The B2G1 coupons that were printing on receipts for the last couple weeks  ?

 

Yeah, they work online. Used 3 yesterday.

Typed out the whole code including the dash.

 

If you have other promo codes loaded in your cart you might try taking them out first.

Just the ipod, charger cable and headphones.  I was a bit nervous about that boomerang but grateful it paid off.

:ps3: The Bigs 2 pre-owned went up from $6.99 to $9.99 at GS overnight. I'm telling you, we all buy a bunch of these games for flips and they want to capitalize. Don't try to convince me it's because of the increase in trade values. I don't want to hear it. Lol.

It happened like last week too, but I forgot what game we were talking about. I think it was a DS game.

:360: Cabela's Top Shot Elite Firearm Controller TIV: (LN) $31.62 (G) $29.87 (A) $22.84

 

^ Seen these controllers at GS for $9.99 but they are random finds and at best garner an acceptable value since they are without the box. Worth it for someone if they have one around them.

Good thing I already bought 3 of them. Gamestop is getting slimier and slimier, raising the price of almost everything.

Haha. Wow, glad I picked up everything yesterday. Cost me $18 for 2 Sacred 2 360 and The Bigs 2. Would have cost $23.28 today for all three lol.

I traded in a DualShock 4 that was immaculate and in all of its original packaging.

 

It was graded as Acceptable and I was only paid $28 for it, instead of the $38 for Like New that I had been quoted.

 

The revised condition said "Original packaging missing".

 

Do I have any recourse here? I don't understand how they could have graded it as Good, let alone Acceptable.

What did you select when you submitted the trade-in? Return it or keep it for the lower condition rating?

 

Either way you can complain to Amazon CS and they'll probably make up the difference.

I had selected "keep it for lower condition" but I didn't think there was any way it would get downgraded.

 

I've just sent an email to CS complaining that it was downgraded due to lack of packaging when I clearly sent it back in its original packaging, hopefully they'll credit me the $10 back.

Not really much recourse in your situation, that's the problem with submitting a trade-in with "do not return" as the option, you might get an inept grader. They will probably sell it back thru AWD as "Like New" though lol

They always find a way to downgrade.  I almost never select that option unless I'm comfortable getting the Acceptable value.  They downgrade and damage items all the time for no reason.

 

Good luck with CS.

That's probably how some of us are pleasantly buying acceptable from AWD and getting like new...I ordered 3 acceptable god of war ultimates durING the glitch hoping to piece a complete one together and all 3 came complete in at least good condition with missing item stickers next to the AWD sticker.

I sent Dynasty Warriors Gundam weeks ago when it had a decent value because I hadn't played it despite having it for months. It was rejected because it was "Acceptable" and I thought it was because the art was a little wavy, but they took the manual and sent it back as "Missing Manual". Are the manuals rare or something? I want mine back.

Damn, you just got jacked by the grader. You just helped him complete his copy of Dynasty Warriors Gundam.

I think I'll call this time. My Bandfuse from WHD that was Very Good also got downgraded to Acceptable because of missing packaging. It was complete.

I didn't get anywhere with an email to Amazon so I followed up with a chat and the CS rep there credited me the $10.78 to my account which was the difference between LN and A grading on the DualShock 4.

 

Annoying that I had to spend time emailing and chatting, but I'm happy that in the end I got the $ that I expected.

Amazon has the best CS so it's not that bad.

 

Amazon has been better to me than Newegg , TD , Walmart , etc. all combined together.

Are you guys sending in the gamesticks? They have a sticker barcode, if I remember correctly defiance CE also had a sticker barcode and most of them got rejected.
