I was reading the circular and it said Toysrus has Super Princess Peach and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time found only instore. Has anybody found luck finding them, despite it selling $60 new elsewhere?


The stores have been selling these games ever since that week they had that Mario special where you had to buy like $100 of Mario stuff for some promotion. Partners in Time is 29.99 currently and SPP 34.99 in store. There's also Mario Hoops 3 on 3 for 29.99 too.

Got two Move controllers with the deal today. I got tired of waiting for Sony Rewards to fulfill my order from September 17.

Just for the record, the TRUS at Northgate in Seattle is one of the most incompetently run stores of ANY retailer I have dealt with in over 20 years. They lie about stock, many of the employees are clueless about even the basics, and the store is pretty damn dingy to boot. After my most recent "incident", I will drive the extra distance and shop in Lynnwood or Bellevue. Am working on family and friends to patronize another store from now on.

Retail sales are predicted to rise only 2.4% compared to last year...but that is looking downright optimistic based on what I saw Black Friday + the kinds of deals I am seeing leading up to Xmas. I hope none of my fellow CAG members hold any stock in retail companies, because I'd imagine said stocks are going to take a thrashing when the holiday sales numbers come out.


It all depends on expectations and what is already priced into the market. If investors have bought in expecting a steaming pile of diarrhea for retail sales and instead the holidays yield just a simple pile of solid doo that isn't steaming, then you beat expectations and can start humming the "I'm in the money" tune.

Regardless... these brick and mortar 'sales' stink like a pile of any kind of defecate. What junk.

Amazon FTW!

Picked up 2 Move Bundles, one with the Eyepet and one with Sports Champions for $99.99 + tax. Plan to sell one of the eyes and see how Eyepet is... if it's good, I'll keep it, if not off to eBay it goes!

Now I'm debating what other Move games to get...

Has anyone been able to confirm if Donkey Kong Country Returns is eligible for the sale? I know it's pictured in the ad but apparently not included in the sale online, and when I contacted a sales rep asking about its eligibility for the online sale, this was his response:

I investigated the promotional catalogue where you saw the picture of
the Donkey Kong Country for Nintendo Wii. I know that the stores do run
their own promotions that we are not able to. I would recommend
contacting the store directly to find out if that item applies for the
sale they are running. From what I can tell, the Donkey Kong country
game was not part of the sale and should not have been pictured there. I
apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

If DKCR isn't part of the sale in stores, then the wording for this sale really is misleading.

If you have a KMart nearby they have been doing AWESOME deals and coupons since June. If you have a bad KMart nearby or RZ GC to redeem, just PM the KMart ad like I did. They've got a bunch of the EA Sports games for $30 (NBA JAM!) or $40 this week.

I picked up Time Crisis: Razing Storm (amazon BF weekend deal). It's fun. worth it in the $25-$30 range.

Edit: it's a Move game.

I didn't see it mentioned in the OP, but I picked up Sonic Colors for my nephews on sale for 39.99 (from 49.99). It looks like Amazon is matching that as well. I also grabbed the new-ish Sin and Punishment from their clearance section for 12.50 for myself, so I was pretty happy.

Its pretty ridiculus that in 2010 websites that have B&M locations do not have updated inventory checkers updating at least hourly.

But I guess that would reduce people from visiting their stores if thye knew ahead of time they were sold out.
And half the time when you call the person/people have no clue of on hand stock for any item.
