If Metro 2033 for PC was $30 I'd be all over it... :-(

I too also wanted to give a special thanks for this sale and the hard work your doing shc-gamer & co. The kmart i went to had 2 people back in electronics, the first guy was like if its not in the ad, its not on sale (as the sticker said $59.99) and i said to the other nice girl there that there was a blog posting about it and if she could just check the price for me, and she did, and had a moment pause before saying that its $29.99 for FF13. I said then i will take it. The other guy just walked away grumbling about how did i know it was on sale if its not in the ad?

Made me smile to walk past him and having saved a few $$

If this keeps up, i may just be spending more at kmart then i do at amazon or best buy (and BB i only hit if i got a gc or rz cert).

Grabbed my copy of FF13 at The Belleville,Il Store wasn't marked but rang up proper. Give this guy some credit he's quick to respond and is singlehandedly trying to reanimate the corpse of K-Mart Frankenstyle!



I'll be on board for more of your deals fa sho

I understand and apologize for this experience. It was never my intention that you would have to go through this.

It's up to you, but please provide the store number so I can have this issue addressed.


Here is the info for anyone else going to this location for the sale. I called them and they told me they no longer have FFXIII and hung up on me. So i doubt i will be getting it locally at kmart now.

Kmart
1001 Hertel Avenue
Buffalo, NY 14216
Phone Number:
(716) 875-5692

I am still trying on the website with no luck. I hope they add more while i am around. I was going to buy MW2 but figured i hold off for FFXIII. I was tempted on Metro 2033 but the reviews i read really make this game an avoid for me. I hope FFXIII goes back instock for us all.

Best Buy needs to wake up & get some buyers like these 2 guys. Sitting on MSRP for week after week makes people stop looking at your ads on a weekly basis. Loving the grass roots approach you're taking here on CAG. I hope other B&M retailers wake up & realize that they need to think outside the box for advertising their wares like you 2. As much as I love Amazon, we need the B&M's to kick them in the nuts sometimes. :D

SHC any idea if and when Metro 2033 will be listed at $29.99 on the website rather than $59.99?

It looks like Metro 2033 is loaded behind the cart. It shows as 59.99 but when you add it to the cart, you should see a $30 reduction to net it to $29.99. that is what the order should ring up as.

If there is a kind soul out there that could help us out; we are trying to research this issue if possible in greater detail. My online team has asked me these questions:

1. Did they push the paypal button on the shopping cart (before entering shipping address) or after the shipping address on the billing page?
2. Were they going through checkout as a guest shopper or do they have a kmart.com account?
3. Have they recently changed their source of funding (credit card or checking account) with PayPal?
4. What browser are they using?
5. Are they trying to buy anything else or just the game?


I finally had success with FF13 PS3 getting into my cart, but once I try to checkout by using the Paypal button on the shopping cart, it would update and say that the title is no longer available for shipping. I tried this as a guest and logged in with my email. I tried this in the latest versions of both Firefox and IE. And no, my payment methods haven't changed. Just trying to buy the game for now, since I figured the discounted shipping didn't apply to other items.

I also only tried to buy FF13, it's possible other games will allow you to purchase them, and so forth. But I never got past the shopping cart screen.

I'm not one of the guys that received a denial e-mail, however, I ordered around 12:30pm EST and received confirmation via Kmart/Paypal, the funds have come out of Paypal, but the order is showing on Paypal as still being processed, so it is in limbo atm.

1. Before entering address
2. Guest shopper
3. No
4. Firefox
5. Just FFXIII

Went to my local K-mart with the gf and picked up a copy of FFXIII for her.
The game was listed as $59.99 in the glass cases, but rang up $29.99 to the cashier's surprise.

With tax, it came to $32.07 or something like that.
Thanks SHC, really appreciate it.

1. Didn't use paypal.
2. I was a guest.
3.Don't use paypal, but same CC.
4. Chrome,FF, and Opera. Opera was the only one that worked.
5. Just the game.

I'm just answering these so maybe it'll help you narrow down how to solve it, since I successfully ordered.

