Hi guys, not sure if this has been mentioned or not, but SCAN EVERYTHING.

I went to my local store and saw things with October tags that were much higher than what was posted here. Needless to say I was rather disappointed, so I figured I'd scan something for the hell of it. Found Mario Sports Mix with "Reduced: Oct 39.97". Scanned it:

$9.97

Scan your stuff people.


This game still scans at 39.97 at all the stores I checked. I was hoping it would be 9.97, but looks like not all stores have processed the latest drops.

All the stores in Indy have been shit. The last good Sears find I had was the SOCOM bluetooth headset for $16. I did find Pokemon Platnium and the 4th Professor Layton for $20.

I was pretty happy with the find at my local Sears. This was YESTERDAY. It didn't even look like they had been touched.

As others have stated, the prices on the games were completely wrong, and I had to have an associate scan them. He thought I was crazy until the prices came up and then went through all the phases "How did he know more than me?"
Of course, he became incredibly disenheartened as I took these games.

Here's what I bought

Super Smash Brothers Brawl, Wii - 9.97
Zelda Skyward Sword, Wii - 29.97
Mario Sports Mix, Wii - 9.97
Star Fox 64 3DS, 3DS - 9.99 x2
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, PS3 - 9.97
Halo Reach, 360 - 9.97
Modern Warfare 3, Wii - 9.97 x2 (got an extra copy for my bro)

Portal 2, for both 360 and PS3 was 9.97 each. I would remind you that Gamestop is currently taking 50% bonus credit on it, giving it a TIV of $19.50. I plan on going back and picking up a few copies if they are still there.
Halo Reach is also in the %50 TIV and is currently getting 25.50

I had him scan other prices. Pokemon Rumble Blast was still full price, as were all the Lego games (Pirates, Star Wars, etc. for all systems) Skyrim, Borderlands 2, Most Mario games, all new 3DS games, all Vita games (broke my heart). Those games were STILL FULL PRICE. Definetly YMMV!

The PS3 Move Bundle was not $25, or even $50, but firm at full price, $99 (REALLY disenheartening), I was hoping for that to be my biggest score.


As a noob, this is really my first big buy from CAG, and i'm very pleased.
I've got an extra copy of Star Fox i'm willing to trade (would love a copy of ANY pokemon game someone picked up from this deal :) ), but am interested in anything. PM if interested.


That's not all though.
After paying, I got a bunch of coupons. One was a $5 off any $50 purchase instore (excludes gaming HARDWARE). I'm assuming it still works for video games. The other was a $5 off any $50 electronics purchase (2 cannot be combined). I plan on going back and getting 2 more $50 purchases whilst able. I would recommend you guys jump on this if you find something worthy.

Nice find, especially for SSBB. The fact that the game was still there for five days after the drop at that store means you probably don't have much competition for the newest drops, even moreso if your store doesn't seem to update the prices on time.

The PS3 Move Bundle was not $25, or even $50, but firm at full price, $99 (REALLY disenheartening), I was hoping for that to be my biggest score.

While I don't think the dual game Move bundle is on clearance yet, keep your eye out for the single game Sports Champions bundle, last time I checked it was down to $59.97 in September.

Unfortunately most of those coupons exclude clearance, though they are good for any newer, non-clearanced games you may find.

i went to my local Sears in Hurst, Northeast Mall, and found that they only had xbox 360 games on clearance , not only that but they are offering an additional 20% off on certain games with the green stickers. I ended up buying gears of war 3, and portal 2 for 7.97 each and Deus Ex , Dance Central, and Guitar Hero 5 for 3.99 each

Some in clearance bins, some on the rack, some in the glass cases. The clearance is so wide spread that it seems to apply to 90% of the games (and quite a bit of the accessories) that not every store has moved everything to clearance bins.

I was sitting on a 360 slim 250 GB hard drive for around $75 and some PSP's for around $75 at that Sears, they were all gone before the next drop though. I knew I should have bit. I've found good things in the past at that Sears though like $20 DualShock 3's.

I can't help but to see that and think overpriced. Especially when Best Buy had it for $15. I know..... I know...... time machine and stuff, lol

Imagine the thoughts going through my head when I got a $15 off $50 purchase. I'd, just, spent more than that and was thinking crazy stuff...

