Save money on gaming with our hacks

gaming

Back in June all fellow gamers united to eagerly await the start of E3, but now that the show is over the wait begins. Fortunately, we don't have to wait that long to play some of the biggest games.

Yes, you heard right, you can expect to play games like Borderlands 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Gears 5 as soon as this year. With all of this excitement on the horizon it’s easy to forget about the hefty price tags that these games carry.

That’s where we come in. We want to help you save as much money as possible while still being able to revel in the joy of the newest releases. We’ve got four great hacks to help you save more on your gaming this year.

1 - Always earn cashback

This may seem like an obvious one coming from us but cashback is a nice little bonus back on your purchase of the latest release. It’s a saving you otherwise wouldn’t have made. Here are our top five places you can buy the latest releases and still earn cashback:

1 - GAME
2 - Zavvi
3 - 365games
4 - Amazon
5 - eBay

2 - Check marketplaces like eBay and Amazon

Games tend to be cheaper when you shop at eBay or Amazon. This isn’t always the case with new releases so it’s still worth shopping around before making a purchase but more often than not you can find the game you’re after at a discounted price on eBay or Amazon. As well as getting a discounted price at these brands you can still earn cashback, meaning you get double the savings.

3 - Sell or trade in old games

Even the best gamers of our generation can only play one game at once, and as much as we don’t like to admit it, some games in our collection haven’t been opened since 2014. Do you really still play FIFA 15?

Make some space and earn some cash by selling your old games. If you sell your old games with musicMagpie you can earn cashback to help with your savings goal, that’s one step closer to the latest release.

4 - Buy pre-owned

Before you buy a new copy of the latest game ask yourself this key question. If I buy this now, will I play it right away? If the answer is yes then waiting for a pre-owned copy to go on sale might not be the best option for you.

But, if you’re already invested in a different games storyline and can hold off for a couple of months then it may serve you better to wait for fellow gamers to start selling their copies. You can find pre-owned copies on GAME and musicMagpie, plus you can still earn cashback when you buy pre-owned from these brands.
