Does anyone use the Amazon trade in history tracker in the Op? I downloaded google chrome and signed in but when I look at a game in the trade in section I don't see anything that leads me to the tracker. Help?

Alamaur or whatever dropped to $19 on PS3 and still holding at $16.20 360

roughly 19 days if you locked in yesterday to get the game from bestbuy and send them off.

To those who bought Fifa Street on the DOTD for amazon, the trade in value is up $26. Nice deal for rent and return.

Another 'if you picked up', if you snagged SSX :360: w/ bby coupon, it's trading for $20.25 now.

Nice find. Guess I won't get around to playing SSX.

Thanks for the heads up. It's at $16 now.

Probably last chance to lock Kingdoms of Amalur before the coupon frenzy starts tomorrow, likely tanking the value to hell and back. Still at 16 :360:/19 :ps3:. Also, Soul Calibur V finally rebounded on 360 back to ~$15 if you're looking to ditch your cheap bby copy.

One more, umvc3 :vita: is up to 24.30. I'm trading mine towards a psn card so I can (eventually) get it digital as it seems like I'd prefer just being able to launch it whenever without doing the card swap mambo.

Go to Amazon's trade-in site, and type the UPC into the search bar. If a game shows up, then you're good. If it doesn't show up, then it's hit-or-miss.

Doesn't matter - send it in new to ease any doubt on the condition requirements.

Those games, like most EA games these days don't come with a manual so I'm pretty sure you are ok. Good job getting Fifa 13 before release:)

Ditto. On another note, sent in Tom Clancy's future soldier walmart version. Hopefully, it will be accepted.

You run a 50/50 chance of being rejected if the UPC is different from the stock copy.

How do you know the odds? Do you work at the trade in facility? I imagine you are just making up that fact.

oh well. i just didnt want to send off and get rejected. i should have asked cag tho, cuz the moment i did that a bunch told me it was just another manual-less ea game. same with the 360 amalur i just sent off new. strange they give the ps3 manuals, even if tiny and black n white, but not 360. peace

My :360: FIFA 12 Good got rejected for not having the manual, so you never know. Whatever, I can actually get more now that it went off sale at Gamestop.

Wonder if you send in a game that contains no manual sealed if they would reject it.

Hmm - I didn't notice that. I don't think it will make much difference for me.

But, man, this reuse of tracking numbers is a little strange. Check this out:

--------, United States 07/18/2012 1:49 A.M. Departure Scan
--------, United States 07/17/2012 11:00 P.M. Departure Scan
07/17/2012 5:34 P.M. The shipment has been dropped off and is now at The UPS Store®.
Nashua, NH, United States 08/09/2011 9:23 A.M. Delivered
United States 07/09/2012 2:58 A.M. Order Processed: Ready for UPS


So, yeah, apparently, my package went back in time and got delivered at the old NorAm site in New Hampshire last August!

Spiderman: Web of Shadows :360: up to almost $15 - highest it's been by a longshot since BL started tracking.

I hate to let it go, but I haven't gone back to it in well over a year (or two?) so maybe it's time.

In case anyone's trading in an XBox 360 system with GameStop's 100% promo and/or just happens to have one of these lying around. Seems like solid trade value. Looks like it's a fat drive but didn't say in the description or reviews...

Looking to trade in some old guides that'll never trade but for some reason are worth a little on trade in. Got two questions though:

1. Should I send them in sealed or remove the packaging?

2. Its a limit of two of the same item per 6 months, right? I have many of one kind of guide and I just want to be sure.

Sealed is fine, 2 x every 6 months I believe is still the norm, but I haven't checked in a while.
