They'll be VERY good for clearance not too long from now. its still a relatively new store, so most of thier stuff hasnt had time to go down, that goes along with the fact its not very high traffic yet.

I officially love my Target.

If I haven't felt that way before, I do now.

I picked up Amplitude there for 7.48, clearanced. It wasn't in the Greatest Hits section, but instead, in the glass case, but marked down nonethless.

But the barcode scanning doesn't work for me. I wonder why. The price scanners doesn't seem to pick up on the barcodes.

The games section in my local target absolutely stinks! There are no deals whatsoever and the chepeast game is $20

Gameplay is what makes a game worth playing - not story or graphics

Muchos Kudos to the originators of this topic! :P

At my Target, Primal (in the loose value games section) had a sale sticker that said it was 20.98 marked down from 29.99 and then scanned for 7.48. :)

I asked an employee to check the price on Amplitude for me and pulled one from behind the glass and it scanned for 7.48, while labeled 39.99. :D

We need to find a Target employee who can run the entire games section a couple of times a week with their handheld computer system and report back as to what has dropped in price. :idea:

My local Target has about 50 Sony PS1 memory cards for $7.48. Half off of regular price, but 3rd party memory cards are even cheaper.

While I'm not an employee, I am one of the originators of the creation and scanning of barcodes. I usually go in 2/3 times a week to look around, see what's been sitting on the shelves and come up with a barcode list to look at prices.

When something like the HSG-3 and Blinx deals roll around, it's usually because someone stumbled upon them, since GH/PH games usually don't leave the 19.99 price point.

But if there are any games that you want checked, posts them with the UPC # (usually from Half.com or Tradestop.com), and I'll do my best to get them checked out.

i just got HSG3 this weekend for 7.48. it scanned for 19.99 but the clearance tag was still there so i got it for that price. just a tip if you're using printed barcodes to check prices. look for clearance tags also.

What target in Jersey had them marked down? Most that I've been in are "tagless targets" in which most of the time, things never actually get a clearance tag that are on clearance. (and things that are marked on clearance, aren't)

I picked up the last copy of BloodRayne (Gamecube version) for $7.48 at my local Target (Greenbelt, MD). The clerk at the register did a double-take when the price range up and said he'd been looking for a game to buy. I'd originally stopped by to check on Primal, but I couldn't find any copies of that. :(

just came back from my local target in anaheim hills, ca and picked up Legend of Wrestling II for $7.48. It was for the playstation2. They also had scropion king for gamecube for $3.48, i mean both weren't good games, but for those prices it ain't bad. Legend of Wrestling II wasn't as bad as i thought when i played it afterwards

Not really amongt the best clearance deals out there, but Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is $19.99 at Target. Everyone else seems to have it for $30.

Same price for The Italian Job as well...both for Xbox.

I didn't check whether this applied for the PS2 versions. I hope this wasn't in the Sunday ad.

Over the last two days I've picked up Primal and ZOE:2nd Runner for $7.48 Each. ZOE was tagged at $49.99 and Primal was tagged at $29.99.

Thanks to Cheapassgamer.com and UPCdatabase.com. It's getting alot easier to verify deals at Target.

I did as this post suggested and made a list of games I might be interested in if the price was right and went and scanned them this morning.
Has anyone else tried to scan the barcodes for Shinobi and Mark of Kri?
The scanner recognized them both (at least what I got from half.com and typed into upcdatabase) as Sony software but said the price was $0.00!
The store did not have either of those games so I could not proceed further.
Has this happened to anyone else trying this?

When the price is scanned at $0.00, it has something to do with it no longer being stocked. What happens if there is an instance where the product in question is in stock, the proper thing to do (some employees won't bother doing this, saying that it can't be sold, or make a price up) is that they check for the last sold price, and then sell it to you at that, which is normally between $3.50 and $7.50 depending on the title and store.

Good luck with your Targ├ęt bargain hunting

That happened to me yesterday when I picked up Primal. I scanned Terminator Dawn of Fate for PS2 and XBOX and Test Drive for PS2, all of them came up Value Software $0.00. And none of them were in the glass case.

it was the Target on Rt9 south in freehold. like i said it was marked as clearance even though it scanned at 19.99. the guy gave it to me for the clearance price since the tag was still there. i assume he took the tag out right after my sale.
if it is marked on clearance you should definitely be able to get it at that price no matter how it scans.

I was just wondering because the Targets in East Windsor, Princeton, Menlo Park, Burlington (NJ), and Oxford Valley (PA) didn't have them tagged at all.

However on a side note, the NHL 2003 (XBX) are all clearance tagged at 14.98 in Princeton, even though they are scanning at $19.99.

As was explained to me by a Target employee, if the item rings up at $0.00, then the item has been delisted and should have been sent back to warehouse. If the item is still in the store, in your hands for example, they have to sell it to you, but at the last price the item was listed at. The problem seems to be that only the hand scanners that employees have can find this listed price and they usually have to walk you to the register so they can tell the cashier since the cashier's register will show $0.00 as well. You can find some pretty good deals some of the time, but usually the last price is the clearance price as discussed on this website, ie. $7.48. I haven't ran across any great deals like games less than a dollar.

I forgot to post this yesterday: When I picked up Primal at Target I also got a PS2 Controller for $12.48 clearance. It was a Smoke Black (Transparent) controller. Which worked out for me because that's what my other controller is.

So check the accessory aisle of your local Target.

Target Southport...aka Naptown.

$3.78 PSOne Official Memory Cards
The Italian Job $19.99 Xbox

Not really a great deal, but I just wanted to ask a question about those S-Video cables. Is there some sort of recognition in the splitter that switches the device that's on?

I saw that all the plugs feed into just one A/V cable, so is that how that works? Or is there even enough slack in the console connectors to allow that?

You can have all ur systems plugged if thats what ur asking.. Although you can only use one at a time.. =P

Just one AV cable yes.. But theres little room to split.. Basicly... All ur sytems have to be pretty damn close to each other.. Or right on top of each other..

My local Target has had some games with $12.99 stickers across their upper right corners for some time. Today I decided to scan them and see what happened.
Mad Maestro (PS2) (which is in stock) scanned $0.00.
Haven: Call of the King (PS2) scanned $3.24.

Target East Windsor NJ, PSOne Mad Catz Memory Cards, $1.48 each.... what a deal

Target Princeton, NJ- Turok Evolution $3.48, still not a deal ;)

A note about the Princeton NJ one, they have moved out a bunch of clearance product from behind glass that now scans at $0.00, but rings in at <$20..... beware. (Titles included Resident Evil GC, Eternal Darkness, SpongeBob/Spatula)
