sending a box out that has a ship date for the 30th on monday should be okay, right? UPS doesn't even pickup on weekends.

Repeating a question someone else asked earlier that I didn't see an answer to: Has anyone traded in GC Animal Crossing without the memory card? What was the result? I'd kind of like to hang on to the memory card, but will include it if needed.

I just sent in animal crossing yesterday without, but I doubt you will be able to wait that long to see what happens.

Assuming to get the highest condition you need all original packaging and contents I would say its needed.

OK, so I might be getting nervous for no reason, but there are two of my transactions still processing (cart-only GBA trades--Godzilla: Domination and Cabela's Big Game Hunger) that I created exactly 25 days ago (9/15), and I have no idea why they're taking so long (they arrived at AFS on 9/26 according to the tracker); will they be deemed expired starting tomorrow because of how long it's been since the creation of the trade-ins and if so, should I contact Amazon CS about the issue?

To add to that I have a number of trades from the 16th still processing....one trade had 24 items in it: they received it on the 25th and the complete games were paid on the 27th the cart only stuff was paid on the 28th(I did in fact get $21 for a cart only dk64) and the disc only stuff is still stuck in processing.

Really holding my breath with these trades because I am all in on this one.

One of my trade-ins says "still not received" when they actually received it last week according to the tracking. Does it work out itself or do you need to contact customer service to resolve the problem? I sent in other boxes as well and they were all marked "processing" while one has actually paid out already.


It'll work itself out, and even if it doesn't amazon cs will ask that you wait until right around when the trade-in would expire anyways. So, patience.

I have always held that Mathematics is not the same as Arithmetic.

So... I got my package sent back to me by UPS with the shipping label I had stuck on the box inside the box, along with the box contents all fucked up (the games were laying on top of my tracking sheets instead of neatly laid on top like I packed it) NorAm's label was for 10 lbs while UPS weighed it at 6... so... uh... what the Fuck was the point of that? It was also my largest value box.

Fuck you, UPS.

Yikes, sorry to hear that. I noticed that the shipping label I printed out for my Star Fox Adventures trade-in (the only title in that trade-in) had "3 LBS." at the top while the prior ones I'd printed had "1 LB.", and since there's no way Gamecube games weigh 3 lbs., I found that a bit odd. The package did arrive at AFS, though, so I guess UPS didn't think the same thing. :???:

The weights on the labels don't make any difference. Sounds like maybe your package got opened by mistake FoS. Was there any damage to the box? I tape the hell out of my label - pretty much cover it completely with clear tape. So there's no way they could send it back to me in the box even if they wanted to ;).

I have a trade-in worth ~$150 for 7 Dreamcast games due to be delivered today. The values for these titles have completely tanked since I submitted my trade. Is that normal?

It sure is, Amazon trade-ins seem to always wildly fluctuate, sometimes stuff goes from $22 to $10 before you know it, and in this case, those crazy high Trade-in values seem to be going back to normal (locked in and sent in two original Metal Gear Solid's for $30 a piece when it's an incredibly common game).

Same here; I (and my mom who occasionally helps out with packaging when I don't have the time) pretty much guarantee that the package cannot be reused due to the amount of packing tape on it. ;)

Had a BUNCH of cart only games downgraded to acceptable (as expected) just now. I'll take $21 a piece for those all day long. My perfect condition cart only Pokemon Stadium was marked unacceptable as some other people here have mentioned. For whatever reason, they are still processing Super Mario Bros. Deluxe and Donkey Kong Country. Anyways, looks like all the values are being honored.

Had my last two trades accepted today! Phew, I was concerned after having a cartridge denied for a made up reason. Still deciding whether to contact Amazon about that or not.

Let us know what happens with your DKC, mine was returned for heavy damage and I'm still not sure why.

haha same here with the thursday part. i'm f5'ing the page every 15 mins.

i have 6 more trade ins to send in and had a question though. one of my trades is 2 cart only gb games, i was planning on using quite a small box to ship them, but the shipping label when printed would be too big for it. is it okay to resize a label in paint or something a little bit to make it smaller or will it not scan then?
