Is it just pro? I have a slim

I manage to get $215 on their last trade bump. It was crazy because I was expecting it for $175 when I saw their console value with the bump. Glad it was that price as I manage to hit even when I bought it as a bundle. If you want to know the bump, I think your best bet is to call them and see if they have a promo on it.

I traded my Slim in late last week for $242.50 (192.50 + $50 promo) so if the Pros are still getting it, I imagine that's the case for Slims as well.

Ca you put a screen protector over it to make it less noticeable?


It has one on and it is still noticeable. I'm going to try my luck this weekend.

I traded in a lite that has a pretty noticeable deep scratch in the screen, but only at certain angles. I thought he would refurb or deny, but he took it at full value, I think he was distracted telling me what I had to buy at the time for the "right" to purchase a switch from them. He first told me I had to buy a game and then I guess thought better of it and was trying to push a warranty instead of the game. this was earlier in the year before the OLED was a thing and when Switches were more scarce.

Can the $10 gamecoin be used on Xbox/Sony/Nintendo shop cards?

Edit..or even yearly subs to Nintendo?

Edit..can confirm that it can be used on eshop credit.

Took a chance on Naruto Ninja Storm Legacy when it came back in stock hoping to get a Steelbook. Guess I should've been more specific. Don't think this was a FedEx issue as it was packaged in a cardboard box that wasn't damaged.

I have an email that still mentions that the promos for Xbox, Switch and PS4 trade ins are still going. Calling and asking will not help because the promo only shows up when they scan your Pro membership to do the trade in.

So I did end up getting the $10 gamecoin for Far Cry 6 despite returning the game unopened.

Going to see what I can use I on. I feel 😈 doing so..but Fuck it..you gave it to me gamestop.

What trade promo is going on? I wanted to trade Diablo III for $27.50 with Pro so I could get the collection and basically pay $15 for Diablo II. But I got an extra 40% bonus on top of Pro bringing it to $37.50.

Id say not very often, but it does happen every now and then.

- A mario kart 64 was some game boy advance game instead but actually marked mario kart 64 lol

- some poster in here ordered some power Rangers figure and ended up with a Mario Kart Live Switch Luigi 
- I received someones order from Michigan one time which was different to what I ordered
- Ive had flat out missing games before from orders.

Rare for me, but it’s happened to members on this site. I ordered xbox one Zx collection and got mega man legacy collection instead. Just take it back and ask for return or replacement. Helps if you have receipt or packing slip.

You have to wonder if Gamestop's marketing and operations departments ever talk at all. Or even understand the other group exists. 

 

I can't wait to have to call in/chat/email to get my future gamecoins that will then show up a day before expiring. Trash.

How often do people get the wrong game from GameStop online?

Rarely.  I've ordered tens of thousands of dollars worth of games online from them over the years (modern and retro).  I remember the wrong ones:

 

Ordered Forza Horizon 4, got Bejewled 3

Ordered Killzone Mercenary for Vita, Got KZ:SF for PS4

Ordered Super Mario Party for Switch and received Troll and I cart with a fake SMP sticker on it (with Switch games, you should always check the 4 letters on the sticker and the back of the cart to make sure they match up)

Ordered GTA IV Complete and received regular GTA IV

 

 

That's it.  Each time, CS told me to keep the wrong game, and I received the correct game very quickly.

 

I have also received maybe 5ish empty cases. I also received the discs quickly after calling customer service.  Either I'm incredibly lucky or this stuff is overblown.  I have received far more defective games, but even then it's still fairly low.

 

Once, they sent me 10 free copies of Mario Kart DD.  I had ordered them (like 5ish years ago when there were no purchase limits on retro) but they canceled because there was insufficient money on card (I placed 2 different orders in a successive period before I realized they had a delay in card holds.  I called CS a few hours later to cancel the order and remove the hold, which they did (I was doing this to convert TiC to cash).  They sent the games anyway.  I called CS to return them, and they said they couldn't do a return because they couldn't find an order associated with the games.  I felt like Marty Crane when he tried to return the money to the bank in Frasier.

Think I got a copy of Spinter Cell: Conviction instead of Splinter Cell: Blaclist once. It was part of a 5 for 10 deal. CS just refunded me like $3. 

Once ordered a Mario backpack that was on sale with a few games, got that in one shipment and a random playstation backpack in another shipment. Worked out cause the Mario was for my youngest nephew and my older nephew wanted the Playstation one.

Interesting. Mind sharing the email? Curious what the verbiage looks like. When was it sent?

i couldn't figure out where the GOTG preorder dlc code was and finally found it on the original preorder receipt from gamestop. Didn't realize they would give you the code before you picked up the actual game.

I didn't even realize there was one, until you pointed this out. So, thank you. 

 

And of course the code is totally borked and I wasn't able to convert it to Xbox or whatever your are supposed to do.

Check your Far Cry 6 Game Coin; my expiration date was changed to November 8th (in app) or November 9th (website).  Yesterday night it was showing 10/27 on the website.

Been a couple years since I ordered from Gamestop.com, two dumbquick questions:

 

1. How often do online preorders get release date delivery?

 

2. Did they ever get the online certificates working (I don't mean for preorders, just in general)?
