Given the extreme YMMV nature of Walmart deals/clearances, it makes absolutely no sense to make a new thread every time someone finds a new deal at their local Walmart. So, if you happen to find a good deal, save the forum some clutter and post in this thread.

Please include the store location (City, state, etc), as well as the item and price.

Either way, it will hopefully reduce the clutter of the the random WM deal posts by having them in one thread.

I've honestly never seen a real Wal-mart video game clearance with my own eyes...might be because I don't really shop at Wal-Mart. One time I found Double Dash and Partners in Time in this "$19.99" bin but they wouldn't honor it!

wont it be better to put walmart deal under regional deal? Unlike the other clearance store (kmart, target, sears) you have to go to the same store to get the deal.

Walmart in Los Angeles - "ghetto Walmart" in the Crenshaw Plaza:

$25 for WiiPlay
$19.87 for Hoshigami DS
$20 for Blazing Angels PS3 and some of the ghetto fabulous PS3 sports games (NBA 2K7, one of the hockey games).

This was last week; there were still multiple copies of Hoshigami left (took the last 2 WiiPlays).

SPLASH!

WRONG. Once it starts clearance pricing one place, you'll likely see it all over the place on clearance as well. Maybe not at the same price and maybe not at the same time. So is the first 3 pages of the thread going to be the same tired debate?

Walmart clearance are up to individual store. I remember getting nintendogs for $15 at one store, and every other walmart is selling it at full price. One store might be marking down recent games that no other store will mark down for a long time.

Ok explain how I see the same stuff in different states on clearance then? And besides, in an earlier thread somebody explains how it works, and it has something to do with a list that goes out. The black Xbox 360 peripherals are a great example. So unless you've got proof, I'm not buying it.

Thank GOD!!!!

I've thought about starting one of these for ages.... far too many extreme (read: one of a kind) Wal-mart 'deals' have been clogging the forums the past few months. Glad to see things are going to change.

Great idea OP. Too bad this sorta stuff can't be posted in the regional deals forums, but ah well... that goes with an exploding and unfamiliar user-base.

One thing that I've learned about Walmart clearance deals is that many items will be marked down at multiple locations, but the amount of markdown, clearance schedule, and availability seem to vary wildly. Similar to the Best Buy clearance theory, clearances seem to occur more frequently and have a more aggressive rate of price reduction for stores of smaller volume, size, and market.

Also, clearances can be determined automatically (from the corporate inventory system), or by department & store management. I've seen a store manager mark down each item on four clearance floats in the front of the store to $1 on a whim. I walked out with 5 Crossman BB guns, two floodlights, 4 baseball bats, and 6 PC games.. all only $1 a piece (of course, that's a bit of an extreme situation.. and very "right place, right time"... mullets soon began to swarm the area like nobody's business).

Most stores are notorious for ignoring price updates for games. If you see a stack of 5 year old games tucked away in the back of a case, chances are a few are marked down but not stickered. Of course, that's a crapshoot. Some will sit for years at full MSRP (one local Walmart carried Suikoden II for 2 years after printing ceased @ $49.99, and they only started selling after Ebay prices inflated).

Also, depending upon the department manager.. some stores may have boxes full of "consolidated" backstock sitting on a couple floats in the back. If you know a couple of employees at a local store, it may be worth the trouble to get them to look into it. This also depends on the age of the store, and the amount of shelf space for the games (as older software is taken to the back to make room for new mainstream releases). Other chains without their proverbial "shit together" (Kmart being a great example) can have boxes of really old backstock sitting in the back (we're talking Saturn or PS1 games, due to the poor inventory management & control).

So hopefully this info will help someone. It IS all dependent upon the market, size, and location of each store; however, some clearances will be at many given stores across different regions (just at different price increments). Keep in mind.. distribution centers are the ones who get all of a certain item.. and general logic would dictate that the quantity of an item would be distributed evenly across all stores in respect to the size of the store/volume sales/etc etc. That's why all Walmart stores have an assload of merchandise with Billy Mays and "as seen on TV!" stickers plastered on the packaging :)

I just gave you the example of nintendogs. someone posted Wii Play for $25. Do you really thing thats on the list? Markdowns are up to individual store.

I was at a Wal-Mart slightly outside the boundaries of my usual haunts over the weekend and got really excited when I stumbled upon a giant "Clearance" rack at the end of one of the aisles. This magical area contained gems such as Excite Truck for $49.99, PS2 Greatest Hits titles for $19.99, and my personal favorite, Madden 2004 for Playstation 1 for $29.99. No I won't tell you where it is, I want it all to myself!!!

Yep, this sounds exactly like the "clearance" area I found at the local WM stores. It was mostly Wii shovelware and greatest hits stuff, all for retail. And about 10 copies of a Tiger Woods game for PS1.

Sucks, of course, that we need a thread for a major B&M retailer, whose deals are almost always YMMV.
