#14201818 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by trip1eX on 22 August 2019 - 08:15 PM

I don't think the new Pro membership is supposed to impress people used to working the system.   :)

 

IT's supposed to make GS more money.  Make it easier to communicate the value of the membership by making the discount concrete.  $5 is always $5.  Their working theory is this is more attractive to and easier to understand for the average customer.  




#14003484 Best Buy Ad 5/27-6/2

I'm trying to see how many different ways to file a complaint on losing my points:

1) Arbitration in their terms and conditions
2) CFPB complaint for the credit card awarded points

Anybody have any other ideas? Of course I'm going to contact them and be nice about it first.

I would contact Al Sharpton.  He seems to be able to drum up lots of support for guilty folks who've been done wrong.  




#13870790 Gamestop Discussion (FAQ in 1st post)

Posted by trip1eX on 07 November 2017 - 09:24 PM

This isn't deal related (actually it might be, because Pops might be getting cheap really quickly), but it is related to our ongoing discussions about the future of Gamestop and their overall health...

 

Funko stock plunges in ‘worst first-day return for an IPO in 17 years’

 

https://www.seattlet...in-ipo-shocker/

 

Interesting but it's more of a comment on the IPO not being offered at an attractive price ( with big questions about the validity of the accounting)  rather than the strength of the underlying business.    

 

Although off the top of my head I think the underlying business  is based on a gimmick or novelty.   Seems to me interest in the figures  is a fad.  ONly so many one can buy before it's too many.

Where are the Breath of the Wild Black Friday deals? :(

 

You're 3 years too early for those. 




#13864208 CAG16 still not working for ELITE PRO (UNRESOLVED)

Posted by trip1eX on 30 October 2017 - 11:52 PM

You just need 2 accounts.  1 Pro and 1 Elite.  :)

 

But at the same time, it didn't escape me that CAG16 was back to stacking with Pro the day after the Retro sale ended.

 I got a Toad and 3pk from Target.  Not sure why.  Just cheap I guess. 




#13834051 Nintendo Switch Console Stock Thread - Mario Odyssey bundle announced

Posted by trip1eX on 18 September 2017 - 01:55 PM

I thought it looked rather apparent in the pictures of the box that the color was a "Mario Red" Vs. the standard neon red ones. The Mario ones are a deep dark red, while the neon bundle is clearly a "neon red" like a highlighter red would look(a softer, pastel like color).

 

Considering that bundle will probably sell like hot cakes, I don't really think they need to do much more, as that's just wasting advertising funds. When Mario arrives to rave reviews, this bundle is going to sell if it had two **** brown JC included. LOL

 

Oh you're talking the Goomba edition.

Saw 5-6 switches of each color at the target in Plainfield, IL. Looks like the demand is going down for these things. Also saw at least 10 of each color at the toys r us in downers grove, IL.

Or supply is increasing.

Maybe there should be 2 GS threads.  A FAQ thread and the weekly deal thread.  




#13773155 Nintendo Switch Console Stock Thread - Mario Odyssey bundle announced

Posted by trip1eX on 09 July 2017 - 04:32 AM

why is there such a big hype for this system?  I really dont get it.

for 2017 the only nintendo exclusives are Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Oddysey and Splatoon 2

 

I don't get it either.  4 big exclusives.  Why would anyone want a system with 4 big exclusives in one year.  

 

Nevermind that it's a portable and a console all in one.  If anyone figures it out let me know too.

I made a few bonehead trades.  I thought Uncharted 4 was a good trade, but turns out it was worth like $5.   It cost me $11.  

 

Same thing with Kid Icarus.  I think it cost me $20 and traded in for $13.  Whoops.  

 

Either my memory was faulty on those trades or they dropped in price sometime during the weekend.
