Gamestop has one of the largest trade-in programs in the industry. They started out with just accepting video games and consoles and have slowly branched out into many other electronics. From headphones to even smart watches, you can bring in a variety of electronics to Gamestop for cash or credits.
However, Gamestop doesn’t take any electronic that you throw at them. Does Gamestop take bluetooth speakers? The answer to this is no. At this time, Gamestop is not taking in bluetooth speakers for cash or in-store credit.
Gamestop used to accept select Bluetooth speakers in the past, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they started accepting them again in the future. Although you won’t be able to get anything from Gamestop, there are tons of other marketplaces and platforms that you can sell your Bluetooth speakers on.
Where Is the Best Place to Sell Bluetooth Speakers?
With so many different platforms to sell your Bluetooth speakers on, it can be hard to choose the best one. We went ahead and listed a few of the most common marketplaces in which you can list your speakers to get the most out of them.
eBay is our first pick when it comes to selling your speaker. eBay has been around for years and has a huge audience. Almost anyone you ask has heard of eBay which makes it one of the most popular platforms around. The more people on the platform, the faster your speakers will sell.
To sell on eBay you will need to make an account, which is free. They do have premium accounts where you will pay a monthly fee, but you can start with a free account. Once you have created your account, you will need to take pictures of your item, write a description, set the price + shipping, and list it.
When pricing your item, we recommend doing a search for the item you are trying to sell. Once your item is listed in the search results, you will want to filter it by sold/completed.
This will show you the price and the date that the item was sold. If you price your item similar to the price of the market, you will be able to sell your item quickly for the highest amount of money.
Mercari is another great platform to list on. Mercari is a newer platform than eBay, but it still holds its own. They have an awesome mobile interface that makes listing and buying a breeze. We highly recommend Mercari as it is very easy to use and navigate.
Similar to eBay, you will need to take a picture of your item, write a description, set the price + shipping, and list your item. You can also do a quick search for your item to see what similar listings sold for and when.
Your item may take longer to sell on Mercari due to having a smaller audience so we definitely recommend cross listing. Cross listing is simply listing your item on multiple platforms to get the most visibility.
Offer-Up is a great option if you want to sell your item locally. Selling locally will help you avoid shipping your item, as well as paying all the additional selling fees and taxes.
The main drawback to selling locally is the limited visibility that your item will receive since it will be listed within a small perimeter rather than all around the world.
Offer-Up is very simple to use. Simply take a picture of your item, write a description, price it, and list it. You will be asked to filter your perimeter based on your personal preference. Once your item is live, potential buyers will be able to message you, offer on your item, or ask for a meetup.
How Much Can I Sell My Bluetooth Speaker For?
How much you can get for your Bluetooth speaker depends on the make and model. Most of the very popular models of speakers can go for hundreds of dollars even if they are used.
The amount you can get for your used speaker can also vary depending on the condition, as well as if you have the box and original accessories.
Below we provided a small list of some popular Bluetooth speakers along with their sold prices for both new and used conditions. The prices listed below are all from the eBay sold/completed section which is an accurate decryption of the current market values of these items:
|JBL Xtreme 3||New: 290$|
|JBL Flip 5||New: 90$|
|JBL Charge 5||New: 150$|
|Sonos Roam||New: 150$|
With Gamestop having one of the largest trade-in programs around, it makes sense to wonder if they accept Bluetooth speakers. Unfortunately, at this time Gamestop is not currently giving cash or in-store credit for Bluetooth speakers.
Gamestop is always modifying their trade-in program. They are constantly removing or adding items so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they started accepting Bluetooth speakers again in the future. However we still believe that selling your speaker yourself will net you the most money.
Selling on a third party platform like eBay or Mercari is a surefire way to get the most value out of your speaker. You will be able to list your new or used speaker for the maximum market value which would be way more than what Gamestop would offer you for a trade-in.
