  • Gamestop is making some HUGE changes to it's Pro Membership. The membership will go from $14.99 to $.19.99 a year, and the company will be doing away with the 10 percent off of pre-owned items and will give pro members a 5 dollars reward certificate, that if it is not used within the month, it expires.

    I just renewed the pro membership before I heard about this. Had to renew it when I got rage 2. Didn’t say anything about the price upgrade or the ditching of 10%. Not renewing it again. Gamestop is dead.

      If you only buy about 1 game a month this is better

          Why won't they just do a 20% off instead of 5 off certificate just once a month especially if pro membership is going up from 14.99 to 19.99 like wtf what a way to rip off your customers

            I work for Best Buy, but honestly I think they’re a lot better than GameStop. Sure, GameStop has exclusive bundles, but when you preorder a game at Best Buy, you get a $10 certificate.

                        When ppl start realizing that they actually don't own those digital games they only own access to the games, it's
                        gonna be to late. Y'all are gonna wish GameStop was still around for those physical hard copies

                            Yeah up until now I’ve kept shopping at GameStop... but it seems like they WANT to go out of business or something... I guess it’s time to go digital. I’ve been on the fence about going digital but GameStop is making it easy for me.

                                            GameStop should switch to like retro gaming, where they sell older games from older consoles. They do sell them online, but retro games are games where you want to inspect the game to see it's condition.

                                                          I really don't understand why anyone does business with GameStop, I went in about two weeks ago because they had the Astro c40 controller where no one else in the area where I live had it in stock, I had been curious for a while about this product and was pretty excited about trying it out, I stood in line to pay and almost handed my card over to the girl behind the counter, and it dawned on me that I wasn't sure I was going to like this controller that is only about 100 bucks less than my PS4 pro, so I said...if I don't like this I can bring it back right? She says with a straight face...you have 48 hours to bring it back and you can get cash back, however if the controller has been opened we won't be able to except it back, so I said...then what would be the fucking point in taking it home at all?! I continued, so you are telling me if I don't like this 200 dollar controller I can't simply return it - you guys charge me a restocking fee and everyone is happy? She says nope, so I walked about 100 yards to the Best buy in the same lot and ordered the controller from them, they had it for me the very next day, the way GameStop does business is so so slimy, I will never set foot inside their store's again, especially with Best buy starting to offer many of the same services that they do.

                                                              I used to be a huge fan of physical copies of games, but I agree it is dying. The biggest selling point of going to Gamestop for a physical copy is that physical games are often cheaper than retail. But now that we have things like the Steam sales, and Xbox Deals with Gold, often times I can find digital prices at or better than retail prices throughout the year. I can find a download of Assassins Creed Origins or The Wither 3 or Skyrim or Monster Hunter for 15 bucks - and then I don't have to get up to put in the game or wait for a disc to read/verify to play it. The size on the system is still the same, so I don't save anything by owning the game, and risk losing access to the game if it is ever lost/damaged.

They are doing very well in my neck of the woods due to the internet companies charging for downloads... Let that sink in a moment. Charging for ALL DOWNLOADS. 60 might be a bit high but tack on 2 extra each time you download anything over 50mb. Yeah Game stop is the obvious solution for us around here in my state. Just hope you guys don't suffer our fate. Monopolies are killing us over here on the east coast.

I ghosted Papa Johns when they changed their rewards program too, and they had the audacity to try to sell it to me as a better program when I knew damn well it wasn't and could do the math myself. Looks like GS gets to join them.

                                                                                          It hurts the consumer that spends a lot on used games, or at least over $50 a month. A better deal for people who buy 1 item and not always used. (if the $5 is off anything).


                                                                                          I am going to guess Gamestop is going to mail the $5 certificate to you. Seeing that $5 certificate will encourage you to go in and buy something. The 10% off you could forget about.


                                                                                          As long as you are buying something each month, you spend $20 and get $60. Gamestop has to try something, unlikely to make any difference though.
