I would try my luck but the only places that sell it offer a 14 day return policy from the date I get it so I'm sure that if it was a rejected, I'd have it back later than the 14 days and thus not be able to return it.


Where are they selling the set? I wanted to get all the dragon box sets anyway.

iv sent high value tiv items before. best case is you get your credit. worst case is they say wrong item and send it back. they had the saints row double pack for like 60 tiv when you could buy it new for 30, i sent 2 and they said wrong item and luckily i was able to break even at least.

Thanks i'll definitely try my luck. Also are there two trade in centers? What is NORAM? A 3rd party merchant? So Amazon has trade ins for both themselves and NORAM? What is the difference between the two? I am sending the dragon box to NH so is that Amazon or NORAM? Is there a better chance of the item being accepted if it goes directly to Amazon?

IDK about having a better chance of acceptance but NorAm is in NH.

Wow you guys are too much. Send it and risk getting banned if it is worth that risk then by all means go ahead.

Also why all the secrecy and asking for mods to remove links? Seems strange for a thread like this one....hmmmm


yeah all the secrecy was pretty annoying so I decided to post the link instead of listen to these people talk like they're so special for knowing.

It was pretty pointless.


Don't mean to hijack the thread and hopefully you check this thread again but my address is in the PM I sent you earlier. I tried to send it again but your inbox is full.

And let's please leave it at that, no need beating a dead horse. Fact of the matter is when a wacky flip is posted in this thread the tiv generally tanks in anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes, so people are understandably a bit guarded about it nowadays. However, people can and should share whatever they please because sometimes it does help out folks and those wacky tiv things are just a game of roulette anyways.

Additionally, I would've never found out about that Nude on the Moon movie if he hadn't posted links. That movie looks fantastic.

Thanks--I locked in a trade for 2 copies that I can hopefully find at one of the Gamestops near me with it in stock. $34 GS credit -> $60 Amazon credit isn't bad. :D

I would have done 3 copies, but I won't be able to get to a GS before the B2G1 deal ends. :(

There is also the slight obstacle: amazon only takes 2 copies of a game per system.

Is it okay to send a brand new game to Amazon or should I open it first?

By all means, send it sealed. Most of the things I send in are new/sealed. I always hope that a cag is able to get it from warehouse deals down the line with dlc intact.

How about we just start writing nice little notes on every trade in?




"Hope you accept my trade and have a great day"

P.S. "You look wonderful today"

i think for a while we had a thing going where we would send pictures of cats and dogs whenever we sent high value items in.

quickie gamestop -> amazon flip if you're looking to move some credit around.

Fast and the Furious :psp: 14.99 used -> tiv currently 21.00 at amazon. Use your pal b2g1 free currently running at gamestop to get a little something for yourself.

as always the risks of getting a generic case and/or no manual exist when ordering from gamestop.com, so source local if you're able (or at least check local pre-owned stock for possible exchange locations)

p.s. I've totally given up on :ds: flips from gamestop to amazon. Most (all?) of my local Gamestops throw away the ds cases/manuals when they get trade-ins unless it's a very popular game.

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.

I stopped getting rejected ever since i used these tips. Another one is to send a cash "tip" worth 10% of the TIV mistake you are hoping to get. Works everytime. :applause:

Thanks for posting that--I locked in a single-copy trade. I've got quite the GS search adventure planned later this week that will hopefully end with me converting $60 GS credit to $111 Amazon credit:

-My Hero: Firefighter (:ds:): $30
-Walk It Out! (:wii:) x2: $60
-Fast and the Furious (:psp:): $21

I've also still got to send in Skyrim (:ps3:) and Dead Island (:360:) for $33.75 and ~$24, respectively, so if all goes well, I'll end up $168 richer at Amazon, give or take a few dollars. :applause:

For those of you that have gotten your trade in rejected, how long does it usually take to get your game back?

All mine from last week were accepted, including one i wasn't sure that would go through.

Anyone else still have things in Verifying that have already been paid? I have one from Dec 6th still sitting there.
