In Topic: $5 Off at GameStop by Playing Lionheart Tactics for Free

Yesterday, 10:45 PM

an error message popped up today. i got it yesterday. how long am i suppose to wait? or is it the end for my IP address?

How late did you get it yesterday? If you did it at night, you probably will be able to get more after 24 hours (later tonight). Same thing happened to me and it was fine after I waited.

I'm not defending gamestop but people who think they're doing some heroic deed by fighting the evil corporation by abusing some 5 dollar coupon is laughable,you aren't doing shit but give that evil place more business and making yourself look like a damn hypocrite for shopping there.

That's true. Unless you get a bunch of those XBL $5 codes for free then they do lose money. But except for that, they do get revenue from this coupon being used. I don't understand why people would go there just to screw them over. I abuse deals for my own good, and don't really care if it affects Gamestop positively or negatively. If they are making money off of me, so be it, we can all be happy from this promotion. If they are losing money, it doesn't affect me so it doesn't matter. But you're right, people using these just to fight the evil corporation haven't done the math.

It gives that error after doing it on the same device about 4 times.

 

Picked up a $5 Bandfuse; for the cost, it's worth it just for the 3.5mm extension cable and 360 3.5mm adapter alone.  Looks like a pretty good game if you've got an electric guitar sitting around doing nothing anyways.

 

Then, on my way out of that store, I finally spotted a $10 Yoshi eShop card! I had to turn around and ask if it would be ok to use another coupon that I had for it.  He gave the getting-all-too-familiar "not sure it'll work on that, but we can try" line, to which I replied:

 

...ICHIRO, TAKE NOTES...THIS IS HOW NOT TO BE A COMPLETE DOUCHEBAG ARSEHOLE TO OTHER HUMANS...

 

"oh, right...well, if we can try, that would be good..."

 

Notice I refrained from spitting the words:

 

WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT MAY NOT WORK!??!! INFERIOR EMPLOYEE,  IT DOESN'T SAY ANYWHERE ON THE PORTION OF THIS FINE PRINT THAT I DIDN'T CUT OFF FROM THE PAGE THAT IT WON'T WORK ON ANYTHING I WANT IT TO!!!!!"

 

Remember, kids...you can do things the nice and easy way, or the Ichiro way.

 

I also went to two other GS's, and got a code for 3DS Sakura Samurai ($1.99 after cpn), and another $10 eShop card....now I can justify paying $15 ($7.50) for Shovel Knight.

Oh so you DID use MULTIPLE coupons even though it clearly says "ONE PER CUSTOMER"? And you had no shame in using multiple coupons in one trip? Aren't you a bit of a hypocrite after all that hate? I thought people like you wanted everyone to follow the exact fine print so that Gamestop doesn't stop doing these promotions? If you're not going to follow the fine print, why even have it there? It probably doesn't matter if I cut it off right? Oh wait, I forgot, that's so shady cutting off the fine print. But if you don't cut it off, it doesn't matter whether you follow it or not, right? You sir are a hypocrite. Just admit that you have joined the so called "scamming" of Gamestop.

That's the same excuse people have been saying here for years to clear thier conscious about scamming gamestop.

Clear our conscious? Don't worry bro, I'm not feeling bad AT ALL about using multiple coupons. I don't need to justify it to anyone to make myself feel/look better. Only reason we are explaining our actions is because some people are hypocrites that defend a shady store like Gamestop, yet get upset about what customers do.

Fuck Gamestop though, I hate them and their employees. They're are the absolute worst and are the real scammers.

I hate Gamestop as a company, but most of the employees have been cool. But it's funny how people are on their high horse about people abusing the coupon because of the "one per customer" rule, calling us immoral and shady, but they don't get angry at gamestop for false advertising when some managers that are assholes refuse to honor the "ANY purchase over $5" part of the coupon. So they make you show up thinking you can buy a gift card using the coupon, then tell you that you can't, and you either end up paying full price or leave without buying, making it a waste of time and gas. We as customers must follow the fine print, but Gamestop managers should be allowed to inconsistently change their end of the deal by refusing the coupons to be used on gift cards even though it should be ANY purchase? That's not shady, being deceptive to bring in customers to their stores? Pretty hypocritical if you ask me.

And why is it such a big deal cutting off the fine print? What if I just take the barcode? Does that make it ok? These employees should be trained and informed by corporate about which deals/coupons are currently going on instead of being informed by a CUSTOMER. They are professionals after all right? But no, it seems like they have a very inconsistent customer service system.
