Ohhhhh what a badass!

Track the package via UPS, not USPS.

Maybe you should read the whole post before commenting. You look foolish otherwise.

Still the same on my PS4 Pro. UPS awaiting pick up since 6/25, was to be delivered 7/1. Lol.


Did you contact GameStop yet? A controller is one thing but your paid good money for that PS4 Pro.

I have an order that I placed on 6/12 or so that still hadn't shipped.  It was stuck at "Just Shipped" with no change until Monday when it was changed to "Awaiting Carrier Pickup".  I emailed them yesterday about it.  They offered either a replacement or a refund.  I opted for a refund this morning but haven't heard back yet.  I'm not super concerned about the order itself, it was mostly impulse purchases I'll likely never get around to.

The package shipped via USPS but thanks for the lame and weak personal attack.

That’s how UPS mail innovations works... UPS picks it up and delivers it to USPS. Tracking on USPS will stay as awaiting pickup until they get it. Doesn’t matter if the GS link says it’s shipped USPS.

I’ll let you try it and wait for an apology.

In the email it shows that it was shipped via USPS, in all likelihood it was initially shipped via UPS Mail Innovations. I had an order back in early May that I had the same problem with as far as shipment and tracking. It took me over two weeks to finally get a clue and check the tracking number through UPS MI.

$17 after bonus (not pro anymore) for No Man's Sky (X1) seems high to me.

On a side note, another local GS I frequented has randomly shut down. Dont know why at all for this one, but it's pretty crazy that corporate is allowing random stores just to simply shut down.

It's not that crazy. Corporate isn't allowing them to shut down - no one wants to risk covid or have irate customers flip out after being asked to wear a mask for minimum wage, which is still $7.75 in some states.

Yeah. Got back in 24 hours and said give them two - three weeks for a replacement. We shall see. Sorry you're dealing with this crap as well.

Lol why would I apologize to someone that thinks only UPS handles USPS packages. FedEx does as well. Didn’t see you telling him to check there as well. But you continue to think you’re smarter than everyone else.

You'll be waiting awhile for that apology as it didn't work. You can imagine how surprised I am. It's like you have no idea what you are talking about because this might not be the same issue you've had before.

I never get NISA CEs on value. I bought a ton of their CEs from last gen and they're almost all worthless.. but it seems like every other CE this gen shoots up crazy prices. I don't get why this one did, the games aren't that good from the reviews and even the demo. 

I dunno either, but I love the style of those old Working Design CEs. I think it's the character art they put on the CDs that looks like it came straight from them. I bought the standard edition since it's on clearance and will probably pick up the extras at some point.

As aircobra suggested you can also try the tracking number on FedEx. Maybe try DHL eCommerce also just to be safe. If nothing comes up on those two, then the long wait with USPS begins.

Damn I was wondering what $10 off coupon everyone was talking about, I've been extremely out of the loop on these forums/Gamestop in general and thought it was some other kind of coupon, didn't know you guys were talking about the PUR ones you can redeem.  Should have used mine on Yakuza Remastered while I had the chance.

GS gave all reward members $10 off a $30, $50, or $60 purchase last week.

It's only been out for 2 years on XBox and is close to being out of print.

I think it was aimed at members that hadn't been in in a while. I'm a member but rarely go into the store and got one.

Maybe not all but at least 75% of members. I got a $10 off $60 and bought $70 of XBox currency to buy the MVP edition of Madden.

 

Edit: And I buy 90% of my physical games at GameStop so low frequency wasn't what triggered a code.

Ah ok. Damn I thought it was based on trying to get you back into the store.

I've purchased quite a bit from GS and didn't get anything. There didn't seem to be any type of logic as to who got one and who didn't... 

 

The only outliers with my account is that I've been a PUR+ member for a long ass time (dating back to 2011, possibly earlier) and I'm sitting a lot of points (160K-ish).

I've been a member since 2010 (STL was a test market for PUR) and have 90k points. Meanwhile my friend in Chicago that's hadn't made a purchase in store since Nov. also got a coupon. Sorry I thought everyone got one, it seemed like from the comments here last week everyone got one.

They are doing lower prints than they used to so stuff is going out of stock and print faster for some games.

The hdn ces for the vita exploded in price though so I can only assume you missed those.

FedEx came up with nothing too. I'm just screwed. I'm calling them tomorrow to complain.

GameStop shipped my two games today via USPS. This means that they are likely shipping in a soft envelope and they can just put it in the mailbox correct? I might have to be out of town until Friday and not sure how long it's going to take for them to get to me. I would prefer them not leaving a box on my front doorstep. If that's the case I can always ask a neighbor to watch out for them. The way the mail is going though I probably won't get them until Monday at the earliest.


Maybe not. I finally received my Pokemon emerald GBA game from the 50% off sale and it shipped USPS with no other items in a medium size box (probably 6x4x12).

I bought a game in-store about a week before getting my $10 voucher via email.

What does it say when you track it via GameStop's website? Just shipped?

Mind blowing that this many people don't know how GS shipping works. As I said, if it ships via USPS, its 10 days MINIMUM before you get your order. Once they check it in, they usually get it to you the next day. That's a MINIMUM of 9 days before your tracking is updated, but it can also be anywhere from 9-12 or so days, and I've had it up to 18 days during this time period. Relax. That's what you get when you buy from GS.

UPS is better, but is also usually at least a 7 day wait time unless your order is shipped same state or you choose a faster shipping method. It should always say what carrier is taking it at the bottom of your GS tracking order number.

Also, everyone should know by now never to trust the delivery date.
