I hate Gamestop.

If Xenoblade and Metroid Prime trilogy are supposed to be excluded from the buy 2 get 1 free Promo, then why is it going through just fine on the website, but not in the stores? You would think the promo would be consistent for both.

^This. You actually might be able to argue for the B2G1 if you point this out.

Been on hold with Gamestop for 45 minutes. They can't be THAT busy. They must have like 3 CS reps.

If you buy Battlefield 4 can you still do the 10 dollar trade in deal to get the xbox one version?

2 Gamestop related questions

 

1 - Do $10, $20 off any item coupons from PowerUp rewards still stack as long as they aren't the same amount?

 

2 - Can I use those certificates on BF sale items or can they really only be used on full price items? I had a gamestop clerk refuse my coupon today, saying I couldn't use it with an item already on sale for BF.

 

Thanks in advance!

I have a question to add to that, can we do the trade 2 promotion towards a sale item (i.e. Battlefield 4)?

Sorry if this has already been answered 1000 times, but how long are these prices good for in store? Will they last through Friday only? I'm specifically looking to get a $19.99 kinect sensor.

Went into a GS and Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade didn't ring up as B2G1. Was told they don't work because they're already on sale. Is that correct? Thinking of going to another store down the street to either get a free game or return the two I bought. Sorry if already answered. Posting from mobile in the cold, glanced up thread but didn't see it.

 

A followup to my own post. After seeing that B2G1 works online, I went in to another GS and spoke to a manager. He agreed that the promotion should, in his own words, "of course" apply. He gave a clerk detailed instructions for a return/rebuy. All very helpful. The clerk processed the return/rebuy, but when he got to the final screen, the promotion would not apply. The manager came over and basically said "Oh yeah, it won't work. They're already on sale." I showed him the promotion working on the mobile website and he said it didn't matter. So I returned the games and told him I'd just buy them online.

 

This is the part of modern retail shopping that frustrated me the most -- that human workers are basically slaves to whatever the computer says. There seems to be increasingly less customer service, even when it's based in logic rather than irrational or entitled customer demands.

1) Different amounts will stack.  LIke a $5 and $10 but 2 $10 won't no matter what :/

 

2) Coupons don't work on BF items this year.  I tried earlier when I got a Vita Memory Card and Deadpool. :cry:  They did however work on my YS Celceta CE for Vita.  So the system must have locked them out.  I swear I was able to use coupons last year on top of BF prices.

Got a KH 1.5 LE with artbook. Mine had one left. I also ordered it from SE's store sale, but picked one up today out of fear that they won't sent the LE. If they send the LE, I'll sell it or gift it to someone.

 

Guaranteed to break even with the LE at the very least. They are getting hard to find. I could probably get $40 or more on ebay for it.

Also while I was in there buying one of those four years I also bought a $25 Kindle card and used a $10 coupon on it. They had to do them separate because it just wouldn't take the coupon in the same transaction.

I'm ps+ until February 2020. I'm still thinking about grabbing one more. Am I nuts?

I limited myself to four new cards so now I have five years to redeem once they run a promo. Trying not to focus on that it was still $120 but that if they run another 3 free months with a year promo I'll have five years and more games than I can play in that time.

I think they make you return all, though you can exchange the 2 you don't want for other games of the same price (return rebuy)

It wouldn't work for me in-store either.  It all comes down to a dumb quirk with how the systems are programmed.

 

Online: The actual prices of the games are lowered to a $39.99 sale price I believe, so the B2G1 promo applies no problem.

 

In-store: The actual prices of the games are the regular prices ($69.99 for Xenoblade and $59.99 for MPT).  The system applies a promo (promo #15306) that discounts Xenoblade by $30 or MPT by $20.  If you attempt to buy a third Xenoblbade/MPT or $40ish game to get the B2G1 promo (promo #15321), the system logic basically says: "Fuck you, you can't get 2 promos on the same game(s).  You can only get one.  I will now do my calculations to give you the better one of the two.  Promo #15306 (Xenoblade/MPT discount) discounts $40-$90 total, while promo #15321 (B2G1) discounts less than $40 total.  The former has a bigger discount for you, so I will give you that one only."

The section of the ad with the Kinect Sensor says those prices are good for 3 days so you should be fine until Sunday.

I thought they were getting harder too. Till I went to Target and saw a crap load. Made me a little mad hunting around for it at launch and every Target I've been to after I got it has tons.

Easiest Explanation is that they only allow 1 order per person (They did limit how many i could buy) it may just be the system finally working

FYI, the PUR coupons *are* working, but because the BF discounts are applied as a promo instead of just a changed price the coupons take the price down, and then the promo applies and takes it down to the BF price.

 

So for example with BF4 it took it to $50, then applied the promo as $25 off instead of $35 off
