Wow!(Gamestop rant)

#1Liv3urwayPosted 4/5/2013 3:11:32 PM
I decided to take advantage of EB Games' trade 2 get $60 deal by trading in Playstation All-Stars and Persona 4 so I can get a controller bundle. I tell the clerk that i want to trade in those 2 games in exchange for the controller bundle since the value of it is equivalent to $60, excluding tax. The clerk then tells me the t2 for $60 only applies if you purchase Injustice: Gods Among Us. At this point, i was pretty upset because no where on their "Most Wanted" list or on their t2 get $60 promo does it state only applicable if you purchase Injustice: Gods Among Us. So i just took my games and left. Not going to shop at a store that excludes specific details regarding restrictions on their promos to their customers .

P.S. Also, i don't live in Winnipeg so restrictions don't apply.

Also if you don't believe me here's a link to their promo section

Yeah, this one is pretty much your fault for not reading the pretty damn clear fine print.....you know what, **** it....gamestop SUCKS!!!!!! Friggin' gamestop employee kicked my puppy, damn them, damn them to hell.

*Also, common sense should have already told you that there is no way in hell you was getting 60 dollars for those two specific games you were trading in. You should have already known there was going to be a catch, like for example one of the games being traded in had to be something recent, like tomb raider or something*

Their fault you can't read?


Also, As someone that knows a bunch of people that work for Gamestop...They hate you guys as much as you hate them...the only difference is they have a job and have been laid.

Technically you should be glad you were given ANY kind of deal.

P4 is worth below $15.

Dude the 2 games were part of their most wanted list so i could've taken advantage of the deal. Also, last time i did a t2 with them, they never had this regulation before. Although its kinda strange why they wouldn't accept my offer since they're not losing any money. However, i do admit i should've read the thing more carefully.
