Snagging this from Slickdeals, but starting tomorrow, 5/4, a new coupon code will go live for 30% off previously played games at www.gohastings.com .

Code: HAST52

For those that haven't ordered used games off GoHastings before, the overall experience has been positive, with game cases sent with the game in most instances. Do it to it.

Here are some of my considerations:

(prices are under assumption of 3020% off)

Resonance of Fate (REG $41.78) $33.42 after coupon - assuming I can't find it at my local kmart

Heavy Rain (REG $38.48)$30.78 after coupon - better than Amazon by a few bucks

Uncharted 2 (REG $33.41) $26.73 after coupon - I do not know of any used copies for less than this

Star Ocean 4 (REG $42.64) $34.11 after coupon - if you'd rather not get the Zavii EU version

Bayonetta (REG $25.65) $20.52 after coupon - lowest price after kmart's $30 for new I believe

**Shipping is not considered for any of these


If it only works on PV games, this'll be useless then =l

The only bad thing about % sales from GoHastings now is that you're really only saving 20% on any amount over $11, since the discount on that first $11 really only nets you free shipping. I prefer the B2G1 for $1, but there could be some good finds with this.

Doesn't this ad say 30%? It's a bit hard to read, but it looks like the same code..

I see 30%, I don't see anything that says 20% for video games, graphic is also low res when zoomed in

Edit: Do they normally ship games without the manual or case? I don't see it in the listing anywhere for a particular game.

It's likely 30% for their retail stores and 20% online. They have done 30% off sales online from time to time though so who knows.

Actually this is live, and it is indeed taking off 30%! Order now before everything sells out!

edit: Okay I only tested it on DVD's but it doesn't seem to be working on games yet

Everything I've gotten in the past (like 10 games) have come with the original case and manual. I've had a nearly perfect experience with them so far. Only one time they sent me the first Lumines game instead of the second, but I dind't mind since I never played either. And one other time a case was kind of damaged. The games themselves have been perfect.

But as far as you know, they make no mentioning that the case or manual is required for sale?

It's possible the same code applies differently to different items. I do see what you're saying and we'll see how it applies come tomorrow when it goes live for video games.

Yes, you can apply the coupon now, but you won't see any effect on game items in your cart yet.

Nope I don't think there's any guarantee on their site or anything.

Does anyone know if this the coupon is multi-use? I'm wanting to place one order now before something sells out, but I know I'll find more to buy later.

BTW, blu-rays are not included.

The last time a 30% coupon was out, I used it for about 4 separate orders. YMM(possibly)V this time around but I doubt it.

Yeah, I'm assuming it is multi-use, but I was just wondering if someone had already tried.

I'm getting the discount on dvds and books, but not games.

Trying to figure out if its worth it, I like the prices on several of their used games, but between the iffyness of the manual / case situation and the hefty $2.28 per game ship charge, not sure if it's worth it.

Some of you should try to actually read the original post before making replies.

"Snagging this from Slickdeals, but starting tomorrow, 5/4, a new coupon code will go live for 20% off previously played games at www.gohastings.com ."

Except someone said the deal is already live, and that's why some of us tried it?

Yeah some of us jumped on early reports this was live as well as the the fact maybe some of us were trying to jump on it as not to miss out on a game we might really want. Perhaps posts indicating a deal is Live when it's actually not be removed to avoid confusion?
