Guitar Hero Aerosmith bundle $3 for both the 360 and PS3
Guitar Hero World Tour Drums $30
Nyko Wireless Guitar $10
Guitar Hero III Guitar bundle $20
Guitar Hero World Tour? Guitar bundle $20

I went back to TRU and these were the shelf tags.


Did the prices end in .00 or .98/.99?

Hmmm, where's the original TRU clearance thread? Graveyard or somewhere waaaaaaaaaaaay back in deals?

Because I thought Dragon Quest V was noted as on clearance. A store near me suddenly had 4 copies of it that weren't there before, though marked 29.99 and behind the glass. I didn't have time to get them out and have them checked...

SPLASH!

Price mark-ups do occur sometimes for games, going from clearance to a nonclearance price.

I see thanks. I guess I'll give them a call.

Where do you guys look for the ones who score the ps3s? The only thing i see clearance is the $9.99 games and under bin. And they don't put consoles and games out so how are you guys grabbing those?

Went to 3 TRU's in my area, just to see if those insane GH prices were valid. All those games were long gone. So this may be case of just one store having unsold, weird stock, so the manager has free reign to mark them down however he likes.

As I understand it from prior markdowns, clearance is at the manager's discretion. Which is why one store has something for 75-90% off, and another down the road has it for 10% off.

If someone actually finds these items, I'd love to hear about it. That's an amazing score.

The manager doesn't actually doesn't set the clearance prices themselves, corporate sends lists. However, if it doesn't sell within a certain time, managers can mark it down further, which is what the red square sticker tags you see on beat up or open package products.

I don't think anyone here scored one, they just found out that they were clearanced in the system. 40 gb PS3's are long gone probably at 95% of TRUs.

TRU does have an online stock checker, but it only works for some items -- unfortunately, I have never seen a video game related product on their site that hasn't had the words "this item does not participate in the check store inventory feature" in its listing. I've never seen any kind of explanation for why they exclude games from it (makes no sense, really, as one would presume they would track all of their store inventory in the same way), but there you go.

I love the bizarre sense of agency in that phrasing, though -- as if the item itself has chosen not to "participate" in their system.

There's a new TRU leaflet by the registers containing $5 off $25 discount coupons for the weeks of 4/11 thru 4/24. They usually work on games from past experience. Something to look out for on your trips there.

My Current Lowball Sale is NOW CLOSED.  I lost so much sweat & tears. [cries]

:lol: I'm sorry for laughing but I can clearly picture some person doing that hahaha trying to get a pricecheck and the store being all he's stealing the boxes! Get em! Then some dude runs and tackles you and you hold your arm up with a list of TRU clearance markdowns and yell Noooooo El Hoardoooooo as El Hoardo walks over you arms full of games.

Lol damn you El Hoardo!!!

Well fortunately I was able to beat him to my TRU and picked up the last copy of Spyborgs; I'm 2 for 2 so far. Totally forgot to ask about ps3s or check GH stuff, but there was absolutely no one around the videogames dept, so probably wouldn't have happened anyway...

There are things Hoardos are allergic to, and those are games that are entertaining and don't actually produce any profit for them. If you give these items to them, they implode.

I seen it.

LMAO!! That may be true. The day the recent clearance hit, the only thing that was cleaned out of my nearest R' Us was the Street Fighter Anniversary. Everything else on that list was still there a week later.

This post is the only one about the 40 gb PS3. Sometimes people just post that they found these were clearanced, but it doesn't mean they definitely picked them up.

I guess you could try giving them the SKU # and see if they can check if any stores have it in stock, but I've never attempted that with TRU.

Anyone know how much they're giving for a DS Lite trade-in? The official trade-in website doesn't seem to give values for hardware unless I'm not looking in the right place.

I don't think they take hardware.
