Have people's online orders been moving? Only one of probably 9 items I'm waiting on has shipped. Placed orders early Friday, they are usually very fast to ship for me.

My shipments seem very hit or miss... half my items ship within 5-6 hours, the other half takes 3-4 days. Sometimes, it seems like they items that take longer are bundled/from the same store.

Went back in today, returned and rebrought my Persona Dancing, along with Digimon Cyber Sleuth for Switch and Bayonetta/Vanquish for PS4.

 

Also picked up my Rabbit Ride Megaman X Nendoroid, my Alena Bring Arts Figure, and a Lillith Borderlands statue. Pretty happy overall, those 2 figures alone were probably like 75% off the going MSRP

How long ago was your original purchase? I have 3 new games bought back in April from Gamestop.com. They are still unopened, I was hoping to do a return repurchase in store. I just saw that a store near me via Google was opened for business instead of just curbside pickup.

It was placed on Friday and picked up Saturday

If I use a $15 off an online item for a $39.99 game and drop it to $24.99, would I be able to get two $19.99 and get a free one?

Instore, yes.  But I wouldn't attempt online as many have reported that the online certs do not apply in many/all circumstances.

Right on! I figured if it doesn’t work, I’ll just get a single game.

Every time GameStop has a B2G1 free sale they are always out of the games i'm interested in. It's no wonder they are going bankrupt if you have people wanting to buy what you'r selling but you don't have it available. Amazon has the games available but don't recall the last time they had a B2G1 free sale.

Hi. So i did a online order. 1 game ship, 2 games pickup. The 1 game ship is preparing shipment. The store pickup is for 1 game, but the other free game is cancelled. Ordered traveler, dusk diver, and gun gun pixels. Does it still charge like b2g1 or would price adjust on credit card? Never ran into this issue before.

You said the store pickup is for 2 games, then said 1 game, then said the "other" free game, so I'm confused. If the store pickup was for 2 games, and your only free game was the one that got cancelled, you're screwed. I'd call the store (which I had to do today to get my order cancelled after they cancelled the free game) and see if theyll cancel the pickup order for you, and ask if they'd be able to cancel the whole thing for you too. Though I don't think theyll be able to since I'm not sure if theyll have the complete transaction info.

Does Saints Row 3R not count for the B2G1? It says it does, but in my cart its not taking away the discount with 3 games.

EDIT: Nvm, it does after trying 3 copies of it, but it doesn't work in my cart with Octopath and Crystar. Weird.

Sorry.

Game 1 is prepare for ship.

Game 2 and 3 are store pickup, but only one game is available and the other free game got cancelled.

Wanted to know how the billing reflects it. Does it discount the other 2 games since the third free game was unavailable?

Whatever your third game was is the free game, if that's the game that got cancelled, you paid full price for two games. If the cancelled one was the first or second item in your cart you got B1G1 instead. System is super dumb this way. In my experience I usually make sure my "rarer" games I pickup in store are not the free game, as these are more likely to not actually be in stock and therefore cancelled. I also always use PayPal because it's very easy to see exactly which games you are being charged for and the breakdown.

Octopath probably won’t work since it was DotD

You're going to be buy for 2 games in full, GS does not factor in any kind of partial price discount for these buy X, get y sales. If your free game doesn't ship, you're screwed. You can call their customer support- seems like some people are having some luck getting them to fix these types of issues- but I've had this happen to me twice wherein my free game was canceled and they did nothing to fix it (even though they said they would).

Here is what it looks like in this order:
5 items

Dusk diver $29.99 pickup ready

Action figure $11.94 prepare shipment

Octopath traveler $49.99 prepare shipment (dotd)

Gun gun pixels $29.99 the free game pickup cancelled.


Shipping & Handling

$4.99

Estimated Tax
$2.94

Order Discount

- $57.97

Total

$41.88

I wasnt thinking of the order placement and ready wanted Octopath traveler. Dusk driver and gun gun pixels wasnt sure about, but needed $30 games to pair up.
This looks funny and not sure if later on it will readjust after the Octopath ships and picking up Dusk diver.

Sorry everyone, normally dont order online much and rather do instore, but Octopath was DOTD shipment only.

If the two paid games are >$35 (threshold for free shipping), I put the free game for instore pickup.  I also call the store beforehand and verify that they have the game physically available.  This also provides a chance to ask about the condition (still sealed, complete with original artwork, etc).

 

It's like dealing with children, it helps to eliminate some of the ways they could screw up.

I'm getting Mario Maker 2 (shipped), Yoshi's Crafted World (pickup), and Link's Awakening (pickup). For some reason it's still charging me for shipping of Mario Maker even though it's over the free shipping threshold.

Only games that are being shipped count towards the free shipping threshold. If you're picking up any games locally, they don't count towards the $35 minimum.

I did end up getting it to work, but there was something that blocked it from working with SR3. Same with Maneater. Maybe because they were new titles and that countered the DOTD..? Only thing I can think of.

Dusk diver $29.99 pickup ready

Did you not have any copies of Octopath available for pickup? It let me select pickup with the two other games I bought.

Mario Maker is $54.99. I got it sorted out after adding and removing different games. It's a little glitchy.

Ok read through that,  it sure I found my answer. Let’s say game one is for ship and cost 50. Game two is for ship also and is the free one. Now game three is pickup and 50. When I get there is gutted and I refuse it.  What happens to the two games I’m waiting to ship?

Death Stranding is the DOTD at $24.99 used, the site will not allow me to search for used!  I actually had to do a "new" search to see where it was available used.  Not taking the long drive to get it so shipping it is. 

 

They are also not allowing me to apply my monthly $5 PUR to the total.  When I enter my PRO account and pin number it says my gift card balance is $0 even though I haven't used it this month. I'm guessing it's because all three games ended up being used copies.  Still kinda BS.  Of course I could just be screwing something up, I don't normally order online because I want to see what I get.

 

Don't trawl this site as much as I used to so sorry if this is common knowledge to the regulars.

You get buy one get one on the shipped games. Congrats you just realized a flaw that every retailer but GameStop would fix.

Exactly. It would be a benefit to THEM if they were to pro rate the B2G1 and B2G2 deals, even if they get abused like targets (where you can cancel immediately, or in GS' case, return the ones you don't want).

I did store pickup and went in and got my items the next day.
