And they just announced that doom eternal gets a free next gen upgrade!  Within minutes of my purchase.  Knowing a next gen version of most late AAA releases would be coming is what has held me back on a lot of purchases, but a free upgrade for previous owners is a great new trend I’d like to see more of.  I don’t have RDR2 yet, it’s obviously coming to the next gen systems,  probably the systems after that too, but I’d buy it now if I knew a free next gen upgrade was coming.

GameStop’s website is absolute garbage. I usually purchase through the app which is a bit better, but I can’t get any PUR certs through there. Smh.

I guess you can’t use a rewards cert if you do the 2/$45 or 4/$80? It doesn’t work with my $5 monthly coupon but I know there’s different rules for those (can’t use on PSN credit for example).

Haha, yeah, with how much they have milked GTAV, and how much it’s still selling, It’s unlikely.  I’ll wait 3-4 years till the next gen version RDR2 qualifies for a good deal I guess.  On the other hand, games as a service is becoming so huge, I could see it as a move to get more people into and sticking with RDR2 online...

I'll refresh your memory,

The same V shaped inner portion defect is in the post you recently deleted, but I recognize it as one you posted before -- (also your recent posts where photos are "old", because they are anything but original).  But you like to repost them as new.  Tell me more.

 

edit - he deleted that post too.  Evidence shows as a invalid page.  /sigh  -- {{-- -- MODS! --}}

You win. They're both gone.

What's the best "Thank you" message that anyone has received from a gamestop order on the invoice sheet? I haven't seen much in the last year, but have received a few cute pictures and what not. I love that.

Anyone know if the spend $60 and get the $10 back by the 9th day deal thing going on counts games preorders or not? Just preordered enough games to hit $60 and not sure if I will get the coupon or not is why I am asking.

No one knows the exact mechanics of this promo. But i would say reservation $ is unlikely to count toward the 60. Needs to be a completed purchase in a single transaction.

Awww, my local GameStop has a new manager that completely sucks. Used to have a great one, this guy won’t even match trade values on GameStop’s own app. Oh well I guess I’m avoiding buying physical just so I don’t have anything to trade lol

Still need them to trade up to new consoles, but that’s the only thing I’ll purchase from them again

Yup, one GS hardass can make all the difference. Tried trading in a game shortly before the pandemic and the employee (unsure if it was the manager) said the disc label had a small scuff mark and that he couldn't accept it. I saw no blemish of any kind. Took the same disc to a GS a couple of miles away and it was examined and accepted without question...no problem. 

 

Just think that was funny, given how many people here have received pre-owned discs in absolutely miserable shape...and I was given a hard time about a tiny scuff mark (and not even on the data side) that I couldn't even see.

Wait, in single transaction? Shit. I spent $40 2 days ago and was considering how I'd make up the other $20.

I wish that they would spend more time ensuring the accuracy of my order rather than spending time putting pictures on things

Does mean that I'm actually getting my replacement order? I mean, only a month after they told me I'd get it... but if I get it.

I only have one recent experience to reference, but yeah, this is the message I got about a week before finally receiving one replacement order I had to do

^^^^what this person said, happened to me less than a week ago. It turned out to be a game replacement from an online request about a month ago.

So Gamestop is opened this Thanksgiving right? They're so desperate that they will most likely do it. It other words, they don't care about their employees and are even told to finish up the transaction quickly, even if the customer comes in without mask on.

Hey, it's the user who posted a new thread / PSA in the deals section a few months ago that Gamestop would never open again.  Valuable, accurate posts.  Certainly not fueled by youtube clickbait.  Not a bit.

How is this different than most places? The only retailer I've seen actually enforce the mask policy is Costco. Everywhere else, maskless people walk in/out without any hassle because companies can't do shit about it and employees don't want to get harassed, attacked or shot. 

 

I went in last week and the employee was clean (used hand sanitizer) and had a mask on- that's all they can really do.

And something's not "adding up."   First off, all of the figures say "pre-order" but the date is August 4th.   

 

Secondly, when putting 2 figures in the cart it recognizes the cost of the first towards free shipping but not the second toy.  When adding a third toy, the cart still doesn't give you free shipping, even when your pre-promo total is over $35. 

 

I don't get it.  This is weird. 

 

Wondering if I actually do order some of these toys through Gametop if I will even get them.

not trying to derail anything but I thought Walmart and Target announced they weren’t going to be open on thanksgiving? Tho of course that could just mean opening at 12:01 am Friday

They did. Target also announced their deals would be starting in October. I’m guessing the deals won’t be as good this year.

I got a replacement about 1.5 months after I contacted them about it. It just arrived, never received one of these emails.

Now the same Transformers that were Buy One Get One 50% off are no longer on sale at all.  This whole promo was messed up.

Probably because there has been no new TF game in nearly 5 years, since Activision let the license expire after Devastation.  So they'd either have to do a sale on Rise of the Dark Spark or Devastation, if they do sale on current gen games.  Which both are starting to become hard to find as are the PS3/360 games.

my favorite part of gamestop sales is when new price points appear just to avoid being part of a sale IE $15.99 used games that suddenly have appeared.
