No price drops for anything I wanted this week. The price that shows up on the self check scanner is tied to the same database as the register, correct?

Damn my target. I've been waiting for Eye of Judgment to go down to $30 from $48 for the last three weeks and now you're telling me people are getting it for $17! Hopefully the employees won't snatch it up like they did the GTA IV SE.

We should be able to categorize Targets by now. I mean, there's no way the markdowns are random. There are probably about 3 or 4 different "types" of Targets. If we figure that out, we can figure out exactly when our local stores will have certain prices.

I think it depends on the employee who actually does the markdowns. One of the Targets in my area, suddenly changed the day on which they do markdowns. They used to do them on Mondays. I still haven't figured out which day they do them now. Most of the time, this Target would always start clearance at 50%. Now they still have DBZ at $41.98 and GTA:SE 360 at $62.98.

I missed out on RE:UC, MP3 and Bully all for the Wii at this Target because of the change. Found Bully at another Target and traded for MP3 but have had no luck with RE:UC.

I don't think it's that easy. When I worked at Target, I worked briefly at this old azz Target who received markdowns fairly quickly. Then they closed up shop, and built a new one nearby and made it the district store for the area. It was also close to a mall, probably meaning better sales. The new store now is probably the slowest dropping store ever. When the price change teams get the new drops, they come from corporate, who probably determine how fast the drops should come based on the store's perfomance. If they can milk the clearance and sell stuff at a higher price, they will.
At least, that's my opinion. We won't be able to figure out anything specific. It is safe to say that when you see an item drop, the soonest it will drop will be two weeks from that date, if not longer. I don't think I've ever seen an item drop, then drop again the next Monday.

Oh, btw, I went to the Target on Arizona Avenue and Warner in Chandler, AZ. Tons and tons of Scene It for 14.98. I picked up a couple for some other CAGs-- check the Target trading topic for more details.

I picked up singstar amped for $13 drove home then decided to bring it back. I figured I might as well just wait for rock band 2. Other than that no drops on anything else. Unreal has been $20 for weeks now I wish it would drop 1 more time then I'd pick it up.

Nothing at the White Plains, NY Target.



I actually picked up Warhawk with headset for 29.99 (I think this was probably a mistake on their part, although there was a few copies on the shelf behind the price tag, it ran up at 49.99 but they price corrected) I also picked up Buzz Mega Quiz with controllers for 9.95.
This was all at the White Plains store.

Going to target later on thanks to EoJ drop, willing to bet hoarders already took everything and I mean everything.


My bet was right, picked clean. Though there was one particular item hiding. GTAIV SE for the 360, picked it up for my brother.

sacsquash, jealous of your target location. Mine's are always cleaned out (darn bay area people *waves*).

Where do find the DPCI number?


Mine are real challenges as well. I am locked in a struggle against all the nerds at 4 colleges for clearance games. Emory/Georgia State/Georgia Tech near my house, and Southern Tech near my workplace. Not to mention the hordes of atlanta CAGs.

Warhawk bundle is $29.99 at all Targets. It's a regular markdown, not a clearance.

Big score for me today. I went to the Target that I NEVER go to because they usually don't have anything. Found LO, Scene It, and Grid for $14! Saw Skate at the same price but passed. I've already spent WAY too much this month. Anyways they had a ton of copies of LO, but I grabbed the last Scene It and Grid. I'm a happy camper today! :)

I checked that one today on the scanner and it was still 49.99.


I picked one up a couple of weeks ago for 29.99 with headset. It was outside the glass case on the clearance shelves. Scanned and rung up as 29.99. Didn't check out at the electronics section.

Today saw Bourne :ps3: for $29.99 :(

Went in looking for DBZ and Bourne for PS3 and they were still both 29.98. Didn't see a Grid or Scene It but they had at least 4 Lost Odyssey's for 14.98. Passed since I have it already.

This was all at the White Plains store.

Same thing happened to me with warhawk. I knew it was going to ring up at 49.99 but the price under it was 29.99 so they just adjusted it.

Warhawk bundle is $29.99 at all Targets. It's a regular markdown, not a clearance.

it's 29.99 for the game only version but the headset version is 49.99.

Continuing my question from the last Target Clearance thread...

I scanned the Lost Odyessy UPC this afternoon...it's still $41.98! WTF! I have no idea what's going on. This Target is usually pretty decent on keeping up with the clearance prices nationwide.

If you like JRPG's it's the one of the best ones in the last 2 years right up there with Tales of Vesperia. It's Mistwalker's good JRPG for 360, the map system and enviroments will feel a little like FFX, great story, and a little bit of Shadow Hearts thrown into the battle system.

Lost Odyssey takes place in a world where magic energy is used to drive technological advances, however, such progress has led to war between three rival nations: the monarchy of Numara, the kingdom of Gohtza, and the republic of Uhra, recently changed from a monarchial society.
While most of the population is mortal, five immortal beings have walked among them for the past millennium: Kaim, Seth, Ming, Sarah, and Gongora. The five are spirits that traveled from another world, taking the human forms they have now upon arriving. However, Gongora took the memories from the other four before sending them off along into the world. At the present of the game, none of the four have fully recovered their memories, but they have begun recalling bits of the past.


i bought it at full price so at $15 its a steal so i highly recommend it

I'm so lucky, the Target near my house is out of the way, and I can get almost any clearance game there, assuming they have any in stock when the clearance starts. I love my Target... \\:D/:beer:

This isn't listed, but I saw Guild Wars GOTY edition for PC for $15. Sorry didn't get the DCPI. it was weird cuz i didn't see Factions tagged on clearance. I would of scanned it, but I only found out it was listed on clearance when I got home.
