Man you guys went crazy. I'm going to have to add mine up once they come in. Right now I am at $81 from the 3 trades.


I'm at $60 from 1 trade (3 complete GBA games) but as of now all my stuff is in the mail and, finally, my second package is processing. I mailed it Sept. 25th and they got it Tuesday and has been processing since then. 3 other boxes still in transit...

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?


I hope this is not the start of the BS like before. I think I have enough paid out to break even and make out a bit if the rest goes to shit.

You can talk to customer service, they'll rpobably tell you you can resubmit them...I know, the prices are different. You might,I stress might, get lucky and have a CS agent issue you credit for the difference. otherwise SOL.

I hope not too - I was worried I might be the victim of UPS's slow shipping in more ways than one. Ie. by the time my stuff gets there they will have been flooded by all the crap you East Coast and midwestern types are sending in ;). Then the random made-up reasons for rejections start popping up. So far I'll take this as one outlier (since it seems most everyone is getting stuff accepted with no problem). But if we start getting more reports...

tried the chat and got nowhere, just told to resubmit but after explaining the difference in value was still told to resubmit:roll: I just sent an email and will try that route, hopefully i can get something out of it



I cant complain too much though since they did take all my disc only scratched playstation games but it is annoying to be told "incorrect disc" for a n64 game

I guess I should start getting worried now, I submitted 6 games separately and put two in three boxes, two are processing (Resident Evil GC and Beyond Good & Evil) but nothing's showing up for the other 4.

Sure hoping those games aren't lost, although I had heard here that there was a bit of a risk.

Gonna cross my fingers though (I REALLY didn't want to miss out on possibly getting $30 for my old MGS1's so I had to try).

Stop worrying, you are fine. They are flooded right now.

finished shipping off all of my packages from the tiv error today.

almost couldn't actually send them off though. today was the last day to ship them out according to amazon (10/3) but when i went to go print the shipping label at ~4pm, it was gone and said that the shipping deadline had passed. i live chatted with a rep and called a different one on the phone, during which i realized i still had my trade in page up on a different internet browser from last night. clicked on print shipping labels from there and it amazingly worked. :bouncy:

My Super Mario 4 Advance: SMB 3 and Final Fantasy Tactics got rejected for being the wrong item. I guess one of 4 things happened.
1) They are dumbasses.
2) They fucked up my games.
3) SMB4:SMB3 is confusing as Fuck for a title. Didn't know what it was. That I can kinda understand.
4) They switched the games.

FYI...there is a link to print a shipping label in the e-mail confirmation they sent when you submitted the trade-ins. That should work.

May I also suggest that you (and others) look into the many free "print to .pdf" programs out there like PrimoPDF. Print your labels to .pdf when you submit your trade-ins and have them readily available. Who knows when your internet connection is going to go out.

Got paid out on a bunch today, but a lot of random ones from orders didn't pay out or packages that arrived a few days earlier have not paid out yet. weird. everything is still sitting in processing, at least.

I'm experiencing the same problem you guys are facing. Over 10+ cart related games got rejected for being the wrong item, but they accepted all my disc related games. I got a feeling someone in Amazon trade-in management notice the unusually high trade-in, so they tell their employees to reject some games.

Can't we complain to amazon customer service and get credited anyway?

I got credited another $59.80 for two more trade-ins (Doom 3 and DOA:XBV), but those two games I mentioned in my recent posts are still "Not Yet Received"...

I know I shouldn't worry, but I'm still getting a bit anxious...:bomb:

Are you guys with the cart-related rejections getting only cart-only stuff rejected, or complete stuff? I have 2 more GBA games on the way, and one of them is SMB 4 Advance: SMB3. They better not eff that up. If they reject it, they better send back the mint/complete box NOT in a padded envelope. I was on the fence about sending that one in in the first place since I could have sold it for around $40 in the mint condition it was in. I just figured $30 with "no hassle" was better than listing and selling for a possible $40. Now I kind of wish I hadn't sent it.

From my box of 11 gameboy/gameboy advance all were cart only games and 2 were rejected for some unknown reason. It lists "severe damage" but I know they were not.

And my platinum gamecube that arrived there 1 Oct. still hasn't gone into the processing stage. It arrived the same day as my box of gamecube games arrived and those were already paid out now.

I sent in a GameCube under the "good" condition, but it was denied. I had everything but the box included as well.

I literally sent my GBA cart only game as acceptable and it was accepted no problems. I literally just put in the size 0 mailer along with a psx game.


Noticed value on Jet Set Radio Xbox went up today.. think i have that laying around somewhere

The standalone JSRF is worth a bit, so be careful.

My recent 'received' items (all carts I sent were loose):
Poke Stadium - Unacceptable (I didn't think to put in a xfer pak, which sucks because I've got a bunch laying around)
Mario Golf - Acceptable
Poke Snap - Acceptable
Gauntlet Legends - good

Gen Ristar - Acceptable (Note says missing original packaging, which is BS since it was CIB, maybe because it wasn't a clamshell they were confused. Still, got $21 so I can't complain)
SFAlpha 2 - Acceptable
SSFII - Acc

GBA SMA4: SMB3 - Wrong Item
GBC DWIII - Wrong Item
GBC Harvest Moon - Wrong Item
GC Shadow Hedgehog - Good
(total BS on this set, although there are two cart versions for Harvest, and my other was accepted in a different trade)

SNES Tetris Attack - Acc

So yeah, for the GB stuff in particular they seem to be rejecting stuff a lot more now.

What a joke. They gave me "Wrong Item" on 5/6 GBA games I sent in. Cartridge only. The dream is over. They gave me "incorrect edition" on the reason for why it was not accepted.

I did too put it under "good". I had everything in the box. Mine will probably be denied as well then.

Thanks for the heads up. Hard to gauge value since it seems to be available in that combo package with Sega GT.

From what I see in ebay though, complete packages are going around $25-$35.

no box=automatic acceptable condition.
