Anyone traded in a 3DS? I'm planning on trading in my Black 3DS (picked up the FE bundle), and I was wondering if I should take the screen protectors that I have on it off or not.

I haven't checked Gamecube trade-ins for a long time. Do the Zelda titles always have such a high TiV?

Wind Waker - $24.45 (actually it's already dropped to $23.90)
Twilight Princess -$19.25

Yeah, I think they're technically rare now (their used prices are high at Gamestop, anyway).

A number of decent tiv bumps for random stuff overnight, worth checking if you've been waiting to trade something. Mostly consoles and some newer games.

Yeah, sometimes they'll climb back up to $30.

I think Forza is still pretty high over at GS. It's definitely more than $20.

number of jumps overnight, check the tracker. As always, mostly rarer stuff. This gem is back:

http://www.amazon.co...?tag=scurker-20

Which can sometimes be found at best buy / gamestop new or used for $15 or less.

Edit: Looks like Warriors Orochi 3 :360: is trading for 28.60 right now, so it can be a gamestop or bby credit mover if anyone needs one.

While $30 is nice for that, I was able to sell two copies on the Amazon marketplace for more than $50 each, so it might be more profitable to go that route.

Based on the prices for Warriors Orochi 3 ($53.95 the cheapest used price), the same reasoning might apply. It's a bit better than a credit mover at GS if you use the 20% off coupon with PUR (~$20 vs. $25.19).

Aw...missed that one; that's what I get for watching Argo when you posted this. :cry: It dropped to $0.25 awfully fast.

There was a promo in which you receive $3 extra credit for purchasing Assassin's Creed 3.

I know that I purchased it and traded stuff in afterwards but I never received my extra trade in credit. I looked at all my emails for promotional credit and purchases etc. and can't find anything. I was given $3 credit towards video streaming and $3 towards a game download but there was no mention of trade-in credit.

It is until 3/31/2013 for the video credit and 1/11/2013 for the video game credit.
Anyone know the date that you had to make the trade in by?

Sorry if this has been mentioned but...

I just got an option after submitting a trade to get my gift card immediately for my trade, or wait until my items have been received. Is this new? Looks like if I choose the immediate option, they require credit card info in case you don't ship the items or they're graded lower/returned.

Interesting... I've never seen this before, but I'm seeing it now.

It must be a new option that they added.

Wow; I can guarantee this option being a real disaster for someone, at some point. They will get overzealous with their 'fronted' credit, only to have the games returned for some bs reason, or never show up at all, then their cards will be charged for the credit.

Is anyone else not getting their stuff upgraded? I would describe pretty much all of the stuff I send in as in like new condition, but I mark it as good just to be on the safe side. Out of the last 25 things I've sent in only one has been upgraded to like new condition. It's kind of annoying.

So then isn't it better to have it marked as new and let them downgrade?

You have things ass backwards. Why would you lower the grade of the condition just in case?

Send it in the condition it's in or if anything mark the better condition and let them downgrade it.

Why would you do that? As long as you keep your games scratch free, case crack free, complete and water damage free it's almost 100% going to be accepted as like new.

Why? I think it's a great idea. I get my credit sooner.

Amazon won't get ripped off cause they have your credit card number.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

You won't like it when YOU get ripped off when ups loses your package or NorAm downgrades the condition of the items....then you'll have to haggle to get your money back.

Personally I wouldn't get my CC involved in these trade-ins given how erratic the process can be. Usually it works great, but for the few times it doesn't, I'd hate to have to add another step to correcting a bad situation by having my credit card involved -- but YMMV I guess.

eh.. i've not ever had UPS lose my package. I imagine amazon would take care of the situation for me real fast if UPS lost it.

And I don't choose downgrade option so I'm good. Amazon already has my credit card info (amazon card) so what's the difference.
