When returning games bought online in store, do you have to give a reason for returning ? Can I just say I didn’t like it ? (Returning a game because it came incomplete)

Why wouldnt you just tell them the real reason? Doubtful but maybe if enough people return for that reason, things could change for better. I still have to return Ys VIII switch for same reason, will do so when using the email $10 off coupon.

You overlooked what he overlooked : if they wanted to make as many sales as possible, they'd allow the deal to also occur in-store. They are not allowing it (presumably -- possibly a glitch, but a conveniently timed one).

That had been the crux of my considerations which he had responded to.

Yes, because during an ongoing pandemic they want more people trying to crowd into their relatively small stores. Buy your games online and let your mailman or a UPS driver deliver the games.

Edit: Just skip the sale, Ive stopped buying games that i think ill get to later. Especially used, from Gamestop online, where im afraid of payment issues let alone not getting a case.

It would work but unfortunately the online coupons don't seem to be working for most, if not all, people on here - I don't think it would be worth the gamble using it on a $50 coupon then having to call them up and wait for hours on the phone trying to get your points back

Very true. Last year maybe a $25 online didnt work but then a $50 did. I should probably just wait until I can go in-store.

Bought the PS4 Pro when it was on sale for Pro Day and ended up with the 7100...I only had the quieter 7200 previously. Goodness this thing really is loud. Anyway to make it quieter? My wife heard it and said it has to go if it stays as loud as it does.

Maybe just turn the volume on the tv up?

How did you get the cert? Only reward showing up for me is to renew my membership (LOL, no thanks).

Use the website not the app.

Order and pay online.
Go to store.
Call store when youre there, what type and color car youre in even your plate number.
Pop your trunk.
Gamestop employee throws your stuff in trunk. Shuts trunk. Goes inside and washes hands.
Drive home, open trunk get stuff go inside and wash your hands.

Was able to grab a copy of Division 2 PS4 in store for $5 minus my $5 monthly coupon = free.

Tempted to flip it for $8.30 credit towards my cyberpunk preorder later today but worried the GS employee will get suspicious

Two trips to Gamestop is not worth $3.30

The $250 trade in deal on a switch....can it be a launch gray joycon version?

No. That gets $150. Latest version gets $200. Pretty sure only PS4 Pro and XBOX 1 X will get $250.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons (both physical and digital) have been added to the $10 reward eligible list.

Physical comes with a free phone badge.

Nice. This was my last order with GCU. Still actually have one day left, might preorder some other Nintendo games.

I just had one of my white basic wiius accepted using the ebay cradle and stands. Thanks for the tip on buying the cheap stands on ebay

Glad it worked out for for you. Mine is in transit and hopefully will be accepted too.

My 8gb Wii U I sent in for trade in got rejected. Included everything BUT the stylus and the u-shaped console stands. The gamepad joysticks had slight yellow discoloration, so thinking that may have been why it was rejected.

And drum roll please, it was rejected because it didn't include the stylus.

So you sent it in with the black cradle and stand then? Last time my complete in box white 8gb basic Wii u got rejected for missing those.

I’ll bite - what does that stand for?

Think he means csac or cash same as credit

#14225354 YMMV new Best Buy Mystery Rewards Certificate

Posted by johnston306 on 05 November 2019 - 12:45 PM

Same here. Probably because they take us for granted. Gotta love companies who reward people who DONT shop with them.

They're not rewarding them; they're enticing them to come into the store and spend money...
