I started my trade for Assassins Creed 3 last Friday

So if I give it to UPS before they close today they won't reject my offer, right?

Is it worth it to send an item a day after it was due?

I was pissed off this morning when I found out that Amazon wouldn't let me print the shipping label even though I had to send it by 12/21/12 (TODAY).

I emailed Amazon with no response. Then I finally realized I could get the shipping label through the email link still.

What's the worst that happens, they send me the games back?

You can still re-create the shipping label. Just make another tradein for anything, go to the print label for the new tradein.

Replace the Tradein ID and tracking number from the old tradein into the http page that you want to send in, you can get those from you tradein account page.


Question:

1. Since they change a few things. Is the UPS tracking/shipping label still good after the 7 days, I know they tried to limit the printing, but is the shipping label still good after the 7 days? Anyone know how long?

2. Is the tradein still good as long as it is "Processed" within 25 days?

OP says that was reported to not work anymore.

If anyone can answer these that would help too. I dont want to wasted a week+ in them getting my package and deciding to send it back. The value on these is very time sensitive and it seems like the value of new releases is dropping much faster than in the past.

I thought I remember hearing that they've gotten really strict and it needs to be sent out within the 7 days now, however I'm not testing it. Sent my Hitman and Madden out before closing tonight.

Hm...not sure why OP says that URL replace trick doesn't work to get shipping labels. Ive had no trouble right along. Ive run into a problem getting a few things out on time this month (laziness, mostly). And ive been able to reprint old labels and mail out a couple days late with no issues. YMMV I guess.

There was a point when the URL replace trick didn't work (for me anyway), although I haven't traded in for a while so no clue when it was exactly as I'd tried to see if it still worked. It's working now though.

I guess I'll send it out tomorrow. You can still print if you go through your email. Have not tried the other method the OP says does not work since october.

Worst case is they send it back right? I guess its worth the risk.

Yes to both your questions. Dunno how long the UPS label is active for though. I've mailed stuff over a week late (as recently as the week after Thanksgiving: some Max Payne 3 copies I locked in early at AMZ then picked up on the cheap at KMart with a coupon on BF) and as long as your games are Processed by the 25 day mark, then you're golden.

In fact, a couple of my most recent trades hit the 30 day mark before being credited/expired, but I wouldn't push the envelope here...

Edit: Looks like my Max Payne trades were sent in 9 days late, so I can verify that the labels are still active 16 days after creation/lock-in, if that helps...

You should be fine. I'm not even going to send my locked in high-value promo games out until Monday or Wednesday and I don't forsee any problems...

I dropped off a couple of the National Geographic games. I could only find new, but still, 19.99-->30.00 AMZ credit isn't a bad way to transfer GS credit. Assloads of stores had this game new in my area.

If you're not willing to pay $122, then you shouldn't offer that much. My 3ds was declined because "the system was damaged." The hell it was, and they better send the same one back. For god's sake it still had all of the plastic that everything was wrapped in including the one separating the two screens. I cleaned it, inspected it, and fully charged the battery before sending it in. It was in a much larger box surrounded by air packets, and had not a single scratch on it anywhere.

If they send me back a pile of junk, Amazon and I are going to have a real bad time.

haha same here, of course no used copies and no response to my craigslist wanted ad either. maybe someone will respond to my craigslist ad for king kong that i locked in for $20 since i doubt GS will have complete copies..

Sometimes they just decline it because they don't want it anymore for that TIV, or they thought it didn't meet the criteria due to inspecting it in a hurry. I've had a tablet that was like new with all the packaging get returned with damaged accessory as the reason for rejection, but when I got it back it was in the same condition that I mailed it in. Working with nothing damaged. It looked like they didn't even bother plugging it in to actually check it. Just rejected it giving a bs reason.

The Hobbit :xbox: - 30.00

Also, someone buy this:
Complete U.S. SNES Collection


Also again, National Geographic Challenge :wii: still brings 20.00 in, so if you need to move Gamestop credit and still have new (or used) copies in stock that's a good way to do it.
