When a surly GS employee suggested I would have to pay the $5 difference to exchange my Mass Effect 2 I informed them that I could just as easily buy the preowned copy in the store and then return my mail order copy..its not like they differentiate whether they have case/manual when they sell them. She promptly just swapped the game for me w/o ringing it through, grumbling the whole while.


Is this her?

If I wanted to exchange a game, how would it work? Say I bought a $50 USED game online, on the receipt the price shows up as the B2G1 price. So if I wanna get a different $55 USED game at GS, I would have to pay the difference right? Would it be the $5 difference or the difference between the B2G1 price?

I don't think you can exchange games from a B2G1F willy-nilly.

I have in the past B2G1F brought in games that I paid the discounted price as long as instore they have that game for the original price it still was a fair trade. They still sell the game that you return for the $55 in their store.

Got my games yesterday from the B2G1; LBP2, Tales of Vesparia, and Resonance of Fate all in original cases with instructions condition on ToV and RoF light scratches installed fine however. :)

Pretty sure it ends tomorrow night, since tomorrow is the last day in Feb, and the code is called FEB2G1. I gotta go to GS tomorrow and trade in Blops so I can get in on some stuff :bomb:

Could I go into a gamestop location and ask for them to give me the manual and actual case if I show them my receipt ?

As stated before all my three games came with no manuals and cheap cases


Yes, if you ask them they should give it to you. I think that it is corporate policy in fact.

Well I received 6 of my games today any 3 were complete (that seems to be about right now adays) 2 came in black cases (one smashed up) and the other in a green one with no artwork. All the other 3 had no manuals. Not that upset since I paid next to nothing for them. I do plan on ordering some new green cases from Amazon though since I have a bunch of games with bad cases.

While on a road trip today, I found a GS that had Yakuza 2 in stock, swapped in store for a complete copy. So happy I jumped on this when everything was stacking.

The policy on the online receipt states that "actual store policy may vary", so I guess if you get a dick manager/employee they could hassle you about it.

I didn't wanna have to read through this whole topic, but I noticed they're charging full tax on the order BEFORE the discount. Will it automatically adjust after the order is placed?

Has this happened to anyone before? I bought 2 identical orders w/ different email addresses. They shipped the first, and part of the second (tracking # is dead though). Could it be because of the BlOps 1 copy limit?

Any advice on how to proceed?

Second order shows:
[FONT="]DANCE CENTRAL - Xbox 360 $60.46[/FONT]
Shipped (2)

[FONT="]CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS - Xbox 360 $0.00
Backordered N/A

It just looks like they'll ship you Black Ops at a later date. I had something similar happen to me with other games and I just had to wait an extra 3 days.

Bought Kinect Sports, Dance Central, and Black Ops. They are all scratched up. Black Ops I am going to return to the store next to my house and the other two I have asked for replacements since no store within 25 miles has them. Wait a pain, oh well.

got my 3 today, 2 in mint, 1 beat to hell, but all discs worked. The case looked as if someone chewed it up. Worst I have ever seen. Looked online for a store near me and took it in and they gave me what looked to be a brand new copy, even game me the disc which looked absolutely untouched compared to the scratches on the one I had. Worked out great.

You guys are really lucky - I've had to return quite a few bad Gamecube/360 games to my local stores and most of 'em really don't like it. I often find myself rotating between the four local ones 'round here 'cause of it, and I can only imagine how half of the employees would react if I asked to switch out a box/case.

On another note, is it not possible for the Powerup Pro discount to stack with the feb2g1 code? They're not for me, at least.

Nope, shit, powerup doesn't even stack with cag16, you just get a point bonus and the edge card bonus, but the edge card stacks with cag16, which makes no sense at all, I mean you would think the card you pay for would stack, not just the free one, jeez! This is a partial disaster but still better than nothing.

So I got Heavy Rain in this deal for 34.99. Can I go to a gamestop and get some money back for the deal since the price went down?

Just return it at a GameStop store. Take the money over to Walmart or Best Buy and buy it new for $29.99.
