Can you add clearance items to cart and checkout online for store pick-up?

K.. I just bought one on sale for $30 at Best Buy 2 days ago and opened it. Can I price adjust this somehow?

Yes, I just did that last night and then the price dropped. Gonna cancel (or just not pick up-it auto cancels after a day or two) and just pick up two at the new price

Thank you OP.

 

Have you guys been using best buy giftcards with any success? I just used a giftcard to order a controller, but I'm dreading that they'll send me some kind of notice that it didn't work. I remember CAGs talking about this a while back and I'm not sure if Best Buy resolved the error. I'm rich in BB credit, but poor with actual money until payday.

Can you hook it up to a PC?

 

Not really, it looks like there's been some hacking done so it sort of works if you have bluetooth and the right software but it's not going to be anywhere near a proper PC controller.

 

Was able to order a PS3 Nav controller over the phone with a gift card for store pickup for $5. Thanks OP.

 

Now I have 2x Move, 2x Nav, Sharpshooter, Wheel, and a 4 port charge dock. Since the PS4 can use the Move items (no word on the accessories like Sharpshooter and wheel though) I figured this wasn't a bad $5 investment.

 

And barely a game worth using them on. ;)

 

Thank you OP.

I ordered a copy of Metroid Prime 3 last night with a GC and went through fine.  The errors and cancellations are almost always about it being out of stock but the website not updating right.

Nice... got one for 10.99... I may have to drive an extra 10-15 miles to get it, but its worth it. I don't even mind that it is white since I have the black console

I have, yet, to find a PS3 racing game that couldn't use the wheel, fyi. You probably know this, but just reassign the move controller to controller #1. Also, I like boxing in 3D with Sports Champions 2, but it makes my arms sore. Lol.

Called customer service and they said they would not adjust the price to match the same store's clearance price. I'm curious if I go to the store and returned the controller I paid $30 for...and then asked to purchase it again as an Open Box item for $15...wonder what they'd say.

Did you order it online for store pickup? If so...the store can't do much sadly, but does the store have any more in stock? Why not buy another one and return the old one? You can always call the store and see if they'll do anything. Is it the store on 441 in Boca? I haven't been there in sooooooooo long, not since they had a N64 display lol.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Big thanks Lobstah, I've been wanting a Move setup for a while and thanks to you I picked up an essentials set, another wand, 2 nav controllers, and a charging base for $45 after using a $5 rz cert(receipt showed "total  savings: $138.00").

 

Now to see how Deadly Premonition plays with Move...

I bought it in Coral Springs in store the other day. I told the lady on the phone I'd just buy the clearance one and then return it with the other receipt and she said it should work, but then when I tried checking out with the clearance controller online it said due to high demand the item is unavailable.

My local store I work at has the Wii U controller so even though I don't have a Wii U yet I went ahead and bought one when I do get one. Ended up getting it for under $7 with employee discount and free $5 reward zone certificate I had. Gonna go to the store near my wifes work later to find the $2.99 black cradle and the PS Move bundle thats on clearance for $16

I would call back, I know it says they do not price match clearence items, but you bought it two days ago or so and it's still on clearance. I feel that is rather reasonable.

Thanks so much. Finally managed to get one of those and for $10.99 after searching for a couple of months. Didn't know you could search clearance on the website and my ignorance ended up saving me about $15! Will mario kart and smash bros support 4 of these pro controllers? If so may pick up another two to have four player Mario Kart 8 with no motion controls necessary.

I'm gonna go by and see if they still have the stand & cradle for $2.99 there and I'll just talk to a manager. I know it's $15, but not sure it's really worth the gas and my time to argue with people about it. I'm always really nice but the people that work in the stores around here...ugh.. I figure I already got it on sale for $30, so why push my luck. We'll see.

I placed 3 orders for the Wii U Pro controller so that I can have 4.  I hope all 3 go through because it's supposed to be limited per customer.  I'm also hoping I can bring my receipt in from about 2 weeks ago from buying one there at $23.99.  That's if I can even find my receipt.  Thanks a lot OP!

If you used your reward zone account they can look up your receipt on the computer so you don't need to technically have it

Hmmm... If only these were black, I'd get a second @ $9.99. Atleast my OCD let me get a white one for my future Wii U.

 

Maybe I'll look up skins or get that blue one for $6.99.

Sadly, the only store in my area carrying one is a bit too far off the beaten path. I probably won't be able to pick up the white Wii U pro controller. Which is sad because I have the white Wii U, and needed a pro controller for Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

 

I am still very grateful to the original poster, though. Those prices on Move controllers and accessories are insane, and I picked up a ton of them. I might just stop by another Best Buy on my way home and pick up a few more. I know some people who would probably like having their own set at their place.
