GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 28, 2011--
In the months since GameStop (NYSE: 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.
