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.


From my box of 11 gameboy/gameboy advance all were cart only games and 2 were rejected for some unknown reason. It lists "severe damage" but I know they were not.

And my platinum gamecube that arrived there 1 Oct. still hasn't gone into the processing stage. It arrived the same day as my box of gamecube games arrived and those were already paid out now.

I sent in a GameCube under the "good" condition, but it was denied. I had everything but the box included as well.

I literally sent my GBA cart only game as acceptable and it was accepted no problems. I literally just put in the size 0 mailer along with a psx game.

The standalone JSRF is worth a bit, so be careful.

My recent 'received' items (all carts I sent were loose):
Poke Stadium - Unacceptable (I didn't think to put in a xfer pak, which sucks because I've got a bunch laying around)
Mario Golf - Acceptable
Poke Snap - Acceptable
Gauntlet Legends - good

Gen Ristar - Acceptable (Note says missing original packaging, which is BS since it was CIB, maybe because it wasn't a clamshell they were confused. Still, got $21 so I can't complain)
SFAlpha 2 - Acceptable
SSFII - Acc

GBA SMA4: SMB3 - Wrong Item
GBC DWIII - Wrong Item
GBC Harvest Moon - Wrong Item
GC Shadow Hedgehog - Good
(total BS on this set, although there are two cart versions for Harvest, and my other was accepted in a different trade)

SNES Tetris Attack - Acc

So yeah, for the GB stuff in particular they seem to be rejecting stuff a lot more now.

What a joke. They gave me "Wrong Item" on 5/6 GBA games I sent in. Cartridge only. The dream is over. They gave me "incorrect edition" on the reason for why it was not accepted.

I did too put it under "good". I had everything in the box. Mine will probably be denied as well then.

Thanks for the heads up. Hard to gauge value since it seems to be available in that combo package with Sega GT.

From what I see in ebay though, complete packages are going around $25-$35.

One of my orders that never actually hit processing, was stuck in not yet delivered. Updated this morning to give me my gift cards. So maybe it depends on the mood of the worker lol.

I have one more order that is processing (really want this one to go through.. 5 games at $78)

YES. Another $99.60, including $44.00 for the two transactions I thought hadn't been received yet but were really just not updated to "Processing":

Frogger ($30)
NFL Blitz 2001 ($14)
Star Fox Adventures ($25.60)
Wild Arms 2 ($30)

\\:D/

...Now I just have to hope my last cart-only trade (Cabela's Big Game Hunter - GBA) goes through before October 10th, 25 days after I created the transaction. :pray:

Wow, I also just got 2 wrong item rejections for 2 complete GBA games that were both in like new condition. I've never been rejected before. So it seems they do not want to give the credit for these from what I'm reading from others recently. They also took the longest to process.

I sent in 6 from various systems, 4 were completed yesterday or the day before. The 2 GBA games I traded in, however, were just rejected this morning.

You're more than welcome to get pissed off because it _is_ a copout, but this is exactly why I tried to put so many disclaimers in front of this before people started sending stuff in. Amazon a while back added an explicit clause in their trade-in rules that basically states that they can deny stuff for any reason or no reason at all whenever they like. It sucks for sure, but the unwieldy monster that is the random tiv generator script they use has bitten them on the ass so many times (look at the 2nd post to see the amazing $500 dvd box set trade) that I can't really blame them for not wanting to pay $30 for a cartridge I picked up at the thrift store for $0.50.

At least they don't resort to bans and actually try to fix their problems while providing a decent trade-in alternative to bby/gs. Normally I'm not an amazon apologist but this whole situation reeked of Fuck up and for the most part they've made good on it for whatever reason.

Hmm, getting the same problem as alot of other people are having. GC games are being accepted but cartridge games are being denied for the wrong edition. Lame :(

EDIT: LAWL I talked to a rep through chat and she kept insisting that all my games were actually books, and that my trade-in order contained none of these books.

Wrong edition denials on a couple of carts this morning. I say Fuck Amazon just based on the simple fact of taking over a week to fix this shit. They should use the tracker themselves and then they would have seen the problem day 1 and could have worked towards fixing the TIVs. There's no excuse for this to take 1-2 weeks to fix-- it's just really awful risk mitigation on their part. I'm sending them an email with one consolidated list of their BS denials to see if I can get any promotional consideration from them.
If they don't pull the same BS on the disc stuff, I should be fine, but still disappointing that Amazon jerks us around like this when that critical error on their end stuck around way too long.

Still, we are very lucky to even get some accepted trades. I am thankful for that.

EDIT: Got FFVII accepted, so hopefully disc games are golden for a little while longer. They even upgraded it from acceptable to good.

Haha, there are comments that Amazon that they can read that we can't. My two cart denials had "overpriced" in the comments. At least they're honest there, we just aren't priveleged to see it. Based on that though the rep gave me promo credits for their value. I wasn't gunning for that, I wanted to see Amazon chat's answer on why cart games are getting denied for the lulz, but the rep did me a rock solid and offered me the credit unexpectedly.

EDIT: Just had a 10 disc game order, with 1 cart, pushed through with all appropriate values. The cart WAS a DS game though, with a normal, non-fucked up value. They apparently only hate paying 21 bucks for a cart worth two bucks. Can't blame them.

EDIT2: Couple of Pokemon carts for GB just got denied. Those actually sell for 10.00 each, so no major loss I suppose. Still, they've got a massive hard on for denying the carts all of a sudden. Every disc game processed today was approved.

I should mention all of my 'wrong' denials were for cart only games. some of them weren't even the $21 games. They were like $6-$8. All of them were also shipped separately, so they must have piled them up to deny them.
