Gamestop, the shop that never stops. We have all been at the receiving end of Gamestop’s shady and downright dirty business dealings. Bring in a host of brand new games you didn’t want. Best they can do is 5 dollars or 6 dollars if you want in-store credit. It’s hard to believe their entire business model began with selling used games at a huge mark up. Of course, they did not stop at selling a used game for 30 bucks, no not Gamestop. They would go on to push their bogus Power Up Rewards card, which, unless you bought brand new games from Gamestop and honestly why would you in today’s digital market, it would cost more to get the card than any benefit you would get from it.

So how has Gamestop continued to stay in business? Well, aside from buying or running out of any and all competition, they are the only place for uninformed casual gamers to buy video games. Recently, they have pushed more merch than games, but the tactics are all the same.

They have everything from Pop Funko figures to gamer T-shirts, and while yes some of the designs are not bad, the expanded merch just seems generic and insincere. So how low do these guys go? Well, let’s take a quick peek at the secrets Gamestop doesn’t want you to know. Have you been ripped off or cheated by Gamestop?

    Lol I only got half way through and I'm done. This guy apparently just hates GameStop or had bad experiences I never had any of this happen. The only bad thing about GameStop is the bad trade in value. All the rest doesn't happen or happens very rarely. Also the power up card is very useful if you go there often.

    When it comes to stores, like Target, there is a back! Target was having a sale on games and movies and books. The sale was buy 2 get 1 free. Mix and match. I went in to buy some PS4 games and couldn't find the game on the Shelf even though it said it was in stock on the website. I asked the guy and he took a look on his employee device and said there were some in the "back". So he went back there and found it and brought it out for me to purchase.

    Caveat Emptor. I don’t begrudge anybody for wanting to run a business, or make money, and I have no illusions when I walk into a GameStop to purchase a game, or trade in existing games I rarely play anymore. Do the trade in values suck? Yeah, but find me a pawn shop or another second hand video game store that has better trade in values, and I’m there. I usually trade in about once or twice a year, and I walk out saving about five to ten bucks, depending on how many games I’ve brought in, on whatever game I’m purchasing, and if it’s used or not. I’m usually pretty content.

    Its been a long time since I saw a video that is so hideously wrong on so many of its points. This was obviously written by a salty gamer with zero clue on business at all.

  • Zippy Doo

    im always a console behind because im cheap. i get some great deals on xbox 360 games there and there is no gamble since i can return it within a week no questions asked if it sucks or i beat it.

  • Gamingcentral4459

    GameStop really ain’t that bad I shop there a lot and I save a lot of money with my power up rewards

  • Dustin Walsh

    Have you worked for GameStop? I feel as though you haven't. We haven't had a circle of life program for almost a year. It just sounds like you're butt hurt because something didn't go your way. Over 7 years here brah:)

    Speaking of grandmas buying games my granny One's bought Mario sports mix for the Wii

  • Devin Baltimore

    Haha, I Never used a GameStop rewards card and don't plan on it

  • Lord Ragnar 20

    Here is a secret 🤫 whenever you buy 2 get 1 from them ask for gift receipts for each one of the games and next day bring back the one you didn’t like for a refund of cash or credit. Try to buy new games that way you get the highest refund. So now you bought 2 games at 54.99 and returning one of them it means you bought 2 games for the price of one.

  • Jonathan Lemon

    I found a useful "hack" at gamestop I pre ordered one game putting 5 bucks in and you can transfer it to new pre orders. I have gotten so much pre order swag with that 5 dollars lol

  • vampluv120

    I use my rewards actually. Its very helpful if you go and buy stuff frequently. The points you earn can eventually pay for the membership so...

  • Savage C00KIE

    A GameStop employee actually went in storage and brought out a game! 😯

  • Andrew Shages

    I have to tell this story. I agree that GameStop is a horrible store. I agree with everything said in the video. But once I went to a GameStop looking for an controller for DJ Hero. The employee actually went to the back, found it, and gave it to me for free because it wasn’t in their system. The rare good experience with them
