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

Can we ship all the DVDs in the same box?
If you lock in all trades together yes. If you lock them in one at a time then you need to ship one at a time.

if you submit all the tradeins together. For each tradein, a separate box.

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...
these are tracked, so it will show when the shipment was scanned by the UPS or USPS store aka the mail in date.

If you don't have prime, price match the DVDs at target or bestbuy to get them in time.

Yeah I suppose, I never think of that. One plus side to living in Oregon.

Getting them via Prime, will be here Saturday, will hand them right back to my postman.

So, for $8 ($5 of which was promo credit), I'm getting $23. I only paid $20 for Prime.

Not bad. laugh out loud

Why would you get banned? It's their own decision, and they clearly have a limit on how many you can trade-in. This is a very simple fix on their end, just set it up by default that: Trade-In > Price, no matter what. We've seen this in the past as well, yet its never been changed.

Inception blu ray trade in $20 amazon has it for 15.83.

Hangover part 2 DVD trade in $20. Amazon has for 4.99. Make sure it's the single disk version you buy.
I sort of see what you're saying. . . but I don't totally get it. I see the $20 trade-in on the main page, but when you click on the single disk DVD link to see the $4.99 price, the trade in value shows $2.15. Are you sure the $5 DVD is the $20 trade in one?
