Anyone know how to get the extra 20% off to kick in on an Amazon Warehouse purchase for Earth Week? Is there a code or something?


It's only on select items

Thanks.  That sucks.

As far as I can tell, it's not the entire Amazon Warehouse collection that qualifies for the 20% off for Earth Week, it's only select items. gospelman posted a link to most of them here: https://www.amazon.c...6011&pldnSite=1

Don't know if this link points to a different collections of items, but this is what I found:

https://www.amazon.c...d_i=10158976011

I just got off the chat with them.  Amazon had arranged for a pickup (3-5 business days), and some one must be present at home for the pickup.  I've never purchased anything from Amazon Warehouse before.  Seems like too much of a headache just to save a few bucks.  Thanks for the reply!

i dont know if they gave you a choice, but if you do the return yourself you can choose to just drop it off and return it free of charge. i just returned an item today and i didnt even have to print the label, amazon gave me a qr code for ups to scan and they printed it off right there.

Yeah any time I've done a non-pickup return they just email me a QR code, UPS scans it prints the label and sends it off for me and the refund shows up once it gets back to the warehouse and processed in

My "like new" soul Calibur vi deluxe arrived without the game disc or season pass dlc code and the metal case was broken. Definitely returning. Was trying to gamble to get the season pass for cheap, but looks unreliable now.

Mine arrived with a smushed corner, but was sealed. Otherwise looks great.

I bit on the PSVR bundle. I already have one but it's a gen 1, going to sell it and the camera off to pay towards the 2nd gen, the HDR passthrough and single cable is much more convenient.

I did the same. Came brand new. Just missing the outer packaging wrapper for $144.

No games for me, but got a mini PC that was described as "like new, package damaged". It was brand new with the plastic seal around it torn slightly, so basically got it for 50% off plus used some Amazon Points for grand total of $86.

This seems to be how the bulk of them arrived at retail, it was pretty hard to find one in a good shape or that didn’t have a spider-wrap constricting the hell out of it.

Grats to those who got basically new PSVR.

 

My PSVR Astrobot/Moss bundle came. Item was definitely previously used ... thankfully gently although the box is pretty jacked up.

Moss key had already been redeemed, but I was able to get Amazon CSR to send a physical Moss disk (I had to order, then she fully refunded the order).

My Darksiders III: Apocalypse Edition just arrived and it's a dinger. Looks like it was never opened, and the content were packaged well enough that the dings didn't do any damage to the contents. Very happy with this one. :)

Damn I didn't even think about this one! How much was it altogether?

The promo page still exists but the discount has not been applying to any of the items for a couple days now.  Probably dead.

Ordered a "Like New" White Xbox Elite controller. Received a funky used grey/green controller in an Elite box (including the clamshell case with no accessories) with bonus additional funk all over the clamshell. Was really hoping for a dinger...

That’s what I was afraid of. Ordered one for $85 after the promo and the box was opened and had a ton of stickers on it, figured it was going to be terrible, or some generic controller inside, ended up looking like it was never touched. Came complete with all the extra parts and controller case. Tested all the buttons and everything is perfect.

I’ve had some terrible luck with AWD, but this last week I scored an $85 Roomba that was brand new, never opened, $14 Shadow of the Tomb raidersteelbook Edition that was new and sealed, and the opened $85 elite controller that was opened but apparently brand new.

The GPD XD that I ordered from Amazon Warehouse showed up today.  It was described as being sold in "like new" condition, and the system itself appeared to be just that.  The reason that I know is that it wasn't charged when I took it out of the box.  It looks great including the screen and the charger, so I'm excited.  It apparently has to charge for 5 hours before I can use it, so I might report back if there's anything wrong with it.  

 

As usual, the box looks like it was chewed by a rabid dog, but when you shop Amazon Warehouse, aesthetics are the first thing to go out the window.  

 

It didn't qualify for the Earth Week sale, but since it's not something that I'll find in a retail store, there was only one, and it will play GameCube games on the go (don't ask how), I figured what the hell.

AWD does it again, I purchased a “Yellow Submarine” vinyl for $8.50 and they sent me some random vinyl. Was about to return it until I decided to look it up and apparently it’s a numbered special edition and going for $65-$90 on eBay.

This one time their incompetence worked out in my favor.

Got one of the Asus PG278QR Monitors with the Earth day code for $350 and it arrived with the Asus seal intact.

As a follow-up to my previous post, the GPD XD kicks ass.  I'm still not sure that it's legal that it already had Happy Chick, PPSSPP, and Retroarch pre-loaded on its factory firmware, but that's another discussion for another day.  However, I've been unable to get it to connect to my home wi-fi, yet I doubt that it's a factory defect.  Probably a good thing since it is a Chinese-made device, and I am scared to use my Google Play account on it without going over to a custom firmware first.  But I am happy with my purchase so far.  I just had to tell someone.  :D/

I’ve never even heard of that thing but it looks sick, and it sounds like you got an ideal one already loaded. How much did you snag that for? I’m going to have to keep an eye out.

Mine was a GPD XD Plus 2018 hardware version, and it was $189.66 before tax.  If I could have gone for the 2019 hardware version, I would have, but you rarely see anything by GPD used on Amazon Warehouse, so I snapped up the 2018 as soon as it fell below $200.

Nice score!  What was the one they sent?   

 

Vinyl toys (Funko etc) are one of the biggest crapshoots on AWD - I used to constantly find pure gold for dirt cheap, but that was years ago and doesn't happen nearly as much anymore.  And even if you do find something good, buying them from AWD means you'll be returning it most of the time for not being the correct item.   

 

If it's a variant of some sort (or convention/store exclusive), I'd say 9 times out of 10 it's going to be the regular one instead of the cool one that's listed.  If there are no variants or older/newer versions for the figure, you have a decent shot at getting the right one.   Regardless, the box is going to almost always be trashed, although sometimes the ones listed in worse condition are actually the better ones.  And if it's an awesome deal, I can live with a demolished box that's held together with tape (received more then 1 of those).

 

I"m not sure if the AWD employees who price and list are truly clueless and all the mislabeling is an accident, or if they're lazy and just price it according to the first thing they find that has a similar name, or if it's all done on purpose to try and get the most money without caring about how accurate it is.   I think it is probably a mix of all of that mixed with a good serving of return fraud from buyers keeping the figure and putting something else in the box to return.  But it's still worth it sometimes!

There's nothing wrong at all with the software, it's the ROMs that get into gray territory, and given that most of the stuff is older anyway nobody really cares anymore and most gamers want them out there if nothing else to preserve them. There's not telling how many old movies that are incredibly hard to find now because of rights and whatnot. Way I see it if these companies won't make it available for you to pay money on then there's not much other choice if you want to play older games. Especially rare ones.

I'm waiting for a part to arrive to complete an Amazon trade-in, but its shipment is late.  Anyone know how long I have to actually ship my trade-in before they'll cancel it or refuse to accept it?  I already printed the label before it disappears.

You have actually quite a while.  I've never had a problem sending in something 1 week late.  In a few cases I've gotten things through 2+ weeks out but I imagine that's YMMV.

 

We used to have an Amz Trade-in thread around here, I imagine it's buried since people rarely contribute to it these days.

I used to send things in a lot, but the amount of things they stopped taking, and the values both tanked simultaneously.
