This is the Kmart AD for the black friday sale. As you can see they messed up and put Star Wars Battlefront 2 for $12.99 instead of 1.

So your local Kmart may or may not honor this. If not get the AD and match price it at Wal-mart or Circuit City. I did the same thing with Ace COmbat last year for $5 and it worked as did for many other people.

So there you have it Battlefront 2 for $13.

All K-Mart's have already been notified well in advance of this error... if you get a K-Mart who lets it slide, congrats, but the retraction notice has already been sent out (or is being sent out, I forget which one). It might just be my district, so some other CAG's may get lucky.

I plan on taking it to Circuit City, personally, that extra 10% difference drops the game to around 8 bucks.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

nope, it is 10% of the difference, so
12.99 - .1 (49.99 - 12.99)

Usually some retailers don't honor certain adds because the prices are limited to certain hours. I would talk with the manager because I'm pretty sure this is a normal "sale" ad and I'm pretty sure that CC has some BS about beating their competitors somewhere in their store. Good luck to all. I'm going to try CC first and then I'm going to the guarantee, Wally World. Thanks OP for tha ad link, I know people will bust your balls because this was already mentioned, but I don't check that forum everyday; first time I saw the ad "link" was here, thanks again.

Just being a stickler about it, but wouldn't that mean that it would be $12.99 - $3.70? Just curious, as that would be 10% of the difference. So you'd be looking at just over $9 after tax for this game.

Most likely, but probably not out for the general public. It should be in today's newspaper, which I will be going to get here in a few minutes.

Might I be nosy and ask why so many copies? Also, the Sears ad was for Xbox, right? Or were both screw up the ps2 versions?

I hear CC won't be doing PMs Friday until 1 pm (heard this on FW or some other site) due to all the early bird sales, so make sure you PM after 1 pm.

It was just the Xbox and I got so many copies for friends/christmas presents and two for ebay to try and recoup costs.

Wal-Mart is price matching others black friday specials (as mentioned above) and I doubt htey would call Kmart to check in such busy hours. So I would hit up Wal-Mart with the AD and they should honor it.

I didnt see an ad in todays paper and i bought the local paper and the tribune and no kmart. Also walmart was passing out a flier of the week stating the WILL price match all ads as long as you have the original ads. This includes early bird specials.

I'm starting to think this isn't an error. K-Mart has the PS2 version on sale, NFM has the PS2 version on sale.. where's the XBox love!?

Seriously, if one of you guys gets Battlefront 2 on XB for like $10, shoot me a PM
