Dangerous times ahead - GoHastings' Mix & Match Used Sale just went live.

Buy 2 Used Books, CDs, DVDs & Games, Get the 3rd for $1

Promo Code is MM123

Excludes Blu-Ray, Previously Viewed Movies, Previously Viewed Games & Game Accessories. $1 item of equal or lesser value.

Standard shipping is $2.28 per item - this includes your $1 game.

Codes are NOT stackable. One code per transaction.

As noted about, Previously Viewed titles do not qualify for this offer.

Though experiences vary, most titles come complete. Some even arrive new, with DLC codes intact. Be sure to read the item description.

If any of your B2 items is canceled - which does happen - you will still get your $1 item for $1. If your $1 item is canceled, you will need to call GoHastings customer service for positive resolution.

RE: Customer Service: do not bother emailing GoHastings.com - they will just direct you to call the CSR.

Has anybody ever ordered used DVDs from here? I know their games are usually in pretty good shape but I wasn't sure about their DVDs

The one DVD I ordered from them didn't play. Got a little past the legal screens and then could never get past it. Unfortunately, I didn't try to watch the movie til months after I received it, so I figured there was no chance of a return.

There is alot of good stuff but the search results are a bit misleading. Goldeneye Collector's Edition on Wii came up ridiculously low, likke $7.xx but when you click on the link, it's actually the DS version that sells for that much.

Buy 2 Used, Get 3rd for $1, and be out some money when you ship them all back because they look like they went through a wood chipper!

Is this your experience or are you just saying this because they are used?


And dear Lord, shipping is making me reconsider.

some people swear by Gohastings though. I've ordered about 10 games and 8 went back, the other 2 are at least playable but the discs are chipped and the cases are garbage. I don't know if they don't have any standards or they just don't look at the games. To me all of them looked like some 5 year olds used them for frisbee and the dog intercepted it and buried it to be found years later and traded in.

I always check the shit I buy from a site long before the return period is over with, so I know I can at least get it swapped out or returned and I'm out nothing usually.

But I'm shocked that this thread doesn't have the usual 90% complaining about GH posts as of yet.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Is there a difference between their "Previously viewed" and "Used" games?

I know previously viewed means they were rentals, but do they usually come in the original case and what not? Never used GH before, so just a bit curious.

Previously viewed probably don't work on this sale anyway, at least they usually don't.

Just to put in my 2c every game I've received from them has been mint. I've always bought major titles for ps3 that have come out relatively recently though, the older the games are the more likely they are to be incomplete or dinged up (just like GS).

Meh...Shipping makes it really not worth it for the titles I'm looking for, anyways.

I get a game for $1 and then have to pay it's cost in shipping. lol

thanks for the update op!

to those of you who havent used gohastings before, their used games are almost ALWAYS in near perfect condition. also, out of the 10+ i have ordered from them, every single one has had its original case and a booklet. shipping to me (nc) normally takes about 3 or 4 days as well.

really fantastic site, definitely recommend

$26 for all or $26 each?

Also if they are in crappy condition, can I return them to a store location.

Picked up a few Wii games of similar pricing that averages out to ~$9.78 each which is pretty good for those particular games... Now its just a matter of if they'll all ship or if GoHastings will pull one of their famous "cancellation of $1 item but still charge you for the other full priced games" moves.

I'm done with buying games for a long time, lol. I always buy games from them. I'll probably pick up Kinect once I can pick it up for around $60.

In for 3 360 games for $25 shipped. I put the same order in twice because I plan on flipping the games up by me.

If all goes according to plan, my $50 investment will turn in to $140. Mwahahahah

Yeah, I don't know, I guess you just had some bad luck. I've ordered a crapload of games (about 50) from them and 95% came mint and complete...Never really had to return a game.

goHastings isn't perfect: They occasionally cancel orders and sometimes send the wrong items out, plus their account system is a little cumbersome, but they're still much better than Gamestop.

Well, it works the other way too. If they cancel one of the non-$1 items, you basically get a B1G1. It's happened to me. To up your chances, you could try your best to make sure the $1 game is something more abundant.

Figured I'd run to the B&M Hastings, to maybe save on some shipping....little did I know all of their games were 200%+ more expensive than on their website.

What a waste of an afternoon.
