Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has adopted a new trade-in policy that will allow customers to exchange used video games for any in-store product, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Beginning on March 26, Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores will accept used console video games for credit that can be used toward groceries, tech, and other products.

“Gaming continues to be an important business for us and we’re actively taking aim at the $2 billion pre-owned video game opportunity,” said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer for Walmart US, in a statement.

While stores like GameStop and Best Buy have trade-in policies for video games and other tech, Wal-Mart is among the first to offer credit for unrelated products. Shoppers can use credit to make purchases in-store and online.

Traded-in games will be refurbished and sold later this year, according to Reuters.
