I bought Civ 5 at KMart w/a $20 gaming coupon...day of launch.

Target is getting pretty lame. Especially since their clearance has been mostly non-existent.

Yes, NBA Elite is delayed and will no longer come with NBA Jam, which will now be sold separately.


Fuck NBA Jam. I originally wanted it, but am not buying it now since EA decided to be turd nuggets about it.

I guess I should've known better, but I figured maybe there was an actual discount/promotion for the iPad.

Fortunately, their awesome clearance deals almost totally negate that they rarely ever have a noteworthy sale.


wish i saw these awesome clearance deals you speak of :(
I never see any at the Targets in my area. I for one am convinced they don't care anymore either. It's a shame too... I shop at Target for almost everything else I need! Er.. want?

Well, Target will be selling iPads, so I guess they don't need to have good promos.

Oh, boy, $5! This is after Target is listed on Civilization5.com as having a $10 gift card for purchase on release week. Never thought I'd say this, but thank goodness for K-Mart!

That 25 Gc promo for any move game.

Well, I was wondering that NBA 2k11 is releasing on the same week. And it has a move functionality and move sticker on the game. So will that game count as a 'move' game and eligible for 25gc?

Only time will tell

My store stopped having good clearance titles some time ago. Now 90% of the clearance games are Call of Duty 3 for the PS2 and I don't see those titles moving anytime soon. Last time they had that big of an overstock was Mass Effect for the 360 and that never sold (and then one day they were suddenly all gone).

My buy/sell/trade list: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=230525

 

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Actually I hope they wait until the following week.

The longer they wait the more games come out that can be used for the sale.

I hate having to deal with the place-holder issues later on.

Its easier to just get them the first time around.


They won't do this. And the games on the 10-16 games won't be in stores as they should be. Some managers aren't going to asses about swapping for newer games. Some asses (cause i'm not the type and I despise yall even in some retarded way it's fair) are going to go buy out shit the day (or even two days) before the sale and bring it back for price matching. Others will try to get Best Buy to PM. Some will have success others will get frustrated.

The patterns are patterns for a reason. They guide us. Don't fight them. Go with the flow.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Guess K-Mart's sales haven't been hurting Target much since they are making no effort to compete. I stopped even bothering to check Target for clearances after many trips of nothing or next to nothing in my area.

They won't do this. They NEVER have the sale the B2G1 sale on the third week when several new titles come out that people want. This sale is to clear inventory, not give you the latest and greatest in games.

And the games on the 10-16 games won't be in stores as they should be. The games that come out on the Tuesday of this week are rarely available. People banking on picking up Medal of Honor Limited Edition will most likely have to purchase a game with intentions to swap for the desired game the following week.

Games that you intend to swap can be exchanged up to 30 days.

Some managers aren't going to asses about swapping for newer games.
When attempting to swap a filler game for a new game, some TRU managers will be dicks about the situation.

Some asses (cause i'm not the type and I despise yall even in some retarded way it's fair) are going to go buy out shit the day (or even two days) before the sale and bring it back for price matching.
This is probably where it got unintelligible. I get all pissy and always comes out bad. But this week sucks for people going the week of the sale because next Friday and Saturday people will go and buy all the good shit with intent to swap/pm when the sale starts. Or worse hoarding with intent to trade.

Others will try to get Best Buy to PM. Some will have success others will get frustrated.
People will complain about Best Buy even though it's a TRU sale. Always have and always will.

The patterns are patterns for a reason. They guide us. Don't fight them. Go with the flow.
People will keep hoping and hoping for changes but it's been the same for nearly 4 or 5 years. Nothing is going to change until the sale is gone.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Not much on sale at Best Buy next week. :-?

:360: Buy any Xbox 360 console, get Tony Hawk Ride for free.
:360: Preorder Kinect, get 3 pre-order-only game levels for Kinect Adventures, the game that comes with Kinect.

:360: (and maybe :ps3:? Ad is not clear about it): Buy Castlevania: Lords of Shadow at $60, get a free download of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
:360: (and maybe :ps3:? Ad is not clear about it): Buy Enslaved: Odyssey to the West at $60, get a Best Buy exclusive downloadable Robot costume for free.

:wii: Just Dance - $30
:wii: Preorder Just Dance 2 as a Rewards Zone Gamers Club member, get 500 bonus points.

That's it. Everything else is on the ad involving video games is at MSRP.

If you have a PS3, but are not gamesharing, you're doing it wrong.
Get a $60 game on day one for as low as $10?! :hot:

I just bought my 360 the other day from BB and I didn't get anything free. I'd settle for something like Tony Hawk over nothing at all! Is this the Tony Hawk game that comes with the skateboard thingy?

If I bring in the receipt to the 360 I bought two weeks ago will they honor the free Tony Hawk Ride game? Free game = trade in.


FYI the SOTN download code for buying Castlevania works for both versions of the game.

Most stores give next to nothing for Ride, if they even take it at all.

I'd give it a try once, then i'd definitely break the skateboard. Take that, Bobby Kotick!
