Hey guys. I was doing some Amazon trades and noticed a new trade-in promo. If you trade in $20 worth of video games, you'll get a $10 bonus to be used towards eligible new releases. here's the link.

 

http://www.amazon.co...node=8561202011

 

It's not a great deal, but I know I'll be getting Infamous Second Son Day 1, so this'll be good for me. Plus, if there's a price drop (unlikely) you'll save even more. You can get this deal until March 16. It doesn't have an expiration date for the promo code yet.

Hmm, have a trade in currently processing, wonder if that works or not.

Hopefully not. They should have corrected errors like that after the previous issues they had.

In my experience, previous trade-ins do not qualify. Only ones submitted after the promo goes into effect will qualify.

Nope, has to be on the trade when it's submitted.

I wouldn't count on it, it's been going on since the summer.

Amazon has become rather stingy about TIV. Doubt I have anything that would even reach $20.

Sucks that it doesn't go up i.e. $40 for $20 credit. Dark Souls 2 for $50 is fine by me.

it'll be fun to see if this actually only applies to the five titles listed in the promo (it does say 'add a qualifying game from the list below to your cart').  amazon is like the charlie brown of promos now.

I'm wondering if it can be applied to games you already pre-ordered.

It won't without contacting CS, since it's promotional credit, and then it's a crapshoot.

It's on all the promos, sometimes they reach the quota and stop issuing them.

i know, but i just don't feel like going through the hassle. i rather find a profit worthy trade in that will earn me  $30 total credit, by find something that is around the tiv of $20, and thus earning the $10 profit. their third party trade in services has been in the pita for me lately with the promotional credit.

 

Edit: on second thought, i rather just get my amazon credit from gs, since i have around $500 store credit there.

Does anyone know when this went into effect? I just submitted a trade-in last night and haven't even shipped it yet, so I'm not sure if I will qualify or not.

Check under "Your Trade-In Account" and look for "Eligible for 1 promotion" under that trade-in--if you see it, then it was active when you initiated the trade-in, but if not, then it started today.

I think I might actually do this.  I just finished SM3DW and just wasn't that into it.  Between the trade in value and the credit, I should be able to get Infamous for about $17.  Fair trade to me.

It'll show on your trade-in.  Right above the value and under the trade-in number on the left hand side, it should say "Eligible for 1 promotion".  If it doesn't, then it didn't qualify.

I'm in basically the same spot - with the promo, they'll give me $43 towards inFamous: SS for Castlevania: LoS2.  That's more than anyone else is giving for that POS.

My trade-in was accepted today, it says I got the promo, but when I add inFamous: SS to my cart & go to checkout it doesn't show the $10 discount.  Anyone else getting this?

Got the same thing here, gonna place the order and try to get ahold of support.

 

Edit: Currently 'On Hold' in a chat window lol Seems like we may have to wait 24-48 hours to get an email and then the promotion will apply. This sucks for anyone wanting to get Dark Souls 2 since it went out of stock. Might still work on the Collector's Edition which is in stock but is NOT release day delivery unless you were one of the first to preorder it. Namco is doing 2 runs of the CE and apparently the first run sold out back in early Nov.

 

Edit: They applied a $10 coupon to the order manually which actually put my order in the negative. They said this will go back on the account as a gift card.

 

Here is the transcript of the chat for any impatiently wondering how to go about this. http://pastebin.com/rFviMFUN

OK, thanks - I'll be patient for a couple of days since I still have plenty of time to preorder infamous.  If I don't see it pop up in a few days I'll contact them.
