I just picked up my copy and it rang up $14.99. Even the clerk was surprised at the price. I had also checked the price online and it was listed at $14.99.

BTW, for my fellow Fort Lauderdale CAG members, I went to the Kmart located at 670 E Oakland Park Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL and they had 10 more copies on the shelf.

Perhaps it wasn't the $14.99 price that was the mistake in the flyer. Maybe the part about it being $5 off was the mistake. It's possible that it should have been $15 off, but they screwed it up and left the first digit off.

No sign in the game cabinet in south St. Louis County, but all copies left were the first print run w/Avatar stuff. Rang up $14.99 no problem.

As I understand it, Halo CE Anniversary first print has both male & female Avatar items as well as a Skull. I couldn't care less about the avatar stuff, but what's the deal with the skull? Is buying a copy of Anniversary with the bonus stuff the only way to get the skull?

Its just like the skulls in the later versions of the game. You have a bunch of skulls you can find in the game that you can turn on or off in the menus and they do certain things. Some make the game harder and some are just for laughs. Like making grunts explode into confetti and such.

This particular one is called "Grunt Funeral Skull" and it makes it so when you kill a grunt they explode like a grenade a second or two later.

It can only be had via this edition.

Free shipping, $1.25 tax. Still, good deal.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Oh OK, so the Skulls are basically cheat codes. Thanks for the explanation.

As I said, I don't care about Avatar items. But if there's something that actually unlocks content in game (even if it's just a cheat code), I'd rather get that version. So it looks like I should seek out a copy with bonus content when I go looking tomorrow.

Thanks again to the OP for this thread. Never would have know about this deal without it. I've primarily moved on to PC gaming, so I tend to only follow threads that have PC related deals.

Just picked up a copy of the first print at Target which includes the sleeve and the DLC. Got them to PM without any hassle at all.

Would really like a first print, but doubt I can find any. And I am out of town after tomorrow too.

Anyone who concerns themself so much with people that flip games that they go out of their way to call them "losers" is a fairly miserable person. It is the type of person who thinks someone else is always screwing them or they would always get something if is just wasn't for "that person". Flippers are not your problem. I could care less if someone buys a copy of a game to sell someplace else. I am not a fan of buying 8 copies of the game but again it is not enough of a concern for me to think those people are losers. Loser is just a term that miserable people throw around because they are unhappy with themselves.


That loser comment seems to have hit a nerve with you. Not much "winning" in your life? :)

And I wasn't calling all flippers losers, for lack of a better negative term that wasn't an expletive, mainly just the ones who buy multiple copies even when the profit is a few cents either because they don't know or just don't care, like the OP and others seemed to be considering. If I was unemployed, I'd probably turn to deal flipping myself, but otherwise I'd rather more gamers get to share the deals, especially when it would be a poor flip. And before someone gives the "entitlement or socialism" argument, we're not talking stocks here, but recreational video games that people also buy for little children as presents.

Hmm. If Wal-Mart will price match I wonder if I can get an additional discount through my mother's employee discount? ;)


Nope. Once a price adjustment is done the discount won't apply to it.

Ordered on Kmart.com, couldn't resist and I had some next to worthless shop your way reward points to use. There are no Kmarts around here anymore, but I did stop by one on Monday while out working, and they didn't have any on the shelves and the fellow said that if it was in the circular that they might be sent stock of it during the week and to check back on Thursday.

You MUST have the physical ad, not online printout, to PM at Target and you have to do it at customer service.

Thank you for posting this separate from the weekly ad. I don't see the point of having deal threads that just post ads. This is well deserving of a thread of it's own. Great deal!

My local one did a price match right in electronics (guy verified the physical ad, but didn't need to call for supervisor approval/override), so I guess it depends on the particular store.

I'm so sick of the whining when someone posts something that is in another thread somewhere else. If it helps one person find it that wouldn't normally find the sale then it's worth it.

As the OP of this thread, I don't mind the whining.....I think it's pretty funny myself, ESPECIALLY since my thread has been viewed over 6,000 times....and it's apparent it's helped MANY gamers who don't look at the main ad threads, and I've gotten more thanks than the whines.

So I just sit back & :D, knowing I've helped, and my post wasn't a waste.

Keep gaming & being CHEAP !! :lol:

Maybe they've relaxed the restrictions then. I had to go up front on some Blu-Rays I was PM'ing from the BB ad and this was just after Christmas last year, the last time I PM'd at Target.

Fully agreed. This repost hysteria is scaring off users from posting potential deals like this one that deserve recognition. I would have never known, because Kmart is not as red-hot when it comes to ad pricing on media anymore.

Many thanks to the OP and the original ad thread OP as well. Picked up a copy with the sleeve and bonus content without any issues today.

Weird. it says its in stock. I go to put it in cart. Then it goes..."out of stock".

blerg.

and I don't have a k-mart near me at all, so PMing at any store is pretty much contingent on the person handling the cash register being either a new guy in town or someone who just doesn't get out much.

Passed on this. Was gonna PM at Best Buy because I had credit. But the closest Best Buy didn't have the ones with the extras. Good thing too. I used the credit to buy PC games that I PM'd from TRU instead. Used up almost all of my credit, but got Diablo III and Starcraft 2. I'll go back and get MW3 out of pocket.
