Thanks.

I like how you think! I'll toss in a Unicorn Princess on PS4 to recoup some of my costs! :)

Can you still use Gamestop credit to buy gift cards for Hulu or Netflix? I know they nixed using it for brick and mortar retailers awhile back but wasn't sure about stuff like that?

 

In June I used $200 trade credit to buy 2 $100 Netflix cards.

All my items shipped, I compiled a list to keep track of all games. Red titles came incomplete, grey haven't arrived & green is complete.

Does the $5 reward no longer work online?  It worked for me last month but won't work for me today

All the time. I just toss them or save them in a box for future trade-ins

Do they charge you a refurb fee for trading in a game with a busted case?

I just tried the $5 monthly PUR code on a Series X controller and it worked. You have to copy and paste the code in the promo code box.

You should not get hit with a referb fee. Someone in here was saying that GS is going to start requiring cases on trades a few weeks ago, but I do not think there is any confirmation that will happen. I kind of doubt it will, but would honestly be in favor of it.

No, but they sometimes give you looks with a bunch of carts without cases, and I try to avoid standing out when I'm flipping.  I'm also far less likely to lose it if it has a case

Weird.  I tried it on NBA 2K21 and wouldn't work.  It's not a deal of the day

Who would I contact for the $30 Game Coin because it hasn’t credited me with my purchase on 11/22 that would’ve put me over the $300 threshold.

Is it not possible to cancel pre-orders online? I'm trying to cancel my Cyberpunk 2077 preorder since I was able to get an order in at BB... I see the option but keep getting an error. 

 

EDIT* nevermind, worked after 4 tries.

Works just fine for me. Are you maybe using it on a sale item that might not allow you to apply codes?

2K21.  I've used it on sale items before, just wouldn't work on deals of the day.  I used my November one on a sale game on Black Friday in-store

Customer Service, but they'll probably give you a scripted line of waiting 2 weeks or something

Yep, I'm still missing 3 x $30 coins (gotten 7, used 6) and they will say "You need to spend $300 in a single transaction" when clearly that isn't the case (I haven't spend that much in one purchase at all) so I'm about ready to just take the loss as I have no clue which transactions weren't "counted" as I seemed to have gotten PUR points for them all correctly.  :oldman:

I think this every time there's a sale but there's so many niche games on the NS (and PS4) and a vast majority of them seem they're not worth the physical release/purchase.

It’s hard enough getting customer service to honor straightforward offers that are missing, I don’t think anyone is getting a missing spend $300 get $30 cert, I will be impressed if you do.  Let us know the reps name if you actually get one that can help!  Sarah was one I got that helped with a few past issues, but not a $30 cert.  She requested a replacement for a kingdom hearts figure that they sent me something else, I got a shipping email that it was sent, but instead of it just being blank, it has its own order number and looks like they charged again for it.  Anyone ever had that happen?

Thanks, I just got back from trading in my one game that I received so far, without any problems. I was able to use my $5 monthly PUR coupon and a $5 cert on a $35 Xbox gift card.

 

They were busy packing orders to ship out and there was a big pile of stuff. The manager said "I don't want to be here when the Fedex guy gets here". Now I understand why they don't have accurate tracking, because the Fedex guy just loads all the packages without scanning them when he picks them up. It's too much work for him/her to scan over 100 packages before they leave the store.

So after my B1G1 was split for partially shipped, the tracking for the copy that was supposed to arrived today has no info and it says to contact the carrier; which is fedex. What is going on here? They haven’t cancelled my full order yet either

Quick question for the GameStop regulars. Ordered a new copy of 13 Sentinels last week, along with a filler game to hit the free shipping threshold. However, got spooked when others were reporting the possibility of GameStop mailing gutted copies of new games, and placed a second order from Amazon too. Received the Amazon order first with everything as expected, so once the GameStop order finally came in, I went today to my local store to return the games. There was no issue getting the return, but the associate gave me cash back for the return, as opposed to a credit to my CC. The order was placed with a CC.

 

Is that typical in that situation? It’s not necessarily a problem, but it did strike me as weird, given that practically every other store (Walmart, Target, BB, etc) issues refunds in the same form as the purchase was made. I don’t normally shop at GameStop unless it’s last ditch, so was more curious than anything else.

Happens sometimes, usually with new employees.

Got 4 "new" games that are opened and have used stickers on them. Going to be fun trying to exchange / return those in store.

someone else bought used games and got sealed copies so that sounds about right

I got 2 copies each of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl because of the B2G2 and all 4 games i got are bootlegs. Do they not check them before shipment? 2 of them are obvious by the sticker and the pother 2 are obvious by looking at the back of the cartridge. Id hope they would get better at this but i guess they dont get enough returns to care

They don’t show employees how to spot fakes, had a few fake copies of Heartgold and Soulsilver last time I ordered.

I received 11 games and all had cases. Dreams do come true.

I ordered Metroid Prime Hunters 3 times this summer, and got the First Hunt demo each time. With their turnover, they'll hire anybody, and they're not trained to spot fakes. Little Jimmy isn't going to notice a bootleg as long as it still plays, so the return rate is probably pretty low. 

 

Also, they probably hate their job/life, so whenever I get a soundtrack or bonus DVD instead of a game disc, I just imagine the employee looking at it, saying " Fuck this guy" and shipping it anyway.

I’ve had good luck when Pokémon games are shipped from their Texas warehouse, and terrible luck when shipped from a store.
