Just checked my e-mail and no luck. Right now I am 0-200 for these YMMV coupons from BB.

Exactly. I can't remember the last time they retroactively fixed a glitch that cost them a lot of money.

So all of your orders should be fine.

I agree. I placed a bunch of orders and 80% of them have shipped out already.

 

It baffles me that BB honored the B1G1 glitch that happened with the GTAV pre-orders.

Posted by redreflect on 11 April 2014 - 09:09 PM

I stopped by my local Wal-Mart and asked the electronics guy if he knew if they had any in the back by chance since there weren't any in the display.

 

His response was, "Uh, what? I've never even heard of that movie!"

#11643499 Playstation Plus 12 months for $35

Posted by redreflect on 26 March 2014 - 07:55 PM

My problem with PS Plus is that I've bought too many cards when they go on sale for like $30-$35. I started back in 2012 and I think my membership is good until 2016. I think I have a problem...

Thank you for posting this BTG.




#11642206 GoHastings Deals Thread - Thurs. Only - Beyond: Two Souls - PS3 - Used -...

Posted by redreflect on 26 March 2014 - 10:24 AM

Fair warning to everyone - I've seen the price of just about every CD and major DVD in my wish list radically jump up as of this morning.

I didn't see it coming that fast or I would have bought a lot more items earlier, but the jump is so bad that unless they come down in price in time I can't see myself buying much from them - 40% off or not. The jumps are that high.

This was not the start to the morning I wanted. :(


Perhaps they are preparing for a massive 70% off sale? *fingers crossed* ;)

I don't even read the BB weekly ad postings for the deals anymore, I read them strictly to see how Twitter managed to steal it.

#11585124 Capcom Store Spring Clearance 3/5 - 3/23

Posted by redreflect on 06 March 2014 - 12:42 AM

Digital River. No thanks. Squenix, Namco Bandai and Capcom need to find a more reliable shipping/processing service.

Was interested in this until I saw it was Digital River. Will never order another thing from them. I provided the tracking number when I returned a game and they said they never received it... even though tracking confirmed it had been delivered to them.


#11576656 Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate Vita/3DS ($19.99 / $15.99 GCU) at...

Posted by redreflect on 03 March 2014 - 05:04 PM

Am I the only one that thinks a bit silly to insert the GCU price into opening posts and even thread titles? I assume most competent people know how to subtract 20% from a price. Anywho, I digress.

 

Tempted to grab this at $20 but I've heard/read rumblings that it's simply not very good.

I put the GCU part in the title because it seemed to be standard. I don't think it hurts anything, it just saves you time if you're a GCU member from trying to calculate the price in your head -- and I am all about efficiency. 

 

I've also heard the same about the game, so I actually didn't place my order until after I did this thread. I figure that worst case scenario is that I can play it a bit, get the trophies, and then sell it for around $10 after I'm done.




#11514896 GoHastings Deals Thread - Thurs. Only - Beyond: Two Souls - PS3 - Used -...

Posted by redreflect on 10 February 2014 - 02:07 PM

Are you saying you think that's how they sent it? Grabbed a torn bubble mailer and put your book in it?

No, kodave hit it on the head with his response. I seriously doubt that's how they packaged it initially. That is how it arrived though and there was damage to the graphic novel. I had a second one (another book order) from them that arrived after that one and it looked just as bad. From what I've read in this thread it's a common occurrence.

 

Post it to their Facebook page. They don't believe there is actually a problem with their packaging, but the proof says otherwise.

I'm going to post it to their page sometime today.

 

EDIT: Posted it to their wall today.

 

I fail to see the problem here. So the packaging is torn.. if the item is fine inside which seems to be the way from the pic who cares? I understand the implications though if it happened to this maybe it will happen to something else and that item get destroyed. Well if it does then call them and they will replace it lol. I've never had an issue with them other than questionably quality of "used" books. But then thats only because I'm picky about folding the cover.

It might not have been such a big deal if there wasn't partial damage to the spine/cover of the graphic novel. The problem with the "if it's damaged then just call them and they'll replace it" mentality is:

1) I have had to do that before with previous game purchases in the past and they have been unable to replace it -- they just gave me a refund instead. I don't want a refund, I want the graphic novel.

2) That means every time there is a damage to a book/graphic novel because of poor packaging on their end I would have to return it, which means 7-10 business days of waiting... and that's for EVERY time there is damage due to poor packaging on their end.

3) By not saying anything, I'm letting them think this type of behavior is acceptable. It's not. It would be like if you ordered a computer from a company and when you receive the box it's torn open because of poor packaging (let's say they just wrapped it in plain brown wrapping paper and sent it that way without protection, for argument's sake). And yes I realize a computer is worth more but the point is that even if there wasn't any damage to the actual computer, you probably wouldn't be happy about how it was packaged and arrived.
