Noticed these two recently popped up under The Source's clearance section. As usual, I'd suggest calling to check stock before making any trips.

More than likely. I'd wager Left 4 Dead 2 will be as well. Shame there isn't a single copy of Borderlands in stock here in Calgary. Guess I'll just wait for a sale on the upcoming GOTY edition.

Great prices, but not really feeling it. As of this moment, Edmonton area only has 1 left (at St Albert) according to online stock check.

Related story. Last month KingdomHearts DS was $10 I knew I was going to the mall called The Source to see if they could hold it for me the very helpful clerk said yes. I drive over and the sales lady told me how lucky I was that I called because she had 3 other people call about it and she said 2 of them were pushy enough to tell her not to hold it for me but sell it to them instead. I was shocked and thanked her for her loyalty of service.

For a game that hasn't even hit $20 at retail (not sure I've even seen it for $30) the $10 price tag makes me think they had pretty limited stock. No surprise then that there are none near me.

Too bad though, great game. Would have been easy to recommend anyone pick it up at $10 (even $20).

I havent asked to put on hold before for that very reason:
1. I figured they might not respect the deal and sell it to someone else
2. It's kind of selfish for people who may go to the store before me (even though they probably don't deserver the chance :P)

1-I've never heard of this happening before.
2-I don't see it as being selfish, it's a good use of time management. I live rural area if I'm driving into town for 30 minutes I don't want to waste my time/gas and the item not be in-stock.

1- It happened to me before (at EbGames)
2- It's not a store policy, they're not even supposed to do that. I understand your situation and I don't blame you, but nonetheless to me you're still skipping someone's else hard earned place.

Showed up at my local Source pretty early this morning (had an optometrist appt nearby) and apparently someone had scooped up all the copies of LFD2 that morning, oh well

It's cheap to ship to/from Canada. Please take a look at Magiic's Magiical Shipping Guide.

Unfortunately the closest WM to me isn't worth the trip. Thanks for the info though :)

Might try FS or BB instead

I might try this out, I guess I'd print out the web page? I remember that they didn't want to PM in the past by calling in the store to verify the deal.

1-You've had some else call on the phone and tell the sales clerk not to hold the item but sell to them instead? These people were not in the store they called on the phone also.
2-No, I don't agree. The person on a phone calling the store is just as much a customer as someone in the store.

2: Absolutely the person on the phone has equal rights. I can agree with policies of "we'll hold it for one hour" for a hot item, but certainly not "in-store first come first serve". Some of us are simply too busy, or too far, for that to be a viable option.

Great, and now people who actually wanted to buy L4D2 for cheap to play and not hoard to abuse trade-ins got screwed. :-?

I will cop to being a greedy a-hole. There was still at least 3 in Red Deer @ Bower mall when I was there earlier this afternoon.

AND Karma is a b**** after all. No duplicates apparently.:bouncy:

If you'd participated/read a bit more on the forum, you'd have known that. It's been EB's policy for a while. Not that there isn't ways around that, but you're in the wrong website for that sort of discussion.
Generally we don't condone flipping/hoarding here, RFD may be more your style then. Good luck there, the competition is pretty fierce and they usually don't share deals until they've cleared out their local stock. But you'll fit in great if you don't have a job and can afford to drive around all day flipping/hoarding.

If you decide to stay and participate in a bit more helpful manner, then welcome to the forums.

I'm glad I could facilitate your greed :roll: I guess I should think twice about openly posting such deals if we have the likes you of on the forum.

In my defense if you look at my post history I've at least attempted to post deals to save people some cash, and this is only deal I've attempted to capitalize on like this.

Had no idea that it was so frowned upon. I realize now why people comment in such a negative tone when a deal that originated here appears on RFD. I'll definitely keep this in mind for the future.
