You need to cancel your preorders before they release. You need to be careful of release dates. I put mine on BotW but cancelled it before it released. They had no problem with it. I put towards another purchase. I'm preordering stuff like Mario Odyssey that doesn't have a release date. You need to be careful and avoid that Gamestop. They're looking into your account and it can get deactivated and you can loose everything.

Who died and made you judge, juror, and executioner? The world isn't black and white buddy. Life isn't black or white. You do know even laws aren't always right. But I guess in your mind everyone is created equal, and everyone should always do as they are told.

for a website community that always tries to find price mistakes, exploit promotions and sales ( I read a lot of people on here use a promo to preorder a game that is designated for that promo and then cancel the promo- isn't that immoral and illegal?) and be what the website name is ( cheapass), there sure are a lot of two faced members.

 

The world?  Life?  Unjust laws?  You're not fighting the good fight against oppression and tyranny here "buddy".  You're trying to save a few bucks by committing fraud.  Relax.

I traded a PAL copy of Wii Xenoblade Chronicles during the last 60% bump and made out like a bandit

That lady is a cunt, but you kind of fucked yourself over by getting so noticed.


How does one not get noticed. I go in to a store once and they remember 3 months later. It's annoying. I can buy a pack of gum and they will be like weren't you that guy that tried to trade in a pack of gum!

Warning.  Boring story 4 some.  Please ignore if you're offended by a poster who decides to share their boring GS experience from today.

 

 

My nice GS manager wouldn't accept my defective retro returns because they each were part of a B2G1.  She kept saying they were free.  So I argued with her with a smile on my face, nothing heated, and only because I have had defectives games before from buying online and GS always refunded me even if part of a B2G1.  She wouldn't do the pro-rated refund.  We went back and forth and she kept saying the games were free.  Finally I switch up my argument and say well if the games were free can you order me a free replacement from online?  But that didn't go anywhere either.  I wasn't sure if she just didn't want to help me because I trade too much or because she really didn't think she could return my games or what.

 

Then she opened a drawer and brought out my 4 Switch pre-orders.  3 straps and a grey joycon.  And asked me if I'm going to buy them.  I asked her if I could cancel because I didn't know the straps  came with the Switch.  I thought it was a separate purchase.    And she got mad at that.  You can't be doing this.  These aren't going to sell.  They send me this me stuff because you pre-ordered.  Now I'm stuck with this.   You got a great trade in value only because you're supposed to buy the accessory/game.  You can't keep do this.  I felt bad so I asked her if I could put it towards another Switch product and if they would make her happy.  I put it towards Splatoon 2 even though I'm paying $60 instead of $48 at BB.

 

Then she reminds me I was banned last year.  And out comes that the other manager blocked me.  (Her words.)  And then everyone at District level got invovled and looked at my trading and I had too many points etc.  All I said was interesting,  the other manager is always grumpy (my nice way of putting it) and he is the same guy that was telling me to keep bringing in games.  It would be nice if he makes up his mind.  

 

But whatever. I think she had enough of my trading.  I did $1500 the other week.  She also just got back from vacation from mexico and was there on a Sunday which was unusual so maybe she was extra crabby to be back.   

 

Anyway I was headed out of town 1 1/2 hours away anyway as I left GS and realized there was a GS there too.  Stopped by and they took back my retro games and gave me a pro-rated refund no problem.    

 

Man I was not going to do the GS trade thing any more (especially with no EBay/gas cards) and then this latest promotion happened and I couldn't resist. I had lots of games laying around because I sell some on the side.  But man this is more reason why I don't like dealing with them.  Not that I blame them exactly.  I mean I am not making them money really so I can understand it.  But if you don't want people to trade too much why not just publish a limit and let the customer track it.  Really I don't get the ban thing at all.   Makes more sense to let customers know where they stand.   

 

And also  why offer pre-orders and let you cancel them without penalty if you want the customer to actually buy the thing.  Nevermind offering the Switch straps as a pre-order is dumb because who needs a Switch strap at launch?  The pair of joycons come with straps.  The single joycon comes with a strap.  The Switch comes with straps.  No one needs a strap at launch.  WAs dumb to offer that pre-order option at launch.  

I think the problem is that you keep trading to this particular gamestop store and they know that your doing this excessive.  The plan is to spread it between other stores that way they don't flag your account.   During the stealth bump and 60% extra tradein I went over 5 different stores and got a total about 1700 in credits.  Not one manager complained.  Also I have been slowly canceling my $5 Mario Odessey preorder that I use for the extra tradein credit.  :D/

Some of us only (have) 2 stores on a good day.  On a bad day, when the other store gets flooded and they decide that's it's a good time to remodel, we only have 1 store.   :)

That's a negative. The coupons don't apply to gift cards.

He also managed to beat one of the hardest working wrestlers in the industry in less than 30 seconds, meanwhile having less than like 5 minutes of total ring time in this decade. Not only that, he doesn't even bother to show up to Raw (much less wrestle there) other than once a month to deliver the same old promo, while he is already out of breath just walking to the ring.

 

Can't wait for the Wrestlemania main event to be 45 seconds long, and seeing the Universal title defended once every 3 months. Well, at least we have Smackdown and NXT, or other promotions.

Hey black I'm waiting for copies of heart gold soul silver Kirby and Mario party to come in. I'd rather just take one trip weds so you think values will drop by then or should I be fine to wait?

Heres to hoping Joe, Balor, or Rollins can pull off the victory at some point this summer

According to inventory estimates nationwide all of these games are in the 3,200-3,800 range. So if they do drop they won't drop much. These 4 games are always bumped when there is a stealth bump as well. They are always in demand and scarcer then the average game.

It was, and i expected a squash, but a wait and build wait within a match for the actual match to last 30 seconds was meh. At least allow the champion to throw a punch.

Im more concerned that the lack of physical contact with Oldberg is because of his old and fraile body not being able to absorb punishment.

If that is the case Brock could legit kill him at Wrestlemania.

Cool I'll just wait it out and see if any bumps happen during the weekend. Worst case I just return em and get my credit back.
