Buy a Kindle Fire HD or Nexus 7 with the money you'd spend on an iPod Touch instead. Being a former iPod Touch owner, I can promise you you'll be happy. Both the Kindle and Nexus are 7-inch tablets, and are both cheaper than the iPod. Spare your money!

Just got credited $30 for 007 Nightfire which I bought for 3. Woohoo! I've already blow through most of my credit money buying Man-thing Omnibus, RE 6 and Xcom.

When did your package deliver, out of curiosity?

My trade-in took about 2 days from Processing to payout. I still have 2 3rd party controllers pending, though.

I sent in my final two packages today. All in all, I should be getting around $1500 total for everything I traded in. Who knew hoarding would eventually pay off?

Picked up some more acceptances today. So far I have two rejections for Star Fox for no manual, and Abe's Oddysee for "severe damage" They both sound like bull to me, but I am up to 430 in credit already. No carts have processed. Hoping for some of those to go through tomorrow, those scare me the most.

just saw on my account that my cartridges from 1 shipment are being returned for the following

Mario is missing, Incorrect region
Game boy Pokemon Blue Incorrect region
Donkey kong country Incorrect region
Battletanx n64 Severe damage
Pokemon Stadium n64 ,Incorrect Disc :roll:

is there a department to write to to at least complain about it and question some of the methods?

I'm at $60 from 1 trade (3 complete GBA games) but as of now all my stuff is in the mail and, finally, my second package is processing. I mailed it Sept. 25th and they got it Tuesday and has been processing since then. 3 other boxes still in transit...

I hope this is not the start of the BS like before. I think I have enough paid out to break even and make out a bit if the rest goes to shit.

You can talk to customer service, they'll rpobably tell you you can resubmit them...I know, the prices are different. You might,I stress might, get lucky and have a CS agent issue you credit for the difference. otherwise SOL.

I hope not too - I was worried I might be the victim of UPS's slow shipping in more ways than one. Ie. by the time my stuff gets there they will have been flooded by all the crap you East Coast and midwestern types are sending in ;). Then the random made-up reasons for rejections start popping up. So far I'll take this as one outlier (since it seems most everyone is getting stuff accepted with no problem). But if we start getting more reports...

tried the chat and got nowhere, just told to resubmit but after explaining the difference in value was still told to resubmit:roll: I just sent an email and will try that route, hopefully i can get something out of it



I cant complain too much though since they did take all my disc only scratched playstation games but it is annoying to be told "incorrect disc" for a n64 game

I guess I should start getting worried now, I submitted 6 games separately and put two in three boxes, two are processing (Resident Evil GC and Beyond Good & Evil) but nothing's showing up for the other 4.

Sure hoping those games aren't lost, although I had heard here that there was a bit of a risk.

Gonna cross my fingers though (I REALLY didn't want to miss out on possibly getting $30 for my old MGS1's so I had to try).

Stop worrying, you are fine. They are flooded right now.

finished shipping off all of my packages from the tiv error today.

almost couldn't actually send them off though. today was the last day to ship them out according to amazon (10/3) but when i went to go print the shipping label at ~4pm, it was gone and said that the shipping deadline had passed. i live chatted with a rep and called a different one on the phone, during which i realized i still had my trade in page up on a different internet browser from last night. clicked on print shipping labels from there and it amazingly worked. :bouncy:

My Super Mario 4 Advance: SMB 3 and Final Fantasy Tactics got rejected for being the wrong item. I guess one of 4 things happened.
1) They are dumbasses.
2) They fucked up my games.
3) SMB4:SMB3 is confusing as Fuck for a title. Didn't know what it was. That I can kinda understand.
4) They switched the games.

FYI...there is a link to print a shipping label in the e-mail confirmation they sent when you submitted the trade-ins. That should work.

May I also suggest that you (and others) look into the many free "print to .pdf" programs out there like PrimoPDF. Print your labels to .pdf when you submit your trade-ins and have them readily available. Who knows when your internet connection is going to go out.

Got paid out on a bunch today, but a lot of random ones from orders didn't pay out or packages that arrived a few days earlier have not paid out yet. weird. everything is still sitting in processing, at least.

I'm experiencing the same problem you guys are facing. Over 10+ cart related games got rejected for being the wrong item, but they accepted all my disc related games. I got a feeling someone in Amazon trade-in management notice the unusually high trade-in, so they tell their employees to reject some games.

I got credited another $59.80 for two more trade-ins (Doom 3 and DOA:XBV), but those two games I mentioned in my recent posts are still "Not Yet Received"...

I know I shouldn't worry, but I'm still getting a bit anxious...:bomb:

Are you guys with the cart-related rejections getting only cart-only stuff rejected, or complete stuff? I have 2 more GBA games on the way, and one of them is SMB 4 Advance: SMB3. They better not eff that up. If they reject it, they better send back the mint/complete box NOT in a padded envelope. I was on the fence about sending that one in in the first place since I could have sold it for around $40 in the mint condition it was in. I just figured $30 with "no hassle" was better than listing and selling for a possible $40. Now I kind of wish I hadn't sent it.
