One of my order on the gamestop website said it is awaiting pick up from ups and then when I searched the tracking usps said it departed shipping partner facility so I am kinda confuse with whats happening.

Sometimes the online status will 'say waiting for pickup' until the moment the package smacks against your door. Sometimes it STILL says that days after your order was delivered. The website isn't very good.

Final Fantasy 7 Integrade comes with a steel book if you preorder it, is that in store only or should I get one if I preorder and have it shipped to me?

When I add it to the cart I don’t see any steel book added, not sure how GameStop does bonus items like that.

Does anyone know why Mass Effect Legendary Edition is showing up as $47.99 in google searches for Gamestop.com but $59.99 when you click the link?

 

Was there a sale recently or something?

Maybe that's the preowned price which isn't visible on the site yet?

I just tried for my missing coin, they said contact the store to get it, I’m pretty sure individual stores can’t just add points to your account.

Correct, you got a phone agent trying to get you off the phone ASAP to improve their numbers.

Man, I thought I was the only one.  I finished the first, and have the third sitting ready to go....just need to find the second!

Physical copies of all the previous games went out of print just after IV released last October. Luckily I ordered 1-3 from Amazon in Sept. and got apparently some of the last sealed US copies.

I'm just curious, why are you being so rude to him? He obviously didn't know that. But yes, Deals of the Day are online only but you didn't need to viciously attack him over a misunderstanding.

Stores can now pricematch the GameStop Deal of the Day price in store. It's the same procedure they would use for BB, Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc.

Hmm, so my orders that have been stuck at "awaiting carrier pickup" with FedEx are NOW showing as being shipped via USPS.

Sure, ok.

Gamestop shipping is so weird. My order is also still on "awaiting carrier pickup" by ups and when I checked ups tracking website there was no package info and then when I checked usps website it said "Departed Shipping Partner Facility, USPS Awaiting Item"

Whether they ship one or the other the only way to know for sure is when the tracking number actually works when it ships in my experience.

FedEx guy never showed up so they probably had to take their orders to the post office

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is back in-stock (for the time being).


Why is this rare now?

It's out of print and the characters were added to smash bros increasing demand.

Is this anything like when they suddenly had hundreds of “used” Metroid trilogy in stock at over msrp a few years back?

It's not really "rare" (it sold over 2 million) but it's more of a niche title, relatively speaking, that is now out of print and the characters have been added to Smash.  Nintendo being Nintendo didn't manufacture more this year, despite knowing that demand would increase after the characters were added to Smash.  I'll never understand them.

I know this has been covered, but does the monthly reward certificate work on $5 eshop gift cards or just $10 ones? Thanks in advance.

The $5 ones they print on a receipt at the register work, I don't think I've seen a physical $5 on in stores so have never tried those.

Might be able to find XB2 discounted at Wally World. One in my area has it for 21...another at 3cents (but that ship has sailed on that).

That happened for xenoblade 1 and Metroid but nope not remotely close to the same thing. Those got reprinted and resold as used to skirt MSRP and get the higher used pricing while keeping up the appearance of being hard to get. It fooled people for quite a while.

Store inventory on the website, for the moment, is back off -1 values.

 

Found a complete copy of Persona Endless Night Collection for $7 after the monthly $5.  Not much else around me.

Found nothing around me so it may have just been a copy coming into stock.
