Hmmm...I guess because the listing is in French with the European ratings system that they are saying my disk is the NA version and as such not applicable. 

I just got lucky then. I'll just send it to the one with NA boxart then even tho it's the lower value. I'm still waiting on the status of my trade in of Pokemon Crystal cartridges.

Any flips for the GameStop 4 for 20 sale? Wasn't really seeing anything.

Yea, too many to list.. But here's the top money maker. Halo 2, skylander, haze, final destiny. They tend to sell out quickly so you'll have to get to your GameStop 1st thing tmr morning.

So guessing no decent flips. Oh well, the sell isn't terrible anyways.

Both my trade ins of Pokemon Crystal got rejected at an "inflated TIV" of $26.33. The reason for the rejection is "default".

I just contacted customer service and the reason the Pokemon Crystal cartridges were rejected was because they didn't work.  [-(

Super mario galaxy selects wii and animal crossing amiibo festival wii u are the only profitable ones, about 5.50, only good for converting GS credits and if you are only interested in keeping 1 or 2 games from the GS sale. Gears of War UE is the only other one above $2, at about $3.50, good if you just want rare replay like myself.

 

 

Do I need the official game cases if the trade in only asks if 1) all discs are included, 2) game plays, and 3) how many scratches?

Where are you going to get the official game cases from?

 

To answer your question: No. And in most cases, you can't even find the game cases anymore, unless it is a newer game (either that, or you are trading in your own collection).

 

If you package it well, you are fine trading in cart/disc only.

My bad, I was referring to the x360 and x1 games I received from the GS 4 for $20 sale. Thanks for the info

This program can eat my whole ass. Took the time to send some retro games in all in working condition and they rejected them. Sent them back unpacked in a zip-lock bag with a tag on them that just said "bad listing". I really don't know why they have standards for trade in item if its a lottery of whether you get credited or not. Customer service is abysmal as well and dont really have a valid explanation of whats going on with their third party service. Whats the point just Fuck 'n can it. I used to trade in with them a few years ago and it was fine, but this was a total crap shoot.

Ive had 2 games returned cracked and a bunch of off listings rejected. However i kept recreating the trade in and at some point they always got accepted. Ive had the same game under the same listing traded in. One was under my wife's account the other was under mine. Mine were accepted and for whatever reason the opposite for her. Even with the broken disc returns and the constant rejections amazon trades have worked out in my favor. Everything has been flips from gs and atm I have a good amount of credit. Hopefully the flips will continue and pay for the fall release games.

Why would you trade those in...there's no way amazon could've given anything close to their secondhand value

It was close to resell value for x2 as well as x3 I figured the 10%-15% cut would save me the trouble of dealing with the eBay and how fishy selling online can be. If I recall correctly it was 170 for x3 and 90 for x2.

Got the infamous "incorrect item received" for the 2 copies (disc only) of Mario Party 7 I sent in. What were they expecting...a cartridge?  :wall:

Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis is currently trading in for $6.02

 

Most copies have "Not for resale" right on the label so I don't know if that will cause any issues but I am going to give it a shot

NFR copies aren't allowed, so don't be shocked if they're rejected.  You might have someone miss that and let it go through.
