I wasn't offered to keep it with a refund. They said that I got the $20 coupon for the inconvenience, I said that wasn't good enough and she told me I could return it. I at least got my shipping refunded and can bring the bundle to the store to return.

Via email or phone? I'd respond to the email and ask for a refund or for the RB2:SE bundle to be sent. That's what I did and I got the refund and keep it deal. If you don't get it the first time, try again!

autopiloton - you make it sound like we're the ones who advertised one thing and shipped something entirely different. I don't want Rick band 1 instruments and as I says I'd be happy to return it, but only if they either ship me the right thing or issue a full refund including handling fee. Why should I pay anything at all for something I didn't order and don't want?


I don't think you should have to pay for something you didn't want. Furthermore, I think it should be fixed and no, I don't think you should have to pay for return shipping.

My "oh come on" moment was regarding wanting them to ship you what was displayed and let you keep the wrong item. That's definitely beyond what should be expected. Even more so is the bit about them arranging to not just ship it back but actually pick it up from your door so you wouldn't be hassled at all. Wanting a company to right a wrong is one thing, but voicing how you expect more than a reasonable solution just makes it sound like a temper tantrum.

Obviously, from the previous posts, it is not cost effective for GameStop to pay for return shipping and then try to resell the item, so it seems some people got lucky with keeping the bundle and getting refunded. I'd be awfully surprised if someone gets RB2:SE shipped to them without having to send back the value bundle as opposed to just getting the refund + coupon.

Phone, I figured it would yield better results but I'll give e-mail a shot.

FYI, I used the $20 coupon and my Edge card to buy a used complete copy of Assassin's Creed 2 for $5.50 shipped (with 6% tax). I'm going to trade that to Best Buy for $30 credit. My main motivation for doing this is that I want to use it for a Xbox Live 1600 points card, but the coupon won't work on points cards. As a bonus I end up with an extra $10-$5.50 = $4.50 credit at Best Buy. Hopefully that made sense. I mean I get $30 credit, for the cost of $5.50. I may put the extra $10.01 (4.51 of which is profit) toward an iTunes card or I don't know what. Plus I just wanted to test the Best Buy trade-in waters. I've got the value locked in.

I got my Value edition and there's something slightly odd about this whole affair. Allegedly the reason for this sale was that they had all these "damaged" boxes and thus couldn't sell them as new. Well, mine arrived and there is pretty much no damage to the box at all. I guess maybe a slight little dent in the corner if you're *really* anal, but hardly reason not to sell it as new. Just strikes me as a little odd that they advertised these as being damaged boxes and mine isn't damaged. Is anybody's arriving looking like a damaged box?

All the better, of course, but I'm curious if anyone has received a damaged box.

I think the reason for the sale was becuase the boxes were taking up too much space at the warehouse, and the warning was really just "there MAY be a chance that the box is damaged". Anyway, I sent in an e-mail and just got told that I could request a pre-paid shipping sticker, so I just brought it to the store and returned it.

Anyone get their refund yet? I used all of the money on my edge card for this, and then I tried to use it again and it had about $48 on it. Was that the refund? It wasn't as much as I paid for the bundle or my order.. But it came out of nowhere. I am so confused.

It hasn't shown up on my credit card account yet. It's probably going to take them a few business days to issue it, and then things don't show up on my credit card right away either. If it doesn't show up by Tuesday I'm going to email them again, though.

By the way, I've been enjoying the set. Decided I don't need to upgrade to RB2 instruments. They'd be nice, but then again these use no batteries, and it came with a 4-port USB hub too, so I can hook up guitar, drums and two mics, plus there's another USB port if we want 3 part (and I get another mic - I have two). Also Lego Rock Band (which I also bought) seems to have a better manual calibration feature, or at least it seemed a lot easier then RB1 was when I had it for the PS2, and it seems to have worked well.

I just checked and I got my full refund on the 18th! And I mean FULL. I was also refunded for the purchase price of Lego Rock Band which I ordered along with the bundle. Woohoo! Awesome, Gamestop! I've never been steered wrong by Gamestop before, and still haven't with this outcome. Bravo to them!

Received my refund today as well. Although they only refunded the actual cost of the game, not shipping and taxes. Either way, im not going to make a big stink out of it, the game refund was more than fair. Thanks Gamestop!

I don't think they can put credit back on your Edge Card without swiping it, so for refunds on credit they just ship you a gift card. They sent me one during the B1G1 when I got charged for both games- they just refunded me the difference.

Thanks, Jackie. That makes a lot more sense. I am still trying to figure out where that additional 47.xx came from, but I am not complaining. If I get my full refund on this giftcard and never figure out what it is from, it will just feel like free money to me.
