So this is like CEX but you can't get cash, only credit for TheHutGroup, and the prices are lower. 50p for a game!? £35 for an iPhone 2G!?

However it is a nice looking site, clean, and user friendly. I imagine the process might be quite slow though, as sending to Jersey takes time and then they have to process it. CEX you can go to a store and get cash or generous credit and Amazon process your trade-ins very quickly. Will be interesting to see how TheHutGroup fair on this one - perhaps succeeding more with the uncommon trade-in items.
