GameStop said that only a few consumers know that you can actually trade games for cash or store credit and majority doesn’t know anything about this.
What? The employees literally tell you every time you walk in.
Yep so truue!
I guess only a handful of gamestop customers know how to read... I mean "TRADE IN YOUR GAMES FOR [fill in the percent]" is plastered all over every entrance to every gamestop I've ever been in
Yea that's hard to believe.
I think they're confusing "know" with "care", thrift shops pay more than EBgames
Like anyone who's stupid enough to trade there.
Have you met humans, though? They're terrible at listening. And worse at understanding.
I assume you don't consider yourself human?
Huh? I don't understand what you're saying.
KnifeFight is right. I've been watching people for years. You can put a big sign right in front of peoples' faces, and people won't read it. They'll walk right by it without paying a single heed to it. He's also right about listening. People don't bother paying attention. I see it every day of every week of every month of every year. I guess most people just don't bother thinking anymore...
Every time I have went into a Gamestop to buy a new game, they always try to sell me the used copy of the game. That's every single Gamestop I have been in, so somebody is telling a big fat lie.
They did it to me too with bf3, but i was like no cause then i would have to buy the online pass from psn. Anyway i never buy preowned lol.
Its based on their survey. Customers must be hitting no when asked if they are informed of trade program. Which is dumb because of all the marketing used to push trades. People just dont pay attention to their surroundings is all
You'd be part of the 40% they mention. You have no idea how vapid the majority of people are unless you get to work retail, or a job where you have to deal with them on a daily basis. And I'd agree with that %, having worked there for far to long.
that doesn't mean they listen. i work there, you won't believe how many people ask questions when the answer is literally hanging in front of there face. "Where are your 360 games?" "On the wall where it says 360 games" some people literally go in there completely oblivious to EVERYTHING "Im looking for a game but i don't know what its called or what it looks like or what system its for" instead of the Gamestop hate, why don't we bash to stupid consumers who exist in the world.
40% isn't exactly a handful...
I call shenanigans.
Every GameStop employee I've ever dealt with, in every GameStop I've ever been in, has gone out of their way to ask if I have anything to trade.
Who wants to trade in their games for 15 cents anyway
thats why you wait till you get the extra 40% for trade in towards new games. I do it all the time, and always get a lot of $$$ for my trades. I rarely ever pay full price for a game
ooo 20 cents instead of 15.
nobody is telling you trade in your Madden 2009
Trade in a game for 1% its worth or sell it on ebay or buy games at used game prices at launch on pc, decisions decisions decisions.
Im blown away people sell their games here anyways. eBay gets you way more, and its easy, if you find ebay hard well then you have issues sorry. What is probably worse is people go there and buy these used games to save a whole $5. I remember a bit after BF3 came out I actually saw people buying used copies of it for 54.99, for any game buying used to save $5 is ridiculous to me, but whats bad is it had a $10 online activation BS. Which in this case is gamestop knowingly Fing customers because they know damn well these people likely don't know about that online fee and yet sell the game for that price and don't say a thing
It's not that EBay is hard to understand, it's that most people are that lazy.
Every time I call the first thing they say is this is gamestop where we buy and sell used games. Pretty clear
As a consumer, gamestop must assume that when I step into their store and see "USED" stickers on over half the games on the racks, that they just magically came from no where. Interesting.
Maybe its cause once you hear something repeated over and over and over and forcefully so then you push it out of your mine and forget about it.
I call BS!!
Hard to believe this. Gamestop forces the trades speech and pre-order speech on their customers. Employees are just doing their job, but I leave ready to shoot up the place.
Do you want a pre-order with that? Do you want power up rewards card? Extra trade in bonus with it.. I think most people know
They know Gamestop, most people just don't feel like getting $3 for a game they paid $60 a few months prior. I would rather use mine as a drink coaster.
you never get $3 for a game that you Just payed $60 for. game trade ins don't dip any lower than $15(Base price) after a few months. But a few months to me is 3months, its probably mean 22months to you.
It's called sarcasm. look it up. (But i'm not too far of)
Don't misunderstand knowing with ignoring...most of your smart customers won't trade nor sell their games to you at a loss. I shudder at the thought of walking into a Gamestop with ALL their employees greeting me and trying to sell me some sh*t I don't want...yes, they gotta make a living, but geez, lol. trade? pre-order? reward card? magazine? yikes!
Only a handful of customers care about trading there games in for store credit everyone else wants cash for obvious reason or they realize you don't get crap for trading in.
I am assuming there referencing the moms that buy their kids games there
Why would you trade in at gamestop, when you can get more from sam goody/ f.y.e?
