Found Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance - Nintendo 3DS on clearance for $10.08, marked as an online item :)


Seen that a few times "online item" at my store and have no clue what it is. Most of the time they are sold as is too.

I actually saw an english/spanish version of Cinderella marked "as is" for $8.56, didn't purchase it because I already have the gold version, also saw an "as is" Battleship the Video Game for $8.56 while back but passed on that as well.

I did however a few weeks back found an "as is" copy of How to Train Your Dragon 3D :br: for $8.56, didn't have the slip but I wasn't going to complain :)

People whining about having to do their job is annoying. Hence you no longer have a job and people buy most of their reading materials from the internet. Fuck off and go work at McDonald's now.

Best Buy managed to out-Gamestop Gamestop. Good show. :applause:

Nothing in Grand Forks, ND but 15 copies of Shawn White

A ton of copies here too for $8, one store had at least 30.

I don't understand how clearance works, does Target send these to random stores or something?

Picked up another Rayman Origins for vita if anyone is still looking for it. I also found my hidden stash of the sony minidv tapes in the magazine rack, just proves nobody goes through the magazines (as I did it Monday this week), and loss prevention didn't spot me dropping it in there. Of course people these days are looking for sd cards, and compact flash. Left 4 Dead Game of the Year Edition for 360, was gone since someone thought 13.98 was a deal (to me it isn't since it's been out so long).

Finally picked up the pulse elites I've been stalking for 3 weeks for $44.98. I was surprised they lasted that long on clearance. Also picked an electric razor for $57.xx marked down from 229.

I had the same question last week, and someone was nice enough to explain it to me a few pages back. While 'as-is' items are often online returns, he said that KH was a special exception. For some reason, when the associates scan that particular game with their handheld units, the UPC doesn't come up, so they are basically just left to make up a price. Oddly enough though, he said if that UPC is scanned at an actual register, it will come up full price.

I found 7 copies last week for $7.01, and I knew something had to be up; I can't imagine 7 online returns of that game in particular to one store. So some of you, like me, are basically just getting extremely lucky, as a result of a software glitch and benevolent markdown associates! ;)

If anyone can get me one of the Pulse Elite wireless headsets at the $44.98 price point, I'd be much obliged!

Man I'm depressed. I saw tons of the 32GB vita cards for $30 or whatever it was and passed. Went back a day later and they are all gone... Didn't know how expensive those were :(

Now I just ordered a vita and realized it doesn't come with a card... Kicking myself big time.

Just return using your old receipt. Ive been doing this with some other clearance items recently without any issue.

Also saw the Move sharpshooters for $11.98, but didnt pick any up. Revelations was still $9.98 and Mercenaries $14.98.

Asked customer service at my store, was told I couldn't get it adjusted.

I think what he was saying is that he bought a second item then used the old receipt to return the new item.

Saw five of the 16GB Vita cards for $30 at the 15 mile and Van Dyke store, they're in the case with the Vita systems. The deal's nice still but not quite as hot with Amazon currently selling them for ~$45.

Picked up

Reality Fighters - PS Vita $5.06 (as is sticker)
Ridge Racer - PS Vita $7.56 (as is sticker)
Rayman Origins - PS Vita $8.98 (clearance) - 207 20 0848
Street Fighter vs Tekken - PS Vita $11.98 (clearance) 207 20 0094

Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D (3DS) $14.98

Don't own a vita (yet), grabbed anyways (and for all I know a game or two is on PS+ for free), store had several Street Fighter vs Tekken left and Rayman Origins but I only bought 1 of each.

So i'm up for suggestions of keeping, trading or simply returning to the store (except for the 3DS title, I'm keeping that). Did not find any memory at my store on clearance, did find a Turtle beach headset for 360 that looked like it was repacked, for $29.9x . May wait and see if it stays and drops price.


I'm quoting this for reference. It has a Target SKU number I need.

Currently playing:

icon_snes.gif- Nothing, 11m9gn4.png- Nothing
:3ds:- Sonic Battle (GBA), :psp:- Nothing
:ps3:- Nothing, atari_jaguar.png- Nothing, Pippin01.gif- Nothing
Wii_U_platform_icon.png- Beyond Good & Evil (GCN), 20g0cxd.png- Nothing

YMMV should refer to if they are in stock at my local store, not the price, which I thought was reduced nationally (as is same price at every store if they have it, hence the SKU)

Even if you misunderstood what YMMV means in this thread, the OP clarifies further by stating that prices may be higher or lower at your store.

I fail to see how you made this mistake... even if you read one maybe two (depending on whats going on) pages of this topic, you would see that people are constantly reporting different prices / unique offers. Like with all the Biohazard talk you would think you would pick up on the MSRP, $13, $9, $5 differences between posts and see it's not universal.

Even if you misunderstood what YMMV means in this thread, the OP clarifies further by stating that prices may be higher or lower at your store.


In their defense, it's at the bottom and really should be at the top.

@ Kovorkian

Thats how I've always read it.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Also in their defense, YMMV technically means "your mileage may vary" where as gas should be the only factor into cost.

HOWEVER, the term has since evolved into "Your Market May Vary" and which case prices / availability can be different.

Has nothing to do with Target. Only days things don't get marked down on time is when the store is closed.

Actually a Holiday would be even more reason to mark things down as there will be a lot more traffic than normal.

YMMV technically stands for your mileage may vary but the phrase has evolved to mean "results may differ" for anything in life.

it does not stand for your market may vary.

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.
