I'm still waiting for my gift cards been almost 30 min now...

Still waiting on my two orders as well that I placed around 6:50PM EST. Wondering if they caught and put them on hold or something.

There is, as usual, a mountain of terrible headsets & keyboards to navigate around.

That is painfully accurate every time! :lol:

Just a quick heads up - Amazon did start a 20% off select warehouse item sale :) States it goes through the 30th.

Yep, it looks like one of my local Meijer stores (48838 area) had another round of price reductions. Some decent finds this time, such as Death Stranding for $6 (90% off), Fire Emblem Three Houses for $30 (50% off) and a handful of other games such as Apex Legends, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Just Dance 2016/2017, Deadly Premonition 2, etc. for 50% to 75% off. They also had a bunch of copies of Yo-Kai Watch 2 (3DS) for $4.

Yep, division 2 is properly marked $5 in store... they just missed updating the website. Even if it comes to Game Pass, still a great price in my opinion :)

$22.17 (A) Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Master Edition Deluxe

I ordered one of these a few days ago under $20 when it was a part of the extra 20% promo. Arrived missing slipcover and the disc was loose but the steelbook was sealed.

Sadly looks like the 20% is dead across the board.


Thanks for pointing this out :) I missed the 20%, but grabbed an Xbox Acceptable version for $23. It arrived today in sealed condition... the clear slipcover has a slight bend on the corner but everything else was sealed and perfect. Time to dive in!

Count me in for a cancellation e-mail. I only did one order of 4 games as well :( I paid with a gift card. I received two of the games, but my two free games (Mario Maker 2 and Link's Awakening) were awaiting availability. Great, time to deal with customer service :\

 

Like others have mentioned, both games I'm waiting on are in stock (multiple copies) at every gamestop around me. I wonder if they went through all the orders that used CAG16 or something, although unlikely.

Posted by Katsumi on 01 January 2020 - 10:50 PM

Still waiting on Mario Maker 2 and Links Awakening to ship - they are both awaiting availability. I ordered around 8am on the 25th. Really hoping that they don’t cancel them because I hate dealing with their customer service :( fingers crossed for those of us still waiting!

GameStop had a special holiday message for me this morning:

 

Request Header Too Large

I get that message all the time! Usually clearing cookies for gamestop.com will fix it.

This might be a bit off topic, but going to gamerankings.com now links to Metacritic. Should me think hack?


I believe gamerankings.com announced they are shutting down, hence linking to Metacritic. Both sites were / are owned by the same company I think.


#14242046 Gamestop 4/$20 all pre-owned titles $9.99 and below

Posted by Katsumi on 07 December 2019 - 05:04 PM

This apply to retro games online?

N64 games are working, but I haven't tried other systems. The $4.99 and 9.99 (and under) games should have the red text saying they are eligible.




#14226903 New Monthly $5 Dollar Cert for Power Up Rewards Pro

Posted by Katsumi on 08 November 2019 - 10:37 PM

It’s worth noting that the 10% preowned discount is going away with this new program. I’m not sure why it still shows on the info page, but everywhere else I’ve read that the discount is being dropped.


#14226080 Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition (PS4) - $19.99 @ Amazon

Posted by Katsumi on 07 November 2019 - 04:32 AM

Is this the one that's a remaster of the "best tales games"?

 

I'd never really played any of the tales games, they never seemed like my taste. But I see this one come up the most often. Wondering if I should give it a shot. 

Yes, Vesperia and Abyss (in my opinion) are the two Tales games that a large portion of fans consider the best of the series. It does start a little bit slow with basic combat, but you open up more skills and combat options as you play - it ends up being really fun :)

 

Very good cast of characters, the definitive edition gives you plenty of outfits to use, and good story throughout most of the game. I'd highly recommend giving it a try. Be sure to try out all of the characters in combat to find the ones you enjoy the most!

YMMV of course, but my local Meijer marked their entire stock of Pixel Pals 75-90% off. Most of them are $1.50 except for the ones with two figures.

Starlink starter sets and figures are also 75% off now. I spotted some of the Plug-in Arcade (like galaga) at 75% off too.

Definitely worth checking out... seems like they finally increased the discount on many clearance items.

Wow, $2,000 in trade in credit?!  I don't even think I have been able to amass $200 worth in credit within 90 days.

Their promotions (such as B2G1 and 50% trade-in boost) use to occur at the same time occasionally in the past, which made it very easy to approach the limit. Summer of 2017 (Flippageddon?) was the best weekend I have ever done, with needing two accounts to avoid the limit. They had a stealth bump in values, plus B2G1, plus a 70% boost I believe. I spent most of the weekend driving around to different Gamestops!

 

They really haven't had promotions overlap in the past year though, and I doubt we'll ever see something that good again. I've significantly cut down on my trade-in's this year.
