Need suggestions/recommendations:

I have a $5 and $10 store credit to use by Saturday, and the $30 credit too. I'm not necessarily in need of any games or accessories right now, so any suggestions on what non-toy/figure stuff to buy would be appreciated.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe. It’s G2L, so you could conceivably return it and bypass the expiration on the credits.

I'm waiting for the store-in-stock checker to come back on so I can order another box of random crap!  :razz:

 

Speaking of which - it seems like they have some sort of algorithm that is discounting random games $5-$20 maybe based on their historical vs recent sales volume / stock that aren't advertised of part of any specific promo. I see a bunch of items in my retro wishlist that are both out of stock and still have sale prices for no apparent reason

$200 trade in promotion still active or not really?

That's just a site glitch. I've had it before multiple times. If the tracking number starts with a 9, it's most likely Fedex.


I don’t have any idea where you came up with that idea, but by coincidence, I received two packages today, one UPS and one USPS (probably handoff though) , and both tracking numbers start with 9.

Question. 
 

I see people talking about using G2L to shift certificates to trade credit. Tried to preorder watch dogs today using $60 certs. Associate said can’t use them on preorders. Do I have to wait until release day and buy in store?  I assume then you can’t get the game coin.

UPS SurePost and Mail Innovations will start with 9 but are long tracking numbers. Normal UPS packages start with 1Z. The majority of shipments from GameStop will be handled by FedEx. It was a stupid choice since they suck, but oh well.

Preorder in full. Then when you go to pick it up, tell them you want to use reward certs on it. You'll get the coin that way.

Mine ordered Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart is cancelled.  Of-course Gamestop charge me $14.50 for no reason. I will call them later this week.  Be aware sneaky charge on your credit card.

The most wanted search looks to be current now, as opposed to the old placeholder data that was there before.

Maybe you have missed the fact that store pick up has been broken and it shows that stores have nothing in stock for the past week+ now?

Dunno it works for me

Cyberpunk pushed to 12/10 so we won't be getting those GC until then

I'm not even excited for the game at this point. All these delays is very reminiscent of Aliens Colonial Marines, just have a bad feeling that the hype for this game isn't going to go over well when it eventually comes out.

I'm as excited for it as ever, which is fairly little. I'm still buying it because they're good for the industry, and I really don't expect it to be like Aliens, which was easily traceable to Gearbox's Fuck-ups.  This one was developed in house, and I can't imaging it being that bad. I fully expect performance issues, however, like Witcher 3.

Guess I’m the only one with no hype for Cyberpunk. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Demon’s Souls are the only two games I’m playing for the rest of the year.

Interesting, as long as they fix online stock checker I think this is ok.  Better than the previous practice.  Having to ask about anything not in the top 200 though, that is going to drive an even bigger gulf between high profile AAA sales and niche game sales.  They should still have all preowned cases out on display though I would hope, no reason not to.

Hopefully it means we will be guaranteed to get a case + art with both new and preowned games now. (assuming there are none on display to damage or get stolen.  :oldman:

 

Might also portend requiring cases for full trade value?  :cold:

I used mine last week on $5 of Xbox credit, so unless it's a very recent change, that's incorrect.  Since you say "apparently", was this something an associate said without trying it?

If the mwt1030 is the updated list a few games I noticed that aren't on there are Mario Tennis Aces, RDR 2 (PS4), Fallen Order (PS4), and GTA V (PS4).

Only comparing it for its delays (3 at this point). Aliens had 4 iirc though.

 

The two games aren't the same, don't worry.

Comparing delays is fine by me. Definitely took it as a game comparison though. My mistake.

I'm not hyped for Cyberpunk at all but there's no way it's going to be Colonial Marines.

The TRU in Marion, IL was still using that as late as 2015 for games.

are you talking about the monthly power up reward or the coupon that prints out when you renew?

Something may have changed. A few months (maybe Augustish) back when I renewed I used mine on XB currency. I remember it being a odd situation, I renewed on like the last day of the month or something and she printed my receipt she noticed it expired like the next day so I asked to buy $5 XB code.

i'll try again at a different store as i still have to go back to gamestop to use the coupon. the guy wasn't aware you could buy $5 in xbox currency or that the monthly reward worked on it until i bought one today

Wow, this seems like a bad idea... employees are going to be fielding "is this in stock" questions in person and via phone. 

 

Unless they fix the inventory stock system and actually keep it running consistently.
