Agreed. It's a weak statement to argue that the most affordable system relative to the market is not affordable.


You’re looking at the market as traditional video games but I’m looking at it as entertainment. For those looking for gifts, $60 tablets with mostly poor quality, advertisement-filled games look pretty good next to a $200 Switch. I guess there’s Super Mario Run and Mario Kart Live.

i don't know how you're going to compare tablet games to console games

You can use the $5.00 monthly PUR coupon online. But I’m pretty sure that you cannot use the point redemption coupons online.


So all of the online coupons doesn’t work ? I saw there is $5, $10 and $15 online coupon available.

Anyone ever have an issue with a giftcard order going through and then receiving an email saying they couldn't process payment? Their giftcard's original as being what I paid and then is now $0, but is asking me to update payment for my order...

You could try calling. I just let mine run out the clock and get canceled after about a week.

Hm... given my past history with their CS lines, I'd rather save this as a last resort. But with just letting it cancel, I doubt i'll get my giftcard funds back- already got screwed once.

Happened to me last week. They increased the tax I was being charged after the fact so it wouldn't process the payment cause the gift card didn't have enough on it. I contacted their support twice who said the email was a mistake the order was processing, then the order was canceled. Gift card funds were returned but still annoyed.

So also word to the wise, gamestop may be charging people more than they agreed to after the fact. Was only like $1.50 but noticed my confirmation email listed one number for tax but the website order details was higher. My gift card had no other funds so they couldn't but if I has paid with a card I wouldn't have ever noticed.

Note, I used my $5 monthly coupon in that order (lost forever now) so that could have been part of what triggered the issue ok their site.

Ah... yup, you're right. My order price increased by 30 cents... and what do you know, you can use the giftcards on it. Jesus, what a piece of shit website. 

 

EDIT* also used my monthly PUR on it, so that's gone.

Has anyone gotten shipping notification from the Dual Sense Charge Station from Feb. 25th? Was able to order one but when I check status it says "Awaiting Product Availability". I used trade credit online. First time I've ever done that, have seen horror stories so I'm a little worried.

I'm going to call later but does anyone know if they will take in an Xbox One S that doesn't make it to make it to the home screen? It powers and displays but even after trying the offline update, it won't get past 50% on the setup screen before throwing up the "Something went wrong" screen.

Typically they will but will charge a refurb fee. I traded in a PS4 Pro that had a blinking blue light last month.

Thanks, I believe you still get the trade in bonus even if they charge the refurb fee, so I imagine this is the best I'm ever going to do.

Might be a little late in posting this but did anyone else notice their wish list has returned? Just saw this happen after about a 6 month+ hiatus.

Do you remember what the refurb fee was? $40 or $60?

Refurb fee depends on the system, I think it was $50-60 though since I got about $170 in credit for the PS4 pro.

So -sorry, just clarifying- an Xbox One 500gig that's listed as trading for $75 right now will get a $50 bonus? So $125, total?

I'm assuming that's credit only, not if you choose cash?

Thanks for the info.

Yes, the bonus is credit only.

This is what happened to me. I thought I had enough on my rewards card to cover my Series S. Well they put two 1.79 charges on orders after the fact that dropped me to 298.79. So I didn't cover the order. Now I have to wait for them to return my funds to my rewards card. I charged it with my credit card and will return / rebuy with trade credit when and if it shows up. The lady on the phone said I had an amount on my trade card I cannot see. This sucks.

Magic finally gets a GameStop sale now that they can't keep Pokemon in stock and the amount of MTG inventory the stores here in STL have is pretty much zero.

New. It’s a universal sale across retailers. 35% off.

So I finally encountered the dreaded trade limit exceeded ban for the first time on one of the accounts I use. I track all my trades so I’m not sure what caused it. I hit 1,925 in trades between 1/29-2/22 and today was the first trade I attempted. Hopefully it’s just a 30 day.
