LeapTrade Review

Disclaimers:

Thank you Leap Trade for providing us with credit on your website to trade/purchase a game!
Although Leap Trade does advertise with us, it does not influence this review of their service in any way. 

Many of us have games laying around that we no longer play or want anymore.  While GameStop is convenient for trading them in, they give you very little money for them.    If you're not in a rush to sell your games, Leap Trade will give you  more credit for them than Game Stop and Amazon.

There is no cost to join the site and after joining,  you can buy Leap Trade credit at a reduced price for a limited time. The game prices are competitive and updated every couple of weeks.  There is a forum to suggest pricing changes if needed. 

The game price is the final price to your door as shipping is included.  The United States Postal Service shipping labels are paid for by the seller and it's very reasonably priced at $3.50.   Tracking is included and easily accessible via Leap Trade's website.

Buying a game is pretty easy to do.  Their site is easy to navigate by console platform.    All the current consoles are represented along with classic systems like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Genesis.  Many recent and popular games are available to buy or put yourself down on a waitlist to trade for when it becomes available.    There are plenty of copies of Destiny available, but the game I was the most interested in, Hyrule Warriors, was not immediately available.

There are two forms of trading.  You can trade for credit or do a game swap.  For the sake of this review, I traded in credit for Destiny on the Play Station 4.  The first seller I was matched up with had zero feedback which made me a little nervous.  Sure enough, they never confirmed the trade and after a couple of days the site transferred my trade request to the next seller in line.  That user had positive feedback and shipped the game out to me quickly. I had it in my possession within a couple of days. 

Unfortunately,  they didn't use a padded envelope and the game's case got cracked in transit.  Thankfully the game was in working order (after wiping off some fingerprints).    I left positive feedback regardless.  Had there been a problem, it's comforting to know that Leap Trade 100% guarantees their trades and works with both parties to ensure that the buyer is satisfied. 

Since the game I have listed hasn't sold yet, I can't comment on the shipping label process.  Listing my game took a little bit of effort.  My copy of Just Dance Kids 2014 on the Wii U wasn't available as a sellable title, so they had to be contacted via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to list the game.   If it sells I'll get $20 in Leap Trade credit for it which is very fair.  When listing a game to sell you'll be notified of your selling position.  Not surprisingly, I'm the first in line to sell Just Dance Kids 2014.  

Between  the two adults and three kids in my household, there aren't too many games we like to part with.  There are always exceptions,  and if there's a game we can agree to trade in, we'll do it though Leap Trade in the future.  Besides earning credits for trading games you can earn $5 in credit for every friend that registers and sells a game through your referral link.  Here's mine, if you care to try it out.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
