Its the last button on the right. You might have to check other scanners if one isn't activating the keypad. A lot of stores only have only one or two that activate. Lately I have noticed that they have been turning all of them off now through.

That doesn't make any sense.  "We don't want knowledgeable customers looking up items they want to buy using numbers that are clearly listed on our website!  We'd rather have them hassling employees to look in the stockroom and get games out of the case to scan!".

I haven't looked at target clearance for years because the milwaukee stores are absolute shit, but i'm looking for Zone of the Enders for PS3 and found that other people were getting it on clearance.

I found a store that still has them in stock, but that doesn't necessarily guarantee that it's been clearanced at all, right?

Sorry i must just be getting to target before you! I mean the last year has been rough, but ive scored some  pretty good deals since!

Right, could still be full price.

Why are we fighting? What part of YMMV do people not understand? I live in a major metro area and travel by about 4 Targets on my way home from work. Some of them have good deals sometimes, some don't. It all depends on the local Target. I got in on the MW3 bundle at half off by checking the inventory tracker....it's either that or drive to each one and see what happens.

The store near me had an Infamous 2 PS3 and an Uncharted 3 (320GB) PS3. 

 

It sucks that neither of them were on sale though.

I don't get the rush to be honest. Had an opportunity to buy the MW3 bundle all week for 50% off and didn't. When PS4 and XB1 launch, its inevitable the prices of the predecessors will go down as well, and with the updated 360 model. I'm ready for a price war, there's zero chance systems are going to languish on the shelves and take up floor space when the new systems arrive. Even 'active' systems like the Vita and Wii U need price drops of they're going to be buried. It really is amazing how much dead space is taken by old Wii and DS games and Wii U and Vita games and demo kiosks. This is NOT going to last when the heavy hitters arrive.

Well the $150 console was trading at GS for $225, plus what the game and extra controller would have fetched, until a few days ago when the base value dropped $50.

I know this isn't part of the of the clearance thread, but got the elusive B2G1 coupon (can't find the other thread) from target today with a new expiration of 9/9/2013. Didnt find anything worth mentioning for clearances games.

 

If they keep extending it I can get GTA V for freeeee.

Not bad I guess, but my total apathy about the state of gaming these days, I wouldn't even know what to do with 100 dollars worth of 'free' credit for $150 and tax.

Buy Amazon credit then buy non-gaming things?  Or buy gas cards, or restaurant cards or cards for any number of things they sell that aren't gaming related.  Well, assuming the price rebounds.

It sucks that neither of them were on sale though. 

One of my closest Target stores still has a 320gb PS Move bundle sitting in their case. I checked it today while I was out. It's still $299.99. I double checked it on the in-store scanners after having the cashier in electronics check with their handheld scanner.

But not everybody is going to run out and buy a $400-500 new system and then pay at least $60 a game right off the bat. I'll probably wait till Sony and MS are ready to call it a day on the PS3 and 360 before I buy either an Xbox One or a PS4. With the backlog I have I could probably wait till the PS5 is out to get a PS4 in all honesty.

Quick question: Does Target do price adjustments on clearance items?

Policy says they don't, but I know a CAG somewhere has figured it out.

I checked Target in Cape Girardeau, MO. No clearance endcap or reduced systems. Haven't seen a clearance game besides a stack of a PS2 WWE game.

Nothing else worth mentioning...

Generally no, if you're lucky they'll let you do a return and rebuy.

Yeah, this. I've done it a few times. Not sure if the return window on clearanced items is limited, though. 

 

Or just buy another one at the discounted price and return the first one you bought.

Just got back and exchanged my 250GB Holiday Bundle with the CoD: MW3 Bundle! Hate the rude service I get sometimes too. No offense but, I'm only asking people to check multiple SKU's, price checks, and double bag. They act like such dicks as if I'm asking them to sell me multiple products cheaper than they sell it and give me a gift card.

 

Anyways, big score! Might trade it in for a good profit but I'm sure Gamestop and Amazon prices are crap now for these.

 

Also got a 2TB Mac HDD from OD for $40! Thank you SlickDeals! Great deals all around.

 

My local store that had the CoD Xbox had another one left. Going to go back next week and see if the price lowers. Hopefully it does and no one buys it so I can price adjust.

 

EDIT: There was also a 4GB Bundle for $179.99 at my local store.

I stopped checking targets around 2010 for clearance. It just seemed like a waste of time and the milwaukee area stores I went to just started giving everything to goodwill so they could charge MSRP for it, or just stopped dropping prices on things in general.

 

Are things better now in general for target clearance? cause I think the last time i bought anything there was a year or more ago. and all i've seen in the last few i've been in is some PS2 wrestling games.

It comes and goes in general and by store.  Around here it's become incredibly dead again after it picked up for a couple months after being beyond dead for a long while.

I wouldn't touch a day one Xbox One after the 360 hardware fiasco (or any other launch console).  MS probably learned their lesson, but never hurts to wait a while to confirm if there are any major issues.  And after the initial launch, there is always a long lag where there are no games released, so doesn't hurt to wait until a much better software library exists.

I re-checked the 320gb PS Move older version slim PS3 bundle today while at Target. Still freakin $299.99. There's only ONE of the newer scanners in my closest Target that even allows you to hit the far right button to bring up the touch screen method to enter the item #'s. It's all the way up the front. I guess just like Kmart they keep disabling the self check so you'll actually get the employees to do something other than bs all day.

Question: if your local Target had a 16 gig iPad marked down to $449.99 as a repackaged item, would you buy it? I'm fairly certain it's the Retina one.
