Can confirm the 5/$50 works in store, and the 4/$20 is might be one of those season-long promos. (I always check the last gen for some complete games I could use for the shelf  :beer:)

Good find since the game was delisted from the 3DS eShop.

A couple people have mentioned getting trade banned and not knowing why.

So unless you track trades in excel, or whatever, then it's hard to say what could have been the reason. If it's not 4 copies of the same game, going over the $500 cash limit, or going over the $2k trade credit limit, it may have just been somebody looking into your account and not liking what they saw (if you're a regular trader).

I used to when I was trading every month, but I traded ~$1900 last September (all trade credit, tracked with excel), then ~$100 this January, and then nothing until today. Never went over 2k or went with cash, so I guess somebody just didn't like what they see last September?

I know why I got trade banned. I got he manager's attention when I tried to get the trade in promo on a game that was OOS. I looked up to pick another one from the display and that's when he warned me about not doing it. He must have passed on what I was doing to his AM. It was during COD WWII and Destiny trade promos. I cancelled the preorders because I wanted to buy something with the trade credit. The AM didn't like that very much. He told me that I wasn't going to get the bonus anymore and got the ban. I missed out on some huge 3DS games trade in deals. They were trading in for more than the retail price. I could have avoided it because I still had some trade in credit left over in my card.

When did they start resealing display copies?    Bought the last copy of Bayonetta/Vanquish XB1 bundle the store had.   While looking for a game to use the 30% off of(ended up getting Wipeout Omega Collection for $12.59), the employee went into the backroom and resealed the Bayonetta/Vanquish game.

Same thing happened today. Guy said it was his day off, so I assume someone must have left or called out. They also closed a bunch of the neighboring stores, so when I went back, there was a line of people.

Is there also some sort of irony that it also has a prestige sign?

They're very short staffed at some stores with absolutely no backup. My store has one guy who works almost every day from open to close and I genuinely feel bad for him because the only other employees they can get have terrible availability and their DM doesn't allow more than single coverage. They have no option but to just close the store to get any type of break or even use the restroom.

Since Gamestop started letting people back in the store last summer I've only seen two people working there, and only one at a time. A sign like that isn't surprising. Enjoy your lunch.

Monthly coupon doesn’t work with dotd and most promos period.

You can typically use them with weekly sale items but sometimes you can only do it in-store.  It's so annoying because of how it's advertised that you can use it on "everything"

They're understaffed.  I live in a major metro area and they're screwing their staff over here.  Yes, it's frustrating, but it's not their fault

That makes sense, sucks for the employee . I always wondered why the lone associates in my store are so trusting that they’ll legit go to the back for 2-5 minutes to search for a game or accessory and leave no one outside to monitor customers. Feels like a bad idea but I guess they have no choice due to poor managing/scheduling

Damn I just drove by my local store and it had posted signs about store closing and everything 30% off. Do closing stores still take returns and trade ins?

No, I have a local store that is closing here and I was going to do a return and trade, prior to knowing that they were closing, and they said to go to the next nearest store for trades or returns.

I was annoyed when I couldn't pick up a pre-order/, but I was mad at the company.  Felt sorry for the employee that he had to shut down the store so he could take a meal break

On a side note...imagine what happens if they raise minimum wage to $15 an hour. Think pandemic was bad. What will close if this happens?

 

One employee in store at a time doesn't seem safe for them but gamestop doesn't seem to care about such things anyway

The Chewyfication isn't going so smoothly thus far. If you had to compare the whining CAGers that show up in this thread and entitled gamer man-children to pet-owners, how would you accurately describe them... at least pet owners can claim to care about something besides themselves.
