How long does GameFly take to ship games?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I got a 14 day free trial offer, and then $7.95 for the first month after the trial from a GameFly advertisement and I was wondering how long they take to ship games. A month and 2 weeks for $8 is a good deal and I want to test out like $5 before spending my cash on them.

Anyway, are they like Netflix that delivers the day after you order the item?

Not where I lived. It took like a week sometimes for them to ship. I ended up canceling my membership because every single game I want was considered low availability. Based on my experience expect 3-4 days after mailing back to receive your game.

I am currently using gamefly. My closest shipping center is in Texas and I live in Iowa and it takes 3-4 bussiness days each way. On average about a week to get a game.

Since there is a shipping center in Califoria I would assume it should be 2-3 shipping days each way for you.

And I have to agree game avalibility for new games is crap.

I am still waiting for the new Batman game on the PS3 about a month and a half after release because it is in low stock.

Hmm... So if I want to rent MW3 I shouldn't even bother trying GameFly?

You would be waiting 2-3 months to even get the game.

Gamefly is really only worth using for older games and even then it can be kind of iffy. For example I have Super Smash Bros. Brawl in my Que and its availibility is medium.

And that game is approaching 4 years old.

Just checked the availibility on MW3.

Xbox is low.
PS3 is medium.

If you're using a PS3 you may be able to get it. That is if you leave that and only that game in your que for 2-3 days it will ship out because if you have any other games in their they will ship them out most likely if they are available.

Also I should note that I did recieve the wrong game once as well and while they shipped out a new game for me right away they did nothing to fix they 5-6 days lost in shipping becaause of their mistake.