Just got back from the local K-Mart. Picked up FFXIII, and Metro 2033. Besides having to literally hunt down an employee to open the case the entire shopping process was positive. Will gladly do it again if the deals continue.

If you could do the same for the Big K in Waterloo, IA, that would be fantastic. They're notorious for pricing errors; I used to work there.

Yes - Waterloo, IA has confirmed that they are downloaded and signed. Sorry for the delay in response, we are manually confirming with store management that they have executed accordingly. Thanks for your patience.

To all, I know this wasn't perfect. In many cases, horrible. But I am also pleased that many of you had success and understand what we are trying to do here.

Tomorrow morning I will provide a recap on where we stand from an inventory and online standpoint.

Hit the Beaverton, OR store during lunch; one person was in the electronics department but left at some point while I was checking the games case. No sale signs up anywhere, I also did not see any copies of :360: MW2 in the case which was my main goal (a big empty spot between Bad Company 2 and Darksiders was glaring at me). Since it was lunch and the department was empty, I bailed. May go after work and actually ask for it and Bayonetta and hope it rings up right.

Thanks! Just dropped them a line.


While you're at it, you may want to e-mail/contact the other Hawaii stores and let them know about the sale items. Past experiences involving different prices on the same items at different stores tell me that they may not know about the sales yet, and I'd hate to see someone drive 30 minutes to 1 hour to get turned down. Here are the 7 locations listed in the web site's store locater:

1. Kmart
4561 SALT LAKE BLVD, HONOLULU, HI
Tel: 808-486-6118

2. Kmart
500 NIMITZ HWY, HONOLULU, HI
Tel: 808-528-2280

3. Kmart
94 - 825 LUMIAINA STREET, WAIPAHU, HI
Tel: 808-676-8886

4. Kmart
500 KAMOKILA BOULEVARD, KAPOLEI, HI
Tel: 808-674-9355

5. Kmart
424 DAIRY ROAD, KAHULUI, HI
Tel: 808-871-8553

6. Kmart
4303 NAWILIWILI ROAD, LIHUE, HI
Tel: 808-245-7742

7. Kmart
74-5456 KAMAKA'EHA AVE, KAILUA-KONA, HI
Tel: 808-326-2331

Personally, 1. and 2. are the stores that I'll try to visit, though 4. usually gets the promotions right. 6. and 7. are the only stores on their respective islands, so they would probably be worth notifying for customers in those areas.

When I was there at 8am they only had two copies after mine, good luck with that ;)

I was there at 8:15. You were probably helped by the person who was "out getting coffee" when I arrived.

As of 1:34, they haven't called me to let me know what's up after asking to take down my name and number.


You should call them, I bet the problem is fixed, but they forgot to call you.

CAG community,
To add to Josh's sign out, thank you for the feedback, patience, and support. We love to see so many of you as passionate about games (and great deals) as we are. We plan on continuing to bring some unbeatable offers to you through future promotions. Despite the "opportunities" we are facing with the current promotion, we are ecstatic that we have this many interested customers helping (or at least trying to help) us grow our gaming business. All of the feedback and posts will definitely help us smooth out the rough edges going forward. We will sign on again tomorrow, hopefully, with further progress. Have a good evening - we will be back in touch soon.

Sincerely,
Doug G.

If any games show oos on-line just use your iphone to place the order..
Iphone will bypass the darn pop-up that let's you know the game is oos or the infamous "Total Quantity of the item present in Cart exceeds maximum quantity {0} allowed to be purchased in one Order"..

your order will go thru just fine,you'll get email confirmation in seconds... having the game shippped is a dif matter tho

just got it at best buy by price matching an image of the blog. The girl at the counter originally told me that this wasn't good until May 4...I had to tell her it was May 4. She called what I assume was a manager type and 10 minutes later I'm walking out with FFXIII for 30 clams + tax.

Bought the only copy of Bayonetta for 360 at the Fairhaven MA Kmart. When I called the lady was so nice she told me she would hold it because it was the only one. This is great if it keeps going because I bought most of my games from Gamecrazy and will be looking for a new spot that isn't Gamestop to shop at.
