has anyone ever had luck with putting multiple trade ins in the same box or is that a very
dumb idea. i just only have one box left, and i think i could get both in and sent under the weight limit of just one, but i dont want it to be rejected/only count as one traded in...


I've put 6 games or more for trade its so its no problem. However, people seem to have had problems when they put 20 plus in one box but that's not always the case. If you want more boxes why don't you go to your local supermarket and get a couple of them ( I work in one and oh boy it is a gold mine for boxes to use in trade ins ). You can split your games up into multiple packages if you are weary. Oh and make Sure the manual is in it ( unless its a old game boy or snes game ) they might reject it or more likely give you less credit for your trade in if you don't have it with the game.

This may be a stupid question, but can you buy a Amazon Gift card with the credit from the trade-ins? Because I would like to send someone a gift card, preferably with this credit I would be getting.

I really wish Amazon would list Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters as a trade in so I can get rid of it already.

It's been out for over 3 weeks now....and is still not listed.

I made some pretty significant changes to the mobile version of the tracker:

Made a few optimizations so hopefully it should run faster and look better on your small screens. If you run into any issues with the changes, please let me know!

Movie tie in games have no demand so there is no reason for Amazon to raise its value. If anything, the tiv for Green lanturn is going to plumit soon along with its msrp. You better get rid of it now while you can

Well, damn, if you are getting the full $230 and getting your system back I think I may bug them about getting that extra $30 that they denied me when downgrading mine to "good" (given that everyone else got the full $230).


well io you did technically choose the option to downgrade ;). I was surprised the csr applied the credit, just expected him to tell me to resend and they will honor the $230.

Amazon does not even have it listed. That's the problem. Best Buy/Gamestop have a TIV...but not Amazon (and I want Amazon credit). They had the crappy Thor game up 2 weeks after it came out and it's still hovering around $14-$15.
Green Lantern was so much better than that game.

I don't expect much for it. I would just like something. I hate being a sucker for these craptastical superhero movie tie-ins.

But dammit, I am still getting Captain America. :D

Damn just saw the Noire dropped in value from $30 to $25. I knew I should have locked in $30 and tried to finish it up so I could trade it in at the higher value.

Quick question- I won a game from the subway sweepstakes (PS3) and it has a slashed bar code. Is amazon still going to accept this? I know on the front page it says YMMV, but I want to know the general consensus before I try.

YMMV. They accepted ModNation last year for me, but they seem to be a bit stricter now.

Does Amazon accept game trades that have their UPC slashed (example: Infamous 2 from the subway promo)?

For me that experience has been different. I had 8 different trade ins go through that town and they all ended up at amazon.

Yes, my last two took a while. I had even completely forgotten about one since I did it so long ago - but I got the credit on Friday. They got another package mid-week and nothing yet. I wouldn't expect anything till the middle of next week at this point.

I usually drop off my trade ins at the UPS store around 9 or so on mondays before the UPS truck comes in to pick up the packages, I get my trade in credit by Wednesday night by doing this, latest I get it is Thursday afternoon

Hmm, since I started trading again I've noticed that it takes two days now to process my stuff. Last year it would be approved by the following day without fail. Nothing unusual though.

Does Amazon care about Slipcovers for trade ins? For example the cardboard cover that goes over Fallout New Vegas. The one I got with mine is trashed and makes the game look in worse condition than it is (the actual game and case are practically mint)

Thanks!

I made a post in the bestbuy ad thread for those trying to flip dance central...


Dance central with 240pts is not accepted at amazon. It has a different Upc. People have been rejected on this game. See if you can peel off the Upc. If not, you're screwed.

got a rejection on an item that had a tiny sliver of a scratch on the top of the disc (ie not the shiny side). Was pretty surprised as it was otherwise in excellent condition and I actually had to squint to see what the sticker was pointing at. Still plays fine of course.

for kicks I emailed Amazon about it and for the first time I got the response "the third party purchaser of used games can reject whatever they want for any reason they choose." Interesting.
