my trade in for Catherine got rejected cause I didn't have the cd. How long will it take to return and can I send it again but accept its lower value?


When you say the cd are you talking about the game disc? I sent in two from the last B2G1 from gamestop but neither copy had anything special about them. Just game and manual.

Just a heads up for anyone looking to trade in Assassin's Creed Revelations :360: - the _only_ version currently with a tiv is listed as "Standard with TriOviz 3d Glasses". The "Standard" version (upc 008888526841) that I think everyone on the planet has is not available for trade-in presently. I'll send mine in anyways, but ymmv for sure if they end up taking it.

For what it's worth, Amazon sent me the one (Standard w/ TriOviz 3d glasses) during BF, so I think that's the one they were selling until they ran out. Not sure if they're going to switch the TIV over to the new one they're selling now, though.

I have a question.
If I submit a trade in for the limit which is 2 but decide to just send none and let the deadline pass. Does that still counts as my limit and I would need to wait 3 months to trade them in?

sorry if im unclear

you'll have to manually cancel it later on even if it expired to trade it in the future.

If and when we can start trading in the normal version:
Can I trade in my Walmart labeled copy of Asscreed Revelations ps3 to Amazon?
There is a little Warmart box on the cover (b/c it was a special Walmart edition that came w/ the Brutus armor dlc code).
The upc code on my Walmart edition is: 008888366843

I had five packages delivered between Wed/Thurs and so far they've done two packages (Fri, Sat) so likely just taking their time. Might depend how large each package is too, as mine were just one game.

If the actual UPC is different from the standard version everyone else has, you're out of luck from my experience.

I know you can cancel a trade in but is this frowned upon by amazon? Do they have to pay ups anyway when I do cancel? I ask because I want to lock in the awesome tiv for AC:R but not sure I'll be done with the game in a week.


I do this often as I will see trade in values change sometimes for the better. Never heard a word.

Amazon also just rejected my tradein for Catherine for missing artworks. I've send in the manual along with CD, but I guess Catherine come with some artworks.

Thats going to suck for me if it gets rejected. I tried talking to an amazon rep last night because when you view the page it shows them with a second disc and a little artwork thing. Apparently those were supposed to be preorder bonuses but the game never really sold out so all copies are still coming with them.

Damn that would suck I sent them a 360 & PS3 copy last week, I know a lot of places don't sell it with the preorder bonus anymore does amazon still?

Theres some posts on Catherine's page from back in Oct and Nov with people stating they still got them with their new copies from amazon. If mine get sent back I'm not sure entirely sure what the hell I'm going to do with them.

Your Rage should get accepted. The bonus DLC sheets don't count. I always take them out of the case before sending them (in case I or a friend needs a code in the future).

Looks like my Catherine's got rejected for the lack of artwork and sound disc as well. That's kinda ridiculous.

Does anyone have any experience trading in Borderlands GOTY (XB360) with the token codes (as opposed to the DLC on a 2nd disk)? The UPC points to the only Borderlands GOTY that they have (which is the one with the 2nd disk). If I submit it, will it be rejected because there is no 2nd DLC disk?


To answer my own question... I submitted the Borderlands GOTY with DLC tokens (as opposed to 2nd disk) and it was rejected for "wrong edition" despite the fact that its UPC points to the GOTY edition with 2nd disk.

ATTENTION FOR ALL WHO GOT THEIR CATHERINE REJECTED


For those who Catherine was rejected for: talk to costumer service. I did and they promised to give me the difference once I resubmit the trade. I told them that the artbook/soundtrack were pre order only, so it does not count as a bundle and they agreed. Once I get them back I'm re sending them with option to downgrade then talking to customer service again since I know they will make the same mistake again. Should get the difference in promotional credit (My original trade in was for 32 a game).

Off topic, but where did you guys get Rage so cheap? I'm looking to purchase one to play.:)

Sorry in advance if you guys aren't flipping Rage, but simply trading it. :)

Open spoiler at your own risk.

They are almost all flipping it. At gamestop, they got it during the b2g1. Catherine was $30 I think and rage was pretty cheap.

Were you in hibernation during BF because Rage was 29.99 for the anarchy edition @ newegg and 29.99 in a lot of places.

The Rage I sent in was one I had pre-ordered and bought from Amazon to play. But, as pointed out above, it was also really cheap at Gamestop's B2G1 free sale. There is another B2G1 free sale this Thursday, I believe. Check the Gamestop thread.

I got it "Like New" from warehouse deals, beat it, and traded it in. Since they denied it claiming "Acceptable" I'm just going to process a return for being the wrong condition :roll:

Will they reject a game brand new and in shrink wrap? Better to open it?

Both the EAN and ASIN are different item numbers so they are different products. At one time there were three Duke Nukem DS games in the works, my guess is they created an item for each Critical Mass, Chain Reaction and whatever the third one was called, once the game finally came out two years later they either replaced the placeholder incorrectly or things changed to the point were they had to create a new item.

EDIT: How did you even find that? My searches result in squat.

You can type in the UPC when you search and the tiv associated with item will appear.

one of them is listed as sony psp. it might be a UPC that wasn't used, hence you can never trade it in.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
