GameStop offers iPhone, iPod and iPad trade-ins at US stores, just in time for fall titles

Looking to get some green back for that aging iOS device? GameStop's looking to oblige. The famed retailer has announced that you'll be able to trade-in your infrequently used iPhone, iPod or iPad for store credit, starting today. Since these devices usually carry significantly higher value than most of the store's gently used items -- adjusted to merely higher given the outfit's historically laughable trade-in values -- Call of Duty addicts can now rejoice in having yet another source of funding for their fix. Also, this announcement comes just in time for you to get your assets in order for the fall slate of games -- specifically, the ones you were planning to a) order online or b) download. Well played, GameStop. If you're yearning for more info, check out the PR after the break.

U.S. GameStop Stores To Accept Trades of iPod®, iPhone® and iPad® Mobile Digital Devices
Put your iPod, iPhone or iPad trade toward this year's hottest releases and more at GameStop

GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Got an iPod, iPhone or iPad collecting dust? Don't trash it or let it sit and lose value – trade it for credit toward video games, gaming systems, downloadable content (DLC) and more at GameStop (NYSE: GME), the world's largest multichannel retailer of video games. Beginning today, customers can take advantage of competitive trade values and earn credit by trading in their iPod, iPhone or iPad at GameStop stores nationwide.

Many iPod, iPhone and iPad trade values are significantly higher than typical game trade-ins, allowing customers to build trade credit more quickly. "By trading in iOS devices, GameStop customers have yet another source of funds to put toward the purchase of new and pre-owned games, DLC, digital PC games and more," stated GameStop president Tony Bartel. "This is especially significant with the great title line-up slated for this fall."

Trades of the iPod, iPhone or iPad must be in working condition and free from cosmetic defects. For complete details, including devices accepted, visit or a local GameStop store.
