We’ll give you the best advice on where to find an affordable PS4 that you might not have considered looking before.
Electronics are one of the most constantly changing consumer goods that exist. There’s always a new model or generation to upgrade to. This tempts people to constantly trade in their old electronics for the newest and best version of what they already have.
This is an expensive habit. But fortunately for you, you get to benefit from the trade-ins that people make on electronics, including PS4’s.

If you want to know where to buy a PS4 for cheap, the answer is pawn shops.
If you already know what a pawn shop is, jump down to the next section. If you don’t know what a pawn shop is, we’ll explain.
A pawn shop is a type of store located in the majority of towns (and even smaller ones) in the US (and they also exist outside of the US!). These stores are primarily in the business of lending cash loans to people using their personal items as collateral.
They also buy and resell second-hand merchandise such as PS4’s. Because these are second- hand, you get these at a significant discount off the retail price. However, not many people know that these shops exist as great resources for used video game consoles and video games. This is where you score big time!
You can walk into a local pawn shop and buy a PS4 within minutes, as long as your local shop carries them. This is a quicker process than you would experience in a place like Best Buy where you would pay full price and need to walk around a huge store.
What’s more, you’re likely to have to listen to a salesperson who is talking your ear off trying to sell you on the newest gaming system. Not at a pawn shop!
