How quickly does an order show up in "Order History"? Is it as soon as the order is placed? Just asking to check if I need to try it again or not since the order crapped out on my after I clicked "Place Order" during checkout.

It should show up right away. You should also get an email confirmation right away. If you didn't get either, it didn't go through.

Hi, I'm mostly a quiet lurker here lol but I had a question for you guys. I tried for 2 and a half hours to place my order and every time i would click to submit the order I'd get an error message and my cart would empty. So I re-placed it several times hoping it would finally go through. Well even though every single one of my attempted orders was said to be a failure, I have like 10 pending orders in my account history now. Is there a way to cancel these online or will I have to wait till morning and call them? If I call them first thing, will they give me any hassle about cencelling the orders? They can't possibly have started processing because I didn't even attempt my first order till around 10 tonight. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

Edit: Even though there's orders showing up in my account I didn't get a single email confirmation

Yeah, definitely cal them ASAP in the morning. That's really the only way to fix the issue in a timely fashion.

Though if your cart emptied it seems like it might have gone through, based on what the guy in the quote above said. It seems like its kind of a crapshoot at this point in terms of the mysteries of completed order statuses.

Ok thanks. I'll call as soon as they open. This is my first time ordering from them and the thought of them possibly saying they can't cancel the orders has me incredibly stressed. :-(

Super deal considering how hard it's getting to find boxed DS games anymore. All of my nearby GS's trashed their DS cases and I refuse to buy card-only.

Don't worry it gets better when the newer games that get to a really unbeatable price with the code are miscategorized so when you use the code it doesn't work even if it says Used.

What exactly is your complaint?

Previously Viewed doesn't equal Used, as you noted.

Previously Viewed items are pulled from their stores' own rental stock. This is all explained in the first post and on Hastings' own website.

Whenever Hastings has Used sales, Previously Viewed games are rarely ever included. But for some reason, Hastings has no problem including Previously Viewed movies in Used sales and they do so regularly. It's just how they do it.

None the less, it's usually always noted on their website if Previously Viewed items are included or excluded on a used sale, and I always note it in the first post.

If you're frustrated because you're trying to find in stock Used games that work with the sale, you'll notice if you read through the first post, there is a section with helpful links that will display in stock Used items only, excluding those Previously Viewed items.

If you're frustrated because you want Previously Viewed games to be included in the sale, I don't know how that makes them "one of the worst sites" because of a business decision. After all, there's a million other complaints you can make about Hastings before you even get to the whole Previously Viewed Games not being included in Used sales thing.

I got 3 shipment emails early this morning at like 2:30 am but obviously nothing is seriously shipping that early. And I only had 2 items, so will see how this turns out especially since one game was originally out of stock but the same item appeared twice although that one was not out of stock. Last few games I ordered came quick and were in great condition (and with all the DLC codes, however I don't expect that with every order I make).

Ok I called gohastings as soon as they opened and explained to them that their website specifically told me there was an error on each and every order I placed, telling me to please try again later, and I asked them to cancel the orders. The girl told me she may or may not be able to cancel the $200 in charges on an $18 order I tried to place and said she'd send me an email and let me know how it went. She said "if for some reason they won't cancel I can send you a return shipping label and you can mail them back for a refund". But I told her that's not ok because their website states it may take up to 3 weeks to refund my money and I can't have them holding my money all that time when it was their website that caused the problem. And she just got huffy about it and said basically that's just how it's gonna be.

So good luck to you guys that also had this problem. I hope your call turns out better than mine. I'll let you know what the email says if it ever comes.

I have 9 packages shipped already.

Still a long way to go before everything is shipped though, but starting off on a good note.

I got 3 shipment emails early this morning at like 2:30 am but obviously nothing is seriously shipping that early. And I only had 2 items, so will see how this turns out especially since one game was originally out of stock but the same item appeared twice although that one was not out of stock. Last few games I ordered came quick and were in great condition (and with all the DLC codes, however I don't expect that with every order I make).


If you only had two things in your order, you get a confirmation for each one and then the final confirmation for the entire order, so it's perfectly natural to get 3 confirmations.

I tend to defend Hastings most of the time, but I will say one of my pet peeves is that while Previously Viewed and Used are always separated for their sales, they can't figure out or don't care to figure out how to separate them whem you searched Used games. The PV's mix in with them all. Small complaint but it's a pain nonetheless.

Question for those who receive library versions of TPB's. Got my first ever one in where they have that plastic cover and backing to it. I don't like it personally. If I take it off, does it ruin the book in any way or is it pretty easy to take off with no problems?

They're usually easy to take off, but most libraries will have adhesive on it somewhere, or have it taped, so just pay close attention to the entire cover before you just decide to start tearing it off from somewhere.

Still, at $3.xx per game, they are worth picking up if the kids get even a days worth of enjoyment out of each one.

Same here. I was excited to see that some games were only $1.40, but the site was down and I had to sleep. =\ Not the best outcome, but I have enough games in my backlog to last me until the next GH mega sale.

Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword for $3.62 is definitely the best value for price out of that entire list. Nice find!

So good luck to you guys that also had this problem. I hope your call turns out better than mine. I'll let you know what the email says if it ever comes.


depends if they want to send the email or not. there's usually two girls. i forgot the good one as she will not hesitate to do what you tell her. the other one is stubborn and usually ask you to ship stuff back. the good one has a nice soft squeaky feminine voice and she works afternoon the last time i remembered. i usually chat/flirt with them about random stuff a bit to get them to cancel.

i hoped you paid with a credit card so you can chargeback at least. if you paid with debit there's no guarantees but dispute those charges as unauthorized.
