GS: "Hey, welcome to GameStop!"
Me: "I'd like to cancel a pre-order."
GS: "I'm sorry to hear that, any reason?"
Me: "I found it cheaper online."
GS: *laughs* "Okay, where?"
Me: "From the game's website. There's no collection tax charge for digital purchases in this state."
GS: "So you're saving like a total of like $5 at most?"
Me: "I could save a dollar and that would be a saving."
GS: "They don't offer the game protection that we have. If you lose your CDs we will replace them if you sign up for our plan."
Me: "You can download the game from their site if you lose them too for free."
GS: "If this is about the midnight release, just know that you'll be able to play once the game goes live if that's one of your concerns."
Me: "That's another part of it. I just rather not stand in line and then drive home if I don't have to."
GS: *slight chuckle* "Any other pre-orders I can help you out with? Mists of Panderia?"
Me: "No, don't play it.
GS: "COD Black Ops 2?"
GS: "Prototype 2?"
Me: "Man, I just want my receipt."
GS: *frustrated look* "Yeah, sure." *hands receipt* "Bye..."
What happened to just letting me cancel an order, no questions asked? This is part of the many reasons why I hate using GameStop. I use to like doing online pre-orders, but one time a game didn't ship till after launch day and I was upset. Plus, GameStop NEVER has deals for PC gamers like they do for console gamers. We already pay full price for !@#$, never offer discounts, etc. If the game I want that's coming out isn't on Steam, I will pre-order it from somewhere now other than GameStop.
