Decided to run by my local Sears clearance this evening and I'm glad I did.

Picked up the following:
2 - White Nunchuks (old packaging) - 4.97 each
2 - White Classic Controller Pro (old packaging) - 4.97 each
1 - PSP Go Traveler Case - 4.97
1 - PSP Go In-Ear Headset - 2.97
2 - Pink Nintendo DS Mini Folio - .97 each
1 - Wii Deluxe Game Traveler - 9.97

The PSP go stuff goes well with the PSP Go I picked up from Gamestop a week or so ago, and I'm always looking for cheap 1st party Wii stuff. The bag will be nice to put all of the Wii Motes and random accessories in.

I typically never find anything at Sears, but tonight was refreshing. I think it's mostly because none of the stuff was even marked down. I had to get price-checks on everything. I might go back tomorrow and see if I can find any other steals....

I only found today was one black nunchuk for $4.97. Had a manager special take 75% already reduced clearance. So they took 75% off of the $4.97. Does wii accessories work on the new wii u?
I also saw the deluxe game traveler for $19.97, but never had a price check.

They sure do!
Any wii u game with concurrent multiplayer requires wiimotes and possibly nunchucks.

Sears loves to clearance stuff just because new packaging becomes available.


The new packaging usually comes with a new UPC as well. The computers see two different product numbers with two different descriptions (ex. Halo 3 vs Halo 3 GH) so when the sales department runs a report for older merchandise that isn't moving, it won't count the "greatest/platinum hits" versions towards the original version sales. The same thing happens with hardware and accessories. New packaging/modelling often equates to new UPCs.

This reminds me of a story that occurred when I was ordering groceries for a small store. Low on Mars candy bars, I kept including it with my candy orders. I couldn't figure why (a) I never received any Mars bars and (b) why my candy supplier kept shipping me Snickers Almond bars that I never ordered. After a few weeks it finally occurred to me to compare the UPC codes and found that they were the same on both products. It turns out that M&M/Mars had renamed/repackaged the Mars candy bar. The worst part was having to explain to my boss why there so many damn Snickers bars in the stock room!

Just found the flame red 3ds at my local store. Came up to 80.xx total with NY tax. I had looked for quite some time and they didn't have it in the case. They had the aqua blue price/barcode on it and made them scan the UPC.

Gf bought it for my birthday so I am very happy!

I'm thinking about returning the new PS Vita memory card I got. Anyone want it for $13 (PayPal) shipped? I'd do 12.50 Amazon credit instead since that wouldn't have a transfer fee charged.

What size?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I just scored a Flame Red 3DS at the Pittsburgh Mills Sears for $59.99+tax. Had almost $10 in SYWR points so it was a no brainer. They had at least one left so if any Pittsburgh CAG's are looking for one you should get out there now. They have them behind the counter in the electronics section. It wouldn't surprise me if one of the employees picks it up though.

:ps3: Move Bundle with Sports Champions and Deadmund's Quest, $14.97

I had the free $5 in points posted yesterday, so this made it $9.97, there should be some hanging around at your locals.

Oh, and they have a sale on the Skylanders Kits (The original 2011 release, not Giants) for $39.99. There is a friends and family night this coming Sunday, I forgot to see if they had any extra percent off games. The original Skylanders sets are getting more rare in stores, so not a horrible deal if you missed out before.

Went in looking for the Move Bundle. Gone. But I got a PS3 bluetooth thing for $10, so not a total waste.

I know my local Sears has quite a few of the move bundles in the cabinet. I might swing by and take a look. I wonder if the single pack navigation controllers might be any cheaper...

Success! Got a Move bundle for $14.99. The electronics manager didn't believe me when I said I heard it was on clearance, something I'm sure most of us Sears regulars have experienced many times, but sure enough it rang up at the reported price.

My Sears only has a pile of shit left on clearance. At this point the folks at my Sears are used to me coming in and buying stuff super cheap so they don't even bat an eye when they see the prices. It's a real shame that the clearance has disappeared after I've gone and trained them to stop being so annoying.

No more move bundles. Some el hoardo must have cleaned them out because they easily had 12 of them 2 weeks ago.

I ended up getting the following.
2 - Xbox 360 Quick Charge Tower Kits for 4.97 each.
1 - Max Payne 3 on PS3 for 9.97 (Clerk said price wasn't supposed to drop until tomorrow trying to get me to avoid the price check. I think he wanted it for himself. I persisted and got it anyway)
1 - ps3 blue tooth headset for 9.97.

I also noticed the psp go traveler kits dropped to $2, and the headsets to .97. Anyone know how receptive Sears is to return/rebuy on clearance items? I bought 2 of each at higher prices a couple of weeks ago and wouldnt mind getting $10 back...

Just scored 2 move bundles. For $14.97 each, why not. I'll probably trade in the games and the second eye if I can.

I too am curious about clearance price matching. I bought a set of speakers two weeks ago for $124 (originally $249). I figured they might get cheaper but only by $20 or so. There were two sets left after i bought mine. I went in today and they were $61. I was mad!
I bought another set thinking if nothing else, i can print out the receipt from two weeks ago and return this set i just bought.
Very nice speakers nonetheless!

I went to Eastern Hills today. There was a Move bundle marked $49.97 and a bluetooth marked $24.97. I grabbed them and walked towards the price checker which is all of 20 feet away. Both electronics guys jumped at me like i was running off with them. "We can ring you up here."
"I am just price checking these items" because heaven forbid i ask you assholes for help, i thought to myself but did not say.
Came up $15 and $10.
I walked back to the guys, "i am ready to check out." One dude walked away, other dude seemed reluctant, but did walk me towards a cashwrap.
He thought the stickered price was a great deal. "Those are great prices, you buying for yourself or to resell?"
I ignored him.
Then he actually rang them up. "Omg, i wish i knew these were this cheap, i gotta check everything over there ( clearance area). You getting to resell?"
Again i ignored him.
"You want protection on these or are you only going to resell them?"
No lie, he asked me four times if i were reselling them. Like i need to explain why i am purchasing anything.
Pissed me right the Fuck off. He had a mini "the art of war" book on the register. I wanted to shove it up his ass.
