#14336041 Xbox Series S/X Re-stock Thread

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 20 October 2020 - 03:58 AM

Since the payment plans add up to a higher amount than the MSRP I'm hoping that when we preorder we won't be expected to sign up for the bundle and pay the remaining difference (with the Game Pass add-ons, etc.).

The all access plan is cheaper than the retail cost of the console and 2 years of game pass. Both for the S and the X.

#13856280 Need advice on a possible ebay scammer

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 19 October 2017 - 06:07 PM

If you haven't filed a usps complaint. You should do it, this is the only way for scammers to get the message. With fines and chances of imprisonment if they have done it before. Letting them get away with ripping people off will only cause them to do it more.


Postal theft punishment is up to 5 years and up to $250,000 in fines. And getting a scammer back feels amazing.

If it says it has been delivered to your place contact the usps inspector general. The person could work for the usps and its on there delivery route and never delivered it. Or they went to your place and stole it if it was left out front.


A few years ago I had a buyer say an item I shipped them never arrived. I went to the usps site and filed a complaint about a package and got called by the inspector general a couple days later and he said it had been delivered. The buyer contacted me and "forgot" they had received it. Postal theft happens all the time and they will prosecute the people involved to the full extent of the law.

I'd still contact ebay/paypal and said you never received the item. Even though he showed he shipped it. If it doesn't say delivered to your place then you should win. I would contact them and complain up a storm.

#13754003 Is this a good time to Upgrade to PS4 Pro?

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 25 June 2017 - 07:26 AM

Depending on your location you would be able to get more from craigslist, ebay, or even amazon will give you more for your trade in. Craigslist you should be able to get around $200 for just the console. And probably the same with ebay before selling fees. Amazon the trade in is $122-$150 depending on the model/bundle. But those prices change every day.


But it all depends on personal opinion if you feel that spending close to $300 to upgrade is worth it.

#13625864 Digital Version Halo Wars 2 includes both PC and Xbox One (Play Anywhere) for...

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 10 February 2017 - 08:32 AM

I ordered the digital ultimate edition on the xbox store (xbox one) a few weeks back and couldn't play halo wars 1. I tweeted to xbox support and they got back to me super quick and said they send a code for halo wars 1 within a week (7 days). Which seemed odd to me. But I got my code for the game around a week later. Not sure if its still the same way with the game around a week before its released.


I figured I'd let people know though.

#13499112 Best Android Phone for $200 or Under?

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 25 October 2016 - 06:48 AM

The moto x pure came out last year and I believe there have been sales on it for around $200. Or the alcatel idol 3 or 4 is a good android phone with some interesting bonuses on it.

#13410331 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 22 July 2016 - 09:49 PM

Worked at Walmart while in college. You get paid poorly. Treated poorly. Do everything right...doesn't matter. Still get treated like the employee that never shows up. I love it when people who have no clue are surprised when they can't find help. The majority of the time workers in one department can't be found so you have to get someone who has no clue what they are doing. Then customers bitching about the employee that is trying to help them. Not defending Walmarts practice as a whole...I am defending employees that get treated like crap for working hard which in turn forces them to be less motivated.

In regards to the above quote. There is times when you are completely clueless to how the store operates because only the department manager gets told what's going on then the second they leave for the day...every employee in that department just has to wing it. Store managers are no help. Most of the time they say 'yeah hold on' then never show up. Keep that in mind next time you see an employee that is obviously bothered.

The way your treated depends on the location so much. I've worked for great companies with garbage employees/supervisor's that don't do anything. And I've worked for companies that bend over backwards for the good employees. 


But dealing with the public is a horrible experience. Dealing with 1 rude customer out of 99 good customers still sucks. That's why customer service is so hard. Because so many people think they are special and entitled to treat other people like garbage.

#13354529 Media storage.

Posted by SchmidtA99 on 04 June 2016 - 08:21 AM

I have two of these:


http://smile.amazon....s=media storage


They aren't the highest quality. But have held up for the last few years very well (not falling apart like most cheap furniture). Blank spots you can tell how cheap the back section is. When they are full they look good. They are always between $30-35. Any other storage items around that price do not hold as much.
