Went to my local target in Kennesaw, GA Friday to pick up some candy for the movies. As I was checking out I noticed they had a sign taped to the register that stated (To my best memory and no picture taken)

"Due to recent fraud activities we no longer accept these coupons"

then below was the $5 off Toys coupon and a 20 dollar one

Just thought i'd let you know. After some CAG research I saw that it was posted that the toy coupon is "This coupon may be dead. As of July 2nd, stores were notified to stop accepting copies of the coupon. YMMV. Even though it doesn't expire until 10/1/08"

I believe it. The thing is, with many of these coupons, they're sent out to specific customers as a sort of thanks. The intention and expectated cost is not for mass distribution. So when SD or FW or even CAG gets a hold of these coupons and everyone starts printing up one after another after another, it's a huge problem.

My big bro who's now a marketing exec with Sears/Kmart Holdings went through this for the first time last November/December. One coupon intended for a VERY limited target group was uploaded on FW and it did substantial damage.

Understandable, but their first mistake was making it available via a URL. They should have made them unique or at least mailed them to the intended recipients.

So im just throwing this out here. I need a roommate or a place to live in Kennesaw area. I wasn't sure if anyone else is looking for a roommate or wants to room, but we can talk more about it.

My current lease is up at the end of the month so I need a place to live on Aug. 1st. If anyone is interested you can pm or email me at zacharyv@gmail.com and we can talk more about it.

Thanks

There are about 5 Guitar Hero 2's (PS2 game only) left for 9.98 (75% off) at the Dallas Hwy Target in Marietta. They're on an end cap in between the books and DVDs. I picked one up, now looking for a cheap ass guitar controller. Someone also put a MX vs ATV Unleashed (14.98) for the PS3 in the TV on DVD section, probably trying to hide it. I left it there.

Check the BB in Acworth on 41. They had some wireless PS2 guitar controllers for like 13.xx or so.

Speaking of T2, the "definitive version" according to most (Xtreme edition?) is a $5.50 end cap filler at Target now

what a great movie. it's a shame they had to pull a Lucas on it. That said do you see The Terminator on end caps. cause if I could get that I would really be set.

I leave for 6 months and you guys move the thread on me. Geez I can take a hint.

Anyway I moved to a new house in Alpharetta in December and couldn't get freaking DSL for 6 freaking months. Been in withdrawel without xbox live for all this time. In theory I might have been able to piggy back the 360 onto my verizon wireless card, but didn't bother trying.

Now if I can only hire 2 more developers so I actually have some time to catch up.

Anybody interested in a Jawbone II bluetooth headset? It's brand new in the box and I wanted to get 100 for it. It retails for 130. I figured I'd offer it up here before I put it on Craig's list cause you guys are cool.

cumberland sears doesn't have much in the way of games (they do have two copies of zak and wiki for $20, didn't ask to ring them up, could be cheaper; "clearance"/cheaper games are on the bluray aisle and endcap) but they have some accessories on clearance. i nabbed the last 360 remote but there was a 360 memory card for cheap ($5-10 i think, can't remember) and a pack of ds game cases for under $1. also had some usb memory sticks on clearance.

took a field trip outside my jurisdiction today up to the discover mills mall. don't know if people are still having trouble finding them, but the FYE there had a pile of wiis in the window

closeby, the best buy on pleasant hill rd. has several bins of 40% off games. highlights include folklore, shivering isles (360), and destroy all humans wii. there was one copy of eternal sonata but i saw it on the regular wall too, so who knows. mostly 360 games, some ps2, and a smattering of ps3, wii and ds. games were marked their normal marked down prices (mostly $30-60) and you'll need a manager to do the 40% off at the register.

the toys r us down the street has five or so copies of elite beat agents for $10 in a clearance bin

back to my regular smyrna boringness..

no, none of the games in there were marked (even though the sign said "40% off marked games"). i bought a copy of shivering isles, it rang up at regular price and i said it came from the 40% off bin. the guy called over a manager to manually price adjust which he did without any additional questioning or hassle.

None that I know of, Barret Pkwy and Ackworth (41) had the normal sale rack as of Monday. Cumberland (41) BB Dosen't ever seem to have any games on sale; I guess they get stolen first.

Oh, as of last night, there were no visible clearance games at the Lindbergh Target. They did have two Wiis, though. A lady bought one while I was there. Still no Mario Kart!

There were some Incubus CDs with As Is stickers for about $4, if anyone likes them.
