I believe you got suckered.

Looks like the Gamecube last day to trade in got moved to today.


It's "free" because you probably traded-in and you didn't have to pay anything out of pocket.

^lol, "free" pre-order. Looks like he just added it to your receipt.

Depends on how you feel, but I would go in when he is working and cancel it with HIM. This will negate the previous one he put on your receipt. If you cancel with anyone else, it will count against them.


Yeah I'll be going back and have him do it. I was going to preorder anyway but not at this location anymore. I seldom go to this GS but it was on the way home from BB.

I don't have as much of a problem with GS as others on CAG but this is sleazy shit plain and simple.

This is just total and complete garbage. I am glad to see that you have the sense to realize that it was the individual and not the company though. This is the same thing as the guys that add in a "free" warranty or protection plan that you are actually paying for. Too bad GS fosters this kind of foolishness with their system of no accountability. I think it is ridiculous that the employee that happens to be working is at fault when a preorder is cancelled. Why not just take it away from the person it was under in the first place regardless of if they are there or not when it's cancelled?

Yeah, I hate when I'm in a GS and hear one of the employee's use that BS. "Well, just today, I can offer you a PUR subscription for FREE!" (aka, "Since you just traded in some games, I can subtract the $15 for the sub from the amount of credit you would have gotten; while you're at it, would you like to put the rest of the money down on a pre-order of a game, for MSRP, of course, that will be widely available at every retail outlet??")

They are obviously trained at a corporate level to use those kinds of deceptive 'sales' tactics; it's sickening, especially when you see them hit a real clueless customer (parent, grandparent, non-CAG, ec..) with it. I'm just glad that not every employee succumbs to those shady tactics. You can't really blame the store-level employees either, though..they're just doing what they are told they have to do to keep their jobs.

Yesterday before they closed, i got 19 for ac and 18 for ff almost 60 total. cashier told me that was the last day for the extra 50 and that the trade in should go down. must be a glitch because they're selling ac new for 29.99 and giving 30.40 in credit.

Oh Gosh. Don't let these people get you hooked on the 'glitch' talk. Gamestop knows what they're doing. The 50%, along with the Best Buy coupons/sale, and the Gamestop sale happened to coincide.

lol u should never believe anything at gamestop is free...my local gamestop guy used this tactic on me, i was trading in a game and i got like 23 bucks back or more forget, but he said that if i got power up pro rewards it would be free.. i literally had to keep telling him dude its not free, im gonna get it still but its not free. and he kept trying to convince me it was free even tho i said i was going to get it. lol its pretty bad when u have to overconvince a guy to buy something when hes already agreed. gave him bad reviews and told him to stop calling it free on his survey.

There is a way to review only him. Not sure if it's through the receipt survey or through regular survey....as long as you know his name...a list of names will show. Just be sure you have the correct person. As, sometimes their can be 2 people there with the same name.


Yeah I think each person has their own personal number that is shown on the receipt

All from yesterday 4/1
360:
Batman: AC - $18
Ninja Gaiden II - $2.25
Devil May Cry 4 - $1.25
The Orange Box - $9
Portal 2 - $11

Wii:
Castlevania Judgment - $2.25

3DS:
Cave Story 3DS - $9

In all my time at this site I've never flipped a game but the Batman deal was too good. (I flipped one and had a $5 RZ coupon so it was a no brainer.)

Also, does anyone know anything about a " Free Borderlands 2 preorder" promotion? I could find nothing about it but the manager said I got a free Borderlands 2 preorder. When I checked my receipt they definitely charged the $5 preorder. I need to know if I need to go back with a "you accidentally charged me" mentality or a "your a prick and that's a deceptive sales tactic" mentality.

His GameStop survey also depends on this bit of information.


Just curious..but did you even mention anything about wanting to get borderlands 2 at some point? I was just curious why he would do that and why he would choose that game.

Maybe, but it's not an easy thing to do. You'll get 20% less as cash off base TiV. So if you did it yesterday from the last day of the 50/60% bonus TiV, expect to get about half of whatever you got back as cash.

Eh...it's available for $15 + shipping at half.com if you want it. I'm pretty happy with $20 after bonuses.

Edit: Although it's true you'll get the inferior Black Ops version instead of mine.
