My copy got returned as wrong item. It was in my first batch of rejections.


Spoiler


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.

i had never experienced something like this before, i have traded many times to amazon. i am getting really scared, especially the other package i send with it 1 week ago, was already verified/ credited for on 10/2/2012.

Same, I mentioned this earlier as well. Talked to customer service and they told me it was processing. As long as others are affected, I'm not as worried.

To all of you, if this is like what happened with two of my trade-ins, you have nothing to worry about:

I dropped off three trade-ins for UPS to deliver and all three were received on the same day but only one was described as "Processing". For a week I was worried that I wouldn't get credit for the other two games because they were still "Not Yet Received", but about a day or so after the "Processing" trade-in went through, I received confirmation emails for the other two saying that they went through, as well. So they were there all along, but someone forgot to change the status from "Not Yet Received" to "Processing".

I'll say it again: Just be patient. Breathe in, breathe out, and relax. Only panic if nothing changes between now and 25 days after you created the trade-in(s). :)

No prob. ;)

I just used a spreadsheet to total the Amazon credit I've gotten these last few weeks, and...I think I'm having trouble breathing:

$912.00
:hot::hot::hot::hot::hot:

*hyperventilates*

Note that in terms of profit, I have to factor in the money I spent acquiring some of the games I traded in, about $150, which still leaves ~$760! \\:D/
...And I'm still waiting on another ~$140 before I'm all done. :shock:

Yeah, I think after all the dust settles lots of folks will want to strut their crazy totals. After we've gotten it out of our systems it'll be new thread time. This has definitely been the nuttiest run I've ever seen with amazon since the promo/no 2x limit days. I miss the promos, they were fun.

My last package of doom 64 and super mario land was accepted for $42.

I also got a $10 amazon promo based on using my own shipping carrier on a game that was rejected.

I should of locked in a few more I had. Could have had about another $100 in credit but I'm happy with what I got out of it.

My doom64 was missing a huge chunk of the back label. It was a double so i purposely sent in the copy in worse condition only to fear rejections after. I can't beleive they accepted that game but rejected goldeneye 007 for marked for resale because it had a property of blockbuster label.

Yeah for $30 you need the box. Loose cart is $21 TIV.

That's just a general consenus thing though apparently people have got rejections from all sorts of things. A lot of it is amazon doing anything they can not to honor such a high TIV.

I had put some separate trade-ins in the same box (6 into 3 boxes, so 2 each), and I was worried they were somehow lost because of that (knew there was a risk), but they've just been received and entered processing (except for Donkey/Diddy Kong Racing), but I'm very relieved I didn't miss out on $30 for my Metal Gear Solid 1's (I guess I shouldn't speak so soon).

Good, I was hoping they didn't get Columbus Day off.

Everything I have left is in processing. Hoping for a profitable holiday!

Got my last package of 4 GC games processed for $113. Took a few days longer than the other ones (and shipped after prices went down) so was a little worried, but all is well.
