It seems as though gamestop is not restocking. Anyone have insight as to why this is so?

Seems like a complete reconstruction


The GameStop I shop at is better stocked than the Walmart near me on systems although neither one is very well stocked. The Target near the gamestop I shop at though is fully restocked.

Got mine at the beginning of my birthday month (issued Dec 1, coupon valid until Jan 15).

 

this is utter bs im calling or emailing their support. When i signed up a few months ago for Pro they "accidentally" sent me an email for buying 2 used games get 1 free or something which they denied because of the change and now this? Not to mention i sure as hell didnt get the $5 welcome coupon  -____-

 

anyway stopped by one of the closing stores in NYC and new switch games were 50% off while used ones were 60% but unfortunately besides Overwatch there was nothing worth my money. Besides some figures, Xbox1 games, Destiny 2, and other garbage the store was practically wiped clean of games.

 

TBH im happy enough having taken advantage of B2G2 deal and the odds I would have been in the store the minute the sale started and scored hot ticket items like Smash in a city like this would have 1 in a million.

Been trying to check the balance on my trade card but I keep getting errors. Tried the balance inquiry, tried checking it through placing an order, tried the phone number... All errors. Anyone else?


Haven't tried, but you can add a gift card thru Samsung Pay and it checks the balances perfectly.

GameStop employee mentioned that after the Pro change, pre-owned prices under the old Pro program will basically be the price for everyone.

 

I can't imagine how empty stores would be if it weren't for the Switch. Management keeps saying just wait for next holidays, but I don't think it will be all they say. Streaming services (ala Game Pass), continued support for last gen, and steep hardware prices will limit the mainstream appeal GS needs.

Are there ever trade promos aside from the ones listed below the trade search on the website? I have a metric ton of games I want to trade in, but 20% percent extra seems low. My closest GameStop closed, so it’s a 20 min drive instead of a 2 min drive. Sorry, been out of the loop lately.

It’s only going to get lower from here on out...

I believe the 18th is the last day (since that’s the last day of the CSAC).

I’m in California, is it 50% bonus trade credit? If so I’m there.

It seems very unlikely that they will drop the price of every used item by approximately 10%.

 

It is much more likely that they cap used prices of newly-released used games at $50 and expect everyone to be ok with it, despite their claims.  For a lot of us that represents no significant value at all.

For those still holding out hope, Elite is officially dead on 1/16. They updated the PUR terms and conditions yesterday:

 

PowerUp Rewards Elite Pro Membership

As of August 2018, PowerUp Rewards no longer offers the Elite Pro membership tier and as of January 16, 2020 PowerUp Rewards will no longer honor Elite tier status or benefits.

If you previously purchased an Elite Pro membership and your membership has not expired, you have been grandfathered into the NEW Pro membership. If you prefer not to participate in the NEW Pro tier, you may cancel your subscription and request a refund of your Elite Pro Membership by contacting Guest Care.

I’ll be stopping at GS after work to stock up on a few games before the 20% discount dies. It was a good run...still holding out hope that we get some ok-ish deals/promos this year.

Wow, grandfathered in, so that mysterious $10 reward certificate Elite members received a few days ago was just the $10 difference between the Pro and Elite membership. Wham bam thank ya ma'am.

Yea... I'm going to blow my points and get refunded for the several years I have left on Elite.

 

Goodbye, GameStop. I look forward to pillaging your future store closings.

Ah lucky, I'm near two of the stores but I'd imagine they've been cleared out of good games by now.

Individual stores may be on a slightly different markdown schedule depending on when they started their store closing. The store near me isn't doing the 70% off or 5 for $5 sales yet.

No $10 coupon or email on my end yet, renewed online with the glitch. Gonna miss the benefits, beginning of the end right here. Went out with a bang with the B2G2 though.

"Grandfathered in" would mean those members would keep their perks even after the plan is officially discontinued. Elite members are being converted into the new Pro, literally the opposite of grandfathered. They're doing the thing like when people say "literally", but they don't mean literally.

Went to a closing store and got a switch lite...was hoping to grab some flipable games but the store’s apparently been closing since Nov so everything was long gone...

I'm trying to decide how much credit I want to keep with the hopes of picking up PS5 / XBSX versus splurge on digital currency while it still can be used for that...decisions

Going to check out the GS closing by my house on Thursday when the final round of price drops happen. Hoping they still have some Switch games but not too hopeful.

Pretty jelly of the people with stores closing around them. I don't think there are any closing stores in my whole state.

This is probably just the first round. Stores will regularly start dropping like flies.
