Just a follow up. It looks like Game Exchange's last day is going to probably be this Saturday. They dropped prices on some of the games again too. SNES and NES games are now 70% marked price amount other things.

If theirs anyone on the hunt for a Wii U I found a few in shops today. The Target in Independence on 39th had 3 deluxes (well 2 now, I picked one up) and 3 regs. The Kmart in Independence on Noland and I-70 has one deluxe and 3 regs. And I heard through the grapevine that the Walmart in Raytown have both but I don't know the count.

The K-Mart on Shawnee Mission Parkway and I-35 is closing (again) so all video game stuff is on clearance. Last time I was there a week or so ago clearance percentages were pretty weak (maybe 10-20%?). Might be worth keeping an eye on it.

I didn't check to see if they were somehow excluded or not, but they did have a bunch of Vita consoles in the case.

Dropped by that Kmart today - nothing left worth mentioning, down to 30% off. There's an army of Halo Reach and Epic Mickey LEs (as well as the Xbox 360 game 'Morph' which I'd never seen before in my life). Nothing that couldn't be gotten cheaper elsewhere, all consoles gone.

Vintage Stock is having the annual Memorial Day B2G1 on pretty much everything in the store (except consoles).

They are also having B1G1 for trading cards and Back Issues of comic books.

Kmart at Santa Fe (135th) and I-35 is closing.  Consoles only 10% off so far, but they have a pretty good stack of WiiUs on the shelf and one Vita left (down to $225 with the 10%).  I never could get a bead on the markdown schedule for the last Kmart closing off Shawnee Mission Parkway, but I think it lasted about 2-3 months so I would check middle of next week if you're interested.

I would be tempted to pick up a WiiU, but it's going to need more than a 10% drop.

 

Thanks for the heads up! I'm honestly surprised that store lasted as long as it did...

has anyone seen any stores with decent clearance lately? the kmart by metro north mall used to have alot but now its all gone. the target near there and the target in liberty barely put anything out anymore. i gave up on the sears in antioch mall and the kmart across the street because i never found anything but i might need to go by there sometime if i am in the area, all the decent clearance deals are drying up.

It's been pretty dead around the metro from what I've seen, at least down here on the south side.

 

It's been tough to find any decent deals with a lot of the stores scaling back their media sections.

Well, looks like the K-Mart on Bannister is closing too. Same thing, electronics are at 10% off.

Still quite a few games. Newest thing I saw in the case was Deadpool.

Hardware-wise a couple PS3 bundles, a few black Wiis, a couple 3DSs, and a couple 3DSXLs.

The north side seem to be pretty dead also...  Though I don't get out much.

 

 

The The Wal-Mart on Boardwalk (by Zona Rosa) is clearance out PS3/360 games in preparation for  next gen and I suspect all Wal-Marts are doing so now...  Didn't really see any good deals though.

Has anyone seen any of the clearance console at any of the Targets around the metro?

http://www.cheapassg...xi-ymmv/page-86

 

I know someone in the target thread mentioned the Mission Target, but didn't know if anyone had been seeing them anywhere else.

 

The in-store tracker doesn't show anything for any of the DCPIs I checked, but we all know those can't be trusted.

 

Just curious, I haven't had the chance to poke around.

Independence Target doesn't have anything. They haven't had the models on clearance for quite a while actually.

I started a new thread regarding the topic, but I'll ask it here too. Regarding the Vintage Stocks in the area, does anyone know where they pull trade-in values from? I have some ps2/xbox games I want to get rid of but would prefer to not get .25 per game.

Vintage stock gives a third cash of what they sell the game for. And then if you do credit they give an additional 50%. So, for example...

 

if they sell a game for $12, they give you $4 cash, or $6 credit.

 

At least, that's how I understand it to work. I believe it can vary based on how much demand there is for the games as well.  They do pay much better for ps2 games than gamestop did when they still took them.

The dpci that was initially being bandied about wasn't accurate I think - should be 207-21-0018 (I think, that's from memory) for the MW3 bundle which showed at a number of targets via the checker (and it's possible that the gears 3 bundle shares the same dpci).

 

Mission Target still has a few at 50% off, I'm going to pretend that no one will buy them all week so they'll drop next week.  Haven't been back to the closing Kmart off Santa Fe/I35 yet but I imagine if they still have consoles they should be fairly cheap by now.  I would also expect a new round of clearance stuff at NFM but I'm never in that neck of the woods so I haven't checked.

Do they knock down value if the game is disc only, missing manual, etc?

 

Based on that I'm seriously considering dumping this load of games on them as they aren't moving at all for me.

There's definitely truth in that. When I was clearing out a lot of my PS2/XBOX generation stuff a couple years ago there were several games I was quoted at < $1 on. Weirdly enough I have better luck taking them into Half Price Books than Vintage Stock.

 

I would say if you have some higher profile titles or some harder to find stuff, Vintage Stock is definitely the way to go. But if it's a lot of run of the mill stuff, give Half Price a shot too (assuming you live near one of them).

If anyone here or anyone you know is interested in Magic The Gathering, Yeti Gaming, a TCG store in the STL area, is doing a Standard tournament on Saturday for an Alpha Mox Emerald that sells on the open market for just under $1000. $25 entry fee, standard constructed format with M14 legal.
