DO NOT CALL! THIS WILL CORRECT THE PRICE EVEN FASTER!:roll::roll::roll:

This is a misconception. Calling a local Target will not speed up a price correction. At least, not any more than buying the game would. Call and save gas money and the ozone layer - the deal will end when it ends because of a flood of interested people, not because you distracted Minimum-Wage Joe from rubbing his fingers on the digital cameras in the glass case for a few minutes.

The ASIN is B000RF7164. Since this does not appear to be in any store's inventory, this probably won't be of any use, but you can try this link by replacing the x's with your zip code.

I don't think it's on clearance at all.
Yesterday, 3 Targets (different formats) had this game on an endcap within a cardboard shelf unit and 4-5 other games, shelf tags showed all for $29.99
But, Ghost Squad's UPC is not in the Target POS system just yet.
Hence, not on file and the various prices that have been reported.
I think by Monday's download, this will be fixed - now that all the boards, including ours with this EXTRA thread have posted (see the Target thread) - sigh...so get there now...before the price is entered!

Popcap Games still hasn't been fixed after about a month. Some Targets here have put a UPC sticker over the original odd looking UPC for it to ring up properly, but most haven't. Otherwise it will NOT ring up with ANY scanner period and I had a smart cashier who typed in the number to get the item. Ghost Squad appears to have the same problem although I haven't looked to see if the UPC looks odd like Popcap. I've also seen Splinter Cell DA and Tony Hawk Project 8 both for the 360 with UPC stickers that look like the $20 Virtua Temmis 3 and Monster Madness, but they rang up out of system.

A lot of times when I've had a game ring up out of system the cashier will look for a price on the item like a clearance sticker, they may use a hand scanner (which in this case won't work either) and if I have a second clearance game for the same system they off to sell if for the price of the other game. I've thought about buying a clearance game at 75% at 7.48 (like Eragon or NCAA 07) and Popcap and then return Eragon later, but I don't know if Popcap is worth it since I already have one of the 4 games from live unplugged I got for 4 at Sears. Maybe if I could match it with a $5 Blitz. There are Wii games at 75% off if they've hung around so someone could try it with Ghost Squad.

Florence, KY no Ghost Squad. :cry:

Assload of NBA NHL 2K7, couple NBA Street PS3 all PS3. 2 Shivering Isles PC $5.48? and couple other crappy things.

Also tried scanning the UPC I posted earlier and it showed as not in the Target system. I got the UPC from Ebays automatic listing thing at the top of game auctions so I can only assume it's right.

Did it ring up out of the system and that's the price the manager decided to charge for it?


Once they take the item out of the computer it becomes a crapshoot. I had luck at my Target about a year ago with this. I grabbed a couple of DS games that rang up OOS. I got lucky and the pharmacist (I was there picking up a prescription for my wife) let me name the price. He asked me if I saw how much it was. I told him it came from the clearance endcap and others over there were $5. He said ok, punched in $5, and I was done.

He said it rung up like that.

Just got back from the Milford Expressway Target with a copy of Ghost Squad for $12.46.

Took it up front to a cashier and when it didn't register in her system she took it over to the Customer Service desk and came back with the $12.46 price. Definitely going to be a huge YMMV on this one.

There was a NBA Street Homecourt (360) that scanned at $14.98 at that location too. I left that one there.

Mine never got Ghost Squad in, so i'll save myself the mileage.

Why the sudden focus on this, though? It's been like this for a week or so now.

Well, mine just got Ghost Squad in very recently, so I'm guessing that's the case with a lot of Targets and why this is of sudden interest.

Plus, after playing the copy I got my brother-in-law for Christmas this quickly climbed my list of buy when I see it for under $20 games.

Because it was posted on some other website and got it's own thread for a while. It's just like some of the deals from KMart/Sears/CC/etc that get their own thread for a while. Not everyone checks the clearance threads constantly.

The 1600 XBL cards that are clearanced are the blister-packed versions. Most (if not all) Targets are switching to the giftcard style (similar to the XBL game cards) because they don't hold any value until they're scanned at the POS.

If you find the blister-packs, it's worth checking the price.


oh, ok, cool thanks. my target (mission valley, san diego, ca) is the #13 highest volume store in the nation. it's only less than the supertargets. which is both good and bad. supply runs out quick. guess i won't be finding them at mine...

Found a couple of Ghost Squads at the gaithersburg target.... They show "Item not found" or whatever when I take them to the scanner, and the price on the shelf says 29.99 (no clearance sticker on the game) .... I'm guessing they would charge me 29.99 if I were to try and buy it, but I didn't try.

Just got back from Sunnyvale, CA Target. Item didnt scan so I went to the front registers. Stood in the Express lane with about 5 people in front. Took about 10 minutes. WTF???
Scan didnt take so she called Electronics. They told her $39.99. I was like "WTF?". Guy on the phone then changed to $29.99. Said no thanks and left.
There was absolutely no games on clearance there.

My pleading offer still stands on the Wii Ghost squad - anyone who feels generous and is getting it for $7/$12 I would happily pay $15 plus shipping. I've checked three Targets here and the only clearance games are Shadowrun for PC and a ton of Godfather.

On Topic: Godfather for what system and at what price?
Off Topic: I MAY be able to get a Ghost Squad, especially to trade for Godfather on 360.

I got a couple of Ghost squads for $12.48 each. They came up as not in the system, but other games on the endcap display (which had a giant $29.99 sign over it) rang up as $12.48, so they gave the Ghost Squads to me for that price. I also got a copy of GRAW for the 360 at $14.98 (it was in the system at that price).

They had Ghost Squad but it showed up as out of system and they offered it to me for $29.99. Same thing happened with :ps3: Def Jam Icon.

I picked up Ghost Squad tonight for $12.46. It had one of those "As-Is website item" stickers, with a barcode right on the price sticker.

Another game that was out of the system (and a possible website only item) was Prince of Persia: Rival Swords for the Wii. I asked the cashier if he'd give it to me for $12.46 also but he said that was up to the pricing team so I left without it. Please note I encountered this game at 3 different Targets as "item not found."

Also, I saw The Godfather for the Wii at $24.98 at two different Targets.

Hit up the Target and found 5 Copies of Ghost Squad

All Scanned as "Item not found" I could not get the Employees to sell it. They also took the other 4 copies off the shelves.

This is a huge YMMV of the OMG variety.

I just picked up Lord of the Rings: BFME2 for $7.48 at the recently opened Super Target in Rowlett, Texas off of 66.

They had about 15-20 copies for $14.98 a week ago, and now I picked up the last one to sell to one of my friends (for just cost) so he can join the rest of our group.

There was also a lot of Tony Hawk Proving Ground for $29.98, so hopefully I can snag one of those when the price comes down.
