I'm not able to get the FALLBACK code to work. It says it is applied and gives me no errors, but no discount shows up. Anyone else have problems?


Are you sure your books are from the qualified list?

I guess I didn't realize there was a list, however, I just went back and used the link for the "list" and it still doesn't work. From what I can tell, the list just narrows down books to those priced $29.99 or less. Either way, it doesn't appear to be working even when I pick totally different titles from their list link. It also appears to apply the code with no error messages, etc. In the past I think I have gotten error messages that items don't qualify, but I can't remember.

If you want to have the code apply, all three books have to be on the qualifying list. Otherwise the code is applied but gives you no discount.

However, it does seem that the code isn't even working for qualifying titles right now. It appears that they decided to kill the code because of the 20% Off Used promotion. So I'll update the first post.

I'm disappointed that they killed the code since I just figured out a good selection to use it on. I guess I would question whether they really did intend to kill the code since it still appears on their homepage. I'd really love to see them fix it before the end of the day. Thanks for your help, by the way.

Got like 7 books today. 4 arrived in poly bags. 3/4 all had damage directly attributed to where the poly bags ripped. So f-ing unnecessary to damage merchandise in the mail like that. The three in padded envelopes were all in great shape. It seems like others are beginning to complain about the poly bags on Facebook.

No. They didn't have a Veterans Day sale last year. The new week began a couple of days after Veterans Day and it was 96 cent shipping with free shipping later in the week. The week of Veterans Day last year was a non-deal week. The new weekly promotions for this upcoming week, beginning with Veterans Day tomorrow, will be up tonight.

I just bought a new copy of Touch My Katamari from goHastings through Amazon for $7.99 + $3.99 shipping = $11.98 total. I was not able to buy it from the goHastings site because it said it was out of stock for some reason (I wanted to buy it from goHastings.com instead so it would be a little cheaper).

Anyway, is it worth paying $11.98 for it? I loved Katamari for the PSP! and I would love to play this one but people say it is too short. Do you think there will be a better deal for this game during Black Friday or anytime soon? Since I just ordered it I believe I still can cancel it from Amazon.com before it is shipped. Thanks for reading (:

Go for it. The game is too niche to get any BF deals & that will be more than likely the best price to get it new anywhere. If I wasn't burned out on Katamari, I would consider it too ;)

Do any of you think that gohastings will have the same promos last year for black friday/cyber monday? I've been waiting to buy some CDs for a few weeks now and 50% off would be as good as it gets :D

No way to tell for sure just yet. CDs are something they liberally have sales on so I wouldn't be surprised to see 40 to 50% off on used CDs.

Received four books today. Three bubble mailers. One poly bag. HC in poly bag was fine. One bubble mailer was bigger than the book, but the insightful employee sealed it further down and even added extra tape so the book arrived fine! A true hero at Hastings. Another bubble mailer was ripped open at the top nearly the length of the book. It wasn't a Media Mail inspection. So I'm lucky that book didn't fall out. One of the books had a food or drink stain on the bottom that I had to remove with some fine sandpaper. One of my books was the JLA: Tower of Babel TPB which was Like New. I was extremely happy to get that for $7. Last week was a great week for rarer or more expensive books.

Last week I got a packing slip in an envelope the post office marked "found loose in mail". It was a shipment of 8 CDs in a single package, though I don't know what they packaged them in. USPS says they won't even investigate since the total value was under $25. Think I should bother Hastings about it?

Yeah, you should definitely let them know they f-ed up with their packaging. I really don't think they understand how bad their packaging is. But if none of the CDs were really damaged, then they won't refund you or anything.

Yeah, the deals are good. I just started ordering from them and 3 out of 4 orders were damaged in some way. Just going to return my last one and give up. They just ship the items in thing plastic. I can't wait the 2 weeks plus of holding my money anymore.

All right, I'll shoot them an email without expecting a refund then.

I called support to return a damaged item and told them about the packaging. They basically said they have asked them to stop using the non padded mailers and they just continue to anyway. She said she would tell them again.

I don't think this is a problem with poly mailers, actually. When they send out a bunch of items in a single mailer it can tear even if it's a bubble mailer since the items move around so much in it. I asked them to tell their stores to use boxes when sending a bunch of items in a single shipment like that.

yes, bubble mailers can still result in damaged items, but the same amount of items in a poly mailer will result in more damage on average. They should always make sure the bubble mailer is sealed tight around the item, so the items arent able to move around inside.

I was looking up a movie on amazon, found gohastings had a copy, and then actually saw this:
"Previously Viewed (Previously Rental) - 100% PRODUCT GUARANTEE!* Fast shipping on more than 1,000,000 Book , Video, Video Game, Music titles & More! We 100% Guarantee the full functionality of all used and previously viewed product, except its digital con"
Ive NEVER seen them list something as previously viewed, thought it was interesting in this case, since they have both used and PV available on their site. Was hoping their used copy was the same price but it was a buck or two more :-/

Two books in the mail today. One was in super beat up and dirty shape, but not from shipping despite the polybag. Disappointing. The other was a newer used that was in decent shape despite the polybag.
