So, I guess you'll be doing a lot of :pray: and hopefully ending up with \\:D/ by the time it's done with?

Two of my shipments that arrived on Thursday were just paid out for full amount.

That's for sure. :bouncy: It's going to be a long day...

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


I had this designated (severe damage) on two GBC Pokemon carts I got back today. Turns out both have dead batteries, but are otherwise fine, so that's a possibility with your DKC cart. Mine were fine when last used, but that could have been a year or more ago, and I was too lazy to check/didn't really think about it. Wish I had, because I have some spare batteries I could have soldered in.

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 ;).

The box was slightly dented near the top-- yeah, I try to tape it closed like a catholic girl at prom. It's absurd they bothered to retape my box to send it back to me instead of retaping the box and label and letting it go on its way. The 1800 number for UPS was pointless-- it took 10 explanations for the guy to understand that UPS tossed my original shipping label inside the box and then made a new label to send it back to the origination address. He kept insisting UPS had no way of knowing where the package was going and that's why it was sent back to my house.

The shipping expiration date was yesterday, so I'm just gonna hope for the best and hope Noram is still honoring the values by the time they get it.

Got $90 today for 3 more ps1 games. Sent my last package of 4 GCs games, hoping for the $120 for those. Delayed shipping since 3 of the 4 games I've never played and I plowed through them last week (Luigis Mansion, Starfox Assault, and Wario World)

All of my stuff is still pending. Received last Wednesday.

BTW, my UPS will never give me a receipt even if I ask for one. The lady always says the same thing "You don't need one. Write down the tracking number." (This is even when I drop off 10-15 items at once). I called customer service and they said it is up to the location. Also they don't do ground pickups on Saturday, only air, so my stuff is still sitting there right now, that I dropped of Saturday morning.

I drop off all of my stuff at Staples and they're always willing to print out a receipt when I ask for one.

Time to find another store if there's another option available for you.

I have the same issue with three UPS Store locations I go to regularly, two give receipts and one doesn't. Thing is, if the package isn't scanned in for some reason and you have the receipt, it works as a proof that UPS has the shipment. Saved my backside once or twice with finding a missing package.

Yeah, I don't have a staples nearby, which is surprising since we have 2 O. Depot, and 2 O. Max stores within 5 miles of each other. the other UPS store is a little farther from my house, but the guy gives me a receipt. He just has funky hours...


EDIT: Yeah shrike, I like checks and balances, so I am paranoid about not having a receipt. People call me paranoid, but I prefer to think of it as thorough.

Fourth shipment is partially paid. GBA game in question out of two games in shipment is still pending. :-s

EDIT: Fifth shipment is also partially paid. Six GBA games are pending, non-GBA game is paid out (7th item out of 7). :-s :-s

The two shipments were also delivered on the 27th.

I have a few games still pending, but most of my games have been accepted, none denied so far! Over $200 in credit and counting! I kinda feel bad about this one, but I locked in two copies of Left 4 Dead 2 last week, and decided to keep one for myself and only send one in. They just gave me credit for two! I'm not complaining and I don't think I did anything wrong. It's not not I can update the quantity after the trade is locked in. . .

This is starting to worry me...All you guys are getting things processed, but the same six are still "Processing" for me (and three others that arrived this morning are still in "Not Yet Received/In Transit" status). :wall:

You'll probably be fine. I had a few that arrived on a Friday and I started getting credited the next Monday/Tuesday. They didn't even credit me all at once for each package. It was for anywhere between one to three games at a time.

I have no idea how their process works but it definitely seems to be fairly unorganized.

Of out what I've sent them, this is what's going on for me:

09/27/12 Delivery date:
Three fully paid out, no GBA games in shipment
Two partially paid out, GBA games pending, non-GBA games paid out, in Processing state
Two in Processing state, all GBA games in shipments
One in Processing state, all non-GBA games in shipment

09/28/12 Delivery date:
Two shipments showing as Not Received, UPS shows as delivered

10/01/12 Delivery date:
One shipment shows as Not Received, UPS shows as delivered

I'd assume they're taking their time with GBA games for some unknown reason.

I am completely shocked but very pleased by the acceptance of locked in values by NORAM. I gotta think its because of the relatively new receiving center and staff. This is their first major glitch ;).

Traded in a PSP and I took out the battery and placed it in the packaging as it was packaged when I bought it new. Left a note to insert battery. It was just denied today because "the console does not work." So frustrating, they obviously did not put the battery back in because the thing worked flawlessly and I have photos of it working before sending it off. If I get a different broken PSP I am going to be pretty upset.

OK, I think I know what to do in the future if Amazon trade-ins take a bit longer to process than I expected: Post my concern in this thread. :razz:

Two more transactions went through (2x Gallop Racer for $60 total, 2x Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers for $58.20 total). \\:D/

Is there a particular reason you have multiple copies of games, out of curiosity?

Uh...other than the fact that two is the limit, no?

I was able to buy those through the Marketplace and they arrived quickly enough that I could mail them. I used Amazon credit on all of them that I basically quintupled with the trade-in. :oops: A risk, I know, but totally worth it.

They rejected my gameboy color because they said it didn't work. I know for a fact it did, I just bet that they didn't want to give me the $85. Or maybe they were too lazy to put in batteries.

Oh. I thought these were games you owned.

I mean, I enjoy Donald Duck Goin' Quackers as much as the next guy, but I couldn't imagine why anyone would own two copies of it.

My copy of Red Dead Revolver that was scratched to shit AND had a former rental sticker around the ring was accepted for $30 today. :bouncy:

It just pains me that that's the only game I have to trade in. :cry:

Well, I got my PSOne back a few minutes ago. They threw it in the same box without some of the packing materials and it has some new scratches (in a different color) on the top cover. I haven't checked the serial, but I believe it is the same console.

On the plus side, my oddworld ps1 that was missing the instruction book, just got accepted for the full 'good' value. $30!

You should have seen my dad when I got one of the copies in the mail two weeks ago: "Goin' Quackers? I've been waiting ages to play this! *does eerily-similar-to-the-real-thing Donald Duck muttering impression*" :shock:
