Sounds to me like you didn't type your credit card information in correctly!

No, Gamestop literally sends these emails as an excuse to cancel orders. Or they're incapable of coming up with a template for price mistake cancellations.

FYI ... ENT20 (or 10AUTO) works for 250 GB XBOX HD ... LOL.

order before they catch on ... too bad I got mine already ...


ENT20 does work, comes out to $103.2 before tax... not as good as the 25off, but pretty good nonetheless.

Gah, they cancel my order but still count it as part of the "1 per household" limit. So I can't make a new order...

I got my 250GB HDD today. Returned it with my $129.99 receipt from the one I bought in store the day before the 25% off deal started.

$105.xx....crazy cheap.

Congratulations on getting the deal to go through but "crazy cheap"? Let's not get carried away. $105.xx is still overpriced, IMO.

Mines was canceled today. I got the BS email about my CC info having the wrong expiration date. Called them to update it and they said it would be fixed by the end of the day and then it was canceled.

and same here...... the website listed my local gamestop as having it in stock and of course they really didn't. I'm attempting to throw money at this company and they thwart me at every chance.

UPDATE: just got a response from customer service.

As great of a deal as this may seem to be it makes me wonder if the headache of having to deal with the online issues ordering crap was really worth it. The ONLY reason I got my order to go though was because I called CS and changed the credit card the order was charged against.

In light of the deal Dell is offering for Conviction I am canceling my order from GS, its just too much headache.

Coupon "SAVER" will give you free shipping on the order. I had a $10 promo code and used it too. Came out to $102.92 w/ tax.


Update*** When I went to the "My Account" section is shows that I was charged $100.57. So which one is it? It looks like when they broke down the original estimate they included the shipping in the taxes before they removed the shipping fee. If so, I got a sweet deal! Posted Image

I assume mine is cancelled, but I haven't received any email indicating such. When I view my account, is says it shipped (w/o tracking info) but the HD price and Disgaea 3's price have both been zero'd out.

This may be a dumb question, but how do you transfer from one HDD to another? I have a 60 GB right now.

All new 250GBs come with a special transfer cable. It's really simple, but will take a while (hours if you're full on your 60GB).

Yep, it comes with a special cable and a disc. One end of the cable goes into your new hard drive, the other end in the 360 (and the 360 has your old hard drive attached to it). insert disc and follow the on screen directions, I had a full 20 GB and it took like an hour and 15 min. After that, your old hard drive is blank and everything should be transferred to the new one.

With the new update, do you even need the transfer cable anymore or can you just transfer over everything with the flash/harddrive?

I agree, but pulled the trigger anyway...I could ship it elsewhere, but the hassle would cost more than the extra $5 or so in tax...

Question, what about any stuff that says it cannot be copied or move when trying to transfer it to a memory unit? More specifically in my case any Xbox 1 data on my hard drive. I just don't want to lose that Star Wars: KOTOR downloadable content I got since it's discontinued on live now I believe.

I'm trying the ENT20 trick. Came to $113 and some change after CA sales tax. Used free shipping.

We'll see if it actually goes through, I'd definitely love to score a 250gb replacement drive. I'm still working with a 20gb from back at launch... I've gotta say -that hurts. :(

I just checked mine and according to the site it has shipped with the ENT20 code. It has a weird tracking number though, makes me wonder if they sent it via ups or something instead of usps like last time. I pretty sure it was sent though since the same shipment had two other games in it, of which the code also gave 20% off of.:bouncy:

I'm upgrading for the second time, this time from a 60gb to a 250gb. I'm mainly getting it for convenience. If it wasn't for game installs I wouldn't even bother upgrading. With saves, dlc and other stuff I have on my 60gb I can only put 4 to 5 games on the drive at one time. Now I can just put a bunch on and not have to swap back and forth when the urge to play a short little game with a title that isn't on there.

Mines shows as shipped too. I also got the weird tracking #, copied it and pasted it in the tracking section of UPS.com and it sure was a UPS tracking #. Scheduled delivery date..April 13th! Got it for $100.57 with a $10 promo code that I had.

I think I'm making the upgrade to a 250 from a 120(bought in november of 09) so should be interested in selling.

so after having the order canceled and locked out of online ordering due to the limit 1 per house I try calling customer service like they suggest in their email to me.

I try the ENT20 code and the guy on the phone is like yeah you can't use that on a hard drive either.

I am envious of you people who got the deal to work.

no discounts for me I guess.
