The recent scraps of conversations in the past page are hilarious, if you read them consecutively. It's like a crack / meth addict clinic blog.

/Cheers!

I think this is the one to ban.

Hmmm interesting... Rune Factory 4 Special (S) doesn't show up on the GS website for purchase or trade-in... was really trying to find a preowned copy of that.  I'll call tomorrow to see if they employees have a sku for it.

I think I'm going to bite the bullet and pre order animal crossing digitally on GameStop.com and see if I get the $10 bonus

So I mentioned it before but how worried is everyone that the new max base for current gen  games is $30 instead of $35? 

The new ad should give us a good indication of whether $30 is going to be the new norm.

$30 is fine. Maybe now ill play my games instead of constantly trading them in.

I ordered DOOM and Animal Crossing online yesterday because I wasn't sure what was going to happen with the stores this weekend. DOOM is preparing for shipment and I was shipped a 'DOOM tin', anyone know what it looks like? I don't remember seeing anything about it and there is no picture of it.

It’s so dumb that GameStop is still operating two weeks ago they got hammered with the division 2 fiasco and generated a loss and now with the virus they have to keep the stores open or they will go bankrupt within a week. Stop hurting the employees and CLOSE THE STUPID STORES !

It might be the wrong place to ask, but does anyone know if they can change an in-store pre-order to a shipping pre-order? I have Persona 5 Royal Phantom Thieves edition pre-ordered and I don't think I'm going to be going into any Gamestop for the time being or if I have to I'd like to just make 1 trip to do everything, if they ever continue to stay open, and it's sold out everywhere else or I'd just order it somewhere else

Has anyone used trade credit for an online purchase, recently?

 

I had an issue a couple of years ago, and it took a call to CS to get it sorted out. It might have been because I tried to purchase digital currency with trade credit, but I might be wrong. 

 

Thanks!

 

Stay safe, everyone.

I started playing this a few weeks ago and now I can't stop. Game is extremely fun and addicting.

This is what I thought, too. I did have an issue, and who knows if the call centers on the other side of the world would be open now; even if so, I wouldn't feel right about doing it. I'm not going to the store, either.

 

If anybody has any information on using trade credit, online, please, post it for everyone to see. 

 

Thanks!

Lol, just came from a gamestop and there was a kid running around the store touching all the shelves.  Bless these employees.

AFAIK the Gamestops in Pennsylvania are closed for a couple weeks, and I have Resident Evil 3 pre-ordered (under the basis I'd have received it at 9PM the night before launch, of course). What's my best course of action here, preorder it now on Amazon and in a month or two collect my preorder in store when things have died down?

If you really want it on release, sure.

In store?

 

I figured Netflix and Hulu cards stopped working with the rest but if it does I might as well re-up another year for both.

Just went and cashed out all my GS credit from the Div2 weekend for Xbox credit.  Cashier gave me a $#!%ty attitude for cancelling pre-orders but with half the stores in our mall closed anyway, it's only a matter of time until I wouldn't be able to get there anyway and pick up anything physical.  Going to leave him some good surveys to hopefully soften the blow.

 

Just wasn't comfortable with leaving $100+ on a gift card for a store with such an uncertain future.

Went to pick up some Jimmy Johns for lunch and the Gamestop next door is closing down. Stopped in and they were mostly wiped clean, but I did manage to pick up Fire Emblem Warriors on Switch for under $10. I guess they started closing about a month ago and will go till the end of April, but not sure how they will get that far with what they had left today. 

 

Probably good I missed out on the start of the sale otherwise I'd be trading games for supplies right now lol.

Weird, got an error ("Your order could not be submitted. Please review your payment settings and try again. Thank you for your patience!") but maybe I'll try in store either way.

 

EDIT: nvm, it went through and I got $100 Netflix card! Thanks!

EDIT2: Also worked for Hulu gift cards! Got $75. Perfect way to use up some credit.

Amazon isn’t shipping non essentials and has been delaying FF7 orders so that may not be an option either
