But you have to be a Pro Member for the pass to work to get the discount so you still have to put out an extra $15. I just don't really get the rationale for this since your not gonna get any new customers by limiting it to Pro Members only. It's basically for ppl who shop at GS regularly already.


Pretty much this "deal" is just to get people who are already pro members that would be getting one of these games anyways to get them to buy some of the others.

I cringe whenever I see someone pay $59.99+tax for a new game at GameStop. Best Buy has spoiled us all, never paying over $36+tax for any new release.

Edit: Meant to put this in regular GS thread:
Uncharted 4 dropped to $17.99 preowned for PUR pro. New is $59.99.

Jesus christ.....really lamestop?

I still cringe everytime I see people on here buying from them though. I get all the game ignorant parents and grandparents that see "GAMEstop" and go in there because it's a game store and don't know any better. But for shits sakes folks were supposed to know better. We all bitch about em but most here still buy from them.

I will admit though they get 15 bucks a year from me for a pro member ship but only reason I do it is because I like to read the magazine on the shitter and don't like most other game magazines, except retro gamer but God damn it's expensive. Just checked my account, last time I bought something from them was damn.....October 3rd 2014.

Amazon and Best buy can afford to sell new games at cost. They have other means to make up for that. Gamestop doesn't really have that.
 

Pretty sure their sales in used games make up for it.

I don't mind buying from them on occasion when the rare sale comes along with the lowest price for a game, or if they're trade promo is good when stacked with bonuses. Other than that GS can suck it.

That's a wise way to assure folks buy games closer to their release dates and Gamestop only loses $10 while increase transactions and income. Very wise business thinking. Unfortunately for them, we live and die by that extensive discount and monitor it constantly!

I wonder if this can be combined with a birthday coupon or something to make this worthwhile? But a b-day coupon is always 20% of a used game these days right or is there some other possibility? Hmm

I'm sorry to say but basically nothing could make this worthwhile

Not close at all to what Best Buy and Amazon are making money off of.

Saved image to post on every GameStop FB post. They have some snarky ass spicy social media manager now as well. Every post of someone talking shit on their Facebook page gets a response from them talking shit back now. It's a sad attempt to be "ONE OF DA BOIZ"

Lamestop and the cat shit quote. The tears are real....the only good thing to come outta this is DrBayrd's post that Uncharted 4 is $17.99 used after pro discount. I'll use my $10 cred to snag that for less than $10. Woot

So if you picked up nier on release screw you basically?

This might be worth it to pick up Mass effect and prey if I get $10 off all 3, since I can use credit instead of cash at best buy. But I already bought nier.
