CONFIRMED:

Went to K-MARt in Springboro. Ad misprint on circular in store. Walked it back and the guy overrides even though he did state it was a mistake. I was able to get it at the 19.99 price in the circular. THANKS OP!!!!!

If it rang up at 39.99, I think it's pretty clear that the ad meant $10 off but mistakenly put $19.99.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Where did you get the circular at? I looked at the ad with the Sunday paper and I didn't see it?

If that's the case, everyone should go out and get the game before they change the it. Just a heads up.

My Target refused to price match it because it was a $30 off difference. Went to Kmart and the game rang up as $39.99. Brought the ad and managed to get the game for $19.99, but this is definitely an ad misprint. If you're going to try make sure to bring the ad and I'd advise you not to wait.

i hope you're not actually defending kmart here. Even since their SC2 sale when that released in 2010, they haven't been able to work out the kinks in the system and ads matching, which I might add was a legitimate sale.

Kmart sucks but your statement is nonsensical. It's clearly a price mistake in the ad. Any retailer would still need a manager override since a price mistake IN THE AD would mean its not programmed into the pos.

Josh was let go roughly two months or so. That's why there hasn't been that many coupon offers with the purchase of a new game. It sucks because he was getting us some awesome deals. Didn't work for me though because I never buy games on release date (thanks to site ;)).

This thread keeps getting better and better. I hope more people are able to get in on this deal. That's the rule with sales like this. It's better to get their first thing in the morning if this is indeed a price mistake. We all remember the PS+ deal at Target, and the 2 for $50 deal at TRU. ;)

So despite the price showing 19.99 in the physical print ad, the manager refused to override it. At first she stated there was "another version" that was 29.99. Then when that was debunked she just flat out refused to sell it to me for 19.99. The service desk associate was pretty cool about it and said I was in the right. Unfortunately what the manager says goes. At this point my frustration started to boil over to anger, so I just grabbed the print ad and told them I'd go pricematch it at Wal-Mart. Which they did without issue.

It is obvious that this is a price error, but it's still absurd that they won't honor their Sunday print ad. I've come out ahead way more often than not at K-Mart though, and this is the first remotely bad experience I've ever had with them.

Oh well, I've got the game for the price I wanted to pay.

Yeah I saw it posted around here recently. It's a shame really. He pretty much got people back into K-Mart to shop for games. I remember I bought 2K11 on launch because it came with a $20 coupon. I used that coupon on Rock Band 3. I wanted both of those games so I didn't mind paying that. Since then I've been peeping out their deals and whatnot.

BTW: My local K-mart sucks when it comes to clearance. They have the Rockband 3 Keyboard Bundle at $59.99 :-s I was going to buy it was $15 or less. Hopefully they have some more drops. They have a ton of games sitting there that won't move. Maybe the original FF for $10 (PSP) will. /rant

Unfortunately, the store has the right to charge what they want regardless of any ad, sticker or ten foot high sign. Once I got a ship to store deal that fry's cancelled and removed the item from shelves.

It's dishonest, and it's $20 the manager, clerk or whoever is never going to see, but still they'll gladly accept a fight, as theyre getting paid to be there and you're not. It's hard not to feel cheated, but dont get too worked up about it, it's just money. I'm glad it did work out in the end.

Yeah the situation was frustrating, but I got what I wanted in the end. It's not like I'm going to stop shopping there or anything. And I guess you could still say it was K-mart that allowed me to get the game for the price I wanted anyway.

I've had this situation happen countless times in K-mart and this is the first time I've ever had any push back on it.

good guy, but I'm not the only one with bad experiences at kmart. The point I was trying to make is that most deals tended to be turned around eventually as price mistakes. See any of the good TRU sales/bestbuy deals, etc. Kmart's system for whatever reason took almost half a day before sales showed up correctly in the system. Josh's only recourse was to return later and try again, but the hassle in most cases wasn't even worth the extra trip and sullied their reputation regardless. If others still have good experiences, then great, but a lot of people here try to make that guarantee universally, when in reality kmart's implementation of sales are still YMMV in terms of ease.

So despite the price showing 19.99 in the physical print ad, the manager refused to override it. At first she stated there was "another version" that was 29.99. Then when that was debunked she just flat out refused to sell it to me for 19.99. The service desk associate was pretty cool about it and said I was in the right.

i guess you were lucky that WM doesn't question the ad. I know my BB and WM confirm the availability and pricing before allowing it, with a 99% rejection rate typically lol. The problem with Kmart is the need for constant involvement of the manager with any sale, "price mistake" or not. I'm glad it worked out for you in the end.:applause:

With exception to the ds3 clearance, I haven't set foot in a kmart since Deadspace 2 came out... I always hated the deals and like someone mentioned above, I just wait til they are $1-20 thanks to this site/SD.

Hell, I got BF3 on release day for $5 out of pocket thanks to this site and LA Noire for $20.

Anyways, back OT. I am trying to get my hands on a paper with a kmart ad in it, so I can pm this @ wallyworld.

Went to Kmart to get the ad, the manager let me purchase one copy and then refused to honor the ad. Understandable. But I wanted a second copy so,

On way back went to Bestbuy. they refused to honor the ad because they called Kmart and the Kmart lady said they were out of stock (they had 50 on the shelves when I went there an hour ago) Obviously, she is trying to cock block the price match.

Anyway after wasting time at Bestbuy (and to be honest, its not their fault. I wouldn't sell any game that retails for 50 at 20 bucks out of the blue) I went to Target and they priced matched instantly.

Basically the fact that Bestbuy has to call to check Kmart is what screwed everything up (saying out of stock). Target on other hand only looked at the Ad and said ok.

went to K-mart, picked up a AD and did not see any games on the ad at all. So I didn't bother asking to price match whats not in their ad. Then again when I looked at the game section, it was almost no games so I guess this K-mart had their own ad?

I'd call it a waste of a trip, but I got a good work out thanks to my new bike.

I'll probably visit the only other k-mart.
