You have up until a month for Amazon to receive the item to receive the credit. Regardless, locking in doesn't hurt you, you don't have to mail in trades just because you lock them in.

Oh. Are there any penalties for sending it in late? I wanted to wait because it was going to take a week to get delivered. I wanted to have enough time to get them to the ups drop location. The trade in option came back up so I got lucky this time.  :D/

Nope, no penalties for sending in late--I've sent in things 14 days after locking them in and they were accepted without issue. Just don't wait too long.

When did Amazon start selling Gamestop gift cards again? Or have they always done it and I'm going crazy?

Finally decided to join CAG.  Traded in prior to the new rules and before they were picky on what they took in for games even with cases, manuals and all.  But since there is no rating condition system now that I see how has everyones trades been for acceptance with disc only or cartridge only?  I have 2 DS games and 4 Xbox 360 games want to turn in and don't have cases for these things and rather not deal with the wait for return on denial.

I'm just sending the disc, I don't play mine anyways, so if it goes through cool, if not whatever. Debating on picking up a second copy from GameStop but rejection would hurt at that point so idk

Sent my disc only copy and got it rejected.

 

Just got some credit from trading in 3 X1 kinects, though, so I spent it on the Destiny Collection for PS4. Gonna take the code, redeem it, then trade it back in for my locked in value of $18. $20 for all the DLC ain't bad.

So nice of them to accept two copies of Destiny the Collection when I only sent 1. I did, however send the collection cover art that I got from gamestop's promo box

Not gaming-related, but I just had a textbook rejected for "spine damage". Apparently it was completely detached from the pages. This was a brand new book that i didn't so much as open.

 

I'm fighting for that $120.

That might be worth taking a photo or a video of the book/whatever valuable item right before you put it into the package, just for occasions like this.

it seems like accessories go through quite a bit faster. I sent 4 packages at the same time, an accessory, a collector's edition and 2 regular games, the collector's edition and accessory were graded the day after delivery, 1 of the games processed today (day 2) and the last game is still in process. although I will say it might be a slow time for them right now because everything i send is going through at lot faster than it used to.

I had a grader reject a textbook trade, due to the back cover having a huge gash down the back cover. Thing is, it was the grader who cut it with their box knife. Called Amazon, got my credit no problem.

No. They'll only give you credit for one but it's going to count towards your 2 games per three month period limit.

If you do a trade-in for two games and only have one sent in, the other one will eventually expire unless you send it in.   If it expires, it doesn't count towards your 2-game limit, only ones that are paid out. 

 

My personal preference is to only lock in single games on a trade-in, except in rare cases.

This was literally the only time I haven't done that. Figures, right?

Hopefully (?) that's the case here. I've already called and politely told them that if I don't receive a pristine book back then I would be calling again.

Is Amazon still anal about manual slips being included in trade-ins? I have something here to get rid of but it doesn't have the slip. The last time I tried sending them something that didn't even come with one they rejected it for not including the slip. It's only worth 3 bucks to them but if they're just going to reject it because it doesn't have a slip that contains the controls and nothing else then I'll just save my time since it takes them like 3 years to return anything they reject and usually it looks like it's been through war when it gets back to you.

Not anymore since there are no longer good and acceptable values and just working condition.

#18384 ritchardf  

Posted 23 April 2017 - 02:16 AM

so is it 30 days from the time they get the trade in that has become acceptable to contact when a rejected item hasnt been returned?

Is there a site that has a collection of game manual slips? It would be pretty obvious it isn't the real one off regular basic printer paper lol. Might just chance it anyway if they don't, Never understood why they fussed about it in the first place as they never used to care then they did and now they don't gain I guess.

I believe the terms and conditions now say they have 14 days from rejection to return your item to you.  But yeah, CSR in the past had told us 30 days and some of us were using that as a baseline

Should I ignore an email that says that I need to send my item by 4/24/2017 otherwise they charge my credit card? I already received the amazon gift card for it. I plan to send it on 4/26/2017. I don't want to get charged because I'm low on cash.
