Some of the values dropped already, Mario Galaxy 2 says $39 but when you add it to trade in, it shows $32.

Forza 4 is the only higher value that stands out to me. Most of the values for games I purchased and considered trading were this high a week ago.

I can only hope that Best Buy has some very great success with their trade-in program, forcing Amazon to at least try to offer incentives to trade-in there in the future.

Battlefield 3 on PS3 has a trade-in value of $40.50. I may just have to let mine go for that price. inFAMOUS 2 trades in for $29.85 as well :)

Pretty sure they will accept it. I think it was the same for bfbc2. UPC should be the same.

There is no separate listing for limited edition so I imagine they would take it.

There is a separate listing, it's just not eligible for trade-ins. But like others have said, the UPC of either leads to the standard version so it doesn't matter.

Sold back 7 games for $101. Bought the 7 games for $82 so I am happy. Infamous 2 netted me over $10 alone.

Several titles went way down on my spreadsheet overnight. Games that were $8 yesterday are $5 today. Only two titles went up (Uncharted and Soul Calibur 4).

methinks amazon will increase the prices after this "one day sale" is over.

Looks like this is real hit or miss. FORZA 4 went up to $40 so I'm glad I held out for a few days. Also traded in FAMILY GAME NIGHT 3 which went from $7 to $12. Everything else in my list stayed the same but I'll take the extra $12 on those two anyway.

I have no idea where Black Ops was before but it's 19.50 right now. It was probably higher before MW3 came out but I didn't even think about trading it in until I saw it on this list.

If I remember correctly, it was around 18 on 360 yesterday.

Sonic Generations went up to a $35.10 TIV, so needless to say, I'm trading that in. I only paid $17.99 for it on release, so that's quite a nice little profit from playing it.

You know you don't have to track values and you can just use the tracker? ;)

Really tempted to trade in Arkham City and Infamous 2. Not sure if I'll how likely it'll be that I'll really want to replay them again.

Much to my own surprise I've been having Arkham City withdrawl ever since I traded it in. I'm cuckoo for those stupid Batman games.

Might be worth locking in Batman and Uncharted 3 and then if I get them at Best Buy at the BF presale for Silver members I can trade my current copies in. MGS4 for $11.35 is not a bad price either.

Just a heads up Blue but I believe there are different UPCs for Batman AC. BB has the robin code while Amazon included a comic book in their version for preorders iirc. I figure you probably looked up your SKU already but just a heads up if you werent aware.

I think it really depends on where you live. For us West Coasters it really can't be sent much after the deadline because of the 7-9 days shipping time for UPS Groundsloth. If you live near NorAm you can probably push it to a week past the deadline. The most I've ever waited is 1 day after the deadline - had no problems with that ;).


I'm on the West Coast, and I've actually gone 4-5 days after the deadline before. But that's a bigger risk, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Side note: I actually have a trade-in order locked in on Oct. 4 (which I'm not planning on shipping), but it hasn't "expired" yet. Amazon used to automatically expire trade-ins after ~3 weeks of locking it in (which gave me an idea of how long after the deadline I could ship and still have it accepted); have they stopped doing this? I really hope this isn't an indication of Amazon going super strict on shipping deadlines...

no, itll still get denied as expired. Games have to be processed by the 25th day to be valid. So they pretty much have to get there by the 22nd day to be ok.

Just to share, I've been trading in to Amazon since forever and just today got my first rejection. It was a stupid Gamefly PS3 disc with chipped edges (no scratches). I thought PS3 discs would hold up better than Xbox ones, but I guess PS3 renters like to play with their discs. No more Gamefly purchases from me.

If I submit 10 games to trade in but only end up going through with 7, does that have any effect on me because there will be 3 games listed that I won't be trading in?

No, they just won't credit you for the games not received. I usually add a bunch of games to my trades, but then at the last minute decide to omit a few of them (since I usually do quite large trades, sometimes 20+ things).

Awesome thanks. I want to lock in Modern Warfare 3 but I'm not sure if I want to give it up and wanted to think about it for a week.

I liked the game, I just have a feeling I'm not going to play again to gather the 3,258 riddler trophies I missed. :lol:

Just a heads up Blue but I believe there are different UPCs for Batman AC. BB has the robin code while Amazon included a comic book in their version for preorders iirc. I figure you probably looked up your SKU already but just a heads up if you werent aware.



Thanks for the heads up. I think I'm safe, mine was from TRU.

Talk about ass backwards.

Yesterday I locked in Gears 3 and Super Smash Bros Brawl along with 7 other games.

Today they are trading in for about $6 more combined.

Is it okay not to include those games on my first list, and create a second submission today with the higher price?

pop quiz for anyone that's traded in a 3ds - AR cards needed for full value (y/n)? I think one of my little rascals took them and hid them in a mystery location. I have to ship on Monday and the tiv has dropped by a little over $20 so I'd hate to have to resubmit because of those goofy little things.
