Just checked google shopping, my Sears still has stuff in stock. No price drops yet.

Google shopping may take a day or two to update, going to check tonight to see if there was anything else worth mentioning.

i got one like 5 years or maybe 7 years back for FREE using mcdonald monopoly coupons .... I maybe used it 3 times and now it sits in my basement ...

i think i paid around 200 or 300 for it


DVD recorders won't let you do anything with commercial tapes due to macrovision which makes them effectively useless. Most people have a DVR that came with their TV subscription for this purpose.

I have a panasonic DVD recorder that I got from my uncle for free which is really awesome since I don't have a cable service that comes with a DVR. The only problem is finding an actual disc that it will record on. I did find the disc, but when I found the proper DVD ram disc it cost $6, so I just bought one disc and use it over and over again. Much better than using tape though.

I saw a commercial once on a Japanese TV program that I was watching for a DVD recorder with a program guide and the recorder had a hard drive about the size of a regular VHS tape that you could take out and put back in just like a regular VHS tape, now that would be awesome to have!

Went to my Sears last week and they went from having 3 full glass cases of games to 1 case of games on the end of an aisle. There are a few gaming peripherals down the aisle behind the games, but wow, they got rid of most of the gaming section. Sears just lost a lot of my business as I only need televisions, outdoor equipment, or appliances every few years, if that. I hardly buy their clothes, either.

Mine's been like that for a few months, maybe the summer or so. The funny thing is that they "got rid of the games" that disappeared yet they kept showing up on Google Shopping. Then a couple weeks ago I went and tons of them showed up on the clearance rack after months of not being out. So they didn't put those games out, which meant no one could buy them, which meant that they sat there and aged, which meant I bought up a shitload of games for next to nothing. Maybe it will happen to you too.

Wow, that will be awesome if it happens at my store.

Just an FYI for SYWR members, I got an email for a free $5 in points for this weekend, expires on Monday, December 3rd. Check your emails or accounts to see if you got it too.

Also I think this coming Sunday is Friends and Family Night, which is an extra 5% off video games (not hardware though), check your local to see if it would be worth it.

Today they are doing 10,000 points which equates to $10 sears cash on $50 purchase redeemable on the 2nd and 3rd I believe. Here's the catch. It doesn't go through on clearance. Why the hell am I posting this? Because I was able to get them to deduct $10 automatically on that transaction . Spending $200? Of course your gonna do 4 separate transactions. This is YMMV but definitely worth trying.

Is this 10,000 points sears only or sears/kmart for SYWR members?

I'm not sure. Since they are linked I would guess both.

I got it too! Which is weird cause I signed up to SYWR but never fully activated it yet. Still got it. And yeah, Friends and Family Night is this upcoming Sunday. I started working there not too long ago and found out they are doing it again this Sunday. Not looking forward to it. Not sure if how much percentage off it is. I think last time was 10%? Though not sure if it changes. I can try and find out tonight.

I don't know if it's already been mentioned, but I saw Battlefield 3 for the PS3 and Xbox360 for $10 each today. I already have enough shooter games, so I passed.

With Google Shopping, it only lists if the games are in stock not the crazy clearance prices right?

I just picked up LoZ: Skyward Sword for $9.97. I think I saw that someone else got it for that price too so it looks like this is a company wide discount.

Often times it will show the awesome crazy price, if your local sears has that price. YMMV though.

I'm assuming these are all the drops for December, as my sheets did not show up anything else that dropped. Sad to say it, but I think my Sears clearance days are close to over, as now the second of my three stores is down to the dreaded single glass case scenario. I still have hope for some items (like Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board, Skylanders Portal sets, Super Paper Mario) being clearanced eventually, but besides the Wii remotes and nunchucks, I haven't seen anything new enter the cycle in some time.

Also, for those who are wondering about Google shopping, a store will continue to update the most current pricing as long as they have at least 'In Stock' or 'Limited Stock' tagged for that title. If it is 'Out of Stock', it will show the last known price it was sold / transferred out of the system for that particular store. One of my stores has been out of stock of Skyward Sword for some time, but still has it listed as 'Limited Stock', so I was able to see the new $9.97 pricing.

Exactly what I thought, clearance days are over at sears.

Stopped in tonight to check out the clearance. The bin on the end cap had been recently taken down and nothing had yet been put in it's place. I found a few crappy shovelware titles sitting randomly on bottom shelves in various places, but the prices weren't that great. PS2 "Sing It" was $1.97, there was some DS game that was $30 and a few others.

Either I just missed a nice sale or the stuff was boxed up and shipped out. There is another Sears nearby that is closing, maybe they shipped them all there.

If you have a Play N Trade, they got the most TIV for Zelda, at 22 dollars. Gamestop was 14 and best buy was allegedly 6 dollars (I think the guy was just lazy to want to do a trade in, tried asking if I could find a second opinion but no one was able to help). If anyone can verify this let me know what you been told. Never mind used the online checker, that's pretty low. I never do trade in's anyways, and this is a good example as to why.

I might try that tactic at BB or GS sometime...All this time I've been accepting low TiV's, and I should have at least asked for a second opinion!

I rather trade a game through here with someone that wants it before I even trade it in, just thought it was interesting to me that Play N Trade was giving 22 dollars for the game while others gave so little. The online checker on bestbuy.com is as accurate as you can get.

You should buy all those Zelda's. amazon trade in for Skyward Sword is $19. Limit of two there but you can get almost double.

Typically shop sears clearance tools and tvs, came across a nintendo 3ds at $49, would it be worth picking up at that price?
