I have never seen anyone on CAG for years, that was able to redeem an online cert. I don't even know why Gamestop still has online certs because they never work. Sorry, but you are going to have to call CS and get your points back.


Tried to redeem a $25 customer service issued cert the other day and that doesn't work either. Thanks GS lol

I can't bring myself to play long games (70 hours FF7 for me) anymore. I miss games like Twisted Metal and Burnout that you could play for about an hour.
 
I was only able to get in 1 order because most of the games that I "wanted" on Switch are sold out. I thought the sale was starting tonight, but this saves me the hassle of rushing home from a Christmas party.

My geriatric dog woke me up around 12:30 last night and I checked to see if the sale had started. I was able to get all the first party switch titles I was after.
I have a hard time playing RPGs on consoles these days. The sleep mode on handhelds has allowed me to play and finish dqviii on the 3ds and octopath traveler on switch. I generally prefer the quick arcade action of Mario kart 8 but I still like a good rpg every now and then

Any cheap $1 item you can add on Gamestop.com to get free shipping? It says I need $0.82 to get free edge shipping.

Thanks!!!

Edit: doesn't work since it counts the cheap $0.99 Xbox game as one of the free game

Edit 2: found some Funko Pez for $1.97 that worked.

Saw this 30 seconds too late, ah well wasted only $1 more. Will probably give the PEZ to some kid at my workplace.

what good is a buy 2 get 2 when they have no games in stock?

 

I was able to find some games.  I bought 8 games for a total of 136 dollars.  Best part is that I had already bought 6 of them from Target/Best Buy during the Christmas season, and I have been so lazy that I haven't opened them yet.  Once I return them, I will get 148 back.  So, I basically got Super Mario Maker 2 and Yoshi's Crafted World for free, plus saved another 12 bucks on my previous purchases.  And, since I felt like I already got really good deals on the previous 6, I am VERY happy with this promotion.

 

P.S.  Yeah, there were some cool games that I wanted that were not in stock used.  But, if you spend the time to look, there are still some good deals.

I think I really could stop buying games for the most part now, like I've been saying I would for a couple years now. The PS4 is now on its way out, and I really have almost every game I have any interest in. Still have a mountain of backlog from other platforms to keep me busy too.

I think at the very least, I can make a hard rule that I won't buy anything else unless it's around $10.

Is anyone else unable to redeem a PowerUp reward? I'm trying to do the Online Only $5 certificate but it keeps saying there was a problem even though I have enough points.

 

I have tried numerous times over the last 30 days to create an Online Only $5 dollar cert. but it NEVER works.  I go through the verification process, but it does work.  At least now I know it wasn't just me - must be wide spread.

 

Anyone else have trouble just using the website?  If I go into ANY web browser in regular mode, the site dies after a few pages with the same error message Request Header Too Large - even on my Galaxy Phone.  The only way I can shop is to us Private/Incognito mode in my browsers.  For a company struggling as much as Gamestop right now, they really don't need the extra hurdle of people not even being able to shop on their site.  Another year or 2 and we will look back on Gamestop the same way we look back on Blockbuster.  So sad.

Keep in mind the closing stores are exempt from any winter sales - so no B2G2 there.

Glad I got my orders in last night before they ran out of stock on most of the Switch games. Now I can return the ones I bought prior to the sale and a return/rebuy on the set of 4 I couldn't order online.

Super tempted to try this with my b2g1 BF orders but I think they'd have a problem with that :P

I'm lucky to be on good terms with 2 SL's, so I usually don't have much issue.

Unfortunate everything I'd consider going for is OOS preowned, solid deal.

It is on the frontpage of Slick Deals and they talk about using CAG16. That's why CAG16 does not work anymore and games are OOS.

Anyone getting errors on the app? I placed an order, and got the PayPal email saying “You’ve submitted an order”, but the app gives me a pop-up saying “Error: one or more items are unavailable”, but all items are showing in-stock. I haven’t gotten a GS email, but I don’t want to resubmit and get double charged. :(

I’m in the same boat. I placed my order last night but it only shows on my PayPal and not on the Gamestop site.

Paypal also seems to be selling a $100 Gamestop giftcard for $92.50.

Is the 10% off pre-owned games stacking with this deal if you still had that feature as part of the Pro Rewards membership?

Same here, I just don’t have the patience to finish long games anymore but Death Stranding made me play 80 hours and counting. Tf is wrong with that game. I’m pretty sure that’s the longest I’ve ever played a game for

I would’ve thought about it if it was cheaper like modern warfare but wasn’t it $54 pre owned before pro or elite membership?

Do you guys know if GameStop will ship the Nintendo Switch games in the original cases?  The Switch game cases are quite small, and thin so they don't take up a lot of shelf-space.
