Went to the Brentwood Best Buy yesterday to do a few trade ins and man, what happened? Had to take the trade ins to customer service and they basically didn't know what to do. Meanwhile I was in a line for people trying to check out, trade in games and to have Geek Squad look at their computer. I was there 45 minutes to trade in 3 games. Unreal.

I've always had problems with trade ins at that store.  They either didn't know how to apply the 10% Gamer's club bonus, didn't have anyone who could do trade ins (wtf), or experienced something similar to what you had happen.

 

I'm sticking to Gamestop unfortunately unless the offers are too good to be true.

Yeah, they forgot to add my 10% but after being there for over an hour it wasn't worth going back over with them sadly for $3.60

BB is getting read of the dedicated gaming section counters and making everyone go t customer service to trade anything in, even for phones or whatever. No more dedicated gaming staff either I think.

Does anyone n the STL area know of any casual Magic Gatherings (wow pun not originally intended). I am not overly experienced and did not even understand some of the stipulations for the tournament listed above. I want to learn, get better, and just have fun. (preferably to the eastern side of STL.... )

Bodach's Games in Arnold will draft every other Tuesday and the non-draft weeks people will be there just playing.

If you want help learning Magic I'm more than willing to play over XBL with Duels of the Planeswalkers so you can learn and get comfortable enough to eventually go to a Friday Night Magic event.

FYI sometime in either May or June the Fenton GS is going to triple it's square footage (from 800 to 2400) as Oreck is closing and GS is buying out their space and breaking the walls down.


This fell through so no expansion to the Fenton GS.

What the hell did they do? Fuck

 

Greetings from the Amazon Associates Program.

 

We are writing from the Amazon Associates Program to notify you that your Associates account will be closed and your Amazon Services LLC Associates Program Operating Agreement will be terminated effective August 27, 2013. This is a direct result of the unconstitutional Missouri state tax collection legislation passed by the state legislature and signed by Governor Nixon on July 5, 2013, with an effective date of August 28, 2013. As a result, we will no longer pay any advertising fees for customers referred to an Amazon Site after August 27 nor will we accept new applications for the Associates Program from Missouri residents.

 

Please be assured that all qualifying advertising fees earned prior to August 28, 2013 will be processed and paid in full in accordance with your regular advertising fee schedule. Based on your account closure date of August 27, 2013, any final payments will be paid by October 31, 2013.

 

While we oppose this unconstitutional state legislation, we strongly support the federal Marketplace Fairness Act now pending before Congress. Congressional legislation is the only way to create a simplified, constitutional framework to resolve interstate sales tax issues and it would allow us to re-open our Associates program to Missouri residents.

 

We thank you for being part of the Amazon Associates Program, and look forward to re-opening our program when Congress passes the Marketplace Fairness Act.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

The Amazon Associates Team

Does this mean digital codes (XBL, PSN, etc.) will be taxed now? What about Gamestop store credit?

 

Also I'm an individual seller; will I still be able to sell on Amazon?

I have no idea... I'm having trouble finding the bill. What I do know is that all Missouri based blogs basically lost half of their potential income sources. If Cheapy was based in Missouri, he'd be totally screwed.

 

I plan on calling my State Rep in the morning and ask her what the hell they were thinking.

No, it has absolutely nothing to do with that.

 

It has to do with people making money off of affiliate links, or people who would get money by sending people to Amazon.

 

As far as the actual bill itself, this is the first I've heard of it.

It got buried into a random bill and signed by Nixon. It will tax stuff bought online, so it probably would impact Steam and PSN.

This reads to me that it is taxing those affiliate referrals now.  Not online purchases entirely.  I guess we'll see on August 28th...

Fenton GS will have midnight releases every Monday except for Sept. 2 for the next 5 weeks:

Aug. 19- SR, SC, Bureau
Aug. 26- Madden, Japanese games
Sept. 16- GTA V

 

Edit: NHL midnight most likely canceled as the store manager, who is also an area manager & a Blues season ticket holder, may end up promoted to another state so that will end that.

Yeah, I think you're right. That actually makes me more upset since Missouri is essentially just targeting one group of people who make money on the internet.

So I walked into the St. Peters Walmart store. Apparantly they are selling the Injustice: Gods Among Us COLLECTOR'S EDITION for $59.96 (it's only $10 more than than the game alone). Multiple copies of both Xbox 360 and PS3.

 

Is it worth it for the statue/DLC goodies if I already own the game?

Maybe if you sell the game and keep the goodies you'd be out like $30 I guess.

If people are curious most of the south county-ish GS locations are around 200 or more preorders for GTA V while Fenton is over 500 & counting. So expect Fenton to be slammed if you're going to trade, etc. there next week.

The OfficeMax in Arnold is closing and they have some external Hard Drives for 40% off. Might be useful for the Wii U, Xbox One or Playstation 4. I thought about picking one up, but by the time I would need one they might already be faster and cheaper.

Ramen keep us informed if you would. I need a larger one (have a 250GB right now) and wouldn't mind getting a bigger one cheap. I can't get out there until Wednesday night.

Their last day is Saturday September 28th and they do markdowns on Thursdays. They seem to knock down prices by 10% every Thursday.

 

It also looks like area GameStops have gotten new shipments of the PC Version of Final Fantasy XIV. It looks like I'll actually be able to pick it up tomorrow.
