Normally I wouldn't do shenanigans such as these, but since this thread is related to Amazon spacebucks...

Go head over to referral central and check out http://www.cheapassg...d.php?t=312268' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>this thread about clover invites. $5 in amazon funny money for joining via invite link and seems harmless enough (but obviously make sure you're comfortable with it before jumping in). I wouldn't be offended if some kind soul tracked down my referral link in that thread and used it, but I'm not going to pimp it.

Hopefully this'll help some folks out and not derail the thread too badly.

Did anyone with the PS3 holiday bundle attempt to trade in Ratchet All 4 One and LBP2?

Ratchet is getting a very decent trade-in value. I am aware that it has a not for resale UPC but I think I read on Slickdeals where some people had success.


Amazon rejected my Ratchet All 4 One from the holiday bundle as it had a NFR barcode.

I sent a Flingsmash in with the outer box under acceptable (or whatever it is for missing accessories, etc). The outer box has a regular UPC. Don't know if it'll be accepted or not.

Oh man, UPS took forever delivering my Tropico 4 and APS sent it back as Expired/ Canceled. The $24 credit would have been nice for books.


How long was it between when you locked it in and when it was delivered? We need to nail down the exact expiration period. I'm thinking it is something like 3 weeks.

My first few Best Buy used games with different barcode stickers were accepted - two RB3 :360:, one that was a not for resale copy, one was some weird international version or something. I probably got lucky, but I also have a Monster Jam :360: and a pair of Thrillvilles in the same situation. Will report back.

Had several other Best Buy used barcode games accepted no problems today. They were all in decent shape, just the wrong barcode. So maybe they're finally getting a bit more flexible.

I was going to say, I've never heard of them accepting different bar codes or "Not for resale" games before. I mean, it was close to 100% rejection on those prior to now. So this must be a new thing.

I just had 2x rage at $30 received and accepted today, even though they arrived way late. Someone had to be in a happy mood, or just cut me some slack seeing as how the postal service took an extra 11 days to deliver my package. It was day 33, I wonder if the fact that I paid for my own postage had anything to do with it. I had two separate trade-ins arrive via UPS on day 25 and 27 this month that were both rejected as expired.
Also, another thing Ive noticed is when you send items in self-paid they process them right away, not the 2-3 days after like when pre-paid.

I was surprised to see 2 games I sent in generic black DVD cases with scratches on the discs revised to good instead of acceptable (I chose acceptable as the condition). It doesn't make sense how that is considered good yet mint games people have sent it as good get rejected.

Just had a new dvd and dvd set rejected for incorrect condition (both were listed as non-original wrapping). Can't wait to see what I get in return for new items I never opened.

Also i traded in a Duke Nukem that had the $30 value, it was a completely different EAN but they still accepted it.


EDIT: http://www.amazon.co...8&condition=new

Has anyone tried buying this from one of the 4 sellers who have it for around $40?

I locked in the TIV when it was inflated and suddenly it won't let me buy from any of the four different sellers.

It doesn't work on either of our accounts. I only locked in the trade on one account.

contacted amazon CS just said i was trying to buy it from one of the four different sellers and it wouldn't let me purchase through any of them.

Was told it was technical problem that should be fixed within a couple of hours.

Sent in a couple games (MW3, Bioshock, Saw) and the Ben Hur blu set a few days ago. They arrived on the 28th, but I haven't had them accepted yet. Hurry up, Amazon!

Here's another one to keep you folks busy.

i-CON by ASD Wii Racing Wheel - 70.00

Only evidence I've found of it being purchasable was at Wal-mart for $15 online and at Futureshop for $7, both (obviously) out of stock. Maybe in store?

One more accessory hunt:

Goofy Wii Tennis Racket with calorie counter - 20.00

Overstock.com seems to be selling them for around $11, but whatever.

Still "pending verification" on my one item I sent in that they received on Dec 16. This is absurd now. I'm giving it one more day before I email them...again...

it will be downgraded to acceptable or returned if you selected to have it returned instead of downgrading.

If an item submitted as "Good" has either the manual or the case but not both, will it necessarily be downgraded to "Acceptable"?

That's exactly what he said, so to reiterate. If you don't have "All original elements in slightly used" condition it will be downgraded if you chose to have it downgraded. If not they'll return it to you.
