Thanks for the heads up. I haven't worked at Target for the last 4 years so never knew that they changed their policy. I checked the link that you provided me with their price matching policies and the biggest thing that I was confused about it is in the exclusions part it state that it excluded clearance items. So would that mean the clearance items that I wanted from online would be up to the manager to price match?

Somewhat related to clearance, so here goes. I saw a mention of the ME3 360 CE being $20 in the old thread. I can confirm it is, but ps3 is still $80. My question is does the CE have a different set of discs than the regular one? I'd pick one up if they are the same and just trade the discs to GS, but if they are different I'd keep them. (all I am interested in is the steelbook, not the game)

I'm a bit anal about unique ce discs though. (like ME2 and Oblivion 5th Ed. Had)

Saw like 15 copies of FIFA soccer for vita for 14.98 and I also picked up an element LCD TV 19" for 32 bucks.


FIFA Soccer was 9.99 at 3 targets. Picked up Sims on 3DS for $5, werid thing is it was sitting next to 3 other Sims that were priced $10 and rang up for $10.

They will not match clearance, they never match clearance between stores or online.

Some people have reported getting it matched in the old target clearance thread (XX) and the old flip thread, however it is highly YMMV, as they are not supposed to match clearance

I'm gonna take a guess and guess that those are leftovers from Black Friday when they had 50" Westinghouses for $350.

I've never seen Black Friday doorbusters have leftovers at the end of the day, but maybe they just found these in a warehouse somewhere :)

Saw a bunch of sims 3 for 3ds for 4.98 (almost picked one up but heard it was a bad game). Still may just for 5 bucks, its got to be better than steel diver (which i also got for 5 bucks but from best buy). I picked up a 360 media remote for 9.98. Ive always hated using the controller for netflix and when streaming from my PC. Glad I got the remote for cheap but I do wish it had a separate media center button. Oh well, just takes an extra step or two.

I guess normally 599. I found on sd ppl there said some 399 or 349. Also there are supposedly 2 different versions 1 pick 1 I am 1 that is a slim I happen to get the slim. Got the ecoslim. People also said you're not the greatest TV but you can get a 1 plan for only 30 dollars more. I only grabbed it honestly to replace my recently cracked screen for now. I figure if it last most of the warranty I'm in good shape. It sucks that it only has 2 HDMI and no USB. Just waiting to mount it when I have another day.

Screw my target

Check every 1-2 weeks to see if they ever clearance anything, and they haven't for months.

As a guy who has shopped Target clearances for probably coming up on 15 years now, I can tell you, they ain't what they used to be.

Now, maybe it is just a cyclical thing but I suspect not, and that Target has gotten more sophisticated in their inventory control practices...and it is not just video games, but a lot of other areas too from what I have seen.

They just simply don't seem like they have as much left over crap they need to clearance like they did 4-5 years ago.

I honestly can't remember the last decent wide-spread VG clearance at my local Targets (and I have 3 that I regularly hit) where it used to be a monthly event it seems.

I've built up a collection of around 60 games. 90% of those were from Target. I can't recall the last good clearance stash. I live 1 mile from my usual Target that I visit at least 3 times a week.
I've also noticed that other sections are light on great clearance stuff. There are clearance items but nothing like a year ago or especially a few years ago.

A big part of it seems to be not over stocking and making more of an effort to not simply clearance everything in stock to replace it with new stock of the same game (that happened a lot before). Plus, all the Target's in the Twin Cities seems to have a policy of donating clearance items to Goodwill before it hits 75% off in many cases now, not always, but quite often. Go to any Goodwill here and you'll see tons of items with Target clearance stickers on it blacked out. :lol: They must have figured out the tax write-off for these items is typically better than the 75% off price.

It also seems the older/more established a target is, the less clearance it has. Like they figure out the local trends better over time and adjust ordering accordingly. Still plenty of good clearance at two of the newer targets in my area - the past 6-8 months I've had some of the best (non video game) pickups I've had in years.

So I only found a few things yesterday when I was in, not really anything too amazing, but here goes.

207-00-1106 XBOX Kinect Mount (clip) $9.98 from $19.99

Transformers: Dark of the moon Bluray 3D/Bluray/DVD/Digital Copy (I think? Don't have a # for this one) AS-IS (but looked fine) $9.06

057-01-0209 Phillips Action Fit Headphones for $49.98 from $99.99

008-04-0666 Hello Kitty Alarm Clock (Projection?) $8.98 from $29.99, a lot in stock.

008-04-6660 Hello Kitty Alarm Clock $4.48 from $14.99, a lot in stock.

I guess if you believe in superstitions then Hello kitty is evil with 666 in each SKU, lol.

but that's about it besides what was already mentioned, hugo and things like that, unless you want a bunch of iphone cases only for iphone 5 or ipad/kindle cases.

Probably Ratchet & Clank All 4 One, which I managed to snag for 9.98 a few nights ago. I wanted to wait for 70% but didn't figure the two copies left were gonna make it. In addition, even though I HATE that this square is on the insert itself and not a sticker on the plastic wrap, it includes a hopefully-still-valid voucher for R&C Quest for Booty, "A $15 Value!" and "Target Exclusive!" according to the case.

Also scored Hugo on Blu-ray for $8.98 the other day; the girlfriend was pleased with this one.

Also, thanks for adopting the thread Kovorkian. Look at our baby Target Clearance thread, moving up in the world ;)

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

It's a Target exclusive thing, apparently.

Well, crap. Think getting in touch with Sony would get me anywhere? I only bought a PS3 this last Black Friday, so I'm not familiar with the viability or lack thereof in this situation.
