I really shouldn't be on CAG as I have done too much damage, but you know what they say "If there is still room for damage to be done then what are you waiting for?" People say that, right? Right?

My 9 games shipped today! I'm happy to know that they did not get cancelled. Just in case you want to know which games I bought, I bought:

First order:
Final Fantasy XIII
Uncharted 1
Uncharted 2 (for $1)

Second order:
The Saboteur
Bulletstorm
Motorstorm (for $1)

Third order:
Uncharted 3 (I hope it has an unused online pass code!)
Red Dead Redemption
GOW III (for $1)

I read that many people who buy from goHastings get another product that they did not order or that they get very scratched CD's. Also I read that goHastings just give refunds but they don't give another copy of the game.
What happens then if I need to return one of the games that I bought during the B2G1 for $1 promotion? If I return the $1 they will refund me $1? or they will mess that up, charge me $7 (what the game cost), then refund me $1? Also, if the CD's are very scratched, but they work, Will it damage my PS3? I'm worry about it because I heard that when a CD is scratched, the console will try to read the disc many times which causes laser lens damage.

Thank you guys, and thank you for letting me know about this site too, I hope someone can answer my questions,

Ashlee.



Well, some people do get wrong items/unplayable/damaged but it is a very small percentage IMO compared to what they ship. If the $1 item is damaged it will be difficult since they will likely only refund you what you paid ($1) so I would make sure to talk to customer service and ask them for a credit when you reorder so you can reorder for the same price. They should do that in the situation.

As for the scratched discs, it depends on how scratched it is. The more damaged a disc is the harder it will to read and the more stress it will put on the machine. Sometimes PS3s shake when they are having a hard time reading discs so if that happens you might want to refund/reorder. Of course PS3s are pretty crappy overall. My first one shook/vibrated on every disc so I exchanged it. A year later and the exchanged one started doing it... on a brand new DVD. Good thing I sprung for an extended warranty.

Thank you cheapy fox, I will ask for a refund if that happens to my PS3. I usually play with the AC on (It is still hot here in CA), so I only hear the PS3 noices when the AC is off, thanks for the answer.

By the way I got an email from goHastings that says that there will be free shipping tomorrow ONLY on items in clearance. Not a very good offer I think :/

I'm so thankful I don't care about Marvel events, because getting all of these fucking Crises (pluralized on purpose) and Blackest Night books is becoming completely ridiculous.

Since shipping always kills deals at GoHastings for me it is somewhat of a good deal.

I picked up Space Bust-A-Move DS for $3.99 and Blur PS3 for $7.99. MGS Peace Walker PSP at $2.98 was sold out though... And there are some good prices on the PS3 Move titles ($5.99 for at least 3 of them). Too bad I bought those when they first came out for much more #-o.

Oops I meant that the COLUMBUS code will be available only today Monday (It is still Sunday in my head) haha, sorry :3 and yes it is actually good to use that code considering that the shipping price is a little more than $2 PER game :S

I recommend buying as of now if you want the free shipping because stuff tend to be out of Stock kind of fast.

That was the exact path I took. I was able to get most of the events for DC, but Brightest Day took weirdly long. The slippery slope is when you start picking up some of the lead-in books, and then you start wondering if "New 52" counts as an event and you need to get all of them... One day you wake up with a Mister Teriffic: Mind Games waiting on your front porch, and you realize you have taken things way too far.
Gy's game "All the Bad Parts" is available now on Xbox Live!

Peace Walker has been that price for months and I've never seen it in stock. It's never been on my wishlist, though, so it might have come in stock intermittently over that time period. But definitely wasn't in stock for this sale.

I don't see anything at all on Clearance worth getting that's in stock, unfortunately.

That's actually an awesome game, possibly my favorite racer of this generation. If they had it at that price for 360 I'd probably get it to replay it for the achievements.

Ended up making another order with the 10 off 40 since a couple of rare things came back in stock, so I couldn't resist.

Anyone having trouble after clicking on the "Place Order" button using Chrome? I always get an error message stating I should try making the order again. After a few minutes of that, I switched to IE and it worked fine.

I will ask for a refund if that happens to my PS3.

I ship for GoHastings. I rarely ever see scratched PS3 games, since blu-ray discs are more durable and scratch-resistant.

Bought a Peruvian Hat, seems any item on clearance can use the free shipping COLUMBUS code.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

Yeah the Trends section has some cool stuff that qualifies. Nothing in the electronics clearance seemed worth it though.

Just a heads up for everybody that Hastings is going to run a 250K likes sale soon.

They're only like 1000 likes away, so keep your eyes open.

Read the post...

The 40% off you mean? Well I'm confused cause it is the first time that I have bought in this site, so I don't know if that would be every thing 40% or just used stuff, etc. I hope someone can clear the 250k likes stuff.

Cheers!
