Does anyone else use Gamestop as a bank?
I got really pissed off with US Bank because I kept overreacting my account even though I opted out,
and the same thing happened with my credit union when I got a debit card.
blow whenever I get paid I go preorder a whole ******** of games. Whenever I need money, I go to the
nearest gamestop and ask for my money back on a game I don' t want and make a withdrawal. The
lines are shorter at gamestop than at the bank and I can trade in old games and have money go
straight to my savings account. Gamestops are just as prevalent as banks in my town and I work at a
mall so it' s even more convenient than running an errand to the bank or using an ATM and getting
charged.
The gamestop people are starting to catch on that I' m just moving money around and only buying one
preordered game a year, if that, but there isn' t **** they can do about it. The best part is, since I always preorder every game coming out I' m still
guaranteed to get all the exclusive content whether or not I' m sure I want a certain game. It' s like they' re rewarding me for banking with them.

Could you imagine pre-ordering a few thousand copies of some 			******		 unanticipated game and transferring the pre-orders to another game the day before it comes out, and not giving them time to cancel the copies?

I'm pretty sure there's a quantity limit on preorders, and a time limit on cancellations.

A few years back at the Gamestop I work at there was an incident with some indie developers in Austin. They knew there game was going to tank so they wen't to about ten or so Gamestops in my district and pre-ordered about a dozen of their game each. A week before the game came out and GS had purchased every copy pre-ordered and about more from them, the Developers pulled each pre-order and left each store screwed. Even though none of the locations sold over 10, the developers walked away with a fat wad of money in there pockets.

They didn't even buy us flowers before ******* us.

that was really incoherent.

Don't go through with the purchase, never pick up the game, transfer to a new game, and then remove. I know that's possible because I've done it.   
   
As for the quantity limit, mfw

"Money laundering is the process whereby the proceeds of crime are transformed into ostensibly legitimate money or other assets"

Unless his job counts as a crime, this doesn't even remotely resemble money laundering. It really is more or less like a bank.

Only thing close to this I've done is buy a game, finish it in a couple of days, then return it to the shop saying it didnt work. Free games.
#7 - archael (03/18/2014) [-]
Last I knew returning any games, new or used, got you store credit and not actual money?

Need confirmation as I haven't used GameStop in years. You'd be surprised how much you might still go and play an old game years after you initially planned to sell it...
User avatar #8 to #7 - godofal ONLINE (03/18/2014) [-]
he's not returning games, he's cancelling pre-orders
never been to gamestop myself, but i'd wager you get your money back for a pre-order
User avatar #11 to #8 - hates (03/18/2014) [-]
He does say "I can trade in old games and have money go straight to my savings account"
User avatar #13 to #11 - fpsnoob (03/18/2014) [-]
When he says "savings account" I'm pretty sure he's referring to in-store credit.
User avatar #12 to #11 - godofal ONLINE (03/18/2014) [-]
maybe he trades in old games for store credit, pre-orders with that and then cancels later getting money from it?
dunno if its possible though
#10 to #8 - archael (03/18/2014) [-]
Ah, I guess I assumed he was just returning them after they released. You'd have to make sure you remember to cancel games BEFORE they came out, but I guess it'd work.

Get in-store credit.
Use in-store credit to pre-order game.
Cancel pre-order, accept currency.

Game over, user wins.

It honestly is a good short term investment. Keep in mind the Gamestop membership fee and the resale values that are perhaps a tenth of what the game is actually worth. I'd rather put my money into like a bike rental place. They always take deposits and you can rent out those bikes to other people, making money off your rental and having more money in deposit at the actual bike owner's shop.
User avatar #45 to #17 - myjeren (03/19/2014) [-]
Gamestop pays half of the game if it's newer. If it's old they'll only pay you a smaller fraction.

Is this money laundering?

User avatar #18 to #16 - Mortuus (03/19/2014) [-]
Pretty much.
User avatar #32 to #16 - Shiny (03/19/2014) [-]
It's only laundering if the money is the proceeds of criminal activity.

So, maybe.

what I get from this post is, nobody knows what money laundering really is or how it is done.
#58 to #56 - alucardthemagician (03/19/2014) [-]
buying things with dirty money and selling the items for clean money?
its a pretty simple concept.
#76 to #58 - lozarus ONLINE (03/19/2014) [-]
Not really. Buying things with dirty money is the easiest way to get caught, since any decent agency would just say "Where did you get the money to buy this?"

Money laundering is mostly done through restaurants and hotels. All you do is make it overpriced as **** and then report it as always full. Its the most common tactic.
User avatar #78 to #76 - alucardthemagician (03/20/2014) [-]
no you dont buy large items.
Im saying you do it through small transactions.
not like candy bars though.
Something of mediate value that wont call attention if you sell it.
