Hey All,

Just wondering if there are any other members on here from the Augusta, GA area.

Looking for people to be on the lookout for each other for steals/deals/trades.

There seems to be a lot of CAGs in the area though, most of the time I see a deal on here, the stores are all sold out by the time I get there.

Just moved from there a while back, but it seemed like there were either some local CAGs that would always get the deals, or el-hoardo that would find everything and buy it to resell.

I know, it's ridiculous. I've spent the last 2 weeks in Atlanta, well Duluth, and I've been buying up all kinds of stuff for cheap. When I come back home this weekend I'll have to adjust to not finding anything anymore.

Well, it's not like Augusta has all that many spots to buy from anyway. Both Targets usually suck, or the clearance gets wiped out at 30% off. Best Buy NEVER has games on clearance, nor do any of the Walmarts...

Both kmarts suck too. Well, everything in Augusta sucks.

Any particular games/systems you guys looking for so I can keep an eye out? I live on the south side so I usually don't go past the ghetto walmart unless there's something specific I need from somewhere else. But I find the occasional deal down this way.

I've found good stuff at both the Targets before...it's just few and far between.

I've got an xbox360 and girlfriend has a 3ds so anything for either of those I might take some interest in.

We had a Play N' Trade over here in North Augusta, but it closed down a few months ago....they were always overpriced and the employees seemed like they didn't care if they made any business or not.

That's how the one in Evans was too. I'd walk in and either be the only person in there (and get no acknowledgment at all), or if I found something the price would be absurdly high. It's no wonder they went out of business...

I just have a ps3 now so I'll be on the lookout for any 360/3ds games for cheap.

And the Evans play'n'trade closed? I used to work out at World color and saw it a couple times but never actually went. Guess I never will now

There used to be a Rhino Games in South Augusta near the WM down that way but it was converted to a Gamestop after the buyout. Unfortunately I found out about the store around 2 months before Gamestop bought them so didn't get to enjoy it for long.

Employees there were always really nice and prices seemed fair on most items.

There's a store on Washington rd. behind hooters in the old books a million building called 2nd & Charles, they sell new/used games, books, cds, dvds, blu-ray, vinyl records, comic books, a little bit of everything.

Their game selection ranges from NES to current gen games. Most are usually around the same price as everywhere else, some are way overpriced like they haven't given it a price drop in a long time, but occasionally you can find a decent deal. Plus they sometimes have some of the rarer games since a lot of people don't know about the place to buy it all, not to mention the older nes/genesis/snes games you can find.

You can trade in games/books/movies all kinds of stuff for store credit(or cash, less than credit of course), not sure if they give you a decent amount for trade ins though.

That is what I have noticed around here. I don't think there is a problem with hording around here, because when Blockbuster had Buy 1 Get 1 sales, I never had a problem finding stuff even a week or two after the sale has started.

Sadly all Blockbusters have closed. :(

If you guys are interested a friend of mine had just opened a store on Peach Orchard Road called Video Game Heaven.

Ironically I also knew one of the guys who owned Play N Trade from High School, but yea they didn't try to hard to show their knowledge and wanted to follow Ebay and such for pricing anything that was Pre-PS2 era.

^ There IS a Blockbuster still open in Aiken, SC.

Take Aiken-Augusta Highway all the way to the large intersection just before entering the "city of Aiken" (there is a large deserted car lot called Dick Smith on the left side of the road) at this intersection take a right and then you will be on the 'bypass'. Follow it all the way down and then straight ahead of you across the intersection will be a Blockbuster.

I haven't been in there in years though but I know it's still open.

What part of Peach Orchard? I'd love to support a locally owned shop, depending on price and selection of course. And what are the hours?

Did any of you go grab SSX for 360 from Best Buy?

It's been showing in stock all week on the site but now says I'd have to order it to be in stock all of a sudden. Was planning on going by there tomorrow but now seems pointless.

Its right across from the Hibatchi grill over there. I live in Evans, so I'm not over there that often.

The selection is pretty slim on 360/PS3, but its pretty nice selection on the older stuff.

The prices aren't to bad and I hate to sound like gamestop, but if you have stuff your trying to get rid off he gives you pretty good credit.

His store hours: closed mondays, tuesday 10-9, wed 12-5, thurs 10-9, friday 10-9, saturday 10-9, sunday 12-5

Stopped by there today and got killer instinct and super spike v'ball for nes. Decent selection and prices considering how much you would pay on ebay or something. I told them you referred me on this site and they knew exactly who you were.

Kmart on Washington rd. is closing, they're starting clearance on Sunday. Not sure if everything will be clearanced or if they'll phase things in gradually. Probably start at something low like 10% off and slowly get better.

Wow, things just keep getting worse in the area don't they? Granted K-mart hasn't had much in the last couple of years, but still.

I wonder how long Toys R Us can stay around.

Its almost getting to the point where there no reason to go out looking for deals any more. :(

Electronics were 10% off, everything else between 10-30% off. Nothing too special yet. Should get better in the coming weeks.

No price drops at Kmart yet, electronics are still 10% off, everything else is between 10-30% off. And they are NOT honoring sales paper prices. Anything on sale in the sale paper is probably even cheaper at the Gordon highway kmart

Also, went to Best Buy a couple hours ago and they had a couple copies for KoA for both ps3 and 360 left. The lady at the checkout said people had been coming in all day using the @gamer coupon to get it for $10. If you're interested, might want to get it soon. Then again, the coupons are good for a month and a half, probably have some more come in.

I figured that would happen if I went so I didn't bother.

It wasn't worth the 15 minute drive to be disappointed.
