Tip if you want to get the $10 games and still use SAVER.

I just added 4 cheap PS2 games I needed since the B2G2 sale on them stack with SAVER & SONY50 and my total came to $14.94 for the 5 games. Technically it's subbing 4 games for the shipping cost but it's a win IMO.

What do I do in this situation?

"Thank you for choosing GameStop.com. The credit card billing information you entered does not match the information on file at your financial institution. Prior to placing a new order, please verify your billing information with your financial institution to ensure all information is accurate and up to date."

All of my information is correct and I just placed an order prior to this that went through fine, and have placed several orders before too. I am paying with GameStop credit and have more than enough to cover cost, also tried using a debit card and it says that same thing.

edit: was able to get my debit to work, won't take my GameStop credit tho... (probably flagged for whatever stupid GameStop reason)

What the hell? I just placed a $85 order an hour ago and they canceled it out of no where. They also kept the trade in credit and didn't put it back on the card.

Is this a glitch or something? How am I going to get back my credit?

After reading through all the experiences going into Gamestop in this thread, I can clearly see why people prefer to shop online. I am always shocked when ANY B/M store actually knows about their own promotions. I am always the one telling them about it, then they have to go look it up, etc. If a B/M store really wants to compete, they should train their damn employees and keep them abreast of all relevant current promotions.


That's really not fair at all. The deal was not suppose to go live until the 4th. Someone made it slip and a bunch of people went to stores saying that its live. The stores did not receive any word on it as it wasn't suppose to happen yet.

Corporate decided to make it go live b/c of that mistakes which could have happened to a store.

Also, its much easier for a site to get the info but a B&M store has a lot more promotions and deals going on. For one employee to know each one for each department is just asking for too much. Yes a Gamestop employee should know about their own specials going on (which they have to since you have to read all the emails and other employees have to say it to each customer), sometimes things slip through.

Though B&M shoppers have to deal with these small troubles, we still (imo) get better deals, get products right there, and can benefit from multiple deals from employees willing to price match / adjust for us.

Don't get me wrong though, online is also great and I get some amazing deals / service online, but B&M is better imo for those listed. Online is better for if you don't mind waiting a few days, deals as well (depends on product though), and high customer service (again depends on what site).

You're probably going to have to call customer service. I don't know if my situation is similar to yours, but their website is complete clown shoes and allowed me to charge several orders worth more than what was available on my gift card before I realized it, instead of depleting them like every other site on the planet. When I tried cancelling the extra bad orders, the funds were locked up as a "negative balance" on my gift card, and I had to call Gamestop customer service for them to put in a request to free up the funds "in 24 hours", so I can't even order any more until then. What a joke (although the customer service rep was cool and figured out what was up pretty quickly).

I guess since no one seems to be able to get the actual coupons, I'll just go price match it at BB. Since I'm a Silver Member and an Unlocked Gamer it really shouldn't be a problem.

I'm just wondering if I should buy them online now or wait until the 5th for a (supposed) coupon. The good thing about buying it now would be: I guarantee the deal, but the bad is I have to wait for the games to come in; plus I have to place separate orders.

If I wait for the 5th, then I can get all the games in one place immediately.

Hmm, so even if I pay all with credit online they still charge tax? I was going to add R&C to the Jak, Ico and GOW Saga I already got in-store, but I think I'll just wait to see if I do get a coupon on Monday. I'd rather not pay tax if I can avoid it.

why wouldnt they charge tax? Tax is something collected by the state and credit is only a form of payment. Buying it online doesnt change that

In some states, when paying fully with store credit you will not be taxed.


that doesn't make sense. you can always buy gift cards right before purchasing something, effectively avoiding sales tax in all stores that carry a form of 'internal currency' (I'd wager that's pretty much every business nowadays, besides really small, local businesses)

I know what you're talking about. I live in Tucson, AZ and we have a small chain of used entertainment stores called Bookman's here. When you purchase items using trade-in credit, you don't have to pay tax up to the dollar amount of the credit (for example's sake, if your order comes to $12 and you use $10 trade credit, you're only taxed on that additional $2).

I guess it's because you've already been taxed on that money once and you weren't exactly reimbursed your tax when you traded items in, so you essentially don't have to play it a second time. Definitely one thing I love about them. Too bad GameStop doesn't have that sort of system...

Please don't defend Gamestop at all when you are completely wrong about this situation. This deal was always suppose to Start 11/1/2012, it's just that Gamestop sucks and only sent out a few coupons to people and now they are saying it is suppose to start on 11/5/2012.

This is such a clusterfuck of a situation. So is this really going to go "live" on the 4th/5th or am I just wasting my time? I went in to GS today to ask them about it and of course they have no idea what I'm talking about.

No one knows for sure man, I would just try to buy this stuff online with the SONY50 & SAVER for free shipping if you want these. Gamestop is a clusterfuck right now with this.

Same here. I got God of War Saga and checked out fine using my PUR card and then when trying to get ICO/SotC and a $5 gift card with my PUR card it locked my account because of this.

I didn't see the option of a $5 gift card; it read $10 minimum. I was probably doing something wrong, though.

Ordered Infamous Collection on one order and Ico collection & Red Faction: Guerrilla (X360) on a second order. If Red Faction comes complete I'll keep it, otherwise I'll return it.

I'm not sure if anyone has mention this or gone this route but I got this price matched at Best Buy. I told the guy about the deal and he just rung up the games half off. This was at the Greensburg, PA store. I'll admit I got the last copies of Jak and Dexter and Ratchet and Clank (only bought 1 copy of each), but they had a ton of copies of inFamous, God of War, Uncharted, and Killzone.

Hmm, so I was thinking about signing up for a PUR membership just to get the 2 games I wanted out of this, Journey and Ratchet & Clank, and just have a couple of questions for anybody kind enough to answer. I'm pretty sure the answer to this is "yes" but I'll ask anyway - it's free to sign up for just basic PUR membership and that's all you need for this, correct? Also, does it take effect immediately once you have activated it or whatever, i.e. would I be able to at least attempt to get the games with those codes right after I activated the membership or is there a waiting period?

It sounds like a real clusterfuck right now from what everybody is saying but I figure there's no harm in at least trying it by going to sign up and then give it a shot trying to order online. And if it fails oh well, I guess having a basic PUR membership could reap future rewards.

Thanks for any help! :)

From Gamestop's product page:

God of War Saga Includes:

  • God of War
  • God of War II
  • God of War III
  • God of War: Origins Collection which includes:
    • God of War: Chains of Olympus*
    • God of War: Ghost of Sparta*
  • Exclusive Bonus Content*
  • Voucher For 1 Trial Month of PlayStation Plus*
  • Remastered for HD, DUALSHOCK Control, Full PlayStation Network Trophy Support and 3D (3D supported only in God of War: Origins Collection*)
(God of War: Origins Collection and DLC available with new version only)

If you read the description closely, it does essentially say the PSP games are on a voucher and that you are only guaranteed them when buying a new copy.

You could have bought only inFamous and got the free shipping. As long as the game is $24.99 or more BEFORE the 50% off, you're good to go.

...Still trying to figure out why I was charged tax using GS credit. Unless the 'no tax' is meant for used.

No, the only reason I added the extra stuff is because SAVER was not giving me the free shipping. I know it was supposed to give me free shipping on items before the coupon, but it was not working for me. No biggie since I was going to get the extra stuff anyway and it looks like I was pretty lucky compared to what everybody else is going through to make this work for them. Canceled or banned orders, trying to price match in different stores, and getting anyone at a GameStop store to know what corporate is doing. Good luck to everyone.
