I find it pretty sad that he comes here every couple of months to do the same thing over and over. Saying he has copies of threads that were previously deleted shows he has nothing else to do other than this. Maybe he should move on, but he most likely wont.

He has a vendetta with the users here and for some reason the Gamestop subreddit.

Two words: HDMI cables.

I love the managers in my area.  Went into a store that had the $5 football machine that counts as a system for the 25% off 2 games.  He started looking something up in the system, grabs a ladder to pull down a VR headset and says "You should get this instead, its only $1.97".  So yeah, paid $2 to save $26.25.  

 

Here's the link to the locator for the $1.97 VR headset:

So these guys are planning their own funeral?  I guess it may be too late for Gamestop at this point anyway and Gamestop's problems are huge, but if my company's stock just lost 35% yesterday, I might not be so eager to help everybody game the system and speed up the demise of the place I work.

 

Your issue, however, illustrates one of many of the problems with Gamestop in the first place.  They keep creating these crazy deals and promos that allow people (and employees) to take advantage of them and have no system in place to make sure they aren't getting hosed until after the fact and they start banning people for abuse, etc.  Virtually every other retailer learned long ago to have better safeguards for sales and promos.

I think everyone reading this topic not only already knows that, but wonders why you feel the need to point it out.

Another instance of TIV in store being different than the app:

MLB The Show 19 shows as $20 base in the app, but it’s $22 in store.

Don't usually do this because I read past posts for information, but the combination of never shopping at Best buy and this soon-to-be-banned guy who has nothing better to do with his life has made it difficult to find relevant information.

I received a $10 best buy reward email out of the blue. Was wondering if there was a good trade from Best buy to GameStop right now.

They are probably happy to get clearance stuff off the books. I worked at Best Buy for several years (ages ago) and we were hit with charges from the company for each end of life item we had in stock. End of life stuff also affected how much new release product hit the store so it was beneficial to get rid of it as quick as possible. The employee was probably smart and knows what they need to get off the books. I would be shocked if each store did not have some sort of clearance metric, but hey Game Stop...

He says the exact same thing every time he shows up for 12 minutes and then gets banned again.  He uses the same verbage and makes the same callbacks.

I honestly don't understand how any long-time members don't recognize it's him with his first post every time he comes back.  He might as well just recopy his bullet points.

This is the first I've heard of that happening with anyone besides pepsiman.

Bought a PS Vita for the Memorial Day promo & customer service lady won’t give me the certificate for that. Anyone else had an issue?

Also getting the no more points for trades (April 22 & 25) song & dance despite getting points for all of my trades in late May & early June.

I thought that was for preowned games, not hardware?  Could be wrong.

Going by my store telling me it worked for hardware also but supervisor for PUR is supposed to be giving me 25k points within the hour.

And supposedly I got the points for my two trades, but the dates don’t really match up. Not going to push it as it was for $56 in cash trades & I’m more concerned with the rewards cert to spend on Days Gone.

If you can PM Need for Speed Payback for XB1 at Best Buy for $9.99, you can trade in for $8 base plus $5 bonus.

Your right, it was only for pre-owned games and collectibles.

Well my store told me wrong then but I still got the points to make a cert, using it for Days Gone.

Thanks, found a store that had one of these instock.

Picked up RDR2 and Sekiro. I used a $15 cert, but it didn't maximize my savings. Ended up only saving about $7 since it took the $15 off then then 25% on Sekiro. Subtotal was about $60 after all discounts.

I was hoping to get a couple Switch games, but their stock was limited.

Finally got a competent customer service rep and got 10k points for spending $50 on Memorial Day, and points for a $90 trade in.

Just saw on Cheddar TV gamestop is a record store in a digital age. They are looking into becoming a esports company now. I see no chance for gamestop at all if companies like toysrus closed nation wide.

Two questions that I suspect I know what the answers are, but I figured I ask:

1. If I bought something last Friday, am I considered one day too late for the 7-day return period if I were to try today?

2. If not, I used the $25 memorial day bonus coupon on my purchase. Would I be able to do an exchange or somehow be able to reuse the value of that certificate again?
