121008 ... 04.97 ... 00.00 ... Xbox HD-DVD drive

I just found one at my local sears, but it scanned at the price checker machine for $49.99... Do they sometime scan differently at the register or is my Sears just insane? (I would totally pay $5 for the HD-DVD drive just to say that I have the HD-DVD drive)

Or just write down games of interest and come back with a UPC sheet. This strategy is particularly helpful if you're unsure if the game has dropped to your magic price level. If you pass on a discounted game that an employee scans, it more than likely won't be there next time.


Believe me, the employees know the prices long before we do, so if they want something it'll disappear to the magical back room till it hits their magic price probably. I've rarely lost out on getting a cheaply priced game that wasn't yet down to my impulse buy price, even after getting it checked by the employees.

Most times it's an older person working in electronics anyway and unless I hear them say that 'their grandkid would like a cheap game' I just assume that the game will be there the next time.

If it isn't though, no big loss since I've managed to get so many deals since I joined CAG.

That's what the HD-DVD drive was coming up as at the one Sears around here that still had one in stock up till about a month ago. Then it finally disappeared.

Either they finally did the updates and it dropped to $5 and someone grabbed it or someone actually bought it at $50.

Nearly every clearance game I buy is met with surprise and envy. The person in charge of the markdowns may know, but in my experience, the employees who would actually buy the game don't appear to know. At my store, games seem to magically appear *after* they hit the magic price point.

You would think that, but more than once I've had an employee say to me "holy shit, is there another one of these over there?" after seeing the price ring up (I specifically remember it happening when I got the Rock Band bundle for $14.97 and when I got MGS4 for $19.97, so it's not even always for the best deals). So it seems that they're not all aware of it beforehand, and I'm sure that in those cases if I had walked out without actually buying the item, it would have been gone the next time I went back.

Lol, that is a deal compared to what the new price is online ($300 and up).

Thing is, by the time you pay for the double pack and hope it has two games that work for the promo, you're ending up paying $50 total, so you're only saving $10 in the long run(if you're talking about the 'trade 2, get MW2 for $20' deal).

Not really that good of a deal, if you ask me, however it certainly beats driving all around to 5-10 Blockbuster stores looking for the POG's and wasting more in gas than it's worth.

Only complaint is on my iphone, the white text is nearly impossible to read on the clearance list. If possible to change the white text to something else that would be amazing.

Why not just jot down the items you want out of the list prior to going to the store and just look for those? That's all I usually do.

I mentioned this a while back and it hasn't changed. The thread is useless on the iPhone because the default font color is being overridden to white. If it was left alone at it's regular greyish color it would work fine on the iPhone and would be translated automatically to black text.

Yes, you can view the non-iphone version, but it's annoying to have to do so for one thread on CAG, when everything else works perfectly. Plus it takes a lot longer to load in that format.

You know, instead of complaining about the color/size of a font, you could just do like a few of us do and write down(on actual paper) what you're looking for and just go from there.

Not all of us have iPhones(hell, I don't even have a damn cell phone) and most of us would prefer something we can read when we log onto this site from home as opposed to having to squint to see the grey text just to suit those with iPhones.

It was just a thought, not a personal attack on you and your family. You gave your opinion which is good and you can then move on. It's easier to have an up-to-date list at all times than writing things down before I go out. Like I said, it was a thought, I can deal with it.

Stopped by sears and picked up Spider man web of shadows for $9.99.

I don't see how changing the color of the text (there really isn't that much) from white to anything else would be such a problem. For those that don't know, the background on the iphone CAG is white, while regular text shows up black.

I third the iPhone complaint, but I think that complaint has to go to Cheapy and not this thread. Why not make the iPhone version of the page have a black background and white text, just like the full version, and then any custom colors would look fine. Plus there are other reasons to complain, such as not being able to send PMs via the iPhone version - I always have to change to the full size version in order to do that. Etc.
