Cheapest bundle (and the only one that was not full of junk I have no interest in) is already sold out. 

 

Fucking ridiculious practice right here. I could understand an extra controller or extension cord... but a shitty MM helmet or a fucking sketch book? Fuck you Gamestop...

Got the $150 bundle.  The way I view it, there's no way I'd get it for that price without the extra junk, so I get the extra junk for free.  It's selling for like $200+ on auction sites and the like.

Good for those that missed out at Walmart.

I bet they are all repackaged pre-owned NES Classics that they took in for trade. They didn't sell them online or in store and I know they took in a few hundred at least.

I mean, you would have saved like $3 buying that Zelda bundle vs. buying everything on its own (at MSRP).

 

Scummy practice, but I get why the companies do it.  These are selling out fast.

I stop putting it up as employees said they were all shipped back to the warehouse and not sold in stores.

Can think geek items be returned at GameStop?  I wonder if you could just return the extra stuff instead of dealing with GameStop's scummy bundles.

it says you have to return all as a bundle.

 

I would just buy the canvases or the tetris lamp one... sold out, unfortunately

Well, on the bundles pages they say you can't return individual items, as "that would be cheating", as if what they aren't doing isn't cheating.  

 

For me, I got the one with the Playing with Power item, which seems pretty cool.  Don't care about the lamp or puzzle though :/

Nope... all gone (even the $220 Mega Man themed bundle)! Fucking scalpers made quick work of it, I'm sure.

Had some extra funds thanks to the recent BB Galaxy S8+ fiasco. Picked up the BotW bundle since it was the best one still in stock when I saw this. Honestly not sure what I'm going to do with the NES Classic, but I'm glad to have one.

Everyone, me included hates on GameStop for this stuff. It really is a sleezy way to do business. But every bundle has sold out. As long as some out there are desperate enough, this practice won't end.

What does pennied out mean?

Pennied out means priced at a penny they are supposed to pull them and destroy them or ship it back to the publisher. But sometimes you can get them to sell it to you for a penny.
