Target @ Town Center had it's game section remodeled.

Good: it's an actual nice experience now.

Bad: almost zero clearance right now.

My connection at my local Target informed me they're big clearances will be in June once all the stores are remodeled (which is their main concern right now, hence why we haven't seen massive drops in the last 2 months).

Haven't been in a remodeled one yet. Are the TV's "wall mounted"?
Besides Star Trek, when it comes to movies, they're is no such thing as a "re-imagining." Run. It's only going to be a crappy remake.

I didn't really pay attention to the TVs, but I think so. The glass cases for the games are gone, and they are on racks that are the same size as the rest of the aisles. You can fondle the games in protective cases and look at the back. Games are locked in a cage behind so you still need assistance to buy one. But a much needed upgrade.

Anyone looking for a 9.99 Yakuza 2 used for the PS2? BBV on 41 in Kennesaw has one.

I found my 75% off copies of GH:VH, DJ Hero, and GH5 last month, so I'm happy and set for a good while now (plus, yeah, the Targets have nothing these days).

OH, one thing of note-- I snagged a 2-pack of Belkin HDMI cables for $10 at the ATL Station store last week, if anyone needs some of those.

I got NO MORE HEROES 2 (via Goozex) and SMG2 (via Amazon) in the mail this week, too, so I'm set for stuff to play right now. :)

Guitar Hero 2/Guitar Hero Aerosmith combo pack either $10 or $15

There were other titles but those are the only ones that stick out. I got Soul Clalibur 4 and Skate 2.

Not sure if this helps you too much, but with the EDGE card, it's only $16.20 at Gamestop used.

I paid full price for it and feel it's worth it.

Hiya. Anyone had any luck finding a 20-dollar "Mass Effect 2" at a metro K-Mart? I called the one at 5597 Buford Hwy around 11 Sunday morning, and the nice fellow that answered the phone in Electronics said he'd just sold the last copy. Glad I didn't make the effort to drive.

For anyone near the Mall of Georgia, HTC is doing a promotional event for their Avia phone outside of the Best Buy location today. Let a rep tell you about the phone features for under two minutes, and they will give you a $10 Best Buy gift card.

Works well with the Blur deal going on, walk out of the store with the Blur game for about two bucks after the giftcard and coupons. I had no problem using both the RZ coupon and the mfr coupon at this location.

Just know that the $5 coupons expire the end of next month. For those of y'all who buy movies all the time I'm sure thats no big deal. But for someone like me who hardly ever does, it's disappointing. The three coupons I have will probably all go unused.

Target BOGO Video Games

Does anyone want one of the BOGO video games from the Target sale this week? If so I would be willing to go in together and split the weighted cost (ie. $40 game and $60 game; each person pays 40% and 60% respectively).

I am interested in Borderlands 360, but not really anything else...

Bummer the coupons end so soon. I'm still keeping my DVDs for now for use on portable players, but there's one or two I might trade in for this. There are a bunch of good blus that hit 14.99 though. You really can't find anything? I'm tempted to get Die Hard 2 or Taken with $10 movie cash for $10.

Borderlands is awesome, especially if you like dungeon crawler/Diablo type games. I haven't seen anything from E3 last week, but I kinda thought they might announce a Borderlands GOTY with all the DLC there. There's gotta be one coming and it would be worth it to save on all the DLC.

There are a few movies I'd like to pick up (wish they would put Finding Nemo, Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro on blu) but I I have to watch the $, I have a hard time buying a movie for $10+ when I'm only going to watch it once every three or four years.

A little update: :D

Target:
The Target on Barrett Parkway, East West, and 41 all have zero clearance games right now. This remodeling has killed the clearance sections.
I did notice that one of the B1G1 games at the East West Target was SC: Conviction. I don't remember seeing that one on the official list.

Sears:
Sears at Cumberland Mall was a disappointment as well the clearance consisted of a bunch of $20 and $30 run of the mill greatest/platinum hits. I spied Shadowrun for the 360 (I REALLY want to find this game cheap) but it was packaged in with Condemned for $30!!! What the Hell?!?

Best Buy:
Best Buy at Barrett Parkway and the one on 41 would not accept the Blur for $10 deal.

Walmart:
The Walmart on the East West had a good $5 dvd bin. Plus The Patriot on blu for $15, I picked that one up!


I hope this helps someone or at least saves you a trip somewhere! :D I will try and update everyone on the stores in my area somewhat regularly!


_____________________________________________

Requests:
If anyone knows of a Walmart that has the SOCOM w/ Sony Headset in stock I would appreciate it.

If anyone spies Oblivion GOTY, Fallout 3 GOTY, FF XIII, Splinter Cell Conviction,Bioshock 2, Alan Wake at a good price please let me know!

Agreed, Borderlands is awesome. I haven't heard anything about a GOTY, but at one point there was mention of at least one more expansion pack. So, I'm crossing my fingers that they still intend to put it out.

RE: the Smyrna/ Marietta store on 41
You will not get any deals there- EVAH!
Seriously, the managers there are terrible. If the deal requires an over-ride it will not happen.

If a deal scans w/o one and you're there early you have a chance but I've seen managers tell employees to deny some deals that still scan.

I even got shot down on the Blur deal just trying to use just one of the coupons because as the manager said, "it's on sale; The coupon says it's not good when it's on sale."

Some of the employees there even "cherry picked" the bins the morning that the $10 game sale happened.

I've gotten a few pennied guides there, but they are pretty good about pulling them.

It's my closest BBY and I avoid it because it's a waste of my time.

Terrible.

Yeah, the employees there are generally worthless and or stragne. One of the guys in the Apple section found out I had a jailbroken iPhone and he kept hinting that I was pirating apps. Apparently that is all you can do with a jailbroken device :roll: Another time I had an employee ask me if I needed any help, I told him he did because he had a big earthworm on his shoulder.

There is one lady in the customer service area that is helpful and nice. I don't expect her to last to long at that store.

And thanks for keeping an eye out for me!
