I hate game stop. My brother is the manager at one here, and even he hates them. You buy a $60 game, take it back same day cause it sucks, unlike what the guy behind the counter said. "Best game ever" etc. and they're like we'll give you $9 in gamestop credit for it.
Excuse me? I wan't to get a REFUND not sell this game. RE FUND!

    If you buy it and play it... The game is used and therefore not new anymore so cannot be refunded or resold as new. This is a business not a game rental company. I used to work there and although the company fails to treat employees right, the ignorance of customers is worse. No company will allow you to buy a NEW game and play it and then return it. GameStop will at least buy it back for a decent price... usually $40-$45 for a $60 game within the first week. Anywhere else you go the return policy clearly states that a new game may only be returned within the return period of unopened. Either but it pre owned if you want a full refund or... if you think the game will stink... Wait for a damn review and stop being ignorant

    this is a case of did you play it or not. if you didnt play it and just opened it they 50% of the time give you the full price as a swap [i.e. they will swap it for a game of the same price.] or will refund you 1/2 or 1/4th the original price. from what i can tell you were charged 85% from original price. which means they found issues with the disc that reduces the value. this means you had 35% that were restock and repair costs. this adds up to less money for you.

    Agree with Thud and Brenda. This is why I love their pre-owned games. I have the confidence of buying a game and being able to return it if it doesn't meet my expectations. Plus, I also love their $30 guaranteed trade deal. I play and beat the game in less than 30 days and when I trade it, I get a guaranteed $30. If you're getting only $9 bux for a game it probably means the game was older. I would strongly suggest you learn the concept of Supply and Demand. If I spend $2, 000 on a new computer and take it to trade it in 6 months later, I'm only going to get a fraction of what I paid for it. Same with video games. if your expecting to get a high trade value on a copy of Black Ops 1 the day before Black Ops 2 comes out, you're going to get pennies on the dollar. IMHO.
