I found this e-mail in my junk folder today.  Came from a suspicious address, but I went directly to the website and it seems legit from looking at the court docs.

Anyone else should check their junk folder, as the e-mail has a claim ID.

Anyone have luck swapping out one of their "4 for $20" games after the promo has ended (but still within the 7-day return period)?  I want to replace the 4th "filler" game I grabbed with another game that has the same ($9.99) price. 

Not likely, since it will require a full return of the whole receipt and then price override on all the games for the new purchase.  Like you said, the promo has ended.  (Returns or exchanges for the same titles is allowable within the 7-day period)

Try clearing your browser cookies.  Someone else posted that a few days ago and it worked for me

I kept doing that and it would fix it for a minute or two, then crash again. Anyway, it seems to being running fine today.

Only if you make them do 4 separate transactions. But they probably won't like that since it will ruin thier circle of life percentages.

I got this too. I actually had a data breach on 1 of my cards used. I was reimbursed but it was a hassle. I lost a shit ton of time fighting with bestbuy and trying to get them to honor there Visa checkout promo. Still have that nightmare to deal with.

Yeah, the Spider-Man Pro may be worth more in the long run than something like the God of War Pro, but I can't imagine it will be more valuable than the translucent blue console.

Yeah that's never going to happen.

You used to be able to throw third party controllers in with trades, did they stop that with the current systems? Oh well, guess I'll just give up the pack in controller, they've let me do that before.


Stopped that with Wii, PS3, & Slim 360.

Let Go & Offer Up are terrible in STL. Everyone wants EBay/retail prices for all of their used stuff.

So you have to do separate transactions per game if you want to keep getting the $5 bonus on the same preorder?

So you guys pre-order and then cancel to keep the bonus? They don't hassle you for cancelling?

I would cancel at a later time if you plan on cancelling so it doesn't look suspicious. Bad thing about cancelling is that it hurts the employee who does the cancellation transaction. I usually just pre order things I can't get cheaper elsewhere like GameStop exclusive Funko pops and action figures that I know I'm going to get anyways.

I think I might pre-order the MegaMan 11 Diorama Statue collectible for the $5 bonus promo...looks pretty neat.



#2160 Alexpguy  

Posted 16 August 2018 - 05:56 AM

correct

Have you tried this personally? The fine print in the ad say limit 1 $5 bonus per pre-order.

Separate note, what's the refurb on <$5 games? ( I'm thinking $1)
