Hastings B&M has 50% off all used wireless Xbox 360 controllers for today and tomorrow (9/7 to 9/8). Could be a good deal, even though I have 5 360 controllers. All different colors, even. ;p

I got Modern Warfare 2 for the 360 for $12 and got the cheap shipping. Yes, I'm a cheap-ass gamer...

As before, I am most excited for the book sale. As in, I'm really super excited.

Think I'm gonna wait for the 25% deal. Question: does gohastings used games come with the original case?

In store they do. We didn't accept games without cases. The booklets may not be there but you had to have the case. I don't know about online, though.

Read the first post of the thread. There is a FAQ. Welcome to CAG.

I've got 15-20 books lined up again. My mail carrier will continue to be unhappy.

Hey guys, looks like Hastings changed the upcoming deals a bit. The images linked on the last page are different than before: The book sale is now only 30% off, DVDs are 30% off, Blus are 20% off. Costumes and games are the same.

Thanks for the replies, guess it's a roll of dice.

Damn it. That is disappoint.

Its like someone comes up with a good sales percentage and then before it launches, someone higher up is like "eh... not quite" and changes it.

Wow, most hardcover books on my wishlist that were $3.49 to ~$5 are now all over $8 overnight. With next week's sale only being 30% off, no way I'm ordering any of these now. Damn you Hastings.

Yeah. I was going to order some guides but they raised the prices 2 nights ago. I"ll just wait for the next 40% off sale. I'm hoping that the prices go back to "normal".

I know people always bitch about price hiking prior to video game sales, but there is always a lot of evidence to the contrary. But this was a bit much with the hardcover books. It wasn't just some hardcover books, and other books didn't decrease in price... All my hardcovers shot up so there are no real deals to be had. I think the only thing staying low in price are some paperback graphic novels I'm watching. Hastings is a business and it has a right to charge whatever they want and raise prices, but this seems rather lame.

The video games on my watch list seem to have stayed the same, and actually some DVDs went down in price so I ordered them with this shipping code because they'd be cheaper than with 30% off. But I guess Hastings figured they were losing money on shipping many of us hardcover books for ~$2 total. :(

The B&M stores are the ones that take in the used product and they are also the ones that ship out a most of the used product. Assuming that all of the stores are abiding by the same rules, then you should get a case at the very least. The store that I know of did not accept games unless the disc looked reasonable (could be buffed to eliminate the scratches) and the game had a case and booklet, but it appears that some stores are not as strict about the quality of trade-ins as others are.

So you are correct that it is a roll of the dice, but you are at least guaranteed a case with the game. If you have a B&M store nearby that may be your best bet for getting a case and manual. As a side note, when shipping the games out, the clerks will check the games to ensure that they are not excessively scratched before they send them out. So at least you don't have to worry too much about getting a game that is beyond playable.

Not just hardcovers, ALL used book prices went up. I had about 6 books in my wish list that were 3.49, now the lowest price in my wishlist is is 4.25 and most of the books in my wishlist (old paperbacks) are 6.99 and up. Pretty bummed about that.

Got my first GoHastings order earlier in the week (hectic week) and I was less than happy. I ordered Crisis Core and Metal Gear Ac!d. I received Final Fantasy for PSP and the MGA I ordered was missing the manual (damn, but meh) and more importantly, it looks like somebody wiped off a dirty counter with the UMD.

Prepping to buy some stuff on goHastings but a book I want to get has 2 variations, UK-A and UK-B format, what's the difference?
Yup

I think it's the size. UK-A is a small-sized mass market paperback, and UK-B is more along the lines of a softcover trade paperback. UK-C is the biggest.

Of all the games I've bought from them, the PSP games always seem to be in worse condition.

Also, $34.86 for Spider-Man Edge of Time (on XB360) is pretty decent.

Updated the OP. Looks like they took the Blu-ray discount out all together. Grabbed a couple of DVDs for some family members. Don't think I'll be bothering with many if any books or games, but we'll see as the week progresses.
