Um, I am a girl, I did not speak to the person but its certainly not every day you see someone walking around the mall in a blue wig with very long ponytails. I didn't even think anyone in my area knew about that stuff.


Not as obscure but a bit stranger... I actually saw someone in a superman costume riding a unicycle in the McKinley parking lot sometime last month.

Oh... man. Saw the worse thing ever. My most stocked store, decimated. The game case barely has games, and the enormous clearance section was shrunk to one small endcap. I can't figure out what the hell happened. They're doing an additional 25% off, but given the prices, I don't think that killed all of that clearance (and not to mention the full price games that just disappeared)


Ugh that SUCKS. I feel for you

We've got a homeless Spider-Man who poses on street corners for money.

Wow, that is really strange, something about our area maybe...Our area really needs an anime convention, I'd go to it even at my age, although most people who want to go to a convention just travel to one of the big ones.

Sounds like they had a secret fire sale. Mine had a 99 cent bin wiped out in one day. I was able to grab Gran Turismo 5 PS3 for 99 cents.

I used to feel the same way until I realized how much money I was spending in gas just to scope out any possible deals. It cancels out any discount you get from the clearance. It's easy to get excited when you see a game with a 1.97 price tag on it, but your brain never actually calculates that it cost you 21.97 to finally get it at that price.

It gets to the point where, if you aren't already at the mall, you're better off just biting the bullet and paying the $15-20 for it on Amazon.

Might head back today since my Kids seem to be up early from their naps... Haven't been in a while but my store never really did anything cool. Of course I could have just missed it if they did since many of the games seem to have disappeared.

I'm tempted to hit the further store from me soon, since they're the only one with any actual stock left after that fucking local store owner and his buddy cleared out my closest one.:bomb:

I did that for a pspgo. Thankfully though there is a Sears literally 5 minutes walking distance from my place.

My Sears was pretty picked through. I did find a Sony 2GB M2 Memory Card for $0.97 though.

Apparently my local Sears had one of those game blowouts since the last time I was there. The clearance area had half the space it used to have and I saw DJ Hero 2 Wii and Sports Champions PS3 both tagged for $1.99 with June stickers (they rung up $7.97 and had to be manually adjusted) so I am guessing a lot of other games were also marked down to that price.

Checked a local Sears and they pretty much stripped all the <$10 items. I have a feeling it was an employee, but I didn't bother looking harder. All those drops I've been eyeing, gone...

I pay $20 a month for my phone bill. Sign up through me and we both get $25 off our bills! That's a free month! PM me for more info if you're curious.

Yeah it's very likely the employees will grab all the good stuff and leave the scraps during these secret fire sales.

Anyone been to Sears today? Since there was no price drop last week I was thinking it might happen today.

Found a few PS2 titles (Guitar Hero: Van Halen, Band Hero and some Hanna Montana game) for 97 cents this week. They have no trade-in value, so I didn't buy them. All other games still had June stickers on them.

Friends and Family on Sunday.

Dude in electronics told me that my store is eventually going to phase out all games and consoles at my store. He hadn't received the e-mail from Corporate yet, but he thinks it's coming soon and the drops will start happening then.

I thought my store would be spared from the phase-out, but apparently this won't be the case.

No new drops at my store. I checked a number of games, all rang up at June's prices.

FYI, friends and family excludes video games (and everything else) this time around. It's solely on TV's 46" and larger and home audio systems.

    WHAT THE CUSS!?!

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 15 July 2012 - 12:33 PM

Picked up a USB cable for the PS3 for $2.97. No good price drops on anything else. Saw Golden Sun for $9.97, but I already have 5 of them from when I got them for $5, so no go there. I would VERY MUCH LIKE for the 50% off deal to COME TO MY STUPID SEARS RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!


Also picked up the USB cable at a non-local Sears for $2.97. Passed on a Move charger base for $5.97 (since I don't have/want the Move). Otherwise, the store was almost bare of gaming anything. Sad to see.

The July drops finally hit at my store. Nothing worth noting, though. Everything I checked was just $1-5 cheaper.

None of the games were marked with July stickers but all games that end in .97 were 25% off.

Dropped by my locals sears to buy some photo albums for the wife so I checked on the games section. It's now 75% on all clearanced games. There was only one cart of games left to pick through. Most of the titles are shovelware, but some, like deBlob 2 for Wii can be had for $3 bucks or so. Picked up

:ps3: WWE All stars
:ps3: Red Faction: Armageddon
:ds: Wario Ware DIY

all for $8.95 total! Too bad Sears is getting out of this business, I will surely miss this type of haul!

The main reason why hauls like that exist is because they are getting out of the business. If they were successful at selling games, they'd be going for higher prices.

Just to reiterate, 14-day price match (protection) guarantee, 30-day window to return/rebuy, 110% price match vs. competitors that have the game in stock or orderable (BBY deals of the day count).

My store also has the unannounced 25% off clearance games going on. So far the only gems I'm seeing are all of my pokemon games are ~$18 each. Black, Heart Gold, Platinum, et cetera.
