#14255263 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by SaberMatrix on 12 January 2020 - 10:28 PM

Last day for pre-existing Pros to get their 10% off is the 16th. Same for the remaining elite's it seems. Some elite members are receiving emails about being able to call CS and receive refunds for their memberships, but cannot confirm the entire email.

 

After that itll just be the 5 dollar monthly coupons, 10% trade boost, pro days, etc.

 

If you DO get the email, expect CS to not know shit. Their outsourced CS is not the best team.

The amount of people being proud of return fraud and the lengths people will go to, is just stupid. We are adults, act like it. Don't be children, if you're purchasing something, dont try to "get one over" on the store, and either return it if you dont want it, or keep it. Don't swap innards or put your old one inside to return it. Thats really scummy, childish, and gross. 




#14179104 NEW Secret of Mana (PS4) $9 shipped

Posted by SaberMatrix on 17 June 2019 - 10:59 AM

I didn't know that. I still have my copy sealed...I'll get to it one of these days.

Yeah, I remember when it was announced they were very quiet on a physical release and internal Gamestop messaging basically made it seem like they pushed Square to print some physically, and they heavily suggested interested people to preorder because it was going to be a very small, one time print run. To the point they said about a week before launch that dont expect any to many extras because preorders almost ate through the entire printing. We had about 10 preorders and got like 2 extras I think? My store was a big store too, getting higher priority. They said they were able to get another small run done afterward, so every store got like 8 copies and thats what they have/had since.

Must've been a timed exclusive. Bendy was exclusive for only 6 months.

It was not timed, shockingly. It was also supposed to be a single small print run, but preorders almost ate through the entire print run, so Gamestop convinced Square to print more, or they helped pay for more. I was an employee at the time of release. It sold well and Gamestop made a big deal that they struck a deal with Square to get it physical.

Thanks for posting, but please for the love of all that is terrible, fix that title.

 

I laugh at Days Gone being $20 already.  Sales must've been horrendous..

Days Gone is surprisingly selling really well from the numbers that have come out.




#14168787 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by SaberMatrix on 26 May 2019 - 07:39 PM

Worst day of my life at target! I found game of thrones books leather clothed edition. The lady at the register took off online item sticker and scan the original barcode. She said I can’t give you the price for that sticker. What!? They called the manager and said the same thing. They offered 10% off of original. They said I need to make sure that the guy at electronics section said the it’s the right price. What?! That’s not my job. This is why I don’t go to target at worst part the city. Always some BS, never happened to me at location I usually go.

Survey that up or complain vs CS. Target is pretty usually good about it, especially since that seems like blatant employee BS.




#14168160 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by SaberMatrix on 24 May 2019 - 11:22 AM

So went to a Walmart that showed 8 of the 25 dollar hard drives. Guy was nice enough to even sort through the 3 carts of clearance in the back, but found NONE. Called another walmart closer to home but in the other direction that showed 7. "nah man, we dont have any." and then when mentioned they were clearance and if theyd be somewhere else "Some dude came in and bought like alllllll the big clearance stuff as soon as it hit clearance so....." 

 

It sounded like I was talking to Jeff from American Dad.




#14160671 NSW: Final Fantasy XII - Walmart $41.86

Posted by SaberMatrix on 30 April 2019 - 06:33 PM

Walmart is just about marking every single game down. All 60 dollar games are 49 at launch or within a few days. Days Gone is there, as is Mortal Kombat, and Yoshi's crafted world. Dont see really any game at MSRP.




#14159564 All $60 MSRP games are $50 at Walmart except Days Gone (YMMV?)

Posted by SaberMatrix on 27 April 2019 - 03:24 PM

Probably a slow clearance of games? Maybe they're dropping them altogether like Target seems to slowly be doing.

I think its mainly because of GCU and Amazon discounts no longer being a thing, so they want to be the actual cheapest. And Target's around me arent slowly dropping games, they still have plenty, carry plenty, and get plenty.




#14151517 Five Below $5 games

Posted by SaberMatrix on 05 April 2019 - 12:03 PM

Let's be honest with ourselves. SF Zero isn't even worth $5. Easily among the worst Nintendo developed games released in recent memory.

 

Game may have seriously damaged the SF brand. Nintendo should have just cancelled the game and launched it on the Switch.

Platinum made the game, nintendo INSISTED it be mainly motion controls with the gamepad, and Platinum tried to tell them it wouldnt work, but nintendo wouldnt listen. 

 

And we got that. Yuck.

 

 

 

Saw both ps4/xb1 infinite warfare the other day, and the bee movie on Blu-Ray.

Not exactly VG related, but yesterday for some reason the SW Black Series 6' L3-37 scanned at 0.03 at my local walmart. More 3 cent items out there.

 

Edit: Val is also showing up as 3 cents. UPC: 630509731060




#14110443 Playstation Classic $35.99 Target Cartwheel YMMV

Posted by SaberMatrix on 26 December 2018 - 10:56 PM

I got it to work relatively easily. my store has about 2/3 of their stock not behind glass with spider wraps on it, and I just went to a self checkout, had the woman helping there match the website, and then after she walked away, I scanned cartwheel. Definitely YMMV.

#14073361 Meijer Sales/Clearance Thread

Posted by SaberMatrix on 31 October 2018 - 12:42 PM

Meijer in Colerain Ohio had Steel Black, Wave Blue and Silver Dualshock 4 Controllers on Clearance for $50.

 

Labo customization kit was clearanced at $2.49

 

Final Fantasy Royal edition on Xbox One was on sale for $9.99.

 

Didn't see a thread of anything like it, so figured i'd give it a whirl.

 

For those who are not sure what Meijer is: It's a retail chain out of Michigan that is similar to Walmart, without the feeling of being a warehouse. They currently operate in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. They are very behind in the online push, so dont expect much to be online.




#13900516 PayPal - $5 off $20 Nintendo purchase

Posted by SaberMatrix on 06 December 2017 - 06:43 PM

did you purchase through nintendo.com, or switch eshop? Also, did you have any existing balance? If it's less than $20 would you still get the discount?

I got it working. I got 20 in currency, and it charged me 15 and discounted the 5.
