So what is the return process like? Like do they give you a printable return shipping label if you decide to return the games for w/e reason? I'm asking in part for a friend who I know is into DS games, and for them this deal is perfect, but they never ordered from the site before. Basically their cautious about it. Thanks.

What's hilarious is that you didn't even bother to check why it says that.

Hint hint, they list the lowest price of all available platforms.

You can just email their customer service and they'll send you a return label so you don't have to pay shipping. It's a generic label so you can print off and use as many copies as you need.

I emailed them and received the label within 2 hours.

And for those wondering, I'm 9 of 11 with their used games as far as working and complete. I had 2 that did not work and only 1 of those looked pretty rough. The rest were in excellent condition.

Learned my lesson the last time they ran this promotion. I ordered 3 games with 1 getting cancelled almost immediately. I contacted support and they said it was too late to cancel and I would have to ship the 2 games back with a prepaid shipping label. I shipped them back over a month ago and goHastings says they have no record of my return, so it looks like I threw $40 out.

I have been happy with their used games so I continue to buy when they do 25/30% off, just wanted to give people a heads up of what to expect with this promo if an item gets cancelled.

I tried to make this work, but tax and shipping made it not worth the trouble. I managed to find PS3 used copies of WWE All Stars and Crysis 2 at 42 and 46 dollars, respectively, added LBP2 in there for a dollar, but by the time it added tax and shipping on, my invoice was well over 100 bucks.

Considering you were at 89 before the 8%+ tax rate in most of Texas (which would put you almost at $100 to begin with), I'm not quite sure how $6-7 for shipping is the deal breaker there.

Edit: I am assuming you're in Texas since, you know--- you have no location listed and your name is JoshTX

Don't bother to try understanding some folks reasons for stuff being a dealbreaker. Even though it's been explained innumerable times that GH ships from individual stores and that's the reason behind the individual shipping charges for each game, people still want the company to lose money to ship stuff to them.:-#

As for the tax thing, it might be a law that someone's individual state may have passed requiring ALL internet sites to charge sales tax, regardless of if they have a physical presence in the state or not. It's up to the consumer to be informed on such things, though they always fault the store/site for not informing them.

Does gohastings games usually come in original cases? I want to order a few older games (Gears of War 1 and 2, maybe MGS4) but I don't want the platinum hits or greatest hits versions.

I don't know if it would be luck or not or if there's a good chance of getting the original version.

Usually, yes. It's a little silly, but they do count the lowest-priced game as $1, so if you get something else canceled, it's essentially B1G1$1.

As for me, I was unlucky enough to get 2 games canceled...but I made sure that the $1 game was least likely to get canceled. Hence, if it the order actually goes through, it's essentially buy 1 game for a $1 (well, technically $3.28).

Since you typed "some folks" as opposed to referring to me, I'll go ahead and assume you weren't including me in your opinion of "some folks" thought process, considering those opinions weren't mine.

As far as the deal goes, we have an 8.75 percent tax rate here in Austin, and the shipping pushed it just a liitle over what I was wanting to spend. I'm going to gamble on the idea that within 1 to 2 months, amazon will have all 3 of them at 39.99 each or less as part of a sale or DOTD. And I'm not sure if THQ or EA went with that online pass BS this time around, but getting them new will eliminate that issue.

Whatever pricing algorithm goHastings uses sometimes leads to non-sensical prices. Case in point: Call of Duty: Black Ops Hardened Edition for $180. Other examples:

My Horse and Me: Riding for gold (Wii) - $67.40
Pokemon Ranger (DS) - $94.95
Dynasty Warriors 3 Xtreme Legends (PS2) - $68.31

Yup, this is the way to go - if you can tailor your order to put the 'least likely to be canceled item' as your $1 item, do it that way.

Inadvertently got Fallout: New Vegas for $1 during a sale last year this way, though I actually thought it was likely to be canceled - so it's doesn't always work the way you think!

Honestly, they should keep a backlog of orders for at least a week instead of canceling them outright, and give us the option to keep our order on hold and in queue. This whole 'instant cancelation' thing isn't very good business. At the very least, they should allow us to fill in gaps in our orders, so if the $1 item gets zapped, we should be able to add one on the phone.

Complain some more, file a BBB complaint. If you're loud enough eventually they'll give in and make it right for you. Giving up is what they want you to do.

Gah, both my full price games have shipped, but not the $1 game, so I'm getting nervous. At least the $1 game isn't showing OOS on the website, so I'm hopeful it will ship at some point.
