I'd love for CAG16 to come back so I can increase my spending habits at GS.com as an Elite Pro. :joystick:

You'd probably have better luck getting an answer posting this in the right forum:

or asking the CAG Twitter and copying CheapyD and the wombat guy and whoever else is on the pdocast:

Haven't bought anything online since this broke. If CheapyD has any power to fix this it would be much appreciated.

Really would be nice to know if this is just a glitch or this is intended.  If it's intended, can they be convinced to change it back?  Elite and CAG16 stacking would be 33% off which is not crazy considering other sales gamestop has.  Plus we'd be buying a lot more.  How do we get Cheapy's attention.  @Cheapy....no that didn't work.  Maybe wrastling gif

They’ve been saying that for years, and yet they are still here. GS, like most businesses, can be beneficial to shop from as long as you know how to do so. If you don’t like buying an opened game as new, then don’t purchase those from them. There are plenty of sealed games, systems, used products, and trinkets that almost anyone can find something of value.

I ordered Resident Evil “new” for the Wii U a few weeks ago. Not only did it arrive opened but the manual was all crinkled up. The disc even had a scratch on it! They didn’t even try to hide that it was used. I know them selling opened games as “new” is typical but this was clearly a preowned and fairly well used game. Everyone should just boycott them due to their shady business practices.

Sounds like you just got a stores gut copy. Stores that only have used copies wouldnt be asked to send it as a new copy.

CAG16 should now be stacking with the PUR discount.  Thanks for heads-up, OP.

Stacks with normal PUR but not elite.  Just tried it out.

It would be fantastic if CAG16 could also stack with Elite because now we really are paying more with the "better" membership (20% discount vs. 24.4% for PUR Pro + CAG16). :pray:

Elite is now a worse deal for online purchases than Pro is.  GG, Gamestop. 

 

They should code it to allow for use across the board like it use, since they know it's a site referral from here and shoudl work regardless if you're using no PUR, Pro or Elite.  Not that hard to do.

I believe it was already stacking with Power Up Rewards Pro members online (10% Pro + 16% CAG16) however the problem is with the new Power Up Rewards Elite membership not stacking online with CAG16 (20% Elite + 16% CAG16)

Thanks Cheapy for getting involved, but it still doesn't work for Elite Pro members, which means Pro members actually get a better deal than those of us who upgraded.

Not sure of the timetable you're referring to, but people have reported for a few weeks in the GameStop deals thread that CAG16 wasn't stacking with Pro. Not trying to sound like a jerk, just letting you know. :)

And everyone was stating that as well. Convenient to address the issue but ignore the actual issue. GJ. And than the thread is marked resolved when it isn't. This feels like a political resolution where it's still a problem for most but it works*.

*For some.

GS is investigating and will get back to us soon.

I don't know if this will help the GS coders solve anything. During the Retro B2G1 on the weekend of Sept. 30th through October 2nd, the elite 20% discount, CAG16, and the retro B2G1 promo all stacked and worked together at once. Then on October 3rd, something happened that made the Elite 20% discount not work together with CAG16 at all. Whatever coding they implemented in the early morning of October 3rd made CAG16 FUBAR with elite. I haven't placed a gamestop.com order at all since then because of this. 

 

I would assume the risk of refurbished disc only games for 26% off. I'm such a CAG that paying a $30 membership fee for 6% less discount is a deal breaker.
