GameStop Offers To Convert Unwanted Gift Cards Into Games, Hardware

In a unique move, Grapevine, Texas-based videogame retailer GameStop says it will take your unwanted gift cards you received over the holidays--and convert those directly into GameStop gift cards, which can be used to purchase new videogames and videogame hardware. According to GameStop, it has expanded its existing online gift card exchange program to its U.S. stores, allowing users to trade in unwanted gift cards from other retailers, and instead get GameStop gift cards for use at its stores. GameStop is tapping into gift card exchange provider Cardpool for the service, offering up some portion of face value for those gift cards. GameStop had previously only offered the service online.
