Man I feel good about this days hawl. I got the following games at Walmart. But yeah It was crazy like 100 people lines up and everyone rushed as soon as it was time. (I was in the back of the line because my dad had to go to the bathroom lol). So I wasn't gonna get much games. But the people that came before me got all the games they didnt want and put them on top of the stands. Realy nice of them because they where afraid people that where bending down and kneeling where gonna get hurt.


Borderlands 2 $25
God of War Saga $15
GTA 4 Complete $15
GT5 Complete $10
Hp Printer 3056 $40

So very good savings. Around 4 hours of waiting but Id say that with $145 of savings it was worth it. The only game I coudn't get was Red Dead Redemption GOTY but thats okay because it wasn't one of my deal breakers.

Funny thing is I ran in to Borderlands 2 and GTA4 Complete while I was walking to the cashier. Glad people just left them in other places xD.

It was pretty full and kind of chaotic but no one got hurt and there was cops and security everywhere so everything went out pretty smoothly. Ill probably go again next year.

For some reason I thought Arkham City GOTY was going for $10 at Target, but it rang up for $15. Did anyone pick it up for $10 somewhere? Of all the places I went to tonight, Target was the most physically and mentally taxing. Almost a 2 hour wait in the check out line. WalMart was crazy crowded but they moved us out very quickly.

It's the older one with the Avatar on the front. I have one of those that rang up correct and 3 new ones that didn't.


I went straight to the cash registers and grabbed 8. Of those 8 cards their were 3 variations - none of them matched the new style pictured in the ad. The three kinds were the white background with avatars, one with a green swirl stripe going up the side and one with a gold/green swirl.

Of those 3 variations the avatar ones were the only to ring up as 20$, I did get them to take 50% off these to bring to 9.99. I was worried at first because those were the first to get scanned.

I also got the last 6 at my 2nd trip to a Walmart where they price matched the target price. FYI there is a limit to the amount of point cards you can enter per day, 12 for me. The first Walmart said they would only price match 1 card and not till after 10pm (it was 8pm).

Hope the rest of you CAGs have good luck.

Now I'm hearing some people have been able to ring up the 2400 MS point cards for $10 as well at Target. I believe this would be very YMMV but if those worked why not try the 4000 pints cards while we're at it :D

Also I just thought Id mention this but people where asking the walmart workers to get things out from the glass cases and they put them in a cart next to the cashier then when they went to pay they got the same deal as the ones with stickers. So I guess my Walmarts pretty nice because I heard some Walmarts don't let you get the same price for non stickered games on sell.

You guys have me trying to find a reason to go to Gamestop at midnight, but I can't find one. Where my parents live there is no Target for 50 miles, so they don't get the ad and thus I won't be able to try PM'ing at the Walmart (only major box store in town). Guess I can try at the one near work tomorrow before my shift starts, especially if it seems they are overriding it altogether.

Now to wait and be paranoid about the Amazon Vita bundle start time.

Where can I get Red Dead Redemption GOTY Ed for the best price?

Thanks!

Walmart is selling it for $15 in store only. If that's not an option, Keep your eye out and hope amazon matches it or slips it into a gold box deal.

edit: or if you don't give a Fuck about zombies, or can find the undead nightmare pack for cheap/wait for a sale on it on XBLA/PSN, you can get vanilla Red dead for $10 at newegg.

I was at the Rosemead, CA Target earlier tonight and they had a bunch of 1600 point cards stocked at the registers. I bought the old school ones (the one with the avatar on it) and one of the new designs (as shown in the ad). They all rang up $10. There's still a shitload left

I Got 8 1600 point cards from Target and 3 of them for my friends. I Got the points card not in the ad, but the one with the green and orange on the side with the female avatar on the bottom. Some of them came up $10 while others $19.99. Eitherway the ones that came up $19.99 were overridden and I got some cheap half off points. Love this time of the year.

Just an FYI: The Skylanders Giants Starter pack for Wii U is on sale at toysrus website right now for $50.00.

Not bad if you're looking for it plus another Wii U game, with the buy 1 get 1 40% off.

Was able to get Super Mario Bros U and the Giants starter pack for just over $90 after taxes...

Not the greatest deal, but not alot happening with the Wii U games for this BF.

They had a designated case worker at my Walmart. All but for a horizon I had to get from the case. Took me all of 10 min to get what I needed and to check out.

Can you please help me out trying to get Amazon to PM Red Dead Redemption GOTY!?

Just click on 'tell us about a lower price' in the Product Details part.

Wal-mart has it for $15.00 and Amazon has GTA IV Complete for $14.99 so it's odd they are not doing the same with RDR.

I know we can do it!!!

I wasn't able to go to my nearest store...Thanks!

I went to Walmart at 8 and tried to price match the 1600 cards. The lady did the price match but when the activation part came up it always failed. So some Walmarts will not be able to price match it, I even tried doing it at the front desk and same thing happened. I went to Target at 9:30 central and all they had were the new white 1600 points and they rung up 19.99 I explained that the manager said he would honor it (which he later changed his mind) they told the cashier to honor this just once and refuse if any other costumer that comes. I came here after hearing all the success stories so I went to another Target at 12:50. When I went to the games section all the 1600 points were gone. I walked around trying to see if any were left behind. Sure enough at the front check out lanes there was two left (Old ones with the avatar girl on the cover) I scanned it and it rung up $10 I went to the games section again and asked if any of these cards were left. The manager instanty said NO! which I knew was Bs. I went to the very front of the store to the check out lanes again and every lane had around 2 left. I grabbed all of them and they all rung out 10$ I bought a total of 12 1600 points today. I hope this helps anyone trying to find the cards. I'm almost sure that all the stores are going to put the remaining cards on the back.

Turns out Walmart only has the 360 version of Arkham City for $10. I don't remember Target selling it for $15. Was it the PS3 version that you had? If so, I'm definitely going there for it.

I went ahead and drove back to Walmart to pick up MLB 12 The Show for $15. They still had plenty of RDR-GOTY but i didn't think to grab one, I'm kind of regretting it now. I may go back since it's a 10 minute drive.

Went to Walmart almost four hours after the 8pm doorbusters when I got out of work and managed to get everything I wanted.

Got the second to last PS3 Superslim Bundle and managed to find what I could tell were the last copies of Borderlands 2, Battlefield 3 and Gran Turismo 5 all at the bottom of some carts as they were moving stuff back to the electronics. Successful night id say.

Those of you that braved WM, are you seeing any previously unadvertised games on sale?

Or is it basically the list of games from the OP?

It's a futile effort, even if it's just 2 people reporting the lower price or 200,000. Amazon knows what the prices are for every major online retailer during this time of year. They will decide to either match them or not of their own volition.
