Took my 2x each of thrillville ($30) and world of outlaw ($27). Was scared they weren't going to take it cause of disc conditions.

Have 2x AC:Revelations pending. Submitted under a different UPC number. Let's see how that goes.

Also traded in RB 3($20) and 2x beatles rockband from the B1G2 gs deal $15/18 ---> $51


you can always contact amazon CS and ask for what the correct UPC will be. Type it on google and it should be whatever the first link is. It'll give you a barcode you can print out.

Anyone know if you can use another amazon credit in conjuction with the wii credit and 50 dollar promo credit. For those of us who bought the xbox with the 100 credit that would make this real slick. I've never messed with an amazon trade in before, but this has me foaming at the mouth.

updated fp with link to Wii trade-in promo. pretty slick if you're in the market to swap consoles.


Be careful if you're interested in updating your Wii for a new Wii. The new ones have no Gamecube compatability.

Just had a new dvd and dvd set rejected for incorrect condition (both were listed as non-original wrapping). Can't wait to see what I get in return for new items I never opened.

Six Blu-Ray movies I sent them, set as "Like New" condition, were rejected for the same reason.

At the time of my trade-in, there were two conditions, "Like New" and "Good". Now there are three, "New", "Like New" and "Good". "New" items have the same TIV my "Like New" movies did, with one caveat:

It needs to be sealed/shrinkwrapped for it to be considered new.

I checked the trade-in order on the site and they're all listed as "Like New" with the same rejection reason. If I did a new trade-in with the same six movies and the same "Like New" trade-in condition, my $43.45 is now $24.00. :wall:

My guess is NorAm changed things again and they were considered as "New" due to the TIVs for the "Like New" items matching the "New" TIVs. Since they weren't shrinkwrapped, they were sent back.

I sent Amazon a rather lengthy email about the situation and that I'm less than pleased. I'm sure the response should be interesting.

These are exactly the kind of shenanigans I expected when I heard they were accepting things as "New". Sucks to hear about it nonetheless.

There's shenanigans, and there's ducking out of of a trade agreement on something that's isn't even close to correct.

I think they're too stupid to figure out that when they have TIVs that match a different condition than is listed, they blindly change the condition of the item to match the TIV and not just process it as they should for the condition on the trade.

Again, I'm expecting Amazon's response to be interesting.

Wow - I didn't know there was a "new" option. That is interesting as places like GS won't even take things still shrink-wrapped... Is that in place for games, too, now? I think I sent a sealed game in a few days back.

Best condition for video games is 'good' still. After seeing the blu-ray trade in situation when adding "new" I'm hopeful they don't add new conditions to video games either, despite 99% of my games being in like new condition.

I swear I saw someone posting about Rayman minus the art book being accepted but search isn't bringing it up. Did I misremember?

Has anyone done the Wii trade in? I want to get a Ps3 and never use my Wii, so this would be a good time to off load it.
I'm not sure if I will be able to find the packaging or anything, so will that automatically be the acceptable condition? That's only $20..

At least this deal goes until the 31st so I have some time to decide.

LOL. I picked up Dragonbox 4 from Hastings for $12 or so after a coupon last month.

Got em all except for 7... which I'm still waiting for a deal on. EPIC trade though. Wish I was paying attention to this thread last month as I'm farely sure I could find a new copy in Austin (they had at least one last month at Fry's)

Got my "incorrect condition" (non-original wrapping) dvd and dvd set back. The dvd set used a single hub to hold 5 dvds and all of them were rattling around. Surprisingly none of them were scratched. I noticed a chip on the outside of the case and somehow the middle tab that's used to hold inserts on the inside broke off. So they had the pleasure of opening the set, somehow damaged the inside of the case (I'll give that the outside could have been during shipment but I didn't find the chipped part inside the bubble envelope) AND rejected it because of the wrapping. As for the dvd, it wasn't even opened (still had the y flap wrapping and security stickers on the top and bottom), can't come up with a reasonable explanation for that one. This one dropped from $1.05 to $1.00 but I might not bother attempting to trade it in again.

Those two items were part of a trade in that included another new dvd that was accepted. I'll still use the trade in program because it's the best option for me but I get a bit bummed out when things like this happen. I just wish there was an option for the person reviewing each trade to go into more detail on why things are rejected.

I did my trade-in for the 6 BD titles on either the evening of the 28th or the morning of the 29th, and it was only "Like New" and "Good" at that point for conditions, no "New". I can only guess it showed up sometime between the 29th and the 4th, which is from shipment to receipt. The items I sent them were opened and never played, so they certainly fit the "Like New" category, as they were only missing the shrinkwrap that would classify them as "New". The TIVs I had for my "Like New" items are now the TIVs for "New" and the "Like New" TIVs are a bit less as follows:

"New" / "Like New":
$11 / $9.70 (Walking Dead S1)
$5.15 / $1.05 (State Of Play (non-combo))
$5.15 / $4.20 (American Gangster (non-combo))
$8.85 / $5.25 (Chronicles Of Narnia: Voyage Of The Dawn Treader (BD / DVD / DC))
$5.50 / $2.10 (Serenity (non-combo))
$9.00 / $4.20 (Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs (BD / DVD / DC))

Had they done the condition correctly, they would have passed as "Like New" without any issue and I wouldn't have a problem. Since the TIVs I had are now at the "New" levels, they must have assumed they were "New". Since they lacked shrinkwrap, they were rejected as "New", and I never accept a lesser amount for my trade-ins, they were sent back.

Games are still showing "Good" and "Acceptable", so that hasn't changed.

Got my "incorrect condition" (non-original wrapping) dvd and dvd set back. The dvd set used a single hub to hold 5 dvds and all of them were rattling around. Surprisingly none of them were scratched.

I just wish there was an option for the person reviewing each trade to go into more detail on why things are rejected.

I'm hoping my stuff comes back in the same condition I sent them in, and if not, then I'm going to be even more irritated with how it was being handled.

My items were packed perfectly to survive the trip and I'm betting they'll be tossed in a bubble mailer or some other piss-poor packaging on the way back. I've only had one item rejected previously from any trade, and it was accepted on the second time I submitted it. We'll see what happens when I get my items back.
