no more trades at GS for me. One GS employee denied my trades because corporate flagged my account. I asked for a number so I can speak with someone about it.
While on the way home, decided to go cancel some pre orders at another GS. I only did it because the guy who rung me up seemed cool at first, but he might have had something to do with my account being flagged(possibly called someone higher up to track my account?).
While I was there, I met the guy I was told to call. He was part of loss prevention. He kindly told me they can no longer accept my trades because I've traded multiple copies over many stores in the area(only one store let me trade multiple copies during one transaction, which I did twice). He said I'm free to come in and purchase stuff, but no more trading. I was sorta ok with it, I didn't give him a problem, shook his hand, and looked around the store. As I left, a different employee kinda gave me a dirty look
I still have the guys number, maybe I'll call sometime about clarification on the ban length(I'm guessing its permanent), and if theres a way I can have it lifted(bring a receipt saying I bought them?)
I haven't been flipping that long, but I did know you can get banned at BB for trading multiple copies. I was pretty careful with that, but getting banned at GS took me by suprise. I read posts where people said GS doesn't really monitor trades, but I found out they do.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
I had them say i couldn't trade OR purchase stuff from Gamestop anymore because corporate was looking into my trading history. The employee there also said something about loss prevention was wondering how i was getting all the stuff i trade in. This started apparantly because i had a bunch of headsets from the 3 month xbox live starter kits i had traded in. I do trade in alot of games to the Gamestops in my area when we find out about these clearances at other stores and have been for at least 4-5 years (no multiples)
I called them out on it and left the store pissed. I went to the next Gamestop and tried to trade in some games. Traded in 6 games, no problem. Bought some PS3 games with the coupon, no problem. Went to about 3 or 4 other gamestops just to see if they would give me the same grief as the first.
Seems like the only store who was being a bitch was the first one so i just won't be buying anything from that store anymore.
I'm almost tempted to contact Gamestop corporate about this cause it just seems like the one store is blowing smoke up my ass.
