#14311714 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by CookieMonster156 on Yesterday, 10:47 PM

Something new, did my final boomerang of Overwatch/R6 siege and the associate took away $5 refurbish fee each, the games had light scratches but he said it’s a part of the store’s temporary ‘Covid cleaning procedures’.

He was nice about it and I didn’t argue because I’m just happy they didn’t notice I just bought the games a few blocks away. Could be because the games were not the cleanest looking discs either, anyone else get hit with this? Seems very YMMV

You got hit with the bullshit fee. They dont care about COVID, and its evident if you look at their subreddit page.

So apparently at least at my local gamestop according to the store manager, the whole trade in for a preorder for the 20-30% bonus thing, he is trying to stop the "abuse" of trading towards that game and either canceling the preorder or moving the preorder to a new game. Not sure if this is just him, or gamestop as a whole is trying to stop it. It only came up because I thought to get that bonus you had to keep preordering a new game and couldn't just pile it all on one game so I ended up with a ton of MLB preoreders as a result.

This may sound like a *gamestop sucks* rant and in part it does, but the manager is pretty cool to converse with and wasn't an a-hole about it.

So just curious if anyone else has run into this. Never seen it in all my years of gamestop.

granted he probably has no way of telling that I know of if about any bonuses towards a game aside from the MLB preorders.

Either way, interesting unique gamestop experience, and just curious if anyone else has seen store managers want to enforce the "whole trade in bonus goes towards the trade in bonus game instead of just 5 dollars."

Few things shock me, this shocks me

Nah that guy is an A-hole. You are not going to buy multiple copies of MLB and he knows that. He's increasing his personal numbers and then having a different employee take the hit when you come back to cancel them.

No it doesn't. As shitty as the changes have been, you'll still be getting a $5 cert every month that you can just use on Xbox/PSN/eShop credit. That alone is worth keeping the membership.

Elite is $30. Pro is $15.

Why would elite members pay $15 extra for the same benefits as pro members?

I received a $5 bonus on Fallout 4 PS4 despite it having a value of $1.50 on the website. Total was $6.65.

Sooo I guess it works on titles worth less than $2?

I did the "Guaranteed to Love It" promo with COD and I used a $10 PUR reward on it and the store manager said that she'd only give me back the amount I paid and not the $10. I'm going to contact CS because that seems like some bullshit.

So she overrode the system and instead of giving you the $59.99 gave you $49.99 in credit? If so, go ahead and blast her.

so, are all gamestop's doing this switch lite bundle stuff? i went in store to buy one and they said all they had were bundles with hugely overpriced sd cards. i did a hold online at the same store where it showed just the console was available and my hold was denied. maybe this and the talk of the lite still having drift problems is just a sign to stay away all together.

Burn them on the receipt. Looks like its just that store trying to get rid of Sd cards. There is no SKU for that type of bundle. online.

Nice. Carnival Games Xbox One TIV went up in price. Too bad the price at GS went up.

If you add it to cart, it shows the $12.99 price. I successfully checked out with two copies for $25.98 before cag16 and elite discount.

Rage 2 :ps4: :xb1: still a good GS to Amazon mover if you have elite pro during the b2g1.

High chance it will be refused. Amazon exclusive sku for both versions.

With how late the mwtjune19 tag went up, maybe this is for next week? They way have moved back to last weekend of the month again... or they could be killing SBs altogether.

If the GameStop Twitter/facebook mention a most wanted list later today, then this indeed is a “SB” weekend. They post that without fail every month.

I find it pretty sad that he comes here every couple of months to do the same thing over and over. Saying he has copies of threads that were previously deleted shows he has nothing else to do other than this. Maybe he should move on, but he most likely wont.

He has a vendetta with the users here and for some reason the Gamestop subreddit.

Sonic Mania PS4/XB1 are good trades from Redbox.

I know this thread is mostly about flipping to GS for credit, but I just had another experience that shows me why I do not even try to accumulate GS credit. Lego DC Super Villians is on sale for $20 new at GS whereas its at least twice at much at other stores. So I go on the site and set up an in-store pickup for it. I get the email to come get the game and its an open copy. Now, even though I was going to open it and play it with my 5 year old son tonight anyways, its the principle of it. It's not new in that condition and this is literally twice in a row they have done this to me. (the previous time was a game I bought new off their site and had it shipped to my house)

With all the things GS is bashed about, I keep experiencing most of the typical crap most of the time I shop there. And its not very often as I maybe have bought 5 things the last year from them. I am getting to the point of not caring if they close down in the future even though I know there will be some repercussions if they do that is not in favor of the gaming community. But I have been tired of their practices for a couple years now. With my Best Buy GCU expired, it sucks that I do not shop there as much as I used to and had to use GS this time.

Anyways, just had to get it off my chest and I will go enjoy the game with my son tonight. At least I didn't pay $50 for the game when it was released. I guess that is the silver lining of this situation.

Return it and price match them to Best Buy or Target. Guaranteed new copy and not a gutted one.

I bet Gamestop is increasing the MSRP to those Xbox One backwards compatable games right now. I give it before the end of the day.
