Has anyone had luck with finding the two Kirby Wii games for 9.99? Someone mentioned it was that price but I went today and it rang up $34.99.


I sent a pm to the person that posted that. They were stickered $19.99 at his store, but rang up for $49.99. He was able to get a manager override to get them both for $9.99 each. And here I was about to head back to the store tomorrow after reading his post. Glad I sent that pm.

He was talking like his find was common. Well thanks for the info. Saved me a trip.

Well it was gonna come eventually right? The last Blockbuster in my neighborhood is finally closing down. Thanks for all the B1G1 opportunities and the combo pass BBV. You will be missed.

Yeah, this last sale was pretty bitter sweet. There is only ONE store within any reasonable distance from me and I got all of one game (Madden 12 Wii) to build up my GS credit. That is a far cry from the old days. It wasn't all that long ago (3-4 years) that I had 9 or 10 stores within a reasonable distance and an abundance of games that no one else ever wanted (so I felt no qualms getting them for GS trades).

There are still a few in outlying areas but it isn't worth going up to those. The two highest-grossing stores in the whole metro area have closed recently. I was very surprised by the last one which I figured would be the last to ever close. I went there the other day and it was long gone with all the interior and even the exterior sign gone. I had no idea!

Still, I think it was pretty fitting that I got one whole game from the sale when I used to get many per store in the old days. I have no faith that the remaining store near me (and by near I mean 10 miles) will make it through much of next year.

However, it was interesting to see what they had for sale. They actually had a Skylanders Giants display that was pretty well stocked. And they were selling many more new games than the last time I was in there. They even had a pretty good selection of new Wii U games! I noticed the Nintendo games were conspicuously absent both for sale and rental. Seems pretty odd not to have NSMBU at the very least. There must be something going on there between Nintendo and Blockbuster. And yet they had a pretty nice display for all the Wii U stuff.

I guess I was pretty shocked to see all the new games (they also had 360 and PS3 games). I expected the store to be half empty or filled with garbage. I don't know why, but that would have seemed more appropriate.

Ran by one of my local stores to see if I could rent a copy of nsmb:wu. They didn't even have cut outs for it..

However I did notice the sale was still going on for 50% off 19.99 and under. Ended up picking the following up for 18.82 after tax.
shadows of the damned - ps3
Mgs4 -ps3
Farcry 2 - 360

Got Rayman Origins for $9, it was the only game I didn't have from the bin. It was a pain in the ass trying to find the BB, Google maps turn by turn needs some work.

Sale ends January 7, according to associate who checked sheet with bar codes. There were some decent titles at my store. I restrained myself and only picked up Uncharted 3 ($10 AD) and Alice (for my wife). Tempted to go back for Shadows of the Damned.

Lucky day for me here. Had to drive across town to get Max Payne 3, decided to check the nearby blockbuster again and noticed that instead of being in a cardboard bin, they had neatly organized all the sales games and had some new stuff out.

Ended up grabbing Pokemon Platinum and Explorers of Sky for only 13$. Saw a few other games that I might go back and grab tomorrow or Friday.

They closed the last Blockbuster close to me a few months ago. It was always busy too. Really miss these sales, they had the best selection. I just did a store location search and found one close to Mother's place. She's about an hour away so maybe I can go there tomorrow or Sunday while visiting the family this weekend.

Blockbuster by my house is finally closing. Surprised it lasted as long as it did. Clearance deals are unremarkable at this point. (Irondale, AL)

I don't even feel like stepping into a Blockbuster these days because I'm usually 100% sure I'll be walking out empty handed. Waste of everyone's time.

The current sale is as good a sale as they've ever had, if not better.

I agree, the 50% off $20 or lower titles is a helluva deal! So far I've picked up mass effect 3 x2, Uncharted 3 x2, Killzone 3, batman AC, BF BC1 & Red faction:A

My personal favorite was 5 for $25.
