Weird question. I have a transaction that went through that, at the time of purchase, I KNOW I used store credit and the difference on credit card X. However, after delivery I realized that the the transaction actually FULLY charged (no store credit used) on to another card I have on file, let's call credit card Y. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

The reason I know for a fact that I initially used store credit and credit card X was the final order page specifically broke down how much was credit and last 4 of credit card X, which I selected.

I'm legitimately at a loss here, as I have e no clue how this happened.

Split payment is often a mess on the website,  even more so if you are doing a preorder.  If you need to do a split payment would always recommend placing the online order in store.

Found out controllers are still in trade even though the site says they don't take them. Sitting in two grand in controllers. Xbox 360 are $10. $12 after boost.

I can't even put into words the garbage employees that I encountered at two different Gamestops this weekend.  Nonstop lies to the customers.  Two stores with signs on their doors selling ~$950 PS5 bundles.  The third store telling me I'm wrong, that's not true, and their bundle is only $750.  Actually I heard two diff stores engage separate customers inquiring about the PS5 price, pal.  Another store lead told me today that the 2 for $20 t-shirt sale was over on Friday and the next store tells me I am wrong....with their own information.  Actually that was the shop down the street bro. Multiple store leads lying through their teeth about "this is the price mandated from Sony", "we don't mark them up at all," and "this is the very first Pro Day sale since before the pandemic".  Complete imbeciles that drink the kool-aid, lie to their customers constantly, and have no idea what they're talking about.   This was the hard-working, "let's tighten-up-the-ship" crew. 

 

Give me the first guy in the chair, his feet kicked up, not greeting the customers, watching stand-up comedy on his tablet "N****a this, n****a that" at incredibly high volume, any day of the week.  At least he was real. 

 

One lead at one of the stores was chewing out his brand new 18-ish female employee, "...we were talking and we saw that you had 54 sales transactions yesterday and ZERO power-up pro memberships sold.  So we thought maybe you didn't know what you were doing and blah blah blah" and proceeded to berate her and instruct her better ways of doing her job.  She looked utterly defeated.  You better start paying your employees more than $10 /hour if you want them to care about any of this corporate mandated bullshit. 

 

God this company is a complete embarrassment.  I was about to spend another $60-$100 today before I simply walked out on these two assholes. 

 

Might be the first time I do a survey, ever.  :twoguns:  There is nothing more obnoxious than when an idiot lies while talking down to you.

I can confirm that trading anything towards Lego Star Wars does not give you a 30% trade-in bonus.

I repeat: there is NO 30% trade-in bonus when trading towards a new copy of Lego Star Wars.

I’m amazed he went to 3. Or 2. He could be writing fanfiction and no one would be able to discern if any of it is real.

Haha I think we need a support group as I also have over a dozen Xbox controllers. I just can’t resist a deal on limited edition colors. I partially blame the N64 controllers from my childhood that were so flimsy. Buying used controllers grosses me out so I’ve got this fear of wanting to play years down the road and having to find a nasty used controller. Nintendo could sell sooo many pro controllers if they bothered to release limited editions with their big titles.

I resell thousands of games. Quit my main job during covid started a company that I can be off-hand with and this is what I do for a living now while earning passive income.
The controllers are from yard sales or system bundles.

The biggest hit I took was no more Wii controllers and no more motion plus attachments. Used to trade in for $5 a piece

For whatever reason 30% bonus was not working on Pro Day at all. Maybe today but yesterday not even The Ascent was working

Everything about this company is busted....  trying to add 4 games to my cart online for the 4/$20 ($9.99 & under) and of course its not triggering that promo in checkout...

Good luck getting Gamestop to let you trade in 200 of anything. Or even 5.

Yeah I know how the trade system works. Sometimes have to wait. Me and the wife and kids all have an account for that same reason. Not related but people trash on GameStop to much. Pro membership pays for itself in 3 months. 15=60 a year? That's awesome. We have 4 accounts even if you never buy anything besides say Nintendo eShop cards pays for it.

Gamestop banned me for trading games in purchased from yard sales and pawn shops.

My wife just for living with me

My brother for having my last name

And deleted my mother’s account because they didn’t trust it.

They deserve all the bashing they get as a company.

I get a company protecting itself and it’s revenue but that’s ridiculous. If they are gonna be that crazy about it at least give customers some way to plead their case and fix it.

I'm sure your mother is just devastated to no longer be able to trade in games at GameStop. My condolences.

Since GameStop is sometimes cheeky..

Does the pro coupon expire need to be used before Wednesday?

I just picked up DNF Duel for PS5 and traded in some games and those all got an extra 20% bonus. It’s also not on the website but Ghostwire Tokyo currently has a $17 base value.

I’m sure the dude was abusing the shit out of his 4 accounts. You’re naive if you think GS just banned all of them willy nilly.

Gamestop and their websites sucks so much donkey dick but never believe when someone says they got banned for nothing.

I remember some dude bitching about Amazon banning their account “for nothing!” It turns out they bought and returned 7 or 8 MacBook pros. Dude legit didn’t think there was anything wrong with that.

Hopefully looking for another job that doesn't abuse him as much.
