You guys realize we're all being played for fools right? Don't you find it interesting that since last year, it has become pretty easy to pick up relatively new titles for around $40 without alot of effort?

I mean we we're seeing titles drop within a weeks sometimes and now so many of these "buy multiple" offers and pre-order credit bonuses that net the price to $40. Sure does make you think we're getting a hell of deal, doesn't it?

Originally we were bamboozled into $60 price point because the games were "next gen". Now I think these SW companies are ready for permanent $40 price points but something is keeping that from happening across the board.

Love it when companies get together behind the scenes to fix prices but figure out a way to make the average joe blow feel like they are getting a great deal, don't you??


Listen to Lyndon Larouche over here.

Does anyone remember if this has worked with Clearance games in the past ?

I want to say it did.


Yes. Last year I got Ninja Gaiden Sigma II as part of this deal when it was on clearance.

Does this apply to clearance as well?


I have the same question. I picked up Gears of War 3 Limited Edition on clearance the other day. If it includes clearance items I'm going to return/rebuy it.

Nintendo games have a tendency to hold their value, but Sonic games often drop like a rock. And Kirby DS is only $30 instead of $50 like the others, so you're not maximizing your freebie.


You can do better :p

Just checked Target's site and it says not sold in stores for Kirby Return to Dreamland. I figured the obscure titles like Fist of the North Star and Time Crisis Razing Storm wouldn't be carried at local stores, but Kirby?!

Edit: I would like to go the expensive route for once. Kirby for $50, Red Dead GOTY for $50, and some other $50 game like New Super Mario Bros. Wii or some other $50 game for free. Going to get Sonic Generations from Gamestop or Kmart.

Might be a stupid question, but does Target accept competitor's coupons? I've been grabbing all the big titles at Kmart over the past few weeks... just landed $30 of of BF3 for picking up B:AC... and now I have a $20 off coupon to use for UC3, which will come with another $20 off coupon. Crazy-ass deals going on!

No they don't.

And the cover of the ad actually shows Return to Dreamland, so I would assume if they don't have it now they will by next week.

This is a stupid question, but I'll ask it anyway. Will it be online as well or store only?

I don't have a Target so if its store only I'll be sol. I've got Uncharted 3 pre-ordered, but I could always cancel it and go this route.

Keep in mind your store most likely wont price adjust clearance deals. Their policy is to return all clearances back to the stockroom for update pricing and tagging etc. Youll be lucky if they let you walk out with the item in the same transaction

Is kirby really not being sold in stores? Ugg I might as well go with the TRU kirby deal with mass attack and keep my amazon order.

no idea what i want, but Im getting uncharted for sure. maybe dark souls, maybe battlefield 3. might just get BF3 to sell. not sure if I even want to open it.

is this instore only?


Dammit! Why can't this deal go till November 8th? I'd pick up two copies of Uncharted and a copy of Metal Gear HD Collection...


buy 3 copies of uncharted 3 since it'll be the least likely to drop to $40 fast & sell 2 of them for $50 cash each on CL. You'll end up with UC3 for $20 + tax, then wait 3-4 weeks & p/u the other 2 titles you want for $60-$65 total. That's 3 titles for around $90 + tax.

For the flippers use the same strategy but sell all of them for $150 gain $30 - the tax.

As mentioned more than once in the Target clearance thread, you can return late at night and try to time it as they bring it back out towards the video game section, waiting for someone to put it back out on the floor and re-tag it.

I did this the other day with the Turtle Beach X11's, returned around 7:00pm, went back in around 9:00pm because I forgot to grab something and saw it sitting in a shopping cart. Re-bought it for half what I just returned it for.

How does target handle b2g1f anyone know? 60 + 60 + 0 or 40 + 40 + 40

Place holders anyone?


Otomedius Excellent comes out this week but I don't know any other closely priced games I want. IIIIIIIIIIIF it even releases this time.....


For Target BOGO 50% off they do full price + half price on receipt, but note each game has 25% off for returns. Therefore I'd assume for returns it would be 40 + 40 + 40

Each store puts its clearance return out at varying times. Ive tried what youve done at no avail. Its not worth the guesswork and trouble imo.

Exactly how it shows on the receipt. Purchase price and a refund price. No Placeholders.

Yeah I know that I probably got really lucky, but I was content on just returning it since I originally bought it for $30. Luckily with what happened, I got it for $15.

Query: Are you limited to one copy of each title or can you buy multiple titles? Say that I have three cheapass law students who want to get Uncharted 3 even though we'll have no time to play it. Can we get three copies for approx. $40 per person?
