You No Longer Need To Use Gamestop Store Credit At Gamestop

Starting on June 7th, GameStop will allow customers to use their trade credit towards purchasing Amazon Cash.

This was done by GameStop in order to increase in-store trade traffic to assist in meeting inventory and trade-in goals. They assume that just by getting people in the store they’ll be more likely to purchase something. They also hope that this new partnership will help see a rise in their digital sales as well.  The news was released earlier today via a GameStop team leader email leak on Neogaf. Amazon will be supporting Gamestop’s switch to make Amazon Cash purchasable by advertising the change on their site for the next few weeks. You can see the full text from the email right here:

Starting in June, Amazon shoppers will be able to apply their Gamestop trade credit and cash towards their Amazon account! This exciting addition to our trade program is intended to drive incremental trades into stores, helping your team meet trade and inventory goals.

On 6/7, The Gamestop logo will appear on Amazon’s website to promote this program. Interested shoppers will request a barcode on amazon.com/cash that can be used in Gamestop stores like an Amazon POSA card.

The added store traffic driven by this program is sure to increase digital sales and the potential for guests to purchase other products in your store. How will your team make the most out of this fantastic new partnership?

 

This change actually makes a ton of sense for GameStop as a company. For those who don’t know, the company makes the majority of their profit on pre-owned purchases. When you buy a pre-owned game or console Gamestop makes 100% of the sale, whereas if you purchase a new game they only receive a certain percentage of the sale. Which means that this change will hopefully help them obtain more profits. It will also assist the customer by making normal trades the most valuable they can be.

This will take some stress off of the regular Gamestop employee as well. The company was pushed into scrutiny earlier this year for having staunch and difficult quotas for their employees to meet. The punishment for not meeting the quotas was an almost immediate firing. When the story became public, most people believed their policies to be unjust and pushed for a change.

This addition of Amazon cash might be just what they need to make sure everything stays fine and dandy for the coming months.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
