GameznFlix

Has anyone received any of the new games from them in the mail? I've had Orange Box in my que since like 2 weeks before it's release, and I still haven't received it yet. I have AC and Kane & Lynch in my que as well now, but I'm not holding my breath.

I guy I work with uses their service. I've heard nothing but horror stories from him about never receiving games. It's too bad. I was very close to canceling Netflix and making the switch to them.

gameznflix is terrible. Games stay queued forever and when they finally ship it takes a week+
I used gamefly for about a year and for the most part was please with their service. I got new games shipped to me right away and if your PO is inside there fastship program, they will ship you your next game as soon as the PO scans the previous one in.

I've had Gameznflix since May or so with their 11.75 for 3 out coupon and don't have a thing to complain about. I've gotten crazy amounts of games and movies from them and hardly ever have to wait for more than a couple of days shipping. Granted, most, if not all of the games I've put in my queue have been older titles, but it's stuff I hadn't played, so it didn't bother me any.

If you want the latest and greatest, GameFly is probably the way to go. If you want to run through some older games or have a service that does both movies and games, I can't complain about GNF. I'm probably their only supporter.

If they had the game in stock I got the game fast. LIke you said, the problem is they never have the new games, which is the main reason I want the service, because there soo many good new games out, and I can't afford to buy them.

From what I gather it is a crapshoot. I've spoken to a couple different postal employees about it. It is only done at the main distribution center here because that is the only machine/scanner in the city. Even at that, it's still up to the postal employee to scan it.

Since I joined GF back in July I've had a total of 3 games get Fast Returned.

Gamefly is fast with shipping, but I live in Florida and everything tends to come from City of Industry in California . But I'm liking them thus far.

I'm spoiled by Netflix (Return on Tuesday, new title on Thursday).

CAG has a thread about people reporting about their local PO's - I did the trail and error method. I would mail games from different PO's in my area since I'm on the border of distrubition centers. When I used their service, every game I had was fast returned as long as I used a certain set of PO's. One of them is the one my office use so I would just drop the disc in outgoing at work.

With GamezNFlix, the games come from whatever center has the game, so it can be really quick or a few days. However, I see that recently they've changed to shipping back to your closest center. Before, every single item shipped back to their HQ in Kentucky. Now, for me, they ship to a city that's about 20 minutes from here, so they're always checked in the next day and another one shipped out that same night or next morning.

Actually I'm talking about Gamefly. I dumped Gameznflix yesterday and picked up gamefly . Once GZFX would ship I would have it within 2 days. Problem is they never ship!

Thanks. The games didn't come in Saturday, so I'm hoping they will be here today.

Just wanted to tell everybody not to rent your games or movies from GameZ'n'Flix! They have been reported to the Better Business Bureau for fraud. Just wanted to give a heads up to everyone who's thinking of signing up for their web site, donít they will over charge your credit card. 94 people have reported GameZnFlix to the Better Buisness Bureau in the last 3 months. Something is wrong, these 94 people can be all at fault!
