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 ^^
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.
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 ^^

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 ^^
