Frequently asked questions

Can I pick up my online orders at GameStop stores?

Oftentimes, you will be able to pick up your online order at a local GameStop, especially if you’re buying a new release. If you’re buying pre-owned products (especially items like retro games or accessories), your local store might not have them in stock. In that case, you’ll need to have those products shipped to you.

Can I pre-order games and consoles?

Yes. Pre-ordering ensures you’ll have access to new games or consoles as soon as they’re released and that your products won’t be sold out before you can buy them.

If my product is damaged, can I still trade it in?

If your product is damaged, you might still be able to trade it in. For example, GameStop does accept broken or dead electronics like tablets and smartphones. You might also be able to trade in games, consoles, and accessories in less-than-prime condition, but you might not receive full value for your trade in. If you’re unsure, it’s best to ask a representative at your local GameStop store.

Can I get a refund for my PowerUp Rewards Pro membership?

Yes; you can get a refund for your Pro membership if you return your card to a GameStop store within 7 days of purchase.
