ahhh, I have like 3 of those! I didn't realize that was one of the games. :bomb:

It wasn't worth much, so don't feel too bad. Only 6.95. lol Wish I could have found my old metal gear, crash bandicoot, and pokemon red/blue though.

The shame of it is that I sent mine off but I have been playing through nuclear strike recently and that game is awesome. Good thing it's easy to find for a few bucks.


Yeah, it's tough dipping into the personal collection sometimes; I could have sent in a Super Mario Land and Dr. Maro n64 but it didn't seem worth it-- having to track down clean replacements for a couple bucks in credit.

I was able to trade off a couple of games in exchange for boxed copies of the same game by spending just a couple of bucks. Totally sweet.

I still have 3 trades processing ever since Friday. This is driving me nuts. It happens to be the three freaking games I bought for flipping too. Of course, they process quickly the games from my personal collection. $160 credit so far. Fun while it lasted!

Ugh, the tracking page for that troubled package hasn't had any movement since I dropped it off. I know not every stop for every package gets a scan but I'm extra paranoid because UPS fucked with it in the first place. I just want to see that thing checked in Ohio or some other leg of the trip so I can breathe easy.

Man this sucks. Both my crystal and silver version pokemon games were deemed unacceptable for some reason. I know they both worked fine with the other pokemon games (Red and Blue) I have sent in because I tested them before I sent them in. They were all without box and manual. They were in no worse condition than the others. That's $42 I could have had. :cry:

And how do they test gameboy games anyway? I have a feeling they just slap it in a gameboy and if it does not work the first time they mark it unacceptable.

Got some more payouts and my first rejection. Supposedly Star Fox Adventures was missing its manual. Not sure about that one. Thought that one was in there. Hopefully they take my other Star Fox Adventures, which was in my collection, and I can just replace it with the one that was in my collection.

And does anyone know if you can contact amazon if the game I get back is damaged? Two of my gameboy games were marked with severe damage.

You can always try. Just know that if they decide to give you the value of the trade-in, it will be in the form of Amazon promotional credit, not gift card credit (only usable on items sold by Amazon.com, so it excludes Warehouse items).

Apparently I have return downgraded items set as default and I didn't even realize it until now. But I was also selecting accurate conditions for everything, so hopefully I should be fine.

What is the best way to contact them if my trade ins were damaged? I wouldn't mind If I received promotional credit since I purchase many things directly from amazon anyway.

You could do a live chat online (be sure to specify that it's a trade-in-related question), or you could call through the phone. I've only used the former method once regarding a trade-in and it wasn't even related to damaged items, so I can't say with certainty which is the better option. Sorry. :-#

Amazon says you should use their general purpose contact page for any questions in regards to trade-ins.

In the picker that comes up for the inquiry reason, there is an option for telling them it's related to a trade-in.

Mine arrived on Monday with 18 games in the box. Today they finally finished processing 9 of them, crediting me with the condition I listed them in. They also approved a DS game that had been in the lost & found at my job for a few months, so that's cool. Maybe they'll finish the rest by tomorrow.
