I'm pretty sure customer service is in on it, you won't get much and risk the infamous amazon account ban for complaining too much.


I'm pretty happy with what I've got but I've heard of scenarios in the past where people have gotten the quoted TIVs by calling. Someone I know managed to get the $270 trade in value for Dream, Dance, Cheer on Wii by complaining to customer service.

It'd be a different scenario if they said the item was damaged, "incorrect edition" is totally false in every way.

Yes, but since we aren't sending the magical gold-plated $30 versions of these games I guess they are by default "incorrect edition" ;).

My shipping label is a broken image when I try to print it. Anyone else having that issue?

Yup me too! (phew I thought it was just me, or that they had stopped giving access to expired ship date labels ;)) I guess I'll do it tomorrow. As far a GC games from Gamestop, I found most of the gems by having them print out a list of their inventory. There are ALWAYS more games in yellow sleeves than there are display cases. I did find a couple cheap and complete Buffy vampire slayer XBOX and a complete psx Frogger today. 90 more bucks booyah!

My last single item credited this evening, so I've not had any issues or any rejections. 100% success rate with 40-something items.

on your trade in page where it says returned/unacceptable to the right of the denied game there's a link that says incorrect condition or something of the sort. click on that and it will tell you.

I don't think anyone can answer this for you. They might or they might not. As you can see from reading through the thread stuff is taken or not taken rather randomly.

I had two NES cart only games rejected. Mario 2 and Mario 3. The Mario 3 was in a trade with another Mario 3 that was accepted however. None of my GBA games were rejected. Prob doesn't help anyone but just felt like talking in case anyone cared.

Had a 2nd copy of Pokemon Stadium rejected even though they took my first copy just fine (both were cart only). They also rejected DK 64. Castlevania 64, Jet Force Gemini, and Diddy Kong Racing were all accepted today as cart only. I'm still waiting on a few more cart-only games to be accepted...

No, this is nice. Gives me a small glimmer of hope for my big package (which moved like freakin' grease lightening for some reason yesterday and got delivered) with about 12 carts in it. I would be very happy to see any of those carts approved. Hoping disc games are still holding up. I have one disc game that's been in processing for two days, so hopefully today that pushes through.
EDIT: Sabanoo, that is great news. You just named off a few N64 carts I sent, so I'd love to see those go through. Still got a bunch of GB stuff in the mix that probably will get denied. But a few items would be better than none.

I just had a few more cart-only games accepted: South Park (N64), Super Mario Land (GB), Super Mario World, Advance Wars, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario Bros 2, and Super Mario Advance 2.

The only rejected games for me ended up being DK64 and my 2nd copy of Pokemon Stadium.

YAAAY

3rd and final package was accepted.
5 cart games:
DKC 2, SNES..21.00 acceptable
Pokemon snap, N64..13.75 acceptable
Super Mario Bros Deluxe, GBC..21.00 acceptable
Harry Potter Chamber/ Secrets, GBA..5.15 acceptable
Power rangers wild force, GBA..15.20 acceptable

So all 3 of my packages were accepted, I got $134.35 in GC from this sending in mostly trash games. Only a few I sent in actually had value / were easy sells.

First rejection today: one of the two copies of Red Dead Revolver (:xbox:) I sent, with the refusal reason stated as "Severe Damage". I'll see how it looks when (if?) I get it back, but unless they're talking about the condition of the disc (which I didn't check), I don't see it as being a viable reason for refusal since it was complete with case and manual (though if the rejected copy is the one I think it is, there was a lot of sticker residue), though yes, I understand that they can refuse anything for any reason.

I've made enough in profit from all this that I could just let it go (case in point: $30 from the other copy of Revolver and $50.70 from Lego Star Wars and CoD2: Big Red One processed this morning); like I said, I'll see how it looks when I get it back.

Got 6 approvals and 2 rejections today. My gc balance is off though. IDK why. Normally it matches my spreadsheet, but it is like $8.05 off or something.

hoping last package goes through today since its been processing a few days (4 GC games, complete)

I should probably do a little spreadsheet for GCs too since the history isn't showing anymore.

My random lock of Transworld Surf for 21.00 that I didn't think would get put to use went through today (THANK YOU Irish, for the game!)
Oddly enough they upgraded me to Good for 30.00. Their perfectly cavalier approach to some of these trades is utterly confusing when the lies about the carts continue. Still, it's appreciated. :p

Now I wait for my big ass package, just went into processing, and my last minute flip which should get delivered early next week and I'll be done with all of this.

Did you try switching out the Trade-In Transaction# in a newer trade for an older trade's Transaction# in the URL?

The last of my games were approved today. 26 out of 26 games approved in total with no rejections for over $600 in credit. All of the games I sent in were complete except for a cart only GB Super Mario Land and NES SMB2. For me this was almost as good as last year's $200 TIV for phat PS2 systems.

10 rejections: 1 not working (psone that THEY damaged. I haven't retested it yet.), 3 severe damage (2 have label damage, but should have still been acceptable by their condition standards), 7 wrong edition (all are correct).

18 accepted with appropriate downgrades

12 pending

Be patient. Two of my trade-ins were stuck in "Not Yet Received" for almost a week after they had been received (according to the tracking info) and then I received an email saying they had been processed. So someone just forgot to change the status to "Processing" and the same might be the case for yours.

I'm definitely up for tallying up my profit once I'm done with all my trades (still have ~$100 worth remaining ;)). Also, the Nuclear Strike I submitted was just processed for $29.85. :D
