In Topic: YMMV ToysRUS "Green" Clearance is 50% off or more!

Yesterday, 08:53 PM

it won't be that rare every retailer has it and hell even meijers has it marked to $19.99 and they still have it in stock

In stock now, I'm talking in 2 or 3 years. 

 

My understanding is it sold horribly, so it's a game that might never be repressed or part of any "Nintendo selects" line. Think of something like Metroid Prime Trilogy, or Xenoblade. Sometimes you don't know it's rare, until after it's OOP and all of a sudden people start looking for it. (I lucked out in having a 2nd sealed copy of Metroid Prime Trilogy when it peaked out... and I believe I actually got that from Toys-R-Us for $19.99). 

 

Of course I realize just because it is niche and on a Nintendo platform doesn't mean it would be worth a 2nd or 3rd copy. It could be more Madworld (coincidentally another Platinum games title) than Xenoblade. 

 

I guess I'll just hang onto the one copy. I bought that assuming I'm going to get a Wii-U eventually. No sense in buying 2 or 3 copies when I don't even have the system itself yet.

Picked up Wonderful 101 for $12. I don't even have a Wii-U yet, but I have a pro-controller I picked up for $8 last year (store specific Best Buy clearance), and now Wonderful 101 for $12.  :D/

 

They had 3 copies. Anyone think this game might be one of those that makes a good "investment"? Should I grab the other two? I rarely do that. I just think this might be one of those games could still be worth $50 or even $100 in a few years time if it doesn't get reprinted. 

 

edit:... and I guess I could have gotten them B1G1 40%? So I could have gotten two copies for $19? I probably should have at least done that....I just got the 1 game and walked out.

Oh, I reseached it further after you intially broke down how good the deal could be double dipping but people are struggling with the math. I`m happy with the items & $400 credit. Already decided to flip the kmart credit to walmart credit that way I can turn into pure spendable cash anywhere.

I`ve posted the kmart weekly ads before so if this deal comes around again I`ll max it better next time.

How do you flip credit from KMART to Wal-Mart (or Amazon)? 

 

Kmart sells an assortment of gift cards, but i can't imagine they have Wal-Mart cards?

 

I know it's been easy to switch Best Buy rewards credits to Amazon (using Kindle cards). I didn't know there was a good way with KMART...

Also of note, 

 

I did my last run of gift cards today (to bring me up to 10 needed for PS3) - and I saw 4 PS4's in my KMART that were just put out either yesterday or this morning!!! So check your KMART's they might have gotten fresh stock to use this offer on. 

 

It's mighty tempting to load up on more cards to just get the PS4. But I think I will have to just stick with the PS3 since I have such huge backlog, and hold out for a "special edition" bundle to hit the U.S for the PS4. I told myself I was going to wait for the first really sweet bundle to make my move (ala last gens gunsmoke MGSIV PS3).  Gotta have discipline.  :-k

You're still stuck with $250 worth of gift card, bonus points or otherwise.  Returning the PS3 or whatever item you bought with the gift cards, you're still stuck with KMart gift card money.

Uhhh. Why the hell would I return the PS3? Obviously my entire purpose of committing to a large number of gift cards, is to use those gift cards on the PS3. I wouldn't be stocking up with so many just to be "stuck" with them.

 

I'm buying the PS3 for a reason (because my standalone blu-ray player just died, and my existing PS3 is also on it's last legs... and hell I've always just wanted that blu PS3). Since money is 100% fungible it basically is like getting a $160 PS3, and since I've had my eye on the blue model this is a sweet enough deal for me to be all over it. 

 

Like someone else said, even if KMART sucks ass in it's electronic or games department... there are still the occasional points offers. Worse case scenario I will just use it to buy laundry detergent, shampoo, soap, household items... or whatever necessities I normally need to buy anyway. $60 or $80 is not too much to be "stuck" with. It will be very easy for me to use efficiently.
