Yeah, you are fine. I think GameStop bans are mostly related to trades. Unless you are returning every single thing you buy, even if you only kept like 50% of it, they should still never be in a position of losing money overall. Trades that’s a possibility for them. I think as long as they are not losing money overall and you aren’t stealing or committing return fraud, they wouldn’t have any reason to ban you other than an associate feeling the need to get personally involved out of concern, annoyance or spite. They can’t be in the pre-owned with no description and pretty much no verification of condition business, plus selling opened display copies as new without expecting a large amount of returns.

Trades have specific numbers that cause bans, returns probably don’t? Has anyone ever been banned for anything other than winning too much with trades?

When they actually had retro stuff I bought a bunch of games and had several wtf moments including a ps1 disc split like pac man. I returned hundreds of dollars worth of junk/defective stuff and did not have any issues. Eventually I got sick of the random condition lottery and stopped ordering retro stuff. I did get a copy of Xenogears in okay shape with case, cover art (with a little moisture damage) for $10 so there were some wins that kept me playing longer than I should have.

A few random returns should not cause any red flags, that said there seem to be unexplained bans going around so who knows.

On ps3 and vita the purchase date for all ps plus games will update to whatever the date was that you last entered a code for plus. i.e. if you entered a code on 4/15/2021 all of your plus titles will update the expiration date and show as being "purchased" that day. They should all be in one block of you download list.

Which doesn't surprise me. I mean why would they enable something that was advertise as a selling point of the product? The whole "Ship it now, sell it to you on lies & we promise we'll fix it later....maybe...if we feel like it. We already have your money afterall." mantra the industry thrives on worked so well for games why not apply it to hardware.

This basically sums up the entire state of gaming. We are heading to the day one patch being the game in its entirety. Get something half functional on disc and ship it. We will try to have it working by release day...

Got a Switch game today and the generic cases now say "Certified Pre-owned. Cleaned, tested, guaranteed."


They tested it... tested it to see if it fit in the generic case.
Great success!!!
Oh and they also used their shirt to clean the pins and scratch the discs, also a win!

I bought my Wii-U with a buy 2 get 1 free, but that was several years ago. It definitely has happened, but that does not mean it will happen again.
