Hopefully Amazon price matches any of these daily deals that are decent. I'm tired of ordering "new" items from Gamestop.com and get sent open items with a sticker on the side that apparently still makes them new.


I was told by a rep that amazon does not price match at all, anymore. Was I lied to?
I was attempting to price match from Wal-Mart: street fighter collection for the switch

They don't. They are talking about Amazon matching the price of another retailer of their own volition, which they frequently do to undercut their competitors.

you think its worth going to Gamestop as a cheapass? what are you, an employee?

If you know how to "work" their trade in promos the right way you could make some serious bank. On any given day, sure, it's generally not in your best interests to do business with them. But when the right promotions and deals hit, It can beat shopping at Amazon, Best Buy, or anyone else.

You can refuse to take that "sealed game" and shop elsewhere. Every Gamestop I go to, when it's the last copy they let me know it is. Also if you think its not worth going to Gamestop in 2019 you're doing the whole cheapass thing wrong.

I know that and I gladly do. I indicated as well they tell you it's the display box copy and then they give it to you in an envelope and act like it's some impenetrable thing. I'm sure most of them are unplayed but I know a lot of people who have worked or do work there and I know for years they would bring home games and then sell them as new a week later. This was an allowed practice at the time, not people breaking rules.

 

Once again yes, every once in a while they have a sale where they have the best price for a week on one or two games, other than that they're beat in every way. Amazon/Walmart/BestBuy are cheaper for pre orders/day 1 games now if you're into that and Ebay/Amazon/game trading forums are almost always cheaper for used games period. So as a complete outlier yes, sometimes if you're lucky and looking for a specific game they might have the best price for that one game for a week but even then, the price can almost always be equaled or beaten somewhere online. I live less than half a mile from one so I go in relatively often and look around, if you go in and bring up Ebay/VGPC/Reddit and compare prices, it'll often be baffling and that's with their "membership discount." Also the rare $5-10 you might save almost isn't worth it after the 2-3 attempted up-sells you go through per transaction.

Yes this is right. A couple times a year they have certain trade in promos that certain people can work to their advantage. But even then, you're left with a smaller cash amount or Gamestop credit which only works on their mostly overpriced everything. I noted in a reply too that every once in a while they will have the best price on a version of a game also, but they're few and far between in my experience. I didn't mean to come off as saying to never ever shop there, just like you said it's almost always one of the worst options on most days.

Using trade "deals" at gamestop paid for most of my games, consoles and even an ipod touch, so yes. There is a whole thread that you could use like many if us instead of being single minded towards a store for whatever reason people on here love to do.

Yeah every once in a while they have certain deals that some people can use to their advantage. The average consumer doesn't/can't use this and many people don't have a lot of stuff to trade in. It's not a glowing recommendation to say "I have to wait for a certain time of year and then trade in a ton of my stuff to be able to get a good deal here." Yes you can get good credit amounts during these time periods, but then you're left with credit to a mostly overpriced store or a significantly smaller cash amount. I won't speak for others but when I mention a store, I'm talking about how a store operates for an entire year/what their prices are on everything/how it is for all consumers, not how a few outlier sales can work to a certain type of customer's advantage.

That's.. not how being a Cheap Ass Gamer works. One should never settle for a small cash amount or for buying something that's cheaper elsewhere just because you have store credit.

There's almost always some kind of deal or trade offer worth getting there. If not you can either wait, or spend your credit on things that don't typically get discounted like digital shop credit.

These are deals?

 

I suspect these deals will just be junk and toys slightly marked down from their already high price, and maybe a game or two that isn't real old but isn't real new either to bring it in line with the prices other stores have already had it on sale at previously .

Online-only is a permanent dealbreaker unless they offer free shipping or in-store pickup for the featured products.

You can pay online and pick up in store through the app. I got the X Buster for $49.99 and picked it up after work.

Perhaps this an effort to clear their shelves of poor selling titles?

That's cool, we can work with that. Anything to prevent killing the deal with shipping fees is good with me.

I totally bit on the Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI Self-Assembly Construction Kit for $24.99 on the DotD 10-12. Seems like a fun thing to put together with the kids someday and the box looks pretty sturdy for gaming stuff!

It took a few tries through the app to get it to work. I had to re-enter my credit card info for some reason.

I had the same issue on Saturday trying to buy a couple retro games at the last minute with a giftcard. Hoping it was just because it was end of the day and even though technically still available on site it was just running into an issue.

Has anyone tried buying in-store? I know it's says online only - just wondering if stores match their online pricing.
