Damn. Both my DS Trilogy copies got rejected. It's a shame. I was going to get a big chunk of amazon gift cards from them. I'll go with the safer options next time.

Not just you. Almost all video game items have been removed.  Time will tell if it's permanent or temporary.  But with recent closures to target and walmarts tradie-in programs, amazon could just be pulling the plug along with it's competition.

Rumors of the program's demise were greatly exaggerated.  (Many values are back up.)

Semi related to gamestop question.  I found some stuff to transfer to amazon but didn;t hit $35 for free shipping.  Can I get some extra stuff to hit $35 and then return the unneeded game without issue?

yes unless it's like a B2G1 promo.  I've done that a few times over the years.

If I trade in a PS3, Does it needs to match the Model Number or will it not matter? I have two 60Gb Models and Amazon offers more for the 20Gb Models. lol

Yeah. Always go for the higher value one unless there's a specific differentiator like collectors edition, etc. You'll notice there's a lot of items with multiple listings and highly different values.

Question, order a few game from game stop.  For those that don;t have original case, should I remove gamestop printed generic box art when i ship to amazon or it is fine to leave it?  Specially when it is 2 copy of a game , one have official art the other is generic.... remove both to be safe?

Artwork isn't required for Amazon trades anymore since they only need to be "Working", so you can remove just the generic art. You should never send the Gamestop generic artwork for obvious reasons.

When I get discs in yellow sleeves I grab some jewel cases and stick them in there. Jewel cases are pretty cheap as long as you buy a bunch at a time.

So if i get 2 copy of a game, one with official art the other is generic, just remove the generic and leave the official art in?

What are the odds of an Xbox one being approved if it is an old black console with either a new black controller OR an old white one?

I locked it in for 125 so better than the 90 or so from GameStop

YMMV. I've had a ps2 rejected for having the "wrong" dualshock 2 color

Whats up with all the items saying (renewed)? They almost always have a higher trade-in value than the regular item. Are they being accepted?
