GameStop Complaint - Pre-Sell Nightmare
I wrote a review titled "Pre-Sell Warning". Unfortunately this is NOT the first time I've had trouble with Game Stop pre-sells.
THIS time, the associate told us he had just found out his store was having a midnight launch for the new ghostbusters game and there would be free, first-come, first serve items received when you reserved the game (I should have known better due to my previous experience).
So we decided to buy the pre-sell and just come at midnight to get the free item and the game. We wouldn't have reserved a copy otherwise because we work during their normal store hours. So we put $25 dollars down for the reservation.
What happened? We sat outside past midnight and no one showed.
Then, we drove twenty minutes away to ANOTHER game stop and sure enough they were open, BUT THEY WOULDN'T ACCEPT OUR PRE-SELL FROM THE OTHER GAME STOP.
They told us all they could do was sell us the game but we wouldn't get the free item and we would have to wait until tomorrow get our $25 back from the other...
We just left.
I'm exhausted from staying up late for this "launch".
I'm out the gas money driving back and forth because I was mislead.
UPDATE: We went back today after work. In addition to being told that there was nothing they could do and that they were "sorry", we couldn't even get the free t-shirt from the game because, "The EMPLOYEES took them all."
