The digital ads are up, but when are we getting paper ads? I want to try to PM the misprint of Gamestop's PS3 that's on sale. I want to get the slim for $200, not the superslim. Also, can somebody upload the screenshot of that misprint PS3? I can't upload the one that's on SD.

Sounds like you have bigger problems if you can't ask your *ahem* "manager" that.

Restriction usually applies to bundle deals.

You seem to not want to believe anything so just don't bother with layaway or PMing and brave going to the store or try amazon.


My main concern is amazon matching walmarts borderlands 2. Is fall of cybertron only for 360?

If you work at TRU customer service, and didn't want to get fired, couldn't you, I dunno, ask the store manager instead of some random guy on the internet?

That's awesome. I'll take the walmart ad in too. Last year Walmart didn't PM. I'll still go to kmart turkey day morning. Too bad about the (off) Target flub up in their ad.

Has anyone played Forza Horizon? How is it? I've been thinking of getting a racing game, may get a sim and an arcade. Seeing as Horizon is going to be 15...im tempted.

i really hope i can get a PS3 bundle at gamestop for $200 on black friday. i will be going one hour before it opens i hope i can get it


I'm in the same boat. However, I've decided I'll try Amazon first and if that doesn't work I'll see how TRY works out (plus the free controller). If all those fail then I'll hope for GS. GS opens after TRU so hopefully I will win with one of those 3.

That's bullshit. There's more then one manager and there's also other people in charge of the service desk whom aren't the manager. Plus no matter what, if you're working service desk no matter what the store, it's gonna suck anyways.

I finished it last week. Its about half-way between a sim and an arcade racer. Loved it!

Yes, I've played it. It is worth $15. Campaign isn't too tough or long, but it is pretty fun even to just cruise around. It's a mix, so it may be what you want.

-I really want to get NFS Most Wanted. How is that?
- I really want to get on that Old Navy deal, but there's aalso the Toys R Us BO-G40% deal.
-I also want to get a new 360, but my old one is still good after all these years. I already have Skyrim, and I'm not a fan of Forza.
-I bought a new PS3 last Black Friday, so no need for the slimmer one.

So aside from Most Wanted, I guess that's it.

Most Wanted got really positive reviews. I didn't really like it. I was expecting something closer to the original NFSMW. It turned into more Burnout than Need For Speed. Whether that's good or bad is up to you. If you liked Burnout, this is a good game. Don't expect it to be the original NFSMW.

Cool. I guess I can't go wrong at 15 dollars anyway on a game so new. I thought NFS: Most Wanted was okay, but I don't really like the super-arcadey, turn-the-corner-easily-at-150 type feel it has, while I haven't really been into the depth of sim racers either. Horizon may be just what I'm looking for.

Well I would imagine that the managers communicate, and he doesn't want to irritate one and have that situation reach the other(whether formally or informally). On top of that, he doesn't feel the reward is worth the risk, so he's trying to mitigate the risk by asking on a forum specializing in deals. Nothing wrong with that.

And though the store may have a co-manager(who usually gets paid less), assistant manager, etc., usually there is a manager who has more authority than the others, and, thus, immediate authority over the whole store..

I Still fail to see the risk. There are at least 2-3 managers in a store and about 3 or so co-managers. They're operating a store with many new hirees and are dealing with constant screaming customers and Black Friday, the busiest retail time of the year. Who, what or why would make it a deal to remember such a small question and IMMEDIATLY report it to the big boss? The story makes no sense and there is no game to play. Someone there who isn't "the main manager" will know the answer because there has been similar deals like this before where the advertisement states one normal price game and one of equal or lesser value will be cheaper and it's not like everyone who works there that isn't season isn't going to know the answer.

Cool, that's good to know.

Speaking of Walmart, I was able to put the three games I previously mentioned (XCOM [:ps3:], Forza Horizon, and Spec Ops [:ps3:]) in layaway, and I didn't have to pay the $5 layaway fee--just $16.95 for the minimal deposit. I asked if they would be open after 9am on BF, and the woman who helped me said yes.

Hopefully this will work. ;)

So if I put the games I want (Uncharted 3, RDR, and Gran Turismo) on layaway and pick them up Friday I will only have to pay the BF price?

From the Director of Communications and Community Relations at Walmart.
Layaway will automatically give you the sale price during Black Friday.
Price Match any Local Competitor's Black Friday Ad at any register.

iheartthemart.com/walmart-black-friday-deals


  • Walmart Layaway is supposed to be open from 9am to 9pm on Black Friday.
  • Walmart Black Friday “Special Buy” items will have different bar codes for the most part so items like TV’s, computers, blu-ray players, and movies will most likely not be able to use the Layaway Black Friday strategy. It will work on games and toys because those items should not have the special bar codes.
  • Competitor Black Friday items that Walmart carries will be able to use this strategy. For example: Target has model XOXO in their Black Friday Ad and Walmart carries model XOXO, you can put that item on Layaway and Price Match on Black Friday provided the sale time has not ended. It will have to be deleted to get the lower price.
  • Do not confuse start times with end times. Walmart will have 3 sales going on at the same time, they may run out of stock but the sale is still running. If your item is in Layaway it is in stock. Events 1, 2, 3 end at 11:59pm Friday night.
  • The register is what determines what price the item is sold at, if an item is in Layaway you do not technically buy it until you pay off the layaway item. The register automatically gives you the sale price if you close it out during a sale period. So do not worry about deleting items from layaway.
