If a game is scanned for refurbing, it will be shipped back because the label it prints is not scannable for sale... unless the manager is a douche who decides to throw away the printed stickers and print their own stickers on the side... which seems like a lot of work for Gamestop loyalty.
Those shitty discs you see in Gamestop inventory are ones that were accepted without refurb fees because of varying opinions from different employees.
Hey, thanks for the explanation. That actually makes a lot of sense.
