@DarkRider23

Instead of flipping and worrying about extra cash why not work at something that can push either your education or future occupation further. I happily traded a job with extensive overtime and driving compensation for a job in a lab at school. I'm a 4th year Earth and Enviromental Studies major. I only make $10 an hour and not even 40 hrs a week, but I get to use a GC-MS everyday and work with some pretty educated individuals. I have to wake up at early every morning and am tired every night, but I'm working towards a senior thesis and eventually going into a PhD program.


Because I don't have the experience for that yet? I just finished my 2nd year in college and most of my professors wouldn't even think of letting anyone be a lab assistant until you are at least a junior. I'm also pretty sure my job at a local laboratory over the summer helped my resume substantially, so it's not like I'm sitting on my computer 10 hours a day flipping and not doing anything for the long-term career I'm going to have.

I love how people assume flippers are just money hungry idiots because they CAN make good money. Just because I flip doesn't mean I'm an idiot. I don't spend hours, upon hours on my computer researching things. I put at most a couple of hours into flipping each day (I'll admit this has cut into my video gaming time a lot. I play video games maybe 1-2 times a week now) while having a good job (which I admit has nothing to do with my future career) and school. I would love to have my job back at the laboratory, but it was a short term job to begin with. Either way, that small-time experience isn't going to help me much. I don't plan on going for my PhD since I don't want to go back to school for 5 years, and getting accepted into a masters program is cake. I'm going to end up doing grunt work for my first 2-3 years of employment no matter what kind of experience I have anyway. Maybe if I have my masters I won't end up doing grunt work, but I plan on working for a couple of years before going back to school anyway.

I wouldn't have thought any DS games would come complete knowing how people trade in carts only in most cases I've seen. I was thinking of ordering Phoenix Wright but I immediately ignored it since it was a used DS game bought on the internet.

If you buy apparel of accessories (starting a $2.99) and use the code GOHASTSHIRT you get 50% off all your shipping costs.

Hastings is really strict when it comes to taking in trades. Everyone has to be complete/in good condition for them to take it, so DS games almost always come complete.

Was fully expecting just a cartridge with the first games I ordered. Was happy when the bubble mailers came weighing more than half an ounce.

Yet to receive an incomplete DS game (kinda) out of 5 ordered. Legacy of Y's didn't come with the soundtrack, had the cardboard slip on box though.

There was also another Phoenix Wright game I saw, but it wasn't triggering the promotion for some reason when it went live. Game wasn't there next morning though so assuming it ended up working. Had no idea the Ace Attorney games were somewhat rare :cry:. Got my DS a couple weeks ago thinking I'm going to play myself some SMT, Phoenix Wright and Pokemon. Haven't had much luck finding Ace Attorney games at bearable prices.

I took a chance on a USED copy of Pokemon Heart Gold and it came mostly complete. It had the case, box, and Poke Walker. The only things missing were the Poke Clip and instruction manual, which although I would have liked those to have come as well, I'm still fairly satisfied.

This is going to sound silly, but does anybody know what kind of solution I can MacGuyver so I can still use the Poke Walker? Maybe just purchase a cheap pedometer and use the clip from that?

From the games you mentioned, it sounds like your DS game collection is off to a great start. Since you mentioned Shin Megami Tensei and Pokemon already, I'm going to assume that you're an RPG fan. Other great DS RPG's are Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, The World Ends With You, Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy IV, Dragon Quest IX, Dragon Quest IV, and Dragon Quest V. A lot of the games by Atlus are great too. As for games similar to Capcom's Ace Attourney series (which is great and has clever writing), Hotel Dusk: Room 215 by Nintendo is fairly popular.


What kind of DS did you get? I still have a regular DS Lite that I got from the The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass Bundle. I'm tempted to get a DS-i or DS-i XL, but am thinking I might hold off until further details are announced on the 3DS.

I am only able to see regular price for the third item today in my cart. Looks like they are either done or having issues.

picked up green day rock band and dj hero for 360 and super mario galaxy 2 for wii. All came complete, and as a plus the code to download the green day songs to use with rock band 2 and 3 was not used.

So pumped since those codes sell for like 30 bucks on ebay.

Make sure all items are Used, as Previously Viewed items don't qualify for the sale.

On another point, a bit bummed that Blu-Ray discs are not included.

Hey I know "Previously Viewed" games don't count as used games, but are those ok to order? What the difference between them?

It is hit or miss. PV means it was a formal rental and USED is stuff traded in from people wanting to sell them. I tend to get better stuff with PV cause they seem to not check the USED items as much and sick of getting them filthy or bad shape.

This deal seems to be dead as a door knob... I just spent 45 mins shopping on this mad slow site for nothing i guess. It did save me $$$ and shelf space.

I would suggest you watch your order emails: one of my games got cancelled and I had to call to get something for that ... a $15 gift card will be mailed so I basically got my money back for that 1 game ... which sucks b/c it was worth more in cash. I guess I'll apply it to the next buy 2 get 1 sale, but be warned that it is doubtful they would have given me anything if I didn't call.

Deal is dead? It's not reflecting the $1 for the 3rd game anymore. I placed one order just minutes ago and tried for another, but no go on the 2nd...

p.s. the GOHASTSHIRT code doesn't save you money if you buying three games (the shirt is $3 and with 50% off shipping, you still paying $2 extra, of course, for some getting a $2 shirt is a deal :lol:)

Welp the temptation finally got to me. Just pulled the trigger on Red Dead Redemption, Arkham Asylum, and Fallout 3 for $72 shipped. I rented and beat Arkham, but absolutely loved it, and believe it or not haven't played Redemption or Fallout.

Between those 3, replaying my current library (I plan on going back through Gears 1 and 2, and eventually finishing off Galaxy 2), Metroid and Halo out in the next few months, not to mention NHL 2011... I think I'll survive another New Jersey winter haha.:cold:

FYI: :360: NBA 2K10 is back in stock for $12.50, with a Gazelle trade-in of $20. You can only place two at a time in your cart, so if you can find a third game in the ~$15 price range you will essentially be getting it for free. ;)

Why not get something a little more closer to Batman then get Fallout 3 as Fallout is going for under $10 used at gamestop? You could get more bang for your buck unless its the GOTY edition. My $.02.

Yeah the order i did earlier this week the $1 item got canceled saying out of stock which it has been instock the entire time on the website for a week now. They told me what am i complaining about they are refunding me the amount for the game. The point is it was worth it only if i got that one game for $1. This happened to me 2 other times in the past and 3rd times a charm. I think i will start passing on these deals. I can not deal with there bad CS again and get jipped. My 2 cents from past experience. Oh well to many great deals on other sites i find thanks to CAG! :)

Gohastings sucks man, its a crap shoot, some make out ok, but the majority fall into their bait and switch by cancelling whatever deal attracted you from buying from their site.

I guess I've been very lucky with them. I've ordered around 40 blu-rays and 12 games, this year, and everything has come in great condition and original packaging from goHastings.
