Gamestop story

8 replies 256 views Edited Jun 21, 2013

So, my local gamestop had a survival edition of TLOU unclaimed, and after a week, they called me since I had 'dibs' on it if unclaimed

 

I was told to come pick it up, as they would hold it for me, since a week has passed. I called them back and said will be in after work today

 

I got another call two hours later saying they have since sold it to the original preordered person. I called them back and ask 'is a hold not really a hold'

 

If I am told they are holding it for me, it should be legit. Very frustrating

Well it depends if the person got their money back or not. If it's within the 48 hour period, and they have money on it, it's still theirs. They told you wrong.

I think the guy who has the pre-order on it has more priority than the guy with dibs on it.

I agree, but seriously, when they call and say, 'its now yours' most people take that as actually true.....

They can't do "holds" over the phone. The only time they can ever put anything back for someone is a reserve for 48 hours or if you actually go online and setup a hold with their Pickup @ Store option which is good for 48 hours. Anything else is not a real hold and falls way to the first come first serve motto.
