I've never been able to doubledip my monthly.  But i've not tried it many times.  Is the key to redeem them store first then online or online then store?  Also does time matter?  Like do you have to do it right away?

 

Regarding shipping:  if it comes from a store, it's fucked.  if it comes from Grapevine TX, you have a better chance it doesn't get delayed, or get a used game, etc.   Every time FedEX says "STORE MANAGER" i know i'm fucked.

I went to the store to check on Madden 22 for Series X and it was $12.xx credit and $9.60 cash. Would anyone happen to know what Mario Rabbids is right now? I saw that the price went up quite a bit.

Lol. I do know this, but Madden's TIV wasn't online for a long time and I checked Rabbids this morning and got the same thing I was getting from Madden. I appreciate the heavy lifting tho and getting me the Rabbids value.  8-)

I leave an item in my online cart with the coupon applied. Then I do an in-store purchase. Right when I get the receipt for the in-store purchase, I check out online and the second $5 off goes through. I haven't been able to double dip applying the coupon code later.

Speculation time.  What's the chance Gamestop will have regular, non bundled Series X or PS5 with Disc within the next year, and -fairly- easy to get? 

Asking because I'm really tempted to sell my XB1 and/ or PS4 to Gamestop, so I can upgrade (doubt I'll get a better offer later), but don't want to be stuck with so much credit, so I'd rather buy the new console from them.  Don't want to deal with private sellers / ebay

i don't think anyone knows what will happen with the supply. if the rest of the stores start having consistent stock, there is no way gamestop will keep doing bundles as they won't be able to sell them. your best bet is to hope for a microsoft bundle email then use all your gamestop credit on xbox currency to buy the microsoft bundle.

Yeah, Gamestop did things in a weird way. They cancelled and shipped orders and then charged back the original payment method for $299.99 (instead of $310+tax, so it is cheaper). Everything should work out in the long run (ie. still get two XBOXs for the price of 1), but it's annoying if people want to return an order that doesn't exist/was cancelled. 

 

Not sure how chargebacks would work. With paypal at least the seller has an opportunity to respond. You can show proof you were charged for a cancelled order, but Gamestop can provide a tracking number as well. Not sure who PayPal would try with. I'd probably rather not deal with it and be perma-banned from GS online. 

 

All said and done, it's a total Gamestop way to do things. If they were going to cancel the order, just do it and don't ship anything out/charge anything. If you are going to honor the 2 for 1, just let the original payment go through, don't cancel and re-charge.

Anyone else have a delayed order from a couple weeks ago?

My order from the 19th was supposed to be delivered the 29th and it's been stuck on the same place for over a week
No new status updates since the 28th.

My other 2 orders placed the same day arrived almost a week ago.

Do you know the sender address that the emaill comes from? I signed up early November and got an email from gamestop about signing up. Haven't received an email sin e, and my coupon didn't show up until like November 30th (December coupon).

My coupon came in an E-mail titled Gamestop Powerup Rewards but from Gamestop.com as the E-Mail address. If you use Gmail, it was in my promotions tab and not in the primary. Gmail is weird in that there are some Gamestop E-mails that I get in the primary tab and then there are way more that I get in the promotions tab, even when they pertain to the same subjects. I've gotten shipping notices and order notices in both boxes, and it appears to be random as to which one the E-mails will go into.

You have to own it if you decided to go for the glitch. We all know with GameStop things could go western. They obviously don’t want to give away free consoles. If you received one console and they charged you for it just return it.

if they canceled the orders and still shipped/charged for the items, it will be interesting to see how the return process works if there is no order # related to the items

Agree. I got an email that an item shipped, the order is cancelled under Orders on my GameStop account and I do not have a charge on my credit card. None of this makes any sense.

I am happy to return to the store but with a cancelled order, will they turn me away claiming the item came from somewhere else?

If they don’t charge you and the order doesn’t exist you might as well keep it. I assume they will include an invoice but for how much I don’t know.

Does anyone else have a store that refuses to take 6th gen trades anymore? They are on the website but they always tell me their system refuses to load those values, and that the online values are "outdated". I haven't tried going to my other store yet, but can anyone confirm their local store is still taking 360 games?

Yes, certain stores have decided not to take in older titles.. I have one in my area.

Well one of my 2 gamestop orders from black friday says delivered but I never received it  :wall:

I gave it a couple days in case there was an error and some delay from USPS but no such luck. I have a security camera so it was definitely not stolen.

Several of my orders said shipped with delivery dates of Wed, Thurs and Friday, but now all say waiting pickup. Now another one that I never received any info for just arrived. Why do they even bother with tracking info at this point.

Is GameStop unable to do anything once you place an order? I asked them to cancel an order many times but they said they couldn't. I was hoping to return them to store once they got delivered but it got returned back to GameStop Warehouse when it was in the FedEx near my house (processing refund now). Now an order from the 21st is "Awaiting Carrier Pickup" after tracking info were shown a few days ago. My trade credits have been stuck in limbo for 2 weeks now. I had to use cash to pay during Black Friday sales. :cry:

And this is what I am afraid of now. I made a purchase on 11/23 that is still showing "awaiting pick up" and I'm afraid to just tell them to refund me on account that I paid with almost $190 in trade credit.
I don't want the trade credit to be a casualty of my poor judgement of buying a TV through them.

I thought most GameStop orders were FedEx.


For USPS, sign up for informed delivery so you know all the letters & packages you should be getting each day.
