So did anyone get any of the good handheld consoles if they came back in stock? I didn't check those before I had to go to the kid's swim team crap...

 

They had hundreds of Pokemon in stock, I'm not going down that rollercoaster

How can you tell how many they had in stock? I only can tell if it's like "1-5 left" in the cart. 

 

I decided to give a few pokemon games a shot - worst case I return them and shift some credit between trade cards.  :oldman:

Assassin's creed? Aren't ubisoft titles pretty much worthless. I wouldn't buy any of them.

I was going to trade in 4 copies on each of the 3 consoles (PS4, Switch, XBONE) and put the trade credit towards MetroiDread (each copy traded in for $5 before any promos) but all 12 of my orders were cancelled

Oh trade fodder... I guess that's a good use. But I don't want to ever step foot into a gamestonk again in my life now that they have online returns.

Most stores don’t even carry vita stock anymore, so you’d have to take a crapshoot and visit a store and hope for the best

Two of my 3 Assassin's Creed orders have finally been canceled. The only one that hasn't is the Switch copy, because it's currently "out of stock". I'm sure they'll remember to cancel it at some point.

 

Edit: Well, never mind, not 2 hours later, and I got my last cancelation. The reason this time was "Sorry, due to high demand, we had to cancel your order", rather than the "Unfortunately, the item isn't available" BS excuse they gave me the first couple times.

Curious how they sent out different types of emails that say the same thing essentially. Surely, we'll all be getting coupons or something as compensation now.  :pray:   :roll:

Anyone recently preorder, how long did it take to get your codes? It says up to 2 business days but used to be the day of.

Was able to return the 3 bundled games and controller for the disc version of the ps5 I ordered no questions asked. Probably helped that the employee who did it was newish and not too bright. I've taken advantage of her multiple times already lol.

FYI anyone interested in the $19.99 and under %20 off sale, I was going to get 2 $19.99 games online, but with the discount it went under $35 , so no free shipping. Decided to add another game for free shipping and pleasantly found out deal is 2 or more games are 20% off. Wound up getting 5 19.99 preowned games, and all 5 got the 20% discount.

Picked up the Robotics notes and Dash double pack on sale for ps4 and switch $17.99 + 20% off,tack on another $19.99 and under PO and it was $14 and change for each. Seems like that might be the sweet price for this game.

I dont know if this is the right place to ask but does Gamestop charge you upfront when you make a pre-order through their website?

I guess I'm at the age where I'll need the young kids to explain this internet web technology so me. Using Chrome - how does one look at the API? F12? /oldfogey

About 1 week before the item ships. So for those that preordered with a promo - will still be taxed on the shipping!

Interesting... wonder if pre-orders will be reduced on pickup! Or just an artifact of a price match script that still needs tweaking....

How long do you have for trading in a G2L game. Planning to do it for Mario Golf

It says 48 hours after launch, but not sure what time is considered as launch
 

Also, is my receipt supposed to have some code for doing this

If that's everywhere, Walmart instore should be 41.88 to price match.

App is finkey, sometime you need to close it fully to have your order pop up. Pre-orders should show up under Orders as Active Pre-Orders , then your normal Order history should be below.

No kidding - the correct way to word it would be more like :

 

"Was able to return the 3 bundled games and controller for the disc version of the ps5 I ordered no questions asked. Found a helpful employee that cared more about helping a customer out than metrics. I've filled out positive surveys for her multiple times already lol."  :grouphug:

Yes, the item will ring up as normal with tax and trade credit will be treated like any other form of payment.

Games released on Friday need to be "returned" by Sunday at close.

Random question for you GS regulars. My PS5 Ratchet and Clank bundle arrived today. Except it was missing Ratchet and Clank despite the game being listed on the packing slip. I called support and reported it, and they said they'd get a replacement out within 7 business days.

Given how helpful support for GS traditionally is, what are the odds my game actually ends up arriving?

If you keep following up you will eventually be made whole. How many follow up attempts it takes varies
