Had a 2nd copy of Pokemon Stadium rejected even though they took my first copy just fine (both were cart only). They also rejected DK 64. Castlevania 64, Jet Force Gemini, and Diddy Kong Racing were all accepted today as cart only. I'm still waiting on a few more cart-only games to be accepted...

I had two NES cart only games rejected. Mario 2 and Mario 3. The Mario 3 was in a trade with another Mario 3 that was accepted however. None of my GBA games were rejected. Prob doesn't help anyone but just felt like talking in case anyone cared.

No, this is nice. Gives me a small glimmer of hope for my big package (which moved like freakin' grease lightening for some reason yesterday and got delivered) with about 12 carts in it. I would be very happy to see any of those carts approved. Hoping disc games are still holding up. I have one disc game that's been in processing for two days, so hopefully today that pushes through.
EDIT: Sabanoo, that is great news. You just named off a few N64 carts I sent, so I'd love to see those go through. Still got a bunch of GB stuff in the mix that probably will get denied. But a few items would be better than none.

I just had a few more cart-only games accepted: South Park (N64), Super Mario Land (GB), Super Mario World, Advance Wars, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario Bros 2, and Super Mario Advance 2.

The only rejected games for me ended up being DK64 and my 2nd copy of Pokemon Stadium.

YAAAY

3rd and final package was accepted.
5 cart games:
DKC 2, SNES..21.00 acceptable
Pokemon snap, N64..13.75 acceptable
Super Mario Bros Deluxe, GBC..21.00 acceptable
Harry Potter Chamber/ Secrets, GBA..5.15 acceptable
Power rangers wild force, GBA..15.20 acceptable

So all 3 of my packages were accepted, I got $134.35 in GC from this sending in mostly trash games. Only a few I sent in actually had value / were easy sells.

First rejection today: one of the two copies of Red Dead Revolver (:xbox:) I sent, with the refusal reason stated as "Severe Damage". I'll see how it looks when (if?) I get it back, but unless they're talking about the condition of the disc (which I didn't check), I don't see it as being a viable reason for refusal since it was complete with case and manual (though if the rejected copy is the one I think it is, there was a lot of sticker residue), though yes, I understand that they can refuse anything for any reason.

I've made enough in profit from all this that I could just let it go (case in point: $30 from the other copy of Revolver and $50.70 from Lego Star Wars and CoD2: Big Red One processed this morning); like I said, I'll see how it looks when I get it back.

Got 6 approvals and 2 rejections today. My gc balance is off though. IDK why. Normally it matches my spreadsheet, but it is like $8.05 off or something.

hoping last package goes through today since its been processing a few days (4 GC games, complete)

I should probably do a little spreadsheet for GCs too since the history isn't showing anymore.

My random lock of Transworld Surf for 21.00 that I didn't think would get put to use went through today (THANK YOU Irish, for the game!)
Oddly enough they upgraded me to Good for 30.00. Their perfectly cavalier approach to some of these trades is utterly confusing when the lies about the carts continue. Still, it's appreciated. :p

Now I wait for my big ass package, just went into processing, and my last minute flip which should get delivered early next week and I'll be done with all of this.

I think amazon is blocking old shipping labels from being printed. I can only pull up new trades submitted today. Anyone able to pull up old labels?

Did you try switching out the Trade-In Transaction# in a newer trade for an older trade's Transaction# in the URL?

The last of my games were approved today. 26 out of 26 games approved in total with no rejections for over $600 in credit. All of the games I sent in were complete except for a cart only GB Super Mario Land and NES SMB2. For me this was almost as good as last year's $200 TIV for phat PS2 systems.

Yes those won't work. All old labels, even ones within the normal printing time limit won't work for me, only new ones I do today. I tried it on explorer and chrome.

I think we should start a tally as to how much credit has been made off this.

10 rejections: 1 not working (psone that THEY damaged. I haven't retested it yet.), 3 severe damage (2 have label damage, but should have still been acceptable by their condition standards), 7 wrong edition (all are correct).

18 accepted with appropriate downgrades

12 pending

Be patient. Two of my trade-ins were stuck in "Not Yet Received" for almost a week after they had been received (according to the tracking info) and then I received an email saying they had been processed. So someone just forgot to change the status to "Processing" and the same might be the case for yours.

I'm definitely up for tallying up my profit once I'm done with all my trades (still have ~$100 worth remaining ;)). Also, the Nuclear Strike I submitted was just processed for $29.85. :D

Update: I tested the PSOne and I works just like it did when I sent it in, now it has aqua colored scratches on the top. Thanks NORAM! I will complain to AZ about it eventually. I got back 6 of my rejected games that were 'wrong edition' a few minutes ago and they look like the same games.

No other updates yet.

Yeah, I just contacted customer service, and they told me it is processing, but on my account it still says not yet received so who knows.

Maybe im a glutton for punishment but im enjoying the wait to see what all will be accepted or not. I like hearing everyones thought on the matter and successes and failures and so much more, at least thats how i see it. Its always a new experience that i have with the CAG community and this one is a trip! I initial put 120 in after reading this thread and so far ive had 2 rejections for no manual which i know is bs because i purchased everything the same day and everything was mint, but i have netted 325 so far and would be good with that . But a part of the thrill is the hope the more goes thru! Either way i will have a little extra money for the holidays.Thanks to whomever(looked thru to no avail) discovered this jewel of a deal and thanks CAG and best of luck!

I think I'm royally fucked. 3 of my packages are in processing and one of my packages didn't even make it out of my state. On the tracking page it says "Shipment damaged and will not be delivered." I mailed all 4 packages together at the same time at a UPS store.

What should I do? It had $90 worth of games (Technically I was only going to get $63 because it was 3 cart only gameboy games).

Should I call UPS or Amazon or go to the UPS store or just wait hoping I might someday get my "damaged" package back?

Wrapped and bubble wrap and put into large ziplock bag with packing slip and then put in a little Amazon cardboard box.

It makes no damn sense. The package got damaged somewhere within 3 hours driving distance from my home. I'm upset and not sure what to do at this point.

6 trades (2 sent in late)
all delivered and paid in the last 2 days...:bouncy:

Most were in great shape and none were marked to allow downgrade...

One GBA for $30 but I sent in the complete boxed edition...
and one was a beat to hell Doom (scratched/covers torn off manual/ case with holes) that still got $30 (thanks pete)

sad I didn't get my act together and send in more...

about $275 total... mostly gamecube
