Seriously F Gamestop they've eaten up my discount codes twice now, and every time I call they are always too busy to answer.

I highly doubt it.

Because they have to get a certain % of games sold with a GPG or they could face employment issues.  They also have trade and pre-order goals too.  Also, bonuses are tied to store income, and returns reduce that, so some managers will be less than thrilled to process returns.

 

It's a crappy system and unfair to employees, but that's how it is for them.  What you can do are positive surveys.  They do help them and push your store closer to prestige (which means a quarterly prestige day with b2g1 free on PO'd games)

I was more asking why empty out the store of $14.99 games.

Glad to see that the Thinkgeek coupon worked on Sony/Microsoft giftcards. Don't forget that you have about 2 weeks left (9/15) to use that coupon...if you got one.

I saw somebody post something about guaranteed $59.99 TIC within 48 hours of release, for Gears of War 5, but couldn't find anything on the website or on the trade offer page.

Anybody else get an email or something regarding this? Need to convert points to credit and this is about as good as it gets.

Picked mine up last night & not showing yet. Will call customer service if I don’t get it by the time I get back from PAX.

I got offered the coupon today before I had even picked it up.  I went to a different store than the one I had pre-ordered from and he asked me if I wanted to use my coupon.

So I redeemed a points preowned cert thinking I could use it online (got a Wii U combo) how easy/successful/time consuming is it to contact Supoort for a points refund?

I think he meant why buy 18 $15 games. At least that's what I thought. I was going to ask the same thing

 

 

But why though?

 

 

I was more asking why empty out the store of $14.99 games.

Because I had a LOT of trade credit and with elite and the current promo they are $6.66 each. I think I bought around 50 of them between the three stores, but I havent totalled it up yet.

Are you saving them for a future promo?

A few are for the collection. But some I bought to flip so I can convert my credit into cash.

Tried a $15

I was able to use a $15 coupon for amazon. Maybe it was because you tried to do ebay as well.

Do the reward certs work on PSN/Xbox cards?

Speaking of GPGs, did I imagine stores claiming that GPGs were for life instead of a year sometime last year, or did they really do that?

Not that it's a huge deal (or necessarily unexpected), but I noticed that :ps4: No Man's Sky's value went up to $15 base. It was $9 before the Beyond update

Which is so bizarre considering the Xbox version is still at $8 base, even though its newer and theres wayyy less copies of it. I'll never understand it

Just FYI for anyone that doesn't know, the Xbox version of NMS is $14.97 at a lot of Targets.

I'd suspect the PS4 version has more trade value because of the VR capabilities.

PS4 games in general are in more demand than Xbox one games

I’m trying to buy some eShop money with my trade credit on the website, but it’s declining? I know they banned some gift cards for trade credit, but I thought eShop was still fine?

So the survey system is broken?

Btw it looks like many of my local stores lost their prestige status this week, it's a tough time for GS

You should be able to do that.

Spoiler

Yep, the lone Prestige store near me is now no longer of Prestige status, but another one is now Prestige.

Wow, guess those surveys might actually work.   Just noticed the one that I normally go to finally got prestige for the first time.  Another one 25 minutes away also got it too.  The only thing I can see between the two that got them prestige status is that they both get a high level of trade-ins.

 

Speaking of GPGs, did I imagine stores claiming that GPGs were for life instead of a year sometime last year, or did they really do that?

If they're telling you that, they're lying.  GPG are for one year, especially since the sticker that prints up tells what date the warranty expires on.   They used to offer 2 year warranties on used systems, but can't find anything on that anymore.

 

Also just noticed that the supposed "price drop" on Wii U consoles seems to have ended, as they're back up to $109.99 again.

PLEASE stop posting videos from these morons.  I had to stop watching after it was apparent that his thesis was that going to a website and entering in three numbers was far too difficult for the average person to bother leaving a positive survey. This is obviously bullshit or there would be no Prestige stores.  Do I think the whole Prestige thing is backwards as Fuck and that Gamestop probably puts too much emphasis on surveys and metrics? Hell yes. But this is an issue in many places, even the Chili's he mentioned at the beginning.  Not onlyshould you stop posting these, but you should really stop watching them, because they are rotting your brain from the inside.

NMS VR is really, really cool despite the PSVR graphical limitations. (which are significant, but the experience is not comparable due to the sense of scale and wonder)

If they can lessen the graphical disparity on the PS5, then the PSVR might become less niche and more must-own.

I keep forgetting that the VR update is out now. I need to check it out this weekend, haven't played NMS since the last big update but VR sounds like a lot of fun.

Some employees have no idea what they're talking about and some just make up stuff to try to meet their quotas.  I wouldn't be surprised if some employees have said that.
