Now all that is needed is an Amazon chain store. I'd visit that more frequently than any other store, and I'm sure most people would probably visit it over wal-mart (maybe?)

Most people shop at Amazon so they don't have to pay sales tax. Opening up locations in a bunch of states would force them to charge sales tax in every state with a store even on their website. A very very bad idea as it is Amazon's biggest advantage. I know the only reason I shop there is to save on tax. BTW I tried their trade-in service. It is ok but it takes about 2 weeks for them to credit your account with the gift cert. EB is still the place to go if you want to do a quick trade in. Selling on ebay is still the best place to get the most money for your game.

Ah, that was the main reason as to why I would have liked to have seen at least a small trade-in store from amazon. 2 Weeks isn't bad if you plan ahead, but yet it seems like an eternity. I may give a try but it depends on how much I would get versus what I would get from gamestop.
