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.

Quote from DJDon View Post :
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...
