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?

    So in a Nutshell, Buy and Trade-In at your own Expense, Don't Subscribe to the Rewards or Warranty Programs, and Don't Buy "Exclusive" content or other Merch that has been used or pre-owned.I take it that's all there is to say really, GameStop used to be an Economical Solution for the bargain bin Gamer in it's infancy but soon enough became part of the reason why Games now have a more Hefty Price Tag and lower Sell-Back Values. It's only in it for our 💰 (It's not the Employees fault)

    Used games are not bad there pretty much just going to any local game store

  • Christopher K.

    Thumb nail was very deceiving your not any better than what you say gamestop is.

  • Zander Ewing

    I'm 30 seconds in and I already did sell my brand new Pokemon moon and I actually got 4 dollars back WTF

  • Anthony Riccobono

    Hey man, I love how you try to make us feel bad that the devs dont get a cut of used games and even pray for a time when it's all downloadable content and no physical copies. Very few people have the money to drop on a new 70 dollar game every month, and that's the way they are staggered every month a great game to maximize on sales, and depend on the trade in economy to play games. Furthermore there are 5 year old games on psn that are 59.99 to download and $10 dollars used at gamestop. You may want to pay full price for a 5 year old game , but I certainly dont. There are so many other things about you video, including the insanely deceiving thumbnail that was put there to trick people into thinking that you had found something on the bar code on the front of a game. Sorry that I take advantage of the return a game in 7 days if you sont like it, or buy 2used games get 2 free deals they have bc I would rather put food in front of my kids than pay full price for every game on psn. Elitist gamer piece o poop. That is all, I'm going to go back to playing my 16 dollar used copy of evil within 2 , and then trade it when I'm done.

    Kept bugging me about the warranty for the preowned game I got

  • Debby Williams

    I bought a ps3 for $180 only had for 3months and they only give $24 for it bull$h!t

  • SuperZX

    It’s been 23 years since I last set foot on a GameStop. The experience was unpleasant and Not conducted with honesty. The have something I really want that’s exclusively sold by them, and I’m seriously debating about going over to their store to purchase that particular product, simply because I want to avoid their bullshit.

  • Kiki Tillmon

    They are ending the Power Rewards Card too😒😒😒

  • dawson chester

    Gamestop has lied to my face nd I caught them, I asked for a PlayStation 4 pro (because I needed 1 fast) nd they said they just ran out so I leave the store, 10 minutes later when I pass the store I see somebody leaving with a ps4 pro so I stop them and ask how they got that since they were out nd they said they had a few "in the back" so I storm in nd ask for a ps4 nd they say yet again that they're out but I tell them I just spoke to someone who just bought 1 nd to try that answer again, after 15 minutes of arguing I tell them i could sue for being lied to, (nd you can) nd they gave in nd sold me 1 for 50% off, I can fairly say I won that fight

  • ruskiecru
