Shop from Home & Save Money

The internet offers a lot of opportunity to gamers. There are various websites to buy, sell, trade and rent games.

With eBay, you filter through hundreds of different sellers looking for the best deal on thousands of games. You have a lot of options too, because you can simply "buy it now" if you want to avoid the hassle of bidding or you can fight for titles and get items for a steal. eBay is also a great place to look for rare titles. is an online marketplace similar to eBay (in fact, it's part of the company), but all items are sold for fixed prices. Basically, all you need to do is look up games on the website and choose the price you wish to pay. Of course, this price corresponds to a specific quality. You can get ridiculously cheap prices on used games, but make sure to factor in shipping costs! You can also become a seller on the site and make a profit by getting rid of old games. Honestly though, it takes a decent amount of time to get your money, and you'd probably just be better off trading them in to a local store.

Amazon offers fair prices on game releases, new and old. Always be on the lookout for the latest sales. If you are a student, there is no reason you shouldn't sign up for your free six months of Amazon Prime which gives you free 2-day shipping! Buying games online can be pointless if the shipping costs are substantial. With Amazon, it's not as much of a concern and you don't even have to leave your computer to get your games!

GameFlyGamefly lets you rent games for a fee each month. Think of it as Netflix for games. For one game a month it costs $15.95 and two games a month costs $22.95. The service offers a great selection, but be aware that it's based on availability. The higher demand that exists for a game, the less chance you have of getting your choice of game right away. Still, if you are a slower gamer and end up only finishing one game each month, you'll end up only paying roughly $16 for what is normally a $40 to $60 game. That's a pretty substantial savings right there!
