The amazing website redesign has also made it extremely hard to check in-store availability for me. It seems random when the check store availability link actually comes up. Is there something I'm missing? I mean, they obviously designed everything else so well...
Because it didn't work this way even a few weeks ago (everything had store inventory checkers), they either did this intentionally or the code is even more messed up. It seems entirely arbitrary which games you can check for and which you cant, as it doesn't hold consistency across even console categorization.
Turning off the ability to do in-store pick-ups, however, is clearly intentional.
I find the app much more useful for me. The website says the store has stock of something but it doesn't discriminate if it is new or preowned. It is much easier on the app for me to see if it's preowned or new
Yes, they seem to have intentionally turned off the ability to determine used or new during searches. It is unfortunate that they limited the search range on the app though, because, as you point out, it works just fine.
Is this all an attempt to push everyone toward using only the app?
