Wtf, I can't believe they did that :bomb: Was there some out of control clearance stealing for them to take that kind of measure? That is ridiculous.


Thieves love our clearance end-caps. Just finished a passive-aggressive war with one that kept stashing a Canon behind our stereos. He'd hide it, I'd find it a few hours later, he'd hide it again a few days later, I'd find it a few hours later... this went on and on until I finally found an empty box. It's okay though, AP has a LOT of photos of him now. So nice of him to keep showing up like that. :applause:

People here shouldn't freak out that Target is trying to crack down on their electronics clearance security. Gives the honest people here a shot at scoring some good deals rather than thieves stealing it or hoarders taking everything for themselves.

Hey now, if you watched Gone in 60 Seconds, you'd know that you can get a blacklight light bulb from any local hardware store. [-(

What's a hardware store? Moreover what's "Gone In 60 Seconds".;):razz: I kid on both counts, but I've never seen more than 20 seconds of Gone In 60 Seconds and I don't think I've ever used a blacklight aside from inside a Spencer's store, not to mention I'm all thumbs when it comes to anything home improvement.:booty:

The annoying too was yesterday when I went to Kmart the woman working electronics said that ANYTHING purchased in electronics, she had to personally escort to the customer service desk. This wasn't just me...but other people as well. WTF?!!! This wasn't just items locked up either. There were games or misc electronics items that weren't locked up either.

She was able to pricecheck games on the register in electronics. I don't know if the drawer wasn't open or not or wtf the case was there. She wanted to get snippy w/ me & get an attitude when I asked why they had to be escorted to the front of the store. "Well do you want them or NOT?!!" :roll:

I wasn't being difficult, just trying to find the reasoning for this.

They do that here at times too. I guess they figure if you try to take the game or whatever with you it's going to disappear. But if you already paid for it in electronics, wouldn't that make it yours anyway, so I don't know what her problem was.

But yeah, I've had at least a few clerks like that.:lol::-#

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

I was able to get Brutal Legend (360) as my free game this morning when I bought a copy of Super Street Fighter IV and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. It hadn't dropped from its $13.98 price, but it was the only clearance game that I was interested in picking up. Since I had already bought SSF IV, I'm going to return the copy I previously bought and get my $20 back.

There were a few new PS2 games on the clearance shelf including Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 at $14.98. Also, all of the original DJ Hero bundles that were $29.99 had been mysteriously removed from the shelves. Do I smell a Black Friday deal?

Man I'd take advantage of the B2G1 if more was cheaper. If they'd drop the freakin price of their GH5 bundle I'd do that, SSF IV and find something else.

I'm with you on that one. It told me about 20 minutes to settle on the ones I chose today. There weren't even many decent $20 games on the shelf. Mass Effect 2 is $20 now, but I'm waiting to pick up a pre-owned copy of that game at Blockbuster for $10. And I don't own a PS3. I think the PS3 owners might do the best with the buy 2, get 1 sale this week.

Nothing dropped at the 3 locations I checked today. There's one more location I can check and might do so later, but I don't think they had anything that interested me there anyway.

Just about every available team member will be marking down Halloween stuff or setting up Xmas stuff. I'm betting the electronics markdowns aren't very high on the "to-do-list" today.

That's when you get the DPCI # and if you have one of the Target stores with the scanners where you can enter the numbers in you can check that way without having to wait for someone to open the case to get a game out for a price check.

Well how would you get the DCPI# to do all that? I think it would be easier to just have them open the case.

I think me2 is worth it b/c the ceburus network card is $15 alone. you won't get that from blockbuster.

i am thinking about me2, but then i'm thinking a goty edition will come out soon.

Damn prices refuse to drop here. Been staring at 34.99 copies of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and 19.99 copies of Tekken 6 for like 2 weeks now =/.

Also, the employee's are getting crafty with thier hiding spots <_<. Noticed that 2 copies of Borderlands had went missing, and upon closer inspection i saw them neatly hidden behind the Nintendo DS's in the DS case.

I saw :ps3: Guitar Hero 5 guitar bundle for $22.48 (75% off) today. Unfortunately no 360 version, which I would buy for that price.

No stand-alone clearance console games at all on the endcap, though. Maybe they hadn't done the monday morning re-pricing yet due to halloween markdowns, as someone suggested. The only clearance game I saw other than the bundle was :360: Backyard Football, in the plastic prison, for 30% off.

The $14.99 - $59.99 restriction is based on pre-clearance price, so it should still be valid. When you check it at the scanner, it will show "Special Purchase" on the right hand side of the screen if it qualifies.

Didn't work that way for me. I got some gifts today:

2x DS Clubhouse Games @ 4.98 each
1x DS Littlest Pet Shop Country @ 7.48

and there was no free game. Paid 18.xx total. Checked at the scanner and there was no "Special Purchase" notation either.

Halloween items drop automatically without the need of team members.

I bought a Guitar Hero 5 bundle for 360 for 22.48 today. I tried to use it for the b2g1 free and it did not work for me. :(

Either way, I was able to get Borderlands GOTY edition (360) for 29.99 today so thats a good thing.

Oh, I got lucky. Someone put a 29.99 price tag on it and I had found it in the same section as the Platinum Hits version. It rang up as 59.99 but the associate noticed the error and was like "oh you are getting a 59.99 game for 29.99" and entered the price manually.

GH5 bundle is not qualified for B2G1 free promotion. Tried it a 2 different Targets. No such luck. I ended up buying the bundle at 75% off.

So, let's say I bought a third game today that I wouldn't necessarily mind keeping, but wasn't my top choice because my choice was out of stock.

If I don't open it, how likely is it I can straight exchange (with a receipt) just that game for another game when this sale is over and they restock?

It's only B2G1 on Wii, 360, and PS3 games.
