amazon-signIf you have games that you no longer play and have no intention of playing again, a good way to get rid of them is to take them to your local games retailer and trade it in or sell it for store credit, which you can then use to buy a new game. In fact Amazon UK has been running a similar scheme for a while, but unfortunately that program is coming to an end.

The company has officially announced (via GameSpot) that come 31st of August, they will be ceasing their pre-owned games trade-in program in the UK. According to Amazon, “You can submit trade-in items as normal up to and including 31 August 2015. No Trade-In orders can be submitted online after the closure date.”

The company also adds, “Please ensure your trade-in items are dispatched within 7 days after your submission. Trade-Ins sent after this time will not be accepted by us and will be returned to your address.” As it stands, the closure will only affect Amazon UK and there is no word on whether Amazon will be putting an end to the program in North America.

However like we said this only affects Amazon UK, so if you’re living in the US, you’re still good to continue trading your used games. That being said there are still plenty of alternate venues for selling or trading in your pre-owned games, so hopefully Amazon UK’s program closure won’t affect you too greatly.
