tz101 Posted July 24, 2010 Share Posted July 24, 2010 So there is this GW store that I frequent, and the one skinny clerk knows I scout for gaming items. Last week he informed me that he picked up a SNES and a few games from that store a couple days prior on "employee discount". I asked him why I had not seen these out for sale and he told me that they were only out for a short while before he nabbed them for his own. Fast forward to today, and the same GW clerk tells me that he scored a Saturn and six games yesterday for himself. Having Never seen a Saturn ever in the wild in my area, I was a little envious. I asked him how much he paid, and all he would say (with a sheepish grin of course) was that he got a good deal because he had a "coupon". Am I the only one who this strikes as wrong? It looks like all the good gaming donations never see the public sales shelves in the stores, but get taken by the employees. What do "employee discount" and "coupon" mean exactly? I have a feeling that some of this stuff leaves the stores without so much as a cent being paid by the employees. This is why it is never advisable to donate games and/or systems to GW. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
