    I don't even go into the one in Leam.
    I simply go on the website. I print off the games i want to trade. Stroll into Gamestation across the road from CEX and then smile as they have to give me 8 more per game than they would have.
    The leam one doesn't seem too bad though tbh.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Hmm, they accept website print outs? That can be extorted within reason :)

    They're paying 32 in cash and 40 exchange for RDR according to their website.

    Not bad, if you can stand going in the place...

    I just load the site up on my phone, they have no problems with that.

    I just conjure a vortex to a parallel universe where the sky is made of the CEX website and use that, they seem cool with it.

    There's a good reason they are giving such a good price for RDR, it's selling for 50 used in the shop. This was in the shop in Edinburgh, and I was utterly amazed they were doing it for such a high price used, and the stock isn't even that bad now.

    There is a reason for that.

    When the game is really new, CEX won't have very many copies yet, so they get a high price (basic supply and demand). What explains why that price is more than buying a new copy elsewhere is that some people don't have the cash to buy the game new, but do have either the games to trade in, or existing credit notes to pay for a CEX one, and are willing to pay the premium to play the new release they couldn't get with cash.

    Ahhhhhh yeah, totally follow you.

    In any case, when I finish this game I'm going to print out the Cex page and hopefully get 33 from Gamestation.

    Asking on here may be quicker than communicating with CEX, so does anyone know if you can return online sales to a store for a refund ?

    Not as far as I know, my store won't do it.

    The forum on their site is usually looked at by (massively defensive) cex staff, try on there.

    I had a really badly scratched Gamecube game from their online store once, they just ignored my emails, but then I just got the tudors series 3 on bluray in mint condition for 12 from their for my gf so its swings and roundabouts.

    The customer service IS awful though.

    I have an 8 voucher expiring tomorrow... and I'm going to let it because:

    A: It's not worth the petrol / cark park fee.
    B: This year has been shit for games and there's nothing I want.
    C: I hate everyone that works there, I know this because I've looked at them.
    D: Their blu-ray prices are ludicrous too... so I couldn't even bring myself to get one of those.

    I have a 70 voucher expiring in a few weeks, I wonder if that will go the same way.

    Have they recently changed to not expiring their credit vouchers? I've got two that I see are set to expire in 3010. Even assuming the receipt was still readable then, I doubt they'd still be in business.

    Sounds to me like someone fucked up somewhere. ;)

    Either that, or the person behind the counter has the hots for you. MMMmmmmm... greasy.

    Could you not combine them together to create some kind of...SUPER VOUCHER?
