#14373144 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by ndukechi on 26 January 2021 - 01:08 AM in Video Game Deals

I’ve not found any of the games on clearance. It seems like my store hasn’t clearanced many of them out yet. Even some of the 3DS games are still full price and not lowered.

I guess I’ll have to try to check brickseek every day or 2 in the hopes I can grab them once they do decide to drop the price.

Is there a specific day Wal Mart typically does price drops for clearance items?

If anyone has any extras they are looking to sell at a small profit send me a PM and let me know what you have.

Usually Monday or Tuesday, but there is so much clearance going on in so many different departments that prices could go down any weekday.  Weekend markdowns are much rarer.  Would just check brickseek every morning so you can catch the changed price first.

Went to a number of stores today.  Some said sold out and some said stock.  Had the best luck at the stores that said sold out.  Found Tokyo :switch: ($5), Xenoblade :switch: ($10) and Quantic Dream :ps4: ($5).

Also found Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 :360: ($.03) and

Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe :360: ($.03).

 

A lot of the other notable Nintendo ones have yet to drop at my stores, but did see a number of copies so should have a chance.

According to Brickseek only 2 of the 8+ Walmarts in my rough area (2 that are furthest away) have Xenoblade for $10, the rest are full price.  Is there a chance that they are all reduced to $10 and Brickseek just doesn't see that?  Would I be wasting my time driving to my nearest one?

Brickseek price is usually 99% correct.  If there are some in stock close by, I would just wait until the price drops.  Check each day so you hopefully see it first.

The R-rated movie trick was how some would get around Walmart’s system alerting the associate at the self-checkout station. As I recall, you took your three cent games to checkout, along with (at least) one other other that will certainly be flagged as needing an associate’s help: people reported being successful with things such as R-rated movies and beer (since they require proof the consumer is over 18). The trick was to scan the alerting item first: the associate would come over, verify the item and your age in the POS, and then allow you to proceed. At that point, you could scan the 3¢ games without fear of being stopped again (WM’s system apparently only required one “pass” to allow those alerting items to go through unmolested), and the transaction would end painlessly. Attempting to scan the $0.03 games first, or before another alerting item, would cause the associate to take a good long look at your receipt and wonder why your video game was ringing up for cheaper than a pack of gum in the 1950s. Of course, here in CA we couldn’t use alcohol since self-checkout won’t let you scan it, but most R-rated movies worked. I also heard guns, knives, other weapon-like items and essentially anything that required an ID like medicine would trigger the system, but I myself only ever tried movies. Anyone please feel free to correct me if I’m misremembering any of this!

Yep.  I just used R rated games like the Wolfenstein ones.
