Mass effect is G2L

Mighty bold of them to guarantee that we'll like it after the last game

BG2G1 360/PS3/Wii is back and seems to be working (though I noticed at least one random Wii game to which it wouldn't apply) but the games I wanted are sold out now. Thanks, Gamestop

Isn't refurb fee for retro stuff $0?

For things pre-Wii, yes.  If it's something that they would sell in-store, there is a refurb fee.  They still sell Wii/360/PS3 games in-store

I found a pretty scratched up copy of Wii sports resort at the thrift store for a $1.75. Think they will take it for trade in? I’m guessing they will just send it away to get refurbished.

You'll probably get charged a refurb fee.  If the game has any real value, I take those to a local shop to get them resurfaced at 4 for $10.  I also feel good knowing that the disc was resurfaced properly and wasn't ruined by Gamestop's machines

Looking for some advice: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and SMBU Deluxe are holding steady at $22 and $20 base currently. Would folks hold onto them for Friday in case of a stealth bump or is this as good as you think it will get with the 50% bonus.


They're on sale so it's a terrible time to trade them. They're evergreens so they will go back up eventually

This has to be the worst Pro Day. And Pro Day was never all that good anyway

There's a 20% trade-in bonus on controllers accessories...except it excludes PS4, Switch, and XB1 controllers.

 

wtf?

 

https://www.gamestop.com/trade/

 

(scroll down and then click more details, though I'm sure you all know that).

 

Also, I need to trade-in Tony Hawk 1&2 and Miles Morales on PS4.  I guess I'll see if the stores are starting the 50% promo.

So its pretty just for PS5 and Series X/S controllers? lol

The way GS has worked in the past is % are add first, then multiplied. So $10 * (1+10%+50%) = $16.00

 

My state pawn shop laws require an ID, so I believe both account + ID is banned.  :???:

That sucks.  Mine is up to the municipalities.  Some do and some don't for trade credit.  I tried opening a new account in my name and it let me trade once before being banned again.  I just trade on someone else's account, with their permission of course

Got a Switch game today and the generic cases now say "Certified Pre-owned. Cleaned, tested, guaranteed."

LOL

Also not a glitch.  100% intentional.

I would guess that they were having problems fulfilling orders during the holiday season when a customer purchased the last copy before it could be packed for the online orders

Update to the deliveries of that restock a few weeks back. Got 2 blatant counterfeit copies of Order of Ecclesia and my copy of Pokemon Explorers of Sky ended up being a $20 copy of Explorers of Time. Am I fucked if I try to get replacements? I would think they could throw me back in the queue like they did when they couldn't originally fulfill these.

It's dependent on stock.  If there are none in stock when you complain, they will just offer a refund.  That is what happened to me.  They let me keep the wrong game too.

Usually most are fufiled within a week or two including a recent order of mine. On the other hand a few weeks ago I had a game ship that I ordered last October. If you really want the game, just leave the order open and see what happens. Otherwise you'll probably have to contact customer service to cancel it.

Mine has only been 3 weeks.  It was my 4th game in the 4 for $20, so it's worth waiting.  Thanks

Anyone have any idea how long an online order will sit in "Awaiting product availability" before they just cancel?

Monthly coupon doesn’t work with dotd and most promos period.

You can typically use them with weekly sale items but sometimes you can only do it in-store.  It's so annoying because of how it's advertised that you can use it on "everything"

Shit like this is why I'm not even going to both renewing my pro when it comes up, because they keep trying to find new and inventive ways to screw the customer. The sooner they go out of business, the better, because they are doing nothing but making the game buying experience more toxic.

I'll put up with the abuse for the deals I get
