There's a 50% off Disney Infinity play sets Target Cartwheel coupon that expires on Saturday, if anyone can put that into a gameplan for trade-ins.

As a side note, if you order one game, it'll be sent via media mail shipment, two+ games will be done as priority mail.

My other SD card was just processed as Like New, so I'll only partially blow up at Amazon CS. :razz: If anything, that might help my case.

Two identical items graded differently is a slam dunk for a CS communication.

Man, I posted this exact one in awd thread for around ~ $50 at first and then ~ $20 a few weeks back and no one bit and the price sprang up to ~ +$100. That would have been a sweet boomerang.



Too late now.

One thing to keep in mind is that MS and Sony will normally go back to manufacture date through the serial number to determine warranty for someone that doesn't have a new purchase receipt for it.


If you end up getting something from AWD that is a console and it fails outside the return period, as long as it shows manufacturer warranty is valid on it from the serial number, you're OK with getting it replaced.

Joint effort, DS2U for finding the TIV and me for finding the Sandisk store. Gotta give credit to where credit is due :)

He permanently gets my thanks, though I do need to remind him of it from time to time. ;)

Both SD Cards went through as (LN). Two more games processing. I might be at 0 trade-ins soon. Need to feed the beast!




Thanks again for finding them on Sandisk's website.


NorAm needs to hurry up and process my SD cards already--they were received a week ago, but there hasn't been any update since.

Same here. Not a peep out of them over those cards, so hopefully we'll see some more action on them today.   I don't see any of mine in the end part of processing per the shipping deadline trick, so I'll check back on them later in the day.

#12779167 Cowboy Bebop Complete Series (BD) - $29.99 @ Amazon.com

Posted by shrike4242 on 01 July 2015 - 02:59 PM



Amazon has the BluRay release for Cowboy Bebop for $29.99, which as cheap as I've seen it.   This isn't the LE, it's the regular release, so it's BD only, no DVD copies.


Must-buy at this price, without question.

#12779117 Amazon 20th anniversary sale week of July 12th

Posted by shrike4242 on 01 July 2015 - 02:29 PM

The first and last sentences of my post are in jest, but the rest is sincere.  I've received a few PMs about this. I guess I just considered our delivery person bad at his job, but CAG may have convinced me that someone should be notified of this guy's behavior.  Thanks for the deals and the help with my personal life, CAG.  You da best. 

You should go to your local post office, with the video in-hand, and speak with this guy's delivery supervisor to make a formal complaint.  That, and get another security camera for the side door.  Should be able to afford that with the money you've saved on CAG. ;)

#12779114 Secret Amazon Prime Deals on Console Games like Batman and Elder Scrolls

Posted by shrike4242 on 01 July 2015 - 02:27 PM

Amazon Prime can bite me.  Also, any true cheap-ass gamer wouldn't be paying for Amazon Prime in the first place.

Any true cheap-ass gamer also buys items other than games and Amazon has plenty of things to get that are 2-day shipping for free and more money for 2-day shipping elsewhere.   Plus, Amazon is more than willing to extend out your Prime membership for order issues, so my 12-month subscription is now a 16-month subscription due to order issues over time with slow shipping or damaged items.  I saved 33% and I didn't even plan on it.


I'm sure Amazon Prime has better things to do than bite you.


Thanks for telling me what I should and shoulnd't buy.

Combine the free 2 day shipping with the interesting music service (great if you like listening to Broadway soundtracks) and the streaming options (which have been fantastic since they got HBO) and it's a worthwhile service.  

That, and if you do enough orders with them over time, the cost per-order on just the free upgrade to 2-day shipping becomes minimal.  Plus, unless I don't need it in 2-days, I defer to the No-Rush Shipping (which normally comes in 2 days from shipment date anyway) and get a free $1 to spend on movies/music/books per order.

Thank God it wasn't something else getting hard.

Not over Oreos, no. A man has to have some kind of standards.

Ok, so my Monster headphones got rejected for "wrong" item. No surprises there!!! And there is no TIV now, so I will have to hold onto it and hope it surfaces again. :wall:

It had one yesterday, though only from $99 (LN) to $49 (A).  Guess those dried up with people locking it in a second time after the rejection.


I had a Bass Pro Strike rejected for cracked disc. These rejections are getting annoying. My SD cards are not processing, even though one has been delivered last week. The other one, sent the same time, hasn't had any updates since arriving in Cincinnati a week ago.

I think they are nitpicking when it comes to rejections, as the Backyard Football that came back to me had a tiny crack in the center ring of the disc though it played without issue.


I found that I need to make sure the title plays OK before shipping it off, which takes a bit of time for disc games, moreso if they're PS3/PS4 games and need an install.  If nothing else, for my sanity's sake.
