Gamestation was mine before it closed down, but now it's Game and CeX (Computer Exchange). I'd like to know where you guys get your games from so I can have a look around and get some more things to review. Where do you buy your games, new or pre-owned, and why? ^^

I quite like Amazon; done most of my PS1 collecting there! CeX isn't just a game store either but film and music, so it's not like they'll hurt GS too much! Thanks for telling me your thoughts on Gamestop too ^^
A good list there, like the personal experiences! I tend to go to eBay mostly now (or ShopTo.net, thanks to Souther's answer), but flea markets are real good ^^
I'll investigate Shopto.net, and when I'm paid next week I'll invest in them I reckon! I agree with CeX that their quality isn't what it used to be, and Game are awkward with what they do atm.
Honestly without a shadow of a doubt the greatest random find for me was shopto.net. I work in Marketing and at one point doing Marketing for this brand would have been ideal for me as good to market something you're passionate about.

In the US gamestop is a rip off and sells pre owned for $5 less than new. Even walmart are cheaper so I'm not a fan. I know in Ireland Gamestop are a little better but have increased their prices a lot in recent years.
Yes cfin, that is true for games that just come out. I went to GameStop a week after Halo 4 came out and found it used for about $10 cheaper. Why do you think that is? Because it is still new. The GameStop I go to doesn't match the one you described.
Reward card systems are very common, but linking it with Kongregate is pretty cool! I wish we had Gamestops here in England, 'cause I'm a sucker for reward cards and Kongregate badges ^^
