Same. Plus some premium thing that doesn’t have a picture.

For whatever reason they created 2 orders even though I only had one preorder. The other order is ‘awaiting product availability’ though.


I was wondering if it was the preorder tin box thing.

What email method did you guys use, it says out of stock when I click on the email I did in store pre order but my store is closed


If you preordered in store and paid it off fully Gamestop sent an email if you prefer to get it shipped instead of waiting for the store to preorder. You just follow the steps on the email and it came up as an order on the Gamestop website.

^I never got any steps. They sent an email saying I could opt to have it shipped, but they gave no instructions to do so.

And depending on how big the Persona 5 Steelbook edition is, I may not even be able to have it shipped. My apartment building office isn't accepting packages at the moment, and I work during the day so I can't get it directly. Feels like I'm just 100% screwed on this one.

When you click on the $4.99 for WWE 2k20 it takes you to the page where the game is $19.99.

Strange, mine shows "Sponsored" on it. Assume it was a ploy to get you to click on it to take you to another page, but it doesn't. It takes you to the game page but seeing 19.99.

Received 2 "new" opened games. One of the cases is noticeably beat and the games were inside a white GS sleeve. WTF. Fuck GS like really if it wasn't for the $5 coupon I wouldn't have even bothered as Amazon a couple hours later had the same prices

Can anyone tell me how to use the power up certificate for an online order?  I tried entering in the code on the coupon but it didn't work.  Even though the coupon says "Online only" it doesn't really explain how to do so.

Buying anything from lamestop is always the wrong answer.

Is it worth buying the deal of the last vr headset? I only on the camera and no move controller. I’m not even sure if the PS4 pro has a camera slot.

Probably looking to get astro bot Skyrim and doom vr. I already have re 7

If you have to ask, the answer is no. But really only you can decide what is worth your money or trade credit.

Given GameStop's reputation for "refurbishing" items, and this is a VR headset, I'd have a hard time imagining that you'll get anything other than a hassle delivered to your door.

If you do buy it, check the lenses for scratches after you're done cleaning it and replacing the pads...

I was going to jump on the PSVR deal, but I'm not sure it is much of a deal.  $100 for the refurb, which is YMMV in quality, then you still need a camera which is in the $40 used/refurb/ebay territory.  Then to get the full experience, you need 2 PS Moves, which are around $40 EACH in the used/refurb/ebay territory, and the ebay ones tend to be the PS3 versions with old charge ports and batteries.

 

Ends up coming to the typically discounted price of new bundles, but without any games.  I could see this worth it for someone who has the V1 headset and wants to upgrade to the V2.  Anyway, I cancelled my order that I impulse bought.  I'll wait for a bundle at $200, or a slicker deal on a headset.  I could sit around and wait for camera/move deals, but those are far and few between.

 

That's all that needs to be said on this deal as far as I am aware.

Frankly, i cannot fathom why anyone would purchase anything from gamestop, knowing how awful the website it, how likely it is that they will get a piece of trash sent to them and how hard it world be to return anything.

Thanks guys, scared me off the GameStop the headset. I’ll wait for a $200 sale like the other poster said.

Since lockdown, I bought a red/blue switch, animal crossing NH, switch pro controller, link enhanced controller, joy-con charger, Persona 5 Royal. Everything came fast and brand new.

 

Only issue I had was calling to get certs switch to points (2 hours) and my Persona 5 came in a padded envelope that had tracks on it from what looked like a cart ran over it.

 

I used the app and website and used numerous gift cards, points and certs.

 

Granted I bought new release games. Not ones that have been out awhile, so less likely to get a open copy.

 

I got a like new Zelda Wii U with games on it a 32 GB ipod touch red that was mint and many more things in the past too.

 

I would be worried buying used with the stores not open though.

Worth it for Astro Bot and Moss alone. $99 is a great price especially if you already have the camera. Move is nice, but not necessary for many games including Astro and Moss. I'd say do it.

There are a few exceptions I found out after I claimed one ($50 online cert).  It excludes bundles which I tried to apply to the Switch bundle last week.  However, the $5 monthly PUR worked on the bundle, go figure.  Ended up grabbing the BFII PS4 pro to tide me over to when the PS5 comes out later this year, then I'll trade it in, hopefully for $200-250 TIV for the PS5.

Not to throw fuel on the fire but I had my final gamestop experience 2 weeks ago.

Went to gamestop #1. Store was locked. They let me in. Told me not to touch anything and they needed to know what I wanted. Told them what what I was looking for but it was only in stock at gamestop #2 20 minutes away. They agreed to hold it for me.

Drive to gamestop #2. Gamestop 2 will not let me inside and will not acknowledge the game is being held for me. Tells me to order online and pickup in store. This isn't possible because the site shows the game oos. Manager tells me to "keep trying every hour". I already drove here specifically for this game...After an hour in the parking lot I give up and go home.

Next day, game becomes available to purchase online and pickup in store at gamestop #2. I order the game and pay. I call the store and inform them I bought the game online and I'm the same guy who has the copy being held from yesterday. They acknowledge this. I get to the store. They will not give me the game because the order "has not shown up and been fulfilled yet." I leave to to shopping. I go home. 3 hours pass. I call the store and they tell me I still have to wait for the order to be fulfilled.

3 days pass.

They cancel my order via email.

This was a birthday gift for my nephew.

Never again.

Every retailer asks you to wait until you get pickup confirmation before going to the store. You wouldn't have had a better experience at Best Buy.

Redeemed points for a $15 online only coupon on 3/20 and it's coming up as invalid now. Waiting on hold with customer service. No expiration date listed anywhere.

Objection!!!!

I ordered a store pickup of a game from a Best Buy knowing they had it in stock, and that I was headed that way later in the day. I get there and they tell me the pickup isn’t ready because the copy I’m getting is being shipped to them from a warehouse. They couldn’t just give me the copy that was in store.

So they had me cancel the order and just buy the copy they already had on the spot.

That was before coronavirus. You would've been out of luck just like the previous poster since Best Buy only does curbside delivery now too.

Still waiting for FF7. Made a post on the local facebook I'd pay up to $200 for a copy today. Let's see what happens. Gamestop being slow with this.

Friday gotta pick up my delxue edition from them.
