they lied to your face ! they just dont want to cancel it cause it hurts their numbers (which determines their hours). i even had a guy beg me not to cancel my bioshock bre order and he haggled me with a dlc code to try and get me to change my mind lmao. it was so sad smh


lol I would take the dlc and just cancel another day.

I've had random preorders tacked on a few times (as well as bullshit about "free" preorders) during my trades. Lucky for them I forgot to do the surveys in time. I do remember the people so I just have to make sure to cancel on the same person for their shady doings.

Do the preorders/cancellation/subscriptions directly affect employee hours (like the pos would dock them an hour a week for every cancellation) or are the store managers just not competent enough to figure out which employees actually know what they're doing and do it efficiently.

Yes as mentioned before, though the way the coupons would stack is $item-10%-$10-20%

Gamestop sure is efficient in handling the order of the discount stacking.

Figures. The next time I go to Gamestop I'll pressure them to cancel the pre-order. Damn, when I worked at Gamestop I never wasted time caring about someone cancelling a pre-order. I know its the way they have to get up in the company but seriously, no need to straight up lie to me about it. Happy I barely ever get people that do this at that Gamestop and others.

Just don't forget (as long as you care about not ruining someone else's day) to cancel it with the same guy who rang you up for it the first time.

This is SoulSilver Game Only?

If I trade it back to GameStop for more than I paid for it, what are my chances of being banned? lol


Awakening is getting a good deal on Amazon.

Correct, game only.

Can't comment on the flipping suggestion as it will just go into a flame war. However, I can say that I remember a few being banned for it.

If you mean the $20 bonus, you can turn a lot of stuff (>$20 TIV) for a good amount. I traded in my extra Skyrim CE PS3 (bought for $60 in GS credit) for $122 plus the $20 bonus. Hope it turns out ok.

It does, in a way, determine hours. If an employee has lower Res/Pro numbers, it may look like they aren't giving 100% at work, and therefore they should get less hours than somebody who is doing well enough. Hell, when I started at the store I am at right now, I went about two weeks with negative numbers for pre-orders, because everybody decided the new guy deserved all of the cancels :lol: It is aggravating, but I refuse to pressure somebody more than asking if they are interested in putting money towards a game they show interest in.

i think there was a quote a couple days ago for $26 (which it probably is now). the $30 isn't base, it is the base + whatever makes it $30

Does anyone know the current base for Ocarina of Time 3D? It keeps dropping. I'm hoping for $22.


Also, thanks, bob330i. I'll avoid trading back games I bought at Gamestop to Gamestop just to be safe.

So like I said, if the manager doesn't know anything they will assign hours based on "the numbers". Those are probably the types that tell people they get a free preorder when they trade something in.

If someone cancels and reserves at the same time, does that count as a cancel and reserve? What if someone 'cancels" after release? Also what about returns?

It's -1 and +1, so 0 Net Res. If someone cancels after release, it's a cancel (-1).

Returns don't do anything.

Moral of the story: pick up your pre-orders and then return. Better for employees, and you get the pre-order bonus codes (if any).

Just to clarify, the flipping ban comment really refers to doing a same day flip vs. legitimately playing the game then trading it in to GS a month later. I don't see any issues with the latter scenario and I think GS wouldn't care much either. It's just a rare occurance that you can buy something and trade it in for more which opens up the same day/same store flip issue.
