Welcome to the Toys R Us clearance thread! Like all stores, Toys R Us also has clearance games-- and they often drop numberous times, such as going down to 19.98, 9.98, 5.00, and even as low as 3.00. There doesn't appear to be a set rhythm to when these drops occur, or how many of them will occur. Also, be aware that the games may not have their prices correctly marked-- generally, all TRUs will have the same pricing (there will always be exceptions) so do not let the price tag dissaude you from at least checking to see if it's at the price that it's been reported here.

Games, when possible, will have their SKU number posted. Please post any SKU numbers you have that aren't already in the list!

Also, some stores will be able to give you a price adjustment if your clearance game(s) drop-- if not, you can always try to return and rebuy the game(s).

Here are the latest drops-- special thanks to Prim4444! http://www.cheapassg...1&postcount=245

Good luck to you sir.

You must be a glutton for clearance punishment for managing two of these types of threads.

Yes.

Although, I will note that I do not mind maintaining this for the rest of my CAG life. But, if anyone ever wanted to take a crack at the TRU clearance thread, they are more than free to.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Not sure if I should be posting this as it was jaysapathy's decision to delete it, but here's the most recent of the OP from the other TRU thread (March 9, 2010). Should it be requested, I will remove it.

Well... for those in the market for a Zune.

The 8GB Pink will be dropping from $129.98 - $64.98 next week. I would have to assume that any and all Zunes should follow suit if they are in stock. I didn't see any of the accessories in the drops though.

A lot of stuff going to be marked down next week store wide. No games though.

Thanks for that giant list you recovered-- I think I'm just going to work backwards from the old OP up until the turn of the new year. The original OP's list is really outdated, and I'm not even sure what games from his list should be omitted for age.

Speaking of which-- going until I hit January 1st of this year for updating the OP. Is that enough? Do you think clearance from 2009 is still around? If anyone can make a compelling arguement stating that this would be true, I'll keep going back through 2009. If not, updating all of the stuff posted this year should suffice. When we get new updates, I'll start posting SKU numbers for the games (although it appears Prim is always on top of it)

If you'll notice, the OP right now is a carbon copy of the Target OP. I like this layout, but if you guys don't, let me know. I'm also pondering, since TRU seems to have less price points for clearance (Target is percentage base which yields in all sorts of prices while it seems like TRU just picks a number and sticks with it regardless of MSRP of the game) of simplying making a 5.00, 9.98, 19.98, and any other price point that comes up, and jamming all of the games under each section. Stuff would still be organized and alphabetized by system (with those little emoticons probably) but every 19.98 game would be under the 19.98 section, as opposed to seperating by system. If anyone thinks this is a good idea, we can try this out, or we can just stick with the Target template.

Let me know what you think!

Maybe old clearance games could be posted in the OP with the spoiler tag. Then it would still be there for anybody interested, but still out of the way.

If I'm understanding right, you're talking about a list like this:
$19.98
:360:
:ps3:
:wii:

$9.98
:360:
:ps3:

If so, I think it would be great. It's organized and I like the idea of seeing all games at a particular price tag in one spot.

Yep, that would be it right there. It's a little more work, but it could make things a bit more organized. I might try that out when we get a new list of drops.

Also, something I am considering: The main part of the thread would be "Latest Drops" and then I'd spoiler tag at least the last four-six months in the OP. This seems like an attractive solution because Target is so dynamic and fast moving that something like that could never work in that thread, but at the slower pace of TRU... that could be feasible. Plus it appears that Prim can provide very large lists of drops with the date.

And thanks for the list of drops, Prim!

Looks great FoS!

I wouldn't bother going back further than the drops that happened this year, but if you do the list I made does have the dates for each game of the previous (significant amount of games) drops which all happened in August. I think every game that had dropped within August. You may have noticed but in case you didn't that will save you from having to go through the thread. I think there will be very few games now left from those drops available - mostly just the stuff most people here would not buy.

Putting everything under each pricepoint sounds like a good idea.

The Xbox games listed, are they still on the shelves with the normal games usually?

I was in a TRU about a week ago but I only went through the clearance bin as I hadn't read a list of what was supposed to be dropped.

You mean 360? Well it depends. Right now my store has a bin of $9.98 & under games that usually isn't there. But the only 360 clearance game we have, Alone in the Dark, isn't in the bin because M rated games aren't supposed to be on the floor. But of course around xmas when all $19.99 games were on sale, even the M rated stuff came out of the cases. So I guess my answer is, even within a single store, ymmv.

Hey guys...I was contacted by TRU with the request that remove "Official" from the thread title name to prevent any potential confusion that this was actually an "Official" TRU thread.

Yes, it sounds silly to me but I told them we would comply. Carry on!

Really? They are going after you on that? Someone had too much time on their hands this morning. Maybe we should tag all the "official" threads as "CAG approved" or "Permanent" just for clarity.

Anyway, to FoS, yep your masochistic side is showing through here, but thanks for the effort. One suggestion though, perhaps it's just me, but the blue prices on the black background are a little tough to read. Perhaps the lighter blue used for the "Keep extaneous discussion..." disclaimer would be better. Just a minor quibble I had.

Oh, no, I wouldn't say it brings me joy or anything resembling joy. But, someone has to run it right now. Like I said, if anyone wants to run this... if it gives them joy... (:P) then they can feel free. Just keeping the gravy train running, and I want some things to add to my resume. Let's see them turn me down on the new position at work when I tell them I am the OP of two threads.

But I don't think running this thread will give me any issue. I added every update there was to add for 2010 in a couple of hours (some of which was me screwing around on the internet, not even working on the thread) This thread is about 5X easier and less time consuming than the Target thread.

And about the blue-- I figured it may have been too dark. I wanted to add something from the TRU color scheme, basically like a palatte swap of the Target thread. I'll switch to the lighter blue, guys!
