No, they do not need one.  Yes, they were sold retail without a charger.  I had several 3ds xl's accepted under the renewed listings - none of them included a charger.

Short answer, yes. I have sent in a few GameCubes in under the renewed listing with no issue. Make sure you send everything in that came with the system

 

My advice would be to pretty much never send in anything with the box, unless it is listed as a boxed set or collector's edition. Items which would list "collector's box" or something like that in the description. 

 

thanks, just got my Wii U approved...can't believe i got $128 for my Wii U that's been sitting in a box for almost 3 years lol

So think I can just open the door to the UPS store and chuck the box at them? They pretty much know me by now.  :wave:

Sigh,I forgot to print out my shipping label and when I click the link in my email it says, "The shipping label for your trade-in order has expired"

Is there another way to access the shipping label?

I looked at the FAQ on the OP and the example, i can't get the full link from the link there.

This is the example:

https://www.amazon.c...e=UTF8&orderID=TRN-1234567-1234567

I need the full URL string in the orange part but i cannot get it for some reason... any ideas?


Thank you.

create a new trade in then replace the TRN in the url with the one you want the label for.

The link to the shipping label in your original trade-in e-mail should still go directly to the shipping label.

Did you try wakkoviper  suggestion? Paste the old TRN number to the end of a new trade in. I just tried it and it worked for me. As long as they don't email you telling that it is expired it should still work.

 

Sent in all my trades even ones that still had 4 weeks left. I'm not chancing anything during these uncertain times. I also ran into what somebody posted before about a trade in not processing for weeks. Game was received on the 5th and it still processing, even though all my games from that date were processed in 3 days. Service rep said it was because of the situation going on now but they probably lost it.

Locked in a trade tonight and noticed
"Send by May 29, 2020"

So we're getting extended trade-in windows along with extended returns on amz.

That's great, plenty of time to get a game, lock it in while the value is good and then have almost 2 months to play the game before having to send it in.

With 2 month lead times, may as well just lock in anything you see over $20 if you're really quarantine bored.

Looks like they're giving plenty of additional time to ship games on new transactions. I have until June to ship.

Yep, and they are still working and fairly briskly (had a few orders completed a day after it arrived)

My Mortal Kombat 11 was rejected hours after it was received, lol. Apparently I had chosen the euro listing instead of the US one...

It seems like Amazon removed the trade in option for a lot of older games. I was watching various Wii, Wii U, Gamecube, PS2, Xbox and DS game values and none of them can be traded in now. Even some newer current gen games I was watching the values of also can't be traded in anymore. I know they frequently remove games that a lot of people lock in at once but these were mostly older lower value games.

yeah they have closed off a lot of games the last few waves. i have about 70 trades locked in since they extended the trade in window. even games like madden and nba 2k20 have lost their trade in options.

You mean the listing disappeared or they are just not taking any  trades at the moment? I still see most of the normal Wii trade listings in search, just not taking any trades in at the moment. But the same applies to all the current game games as well, so might just be an inventory / staffing / corona phase, who knows.

Yea, I locked in a few trades at decent TIVs, problem is finding the games before mid-June and hoping for B2G1.5!  :razz:

I don't know what to do with my time now. I would go down my list and check for higher TIV a couple times a day but now 90% are inactive.

My MK11 NS bought from gamestop a few weeks ago and sent to amazon was rejected as an "does not match". Item was unwrapped and was in like new mint condition. 

 

Possibly Amazon have stop taking in trade in for the moment? Good thing i locked in 2 separate trade in for MK11 NS. WIll send in again once they accept trade-ins.

I had that problem with Spintires NS and had to go through chat about 3-4 times, plus resent twice, still got rejected on both.  Amazon ended up giving me the TIV credits but it was a pain.  The SKUs and cover pics matched so I still don't know why they got rejected twice.  Keeping my fingers crossed as I sent pairs of all 3 versions of MK11 (separately) last week.

Probably.

I have like 14 games in transit, so if they all get rejected I'll be pissed as hell. Mainly cuz last time I had something rejected, the tiv never went back up (and most these games are shovel ware).
