Hi Guys,

I was at the Costco tonight and found a bin of assorted Wii, 360, PS3, and DS games. All of the Wii/DS games were $14.99, and the 360/PS3 games were $24.99. There was a lot of garbage, but there were a few stand outs I noticed, which were GREAT deals. I've listed what I recall below.

Wii - 14.99
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Metroid: Other M
Kirby's Epic Yarn

PS3 - 24.99
Sly Collection
Uncharted 2

360 - 24.99
blur
Thor

Peace.

Good deal on the Wii games.

Quick question, if my parents have a Costco card can I use their card at checkout or do they need to bee present when I buy something.

Yeah, is this a new nationwide sale/promotion? I was at Costco last week and those particular Wii games definitely were not 14.99. The 14.99 Wii games I saw were basically shovelware

I'll check my local store(s) sometime this week. If I can get DKCR, I can take it over to WalMart and get my $25 back.

I should be able to call and get an answer right?? The nearest one is a little far, and I don't want to go for nothing.

Maybe I'll end up putting my foot in my mouth, but I find this very hard to believe. The few times Costco has clearance bins, it's almost always exclusively filled with third party shovelware.

In the OPs defense, this is the time of year that Costco usually puts out its holiday selection of games. In years past, it has been mostly junk and a few gems with lots of DS and Wii shovelware and a coupon that brought the games down to $10 for a few weeks in late October. This may just be a store that put their selection out early. Everyone should give it some time and see if other reports trickle in.

I don't think the cashiers really care or pay attentions. Wasps the harm in trying?

I'm at Costco right now as I write this on my phone, and turned up nada. I call BS on this. Costco isn't the type of place to have YMMV deals, or put displays out early. $14.99 for Mario Galaxy 2 would be fantastic, but just a fantasy for now.

I'm assuming this is Extremely YMMV so I won't be driving to my nearest Costco.

Actually, you are wrong on both accounts. Costco frequently has YMMV sales on games as manager's specials when they have a couple of copies left of older titles that didn't move. Similarly, when they had their holiday sales last year, two Costcos near me put their games out almost a month before the other local store I shop at. I shop at Costco twice a week and have been doing so for almost 15 years, so I am very familiar with how it operates. I have no idea if the titles mentioned in the OP are just manager's specials to clear old inventory or part of the holiday bins, but I would repeat my call for people to wait and see how this turns out over the next few weeks instead of calling BS on an OP that appears to be trying to share a deal.

My Costco is in anchorage, ak. It was indeed super mario galaxy 2.

I picked up smg2 and dkcr. I haven't even opened them yet, so if anyone really needs to see pics with the 14.99 still in the gray plastic guards I can throw them up on imgur when I get off work.

You can try, but most stores won't give prices over the phone. I suppose it's worth a shot, though.

I didn't see SMG2 or DKCR, but I did see Other M and Kirby Epic Yarn for $15. Kirby had a generic UPC sticker over its barcode and said "Great Value" under the price so it would be hard to locate specifically. But I also saw Blur and Sly Collection at the OP's prices.

Sounds identical to how the holiday value games were restickered last year. Pretty amazing that Nintendo is actually allowing first party games to be sold at such a steep discount by Costco.
