Huh?  I just used my double dip in store and online for 20$ Steam cards to go with my shiny new steam deck. 

The monthly coupon works online for it,  the credit doesnt.    If you want to use both has to be in store.  Steam is weird in restrictions sometimes.

Do canceled preorders still result in detected PUR points? I preordered the Bayonetta 3 Trinity Masquerade Edition in-store last week before its contents were confirmed when Best Buy's listing went live and wouldn't mind moving to a different preorder, but if PUR points are deducted, I might just keep it, pick up the edition at release, then return it later.

They literally just have to type #clearance into their search bar....lmao

This one manager who was in the company for over 10 years (poor guy) literally tried everything he could think of and nada.

Makes things more confusing when a lot of the games in store are not clearance online and vice versa.

Fun fact: the Cyberpunk 2099 Xbox One X is a Part of clearance, as well as a ton of old Xbox One S bundles. Probably on the off chance one store in the country still has one of these somewhere.

How do you know if any GS has those One S bundles?

They don't.  They're all long gone.  Gamestop doesn't remove skus like that from the system because they have to be able to run a return on them for warranties, but I promise there hasn't been any left for awhile unfortunately.

So when exactly did GS purge their PS3 stock?

They killed most trades a bit ago,  some stores may still have some stock but 1.5 stores weren't supposed to have it for years at this point.

I just started shopping at gamestop again recently and I am 0/5 on correct shipments from them. Maybe 1/5, I'll let one slide.

 

First up I ordered seagate hard drives a couple months back. They shipped one correct, one was the wrong model.

 

Second I ordered the Resident Evil Village CE... they shipped a standard vanilla copy. I'll let that slide, they said it was a website error.

 

Ordered a few new games with saved points. All came sealed/new. One had a loose disc and broken plastic, could have happened in transit. I don't blame gamestop for that one, they shipped a new copy to me.

 

Replacement order comes... gutted preowned copy with a scratch on the disc and someone's clearly defined fingerprint. They ship another copy...

 

Third replacement comes today... gutted preowned copy AGAIN. Chatted with them today, they're shipping a fourth copy out to me now...

99.99% chance no GameStop in the country actually has them. Probably just clearanced out due to age of the SKU. If a GameStop actually had one on clearance, it's long gone by now since the promo started almost 2 weeks ago.

How or why? I specifically asked a question regarding that on the phone today. I don’t want to be contacting them for their constant mistakes, and asked is it bad for me that I keep having to call because of these issues. They assured absolutely not and even rewarded me bonus power up points out of the blue for the troubles.

The games usually ship from stores. Unless you're buying a recently released game, they're all going to be guts - it's very unlikely you'll get a sealed copy. When they send you a replacement, they have no way to tell if it'll be a sealed copy. The replacement is supposed to be appeasement and they're assuming you're being honest about the games being in poor condition. They already gave you three free copies of a game. You're not meant to keep calling them until you get a sealed copy.

I don't want the extra copies nor anything free, just what I paid for, a new/sealed game. I have already offered to them to return everything to my local store. I even told the last rep who offered me power up points as an apology that it wasn't necessary, please just fulfill my order of a NEW game as it isn't for me, I'm not gifting a gutted game.

Yeah, regardless of the validity of your position and argument, i’d be embarrassed myself asking for a 4th replacement copy of the same game.  Especially if they are letting you keep the extras, handing out bonus points and more.

CS has no power to do anything but replace the order and give out points. LP will ban your account when you cross whatever threshold they determine to be abusive, the two groups don't talk to each other and CS can do nothing once that ban happens. You aren't getting a new copy unless you go find one in store so keep it up and you will get banned.

Clear enough for you?

What's the best way to use the $5 monthly coupons for Steam currency? Are the $20 wallet cards as good as it gets?

Pretty much. I believe that's the lowest denomination you can buy

It takes a special kind of bootlicker to argue in defense of this bullshit. If you pay for a new game, you should get a new game.

I don't think anyone is defending Gamestop here, just making the observation that getting a game sent from a random store is not the way to get sealed games, and getting replacements sent over and over can get you an LP ban.

Maybe LP should signal to someone that they shouldn't be selling "new" games if they can't fulfill the orders. As much as I would not want to return a product 4 times and keep badgering CS, that is such BS.

You can find $10-$500 cards in store only. I recommend getting a $10 in store for $5 with the coupon and then double dipping with a $20 online for $15.

Those variable cards haven't been printed in 2+ years.  Most stores wont have those remaining.  The $20 is the minimum for still printed cards.
