Without expanding the comments on their Facebook page, Billy's last post was March 7th and Vicki's was February 11. So on second thought they still seem to be around, though I don't think their presence online has been that noticeable in the past few months. And who knows how often they're behind the main account posting.

I don't sit in on meetings with them, but from complaints I've read from ex-employee complaints on Facebook and from here: http://www.glassdoor...1_IC1139740.htm their CEO Marmaduke wants things done his way whether or not that's best for business. I remember reading something where people were questioning Marmaduke's decision to open up Sun Adventure Sports stores when he was shuttering Hastings B&M locations.

i dont know about you guys, but their search is different now. It shows suggestions for what you are searching for, and recommended products and their prices in a drop down while typing in a search. Hopefully that means there are other improvements on the site I havent looked long enough to find :-)

Wow, my Dead Space 3 order placed on 2/17 is still "in process"? It's nearly a month later! Has anyone else had this same issue?

Well, it looks like we all "missed out" on this "sale" as it's currently past 5 PM central time. From Facebook:

Flash Sale Time! Get 30% off when you buy 3 qualifying Used Books, CDs, or Movies + FREE STANDARD SHIPPING w/code: FLASHMOB. This offer is valid through 5pm CST today 3/14/13. Online only. Shop Qualifying Titles: http://www.gohasting...mpaign=Facebook

For what it's worth, graphic novels were essentially excluded again since approximately only 10% of the usual used selection was included.

I think the sale was only up for about 3 hours or so. It might have been decent on some movies or music.

40% off used books/movies/cds when you buy 4 or more code OHMELUCKYCHARMS

Everything is so ridiculously priced I couldnt even find something to buy at 40% off. Sad sad day. At least Im saving money I guess.

Same. Tis' just a depressing time when I can't even get one order in on a 40% off sale, when the problem in the past was I couldn't get enough items because they sold out so quickly. Now I'm just staring at the items in the cart, and they just stay in stock, and I'm not pressing checkout because I don't even want anything with the code that doesn't discount enough to make up the 50% markup on their items, lol.

"40% off on when you buy 4 or more of everything that isn't a video game"

It's like these people don't want my money.

A couple of graphic novels on my list came in stock for under $2, and a few more were categorized so that the discount worked. Maybe this is common knowledge, but the discount will apply on the qualifying items even if you don't have 4 qualifying items, as long as you have 4 items total.

Don't ever email them because their email customer service is garbage.

No kidding. Here's the response I received this morning.

"There seems to have been a glitch with this order on this item. I have cancelled this transaction so you can replace the order so it can reprocess. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please allow 3-10 business days for the funds to ber eleased to your payment method."

So now they want me to replace the order, when the Dead Space 3 at $32 deal is long dead? No thanks.

They probably mean, reorder it at full price, then call customer service and have them adjust the order price. Either way, it's a huge pain in the ass for the customer that their CS can't just fix orders.

Randomly checked Gohastings and noticed Lumines for $3.99. Most of the time games priced like that are out of stock but somehow, this was shown in stock. I ordered one. $6 something shipped. Let's see if it goes through.

a whole week of sales and I didnt buy a single thing. Usually I spend around $400 on a week long sale like this. I have a feeling gohastings is going to lose a lot of online customers if they dont lower their prices back to where they were....

Copped a red 3DS XL for 162.27 plus shipping.
Was disappointing that I had no car to get to Target this week but this more than makes up for it.
Waiting+paying little for shipping>instant gratification for an extra 16 dollars in tax.
