Whether you are a gamer yourself or the parent of a teenager who keeps asking for more video games, you may be left in a pinch. It is no secret that some of the best games are expensive. You could easily spend $40 to $50 for just one game for a console! Moreover, there is no guarantee that you or your child will like the game. So what are you to do? How about you turn to Craigslist.org and search for cheap video games. I bet you will like what you see; great prices on used Wii, Playstation, and Xbox 360 games.
So, how can you find cheap video games on Craigslist?
To get started, you want to visit Craigslist.org. Then, you want to choose your location, which should involve choosing your state and สล็อต nearest city. Look to the left side of the page and you will find a search box. This is where you enter in your search phrase.
When it comes to entering in that search phrase, you have a number of different options. For the best results, search with the type of video games you are looking for, like “Wii games.” For smaller, but more accurate results, search with the specific game you are looking for, like “Madden NFL 10.”
After doing your search, you will see a list of headlines and these are your search results. Skim each headline for more information. Sometimes, you will see games sold with the consoles and you don’t want this. Sometimes, sellers try and get as much money as possible, so they charge too much and you don’t want this either. However, any game that looks of interest to you, click on the headline for more information.
Inside, you should detailed information about the for sale video game. To ensure the seller really has the game and isn’t trying to pull a fast one on you, there should be a picture and this shouldn’t be a stock photo either. There should also be some type of information about the game – only played a few times, just a couple of scratches, plays well, and so forth.
If you like what you see (which is hopefully a cheap Wii, PlayStation, or Xbox 360 game), use the provided email address or phone number to contact the seller. For the best results, make this contact quickly. As previously stated, some video games sell for as much as $40 or $50 and lots of other consumers are looking to save money too. New and cheap video games go quick on Craigslist.
Another neat thing about video games is that they are light. Now, Craigslist warns right on their website that shipping is usually a scam. Yes, it always is with cars, but you can have video games shipped to your home (especially when you get them at a cheap price). The shipping should cost no more than $3 or $4. Generally, you will be safe if you suggest the shipping and not the other way around. For safer payment, see if the buyer has a PayPal account. If you like this approach, try a Craigslist search tool that lets you search multiple locations at once; something you cannot do on Craigslist.org.
