If you have open stores nearby, it would be much easier to let it ship then return to store.  It can be a huge pain to get credit back.  In some cases due to terrible CS I never did get it back and just ate the loss.

ah okay. Ive had trials of mana switch ordered since 5/1, never shipped, says awaiting product availability but I noticed a store not far away has it for store pick up so I was thinking of ordering it with store pick up along with 2 other games for b2g1 but not if Im going to have to fight with CS to get the $50 in credit back. I guess I could always order anyway and then when the original order finally gets in stock and ships I can just return it. hmm decisions....

Just received my first order from game for used games. Bought the resident evil 4-7 bundle for xbo and two of them didn’t have artwork. Is there any point trying to return those two to get art? Or do I have to return all four?

I just bought new Persona 5 Royal, new Final Fantasy VII Remake, and used Astral Chain. Also bought Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon bundle for $24.99 yesterday even though I have both already.

If anyone needs to exchange cases, I'd suggest giving stores a call and ask if they have the OG case and if they'd be willing to exchange (or just give it to you) if they still arent regularly open. I called one that had the only copy of a game I needed within 40 miles and they had the OG case, and he said he'd just let me have it. You guys might get lucky

In my experience, like 9/10 times I have ask for a case they just give it to me. It has mostly been with older gen stuff though.

For those that have fully-paid preorders for The Last Of Us 2 and live in a state where all GS are still closed: has there been any indication that they might offer that ship to home thing again?

Asking as I live in NY and our GameStop’s are most likely gonna be closed until July at least

Damn that’s a deal considering what they sell for on eBay. I missed out oh well next time hopefully I notice of their sales have been recurring and I’ve seen a local GameStop store with a whole 3ds case full with moon sun and ultra moon and ultra sun lol.

Octopath travel preowned $30.

Anyone know if the 3rd item free from b2g1 is canceled for store pickup, how does that workout on billing?

Man, shouldnt the system discount the other 2 games since the third game is unavailable?

Example: game 1 $30 prepare shipment

Game 2 $30 store pickup ready

Game 3 $30 store cancelled.

Game 2 and 3 is brand new. Dont understand how messy the inventory system is.

Since game 3 is cancelled, should the bill be around $40 since the free game got cancelled or am i still bill for $ 60 for 2 games?

Yeah they will charge you full price. When they had a B2G2 I had two for in-store pick-up that got cancelled but they still shipped me the other two games and I was charged full price. Had to go to the store to return the two that I received.

It also works in your favor sometimes. They might cancel the ones you pay for and then you get free games. GameStop has a really shitty system.

So i check on the website status and the game is prepared for shipment. I havent pickup the one game yet. Sadly, The 3rd free game got cancelled since they probably couldnt find it.

Game 1 $29.99 awaiting shipment

Game 2 $29.99 ready for pickup

Game 3 $0 pickup cancelled


The gamestop online status shows the price is $42.40

So does that mean once items shipped and pickup, an i charge that amount? Just worried that it may readjust after everything is completed.

Also took a picture in case billing statement shows differently.

Have any GameStops reopened for in person business? If so, are they accepting trades? Just curious. Retail reopened in my state today but GameStop is still closed.

My main store reopened for customers (not just curbside) on Monday the 19th. They are only accepting trades on electronics, and the current systems/games (PS4, XB1, Switch) plus 3DS. They are also taking returns but not dealing with cash (returned a clearance Lilith action figure and put it on Saints Row 3 Remastered.)

Wait, so if you return a game, you have to put the funds towards something else..? Is that legal?

During the last B2G2 a couple of weeks ago I ordered 8 games. Only 3 came with the artwork so I went to return them all to my local store. Long story short they had art for one of them and refunded me for the other 4 but refunded me the full price of each game not just for 2. So I got the 4 I kept for free plus a couple of bucks because every game said $9.97 on the invoices.

I was baffled at the time but it makes sense reading this thread.

...and this is how a company goes out of business. Simply crazy that they could allow this to happen.

Yep, I've "taken advantage" of this enough times that whenever I get the short end on a few things like missing a cert, some points, incorrect discs, I usually just shoot an email to support and let it slide if they don't respond. Usually that ends up with me having a stack of snail-mailed gift cards with a couple bucks on each.

If you paid with a card, it would just go back to the card. He’s talking about literal cash, which many businesses have discontinued using because of the covid potential.

As for legality, return policies at any store are always “at manager discretion”, there’s not really a legal requirement to offer returns for most retail.

just sounds like anything you return has to go back on a trade card/credit card. which makes sense because I think stores havent been dealing with cash in over 30 days so you shouldn't have purchased anything with cash within the return period
