The Infuriating Ways That Gamestop Rips Off Its Customers
GameStop holds fond memories for most of us. Who didn’t love going there more than almost anything else else? But is nostalgia hiding the truth in plain sight? Is GameStop an evil dictatorship that’s bought up all the competition and basically just steals money from children? Or does the 'Power Reward Card' redeem any of GameStop’s other sins? Here's a compilation of GameStop's reputation.
Company Encourages Lying About Games
If you were ever an Employee at GameStop, odds are you’ve been pushed to lie to costumers about having a new game in stock. While most businesses WANT to sell their newest and latest merchandise, GameStop wants costumers to stick to their used section. GameStop makes the most profit by sticking to a “circle of life” way of doing busies and keeps its money flowing through the selling and buying of used games. Several Game Stop employees admitted to doing this, so make sure you ask twice next time.
Fear Is The Main Emotion of Employees
It’s never a nice feeling to know you’re shopping at a place that inspires fear in the people who work there. But such is life behind GameStops friendly facade. There is always a host of young people eager to work at a store that holds so much meaning to them, so GameStop never feels very behooven to meet employee needs. Employees compare their jobs there as being like, “used cars salesmen” and saying they felt pressured to push games that customers didn’t want. Not cool GameStop.
GameStop Pockets Profit From Your Old Games
You know selling your games someplace else would make a lot more money than you would at GameStop. But GameStop is just so damn convenient, sometimes you can’t help yourself. Just know the Power Up Rewards card they’re always spouting off about doesn’t actually do much and you are so little of their profit it barely counts.
Power Reward Card Huge Lie
Wow GameStop, thanks for basically admitting you think we’re idiots. If you do the math it’s clear it would be VERY hard to save more than $5 using this method (because of the $15 membership.) GameStop employees also are notoriously bad about giving anyone any trade over $30, which means you’d probably save around $3. Cool deal!
