J2Games pays cash or store credit for fully functioning video games, video game systems, accessories, arcade machines and pinball machines from early Atari to the newest game systems. We’re also happy to discuss gaming related oddities for trade as well.

If you’re local to our stores in NJ, please bring your trade-in items during regular business hours to be processed in person. Most of our trade-ins can be done on the spot, but we may ask for a few hours if the store is busy or have some trades ahead of you. 

If you’re not local to our NJ locations and looking to do mail-in trades, please fill out our mail-in trade-in form with the details of your trade and include a printed copy of the form with your shipment to us at the listed address. We process all mail-in trades within 72 hours of receiving the items and will contact you to finalize the trade, total value and if you’d like the value sent in cash (via PayPal) or store credit (which can be used to purchase any in-stock items on our website).

We subject all of our trade-ins to rigorous testing to ensure the items are fully functional and authentic. Any defective items will be returned or recycled. Once agreed, we factory restore applicable game consoles to reset the unit to original specs and remove any personal content.
