 film strips and even Laser Discs, too!
Graphic Novels & Manga
Japanese classics and American up-and-comers are all great reads!
Music (Vinyl Records)
Vinyl Records are back! Trade or sell a single LP or your entire collection. Mostly 33RPM, 12" LPs of Classic Rock, 70's & 80's Pop, Punk & Metal, Classic Country (Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, etc.), or early 90's Alternative Rock/Grunge are most desirable. Sadly we do not currently accept 45s.
Trading Card Game Cards
There are more games out there than you can count on an army of hands. We still look for Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Pokemon. Most of the cards we pay cash for are from the most recent sets. There are a number of Magic cards from early 1990s sets that are still valuable, and likely always will be as long as people play the game.
D&D Miniatures top our list of miniature games. There are other minis that we will still take from other games so feel free to inquire about anything you might have to trade or sell.
Board & Card Games
Have you had your fill of some of your games? Don't let them just collect dust, bring them in and convert them to something new for you, your friends, and your family!
Pretty much anything Dungeons&Dragons goes without saying, but don't forget Pathfinder, Marvel Super-Heroes, Rifts, and the like. We also love to see obscure titles, too. We just really have a soft spot for RPGs of any kind.
Just about everyone has at least one toy line of which they have very fond memories. While you can bring in just about anything, some of our favorites are Transformers, any kind of super-hero, Ninja Turtles, He-Man, GI Joe, Thundercats, Dragonball Z, and Star Wars. We accept toys in and out of original packaging. Toys still in package are always more valuable than loose ones. Similarly, loose toys with original accessories are better than bare pieces. In some cases the accessories are worth more than the toy itself! Bring your toychest in today!
Did You Know...?
....You don't need to throw a broken game system in the trash! You can turn your trash into CASH here at the GameZone! We buy and trade for non-functional video game systems of all eras! Most systems of this sort fetch around $1 in cash or $2 in-store credit. Current generation systems are worth more, though.
We even take non-functional home cartridge games from the NES-era through the N64. Typically we pay around 5-cents for these carts. More rare games will get you more, though.
Did your son drag your laptop off the table? All is not lost! We also buy and trade for damaged or non-functional electronics like laptops, iPads, and iPods! Sadly, we do not currently take phones.
