Ok I was just wondering is their a website that would allow you to trade in games and you can get some Money for it. Like will they send you a box and you put the games in their and then send it to them.

Kind of like that commercial I see on tv or hear on the radio, cash for gold. :) I don't think there is a business like that, but hey that might be your million dollar idea.

Gamefly has a trade-in feature.

Check out www.glyde.com . It isn't fully what you want, but what you do is list your games and put what condition its in and wait for someone to buy it. Once someone buys it they send you an envelope that you put the game in and put it back in the mail. There is a little bit of waiting but you do get more then you would if you were to trade-in games.

This option will only work if you use Gamefly's renting service and have been doing so for at least 3 months. The money you receive isn't in cash, but you can use it towards paying your membership with them.
I think you might be able to use it towards the purchase of other games through Gamefly as well, but I can't confirm that.

If you shop at Amazon, take a look at their program as well.
Amazon.com: Video Games Trade-In

Basically, they send you a box, you pack your items, and they send you a giftcard.
I don't believe they have a cash option, though.

O Cool so when they put the (trade in points) on the card I could then buy other games from them? And do I have to pay for Amazon

Nah, Amazon is free to have an account with and the box they give you is free of charge as well.

just a note for UK people. CEX is a great shop for this

In the UK we have CeXchange for that. They dont send a box for you though, they just add the postage costs that you pay to the money you get at the end, so you can pay for a good reliable postage and not worry about not getting the money back. Ive used it before, and its very good, and they offer higher prices than game shops.

Anyways, I checked CeXchange, and it seems they have a US Store now? So yeh, check the links:
