Walked in this morning to pick my standard copy of Second Son when the rep.....EDGAR.....kept asking me "are you suuuuuure you don't wanna hold out a week and get it used? After all, you ARE a Power Up member." He must have asked me at least four times until I turned around and walked over to the Best Buy across the road. Are they receiving commission??!!!
That sales rep is an idiot, he has a customer in his store and he's asking him to leave and come back (taking the chance the guy will go to another store entirely)....some of these stores hire fanboys and morons. Next time I went in I would ask that kid Edgar some questions and figure out why he was keen on that really stupid idea. Clearly he doesn't understand retail. You don't sent customers out the door. Perhaps he doesn't value his job.
The obvious thing is used sales, but that isn't what he was doing. They aren't trained to send customers out the door until next week, this was an initiative started for some other reason.
I have to agree with this. No matter if Gamestop primary profits come from used games, there is no way you are gonna send someone away and tell them to come back next week. The employee was probably a xbone fangirl and felt like he could make a dent in the games retail sales or something
