The Hut launches games trade-in service

Online retail firm The Hut Group has set up a new website that allows customers to buy and sell pre-owned video games.

TheHutRecycle.com lets users trade in their old games, CDs, DVDs, mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players and more in exchange for vouchers. These can be used to spend on TheHut.com.

Each product has a set value with the Nintendo DSi priced at 30 and CDs worth as little as 50p. The site values Apple iPads at around 400.

A statement read: "There is no other site available that offers such a wide range of products for trade in, making TheHut.com the only website you’ll ever need.

"Recycling credit can be used on anything on TheHut.com including gadgets, games, DVDs, fashion, footwear, books and toys. It’s the perfect website for the run up to Christmas. Clear out your unwanted goodies and save."

The Hut Group joins other retailers which have introduced games trade-in schemes including Amazon and Blockbuster.
