GameStop Pro Members Infuriated After Halo Infinite Controller Restock

GameStop restocked the Halo Infinite Elite Wireless Controller today and it ended up infuriating its Pro Members.

The restocks are becoming more and more frenetic lately.

Particularly, for limited edition hardware.

Recently, GameStop announced a Halo Infinite hardware restock limited to Pro Members.

So far, the customer experience for these restocks has been less than desirable.

Although it seems today the situation reached its peak.

I've been a pro member for years. Tried several times to get this controller but could never get through the process. Now, they're on ebay for double the price. I feel cheated.

So sick of this! I paid for a Pro membership, just saw today they changed me twice due to their website issues, and still can't pick up Halo hardware.

Good afternoon, Same here after 3 hours on chat with GameStop they admitted that it was an error on their website and refunded my pro membership but let me keep my account and points…. But this is not fair to gamers who actually want to play the system not rob people by listing it on eBay for almost 2000!!

This happened to me as well. 2 times in as many weeks I had the same issue. It would allow me to place it in my cart, but when I went to pay for the pre-order it gave me a 404 error code and then cancelled my pre-order and would not let me re-establish it. This happened for the Far Cry bundle, and the Halo bundle. This is completely unacceptable as I have suggested multiple ways to eliminate scalpers from absorbing the stock. I have also made suggestions as to how to eliminate BOT purchases. As others have stated the CS reps were very nice, and offered membership refund. I did not want a refund for the simple reason that there are other benefits to the membership. What I want as a long time customer, pro member, and investor is the company to follow suggestions and establish ways to prevent pre-order scalping, and prevent BOT orders. I even sent links to the 22 individual pre-sales that immediately went on sale on Ebay. These pre-sales should immediately be rescinded and the pro account suspended. This has yet to be incorporated into the rules for pro-membership. Gamestop, if you want to keep your customers happy, you should listen to, and implement the changes recommended.
