Man, tough decisions. Definitely trading in Blops 2 and Forza at those prices, and Madden 13 ($38.50 for 360, yikes). Also pretty tempted to trade-in Hitman and try to beat/trade-in AC3 since both games are likely to drop in the near future. Amazon's doing it's best job at purging the backlog picked up from BF.

great i can move two more copies of forza at that price tomorrow :bouncy:

considering my new madden and ac3 copies as well, although i can probably get more cash out of ac3 and maybe even madden on the local cl.

$38.50 for ACIII is tempting since it's a slightly better value than Gamestop's $37 after PUR...:-k


Well Amazon credit is always better than Gamestop credit.

Yeah, I would have taken a couple dollar less for Amazon credit for my Forza. Too late, though.

My attempt at trading in a like new red 3DS to Amazon for $100 failed. Somehow, the console doesn't work even though it was working perfectly when I mailed it to them. I hope they didn't break it somehow:cry: It is being shipped back to me.

I bet the battery ran out and the person trading it in didn't attempt to plug it in.

$122 for a Cosmo Black 3DS? Count me in!

I hope Amazon keeps the $50 Bonus towards Vita bundles with 3DS trade-in.
Wii also qualifies for $50 towards selected PS3 bundles (was originally 360 as well, but it looks like that was removed...)

Disney's Sing It Family Hits Bundle went up to $20.00 now if you locked it in at $16.25 but some may consider going the Ebay route because they have some recently completed listings that range from $80-100 for the Wii versions which shocked the crap out of me.

This is very true.

Disney's Sing It Family Hits Bundle went up to $20.00 now if you locked it in at $16.25 but some may consider going the Ebay route because they have some recently completed listings that range from $80-100 for the Wii versions which shocked the crap out of me.

I found two copies of the stand-alone Wii version at different Gamestops for $4.99 in "new" condition; I had planned on trading them in at $12.50 each, but on a whim, I listed them in the Amazon marketplace at $29.99 each...and they both sold within 24 hours. :shock: Needless to say, I cancelled the trade-in. :lol:

The same sort of thing happened with the Party Hits bundle for Wii--found new for $4.99, $12.50 trade locked-in, listed for $44.99, sold within a day. It shocks me how much people are willing to pay for stuff. :-#

Don't forget if you took part in getting AC3 with Amazon's goldbox $33 dotd there's also (theoretically) a $3 bonus trade-in credit tied to your account upon validation of your trade. It sucks because I'll likely be unable to resist trading it back in for $41 since I got it for $23 with the Vita coupon.

according to the promo you'll get a promo code for the credit after you lock and get credited for a trade. so no emails no nothing until your trade is accepted I reckon.

Might consider trading in my PS Vita. $150 is pretty good, and I honestly don't touch it anymore.

Great system but after losing my saves after switching to digital I doubt I will touch it again soon.

What are the odds my limited edition ACIII game will be accepted as the game only version? Should I just sell it elsewhere? I already own another copy of the game on ps3. I got the Xbox limited version for the extras as it was $20 cheaper.

How picky is amazon with the upc. I want to trade in the blue/black mario kart 3ds xl bundle, but its not listed (did a upc and title search). Can i just trade it in as the regular blue/black 3ds xl with my mario kart bundle packaging and still get the full like new value?

They're about as picky as the pickiest thing you can think of if you add picky to that.
