Added 3 copies of destiny 2 ps4 to get the 50% off in store pick-up for azure striker for switch and alliance alive 3ds ($21.xx total). Each destiny 2 copy came to $0.74 each. I'll find SOMETHING to do with them, hah.

Ideas: 

1. Frisbee 

2. Coaster 

3. Ineffective ninja throwing star 

4. Kind of a mirror

No joke, I think I might legitimately use them as coasters.

Or per the third option, watch my children chuck'em at each other. Either way.

I can't get my $15 online certificate to work. I took out the dashes in the code too. Any suggestions?

Thank you for posting this, I would never have noticed it.

 

Makes it a bit less of a "flash" and more an elongated illumination, but I'm not complaining :)

I haven’t been able to use a $10 cert either, no matter what I try. Pretty frustrating.

Where are they getting all these used games... they've had quite a few sales during the pandemic.

Are you guys trying them in conjunction with the sale discount? That gave me problems too so I gave up. I WAS able to apply the $5 PUR coupon to a single item, though.

They are not going to work on a sale like this where the prices are replaced, not reduced.

For people that have ordered PS2 games before, what % is disc only, like 98%?

Went with the following:

Xbox 360 = Godfather 1, Godfather 2 and Tenchu Z
Wii U = Yoshi’s Woolly World
Switch = Tiny Barbarian Dx and Umihara Kawase Fresh

Overall happy with that selection. Hopefully, these will come CIB. Guess we shall have to wait and see.

100% no manual, but have been ~50 50 for cases and 50 50 for defective on PS2. Ps2 has been better than GC and Xbox those two sometimes have cases. Ps1 and dreamcast rarely have cases and I have never had a case for a sega saturn game and I have bought ~15 saturn games.
Have had several ps1 and ps2 discs that were cracked and one was split from spindle to the edge like pacman. I would personally avoid disc based non bluray games until store allow returns. Half off and half defective with no returns is essentially full price.

If we order today, but pick up tomorrow, would we be charged the sale price from today or would the prices go back to normal when the sale is finalized tomorrow?

Does anyone know this?

As long as you pay online, your price is locked in. You have a week to pick up your order.

I’m assuming it’s 50/50 on getting the case for a ps4 game. Never ordered preowned games online from them so I’m hesitant.

Was so tempted to get in on this deal, but the possibility of not having the proper case sort of kills it for me.

Same, but I bought 5 games that I really wanted anyway.  If the 3 Switch games I bought come with case and artwork I'll be happy. 

 

Also tempted to take a chance on a 2nd batch of obscure Switch games but now I'm questioning if I'm just buying on impulse.

Closer to 66-75% with cases, its not too bad.

Just got a shipped email, but only 2 of the 5 games were listed on it as shipped? Is that normal?

Ended up getting:

Tropico 5 (xb1)
Blue Dragon (x360)
Lords of the Fallen (ps4)

Lichdom (xb1)

Only $30 so I’m good, $5 a pop.

Games from the same order will often go out in different shipments, so you'll get a different email for each shipment.

A few sold out games are starting to come back in stock. Lego DC Villains for X1 and God of War are showing available again, so I placed an order.

Question about the "free shipping on orders over $35" offer

Is there a code to enter or do you have to pay first and hope that they take off the shipping fee?

 

 

I have over $45 of used games in my cart and it keeps saying that S&H is $7 at the submit payment screen.

Do you have the saver shipping option selected at checkout?

There is no saver shipping option, there are no shipping options (free, express, overnight, etc), and entering the promo code SAVER does nothing.

Edit

 

It's working now, signed into the Gamestop website on a different browser and now it shows free shipping

( wtf )
