Mario Kart DS is 24.99... but the store associate I dealt with today informed me that it MIGHT go down to 9.99...?

Either way, I've got some games on hold, though some little bitch has my Galaxy that I was gonna flip... and my Mario Party 8 vanished. lol

Tomorrow will be fun I'm sure.


Wow such self entitled comments that game is not yours and your arrogance is amazing, don't pollute this cite with your terrible comments no one wants to hear them.

I did some scouting at my local bbv and there's a ton of eligible games. Fallout new vegas here I come.

I also did some scouting, and I couldn't find ANY games that were priced $14.99 and under. I'm hoping that they're just getting them ready for the sale tomorrow.

Most do, but there also are employees that think you're trying to "game the system" and will argue. Guess it depends on how good your local store is.


At which point you ask them for 2 separate transactions and watch them do nothing about it. I hate Jr. Detectives.

Or you could start calling the District Manager and watch them quickly change their minds :p. The number is usually behind the counter on a huge poster.

Two stores in my area. A buddy of mine works at one, and is holding a couple games for me.

What are the odds a random employee at another store will hold titles for me? Is that a common practice, or just one of those "you gotta ask" kinda things?

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

While this sounds like a bitch thing to do... for the employees like that, just choose to buy one 14.99 game and one 9.99 game.. then walk out... and circle back inside to buy the other two. They cannot prevent the sale, and if they attempt to, you can report them for it.

When I used to work there, we would hold titles for people that asked. That was usually 1 or 2 titles max, though. We wouldn't hold 10+ items for people, so don't get too crazy.

Or, rather than the other suggestions, you can just tell them that you need these on two separate receipts because two of the games are for gifts.

Are you only counting Best Buy and Gamestop for places to flip the games to? If so, then you have not found the location(s) giving cash for some of these sale games yet.;)


Actually, i dont even trade in to Gamestop anymore (Or atleast rarely). Though, pretty much only other places i deal with are Best Buy, Toys R Us, and some other local stores.

Either way, i checked out 3 locations today. First one had jack squat, second one had a few decent ones i wanted for my collection (EA MMA, Lost Planet 2, and quite a few other 9.99 games). 3rd store had a ton of games (Mostly Wii/DS games, but a few good PS3/360 games), and also looked like they had a huge shelf of stuff behind thier registers that they were going to convert.

I can't find anything good to flip to pay for the games I want ... new vegas is already toast on best buy, down to around 9. I don't understand why I didn't lock that in when it was 20. Stupid.

Not game related but more movie sales for memorial day weekend. Each store is supposed to get approx 1500 pre viewed movies this week. Prices start at $4.99 on friday, $3.99 sat., $2.99 sun. and $.99 on mon.

Was informed today on our weekly call that we will run another b1g1 on 4th of July weekend. Hope they plan on sending more games as most stores probably won't have much after this sale.

I've never had a real problem with employees willing to do separate transactions for two $14.99 games and two $9.99 games. I usually just ask them up front if they are willing to do that because I'd like to buy all 4 games but obviously want to spend less. The only time I ever had someone say no and be a dick about it I said "ok, well I'll just take these two" bough and paid for them, put them in my car, walked back in and took the other 2 up to the counter and acted like I hadn't just been in there. You know what I mean, "Hi, how are you?" as I walked up smiling. Thought her head was going to explode but she rang it up without making even a tiny fuss.

Great news. Just came from my local BBV, and that bad boy is stocked. Less PS3 than I'd like, but a pretty good selection nonetheless. Only problem I seem to run into is stuff not priced correctly, but I have a pretty good idea about what qualifies.
Hawaiiboy, can you tell me if Splatterhouse or Enslaved qualify? Seems like they would be at $15 by now, but can't really tell.
