I swear I was gonna make this last week. I didn't know if it'd be a good idea or not.
I think it'd be good to re-mention Grigmiore and Shining Force EXA, both for PS2 for 20.00. Clearance or not, it's pretty universal.
Also I saw a Play Amp by Logitech for PSP was 15.00. This was Apache Junction, AZ. Also the DS and GBA holiday bundles with the carrying case were 14.99. This seems to be a universal drop though.
You hurt the right person and you're wrong for life.

In 2005 I found dreamcast games at a NEW Walmart. I kid you not. Apparently, they had been transfered from an older store that had been shut down.

2005, folks.

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.


Never mind. You missed the other part of the argument. I didn't mean proof of YMMV, I meant proof there was never the same item on clearance in multiple stores in different areas. Which over the years have included black 360 peripherals, Gameboy Players, Playstation 2 HDs just to name a couple off the top of my head.

Video Now Players for 3$ (toy department)

I saw 2 young employees marking all the stuff down in toys, said they were given a $3000 limit to work with, but thought they would go over that. So its true that walmart gives stores a set amount of dollars to clearance and then distributes that over the various items on the clearance piles. Not 5 min after I got to the clearance toys the resellers hit and started snapping up everything in sight and loading down 2-3 carts each, strangely they were taking all the walmart off brand toys and leaving the good stuff behind.

The clearance values they assign to the items seem to be pretty arbitrary, they have the employee walk around with a price scanner, scan each item, then assign a value to it on their own, they are like, ok this item is 1$, this is 3$ etc.. There is no markdown schedule sent from corporate.

The values are based on walmarts original pricing though, which for some items, isn't all that great!

No I don't work for walmart and never had, I just stayed in the toy aisle long enough to overhear the 2 clerks talking. This was clearly a case of being in the right place at the right time.

i see you point but people are posting whatever deal they can find, and not just clearance stuff. If people are just posting local deals then it should go to regional section.

How do you know the difference? Wait until somebody is in two different states to verify they got XXX at 19.99 and XXX at 14.99 at a different Wal-Mart? I'd rather filter it myself so I know what to watch out for in the coming days/weeks/months. If they put everything that was clearance in one place it wouldn't be as big of a deal, but in my experience that isn't the case.

Lexington, VA:

Halo 2 for $19.82

which I believe is $10 below MSRP, so an OK deal if you need a new copy.

Spotted this in Wake Forest, NC. Shelf label clearly read $39.99 as a non-sale, non-clearance price. Walmart website says $59.99, so at the very least this B&M only and as always with Walmart this is extremely YMMV.

I found Project Sylpheed and Earth Defense force 2017 for $8.96 each at the wal-mart in Lithonia, GA, extreme YMMV.

In 2005 I found dreamcast games at a NEW Walmart. I kid you not. Apparently, they had been transfered from an older store that had been shut down.

2005, folks.


The wal-mart I just listed also has a sealed copy of mario party 3 (n64) for sale.

The $19.99 bin at our Walmart had (has) a copy of March Madness 2004 (with Melo on the cover) for PS2 still.

So I was at Wal-Mart about 3 days ago and saw Ridge Racer 7 for PS3 RT'ed (Red tagged) for $15.00. I didn't have my wallet on me that day so I said to myself that I'll get it the next day... totally forgot about that 'til now.

I went back today to get the game, but it wasn't there anymore. :cry:
Then I just browsed around and came upon a clearance rack with very few 360/XB1/NGC/PS2 games left at dirt cheap prices ($5-$25). I looked through them and found Zelda Twilight Princess.

I grabbed it right away since the game still goes for $50 at BB and Gamestop/EB (and $40 used, I believe).

I'm not sure if it's YMMV or not, but it doesn't hurt to check out your local Wal-Mart and look for the Red Tagged games.

Oh yeah, this was at the San Leandro, CA Davis St. location if anyone local is curious.

Just thought I'd share.

There were 3 copies behind the glass display where all the other current games are in. The one I grabbed was just sitting in the clearance rack.

The Walmarts here are a freakin' joke. They never had any regional clearance games. Everything is around MSRP. One of them even had a couple of opened-and-then-resealed ancient PSP 1800mAh battery for $40 each.

Because of the YMMV-ness of Wal-Mart, it's earned it's own thread...

On a related note, I heard that one time, there was this guy who had a friend, who had a cousin that saw a Wal-Mart deal on here and then went to his Wal-Mart, and get this, the deal was there too. I still don't believe it... ;-)

It's good to get the word out there, though. Maybe somebody... somewhere...

You must live by the same one I do. Clearance prices are about 2% below msrp, and they never have any of these ymmv even if the product is in stock. I go there for food and dont even look in the electronics, cause I know there isnt any deals.
