How to save on video games
It might be tough to score free games, but you can find discount video games, cheap PS4s, PC game deals and more right here! On this page, you'll find everything you need whenever you're in the market for deals on shooting games, controllers for sale or a cheap XBOX One. Game on!
Pre-order video games: Some online stores, like amazon.com and amazon.co.uk offer great discounts if you pre-order video games before their official release dates. These deals vary, but some savvy shoppers can save up to 20% of the release price just by placing an early order.
Shop bundles: Microsoft and Sony usually offer XBOX One bundles and PS4 bundles whenever major games are released. While some special edition bundles might look fancy, they can help you save a lot of money, since you'll often get a console, a controller or two and at least one game much cheaper than you might if you buy each item individually.
Buy refurbished consoles: If you're looking for the latest console, consider picking up a refurbished XBOX One instead of buying a brand-new device. Check EB Games and major electronics stores to find refurbished consoles – they're as close to new as possible but much more affordable.
Trade in your old games: It may be hard to part with some of your favourites, but if your new console isn't backwards-compatible, it just might be time to trade in your old video games. Most gaming stores will let you trade in almost any game for store credit.
Sign up for email updates: One of the easiest ways to save on gaming is to know when and where sales happen. Make sure you check this page and subscribe to Buckscoop emails, so you won't miss any deals. It's also a good idea to sign up for emails from your favourite companies or stores, so you always know where to find the best prices on video games.
