Is this sale over for in-store? I don't see it in the new weekly ad.


It said till the 31st. I have no idea why it's not valid online. That's literally just another sale lost from me.

April fools is dumb. I hope they aren’t Fuck ing around with peoples. I myself would love to see the return of *exclusive* physical rewards. Even if it was just one day a year.

Wait. The 4 for $20 isn't valid online? Holy crap. Gamestop failing everywhere lately.

Did they change that recently? Last time I tried a promotion like this, granted it was the 4 for $10 and it was like a year and a half ago, it worked online.

Now it's my turn to ask a dumb question...I never thought I would be in this position. 

 

What's an example of physical rewards?

I got an Uncharted mug back when they had physical rewards. Not sure of other more worthwhile rewards that they used to have.

i saw a preowned RDR2 steelbook yesterday. it was in great shape, too.


Thing with that though is the first print run of the $60 version of RDR 2 at Walmart had the same Steelbook as the $80/$100 versions.

Thanks, I have no idea why I couldn't figure that out.   Hopefully there's a few good surprises in there.

He is incorrect as you noted.  The 4 or 3 for xx almost never work online now.  I'm not certain when it started, but I believe at some point in the latter half of 2018.

 

There were several glitches during the 4 for xx deals in the spring that probably had something to do with it.  During the 4/10, when using the Elite membership, games were 1 dollar each online.  Combine that with orders being broken up to be shipped from multiple stores, and Gamestop found themselves shipping thousands of 1 dollar-valued packages. 

 

They likely lost a good deal of money from that.  It's also why a lot of their 5 and under dollar games stopped being available online, I'd assume.

I managed to take advantage of my Elite Pro membership one last time before it expired on Sunday by picking up Onimusha, Borderlands: Handsome Collection and Dragon Quest Builders for the PS4 on the B2G1 sale.

Silly question, but If I want to move a pre-order, do I do it at the original store or the new store?

You have to get a refund at the original store to take it to a new store.  They can't move pre-order money around from store to store.  Likewise, you can only cancel a pre-order at the store that has your pre-order.

So their page is still posting by saying they have Switches.  I think this is just a big troll job by GS.

 

For a company with such a poor rep among the loud masses, this is a bad move.

 

EDIT: When I posted this, the physical rewards section was blank.  They hadn't even put the joke there, yet they were posting about it telling people they were in limited quantities.

Nevermind, this is real dumb. I do have a screenshot of their original test around 10am using a placeholder image of an alien bank: https://imgur.com/a/YDgsveU

Is this YMMV? I've had workers offer to call other stores to move my pre order to their store.

That works, but it requires the employee to know what he's/she's doing.

So you actually lose points when you redeem one of these or are they going to actually have some cheap item in store that they plan to hand out? Still really confusing prank...

They all just come up as sold out when you click on them. It's in pretty poor taste considering people were already salty that they nixed physical rewards.

Oh they finally uploaded the joke.  For the first 30 mins or so after they said something about switches on their Facebook page, and when I posted in here, the page was blank. 

 

Gamestop couldn't even troll right.
