Has anyone had a situation where you bring in a barcode to scan and it comes up with the clearance price, but when you get the game and the cashier scans it at the register, the original higher price comes up? I haven't really checked my local target stores for these deals, and I just wanted to ask if something like this ever happened to anyone.


As I understand it, the shelf scanners are tied to the same database as the checkout scanners. The only issue one might have is if it scans zero, and you have them look up the price in the department, and then check out up front. It happened to me the other day. She was about to key in the price on the tag when I stopped her and told her they had checked it back in electronics, so she just keyed in the price I gave her.

So, unless the self scanner says 0, the price of the barcode you scan at the scanner should be the same at the register? Thanks for clearing it up. Although I haven't really checked my Target for deals, I did scan a barcode for Xenosaga once, and it came up at 0.

The handhelds "ask" the main database what the price is for the product. The registers and the pole scanners only check that exact stores prices, which could have been zerod out.

I work at a Target, in the Electronics Dept. I put out the new releases on Tuesdays, as well as stock the Electronics on truck days which are M, W, and F. There are many games, and software on clearance currently at my store. A lot of PS1 games, and Need for Speed Underground is like 20 something. I can send games to people who request them and send payment for clearance items they may want me to look for, just ask, I don't mind. Also, did anybody take advantage of my Cody Banks 50% off any DVD post? I know that I sure did. 8)



If you ever find a Sonic Mega Collection for cheap on the clearence let me know. I have been really wanting this game..

Holy carp, someone who actually visits a Target in my time zone! I might have to see if they still have this one, I demo'ed FF and it was pretty cool. [I work about seven minutes away from this Target.]

The Valencia Target had Alien vs. Predator: Extinction for the Xbox for 14.98. There was only one copy so I hid it just in case anyone here wants it.
