Did anyone send their Gamestop Assassins creed 3 LE? Did it get accepted?

Does amazon check the trade-in of collector edition more tightly than regular edition? For example, GOW CE.

The skyrim collector's edition for PS3 trades for $122. It's been converted to used in Gamestop so it's unlikely you can find one nowadays but who knows for any of ya'll that get lucky.

I just want to warn others that if someone want to trade Ps3 tomb raider to amazon to get $34 gift card, you should send the outer box case because the UPC is different from the outer box case and the game case. Moreover, you should ship the art book. Someone said he can trade the game back in amazon and keep the artbook, but it is far from the truth as amazon do mind the upc code. That is the reason why most of us got the game with the artbook.

Tomb Raider
Platform: PlayStation 3 EAN: 0662248912776
Submitted Condition: Good Qty: 1
Expected Amount Per Item: $34.00

But the ps3 case one is 662248910420

Haha, I lost $30 on a trade in because I didn't include the one-page manual that basically said "turn controller on and hit buttons." Oh well, I didn't want it anyway and I'm happy with what I got.

What do you mean? They reject your controller and send it back to you?

I traded in an arcade stick. I listed it in "Good" condition but it was downgraded to "Acceptable" and the reason stated was "Missing Manual." It's fine, they still gave me more than I would've got elsewhere, but damn if I would've kept that piece of paper lol.

The difference is $30 between two condition. It is high. What is your TIV of your controller?

It was something like $40 for Good and $12 for Acceptable or something. I have a lot of arcade sticks and honestly I got the better end of the deal. I would not feel right selling it to someone else for $12 haha. It's the Hori EX2. Lightweight and basically designed to stop working without any way to improve it. I struggled to use the stick because the parts were so bad.

Damn, I should send my extra in. Got one way back from BB and GS, paid in credit, each $60.

I kept one to break down for the artbook and statue, traded in the disk for some crazy amount of trade in credit (~$35-$40), kept one intact.

Anyone have an idea of what these are going for now? Seems Ebay lists show them all over the place but I can't find how to filter to completed auctions.

If you type the UPC from the game itself, it brings up the same page just as the UPC of the game w- artbook

Am I reading that right? $20 in credit with any combination of trade-in items worth more than $20?

I wonder what stipulations there'll be on usage of the credit.

I wonder if it'll be a situation where whatever you have to buy is a rip off. Thinking of doing it but I don't like the timed duration of using the credit either.

If you were going to trade something with a TIV >$20 anyway, this promo just makes it an even better trade.

Wait. What does all this mean?

• If you do not purchase the qualifying item when the promotion is in effect, the discount will not apply.
• The promotion applies only to qualifying items sold and shipped by Amazon.com. It does not apply to items sold by other merchants on the Amazon.com web site.
• If you return the qualifying item purchased to obtain the promotional code, we will subtract the value of promotional code from your return credit.

I must buy something from Amazon.com then trade it and it can be cancelled because I bought something from Amazon.com and traded it back?

Wouldn't that disqualify almost everyone? Is this a trap?

"$20 Video game bonus credit" gonna guess a videogame sold by Amazon / AWD.
The wording's confusing but the basic's are trade in ANY game>$20 and get an EXTRA $20 bonus credit for use on VIDEOGAMES sold by amazon and shipped by amazon, bonus credit may not last forever.

I'm guessing the listed date of July 31 is the expiration date of the credit.

I suppose I won't be too fussed if the $20 turns out to be only applicable to crap being sold at MSRP, since I'm going to be trading in some stuff to move GS credit to Amazon anyway, but it'd be nice to know whether it's garbage or not.

FYI, I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the terms and conditions that the game you buy with the $20 credit has to be in stock...so conceivably, you could use it to preorder something sold by Amazon, whether it releases before 7/31 or not (obvious examples for games releasing before 7/31 are The Last of Us Survival Edition, Muramasa Rebirth LE, Project X Zone, etc.).

I'm sorry, but it seems pretty obvious that this is for any game sold by Amazon. Same as they do with bonus credit for preordering. You get $x.xx amount of credit that can only apply to video games. If it was for specific items, they would have a list.
