Lucky. I bought MKDD!! and just got the yellow sleeve. I have no cover or manual for the game so now I am on the lookout for one somewhere.

Yeah I also bought 2  MKDD and didn't get anything but a sleeve with them. I've got a few extra cases for that though if you're interested, PM me.

I hope so. I made 3 orders of Switch games, and the only ones that shipped were not the free ones lmao. 

That sucks.  I have everything but a copy of Link's Awakening.  2 games from that order were free so it won't be the end of of the world if it's not fulfilled.

So for the B2G2 I figured I'd buy Gamecube games that I had extra cases for already since they usually send loose discs. So of course what did I get? Cases. One Star Fox Assault had generic case but original artwork. Same with one Paper Mario. The other Paper Mario had original case and artwork, as did the copy of Animal Crossing. And Super Smash was a mint complete copy. Plan backfired, but I'm not complaining. :)


I could use a Star Fox Assault case. 0 for 2 on that one from GameStop. Maybe we could swap?

I was wondering why I haven't received the $5 yet. Guess I can wait for it. Most likely will use on clearance, funko pop or cheap toy that is over $5 by a bit.

Gamestop in Penfield, NY is closing and is having an awesome clearance sale!

 

I got a Bloodbourne Icons statue for $25 and a Megaman X buster for $35. Still plenty of treasure left. If you're in the Rochester area check it out!

Received the last of my Christmas B2G2 today. Out of 3 orders, it was the first order I placed, but the last to arrive. It “included” 3 games (1 of the B2G2 games shipped separately). I was already suspicious because it was the first thing that shipped out of any of my orders (Morning of Dec 27) yet it remained “Waiting for USPS pick-up” until Dec 31.


Today it arrived in a tiny bubble mailer that wouldn’t fit 1 PS4 Game, with a weight of 0.7 lbs total. It was intended to included Bloodstained for Switch, Civilization VI for Switch, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint for PS4. The two Switch games were there, albeit jammed in the mailer, and Bloodstained was a generic case with no art. GR:Breakpoint was nowhere to be seen, which makes sense because even the disc in a sleeve wouldn’t have fit in the bubble mailer used. What nonsense.

The packing slip included all 3 games but showed Bloodstained and Breakpoint as my free games. Maybe the packer saw it as I only bought 1 game but got 2 free and got angry. Not sure -!l but dealing with gamestop customer service took roughly 25 minutes. They seemed to believe me with little explaining and told me a replacement was on the way. We will see.


Literally though, out of 12 games I ordered and 1 was magically gone. I can’t imagine ordering 100+ games. I’d be entirely too anxious.

I have 2 orders in the past month that were cancelled online using trade in credit. How do I get that credit back? is it through a gift card by mail or email or credit refunded back to the card with the credit on it?

 

One was on the 25th of December and the other on the 28th of November.

Got my 5 games from the Christmas sale today. One (CoD WWII) was an ugly black box while the other 4 were in great condition. In fact two of the games were brand new sealed games.

Got overcharged on a order according to the packing slips and tried to do a return. The slips add up to b3g1. JD called a manager AND their support line to make sure I wasn't scamming because the invoices had 2 different invoice numbers with the difference being an additional number on the end of one(12345 vs 123456). I understand he's just doing his job, but dude, that $15 of mine you're trying to keep isn't going into your pocket and the company doesn't really give a shit about you.

 

I even showed him the order on my phone through the app. Wasted my time when he could've just processed the return from the get go. I can't wait to be done with the company once I cash out my rewards points. JD even kept the invoices and said I wouldn't be getting them back. LOLZ ok

This is playing out like another bad EA multi tiered release schedule.

 

But, if I understand correctly,

 

-People with the old Pro / Elite accounts are speculated to be good until sometime around the Q4 Earnings call in March 2020.

-There will be overlap, where existing "old" Pro / Elite members get to double dip with their plan benefits plus the $5 monthly coupon (To get their feet wet?).

-Regardless of the actual "old" Pro / Elite expiration date, the hard cutoff will be swift, perhaps sometime in March 2020 (if not sooner, no promises).

-There is no word regarding any form of reimbursement for unused time.  It may be lost, it may be transferable to the "new" Pro plan.

