Nice article. I refuse to shop at Gamestop myself. I wish I had a fry's in my area though. I remember the fry's you gave us a tour of in Arizona and I am still kicking myself for not picking up a couple of games I saw there.
I used to go to stores to buy games. Nowadays I mostly purchase online at Amazon. The deals on Amazon are great and I only go for the free shipping option. I may venture out for some holiday deals this year, but that's about it for me.

You just need to use the outlook of making Gamestop pay for their actions. I've saved hundreds in game rentals using Gamestop

I've gone a long way towards catching up on my DS collection by comparing notes with Shane and following many of the suggestions he outlines in this article. I walked away from Frys with about a dozen games for under $50 once, and realized what a sucker I'd been for paying retail for games that sit on the shelf for weeks sometimes before I get around to playing them.
I tend to take advantage of the Buy 1 Get 1/Buy 2 Get 1 deals for building up my collection as well. As an example, this week at Toys R Us they have a Buy 1 get 1 @ 50% off deal on DS games. I managed to pick up Soul Bubbles (which is getting harder and harder to find these days) for $5 marked down from an already low clearance price of $9.99.
I try and avoid GameStop as much as anyone, but they do serve their purpose. They are still a good resource for cheap GBA games and the Buy 2 Get 1 Used deal can be worthwhile on older titles that are already cheap--as long as your local GameStop"s DS section isn't a disaster like some I've seen where 80% of the games don't have original cases or manuals.
