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.


Wii u seems like it's pretty easy to fix. I replaced the triggers, action buttons, and d-pad in 30 minutes or so. Modding it was also ridiculoualy easy. Haven't taken the console apart though

Is free 2-day shipping for Elite pro members no longer valid?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.

Most likely it is a specific item in your cart that is incorrectly coded on their website as disallowing free shipping.  During holiday season this happened on several different titles, e.g. Tetris Effect new and Battlefield V new, which prevented some people from buying (including myself).  Unfortunately, there is no fix.

Sweet, double points when I'm picking up a console and LE? That's not too bad provided they don't screw it up!

This may work to your benefit! Call customer support snd they might actually take some money off. With my RE7 CE it was a week late and they automatically took off $50 and even let me "rent" the game Day 1. All I did was return the sealed copy that came with my CE

Really nice employee scanned a code giving me a 20% bonus on top of my 10% Pro bonus. He let me take a picture of the code.

Was this a code for trade in?

 

Is it generic and multi use?

GameStop tweeted something about double points.

I just received an email about this as well. I assume I would still get points based on my membership at time of purchase as my Elite Pro expires in a few days.

I have a question about console warranties. I purchased a RDR PS4 Pro back when it came out (October 3rd) and got a two-year product protection plan alongside the console purchase. Just recently I discovered the "My Pre-Orders" tab on the Power Up Rewards website and upon going through it I can see the purchase of the console among other Pre-Orders I have made over the last few months. That being said, the console warranty is showing up listed as "Product Replacement Plan - Under $100 Florida Residents" which is not only the wrong amount since the console costed $400, but I also don't live in Florida and the picture of the warranty shows a one year product page.

 

Is this something I should be going back to the store and asking around or do I have to call customer support? Or is it nothing to worry about? I hate that I didn't notice it until now, but don't want to run into issues if/when I replace the system. I still have my original receipt FWIW.

those of you that had rewards points stolen and left with negative points...

 

Im wondering did you also get in on the glitch over the holidays where reward certificates were multi-use and werent being deleted? 

 

wondering if its GS doing this on purpose to 'correct' the effects of the glitch...

Just a brief follow up on having ordered Smash Bros, Mario Maker and Pokken Tournament for Wii U, they all worked after testing them out for about an hour game time each and all 3 came with the case, and Smash had the manual. I am pleasantly surprised by GS today.

Similar experience here. I put Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario for Wii on hold the other day during the B1G1 50% off. When I picked them up, both were in good condition original cases complete with manuals and no disc scratches. Very surprised!

I got an excellent condition CIB Metroid Prime Trilogy but it smells like years of cigar smoke (not cigarette, but cigar). Kinda bummed

If I did have points stolen from my account (15,000), is my best bet having to wait forever on the phone?  It says to email PowerUp@gamestop.com for these issues, but I've heard nothing after three emails since January 8.

Possibly. I was charged the full amount on 12/14 (in store online order) and in my rewards history it shows 0 points. That would be a nice bonus.

Try putting the game, inserts, and case into a Zip-Loc bag with baking soda in it and leave it sealed for about a week.  Barring that, try cleaning the case with rubbing alcohol and leaving it to dry.

I used to run into this with Yu-Gi-Oh cards pretty regularly at garage sales. I usually had really good results by putting them in an empty shoe box with crumbled newspaper for a week or so.

Well what was the minimum to get free elite shipping again? 35?

Yes, calling is the only way I've gotten a response. I emailed repeatedly the first time it happened, to no avail. Calling required about 25 minutes on hold waiting, but at least got a response.

From my experience, email does nothing.  You have call and speak to a rep

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


Wait, what? GS would come out better if nobody ever used their points.

They cancelled my Kingdom Hearts PS4 Pro this morning. I changed my credit card last week, and instead of emailing me saying there was a billing issue or whatever, they just cancelled it. I don't know why I'd expect any less.

They have always done that. I once preordered a game 6 months before release using a gift card in addition to my credit card. I stupidly used the gift card a couple months later in store forgetting I used it in the preorder. Fast forward months later and my CE game was cancelled and all I got was an email stating so. I called customer service and found out the reason to be the used giftcard and therefore I didn't pay the total for the preorder. I need to throw away the gift card once I use it on online preorders as they don't charge till close to release date.

This happened to a friend of mine with the Pokémon Switch. She called and explained the situation, and they re-ordered it and gave her free 1-day shipping.

I doubt there's any stock left of that limited edition item.

That is extremely unfair. I'm sorry. Hopefully a call will somehow help get this fixed.

I checked my points from my purchase yesterday and got the double points all in the same transaction, 60 points per dollar.

Anyone ever had an issue with stores not getting enough of a pre-order?   Went to pick up my RE2 Deluxe Edition pre-order this morning and the store was supposedly short a few copies for Xbox One.   They offered to give me a standard edition and refund $10, but turned it down.  Just wanted a refund and got the DM's number to call and left a message explaining why I'll never pre-order from GS again due to this.   

 

Yeah, I know there's only a $5 difference between the deluxe edition and just buying the DLC through the Microsoft store, but it's the point that I had this pre-ordered and the store didn't get enough.  Although it's starting to make me wonder the employees were just hoarding a few pre-ordered copies for themselves.  If so, hopefully they won't be there much longer.

 

Going to Best Buy in about an hour to pick one up there, as a local one had it in stock and was available for in store pick-up today.
