ALL TRADE-INS CANCELLED DO NOT SHIP- some are not canceled. Specifically ones not posted. Up to you to trade them in. Update: They accepted a non-canceled trade in for me, but might be too late to send them in.


Hello,

We're contacting you about Trade-In #TRN-969xx70-xxxx143
TRN-98xxx-xxxxx274. Unfortunately, we recently discovered that an error caused one or more items in your order to be displayed at an incorrect trade-in value.

Due to this, we're unable to accept the item(s) for the incorrectly posted trade-in value(s). We've canceled your trade-in, and any canceled items we receive will be returned to you. You can check the status of your returned items in Your Trade-In Account here:

https://www.amazon.com/tradein/youraccount

At any given time, despite our best efforts, a small number of the millions of items on our site may be mispriced. We're very sorry for this disappointing news.

We value your business and hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,
Customer Service Department
Amazon.com

Nice. In for 2 Gremlins (best trade-in value yet +$15.50/each)...

Used $9 (Amzn credit) --> $40 (Amzn credit) woot

Edit: Cancelled my order. (Reason: TIV not dropping.) <--- Told ya! Wink

As stated by sniperruff:

And here we see again the typical stages of a slickdeals arbitrage

1. discovery
2. massive exploit
3. questions of logistical possibility
4. questions of morality
5. contact made to CSR regarding steps 3 or 4
6. huge debate flares up regarding steps 3 or 4
7. lynching schedule for person(s) responsible for #5
8. all orders cancelled
9. feeling of betrayal flares up
10. law suits threatened
11. nothing happened and life goes on

I was wrong you need to click on the new tab to find it at the lower price.

trade ins have a "ship by" date but reading comments by various people who do it regularly in other threads, amazon is not usually very strict about this date and a few days late also works. This is very YMMV though, so use caution.

Looking at the number of trade in deals today itself, prime membership will pay for itself pretty soon.
