Is it possible to buy something in store currently via curbside if it's not available through the GS app or website? My 2 local GameStops have standard switches in stock according to the app, but I don't see an option for store pickup.

Also any clue when GS will reopen for business?

PSA b/c of Covid-19: Gamestop.com removed all of the PUR certs for in store, now the only ones on the desktop site are for online only. Not sure if anyone has tried successfully using an online PUR cert recently because for a long time they have not worked according to many CAGs.

Pretty annoyed.  Not only are they late getting my preordered P5R CE in, but then they don't issue the April cert and remove the method I was going to use for paying off the remaining balance.

I was hoping to use my P5R cert, and some of my points to finish paying off FF7R....I wonder if I can still do that.

Alright so I pre-ordered Doom Eternal back in February but was unable to pick it up because of Coronavirus-related shutdowns.

Am I SOL on getting the pre-order bonuses?

Can you pay off your preorder online if you need to pick up the game in store?

I tried checking on the website, reddit, and here (hard to navigate). What is the return policy with this pandemic in effect? I doubt they can survive a blow of thousands of returns when everything returns back to normal.

 

Does anyone have a plan on what to say/do if they reject a return?

I used online coupon Friday or sat when they had Xbox one x for $299. Unfortunately it wouldn't apply to console(I was bummed) , so I got a game and it was free

Got to love the fact that it says both "in store only" and "online only" in the fine print.

If you view the coupon itself. It states "Coupon valid in store only." But the wording on the coupon from Gamestop says Online Only. I'd venture to say that the coupon itself is in store only and if you can't use it then well guess you are out of luck. Typical Gamestop.

It says on the coupon available 4/2 - 4/30. That's why it's not working today. We will see tomorrow if it works.

Well I got an email to get back a giftcard for my Resident Evil 3 preorder so I can ship it instead of waiting for the store to reopen.

What's weird is I only had the CE pre-ordered (one for XB1 and one for PS4, on separate accounts and neither had more than the minimum). Nothing for Persona 5 though.

Had to go to the bank today, and saw that the GS next to it is still open. I asked if I could pick up my Persona preorder there since the store I ordered it in was inside of a mall that's closed. They said I was out of luck until it reopens.

I just looked at the coupon in my account and GameStop must have fucked up because the terms and conditions paragraph has separate parts that say the coupon is In Store only and Online only.

lmao wtf leave it to Gamestop.....

Five posts up, bruh.

Coupon is in the account now and it looks like they changed it to online only for this month...sucks because I only ever use them to buy $5 eshop credit.

I don’t understand since you could in store why they can’t just go ahead and allow us to use the online certificates on psn, XBL, eshop given the circumstances. I’ve lost 2 $5 coupons from March, will lose the $5 April one, and have 22000 reward points I can’t claim so far.

The $5 monthly PUR cert works online now, I just tried it on AC. "Pro members get $5 off a single in-stock physical item valued $4.99 or more. GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the offer for any reason without notice. Valid online ONLY!"

absolute trash certificate considering they slap you with a high shipping fee unless over $35
