My 2x Tomb Raider will be here tomorrow from GS. Ordered Saturday night, will arrive via UPS Ground (free value shipping) tomorrow... in plenty of time to get them out to Amazon for $75 each. Thank you to whomever posted about these, my PS4 preorder will hopefully be that much cheaper upon trade-in.

Anyone have any luck with Sing It: Family Hits yet?  I picked one up Friday to send in, but the fact that it's saying Microphone Required on the front makes me think it's going to be a wrong upc rejection even at acceptable.

I agree with everything about the stickers. Is it really that hard for you to take them off. I also feel like it enhances the odds of getting "good".

I'm just gonna pull the artwork out. You don't need artwork to get an Acceptable grade. I'm not gonna risk trying to get a Good rating on these music game bundles. I submitted them as Acceptable and will send disc only. I think trying to get a Good rating on something like these will just draw more attention to them.

 

As far as stickers go. I always take mine off. Gamestop stickers are generally easy to peel off even without Goo Gone. You just have to be careful and peel slowly.

My Rock Revolution got denied because of "Wrong item." This means I can complain to Amazon and get moneys right?

These Amazon trade ins seem like a waste of time. 90% of my games they won't even give me $1 for

It's up to you, but I'd personally consider it an abuse of amazon's generosity. The goal here isn't to rip amazon off - they actually run a decent program. Everyone is trying to pass off a disc copy as a bundle without accessories. If you get lucky congrats, if you don't just accept the loss as part of the gamble.

Looks like I shouldn't have any hopes of Amazon accepting my one Rock Revolution I sent in (game was complete with UPC cut out). It's processing so I guess it'll be rejected soon.

probably, but for every one person reading this thread that thinks/knows it's sarcasm there's 10 more that think 'hey I should complain!' I know of at least two times Amazon has complained about this thread regarding customer service abuse, so I don't chance it and take the chances to shut it down when I can.

^ This! I have seen him post before in other threads and he is definitely being sarcastic towards people who come here and complain and then turn to Amazon and do the same to get credit knowing full well, if they have been following this thread and the previous iterations then they should know, that any game can be turned down for any reason (hello, Defiance anyone).

Well, my Rock Revolution complete with UPC cut out was rejected as well for "wrong UPC".  Resubmitted at the $15.xx acceptable TIV and will send in a generic case and see what happens.

 

Anybody had success with the World Tour disc only as acceptable?  I found several complete copies at my GS today with the 3 for $10 deal but didnt pick any up yet in case its a waste of time.  I pass by this GS everyday so if people are having luck I'll pick up a couple copies tomorrow.

We've been sending RR with the bar code cut out or in a blank case as the RR Drum Bundle in acceptable condition.  I've had 2 accepted so far, but it's not looking good for the other 2 I sent out for my gf based on recent results.

So I sent a trade offer for 2 copies for $31 something then I checked local gamestops and found that they only have one in stock.

Will amazon get pissy that the packing slip says 2 copies but I only sent one

From the OP:


I locked in X copies of a game but I now only have Y available to send. Can I just send in Y without being penalized? (updated 3/9/11)

Yes, you can always just send in a portion of your trade-in order and they'll just credit you for whatever they receive. However, the quantities you submitted for will stay locked in that instance (I think) so if you, for example, submitted for 2 copies and only sent 1, you may not be able to trade any more copies of that game for 3 months (see previous question).
