OK, I think I know what to do in the future if Amazon trade-ins take a bit longer to process than I expected: Post my concern in this thread. :razz:

Two more transactions went through (2x Gallop Racer for $60 total, 2x Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers for $58.20 total). \\:D/


Is there a particular reason you have multiple copies of games, out of curiosity?

Uh...other than the fact that two is the limit, no?

I was able to buy those through the Marketplace and they arrived quickly enough that I could mail them. I used Amazon credit on all of them that I basically quintupled with the trade-in. :oops: A risk, I know, but totally worth it.

They rejected my gameboy color because they said it didn't work. I know for a fact it did, I just bet that they didn't want to give me the $85. Or maybe they were too lazy to put in batteries.

Yeah, I don't have a staples nearby, which is surprising since we have 2 O. Depot, and 2 O. Max stores within 5 miles of each other. the other UPS store is a little farther from my house, but the guy gives me a receipt. He just has funky hours...


EDIT: Yeah shrike, I like checks and balances, so I am paranoid about not having a receipt. People call me paranoid, but I prefer to think of it as thorough.

FYI...Office Depot also takes UPS packages and will give a receipt.

Oh. I thought these were games you owned.

I mean, I enjoy Donald Duck Goin' Quackers as much as the next guy, but I couldn't imagine why anyone would own two copies of it.

My copy of Red Dead Revolver that was scratched to shit AND had a former rental sticker around the ring was accepted for $30 today. :bouncy:

It just pains me that that's the only game I have to trade in. :cry:

Well, I got my PSOne back a few minutes ago. They threw it in the same box without some of the packing materials and it has some new scratches (in a different color) on the top cover. I haven't checked the serial, but I believe it is the same console.

On the plus side, my oddworld ps1 that was missing the instruction book, just got accepted for the full 'good' value. $30!

You should have seen my dad when I got one of the copies in the mail two weeks ago: "Goin' Quackers? I've been waiting ages to play this! *does eerily-similar-to-the-real-thing Donald Duck muttering impression*" :shock:

The shipping expiration date was yesterday, so I'm just gonna hope for the best and hope Noram is still honoring the values by the time they get it.


You should be fine. I haven't even mailed my last two packages yet (the last shipment date is today for those two) and with the 8-9 days for slow-ass UPS delivery, they better be honoring the values still. If not, that is big time East Coast bias ;).

BTW, my UPS will never give me a receipt even if I ask for one. The lady always says the same thing "You don't need one. Write down the tracking number." (This is even when I drop off 10-15 items at once). I called customer service and they said it is up to the location.


That sucks. At my local UPS store they know me from my frequent Amazon (and before that Gazelle) trade-ins. So they don't even ask me - they just weigh it and print the receipt automatically. I don't want the receipt for my tracking number - I can just use the Amazon trade-in link to track the package. I want the receipt as proof that I mailed it in case the tracking never shows anything (as has happened to a few CAGs).

is anyone having an issue with the cart games?

i sent in xbox scarface and doom 64 together, the scarface was approved for $30, but the doom which i listed as 'acceptable' says pending in the email i received, on their site it says 'processing'

ive never seen that before with previous trade ins, you figure they open the package and both are together they would get it over with

This happened with every single box I sent with complete and cart only games.

The next day I had the cart only games approved. I think they actually test out the cart only games.

So i checked mail today and there was a package from NorAm. I'm thinking "What the hell is this? Nothing was rejected". I open it up and it's IMAX Under the Sea 3D from a groupon deal.

My FFVI Advance is still processing, but my Mega Man and Bass and Golden Sun The Lost Age credited. All of them have boxes, but no manual. I did have some random inserts the games came with so maybe that helped lol.

09/27/12 Delivery date:
Four fully paid out, no GBA games in shipment
Two partially paid out, GBA games pending, non-GBA games paid out, in Processing state
Two in Processing state, all GBA games in shipments

09/28/12 Delivery date:
Two shipments showing as Not Received, UPS shows as delivered

10/01/12 Delivery date:
One shipment shows Processing

They paid out one more non-GBA trade-in and marked the non-GBA shipment received today as Processing. The two non-GBA shipments that arrived on Friday are still showing as Nor Received.

As all of my GBA games were complete, I can't see them doing anything except accept them as Good and go on with my day.

all of my complete games accepted at full value today except my super smash bros with a faded sun label on the front. amazon put it at acceptable for "Original packaging missing" strangely. all cart only gb/n64 games are still processing.


i have 6 more trade ins to send in and had a question though. one of my trades is 2 cart only gb games, i was planning on using quite a small box to ship them, but the shipping label when printed would be too big for it. is it okay to resize a label in paint or something a little bit to make it smaller or will it not scan then?

i posted this a page or two back and was wondering if anyone had an answer since i'm going to ship them out tomorrow.

Scale the label down to fit the box. I've printed UPS labels at 70% normal size and not had issues with them scanning and working for shipment.

It is normal. Just takes them a bit to get the packages from some hypothetical 'giant inbox/bin' into the Amazon system.Also, all my cart games have taken longer. Actually had Gauntlet (PS1) accepted today in a shipment with 3 N64 games and they are all still pending.

Lol, I sent in 5 packages and they all arrived on Friday. I've been credited for only one, and one of them still says not yet received. So yeah, this isn't the most organized or logical process.

Had a BUNCH of cart only games downgraded to acceptable (as expected) just now. I'll take $21 a piece for those all day long. My perfect condition cart only Pokemon Stadium was marked unacceptable as some other people here have mentioned. For whatever reason, they are still processing Super Mario Bros. Deluxe and Donkey Kong Country. Anyways, looks like all the values are being honored.


The people who had Pokemon Stadium rejected most likely did not submit it with the Transfer Pak that it originally came with. I included it with my copy and I got paid out for it just fine. I also made sure to include the original memory card with Animal Crossing.

Aw shit, I didn't even consider the transfer pak. I guess that's one game I'll be getting back

One of my two remaining cart-only trade-ins cleared earlier tonight--Godzilla: Domination x2 (GBA) for $42 total.

The Very Good copy of WWF Attitude (PS1) I ordered through the Warehouse for ~$5.59 arrived today as well, so I can ship that off for another ~$30. ;)
