Trades of iPod®, iPhone® and iPad® Prove Successful for GameStop
GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In the months since GameStop (GME) 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.
