 I really want to complain but since she is the manager and it's the only GameStop near me I don't want to cause a situation where she will always be on my case.

Lose more money or bring it to their attention, your choice. Guaranteed It's not only you she's doing it to.

Trade bump is giving tricks instead of treats this year. I think GTA V, Advanced Warfare, and Spider-Man decreased in value.

Yea, it seems a few typical switch titles are $30 base, didn't check too much else as no +5 = no wawawewa excite  :bs:

It's possible the bump happens tomorrow. At least I hope.

But the search code is dated today

I received an email with an order also in limbo like this today.  

 

"We recently contacted you to inform you of an unforeseen technical issue causing your Order Number XXXXXXXXXXX to be shipping later than expected.  As of now, we expect your order to process as soon as Friday October 30th.  After processing, your order will be delivered to you according to the shipping option you selected.

 

Again, we are sincerely sorry for the disappointment we created with this order delay and apologize that we could not deliver on the commitment that we made. We appreciate your business and patience. If you require any additional assistance, please feel free to reply to this ema

 

Here's the email I received regarding my "awaiting product availability" status:






Fuck these guys seriously. I want my games. I've placed a couple orders after the problem order, and didn't have an issue. All the games shoe available for shipping on the website.

Guys I had the same issue and had to escalate it. It turns out the "waiting availability" limbo is because when the order was placed they set order fulfillment to the stores. So no stores are sending it out and it goes in limbo even though the website has it. You have to call them and explain the issue. They will see it's available online and escalate it. I did this and both of my limbo games shipped within 24 hours. Hope this helps everyone.

 

EDIT: Don't use chat. They're as useless as a third nipple. Call in.

Well, that was obviously wrong. They have stealth bumped on Saturday after no bump on that Friday.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is in stock pre-owned on gamestop. My hope is that switch games usually come with the case.  I know the physical copy is a little tough to find these days.

 

I grabbed Cadence of Hyrule in the same order and forgot about the new game gets 30% off used deal and that knocked $12 off. yay!

I got a spend $300 get $30 off coupon in my active offers and I cannot tell if I need to spend $300 to get it or if I already spent $300. Anyone else get this or know what the timeframe for purchase is/was?

If it’s in your offers you have earned the coupon.  You don’t need to spend $300 to use it, but it’s good just for 1 item in store

Cool thanks, have not spent $300 this month. Not that it matters, but do you happen to know when this started.

It’s been awhile, looks like 3 weeks left to earn with the deal.  Online it says coupon is good till end of the year.

Quite a few, but they're only visible in the weekly ad.

I added tried a few things (used PS4 game, new copy of Madden 21 on PS4, and preorder copy of Cyberpunk on X1), but didn't see any discount or benefit.

How are you guys ignoring my brilliant idea? Seems like a win win for workers and customers. Have the inventory available on the GameStop app when you are on the store WiFi.

You do realize the stores run on like the lowest level DSL and don't have public Wi-Fi currently don't you? Not saying it's a bad idea, but it's going to take a hell of a MS tech infusion to get stores to that level of usability.

 

The current POS system is just a shell program built on top of their Software Etc/Funcoland database from the 90's. If you find an employee that knows how to print a store's stock for you, that's what they're printing from.

Yup, same here. You can use coins, rewards, or coupons to reduce the price of watch dogs or any new game and get 30% off a preowned game as long as the game doesn't go below 29.99.

As long as watch dogs does not go under 29.99?

The manager can look it up but they usually don't. They can see the survey. The DMs handle bad surverys. You should get a call from the DM about that because that's not cool at all. I'd be pissed off.


Yeah I was pissed off, and it's the second time she's done it. I called up and they gave me $5 in points and just told me to watch her transactions next time I go there.
Also did anybody notice that the game coin offer has changed.
"PowerUp Rewards Members who purchase Watch Dogs Legion at GameStop are eligible for Up to $10 Game Coin!
Pro members get $10 Game Coin, Players $5 Game Coin when they pick up the game by 11/4/20."

Some values are lower in the app search engine than they are in my saved trades column.  This makes me think there may be a stealth dump for those games coming soon.   Sometimes the app will "preview" upcoming changes in values.

Dropped by a mostly transformed store this afternoon... it looks bleak. No actual game carts/art = bland game covers on both sides and no idea what is actually in stock. Seems like a lot of open space with a ton of crap jam packed into the minimal available shelf space. Nintendo in the back of the store now with PC gaming stuff taking a good chunk of the middle. Did see a ton of restocked plushies in for anyone looking for those.  :shock:

 

stealth dump

That's what I call a delivered load and the wipe comes up clean.
