Looks like only the 8gb one went down. Why would you ever buy an 8gb one lol?

My local GS only had the white one in stock. I didn't want to order it online because I wanted to check the condition in-person before I bought it. The 8GB is a non-issue if you just use an external HDD.

 

*EDIT*

This is all besides the point. I'm asking a simple yes or no question: does Gamestop do price adjustments?

Because regardless of which version you buy you will need an external hard drive,so might as well save $30

You could try asking, but I'm pretty sure you could also return if its preowned (not sure about refurb and/or the fact it's a console, only ever done it with games) and rebuy. Hasnt been over 7 days.

I have had success with new products bought in store, haven't tried with pre-owned or items purchased online. I would guess if it's within the return period they could offer a gift card for the difference.

Hackers have compromised GameStop
If you are sitting on points you make yourself a target
Use your points on games or digital cards
Do your best to turn points into credit
Aka 9.97 No mans sky into $12 credit. Used a few 10k easy transfer
Same with $14.99 crew 2 ...easy 15 to $15

Anything to substantiate that claim other than a few panicked posts? They've had credit card info compromised last year, but I don't see any reason to believe there's been a recent vulnerability.

Probably a matter of not knowing how.


Plenty of people know how and simply choose to not share or speak of this knowledge because of past events.

What's actually involved in cashing out the points into Google cards etc, do they need your credentials or just your power up number because that's pretty weird that all of you got hit

Does anyone know if the 7 day money back guarantee  starts the day tracking shows your item has arrived at your door or the day you ordered online? I got one of the $80 new 3ds units but the shipping says it'll be 8 days.  As far as I'm aware the 30 day guarantee is only for replacement rather than your money back, which is going to get a bit hairy given the obscurity of non-XL sized "New" 3DS units at Gamestop and in the US in general.

It's all an attempt to get people to use their points. I claim conspiracy.

Got a call today saying I could pick up Kingdom Hearts III the night before AND if I came in early I would be more likely to get the fabric poster... Umm I should get that regardless of when I show up since it is a pre-order bonus and not some "first come first serve" type thing. Inb4 they give it away to somebody else.

Has anyone seen any Bendy's for the Switch in store? None near me so far.

It has been online for order for a few days and I was waiting for an in store option because I don't get charged tax on trade credit if I buy in store.

I believe it is from when it is marked as “delivered”

I've heard that stores haven't gotten restocked on the Switch version yet, just PS4 and Xbox One. There are none available anywhere in stores looking at the site. I'd imagine if stores get restocked it'll be within the next week. My interest has been peaked on this game now though so I also want to pick up a copy on Switch.

This happened to me in August. Someone redeemed all my saved points on 6 $10 psn cards. I didn't even bother to call corporate. It's not worth the hassle.

you should get your points back my friend. the call took maybe 10 minutes, and you are the rightful heir to those sweet psn bucks. that backlog isn't going to grow itself ;)

The psn codes are redeemed. Wont they just tell me they cant prove I didn't use them. I thought about contacting sony and saying those codes were stolen hoping maybe the psn account that redeemed them would get banned but they were most likely sold on ebay. I have a feeling it was related to the hack. Honestly it's my fault for not changing my password. I'll probably try but I'm worried since they'll just shut my account down and I have about 55k points currently.

Ive pre-ordered dozens of games from gamestop over the last 3 years. I've only actually got the pre-order bonus items I was supposed to get once. I actually got the poster for smash ultimate.

My guess is the store is just letting people know its in their best interest to get it at the 9pm. I know my store got like 80 of the fabric posters. The posters were while supplies last. Now, we have way more posters than preorders, but you're store might not have been as lucky.

32GB is not really enough any way.  I got the 8GB because 1) I liked the white color (personally, I think the scratches are less noticeable on the white one); and 2) I'd rather save the money because the extra $50 (at the time) was not worth the extra few GBs, considering I'd need an external anyway.

Also the white one will probably end up being more 'rare' and have a higher value as time goes on - if youre into that sort of thing.

The clerk tried telling me that it was from date shipped and I told them that was impossible. 
After a few seconds of staring at each other, he said he would do it as a one time favor.
The store I went to was a Prestige Store so you would think they would care more about customer service.
Obviously, ymmv.

I never understand why some GameStop clerks act like it's a privilege to be a GameStop customer. Such a shitty experience.

There is one Gamestop that I go to sometimes that just does not understand their own return policy. It's always the same lady, too--I swear she's the only person that works there. I've returned some new games before and every single time she gives me a hard time about it being beyond 7 days. The problem with that is that is the used return policy, not new. I have argued; I have shown the return policy on the receipt; I have shown the return policy as stated on the website. This woman just will not listen and always pulls the "I'll do you this favor just this once" bit. I struggle with people being objectively wrong and not recognizing it, so these types of situations drive me crazy!

As a former Gamestop ASM I can tell you that a lot of Gamestop employees love saying things like this or "Should have pre-ordered" when they sell out of some obscure release that they only were sent 1-2 copies.

That is one of my biggest pet peeves with companies. I hate when they pull that, and act like they are doing you this huge favor by honoring the company policy.

Is free 2-day shipping for Elite pro members no longer valid? Been trying since last night to buy something and it still comes up as $11. I had no problem with getting free 2 day on an order I placed a couple days ago.

I've seen that a few times, and there are two possible solutions:

 

1) Log out then back in and try to check out. If you don't see Free 2-Day Shipping, try again (up to 3-4 times).

2) Wait a few hours because Gamestop's website is archaic and prone to crapping out.

Wonder how that works for preorders. Have both Kingdom Hearts Deluxe and PS4 Pro pre-ordered. Already paid for both. That's nearly 30k points right there, but I feel like they fight somehow screw people out of that if they pre-ordered something.

I don't think you get points on pre-orders until you pick it up after release, IIRC, so you should be good

Anyone pick up a WiiU for $80? Condition? I'm curious if I should pick up the one I have on hold or wait for CL deals.
