SD2SNES Trade-in Program

Get a new SD2SNES Pro for as low as $99.99!

Stone Age Gamer is offering a trade-in program for those who own an original SD2SNES. 

How It Works

You return your original SD2SNES to us and either receive a discount on an SD2SNES Pro or store credit.

You would choose between 2 options:

  1. Order SD2SNES Pro at discounted price. Stone Age Gamer would then hold your order for 21-days following the order. Once your PCB is received, checked and tested we will ship your new SD2SNES Pro. If your SD2SNES does not show up within 21-days your SD2SNES Pro will no longer be held. However, your order will still be kept alive. If we receive your SD2SNES within 60-days we will ship your SD2SNES Pro at the next availability. If we do not receive any SD2SNES within 60-days your order will be cancelled and you will be assessed a $25 holding fee and the remainder of your purchase will be refunded.
  2. If you are not interested in receiving your discount directly on a SD2SNES Pro purchase you may elect to just trade-in your SD2SNES at anytime and receive store credit that can be spent at anytime on any future order containing any product(s).

Restrictions

  • PCB must be 100% operational.
  • PCB much be in very good condition. No dirt, scratches, cracks, breaks, corrosion, etc. The only exception is minor dust and/or normal edge connector wear.
  • Must be a PCB manufactured by KRIKzz or ikari_01. PCBs from any other manufacturer are not accepted.
    • WARNING: Some Chinese-based manufacturers have sold clones of the KRIKzz manufactured SD2SNES. These PCBs will look very similar to KRIKzz's PCB including the "Made in Ukraine" text. If you do not know the origins of your SD2SNES we highly suggest not submitting it for trade-in. All PCBs will be inspected and tested for authenticity. Failure to pass our examination will result in cancellation of any associated order and you will be assessed a $25 processing fee, plus the cost to ship your PCB back to you.
  • PCB must be unmodified. Any PCBs that have been modified in anyway from how they were received from the vendor will not be accepted.
    • EXCEPTION: We understand some customers may have PCBs modified to fix MSU-1 sound issues. We will allow such modded SD2SNES to be traded-in. However these PCBs will undergo additional mod quality inspection and testing. Failure to pass this inspection will result in a $25 processing fee and the cost of return shipping. If you are not confident in the quality of your modification do NOT submit it for trade-in.

Finding Revision:

  1. Open the cartridge by unscrewing the front two screws using the appropriate bit.
  2. Open the cartridge shell carefully.
  3. Refrain from touching the PCB.
  4. Revision should be printed on the front of the PCB in white. For example you will see "Rev. F". This means the PCB is a revision F.

Turnaround & Inspection

All SD2SNES traded in will undergo a physical examination and a 24-hour long functional test. It may take up to 5 business days for your traded in SD2SNES to be approved. This all depends on the amount of trade-ins we receive.

Failure to meet approval may result in a $25 fee and cost to return the SD2SNES back to you. Fee assessment will be handled on case-by-case basis.

If your PCB is found to be a Chinese-clone PCB you will be automatically assessed the $25 fee and return shipping costs.

FAQs:

  • Q: Does it need to be an SD2SNES purchased from Stone Age Gamer?
    A: No, it must just be an SD2SNES manufactured by either KRIKzz or ikari_01. Any other manufacturer will not be accepted.
  • Q: Do we need to return in the shell?
    A: While it is not required it is highly suggested. The PCB is much more likely to be damaged during transit without a shell and Stone Age Gamer is not responsible for any damage the SD2SNES receives during transit.
  • Q: Is there extra credit for Deluxe Editions?
    A: No, unfortunately we will not give any extra credit for Deluxe Editions. This is because the little credit we could give would most likely be offset by the extra shipping costs you would have to pay by shipping a larger / heavier package.
  • Q: If I have a Deluxe Edition do I need to return the case and manual?
  • A: No. You do not need to return the case and manual. Just the PCB or cartridge with PCB installed. This should help save on return shipping costs.
  • Q: My shipping company does not allow lithium batteries, can I ship it without the battery?
    A: Yes, if there are restrictions against shipping Lithium batteries you do not need to include the battery.
  • Q: I got a custom SD2SNES made. Can I get extra credit for trading it in?
    A: Unfortunately we can not offer extra credit for a customized SD2SNES.
  • Q: Can you sell me just the SD2SNES Pro PCB cheaper, so I can swap it out?
    A: No. Most of the original SD2SNES PCBs had regular SD and mini USB. The Pro has microSD and microSD so the slots would not even match.
  • Q: When will this trade-in promotion end?
    A: We currently do not know. The original SD2SNES market will determine the longevity of the program. However, at this time, we do not foresee it ending before the one year mark. Please understand the Stone Age Gamer reserves the right to terminate the SD2SNES Trade-in Program at anytime. All current trade-ins would still be processed, but we would not accept any future trade-ins.
  • Q: Can I trade-in other flash carts?
    A: No, we have no plans at this time to allow trade-ins of other flash carts.
  • Q: Will you send me a pre-paid return label for my SD2SNES trade-in?
    A: No. Shipping and insurance must be handled by the customer.
