Heads up: I just tried to use my $3 trade in credit form the AC3 trade in and I got that it is expired. It says it is good until 2/11/13 on the email.

BB's at a 100% bonus until Saturday.

Your best bet is trade at BB for $32 then sell the steel on fleabay for $14 and come out ahead $40+


The 50% at Best Buy is a typo. It's still 100% through Saturday.


Oh wow. Thanks guys!! Saw some banner that said 50% bonus so I thought it meant this week (but it actually starts next week). Definitely doing BB then. :)

Hell I'd be glad to send my sealed one to someone for $10. I had a hard time selling one I had on ebay for that much right after release.

Does anyone know what determines the shipping speed on the prepaid label? I submitted a trade in last week and the shipping label was 2nd day air which was nice and got there very fast which I thought was a great change, but I submitted another trade in today and it was UPS ground, which I know is not as fast.

Never seen that before, I've only ever seen run of the mill ups ground.

Ugh, had my first ever rejection for the New Vegas Collector's Edition guide. They said it was the wrong item. I even verified the ISBN before I sent it in, I don't understand how they can say it's the wrong item. Of course now it's worth half of what it was when I sent it in.

Quick Q: If we are sending in only one game to trade in, do we have to use a box or can we use those 6x9 bubble wrapped envelopes?

You could send it wrapped in paper surrounded with duct tape if you were so inclined. envelopes/boxes/whatever are fine.

I've done bubble mailers plenty of times for DS and PS3 games with no problems. You should be fine.

In case of the need for more reassurance, that's the only way I've sent my games in.

if you can get a box ( whether in the trash or wherever u find one ) .... Always use a box to ship your items... UPS processing centers are equipped for packages sorting... Things in bubble mailers takes alot of abuse.

I only use bubble mailers for books shipped to them.

Thanks. Those GS flips tend to come back often so if you ever come across one don't hesitate to pick it up (think they sell for more - they're actually rare). I'd definitely go for the Zumba one if I wasn't perma banned from gs.com.

Be careful with that Zumba game, not sure if AMZ requires the belt for good.

I didn't. It is kind of rare title that fetches far more than that on ebay and even Amazon.

Borderlands 2 for PS3/360 has a TIV of $25.00 for good. Good value for those who paid $25 around black friday and are done with the game. May as well hold out for the eventual complete edition with all the DLC.

Three days late is nothing man

Is the within 25 days thing accurate or just an educated guess? And does allowing the items to be downgraded rather than "return the item" make any difference to whether they give it the full trade in value or accept a late shipment?
I haven't traded in anything since amazon's switch-over to a new company or location or whatever so bear with me.

25 days is accurate. However, it is not a stated policy. No condition/acceptance requirements have any observable affect on trade value/late acceptance.
