Thanks to everyone, especially the few that had super long posts with drops. I secretly despise those posts even though they help a lot for our list.

Did the 360 version of Afro Samurai get clearanced or just the PS3? The OP has not been updated and I stopped reading this thread about 200 pages ago.


Did you smoke a pack of Virgina Slims after that little huffy post, Nancy? You know, there was a time where the OP in the Target clearance threads just said, "This is the Target clearance thread."
You hurt the right person and you're wrong for life.

I WANT THIS. Hopefully my target will do some decent drops soon. They had some good ones a month or two ago, but nothing I wanted.

Target did something completely wasteful when I returned two factory sealed clearance games back to the store. They opened them up right in front of me, even though they were clearly still factory sealed (not the cheap reshrinkwrap) and even had the old target price sticker on them. So now they can no longer sell them as new (granted, clearance) games and from what I was told, will ship them back as defective. Anyone else experience this when you return a still new game?


Yep, the Target at Brandywine always do it when I take stuff back, you're right, it's very wasteful. Maybe they've had a big problem with people returning empty boxes.

Yep certain targets here in Jacksonville, FL do that. There was actually someone that went to different targets here, buying games, dvds, pc software etc, opening them up, removing the items and replacing with blank disc, resealing them items and then returning the items over a few week period. Eventually people started returning the items with blank disc and thats went these targets started opening all items and returning them as defective. That last for a few months. Now days it depends on who is behind the counter. The last time as about a month ago when I returned to copies of Fracture for the PS3..

You. You're the reason I can't find Mirror's Edge anywhere around me!

Anyone wanna sell me their copy of Bully? (I'll take either 360 or PS2).



You trying to find it for cheap or just trying to find it?

I see PS2 copies all the time in Target. I bought the 360 edition at BB, however.

When I returned 2 Guitar Hero Bundles, my local Target did the same thing and opened the boxes to check to see if the guitar and games were there. They were on clearance for $24.98 and out of the system so I guess they sent them back somewhere.

Were they women?


Yes, they were women...though not sure why that would matter.

What games and how much were they when you returned them? Any reason why you didn't want them?


Iridium Runners and Pirates: Legend of the Black Buccaneer for $4.98 each. I got them for $2.48 at another Target earlier this week so I figured I would return the more "expensive" copies.

Yep, the Target at Brandywine always do it when I take stuff back, you're right, it's very wasteful. Maybe they've had a big problem with people returning empty boxes.


Yep, this actually happened at the Brandywine Target. Now that I think of it, they also opened a factory sealed Cursive CD when I returned it after getting it cheaper at Best Buy. Maybe they have had a problem at that store with people returning empty cases after resealing games (though, again, these were clearly factory sealed which is nearly impossible to imitate with a standard shrinkwrap machine).

Target on Miramar Pwky had:

Afro Samurai(PS3) - $14.xx
Endless ocean(Wii) - $20.xx
Mirror's Edge(360) - $29.xx

Everything else looked like shovelware. The Pines Target had literally nothing.

Noticed Endless Ocean and Nights for the Wii are still old prices. I recently saw both for $14.98 and $7.48 respectively. In other words, 50% off.

I'm guessing we're getting into that Summer lull again. I don't recall many good discounts around this time last year until the end of Summer.

Also, pickings were sort of slim during the $10 coupon. I think more people were psyched at the idea of getting free games than they were of actually getting good games for cheap.

Wheelman was tagged with a red clearance sticker for $49.98. Still high, but should be continue to drop. BTW, BB should have it on sale for $29.99 this weekend if you can't wait.

Cant take credit for that,, I havent picked up 1 copy of Mirrors Edge yet, only saw 1 copy at the Hodges/Beach Blvd target, left it and picked up Aftro Samurai and Far Cry 2 for the 360 instead..

Target in Nashua, NH never has anything in the way of games on clearance. I've been in rather frequently lately as well. Can anyone else confirm? I'm talking The Pheasant Lane Mall Target.

Yeah I stopped by the Target in Pheasant lane mall, Nashua NH a couple of days ago and they basically had zero PS3 games on clearance. There were tons of PS2 and PSP games. Picked up PSP MLB The Show '08 for like $7.50. This used to be a good location until last year (scored a lot of games), but nothing at all this year.

Guys, I know this is not about games but does anyone know if the patio furniture gets the percentage clearancing as well? We always see the "Was/Now" clearance price stickers on the games but they often ring up cheaper than that. Has anyone had a similar experience with patio furniture ringing up cheaper than stickered? Thanks.

buy patio furniture in september, you'll get it for next to nothing. I got a grill an patio set for the same price of the grill at this time last year. Patience is the key

Yes they do but as said above, you have to wait for the season to come to an end for the clearance to start. over the last few years I have picked up 2 $400 outdoor fountains for $100 each on 75% clearance, several woodend $80 lounge chairs for $20 on 75% off, 1 large and 1 small firepit and a patio table and chair set @ 75% off..

Take note that Im in FL and most Targets here will carry outdoor funiture most of the year expect for the winter time.

Yeah, I bought GH: Legends Bundle and when I opened it to play it, it was a PC version, so apparently they don't open up returns at my Target.
DAMN..... who would of thought that being a CAG would be so expensive?:-k

This just happened to me earlier this week. I returned SCIV and the lady opened the game and checked for the disc. Actually, I don't think it's all that bad when the game is out of their system.

Last year, I posted how I returned GoW and the lady opened the case to check for the disc, eventhough, GoW was still in there system at MSRP($59.99). Now that, I find to be ridiculous since the game was completely sealed. It seems like a waste of time and money. I'm sure that of all the games that have ever been returned at Target, only a miniscule amount have had the disc switched out.

The one that that ended quickly was the $5 off $25 toy puchcase that was photoshopped to remove the 'toy' part and when scanned would work on anything in the store.
The Xbox one was also a photoshopped coupon, but that one worked, even a few days past the expiration date.