-The agreement between the member and GS indicates that GS can terminate any account without reason.

 

It's interesting that the coupons come out mid month.  I guess that means there will be only 2 weeks to use them before they get removed from the system.  Sucky if you want to use it on a game coming out early in the month, if this schedule holds for every month.

 

Seems like a mess.  I guess I need to see their new used price structure.

 

The promotion events may still be advantageous, even without Elite, although margins will be slimmer, forcing the manipulation of larger quantities to achieve similar results.  Promotions seem to occasionally coincide with each other, which may be interesting, especially during a +X% trade bonus week. /popcorn

 

Also, stopped by a GS to trade recently, and the pre-owned Switch shelves had a whopping 10 games on them, all with generic cases.  Nothing good either :)  I swear the associate licked their lips when they saw my trades, even though they were loose or with generic cases.  I wouldn't be surprised if the +$5 Switch bonus returns.

My Christmas order "shipped" on the 27th but tracking hasn't updated. Is that normal? I still haven't received anything yet and I'm a little worried as I move on Sunday so need it before then.

The switch extra $5 promo didnt end yet, right? Just traded in an $8 base game and got $12.80 (extra 50% + pro PUR). Thought it should have been the greater amount (extra $5 instead of extra $4 for California).

Edit..maybe it did end..saw the signs in store but didnt see the dates..

Didnt argue but was just wondering.

Had the same thing. My order just said shipped since the 28th but no update until like 20 minutes ago. Finally says that aUps is bringing it, but still no actual deliver date. I guess the packages were just sitting in the warehouse.
Hope you get your stuff on time.

One of my orders came in today, supposed to be 4 gamecube games, instead i get 2 genesis controllers, Sonic 2, Golden Axe, and sonic spinball instead, but my packing slip, with the actual items was in the box. Customer service acted like I may be lying, I told them to check the billed weight of the package at UPS. We will see how long this takes to get worked out. Oh well....least they are supposed to send me the correct games.

Gamestop is demoting elite members to regular pro? How can they get away with that? Elite members paid double.

Finalized haul. Got super lucky, but not as lucky as it looks there - Etrian IV, SMTIV:A, Gravity Rush, and Gamecube titles (!!!) all came with cases, and Star Fox + Animal Crossing came with Nintendo Selects cases, too - but all other cases represented there were ones I'd picked up before or immediately after receipt. And, as usual: no manuals for gamecube. Not too shook about it, though; 's something like my third goaround trying for those specific cases from them :D

 

Not without its headaches - dudes sent me two copies of PSMD, instead of one + one of the DS entries I ordered - but the finalized price is wellll under three digits after getting in ground floor on CAG16 and a handful of returns (that second PSMD, some nasty ps2+3 discs).

 

Can't beat dat. Plastic addiction fed for another year.

Pretty sure I saw in store on Tuesday where it was advertised as Guaranteed to Love, but I would ask before I traded towards it.

 

 

Got my biggest haul from Christmas, 17 games with 6 in the black case and 2 in a clear case with Gamestop artwork. I got lucky and of the games I'm gonna keep, all but 1 was the actual case with artwork so I'll try and go to my favorite store where they know me and try and get a swap. Got Link's Awakening coming Monday, but still awaiting Mario Kart 8, New Super Mario Brothers Deluxe and Witcher 3 to be in stock and I'll have all of my games. Anyone know how many returns you can do in a time period and not get hit with a ban? Some of the games that I was going to trade in came solo with an invoice, so I might try and return a couple of them.

I think it's the only bonus currently available.  +20% bonus for games traded.  Min $5, but you can always transfer the pre-order to the other system later for another +20%.

 

When the game finally comes out, assuming you don't want it, you can transfer the pre-order money again to a game you actually want, before you buy it.

 

You'll get dirty looks though if you flat out cancel a pre-order.  Better to transfer it to another game (which doesn't hurt the associates metrics).

 

G2L would just be the cherry on top, but still delicious either way.  And the +$5 Switch bonus is hosed for now anyways.

Hats off to the kind individual who corrected the Persona Q end label, so now you will always know what game is actually inside.  They single handedly saved anyone else from the confusion, like a modern super-hero.
