I wouldn't say "love" persay, but I do like their 7-day return thing.

Pros:

No shipping
7-day return policy
Proximity (it's close)
Female clerks (sometimes)
Decent pre-orders


Cons:

Taxes
Selection
Prices (on used things, mostly)
Trade-in values
Not enough hot female clerks

I hate their crappy trade-in values. I hate how they want to sell you a strategy book. I hate you.

I'll never forget that day some lady came in to trade a DS. The store offered her X amount of money for it (I think it was $25 or something, I can't recall but you'd probably know better than I). Then right after this lady left another one came in asking how much a used DS is.


$130.00 or somewhere around there.

To be honest, what I hate is how you end up getting shit when you trade-in your games, but that's all.

I like how when I get used games they always work, unlike EB Games.

I hate how you will be put on a, "no return list".

Well, you haft to factor in exactly how many copies of said game we'll have in used company wise; how much the system is sold used, weather there getting cash or credit, and other small factors. We can't have someone trade in a brand new game and get 50 bucks, and we sell it for 54. We only make a couple dollars in profit. Theres alot behind it, but then again it can be annoying. xD



@Neo: The no returns list is for people who try to scam the business. I've heard stories of it, and it can be quite brutal

ah, she may have traded in a lite, those are about 20-25 depending on cash or credit, and a hundred used; but the priced dropped, so now there 90 used I think

I've never been asked if I was playing the game.

I do always get asked if I want to get their stupid rewards cards and memberships and magazines every time I go. Shit, man, I don't want it!

I had one guy ramble on for 10 minutes about it.

They had this one girl there (sexy as hell) who knew me and never asked after the first time. She was the best clerk ever. Then she disappeared before I could get her number.


Later, as I was entering stalker phase, I found she had a boyfriend. I was so pissed. Good riddance.
