I pre-ordered from Bestbuy in December and a few days ago I received an email that shipping was delayed. At first it said the 16th now it says I'm not getting it until Monday. I think Amazon orders were also getting delayed.


That sucks dude. My didn't get delay and will arrive today.:/

Is anyone able to figure out a search function for this

Or to see if any store in the country has a pre-owned one?

Will do. The rep said the district managers are supposed to be handling the refunds. Maybe they're dragging their feet to help their numbers? Who knows.

That's extra terrible that they're still attributing cancelled pre-orders to individual employees during a crisis in which all stores in my state are closed...

I would avoid the hassle of trying to call and argue, but damned if I want to let this company keep an extra dime of mine. Looks like I'll get myself on hold while working later...

EDIT: gave up on hold near the 2 hour mark. I had something else to do. I hate this store so much.

So I was able to put in a pre-order order for a $500 Switch bundle that releases 4/30 with the console, a Pro controller and 3 games. Any insight into if they're likely to fulfill this order?

I was finally able to checkout for $10 digital currency with my $10 persona cert today.  Yesterday it would apply but I was unable to checkout.  Before that, it wouldn't apply at all online.

 

Just an update in case other people have been waiting to use the cert.  Seems like what works/doesn't work changes on a daily basis on their website.

I ordered one of the $289 Switch Lite bundles that did not show a preorder note about 4/30, and every item shipped separately on different dates. The console shipped last and took over a week to get a tracking number.

Did you contact CS directly? I had a $5 deposit on Nioh2 but have been unable to get it back with the state closing all the stores.

No. I was sent an email last week with a link to submit my request. Your $5 is stuck until they re-open because they didn't start doing this until games were being released while stores were closed (RE3, FF7).

Did it come with the chocobo preorder bonus?

Two codes print on the GS receipt; top one was Chocobo Chick. Second one I have no clue what it's for as it doesn't work on PSN and the website doesn't say what it is. Cactar code for the Deluxe Edition is in the packaging.

You can tell they make these ads well in advance since on the front page they call out Last of Us 2 and say preorder now, coming soon! I guess they don't follow gaming news much and didn't realized it was pushed back. :p

Just a correction, it's not Pro Day, it's "Pro For A Day" sounds like they're rolling out benefits to everyone to make them want to sign up for Pro. Not sure what that means though

Well, since Pro doesn't get any discounts / savings vs a non-pro, then it's just a normal "Pro-day sale" me thinks!

 

$2,600 in savings! ($2,500 of which are in Pops!)

Can you use power up rewards gift cards on digital credit like eshop and xbox?

I have never been able to use rewards credit for eshop online, in store never had any issues.
I was able to use it online for Xbox cards with no issues.

Wait 5 minutes and someone will say the exact opposite 😉

Anyone else get the work from home essentials text from the app? What a pathetic attempt to justify "essential" they have had weeks and this is all they can muster...
Thanks for the laugh gamestop, no one believes you sell stuff to work from home. In two-three weeks you could have actually secured contracts and legitimately have work from home stuff to sell.

Boxed or bubble wrap? Really hope my Deluxe doesn't come in looking like it got run over

 

 

Speaking of which, I got a $15 and $25 cert to buy it today (was worried it would never come back in stock) only to discover like an idiot I accidentally got the in store cert for the $25. I didn't want to risk the game being sold out so for now I'll just hold my tongue until May or June to ask them to swap it or better yet refund me the points since I really REALLY don't want to spend another 2 hours in hell calling customer service. Too bad I can't just exchange it for eshop or PSN credit

Tried both the second code on the receipt and the code on the shinra employee card and they don’t work on that website. Keeps saying “ Please provide a valid Shinra Employee ID number.”

Tried the codes with and without the dashes

On Tuesday, I exchanged 5,000 rewards points for a $5 online-only reward coupon/certificate. I successfully used the coupon to fully pay for a $5 Xbox gift card.

 

The monthly $5 for Pro members worked on PSN/Xbox/Nintendo gift cards in store. HOWEVER, the April reward appears to exclude Xbox (and likely other) gift cards.

Trying to do this now.  Doesn't take the coupon now.  Wonder if I am doing something wrong or they disabled this.  

 

Also doesn't work for a physical game either.  

 

Rewards activity shows I bought something tomorrow.  Doesn't even say what.  I assume its the $5 online coupon.

Anyone redeemed for a $50 online cert have any issues applying the cert to your cart? Keeps saying coupon cannot be added to my cart when I enter it.

I was getting the same things on a $5 one.  When I put it in as a power up credit card it seemed to work and recognize it was a $5 online coupon.  However it still failed on check out.  

 

Does your's show it was purchased 4/11/2020?   Maybe its not active or something until tomorrow?
