I couldn't find anything good in this area at all, even on the store locator. I have a feeling that our stores never had some of this merchandise to begin with, or had very little of it. The target closest to me usually gets 1-2 of a product if its a big item like a console bundle or controller bundle pack and then when its gone its gone. So there is no way there would be any controller bundles or any of the big stuff. Also the canadians take everything and are willing to buy it at full retail, leaving not much left for clearance (no offense to anyone on here, this isn't referring to you).

I can't imagine a store over here stocking 10-20 of those controller bundles, which is what appeared in some stores, either that or Target ships their clearance to certain stores which I doubt. The clearance is mainly to get rid of store overstock, as are all clearances, so the stores that were overstocked on the bundles were the ones to clearance them out for example.

Another problem is our stores don't mark stuff down as fast as others, it may take 2-4 weeks for our stores to see the prices that the rest of the nation is seeing.


Its weird, the Buffalo/WNY area Targets will somehow find a whole stock of an item randomly and put them all in the clearance rack. You think they only have 1-2 but then they go in the back or something and pull out 20. Never understood it.

As far as our Targets in general I always find great deals but usually depends on the time of year and of course luck. The Niagara FAlls Target is where the Nucks hit the hardest. The more venture further from the border youll find better deals.

Shouldn't be a huge surprise by now, but nothing new to report this week. Lots of empty spots in the game racks too since they did all of the store revamps, so we may be in for a decent drought.

Nothing new of interest at my local Target. :(

But I did see a bunch of Vita AC adapters at Goodwill today for $3.99 each.
I might go back and grab one b/c I'm sure I'll end up buying a Vita eventually.

No gaming clearance, but did find a Mr Coffee cafe frappe machine for $20 (75% off). Works so much better than the ice cream machine from a year or two ago

That's full price, man. ;)

The only noteworthy thing (to me) at my Target was a few rechargable Energizer battery docks for $4.98. Nabbed one, that's it.

Not clearance, but local Target had :360: Neverdead for $19.99. Regular price tag, not Temporary Price Cut. Target's website and other retailers still list $39.99 as MSRP, so take that for what it's worth.

:360: Asura's Wrath was $29.99 Temp Price Cut

That's almost tempting, since Redbox didn't have it (Asura, I mean).

None of the as is games I've gotten have been used, but I have seen used looking items (opened and returned) in other departments or when it comes to electronics. As is for games usually means a few things:

1. An internet item returned to the store.
2. An item returned to the store that this particular store does not stock anymore.
3. An item returned to the store that this particular store never stocked to begin with.


The manager usually clearances it out at a crazy price and labels it as is because they want to get rid of it with no returns.

Realizing now that this is the slow season for Target Clearance. Been nothing good for a long time at my local targets, and the funny things is all the older clearance items went away, then I found a Goodwill FULL of target clearance items, and the worse part? Goodwill marked the items back up to twice the price Target had them LOL. You can even pull off the Goodwill tags & see the Target clearance tags at the lower prices. I wanted F1 2011, but Goodwill will marked it back up to $19.99 LOL
I love CAG its so cool.... or is it the Power Glove? oh well thats cool too.... right?

So there is nothing clearance.

I saw a Sony S580 Blu Ray Player. When I scan it, it comes up $149.99 and then 5 seconds later, it says item not found.
This is last years model and is priced the same as the new 2012 model S590.
Anyone know why and if anyone can see how much this cost?

I don't know if it'll help much or not but the one at the store I frequent sat at $105.xx on the clearance shelf for about a month and a half and finally sold or went to Goodwill this last weekend.

Nothing game-wise this week, but there were Skullcandy Skullcrushers for $34.98 (50% off). You have no clue how much I wanted to grab 'em, but I already have a pair of Sony MDR V6s that blow the Skullcrushers out of the water. Still... can't exactly go running around outside with a pair of studio headphones. Then again, Skullcrushers aren't exactly the most portable things, either.

Look at me rambling about headphones. Love 'em too much.

For those waiting for the Kindle Fire clearance that never was maybe this will help - the oft rumored constantly delayed dumbed down Googles Nexus Plexus Asus Play7" tablet. I'm guessing better hardware for general tablet stuff, obviously won't work as well w/ Amazon.
