Panini America Returning Live Redemption Trade-Up Program to the 2013 National

July 22, 2013

Panini America Redemption TradeUp

Panini America officials on Tuesday announced that the company will once again conduct its Live Redemption Trade-Up program on location during next week’s 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.

The unique initiative will be conducted live at the Panini America booth and will afford those collectors in attendance holding multiple outstanding redemption cards FOUR MONTHS OR OLDER AND ALREADY PENDING IN THE PANINI AMERICA REDEMPTION SYSTEM the opportunity to trade them in for a card or cards of higher value.

For example, a collector holding four outstanding redemption cards with a combined Beckett value of $100 will have the chance to swap those four cards for one $100 card via a carefully constructed grab-bag system. The Panini America Customer Service team has assigned values to replacement stock and will offer grab bags containing one autograph or prime memorabilia card at $50, $100, $150 and $200 levels.

Each grab bag will offer minimum values at the depicted levels but many will deliver more than the listed value. Some $50 grab bags will contain cards valued at as much as $80; $100 grab bags will contain cards valued at as much as $140, $150 grab bags will contain cards valued as much as $180, and $200 grab bags will contain cards valued at as much as $250. Each grab bag may also include live onsite redemption cards good for boxes of product.

The Panini America Redemption Trade-Up program will be separated by sport, and collectors will get to choose what sport they select as a replacement.

In order to help expedite the process, collectors participating in the Panini America Redemption Trade-Up program are encouraged to bring with them print outs from the Panini America Website of the outstanding redemptions they want to have replaced at the National. A Customer Service team member onsite will verify the outstanding redemptions as well as their values before completing the replacement process.

Each redemption card being swapped out must be a minimum of four months old and already pending in the Panini America online redemption system; collectors may swap out up to $400 in value at the show while supplies last. Collectors also will be required to sign a waiver that states they agree to the random pulled replacement.

The Panini America Redemption Trade-Up program will begin Wednesday, July 31. Stay tuned to The Knight’s LanceFacebook and Twitter for additional details and times, including a preview of the cards that will be available in the program.

    So this is only if you have multiple cards over four months? I have 1 card only so I will not be eligible?

      If the value of the pending redemption is valued lower than $50, it will not qualify for the trade-up program however, we can swap it out for something at the booth.

    Any availability of this program for those of us not lucky enough to go to the National?

  6. July 22, 2013 3:25 pm

    hey Tracy. there is no way I can make it to the convention and I have quite a few outstanding redemptions. However , I have a good friend who owns a card shop and will be attending. Is there any way I can resume responsibility to him to trade in my redemptions.

      I’m in the same boat. I would love to take advantage of this program, but won’t be able to attend the National. If it’s possible to delegate a swap-out to someone it would be much appreciated!

    You continue to make Topps look like a even bigger joke when it comes to customer service.

    • July 22, 2013 10:53 pm

      100% this, not that they need help looking like a joke.

        agreed, Topps needs no assistance in this area, ever try calling their CS line….prepare to make a day of it!!!!!

    That’s great for those who can go to the Nationals. But what about the ones that can’t. Hopefully Panini does this with online redemptions as well.

    What if we total just under $200? Can we round up or will it round down to $150?

    • csm4panini permalink*
      July 22, 2013 6:13 pm

      It will be bumped up to $200!

    I was able to do this last year and was very pleased. I hope others have the same opportunity this year.

    Panini provides the highest quality collector experience at the National, hands down! The redemption program is just another way for Panini to enhance the National experience. Kudos to Panini for all you do for collectors. Keep up the great work!
