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.


Better contact UPS to see what can be done. Logically, the damaged one should be returned back to you, but it sounds like it's been some time since the damage occurred?

Also, aren't UPS packages all covered by $100 insurance automatically? Maybe that's something to look into as well.

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.


So yea, what is the workaround for this? Can I use an old packing slip with a new UPS label then? I have a trade in I want to ship tomorrow but I can't create a new transaction because a couple of the items have dropped in value.

Well, they accepted my Super Street Fighter 2 SNES for 30 so all my trades were accepted.

If I remember right with a damaged or undelivered shipment if you contact amazon they'll have you wait the requisite 25 days or whatever and then they'll either pay out or try to get you to work with ups. I'd get the ball rolling now though.

That should be fine as it is what I did yesterday. Since you're shipping out past the 7 days anyway, it's not like the correct/original tracking number for your trade-in will do any good with regards to evidence if your trade happens to expire before being processed. So, yes, just be sure to include the original packing slip with the all important, trade-in specific bar code!

I couldn't get a label to print, but clicking on the add another label button worked.

Woot! Earthbound is $30! Luckily I still have the box and guide so I should get full credit.

While that may seem silly (I assume you are joking) we should all be glad they have that $30 maximum implemented for most games. Their automatic pricing system used to come up with completely wacky values ($60-$200 or more) for games when they were high-priced on the Amazon Marketplace but weren't necessarily worth much anywhere else. They were way more likely to reject stuff for bogus reasons when that was the case. At least with a lot of these recent "glitched" games $30 isn't too far off the real value and that's why most of them have been accepted.

Not really the right place to ask this, but you guys all seem to know Amazon policies pretty well. Is there any way to cash out my gift card balance? I'm trying to save for something (that I can't buy on Amazon) and I'd prefer to have that in my savings. I just can't find any decent way to do it besides buying GS gift cards and selling them. Anybody know some tricks?

^ Nope! Unless you buy items you then resell for cash.

Hey:

^The man speaks the truth.

...Of course, I could take it off your hands for $40...:lol:

On-topic, I'm getting worried about the cart-only Cabela's Big Game Hunter (GBA) that's still "Processing" because four days from now (10/10) marks 25 days from when I created the trade-in transaction, and it's been sitting at AFS for 10 days now (according to the tracker). I doubt they'll process anything over the weekend and Columbus Day is on Monday, so there's really only one business day on which it could go through. I'm contemplating contacting Amazon's CS on Tuesday evening if nothing happens by then.

I'm getting depressed looking at my pic. That is $135+ in credit I missed out on. Not counting the PSone ($60 minimum) and power rangers ($25+), pokemon stadium, and whatever else they are returning. :cry:

My plan is using the credit on Wii U system(s), should Amazon wind up selling them. WORSE case scenario is you break even, I can't imagine them selling less than MSRP. Hopefully they're in demand and you can make a little cheddar on top.

I guess I should be happy I focused my flipping on disc based games. I did pick up a few goozex 100 pt cart games I can toss. I had most of my valuable gba and n64 accepted early in my first few submissions. Still hard to believe Amazon paid out as much as they did

So how many days exactly are you guys having to wait from the day your trade is delivered to when you finally get the amazon gift card payment? I hope it isn't much more than a week because several of my trades will expire by then.

When you mean "expired", do you mean that it will be past the "Send by" date on the printed-out shipping label or past 25 days since you created the trade-in? If it's the former, you don't have to worry, but if it's the latter, you might have to contact Amazon Customer Service.

As for how long it takes, it varies, though I'd say about 4-7 days is the average for me, depending on when I dropped off a trade-in for UPS to ship (e.g., on a Friday evening so it wouldn't get delivered until Monday morning, on another weekday evening so it wouldn't get delivered until the next morning, on a weekday morning so it would get delivered later that day, etc.).

Should I be worried that a lot of my items are still being 'processed'? Some of my stuff has already been approved/returned but it just seems kinda odd :/

Nope, just be patient. You should only start worrying if they're still "Processing" closer to 25 days after you created the trade-ins.

This was posted earlier.

Just to share, I've been trading in to Amazon since forever and just today got my first rejection. It was a stupid Gamefly PS3 disc with chipped edges (no scratches). I thought PS3 discs would hold up better than Xbox ones, but I guess PS3 renters like to play with their discs. No more Gamefly purchases from me.
