you're right

but that hasn't happened to me, or I'd no longer shop at that store.  I'm one of the few who doesn't have a shady gamestop anywhere around me.  Nice workers at the ones I go to.

That was definitely an outlier. I worked at Gamestop for 7 years and that's definitely not the norm, although they did do some questionable things when I worked there. The stores I go to now also have very friendly employees who aren't pushy at all which is a big reason I continue to shop there and hope they are able to stick around for awhile as a company.

Didn’t someone recently order a game, picked it up in store and the manager etc opened the game right there in front of them?

I do remember someone posting that..


Yup that was me. South Park TFBW Gold Steelbook edition. I just wanted the season pass so I wasn't too upset.

I won't buy any new games from GameStop unless it's an awesome deal ($10-20) or if it's a pre-order. I never had a problem with preorders as long as I pick it up within 48 hours, and sometimes longer if I call ahead and let them know.

Is Best Buy still doing the save $1 if you switch to store pickup? Doesn’t seem to be working for me.

Yes, only if available for pickup immediately. If it takes a few days to pickup then no.

Yeah, but what was happening to me was that the $1 off wouldn't show up on the app or mobile site. Had to go to the desktop site on my PC for it to show up. Has been happening for my last few orders.

Not having GCU saves me so much money by not buying anything from BB anymore. So their plan is working.


I looking forward to not hoarding every $20 and below game from BB when my GCU ends. I just got my email yesterday reminding me I have just days left and here is a 25% code for one video game. The last month I’ve been buying any low priced game I thought I might play.

I've had to exit checkout, and start new for it to show sometimes. (Both iOS app and PC website) And a few times if I used the $1 pickup any rewards cert i tried to use got removed from being used as soon as I hit place order. 

 

Last time it happened I told the guy grabbing my order what happened and i'll be returning/rebuying the game with the cert applied as soon as he was done, he had no problem doing it and said this isn't the first time he's heard the website do it.
