I recently ordered a game from the website and selected value shipping(which is $3).  When i looked at the order details it said to wait 2 days for processing and 5-10 days for delievery.  Ask you, why am i paying anything for shipping and handling if i'm waiting this long to get the game? 
 
Shouldn't Gamestop be a big enough retailer to offer free shipping?

Amazon or bust for me. Deepdiscount.com sometimes has awesome deals on month old games and also offers free shipping on certain things.

As much as the Gamestop near me is pretty cool. I have to admit that their pricing does suck ass. Maybe they come to realize that they will never compete with Amazon. So they'll milk whatever online customers for whatever they have.

if the gamestop website worked worth a damn, and they had free or cheap shipping, you would never go inside the store, and you would never sell back games, or preorder, or buy the strategy guide, or and Edge card and/or game informer. 
 
They dont want you to use their site.

I love Amazon's super saver shipping. Usually I'm not in a hurry to get stuff, so it's nice being able to get free shipping like that.

Interesting, i didn't really think of it that way. 
 
They had a 20% off deal and i thought i'd jump on it.  Damn, you Gamestop!  Why must you be so evil?!

Well when you go to their store, other than telling you to bring in your used games so they can rape you for pennies on the dollar, they also try to sell you warranties, discount cards, magazine supscriptions, and a used copy of the game you're trying to buy. Not sure why you expected them to try and save you money online. 
Like other people have said, Amazon is the way to buy games online. And from time to time they can have some pretty good sales.

they are gamestop, they want to get as much money from you as possible. they can give you free shipping but they don't feel like doing that. they want you to come to gamestop so they can sell you stuff that you don't need.

One of the reasons why I stopped buying from Gamestop, Amazon.com is where I go to from now on. Its really great to buy from them.

It does, use coupon code SAVER for free shipping and CAG16 for 16 percent off used games. However, for new games, Amazon is offering a year of Amazon prime (2nd day shipping and release day) for free for any college students with a valid .edu email address. Go to Cheapassgamer.com man, saved me hundreds, I can get brand new games on release day for 30 bucks sometimes.
