I can see it now. Black Friday type lines outside the store at 8am but they don't open till 10am. Everybody rushes in and grabs all gaming items off the shelf, run to the register just to find out it's all retail price.
Then the sales people don't know what to do cause they never get mobbed at black friday to begin with. :)

Everyone reporting in have had mixed results. There's no evidence that there is any Sears sale/discounting tomorrow and if there was that it would be nationwide. I can practically guarantee it won't be anywhere near me cause I don't have that luck.

So stay the hell away from any Sears in Ohio. You're wasting your time.;)

Edit: The employees would have to be idiots (or broke) to not buy/hide any good clearance to begin with. Anybody in electronics should know that if stuff is 90% you'd be able to flip it for profit somewhere or atleast hook up family/friends. Everybody gets Xbox 360's for xmas, including the family dog!

If this sale/clearance was going to be universal for once, then it might likely go by the standard clearance schedule for markdowns. That being the first Friday of the month, which would actually be September 7th since August 24st is this Friday. So it could possibly be 2 weeks from now for all we know.

Of course, knowing my luck they will drop everything tomorrow in the afternoon or evening sometime and I'll miss it completely.:roll: That's what happened when the did a blowout on most of the remaining older games that were clearanced. They put up a 75-80% off clearance sign on the dump bin and then one of the local game store owners and his one buddy cleaned them the Fuck out.:roll:

You pre buyers are the ones who almost screwed me over with best buy sale recently. How about we take our chances tomorrow by walking in and seeing if there is a sale? I mean black friday is around the corner..

No. These deals are strictly in store only, meaning you gotta go in and grab them and beat any crowds to get them.

Yeah. I predict there's gonna be a lot of people whose will skip the sale tomorrow morning because of the highly YMMV nature of it, only to find out that their stores did apply the discounts and everything sold out by noon.

Then we get to read them bitching about resellers/hoarders/flippers till Doomsday(or at least till a mod cleans it up). I'll be sitting here getting a lot of use out of THIS smiley(:roll:), that's for sure.;)

Funny how all it takes is ONE guy with a picture of his receipt to get everyone worked up like its the Best Buy Blowout 2.0 thread. People have been getting extremely YMMV 50-75% off games for months now, but as soon as consoles enter the picture everyone is ready to camp out. Hope you guys aren't spending too much on gas to get to Sears tomorrow, or have really competent store managers.

Now, if this "nationwide clearance" was supposed to happen on 09/07 to follow the first Friday of the month pattern, or if was still pre-2011 Sears, it might be something to get excited over.

Sales like this are why I'm glad that the play area in the mall is right outside of Sears. Dragging my kids over just to run in and check sucks, but when they get to play for a bit it's not so bad. I'll definitely be heading over tomorrow because who knows? The deals some people are reporting are INSANE and definitely enough for me to round up the kids.

forgot to mention, I did ask the employee if they were closing down and he said "no, we're just switching things up trying to focus more on other electronics while getting rid of most our video game stuff. We're only going to really focus on just like new releases"

The employee I talked to yesterday said they were going to be selling more PCs instead.

:applause:I used to love getting shit at 90% off and having the employees jaws just drop when every game I'd pick out of the case would ring up like $1-5. They wouldn't have been so shocked though if they did their job and marked the stuff when the markdowns came down.

But if they did that then I'd have had to buy stuff at 40-50% off more than likely.:-#

That's what I was thinking when I didn't pay attention to the touch screen PC that Kmart started selling a few years ago. It disappeared from the 1-2 stores here that had one on display without so much as even a mention on CAG of something like that hitting clearance.

I gotta wonder if they maybe stashed them in the back room and they're back there covered in dust. Now that would be a clearance score for the ages if you could get a $500-600 PC system for $50-60.;)

Which is probably why they are currently getting rid of alot of video game related stuff. They also were messing with plantagrams when I was there. My local one is either closing or getting ready for a change(and closing later lol)

You wouldn't find a clearance deal like that even if the world was about to end and it was black friday and xmas combined into one.

Well, the lady I spoke to on the phone today said she had ONE Xbox 360 250GB console back in the clearance area, and it was just $40. I don't know what store that was though because Sears' stupid phone system could have transferred me to any store in the U.S. When I got to my store, they had a bunch of stock all at regular price.

I have to think the prices are coming down. Why they're dropping at different times for different places, I don't know.

Never say never. So far I've found a $50 PS2, a $15 PSone/LCD combo, shitloads of pennied game guides and so many other clearance deals since joining CAG. I also got a 60gb PS3(albeit opened and without a controller) for $40. So it can happen to get a good deal.;)

BEFORE I joined CAG I would routinely check the local Kmart stores for clearanced games and picked up tons of stuff there too.:razz:

So never say never.:booty:

Id gladly pay for anyone to pick me up some cheap clearance games. When at the store send me a list and well work a trade. I owe anyone who would do this alot.
