I don't think it's any particular reason to dump your credit. We've known about the closings for a while, and while 300+ sounds like a lot it's not even 10% of their store totals. Presumably the majority of these closings are Gamestops that are too close to each other, remnants from the EB Games buyout when business was really good, which have become pointless self-competition now.

I don't think there's any chance Gamestop will be closed by TLOU2 or even a bit after. Times might be tough but it's not like Gamestop is going under as a company with their closings.

thanks for the advice. I don’t want it to get too heated in this thread, but 300+ stores does seem like a lot. I don’t think GameStop is as profitable as it used to be. I saw some people talking about it in this thread, but there’s no need to get into debate about it.

Pro day  sale is pretty lame. Even the $30 used dualshock deal is hard to get excited for, as it's regularly on sale for 35-40 bucks brand new several times a year.

Is anyone truly shocked that gamestop would toss yet another mediocre sale or and pretend like it's the be-all end-all?

“Pro” sale is a joke. $30 for used controllers and $300 One X that Microsoft just had on sale for $200.

That’s usually for a black DS4 which I’m honestly sick of at this point. This is for pretty much all varieties for $5 more. Not bad.

I also like different shells as it helps me figure out which one is which. That said, I stand by my claim of waiting for the option of $5 or $10 more for new. Who knows how long the used ones will last, assuming they work well in the first place.

Yeah I was hoping for at least b2g1 but this sale is pretty bad.

I wonder if they'd do that right now. A B2G1 would just result in their used game stock being depleted faster and given they can't take trade ins, I'm wondering if they plan to address that any time soon. There are some places that take trade-ins online (requiring you to ship games), I don't get why GS can't do something similar and have employees just wipe down the games before they actually sell them.

I just got an email about a preorder I made in a store. Since that store (and all non-essential businesses) are closed in my area, it said I can opt to have it shipped instead, and to let them know if that's what I wanted to do. But they didn't provide any kind of contact info to do so. Should I just call their standard 800 number?

Either way, when they do start taking in trades physically at stores again they'll probably offer some promotions to get a bunch of stock in quickly.  I would imagine things are starting to run low in store and in the warehouses (on the used front).

That would require them to actually have something to disinfect games which they clearly do not have on hand right now.

GameStop's customer service is truly garbage. Was on hold for over 3 hours today only to get hung up on. You might actually have better luck just responding to the email because they have more people working from home now.

Has anyone had the issue of their pro membership not showing up in their gamestop account? It's definitely associated with the same e-mail/ phone number. I'm hoping to avoid calling the 800 number considering everyone's wait times mentioned in this thread.

When I called the other day, they actually had the service where they call you back when it’s your time. Not sure why that isn’t always the policy.

Hopefully they switch future $5 monthly coupons to 5000 PUR points instead, every month or until they can re-open stores again.

Or you know.. they could let people use them online like any reasonable business would.
