Well, got my first negative experience with GoHastings today. I ordered Wolf's Rain Vol.7 DVD and I got an X-Men DVD instead. Going to e-mail them now about it.

If you want more battle manga, try Rurouni Kenshin, Claymore, Gantz, Berserk, Vagabond, Dorohedoro, Blade of the Immortal, or Battle Angel Alita. There are more, of course.

For future reference, you can use this page to search for series that are licensed in English. There's an option to show only licensed series, so be sure to check that.

So I've had my cart loaded up with some stuff for no real reason. For the first time ever after having not checked out, I got one of those email reminders that I have stuff in my cart, like Best Buy (annoyingly) sends. I ignored it. Didn't clear my cart. Then today I got another reminder email, but it included a 5% off coupon code in it to encourage me to complete my check out.

Obviously that's nothing compared to the current deal, and the deals don't/can't stack, but maybe there is some situation where the 5% off might be of some help, like for items that never are part of promotions or something.

Picked up the Dragon's Dogma strategy guide for $10 shipped! Usually I don't use strategy guides but for this game it would be nice :D

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Only guides I'd previously bought were for FFX and X2 but I just bought one for fallout 3 goty and it is huge! May get one for skyrim too since I'm always worried about making the 'right' choices. Bought those 3 new though so no experience with the quality of GH used guides.

Just got an email that I had stuff in my cart and GH sent me a 5% off code, whoopee. I'll wait for the next 30% off sale. Anyone care to guess when that maybe? Also wasn't there a 30% off video game sale before this sale. Thanks.

It all depends.

Some weeks things are week long, some weeks its only a few days then a new deal replaces it. No rhyme nor reason to any of it. And they've stopped putting the end date on the website images. Usually there's an end date on the email images but there wasn't this week. I assume they're trying to get people to buy it now rather than sit on their carts for a whole week.

That's why I had to ask in here. I always pay attention to the end date, but I noticed it wasn't there this time.

I have a few things sitting in my cart, but nothing I desperately want, so I may just sit and wait it out to see if anything else I want pops back into stock or some prices fluctuate or something.

Pretty much what I'm doing. And by the low activity in the thread this week, either most everyone else is doing it too or people just aren't that chatty this week.

Well usually the "chatty" are more just people complaining about Hastings, so it seems to be a pretty good week in that regard. ;D

Yeah I did, they told me to keep the item and they will be refunding me for the purchase. Thumbs up for Hastings for that.

Just finished my regular chat with the Hastings supervisor, and discussed some of the recent issues.

Okay, so I have some good and bad news for the poly mailer issues.

So apparently poly mailers were never meant to be used for the larger packages. It is even written in their handbook on how to ship packages (that all employees are supposed to use before packaging the item) that larger packages have to go in a bubble mailer, and not poly mailers, so I guess there was a miscommunication somewhere when they started ordering poly mailers by the bulk for everything.

Hastings has re-ordered a large amount of the regular bubble mailers from before and will begin phasing out the poly mailers for bigger packages since they aren't supposed to be ship that way to begin with. Also the handbook specifically notes bigger boxsets such as DVDs have to go in bubble mailers. Games are still in the hazy area, so I will get back to you when I find out about those.

Also CDs, and anything that are in jewel cases are also not supposed to be put into a poly mailer, so they are going to start phasing out poly mailers for CDs as well.

For smaller packages unfortunately, such as first class mail for DVDs and games, items will still be delivered in poly mailers.

So that is some good news at least that they have decided to go away from the poly mailers for the bigger packages and will be going back to the bubble mailers, but of course this change will take some time as they have to make sure all employees who are shipping things out are actually properly reading the handbook, or they just need to pay more attention to what they are packing up.

It will take some time, but this is at least a step in the right direction, and also glad they are listening to the complaints, and doing something about it.

But yeah, that was the main topic of conversation.

Rawr! :bouncy:

That sounds reasonable, thanks for the info.

Hopefully they don't consider large boxed special editions as the "games" category and instead as a "larger package" category.

The movie is cropped to fit on full screen TVs without the black bars. WS is widescreen, so the movie is in letterbox format (black bars above and below the picture), but you get the whole picture.
