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?

more like effort to get people actually in the stores to shop, instead of just picking up and leaving. i dont know how every other gamestop is, but the ones i have been in lately are dead. it is actually a much better place to shop now because the employees have given in to the inevitable and dont bug you about anything. you can browse the games bother free, no bugging to preorder, only thing they even ask is about the game protection and even that seems like they couldn't care less if you get it or not.

From my experience, that is completely dependent on individual stores and employees.

 

I understand the theory of "make them come into the store to actually see if it's available", but gamestops are not only competing against the (few remaining) other game stores, but also the "Eh, I'll just order it from Amazon then" resignation.

 

Giving customers a reason to stay in the store (and spend more money) is different from getting them INTO the store.  Their forthcoming shifting of brand (to "social" stores) is probably affected by the first principle.

Today I ended up picking up; 

 

CTR (PS4)

Concrete Genie

SMB: Banana Bliz HD (Switch)

Little Nightmares: Complete Edition (PS4) w/ unused code for dlc.

 

$12 a piece isn't bad at all. Luckily I found these in one store, 3 of the 4 are sold out online.

I recommend Bloodstained for Castlevania side scrolling fans. The soundtrack is superb.

Bring the receipt with you just in case. It's really annoying sometimes how they slap the receipt hidden behind the UPS label at times.

I took a generic case and game a few times to exchange. They were nice enough to swap it out without processing it through the system.

Does anyone know when the deal ends? Was hoping to get Friday the 13th, Dead by Daylight, Dragon's Dogma, and one other switch game, but Friday the 13th is sold out online, and no store near me has a copy.

Was able to get 3 games with generic cases & 1 with no case at all (literally they just sent the game with a paper sleeve in a yellow envelope) swapped in store.

They had to do a full exchange which took forever but at least It got done. 

Thanks for the suggestion!
