Wanted to get Mass Attack, Yoshi's Island, and Mario vs DK, but the closest store was out of Kirby. I may hit another store that said it was in stock tomorrow, but if I miss out it's not the end of the world (...or is it?).

Yeah... this was covered already. you can't exchange one game.


A nice guy at the TRU I went to let me swap one. He couldn't give me back $59.99 for a game, only $39.99 so he discounted the game I wanted in exchange to match the price. It's just gonna be YMMV but expect no.

Does anybody know how spot on the TRU store pickup system is with locating in-stock games? I want to pick my son up Wipeout2(Wii), Wipeout 2(360), and Once Upon a Monster and only one is shown in-stock at all the local stores. Does the website list "0" in-stock ones stock is below a certain point or does "0" mean they are wiped clean for sure?

Don't trust it. I can't count the number of times a game has been in the store when the site said it wasn't.

Can anybody tell me, has Best Buy been honoring this with price matching?

So I bought MotionSports and everything I'm reading says this game is junk. It says refund price 13.33 on the receipt, does that mean I can just return it by itself and get that? It doesn't seem like I should be able to since that gives me the same discount without buying 3 games, but I don't see what else it could mean.

TRU was out Batman all week. Not getting anymore until after sale. Bestbuy refuses price match. The TRU shipping makes that not worth it. Now what? Anyone got a free shipping from TRU?


I've been fortunate enough to have a TRU who has all the games in stock that I needed. I have noticed that the inventory checker isn't always right. I've found games where it was listed as either not in stock, or limited only to find a bunch of them in store.

I grabbed Arkham, Fifa 12, and Dark Souls yesterday. I'm tempted to go back one more time and grabbed a few more games before the sale ends, but with Origin PC sales my wallet is crying out hehe!

Also couldnt exchange a game even though it's during the B2G1 sale. Way to lose business. Instead I'm considering just returning everything over the $20 I'm getting ripped off.

You can say good for TrU but on a legitimate return/exchange the customer can get screwed. Even though the deal is B2G1 if you exchange something you can no longer get that B2G1 deal even during the B2G1 sale. Instead I had to pay $20 more than what it should have been had I actually gotten the B2G1 deal.

Now since I only went for the B2G1 in the first place and didnt get it, I have no reason to keep any of it as I can get it all for that price elsewhere and I dont like TrU. I'll just hold onto it for a while and if I can sell the crap fine otherwise I'll return it.

Won't be doing their B2G1 at all anymore. It just went from us ripping them off to them ripping us off. Find a damn balance! If it's during the sale exchanges should be allowed for the full value of the item. It shouldnt take a million complaints and 5 years for something like that to be fixed. Just some god damn common sense.

Guys I'm confused. Why not just buy the first 2 games again with the new game you want and then immediately return the 2 games you just re-bought with the game from the first group that you wanted to exchange?

If they're going to be idiots, that's fine, but while the sale is still active there are ways to get around their idiocy.

I couldnt do that since Batman was opened. Obviously though I could have done what the guy above said. Oh well.

Im not sure I follow so let me type it out.

I go buy Skylanders x2 + Batman x1 for the initial deal.

Total = 140 (70 + 70 + 0)

I want to exchange one copy of Skylanders. The receipt shows a return price of $49

Now youre saying buy $70 Skylanders + $70 Headset + Batman =
another $140

Now return Skylanders + Batman...

edit ok I missed a part...hang on..

Return Skylanders x2 + Batman for full refund on initial B2G1 receipt = $140 refund (I'd hope)

Now left with Skylanders x1 + Headset + Batman for $140 so yeah youre right I think that should have worked but too late now I suppose.

Exactly.

And everyone was already warned about this at least 50 times this week. Make sure you get what you want or you will have to return all 3 games. 50 times.

Well it was established that after the sale it would work that way but I dont see a reason they couldnt have let me exchange something of the same value during the sale. We can pretend I'm dumb for not thinking of redoing the B2G1 and all that before but I dont think most people would have thought of it. Whatever. It's just poor CS/policies working against them still. At least now (short term) it helps them instead of screwing themselves like in years past but in the long run this will still just bite them in the ass.

I spent about $300 on who knows what and I'll be sure to tell them why everything is going back assuming I return it all.

Edit: To clarify I couldnt return the three things straight up since I'd opened part of it. I was talking about redoing the B2G1 then returning stuff from transaction B on transaction A's receipt. That I didnt think of.

Considering they barely make anything on this sale (their margin is something like 35% on video games), I think they could care less that you're returning your purchases that were made at roughly a 33% discount. They're looking to upsell to soccer moms, not appease CAGs or hardcore gamers.

That's fine too as long as they eventually figure out that their customers dont like part of their policy and it gets fixed. The thing is it will probably take them forever to get it fixed.

Now thats a hoarder. I wonder what kind of money they expect to make even though it is from a B2G1. Seems pretty dumb imo
