People on CAG were laughing at people who would go in-store for these deals, while they, quote, "sat back and relaxed and got these deals." Well who's relaxed now? Went in and spent about 15 minutes in line and got 2 Kinects, (Amazon trade-in) Tales of Xillia LE, (so sexy, it should be called Tales of Sexyllia) (I should shut up now) a year of PS+, and ZombiU. Have no interest in ZombiU. I wanted NSLU, but they didn't have it, so I just got ZombiU free with the B2G1. I'll return it and the Kinects tomorrow and then buy back the Kinects with NSLU at a Gamestop that had it. The Kinects were ringing up wrong too. $40 for the non-AC adapter and $50 for the AC adapter one. What a pain.

 

This amused me quite a bit. :) I'll swing by 1 or 2 stores today while I'm out just to see if there is anything worth picking up.

I tried to get two games last night from Gamestop, since I have a $25 Gift Card I need to use. I placed the order and it did not take the gift card, even though I placed it in there.

You can see it there, but it still says the original total after hitting submit. I cancelled the order to try it again (took me two hours to get through to order last night, so I assumed it was just a mistake). Now, it won't let me reorder it, since I already "purchased" those games and they are limit 1 per customer. I sent an e-mail to their customer service, but I'm not holding my breath. This was the worst Gamestop.com experience I've had so far!

 

I have the same identical problem, waiting on hold with CS.

Answers on Gift Card issue. They are showing up inside payment method. Most orders didnt process till early this am, if you recheck you GC balance it should be zero by now (which mine is). Also, check your pre-auth on the CC used for remainder of balance and that should be correct. He doesnt know why it doesnt show on order history details, but everything is there. We have to put on faith with GS, that if real hard.

 

Btw, 43 minutes on hold before them picking up.

Okay so I went to Gamestop to get a 1 year PSN card and I had a $5 off any one gamestop item coupon (the PowerUp Rewards one) and tried to use it on the 1 year but they couldn't do it "because it was on sale" (and they asked the manager)?

 

Is this normal or just BS?  I swear I've used them on games/items that were discounted before...

Gamestop customer is the worst. Been on hold for long than an hour and still nothing. Although, they replied to my email saying they can't cancel my order since it's been ready to ship which I don't believe, but whatever. I'll be returning it to a store once I get it. Never again will I order from their website.

I had the same problem when I tried to use a $10 off coupon and was told the exact same thing; the manager even quoted the fact that it said "Cannot be combined with any other offer". I also could have sworn I've used them on discounted games in the past.

It should have worked.

Really? I bought 2 PSN+ cards, Battlefield 4 ( :360:), and Killzone Mercenary at about 2:30am EST, and the $10 coupon didn't work at all. Even worse, after the employee tried the coupon and it didn't work, he forgot to remove it from the transaction and as a result, my receipt shows that it was applied to BF4 before its discount to $24.99, so my coupon was wasted (it's not in my PUR account anymore). :wall: :bomb:

 

I'm going to try to explain the situation at a different GS, hopefully to an employee that knows me, but I don't know what they can do beyond manually deducting $10 from another purchase I make.

I've used dollar off coupons on sale stuff in the past but with the POS update maybe they nixed it or maybe it's just how the BF stuff is set up.

Honestly, I was only trying the coupon because it had a 11/30 expiration date, and when it didn't work, I was planning on calling PUR to get my points refunded. However, now that seems like an impossibility thanks to the employee using the coupon anyway. :bomb:

It might be because of the Black Friday pricing. I used a $20.00 off PUR coupon when Dragon's Crown was on sale a few weeks ago and it worked without issue. Also this was after the POS update.

My Gamestop was absolutely horrible. I got there around 12:30 just to see if they had Xenoblade, which they did. So I got in line, and while the line was intimidating it didn't seem long enough that I would spend forever waiting. I checked out at 2:20. I spent 1:50 waiting in the most abhorrently slow line I've ever experienced.

