God I hate this company. I'm trying to use a $25 off online coupon from a canceled order...I'm elite pro and I'm still getting charged $10 shipping for a $35 game. 1/3 the price of the game? Really? Tried adding to the order, no dice. Tried doing pick up at store but the website says it's mandatory to add a GPG to the game if store pickup is chosen...and coupons seems to be disabled for that option. How in the hell are they still in business. /rant

It's been reported in the past but $25 online cert coupons don't work on anything (never worked/error). GS never fixed the problem so you will have to call CS and get your points back.

I just redeemed for an online $25 coupon and the code was not valid. I had to call the 800 number, 30 minutes later had my points back. The rep told me that it is a common problem and even recommended I didn't redeem for another because if it didn't work to get my points back would be even more of a hassle for me to get back... He also said there is obviously some kind of recurring issue with these online only coupons. But yes, the 800 number will help you out.

Mine was a CS issued coupon for a canceled WIS order, as opposed to a points purchased one. I don't remember anyone having issues with those but who knows. My issue is the massive shipping cost when it's supposed to be free, but I know how broken the website and app are.

The limit is 4 items of a SKU per 30 rolling day window. So you should be fine. With accessories, you can trade all 4 at the same time/store.


Hi. Do they test the move controller? The battery is dead. Would they hit with a fee and how much?

From my experience, they almost never give any advance heads-up about the rotating 4 (or 3 or 2) for xx sales that they keep doing, so it's a matter of just crossing your fingers and hoping that it shows up week after week.  4/10 would seem to be next on the docket for whenever they crossover again, but realistically, it could be anything.

They usually just play around with buttons on controllers

Most employees don't care to check the move controllers beyond clicking the buttons.

Let us know where you are located / trading at, I dont want to end up buying a pre-owned move controller and end up with yours.

Edit: It wouldn't matter if someone buys that online since there is no way to tell which store ends up shipping your product. :wall:

Confirmed, I've traded in multiple Move controllers in the past and they just check the buttons and the overall physical condition. Most stores only check newer controllers on the tester such as 360/PS3/PS4/XB1.

Are we expecting a stealth bump to coincide with pro day this weekend?

Next weekend would make more sense considering Gamestop has typically had a stealth bump during Memorial Day weekend.

I would be thrilled if it was on the weekend of the 24th, landing safely outside of the 30-day trade window from last month.

It depends who is working. I seen manager keep the cases when getting traded in if they know what's going for.

Anyway, anyone know if u place a item on hold online, they decline it even if u know that they have it?

I called as i was entering the hold online. The guy said he has it, a minute later he says oh, its on hold already for someone else .

Once someone place a hold online, doesnt it remove from the website stock checker?

No, it still shows up on the website stock checker. You'd think they would change it so that it works that way.

Count me in as one of those that aren't getting points for their trade-ins. No issues getting points for purchase the following couple of days.

I decided I'm going to buy something every time I trade in. Even if it's a $5 PSN code. Hopefully that makes it all work out with points.

I did that. Ended up not getting points for either.

So it doesn’t clarify but will the $50 GC with Xbox console purchase only count towards new ones?

Downgrading my X to a 2TB Gears of War S when I need the space more than the graphics , and profiting $100 , would be hard to pass up.
