Shopping tips: EB Games
- Remember that EB Games has a limited time returns policy for Christmas. If your gift was purchased after 2 November, you have until 15 January to return it - so long as the product in all in one piece and you have your reciept handy.
- Trade in old games to save money. If you've got a pile of old games (or even an old iPod or iPhone) sitting under the telly, take them with you and see how much they will offer you. Note: We don't recommend doing this on Boxing Day. Trading in games makes the transaction much longer and you'll face a horde of angry shoppers behind you while you haggle.
- Check the rating when you're shopping for games. Games are rated by the Australian Classification Board, just like TV and movies, so you can know for sure if the title is age appropriate.If you're not too sure how to check classification, a retail assistant will know if the game is age appropriate.
