Like 2 or 3 weeks ago, they were running a trade-in promotion where they give you $150 for your old PS3. I had been thinking about upgrading to a new slim with a larger harddrive for some time, so this seemed like the right opportunity.
Well anyways, once there and at the end of the transaction, they inform me I need the $15 Powerup Rewards 1 year membership to take advantage of the deal. This didn't sound right to me, but I figured I had just missed some fine print on the offer details or something and agreed after asking if they were certain about this and they told me "yes". Long story short, after checking out their website and such I'm about 95% certain they conned me into getting the membership, when all I really needed was the FREE version of Powerup rewards.
As it's only $15, it's not exactly the end of the world, but I would like to reclaim it anyways out of principle alone. How should I go about doing this? Should I storm into one of their stores (that have a disturbing fat person smell might i add) and demand a refund, or use the "contact us" customer service route?
@Joeyoe31: No one I know shops at Gamestop (Best Buy gives way better prices on trade ins), and neither do I except to take advantage of this one promotion. This ordeal has just reaffirmed the reasons I don't go there. It is a horrible, horrible place. That's beside the point anyways, the point of my post is that they conned me into getting the 1-year membership.
