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.


Two of those 4 accounts were not mine. I wish I could underline that part. Two of them I was using for sure. If they wanted to ban me in 2018 pre Covid then sure because I was an ass, and I’ll eat that. But now, no it makes 0 sense to me.

That being said, I still purchased with them and helped their bottom line with gpg, prp, pur, res, upt, and used. They got over on me as much I them. They are just in a tizzy because I know their system and that their snitch happy policing ass managers knows it and me from former employment. That’s shitty of them. Hell, this forum alone explained exploits for over a decade so by that end everyone, including you as a veteran, were abusing their system.

I didn't get banned "for nothing", I got banned for no GOOD reason.

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.

That's why I used my brother-in-law's account to trade. 

 

I do hope no strangers with my last name get magically banned.

I put several items in my cart for the 4 for $20 sale (finally found four that apply) to hold until payday. When I went back to look, the deal had disappeared. I was confused until I saw that one of the four games had gone up in price and no longer counted for the deal. Stupid Gamestop.

Would a screenshot of the email help out in-store?

Holy shit. Here I am just minding my fucking business going to GS to redeem my $5 monthly coupon on eShop.

 

GS employee is pushy as Fuck on renewing (extending) my membership even though it's not expired. Even goes as far to say it's "FREE" several times. I know that he's just bullshitting me because he'd just use my saved points to renew it, so it's not really free. I declined. He probably insisted like 3 or 4 times about renewing and I said "No, not today" every time. Not once did I even give an indication I wanted it. He says okay and wraps up the transaction.

 

Roughly 30 mins later I get an email that my PUR points have been used to redeem for a new year of PUR Pro membership. I thought I made the mistake of not paying close enough attention to the screen/receipt...but now that I look at it again, it's not on even on my receipt! So this fool kept my PUR info on the computer and redeemed my points without my consent. I hardly shop/trade at GS anymore, so I don't recall what my expiration date was. It now says Sept 2023 on the website, but it could have already been extended that far due to the previous points promos they had that basically made the renewals free.

 

I was initially reluctant to burn this dude on a survey if I fucked up because I literally only went in to get a $5 eshop for nothing, but since it happened after I was in the store and I have no in-store receipt for this PUR Pro "purchase", I think it more than justifies it...even if this scam is some bullshit concocted by a store leader / district leader to help hit their metrics. This is straight up deceitful.

 

Edit: Dug through some emails and I found that I redeemed for two PUR renewals last year in Sep/Oct. Meaning I was already active until Sept 2023...so unless the GS website is slow to update, homeboy literally stole points from me.

Check online to see if your points were redeemed, it should show under activity

Credit can't be used to purchase Steam online, only in store.

Any idea if we should expect a 4th of July deal this weekend or not really? Don’t recall if they normally run promos for it.

Posted 01 July 2022 - 08:33 PM

Today when i was checking out online, under payment options it said PowerUp Rewards Credit Card ****2468 with my name under it. So i never applied for a credit card and know i wouldnt be approved for one because im unemployed with little to no income. I asked gamestop help through twitter and they just gave me a number to call. Has anything like this happened to anyone here?

Theres nothing in my purchase history i didnt buy, and i changed my password just in case.

you would be surprised. Comenity Bank runs Gamestop's credit card and they pass out credit like candy to kids. credit with near 30% interest. also the fact that they are experiencing an outage right now that is affecting access to accounts is somewhat concerning. I would check your credit and see if anything has popped up on there recently.

i believe it is annualcreditreport.com, gives you access to the 3 major bureaus once per year. I would suggest doing 1 for now just to check. if it has been opened on 1 it would be on all 3 usually. just your reports are free, credit scores aren't included.