 

That much time might've been worth it for Xenoblade since it's so rare, but I question the sanity of people willing to wait that long just for B2G1 when the games were almost certainly going to be there in the afternoon. I bet Xenoblade would've been there in the afternoon but I wasn't up to taking chances.

Sorry but I doubt Xenoblade is that rare after the reprint, more like its only sold at one chain store. Every store here still has them in stock according to the store locator, though this might be regional, there aren't too many people here who like RPG games, especially for a dead system like the Wii, and no one is buying Wii U's here. I wouldn't be surprised if other stores are sold out though. It was cheaper to buy it online with CAG16 and SAVER than going to the store. Original copies might be rare but other than the case I don't know if there is a way to tell an original from the reprint version. However for those like me who just want to play the game, this works out in our favor as paying $33 for this game with CAG16 and SAVER is way cheaper than the $50 launch price.

 

Unless you had the original and flipped it for a profit, then rebought the reprint version now for the cheaper price. That would have been the ideal way to go on this.

If you ONLY wanted that one game, I can't see only getting it alone.  I got it, MPT, and pokemon Y for $26 a piece, that's after tax (free ship) Granted their website was shite for over an hour (when it was getting hammered when the sale just started last night that is), but point is I still paid less for all three games, and didn't even bother with CAG 16 or Saver since they were offering free ship to begin with...

Went into a GS and Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade didn't ring up as B2G1. Was told they don't work because they're already on sale. Is that correct? Thinking of going to another store down the street to either get a free game or return the two I bought. Sorry if already answered.

Picked up an Xbox 360 Holiday bundle and Splinter Cell/Battlefield 4. Finally able to play all these games that I have missed the past few years. Also, apparently they had quite a bit of Xbox Ones available, but sold out of PS4s. Not sure if most GS are like that.

If anyone has a Hastings nearby, they are offering $50 for a few games. I picked up 3 copies of BF4, Killzone SF, and AC4 for $150. Took them straight over to Hastings and got $250 store credit.

Uh...NO! GS's BF ad says "Buy 2 Get 1 Free On Any Pre-Owned Products" on the same page where it lists MPT and Xenoblade as "Collectible & Rare Pre-Owned Games".

 

There is seriously no reason they shouldn't be part of the B2G1.

I picked up Zombie U and had some other crap just to get the B2G1.  Wouldn't ring up that way.. manager said it wouldn't stack with the black friday pricing.  Didn't want the other crap anyways, so left with Zombie U for 10 bucks.

Yes. This is true. Xenoblade and Metroid Prime do not count towards the B2G1 preowned. It just doesn't happen in the system. It could be because it is already on a great sale.. Almost $30 off.. Besides that point. In fine print under the B2G1 offer it does say "Cannot be combined with any other offer." This already is its own promotion. The Buy 2 Get One Free pre-Owned games are only for things that are not their own offer already. (Ex: Xenoblade/ Metroid) I tried to ring up some customers and it wouldnt go through then we saw the fine print. Sorry guys.

 

 

 

-- Side question. Has anyone been able to take advantage of the "Free Digital code with purchase of Starcraft II Heart of the Storm, Wings of Liberty or World of Warcraft Mists of Pandora." Offer?

This one:

Spoiler

 

I tried ringing some customers up for this promotion and the card just wouldn't go through. Another customer purchased Starcraft II Heart of the Swarm and I did check on the receipt to see if the code was there but, nothing.


These were made by me:  :xb1:  :ps4:   :vita:
Thank you CheapyD for implementing them.

Before I pull the trigger, what the better game - BF4 for $25 or COD Ghost for $40?

 

Im planning on eventually getting a PS4 around Xmas time so will eventually upgrade for $10 - but I am wondering which is better to play now.  $15 is a big difference!

Went to ask about the free CoD: Ghosts when I trade in my old iPhone 4s that's just lying around, the employee had no clue about that deal... Only wanted it if it was free, wasn't going to pay money for it lol. Has anyone tried to trade in their htc one/iphone 4s and ask about the free call of duty?
