Anyone had any luck walking into a GameStop and finding a series X or is GameStop online only?

After Saturday's deal, I would think they will be online only for a while.

It'll show up in the active offers. But did you have it fully paid off? Because if you didn't, you won't get the game coin. As GS changed the T&C for game coins back in October to only allowing it for fully paid off pre-orders before release day.


Yes, it was fully paid off. I've reached out to their customer service on the issue. To be honest, I've had issues like this with Gamestop a several times this past year. If they can't resolve this quickly and easily, this will probably be the last time I do business with them. Best Buy has been considerably better for everything.

It is worth it to call a store and ask. Usually the trade bonus for new releases goes beyond the release date/ week.

Mario Party: The Top 100 for 3DS is not on GameStop.com if you search or browse but using a search engine will take you to the page. What's that about? Maybe a setting to hide the item from results was inadvertently enabled?

 

Update: Seems WarioWare Gold acts the same. Maybe those pages weren't added to the index for some reason.

There's a number of pages like that because of gamestops site being a disaster.  Ys 8 switch is another one. 

 

My last game from the earlier 50% off order bloodstained switch came complete.  So everything complete besides cave story plus, final fantasy explorers and bravely second.

I see there's nothing about "Limit 1 per customer." Was is possible to get multiple in past promos?

Cags here reported getting multiple $30 certs from the spend 300 / get 30 that ran a month or two ago.  Cannot say if this will be the same.  But I broke off my 3 orders of 50% promo games at the $60-65 range for this reason.

Eh I never got the 10 from the last spend 60 or the 30 from the spend 300 :/  I figure if I get anything cool beans but otherwise to just not expect them.

Aw crap they ran out of a few titles I wanted that fit in the 5/50% off promo.  Got jebaited hard by the stupid PUR renewal coupon requiring a visit to the store and wanted to hold off for the extra points.

I don't recommend using the store to home same day delivery option but assuming its available that works even when it says out of stock on the website.  incase you are interested in going that route when I used it once in the past.  Do be advised that its 8$ fee for the "shipping" and all they do is leave it by your front door with the paper invoice.  No bag or anything.

None of the titles I want qualify for that anyways and there's no store stock within 200 miles.  Not being able to use that damn coupon online drives me up a wall.

I broke down and bought 8 games for $100 after tax.  7 used, 1 new.  I got Mario Rabbids for $9.49 and picked up a new copy of Sayonara Wild Hearts (PS4) for $9.  In the mood for arcade games and almost picked up Streets of Rage 4 for $15 as well, but it's on Gamepass so I'll just play it there. 

 

Also decided to play through the Fast and Furious Crossroads campaign.  Hopefully it's as bad as everyone is saying, should be hilarious.

What is the best time to renew powerup rewards in order to get the $5 monthly coupon?

Mine expires on Dec 27th. I think i didnt get my january 2020 coupon since it was too close to end of month. If i sign up too early, lets say Jan 3rd won't i miss the coupon for the January month anyway? What I want to do is sign my wife up (and baby if they would let me lol) at same time. But i first want to make sure the $5 reward still works on gaming cards in 2021 (psn, Microsoft, eshop). Thats all im using the membership for these days so a little concerned about policy changes when the new year starts.

I renewed my Pro yesterday and it expires on 12/31/2020.  Employee said it is good on currency cards.

You can just ask the employee to charge you for a $5 Xbox Live code and apply the monthly coupon.  It will print on the receipt.  I was able to do it earlier this month.

So are people who only got a $10 game coin and not $20 for CP2077 having any luck getting the 10000 points added to your accounts? I called and was told it was only $10 total and they have not records of a $20 game coin or getting two $10 game coins total for it.

Yes for the $30 for $300.  However, for the last $10 for $60, I only received 1 coupon.

Heh. GameStop giant banner ad: Star Wars Squadrons 50% off and $39.99 is crossed out next to a huge $19.99.

Scroll down and the game is actually $16.99.

Strange advertising tactic...

Has anyone had luck with an order you placed that doesn't show up in your order history and doesn't show up in their system when you search for order details?

 

Placed an order 12/10 and can't find anything about it other than my order confirmation email. Thankfully, I was able to quickly reorder these Christmas gift items elsewhere to be delivered in time, but I've never had this problem like some have with GameStop.

 

Just hoping that they're backed up and this will eventually come, and I can return it all.

did my first same-day delivery order this morning...be interesting to see if i actually get it at a reasonable hour...

 

originally said i'd get it by 1pm if i place it in 2+ hours...tried to place it and it told me it wasn't available to be delivered to my address...went back and tried to order again and the same message popped up...was about to go back again but all of a sudden an order confirmation page loaded...i get the confirmation email but it's saying i'll get it by 8pm...i'm at work and get off at 7pm so hoping it sticks closer to the original 1pm time...

They know. They just don't care.
