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


Update: I tested the PSOne and I works just like it did when I sent it in, now it has aqua colored scratches on the top. Thanks NORAM! I will complain to AZ about it eventually. I got back 6 of my rejected games that were 'wrong edition' a few minutes ago and they look like the same games.

No other updates yet.

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

Yeah, I just contacted customer service, and they told me it is processing, but on my account it still says not yet received so who knows.

Maybe im a glutton for punishment but im enjoying the wait to see what all will be accepted or not. I like hearing everyones thought on the matter and successes and failures and so much more, at least thats how i see it. Its always a new experience that i have with the CAG community and this one is a trip! I initial put 120 in after reading this thread and so far ive had 2 rejections for no manual which i know is bs because i purchased everything the same day and everything was mint, but i have netted 325 so far and would be good with that . But a part of the thrill is the hope the more goes thru! Either way i will have a little extra money for the holidays.Thanks to whomever(looked thru to no avail) discovered this jewel of a deal and thanks CAG and best of luck!

I think I'm royally fucked. 3 of my packages are in processing and one of my packages didn't even make it out of my state. On the tracking page it says "Shipment damaged and will not be delivered." I mailed all 4 packages together at the same time at a UPS store.

What should I do? It had $90 worth of games (Technically I was only going to get $63 because it was 3 cart only gameboy games).

Should I call UPS or Amazon or go to the UPS store or just wait hoping I might someday get my "damaged" package back?

Wrapped and bubble wrap and put into large ziplock bag with packing slip and then put in a little Amazon cardboard box.

It makes no damn sense. The package got damaged somewhere within 3 hours driving distance from my home. I'm upset and not sure what to do at this point.

6 trades (2 sent in late)
all delivered and paid in the last 2 days...:bouncy:

Most were in great shape and none were marked to allow downgrade...

One GBA for $30 but I sent in the complete boxed edition...
and one was a beat to hell Doom (scratched/covers torn off manual/ case with holes) that still got $30 (thanks pete)

sad I didn't get my act together and send in more...

about $275 total... mostly gamecube

Better contact UPS to see what can be done. Logically, the damaged one should be returned back to you, but it sounds like it's been some time since the damage occurred?

Also, aren't UPS packages all covered by $100 insurance automatically? Maybe that's something to look into as well.

Yes those won't work. All old labels, even ones within the normal printing time limit won't work for me, only new ones I do today. I tried it on explorer and chrome.


So yea, what is the workaround for this? Can I use an old packing slip with a new UPS label then? I have a trade in I want to ship tomorrow but I can't create a new transaction because a couple of the items have dropped in value.

If I remember right with a damaged or undelivered shipment if you contact amazon they'll have you wait the requisite 25 days or whatever and then they'll either pay out or try to get you to work with ups. I'd get the ball rolling now though.

That should be fine as it is what I did yesterday. Since you're shipping out past the 7 days anyway, it's not like the correct/original tracking number for your trade-in will do any good with regards to evidence if your trade happens to expire before being processed. So, yes, just be sure to include the original packing slip with the all important, trade-in specific bar code!

While that may seem silly (I assume you are joking) we should all be glad they have that $30 maximum implemented for most games. Their automatic pricing system used to come up with completely wacky values ($60-$200 or more) for games when they were high-priced on the Amazon Marketplace but weren't necessarily worth much anywhere else. They were way more likely to reject stuff for bogus reasons when that was the case. At least with a lot of these recent "glitched" games $30 isn't too far off the real value and that's why most of them have been accepted.

Not really the right place to ask this, but you guys all seem to know Amazon policies pretty well. Is there any way to cash out my gift card balance? I'm trying to save for something (that I can't buy on Amazon) and I'd prefer to have that in my savings. I just can't find any decent way to do it besides buying GS gift cards and selling them. Anybody know some tricks?

...Of course, I could take it off your hands for $40...:lol:

On-topic, I'm getting worried about the cart-only Cabela's Big Game Hunter (GBA) that's still "Processing" because four days from now (10/10) marks 25 days from when I created the trade-in transaction, and it's been sitting at AFS for 10 days now (according to the tracker). I doubt they'll process anything over the weekend and Columbus Day is on Monday, so there's really only one business day on which it could go through. I'm contemplating contacting Amazon's CS on Tuesday evening if nothing happens by then.
