“College bookstores are like the GameStop of textbooks”

Students trade-in computer games at GameStop; when they go to college, they trade-in textbooks at the college bookstore. “College bookstores are the only place worse than Gamestop for trade-in values of used product” was posted on Twitter on May 21, 2009. “College Bookstores: The Gamestop Of Education” was posted on Twitter on March 15, 2012.

“College book stores are the equivalent of GameStop when it comes to trading stuff in” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on October 1, 2017.


Wikipedia: GameStop
GameStop Corp., or simply referred to as GameStop, is an American video game, consumer electronics, and wireless services retailer. The company is headquartered in Grapevine, Texas, United States, and operates 7,117 retail stores throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. The company’s retail stores primarily operate under the GameStop, EB Games, ThinkGeek, and Micromania brands.

Trade-ins
GameStop sells games that are traded in for store credit. This practice has come under fire from game publishers and developers as they make no money from the transaction.

College book stores buy back books like GameStop. You pay $156 & they like “$7.25?”
