I also got a pair of those svideo cables last week. Figured it couldn't hurt to have an extra pair. I just wish I hadn't passed on the $10 ps3 component cables a few weeks ago.

Yesterday, I picked up:
$3.74 GE 12ft component cable
$3.74 D-Link network card

I also passed on some guitars for $65. I don't need one, but I would be tempted if they go lower.

If I were your friend, I would tell you I don't understand how every great game is great. Maybe then you'd buy me a lot of clearanced great games. Is that wrong as a "hot deal"? :P

He has seen me play it and heard me rant about it many times, but he refuses to buy it, even at $10.

:xbox: NBA 07 13.98 (EA Sports)

Also, stumbled upon a Magnavox 37" HDTV for 633 or 663. How could I forget already?:wall: It was 15% off.

Picked up three Nyko Play and Charges. Two are available for trade. Also, none of the 360 clearance games are marked at this store and have a good shot at getting to 75% and I can get just about any PC game except the ever popular Darwinia for 75% off at several Targets here so if anyone wants in, please PM.

EDIT: Sorry, the last part will go to the trade thread.

I grabbed four Virtua Tennis for PS3 at a price of $4.96 each. They didn't have a usual clearance sticker, but rather some other large red sticker with its own bar code. It said "as is" on the sticker as well. It was the first time I'd seen one like that, but they were still sealed, so its all good. I'm pretty sure YMMV.

I've seen these more often recently. First it was damaged box stuff like a bike trailer and rollerblades. Then a BluRay 8 Under or whatever (the dog sledding movie) for like 1.97 and today one of the Bond Ultimate DVD sets for 35 down from 70. The electronics stuff looked ot be in perfect shape, so I dunno why. To be honest, some stuff that was marked like this I had never seen in any Target before such as the bike trailer. And they're always on clearance endcaps. Anyways, it definitely looks YMMV to me. And great find, by the way.

Target uses the as-is labels to sell both damaged merchandise and items they end up with that the store doesn't sell. They generally get the latter from mis-picks (and one or two other ways...) - something gets mis-packaged at the DC, so instead of a box of donuts they end up with Spanish-language DVDs. They need to use the as-is label because 1) the bar code won't scan as anything, 2) even if you stuck a normal bar code on it, there's nothing to sell it as that won't impact inventory, and 3) there's no where to put it.*

The thing is, sometimes bar codes on items the store is supposed to have still don't scan - the UPC that comes in isn't the one headquarters attached to the DCPI for the store. Some stores interpret that as a mis-pick and re-label the item. This happened to Rainbow-Six: Vegas for the PS3 when it came out. Other, smarter stores will print out their own bar code for the item, or better yet, tie the actual UPC to the Target DCPI (but not everyone knows how to do that).

*I think mis-picks are actually supposed to be sent back to the DC, but for various reasons, that often doesn't happen.

I went to a local Target (Lakewood CA) and found that they had Pokemon XD for the GameCube for 14.99. They had a rack set up and a shelf tag for that price. It might be at all Targets.

Thanks for adding this! I was really curious as to what might be "wrong" with some of those products, and your post makes a lot of sense

This should probably be in the Target clearance thread.

Except that Target clearance prices end in .98 .48 or .74. A $14.99 price point would mean it's the new price for this game instore.

I can confirm this too. The Target I went to had at least 5 copies correctly tagged on the shelf for $14.99, regular price, not a clearance.

Also of note, they completely redid the video game section. All the older system games under $20 were out in a new aisle set up in rows similar to greeting cards, and all the glass cases were almost empty. That new set-up looks like it would be way too easy to steal games, so I'm not sure why they'd even do that.

Not sure if it was mentioned already (only checked the last 6 or so pages), but picked up SF Alpha 3 Max (PSP) for 13.88.

Mega Man X (PSP) was also 13.88.

Can't remember anything else at the moment.

Picked up Stonghold: Legends for 5$ and a couple more casual games for 5$ a piece. A little OT but the guitar clearance is on in full force, I picked up a distortion pedal 10$, a training video 3$, a cords book 3$ all 75% off. They had a ton of electric guitars, so it's early xmas shopping for me.
