PRICES ARE BACK UP AT REGULAR PRICE. SALE IS OVER

This was not technically labeled a "sale" but more of a "temporary markdown". However, because if something is marked down in price one would consider it to be a sale no? So I labeled it a sale as the topic.

Anyway, there was no AD or anything on GameStop's end directed to the public about when the markdowns would end. I just saw a memo that mentioned some temporary markdowns were happening, so I wanted to give back to the CAG community that has given me good deals for the last 5+ years information about the deal. Simply put, GAMESTOP had the right to mark the prices back up anytime they wanted to without notice. They did nothing wrong except give you games at a good price if only for a day on some.

Most of the time when they have advertised sales/offers there is usually fine print that states prices, limited availability or sale terms are subject to change without notice, so no matter how hard you want to fight them about it, you will lose. However, in this case they did not even need to put any fine print because there was no flyer, ad or paper etc given to the public.

If you missed out on the deal, or were not satisified, just give it a rest and move on.

I already have SF4 but for 20 bucks I'm going to have a sealed one because I like the game so much.

To the guy above me yeah why not the return policy is 30 days for sealed games just don't open it then return rebuy.

GameStop usually never ever price-matches or adjust's their price to match their current price. (YMMV) You can probably get around it on Used titles with their 7 day guarantee, but not on new items..

WOW !! I so love Gamestop and these new games for $19.99 sales. :applause:

And the B2G1 sales that stack with EDGE too.:D

Street Fighter IV for for $19.99 !? I too will buy one sealed for my collection since I paid $59.99 before costume downloads but have been enjoying my fightpads and TE sticks immensely although play much less often then after it first came out in Feb.

He's going to return it, since he assumes there will be no stock, so now they'll have it in stock, and it will be at the sale price. He'll receive his 39.99 back and then he can rebuy the one now instock.

if i didnt spend so much money already this summer, i would probably buy wario.


and sf4 for $20 is a steal. unless you absolutely hate fighting games, you should definitely buy it.

GameStop is now getting some of my money. First time in around 2 years. I bought Bionic Commando last time they had this $20 deal, but before that was Kingdom Hearts 2.

Street Fighter IV is calling my name!

ZOMG -- It'd be absolutely amazing if SFIV was $20. After watching Evo2009 I kind of regret trading it in.

Which is why GS credit is vastly superior to GC credit normally.

With the HWV used games sale though and the fact that they take a GC giftcard, you should be able to find something to buy that trades back into GS credit at minimum 1:1 provided you bring in 6 games to trade in so 40% TIV boost or bonus plus 10% EDGE bonus if you're smart enough to have it.;)

WTF is going on with these sales? I mean when am I going to find time to play all this lol. Any older CAGer remember these type of sales with games when Atari 2600/7800 was dying out?

The credit came from the last Gamestop sale. Bionic Commando for $20, opened it up, hated it, traded into Game Crazy for $27.50 with MVP. ;)
