#14179087 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by thehoweller on 17 June 2019 - 06:24 AM

I know for a fact that in the past their system has automatically generated reward certificates on a timed basis - effectively wasting 25Kish points I had stored.  I complained in passing to a nearby store manager about it and was just told that I'd have to keep up on it, as their system is continually updating (getting worse, he should have said).

I'm almost certain that I looked through my past emails and was given no notice that the above had happened, also.  I believe it was just done internally on their website, and no notifications were given solely to blow through the points of cheap-asses like myself.

I tried Offering him down twice.  Straight refused both times.  He drives a HARD ILLEGAL bargain.  I like him...so I only paid 37 for Judgment too.  XD

#14175089 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate $1 only !

Posted by thehoweller on 10 June 2019 - 03:52 AM

What's the conversion rate after you upgrade? I heard 3 to 2, but is that just for Game Pass or Gold as well?

The conversion rate is 3 months of Gold to 1 month of Ultimate.  Maybe Game Pass will trade for less or more...but I wouldn't suggest trying to add to your subscription post-conversion   XD

So if we manage to buy the EU version, we can't play the game on a US PS4 under a US PSN account?

I think I'll just resell the game and season pass, then rebuy the game through BBY at a sale price.

F€£& the season pass.

so did the return work?

I didn't need to go through the hassle. The PS+ and credit both stacked in one transaction, that night.

Sometimes the disc drive won't open when it's vertical and you need a paper clip to pull it out.

Awesome benefit.

#12555409 50% extra store credit on system trades at GS 3-6 to 3-15

Posted by thehoweller on 08 March 2015 - 09:56 PM

Traded in my Xbox One, PS4, 500GB PS3, 32GB WiiU and 15ish games, and my DS Lite.  Came out with nearly 1.6K in Gamestop credit.  10% coupon didn't work on the games either.

Any GCU members feeling buyers remorse at all?

$48+10GC (roughly $38)

$38 vs $22~

$16 to not worry about your GameStop account being blacklisted...not too bad.

I wouldn't have taken advantage of this had it been any other company than Gamestop, the thought of screwing them out of $39 really made my day.

95% of owners wish they would have waited to buy this at Gamestop for $12.

Proven fact.

Nice find...but there have got to be much cheaper options on Ebay.
