FYI Batman: AC for ps3 just went up on TIV to $24.30 (after dropping from $15 to $6 and up now) if someone wants to lock in from best buy grabs. FFXIII-2 for PS3 is at $20 also.

Especially if you are really in NY. It should only take a couple days to get to them, which is no problem. Lately I've been sending things in from the West Coast a day or two late and that hasn't been a problem. Considering it takes 7-8 days for shipment from here, I don't think you'll have a problem 1 day late from NY.

What i do is just PDF the packing slip/label once it gets close to the end of the 7 days since you can't print the label after that point even though you can still send them and have them accepted.

latest I've ever submitted and accepted was 3 1/2 weeks from sending date expired. Had to resubmit for 25 instead of 33 for uncharted 3, got cancelled for a trade in late/early news year this year in mid transit and got it sent back to me. Paid amazon 29.99 on black firday for it.

I randomly saw that and locked it in. I couldn't get any more from BBY because they were out of magazines, but I have an alternate way to get some for a similar price :)

I usually print to pdf but didn't this time.

also I am in NY but one time it took over 10 days for the items to show up as delivered on the tracking (typically within 5). UPS (and USPS) is very inconsistent in NYC.

Trade in deal of the day: Final Fantasy xiii-2 ps3 $20

Just got it for $15 with the novella. The game is really good but since I just got Shank 2 and Shift 2 for free (ps+) and PGA 13 CE ($35 @ Target) I'm a bit swamped. I'll trade it now to make a $5 profit and then pick up the ce when it drops below $55.

I'm new to this but, damn, so if the TIV of a game gets raised from the time you traded it in, and your trade-in is in the "Processing..." stage, you would still get the lower, initial TIV? Can someone clarify? I'm not sure if I missed this.

Thanks

Yes, you get whatever value you locked in (whether higher or lower).

Little help, if you say create a trade with 3 games but decide you want to keep 1 but not cancel the trade because the TIV you locked in we're that good, can you send in the 2 games and they'll just accept those and null out the one you didn't?

yeah they'll take the 2 for sure and credit them the other will just show up as not received.

^^^ Exactly. I've done this multiple times. They'll take whatever you send in, credit you for the games received, and then the trade will stay in the processing stage for a few more days because of the missing games, but eventually they just close the trade.

No harm, no foul....

Surprised to see a trade in sent this past Monday to get delivered and in processing today. Usually takes eight days to make it from So Cal to New Hampshire. I'm guessing because it was just after Easter?

So just out of curiosity, since it's been changed to allow most games to be accepted at a lower tier, even if you don't have the case or instructions... How many people have still had games rejected at the lower tier? It's hard for me to shed my past fears, as I have a few DS games with no case (well, just a generic case) and I'm very reluctant to send them in.

if they get rejected they send it back to you.... not a big deal.

I'm trying to think of reasons why I SHOULDN'T pick the "like new" credit value if I'm just gonna pick "Don't return the game to me". I mean, they're gonna readjust your tier level anyways, so why not take the 1% or so chance they don't?

Sounds logical to me.

Well like I said, just out of curiosity. Although something I'm building credit towards is at a lower price ATM and not sure how long that'll last...so was just trying to get a feel for what they DON'T take anymore since then I'd just take it to BB.

I almost exclusively trade in pristine games (even sent in quite a few still new/sealed) but just recently sent in two My Horse and Me: Riding for Gold cart-only games for the DS when they were trading in at some obscene dollar amount. I locked in at the Good price but could only find cart-only games at the GameStops around me. Amazon/Noram accepted the games without an issue but downgraded them to Acceptable condition and gave me something like $27 each instead of the $34 each I would have gotten for complete games.

For what it's worth, it makes me much more comfortable trying to trade in disc-only or cart-only games in the future, although I still always do that only as a last resort...

I haven't even opened up my copy it yet, but I locked it in anyway.

Alundra (PS1) is up to $30 and SSX (PS3) is up to $32.70. I'm glad I didn't have a chance to send off my copy of SSX yet that I locked in for about $25.

Edit: Looks like at least someone traded in since the values plummeted...

Nice. Already locked in my Alan Wake LE for the same amount I paid for it through the Warehouse.

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.
