And how do they test gameboy games anyway? I have a feeling they just slap it in a gameboy and if it does not work the first time they mark it unacceptable.

Got some more payouts and my first rejection. Supposedly Star Fox Adventures was missing its manual. Not sure about that one. Thought that one was in there. Hopefully they take my other Star Fox Adventures, which was in my collection, and I can just replace it with the one that was in my collection.

^^ Did you not select downgrade item when you traded it in? And how much was it trading in for?

And does anyone know if you can contact amazon if the game I get back is damaged? Two of my gameboy games were marked with severe damage.

You can always try. Just know that if they decide to give you the value of the trade-in, it will be in the form of Amazon promotional credit, not gift card credit (only usable on items sold by Amazon.com, so it excludes Warehouse items).

So the moral of the story is Vig is awesome; all glory to the master flipper.

Apparently I have return downgraded items set as default and I didn't even realize it until now. But I was also selecting accurate conditions for everything, so hopefully I should be fine.

What is the best way to contact them if my trade ins were damaged? I wouldn't mind If I received promotional credit since I purchase many things directly from amazon anyway.

You could do a live chat online (be sure to specify that it's a trade-in-related question), or you could call through the phone. I've only used the former method once regarding a trade-in and it wasn't even related to damaged items, so I can't say with certainty which is the better option. Sorry. :-#

Amazon says you should use their general purpose contact page for any questions in regards to trade-ins.

In the picker that comes up for the inquiry reason, there is an option for telling them it's related to a trade-in.

if you read the thread you would notice that it is not a set time frame.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Mine just hit processing after arriving today. A little concerned about the rejections others have mentioned, but just in case I took pictures of every single thing I sent to them.

Mine arrived on Monday with 18 games in the box. Today they finally finished processing 9 of them, crediting me with the condition I listed them in. They also approved a DS game that had been in the lost & found at my job for a few months, so that's cool. Maybe they'll finish the rest by tomorrow.

Hey guys, I shipped out my 7-game, $82 package on last Wednesday, and it was delivered on Friday morning at 11:35 AM. It's mid-Wednesday afternoon, and I'm starting to get worried. Should I be?

Buy a Kindle Fire HD or Nexus 7 with the money you'd spend on an iPod Touch instead. Being a former iPod Touch owner, I can promise you you'll be happy. Both the Kindle and Nexus are 7-inch tablets, and are both cheaper than the iPod. Spare your money!

Just got credited $30 for 007 Nightfire which I bought for 3. Woohoo! I've already blow through most of my credit money buying Man-thing Omnibus, RE 6 and Xcom.

When did your package deliver, out of curiosity?

My trade-in took about 2 days from Processing to payout. I still have 2 3rd party controllers pending, though.

I sent in my final two packages today. All in all, I should be getting around $1500 total for everything I traded in. Who knew hoarding would eventually pay off?

Picked up some more acceptances today. So far I have two rejections for Star Fox for no manual, and Abe's Oddysee for "severe damage" They both sound like bull to me, but I am up to 430 in credit already. No carts have processed. Hoping for some of those to go through tomorrow, those scare me the most.

just saw on my account that my cartridges from 1 shipment are being returned for the following

Mario is missing, Incorrect region
Game boy Pokemon Blue Incorrect region
Donkey kong country Incorrect region
Battletanx n64 Severe damage
Pokemon Stadium n64 ,Incorrect Disc :roll:

is there a department to write to to at least complain about it and question some of the methods?
