No offense, but that's why you don't trade in 12 copies of the same game to one store. I used to get questionable looks when I'd have 2 of the same game, and that made me feel like I was pushing it. Trying to unload 12 is just asking for trouble. If you don't want to get caught, next time try to be a little more discreet.


Thing is that at the time they had a promotion going on that when you traded like 5 or more games you got like 50% extra credit or something crazy like that. Flipping them 1 or 2 at a time would result in a loss, flipping all at once meant as I said a $100-$200 profit and a $20 PSN card.

It was their mistake. Seems rather silly to bar a customer for their own stupidity. Seems like the wrong way to keep business. But then again, I spose they could care less so long as they rake in cash hand-over-fist.


Kind of what I thought.....as I said over the years I had spent $1,000s at their store and now they ban me meaning I do not really shop with them anymore. I spent the credit I made mostly on console point cards and moved on. The money they lost was their own stupid mistake and they already have lost even more money by banning me.

Mafia 2, Enslaved, and The Saboteur (all PS3) for $42.95 in credit. 3 games I have had my eye on, and gamestop credit I needed to use = :D

Thanks OP!

Ah, well, at least that makes sense. You had to know you were pushing it though, haha. Come on. That's pretty ballsy, especially once you show them how you're screwing them over. It shouldn't have been a total shock that you pissed somebody off.

Right, but from their perspective, you're a shady customer (or even a "dealer"). For all they know, you only buy from them when you can turn around and make a profit. They decided they would rather lose your business. Not defending Gamestop here. Just saying it's not really surprising.

Hehe O I knew I was pushing it and risking them reporting me but as I said I figured making almost $200 in credit and a $20 PSN card was worth it. As I said I only shopped there once or twice a year during the b2G1 sales and even then id play like a $500 order and end up returning $300 of it because it came in shit condition. Totally worth the ban.

Can someone refresh my memory? Does AC: Brotherhood require a one time use code for online multiplayer?

Return them at your local store if the stuff you want online is available. It's the same process if you want to swap out cases or crappy disks.

I went with Destroy All Humans: Path of Furon (360), Batman AA GOTY (PS3), and Yogi Bear (Wii). I didn't even know DAH existed. I enjoyed the PS2 games so this was a nice surprised. As for Yogi, what can I say? I'm a sucker for side scrollers.

According to many CAGs, GameStop is the worst B&M retailer of the year! Seriously? I guess your local Wal-Mart and Best Buy have deals like these all the time.

I'm wanting to pull the trigger but can't seem to bring myself to do it with the huge backlog of games. I think I'll just wait. :)

Nope, no code required. There's not even an instruction manual. It's more like a 2-3 page insert, so don't worry if that isn't included.

I completely agree with this. Bought 4 Splinter Cells not too long ago, Double Agent and the original 3. Only Double Agent came with original box and instructions. The other 3, generic custom cases and no instructions.

Why would you do that with the SC HD Trilogy coming out in a few months?

Unless it's not easy to swap them out or they don't have them...


This, plus you don't know if the employee will cooperate. I haven't had much trouble in the past which is good, but ya never know.

The biggest thing keeping me away is what do they have that I need? The flood of sales elsewhere has kept my backlog well stocked with new games at good prices, making the used market less useful to me. There's a thought, is the sale good on controllers? I need a new DS3 and could use a nav controller if I ever get the sharpshooter.

Their website is damn slow... I actually wanted to order a few things this time too but it'll take forever to even find anything at this rate.

Dang it's not even loading for me now. That really helped me officially decide on not to get anything.

I assume someone must have posted this sale on slickdeals or something

ebgames.com always works when gamestop.com is getting slammed
