Thank you Target Clearance Thread, for helping me find cheap PC games at crazy discounts.

Oh yeah, and also helping me to resist Gothic 3 for 4.99, because it's a buggy mess (the blokes over at Penny-Arcade forums helped too).
Thank you CAG, for making grad school more enjoyable (and cheap).

OK, well, I was just wondering because in one of the threads in the DVD forum, some guy asked us to stop talking about details of some of the DVDs that were on sale, even though it might've helped some people decide whether or not they wanted to purchase the DVDs. And also, there is a separate forum on other deals. I don't think I'll ever get how this place works. :roll:

That's because he's an asshole and/or an idiot. We, however, are not. :D

Generally, the rules about what goes where have a lot of room for flexibility as long as you're remotely close. The guy who reposted one small DVD sale in the gaming forum, for instance, got complaints because "DVD Deals" is pretty self explanatory. Ditto for people who spam the site with trade lists when we've got an area set aside for that. Just don't do things like that - things that would be obvious if you took a minute to look at the board names when you signed up - and you'll be fine. :D

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

You forgot about the shmucks who :spam:CAG with those 'do 3 offers get a free prize' things when they're such a new member it can't help but be an ad for a site they probably personally own.

Hey, don't know if this is off topic, I hope it isn't...

I'm new to the Charlotte, NC area and I was wondering if there are any good targets around here? I went to the one near...Matthew (sP?) I think it was or something...can anyone recommend any good ones that maybe have better clearances than others? I'm willing to drive a bit if that makes any difference...

Springfield, IL
SW: Battlefront 2, PC, $4.98

This had sat there a while and although I got it on Xbox soon after release on the Kmart/Wal-Mart price match glitch $15 price, I figured with the mods available it would be worth it to grab it on PC.

This was the last one.

They had a lot of bargain PC titles for $2.98 too, and Dawn of War: Dark Crusade for $7.48

Went to target this morning hoping to find some X% off GBA stuff, but there wasn't anything yet. All of the GBA games have been moved to the endcap and are piled in there among a bunch of Xbox & PS2 games. Nothing is marked down... yet.

Yeah, I'm definitely waiting for the clearance to hit the GBA stuff at the local Target. There's plenty of games left, and even a few pink GBA SP2 units. I'll spring for one of those, if they hit 75% off. :D

Here is what I found last night.

Location: East Hanover, NJ
Item: The Fugitive (HD-DVD)
Clearance Price: $4.96

It had the long white and red clearance sticker on the back and rang up "High Definition" with that price. Other than that it was pretty slim pickins.

I went to 5 Targets around my area...nothing, absolutely nothing from the lists. Maybe I'm slow and other gamers beat me to the purchase or the stores here don't particpate...*sad face*

I'm in the San Jose, CA area. Did any CAGs from here get anything?

LOL @ the list, good luck finding much of any of that stuff at this point ....

Although it could be said with more eloquence, that post should be added to the end of the initial post. Target clearance is EXTREMELY YMMV!

Yeah, you're right. Most of the stuff that was added first to the list (the 8th I think?) should be disregarded except for some of the PC games, which seem to be easier to find even later on during the clearance.

Was at my Target today looking for any clearance stuff, they had absolutely nothing. BUT they did put tons of new games into the endcap (the one that has the clearance stuff and the stuff that will be put on clearance in the near future). Of worth there was a few DS titles and some Wii games, though one of the Wii games seemed to just be out of place.

Marble Madness (Wii); Ant Bully (Wii)
Castlevania Portrait of Ruin (DS); FF3

We probably should be on the look out for these this month. The back of those cards say they expire June 2007. The question is will Microsoft actually care...


I was looking at those the other day (the ones with the Vision camera). They are good till June 2008. It is the older set (of which I managed to get two several months ago when they were on sale) which was June 2007. That reminds me, I need to redeem one of those! Unless there are different versions of the Vision Camera pack - the ones at my Target, anyway, said June 2008.

When I stack that with the 3 month card I picked up a few weeks ago from Target ($7.48) I'll have over 2 years of Live paid for + 3 headsets + Bankshot Billiards + Joust + 600 MS points for less than $50.

The 3-month set that I picked up was unmarked and for some reason the UPC was all faded (it was where the sealing tape was and somehow that made it fade). It took them 30 minutes to figure out what to do with it. The store manager took it in the back to look it up. But of course, all she did was look it up on the Target web site, when I told them in advance it was probably out of the system. She found the 12 month kit and at first was going to give me 33% off that for the price (like $37 or something) :lol:. In the meantime I called my wife and had her look up the 3-month kit on ebay to get the UPC. Finally they enter that and, of course, it is "Item not found" but they look up the last price and FINALLY find the $7.48. I'm not sure it was worth all the trouble, but, anyway, I'm a CAG so I coulnd't resist. Fortunately I was there by myself (no kids) so I could bide my time.

I'm glad Target clearanced these June 2007 expiring kits out, though. Another place that had tons of both types (12 and 3 month) near me is the NW chain Fred Meyer. They had a bunch at full MSRP a month ago or so. Yesterday I went in and they were all gone - obviously removed, as I keep close tabs on their clearances. I wonder if these stores can get credit from MS for the expiring kits? Someone out there ought to know about that!

PS - A pet peeve if mine on CAG is when new threads pop up for perfectly servicable old threads. I just thought nothing was going on at Target because the Target clearance thread fell off my page of subscribed threads. Then I find this new one today. I know this is probably impossible, but it would be nice if there was a feature to carry subscriptions over to thread "sequels". Fortunately it doesn't look like I missed any wonderful set of clearance items as a result (that has happened before).

Interesting. Any Target employees here that can enlighten us? I guess it wouldn't be a surprise if Microsoft said to destroy the old cards or recall them, and then send off new ones. Sounds like a silly move to have an expiration date in the first place, but I digress.

Waiting for word on a GBA clearance... Definitely holding out for that.

Yeah, it seems wierd. But maybe it is to prevent a warehouse of unsold kits from being bought up cheap 2 years from now, thus flooding the market with cheap 12-month cards? That presumes that newer kits have "cooler" stuff (like the Vision cam) making older ones less desireable at full MSRP. It seems if they hadn't put expiration dates on the original kits they could still sell them for $50-$60, if nothing else (sicne the $20 game coupons expired long ago). But there are definitely stores out there that will be stuck with these things unless MS has a robust recall/exchange program, or they clearanced them out in advance like Target and Kmart.

Anyways, I just applied the second 12-month card to my account and now I'm good through 5/1/2009 :lol:. I have the 3-month card to add still too... (So these are nice compared to the standalone cards that are sometimes only good for new accounts).

Went to the local stores today (SD area), did not find any of the items above.
Was hoping to at least get the lego kits for me..Err...I mean for my kids.

GBA items not on sale either...guess I have to wait.

NJ. Overnight stocker - bottom rung.

Quit my day job awhile ago ... need something part time with steady pay to supplement, and overnight pays better than any other retail.

Plus target has bonuses (10% discount) and the benefit of being the first one there when clearance prices drop.