The fine print of....not valid on clearance... relaxed my nerves.:)

Edit: Wait. $15 in ponts for spending $50, but I have the $5 off $50, too.

Did those 250gb hard drives drop? I saw two of them at my store but they were both still marked $75.

Wanted:
Halo 3 headset that came with Halo 3 edition Xbox 360

For those in Cincinnati the Tri County Sears has the best selection locally. Prices rang up cheaper than marked on everything I picked up. Got Dead Space 2, MK, WWE All Stars for $9.97 each for the 360.

Too bad those SYWR points coupons rarely work. I think the only coupons that work on my end are the 'Update your email and get $XX in points'

Actually if you have access to a Fry's Electronics near you, Skyward Sword is currently $19.99, not much different than the $15 Best Buy price. Of course it's in-store only, that botches up most of east coast, but great for CA residents.

I think he may have saw my post a couple pages back. I got a few Dual Game PS Move bundles for $25. This was only because the store I went to had a 75% off clearance games extra sale. So all the 10$ games were 2.50. All the 30$ games were $7.50 etc.

The dual bundles were 25$ down from 99.99. Oddly the dual bundle isnt even on clearance. It just happened to be in the 75% sale bin so it got included in the sale.

Mine had a clearance up to the manager, it seems, but I got 2 of those for $30 each a few months ago. Haven't seen any of them anywhere since. On a related note, there were some Xbox harddrives for $30 at my Kmart, but they were the 60 GB ones. After getting a 250 from Sears for the same price, I found it funny to see that.

Good finds. The Manchester, CT Sears didn't have anything marked clearance and there was no employee in site for me to bother them scanning things. The game selection did look smaller, but everytime I went there there were no games on clearance. Same when I've been to the Meriden, CT ones. I think the Sears in CT don't mark anything on clearance and It's a bummer. However, the KMart ones seem to clearance games here and there.

As long as the games are actually out in the open and you don't have to wait for an employee to get them out of a case, take them to the scanner and check them yourself. That's how I've found MANY deals before.

In albuquerque, nm at the sears in cottonwood mall, I managed to pick up

Deus Ex Human Revolution X360 for 4.97 (sticker had 14.97)
Steel Diver 3DS for 4.97 (sticker had 9.97)
Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D for 9.97 (sticker had 29.97)

All of them had different prices on them too and all rang up differently at the register.

All in all, happy camper with my findings. Wish I could have found more!

Went to a Sears I haven't been to before. They had Xbox Portal 2, but not the PS3 version. Saw a Shadow of the Colossus NEW:ps2: $14.9x. Good thing it isn't rare/valuable(checked eBay after I left) because I left it.

Street Fighter IV 3DS($9.99). No 3ds, yet, but I tend to buy stuff before I get a system I'm interested in.

Well, at some point, my Sears decided to start carrying games again. And from the looks of it, it had been scavenged HARD. There were a bunch of empty slots in the game case, and the clearance bin was kind of a mess from how much it'd been sifted through. Can't say I blame the lucky guys who went through it- I just wish I'd known the place had picked games back up sooner. :cry:

That said, I did pick up:
:ps3: Lost Planet 2- $4.97
:360: Darksiders- $9.97
:wii: Mario Super Sluggers- $9.97

I was in kind of a hurry to get out of there, so I didn't notice until after I got back home that Super Sluggers wasn't Sports Mix. :lol:

That's if your store has scanners available. At our Sears, the nearest scanner is in the children's clothing department (in other words: far away) and the electronics section is enclosed in plexiglass walls; any attempts to remove games will set off the alarm. Toys R Us here used to be the same way until the last year or so.

That sounds like the one mall out in NJ where I picked up either Loco Roco 2 or Patapon for PSP really cheap a few years ago. I think it was actually like $.29 a copy at the time.:lol:

But here the electronics is wide open and they have multiple price scanners, so I have actually hauled 3-10 games at a clip before from there to the scanners and back again.

Speaking of Patapon, I just now noticed that the Patapon I got for $.97 cents doesn't have the game, but instead it has a downloadable voucher in it. Well, it does according to what it says on the case. I haven't opened it yet. I've never seen that before. Going through all the trouble of making a case, manual, then paying for shipping, and selling it to a retailer, and they only have a voucher for it. I don't really care, but this just seems retarded. Anybody know why they did that?
