Just received the last four games from an order I made on May 20, lol. I had written them off as lost.

That's a nice box. That Yu-Gi-Oh deck isn't even for sale on the GS website. If your kids like Yu-Gi-Oh, check out the Speed Duel decks. Each set comes with 2 decks of 30 cards instead of one 45-card deck, so it's a cheap way to play. You can use your $5 monthly coupon to get it for half off.

My kids haven’t quite gotten to the “playing” part of these themed cards, just the shiny collecting part.

Also realized any certs that lowered their box’s price also negated the free shipping so decided to just use all certs to pay for it (since they don’t work with most promos anymore... so $10 from last weeks promo, $5 monthly, $5 + $15 certs) - all stacked. Then just bought some more stock from the 50% off sale! (Seems like switch stock for popular games on the webpage is pulling directly from store trade ins now? been seeing quite a few “1 left” for delivery)

Is there any way to preorder for in store, without going in a store? I thought there was but... not seeing it on the website. 

You can't do that

I think that went away after the site redesign. I remember doing that accidentally once and it said to go to the store to add a deposit in so many days otherwise it would cancel. August 2019 is when I did it.

At this point, order some more stuff now and know that you'll get your Christmas shopping taken care of.  :)

you can't use the $5 monthly on deal of the day? I really wanted Judgment  :bomb:  

What do people even use their coupons on? (For closed stores)

You can't use the $5 monthly voucher on online orders. In-store only. If your store is closed then you're out of luck.

 

I use the $5 off on $10 PSN and eShop cards.

$5 monthly are able to be used online. You just can't use them on any item that qualify for any type of promo/discount. In the past we'd be able to combine the DOTD with the current active promo. ie - you'd be able to use FFXII Zodiac age in the 50% off $100 promo to get it down to $9.99.

 

You can confirm by adding coupon + any *NEW* in-stock game to cart. Make sure you paste the code correctly. 

 

It also doesn't disappear from active offers after using it online.... so  :beer:

This was true before Rona but it has worked with online orders since April. But it essentially has to be a full price item, and if it’s under $35 it is basically just free shipping.

4 out of my 5 games came today (very fast shipping, i might add)...all of them came in the original case and the discs were in pretty good shape.

all 5 of my games came including Days Gone, Spiderman, Nier Automata,  Dreams, and Death Stranding.   ALL ORIGINAL CASES.  thank goodness.. only the spiderman had a weird powdery substance that I just wiped off with a bleach wipe.

Seems like my PS3 controller has finally died after 9 years. Should I pick one up at GameStop or somewhere else. I'm looking for a genuine one

It does work on weekly sale items.  I used it on NSMBUD when it was on sale for $40

Good point. That’s why I put “essentially,” because I figured there may be some items, but it typically won’t stack with DotD or with the Buy X Get X flash sales we’ve been having lately. Either way, the coupons are currently working online for certain orders.

I wouldn't trust a pre owned ps3 controller from GameStop. You aware the DS4 works on ps3?

What died on it?

 

If the battery, replacements widely available (at least when I got one on Amazon a few months back), easy to replace and can extend the usable life of your controller.

Man...such a bummer the DOTD on Judgement doesn’t stack with the 50% off...at least it’s not working for me.

Yeah I was going to stockpile DS3 controllers since I still have my PS3 backlog. I got a new controller from a new ps3 slim and the controller had issues in the first year. Then I remembered reading that DS4 works so I didn't need to get more DS3 controllers

Unless it changed I think the DS4 only works on select ps3 games. If it is across the board I need to hook my ps3 back up. I hated the DS3 and skipped several games because of it.

I’m pretty sure they just disabled sale games from the buy $100+ save 50% sale. I had Doom Eternal and Medievil in my cart and now they are not showing the 50% off.

Sweet. /s

Weird thing is, Judgment counts towards your $100+ limit, but other Sale items do not. But, you don’t get 50% off Judgment

When picking up a game already pre-ordered and ready for pickup, yes.

 

If you mean using it as a deposit for a pre-order, no dice.

Anyone get a "For technical reasons, your request could not be handled properly at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience." when trying to look up your order history? I can look up specific orders fine, its just less convenient.

Before I call CS, I figured I'd check here...I pre-ordered Doom Eternal and MLB 2020 before COVID and never picked either up. DOOM finally dropped off my "released preorders" list but MLB is still there. So there is no record of my DOOM preorder (outside of a receipt buried in my office somewhere which I'm currently still barred from due to COVID).

 

Has this happened to others? Will I have to call customer service or will the store see something different in their system?

The store will still show you have a pre-order that was never picked up.
