Tired of Banks? Consider GameStop Instead

Tired of his bank’s policies, a user on 4Chan has apparently opted for a less typical financial solution… GameStop. How in the heck does that work? Well apparently, whenever he gets a paycheck, he immediately goes to a GameStop store and pre-orders a bunch of games, aka making a deposit. Then, whenever he wants to “withdraw” money, he simply cancels a game or two.

It sounds absolutely insane of course, and given that it’s a 4Chan post, it’s obviously non-verifiable. However, a former GameStop employee on Twitter commented to Kotaku that a customer was very fond of doing something similar. Whether or not he was trying to game the financial system is up for debate.

 

 

Gamestop Bank

Does anyone else use Gamestop as a bank?

I got really pissed off with US Bank because I kept overdrafting my account even though I opted out, and the same thing happened with my credit union when I got a debit card.

Now whenever I get paid I go preorder a whole shitload of games. Whenever I need money, I go to the nearest gamestop and ask for my money back on a game I don’t want and make a withdrawal. The lines are shorter at gamestop than at the bank and I can trade in old games and have money go straight to my savings account. Gamestops are just as prevalent as banks in my town and I work at a mall so it’s even more convenient than running an errand to the bank or using an ATM and getting charged.

The gamestop people are starting to catch on that I’m just moving money around and only buying one preordered game a year, if that, but there isn’t shit they can do about it. The best part is, since I always preorder every game coming out I’m still guaranteed to get all the exclusive content whether or not I’m sure I want a certain game. It’s like they’re rewarding me for banking with them.
