Today: Thrift Stores (or Second Hand Stores where i live)

Pros:

1) Usualy cheap
2) not individualy priced games
3) sometimes rare or obscure items appear for an extreme low price
4) usualy a wide selection of modern games
5) money back guarantee on most games and items


Cons:

1) selection depends on people selling theyr stuff there, so your favorite
    game might not be available when you are looking for it
