I ordered 8 games. Two separate orders, both shipped the 27th with estimated delivery for today but still at label created. Who knows what'll happen

My status:

46 orders

---

29 fully shipped

7 partially shipped (most have 1 or 2 items left and mixture of preparing for shipping / awaiting availability)

10 orders in progress with the majority of them "Awaiting Product Availability". All of these orders were on the 27th or 28th. The others (shipped) were mostly on the 26th.

By the way the arrival dates on GameStops website are usually wrong. Copy and paste the tracking number to ups.

Probably in store, I ended up with like 3 copies as fillers to my b2g2 work and worth it in those particular stores.


Correct, 90% of my list was online orders.

Anyone know a way for me to find out which two of my games were free and which were paid if they failed to include ANY invoice in my package? I ordered Code Vein, Fire Emblem 3 Houses, Links Awakening, and DQ XI. CV and FE3H arrived today. No slip. Other 2 are awaiting availability and I have no idea what to expect for pricing if they cancel the other 2, and I'm running out of time to return any as I wait for the other 2 games.

Unrelated question: I have 50k points, and would like to redeem for a 50 dollar cert, and use that for a 50 dollar xbl gift card. That should work, correct?

Thanks in advance!!

 

It's possible the invoice is behind the shipping label covered in protective plastic. Found this out in one of my orders when I was cutting up a bubble mailer.

Got rejected trying to do this yesterday with an iTunes card, the guy said they aren’t supposed to do that. Went to another store and worked fine. Be aware that the certificates I redeemed yesterday show today as the expiration date, so I have to go out an use the other today.

I did. Like 375 total games ordered. I don't mess around when it comes to *once in a few years kind of deal*. Mostly retro. I don't do any of that flip back to Gamestop stuff. Though I may sell some of it elsewhere to recoup what I spent. 

 

Gonna be interesting to see if they mess up the orders or if games don't work / counterfeits. :)

Do California stores get 50% since they have a cash same as credit deal going on?

Got my first non-working switch game from Gs today - looked clean but wouldn’t register... use a eye glasses cleaning wipe on the metal area and it worked. So for those flipping it semi pays to check for gold points and to ensure it works!

It's nothing to sweat about.  Stores do this to "show" their attentiveness to customers, and to corporate.

 

Their response time is swift (to print the label) .. yet the package takes some time to truly be prepared.

 

EBay sellers do this as well.  It's equally annoying.  It's considered shipped, even if only the label was generated, with the package not even picked up, or nothing in any kind of box to be picked up, for that matter.

 

It helps with GS's store metrics with regards to response time, but it's a farse when it gets done this way.  I understand why it's done this way.  It's still cheesy.  Corporate only looks at numbers though, not actual corresponding data.
 

On the bright side, once they pre-paid for a label, I've never had an order cancelled.  If an order is cancelled, nobody can ever re-use the paid for label, unless it's going to the same address, etc.  Labels are non-refundable, as I understand [USPS says they can be refundable (if petitioned), but I've tried before, and nobody responds, so w/e -- believe UPS is the same way - glad to take money, .. if you wan't it back, good luck].

Amazing call. That's exactly where it was. FE3H was 46 and code vein was free. So I guess I'll see what happens with the other 2.

For part 2, I saw the one response saying it didn't work on iTunes, but I thought gaming gift cards were still good?

Only 4 of my games haven't shipped yet, NSMBD x2, Octopath Traveler & Bloodstained (NS). Mario & Octo was ordered on Xmas.

Ah the $50 certificate only show on the website. I checked the app yesterday and only seen the smaller amounts.

Damn just checked UPS and mine say the same thing. GameStop says delivery by the 31st but UPS shows that nothing has actually been shipped. We'll see if anything comes tomorrow.
One order supposed to arrive on the second from Texas.

Bought Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis, Kirby Allies, and Marvel 3 on Friday for B2G2. ~ $100 or so.

Traded Kirby and Marvel 3 back to GS today for $88.

Thank you, California!

Got my first 6 games, of the 28 I ordered. 2 in full case, 3 in generic black case and a brand new sealed copy of Breath of the Wild. I'm at 3 games awaiting availability, including Witcher 3 which went from preparing to ship to awaiting product availability this morning, and Link's Awakening which is supposedly at preparing for shipment. I have a bad feeling that I'm gonna get screwed out of 4 games, but I'll give it a little longer before I get too worried.

I got an email today saying there was a problem with my payment, and that I needed to update it within 48 hours or my order would be canceled.

The thing is I’ve already received 3 out of 4 games, with the last one “preparing to ship” for the past few day’s. The charge definitely went through on my PayPal account, so I don’t know what they’re on about.

Anybody else seeing this going on GameStop's website?

 

"Access Denied

I think it may be a service provider issue (had problem's with Spectrum before regarding Groupon and Yelp) but don't know for certain.

Had to call in for missing points from Black Friday and b2b2 promo. Both gave me 360 points even though my totals were $58 and $25. I ordered another set on Saturday and I'm guessing I'm gonna have to call again. What a hassle these foreign cs ppl don't listen or understand but the pts put me close to the $10 pre-owned reward so I had to call

Been refreshing thread and reddit waiting for this; literally only hitting me on firefox, though.

Chrome and IE on same machine functioning as normal; chrome on mobile android, same deal.

 

Been ongoing for about an hour now. Same as Noobcake, cache+cookies don't make a difference.

Having this issue as well, Only firefox, works fine on Edge,  Private Window in firefox also works. 

 

However I'm also seeing that CAG16 isn't working anymore when using it through Edge, or private window Firefox.
