If you were browsing the internet yesterday you may have heard speculation that UK video game retailer GAME were once again in financial difficulty. The speculation arose when people complained that they were unable to get the money for the items they traded in on a gift card. Well, it appears as though the reason why the GAME gift cards were so difficult to get hold off was because one branch manager accidentally ordered all the gift cards. This has led to all kinds of problems for the stores as they are having trouble rerouting them to other stores.
“I tried to trade some stuff in last week and was told that I couldn’t put it on a gift card because there were none. I asked why (instead of assuming they were going out if business) and was told that a manager somewhere had accidentally ordered ALL THE GIFT CARDS and they were having trouble rerouting them to other stores.”
