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?



You should contact blucadet3, it sounds like you might have gotten one of the stolen Library copy TPBs he was talking about....


Everyone buying graphic novels do me a favor and see if they have evidence of having an RFID tag ripped off the back inside cover (they may also have a white square RFID tag in them still) or tape on the hardcover under the dust cover. Trade paperbacks will have a harder plastic coating on the cover and tape reinforced spines. We just had a guy arrested for selling hundreds of our library graphic novels and books to Hastings and many of them were sold in the last couple of weeks. We recovered a few hundred, but many more went out the door. Just curious how many made it into the mail.

Thanks.

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.


Shoot sounds like I got the stubborn girl. She said I should get an email in about 20 minutes and that was 2 hours ago. I don't think the flirty chit-chat will work since I'm a girl haha :-D. I paid with a debit card from my credit union. I think online transactions usually run as credit but I'm not sure how it works.

Edit: I just called back and she was very nice and helpful this time. Looks like everything was cancelled except my original order that I wanted plus an extra $15-ish worth of Blu rays I will have to send back. It's a huge relief. Now I just have to wait for my bank to release the hold on my funds :)

Good pick ups man! :applause: I need to add KZ2 to my wish list for next time. That's crazy cheap. Been tempted to play Castlevania again, that's a low enough price to tempt me.

BTW, 2 of my orders have shipped already.

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.


Have you tried the helpful links in the first post? That helps if you're just browsing used games. If you're searching, yeah, PV will come up unless you take a few extra clicks on the search filters, but I'd imagine its only really an issue with games from large series on multiplatform, like say Madden.

But if you, for example, search for "Madden", you have to click "Games" on the left to narrow it down. From there you still have 116 results. If you then go to Promotions at the top filter row and click "Best Selling Used Games", it filters out New, Previously Viewed, and Out of Stock games.

That's obviously not that intuitive or user friendly at all, but you can filter out PV.

Your copy was possibly stolen from a library and traded into Hastings. Like RayBay said, contact blucadet3.

Is blucadet3 doing refunds? I'm not trying to be a jerk, but what is he going to do that GoHastings won't? I mean contact him and let him know, but I would contact GH first and explain the situation and see about a refund first. Then Blucadet can sort things out with GH.

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).



When they update the system every night, they spend that time also mass emailing all orders that were fulfilled THAT DAY, so it probably shipped sometime in the afternoon after you placed your order and you just didnt get the email until that night because thats when they send out the emails...

Something weird happened in my order yesterday... I was about to check out with 13 items in my cart and noticed that a game (Kingdom Hearts 2) in my cart showed up as Previously Viewed instead of Used. The 30% and free shipping was working on it, but I've heard about the condition of PV games so I removed it from my cart. Then I reopened the item page for it and it said that the PV was out of stock and the Used was in stock, so I hit "Add to Cart" on the Used... and it showed up on my cart as PV, and just like before, the code worked on it. I kept it in my order, but I'm really hoping it is in decent shape when it comes, because it'll be difficult to explain the weirdness to customer service if I need to return it.

ETA: Not that this is the only site weirdness I've noticed on GoHastings. When I remove one item from my wish list, sometimes it removes another one too (no, I'm not clicking twice...) and also, sometimes an item mysteriously drops out of my cart when I have a bunch of stuff in there (and it's not that it's gone OOS). Definitely a love-hate relationship with Hastings.

I also refuse to buy DS games with no case, and (if anyone cares) I got the following:
Elite Beat Agents $3.48
Magical Starsign $3.48
Scribblenauts $4.90
Touch Detective $5.93
Professor Layton and the Curious Village $10.50
Flower, Sun and Rain $10.50

Hi, when you input a promo code when you're in the cart screen, is it supposed to apply the discount automatically or do you have to go through the check out process before it applies? Thanks.
