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

How do you do this? First lock in the trade in and then buy the item?

Thanks- I missed out on the Dark Knight deal due to backorder, but ordered 2 of each of the other titles and submitted the trade in request right away.

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.
thanks.

yup. you should lock in the trade in value first because prices could drop in seconds.

Haha this is awesome.

If it has to be shipped by the 30th, didn't someone say previously(in a different thread) that as long as it's shipped, it is fine? Meaning, as long as we print the label out prior to the 30th, we are fine?

Question regarding that...
