Wow it is promising that they are still having decent promotions like this.

I'd be interested in buying ME2 for PS3 for the $10 coupon if I knew what was planned for ME3

Bah...nothing for Soul Calibur V or FFXIII-2. Guess the coupons are really dead for now at least. Need to find something to use the $15 coupon from SWTOR on.

Probably see about picking up Splatterhouse. Would price match it, but I don't think I've seen it at my store.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

The way K-Mart is crashing and burning I suggest that anyone with K-Mart coupons use them and everyone else stay away.

Exactly that's why I have NO interest in their sales. Every time I walk into a Kmart I walk out because there are usually 2 cashiers with 9-11 people waiting in each line. When the Kmart rep showed up on CAG I did some of those deals but having to deal with Kmart again to cash in on those coupons is not worth it for me. Besides every time I walk into one of their shoddy stores I leave real depressed like I took a time warp back into the 1970's. :lol:

Agreed.

It was mentioned on Facebook there will be no non-ad deals until "vendor funding refreshes," so nobody should expect K-Mart to suddenly announce deals on these three games either. What you see here is all you get.

They also posted this on Facebook in response to people talking about how the coupons disappeared:

Hey Everyone. From what I have seen, they aren't going away. They're just going to be used differently.


He stated this is from seeing the next few weeks of ads, so it seems like instead of giving out straight up gaming coupons, it'll be stuff like we're seeing here with Mass Effect.

Well the sales are made well in advance so no way of knowing since when this sale was planned.

I'll probably burn the last of my SYWR points on Splatterhouse and be done with them until they can draw me back in with deals in the future.
I was wanting to go in and see if they still had the 50% clearance on clothes though, because I just grabbed a couple nice shirts and was going to use points towards some more.

Either way, I'm burning my credit.

Guess I'll use my coupon on MS points even though I already have a ton built up. Hoping NewEgg and Amazon come through with deals on new releases until Kmart gets back in the game.

I'm waiting to see the fallout from Kmart dropping out of the game. While they weren't usually beat, they forced the rest of the industry to at least pretend to be competitive. Best Buy was a notable competitor that really stepped up their game this last year.

Best Buy stepped up on Black Friday and their DOTDs but they had almost nothing for games during release week. Really gonna miss knowing that Kmart will come up with something for nearly every new release.

Quite a shame the "coupon train" has ended. The only thing I can be happy about is the impact on my wallet, and I say that because I probably spent more money in that 1 year of coupon/new release deals than I have in the previous 3 years of gaming combined.

I can only hope Josh will get the support he needs to get it up and running again, because it was easily the sweetest deal in town. As it stands now however, I've got no reason to even go into Kmart anymore with a Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Gamestop and virtually every other competitor closer and typically similar if not better on all other goods... the games definitely got me to spend far more money in Kmart than I've ever done in the past, as well as recommend them to friends.

If it truly is to be the end, and if Josh happens to see this, thanks for what you did while you did it, it was one helluva ride, and I'll be gaming for practically another year on the games from the coupon train alone. The game sales industry definitely lost a hidden gem.

I ran the DOTD thread, and it was an awesome ride. I added roughly 10-11 games to my backlog along with that extra Wii controller. I'm going to miss it, but my wallet won't. Lol, I'm going to keep riding the free train for a while. I'm trying to save up for a car at the moment.

Really appreciate it, probably only lasted as long as it did because of all of your support. Hopefully it comes back because of it.

We'll still have the circular, I just don't think decent overcomes or lackluster consumer experience. Had to heat up the deals to compel the community to even make the trip :)

Once they ended the $10 pre-order credits they put all their eggs in the 5 for $100 deal :roll:. Best deal going if it weren't for all the system/pre-order issues. Very curious to see what 2012's deals will be like going forward across the board.
