XT14 made my CAG days so much fun in the past and he deserves someone taking over he is doing this a year or more after he left the company. I know for a fact how hard it is to relay info back and forth when you no longer work at a place. The former people leave and new people come and they just can care less and it slowly dwindles to omg why am i bothering anymore but he kept helping far past that i bet..

XT14 you brought that company so much money i really think you deserve internet PR job or something. I hope someone nabs you up for this type of work you got what it takes to get people to like a company and care about the people. I did not like the stores but you kept me buying anyways and that my man is hard to do when i hated the local stores that much.

Sorry rambling a bit but thank you so much and what you did over the years helped me and made many of my days turn to good days when you posted new sweet deals. TY man from the bottom of my heart.

Sadly I don't think any FV employees are CAGs or have any form of access to any of the information like XT14 had. Not to be a Debbie Downer but the scoop on FV deals is likely over.

The Family Video marquee noted "PS3, Wii, 360 games starting at $9.95".

Stopped in and found:

:wii: Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword w/ music CD $19.95
:ps3: Starhawk $12.95
:ps3: Ghost Recon Future Soldier $19.95

There were more $9.95 games there than normal, but some of them I noticed had been there since summer.

I recently received a PM from a corporate family video rep that said they are looking to make their own thread here soon to keep updated weekly. This was within the past few weeks. I'm not sure what their timeline is on getting around to doing this, but for those who enjoyed the updates in the past, there may be some hope for seeing them again in the future.

I hope if this happens that it allows them to keep the online store more in sync as well. I know I was not the only one who was frustrated when prices matched 80% of the time, until the day when the title you were looking for didn't drop in price online properly.

I will keep everyone posted if I get any new information to speak of.

Keep in mind XT that I tried getting that to happen back when we both still worked for the company. Also tried getting them to make it company wide to ship preowned games when asked. I'm sure they are still working on it....

If FV wanted easy Advertising with huge boost in sales they hould do it. Since XT stopped updating i slowly stopped looking at site. It has been months now since i checked site.

I do have a friend that recently was promoted to DM. She's not a gamer but I'll see if she can't figure out a way to keep the thread going.

Looks like FV added a new price point, $12.99. Both SSX and Game of Thrones (360) were $12.99. I know GoT received mediocre reviews at best, but I bit. Story is suppose to be pretty good.

Here are a couple codes that are good until 11/2. I'm pretty sure you can only use one per order.

Free Shipping - XRGXZUVN
10% off - TQQ3CSWD

Shipping is $1.99 per order, so if your order is over $20 go with the 10% code.

Was this a sale? I'm seeing SSX for 19.99 and no sign of Game of Thrones.

I'm going to assume he was referring to in-store. Looks like they still haven't bothered updating prices online when new cuts happen.

Anyone have a good way to remove those dougnut stickers from the discs? I was going to try using heat but I don't want to damage the disc.

A heat gun was what I always used when trying to remove them in the past. The problem is always the glue they leave behind will create kind of a haze when you wipe it off with goo gone or any other adhesive remover.

Well, stopped in tonight looking for new drops. Nothing noticable but found some new B1G1 stickers on some duplicate items for PS3:

FFXIII-2
Deus Ex
Syndicate
Flashpoint: Red River

The spare B1G1 games didn't have a for sale sticker on them but I have been able to get them for $10 each in the past just like it says in the OP. I took Syndicate and Flashpoint to the desk to buy them and was denied. They told me they no longer sell them if they don't have a sale sticker on them. They didn't even look in the computer. Not sure if this is a new policy or if these were just a couple of noobs. Regardless, I left empty handed.

Also saw for 360:
Need for Speed: The Run $12.95

Noted this because I wanted the same game for PS3, but it's still tagged at $19.95.

I peel it off and then use GooGone on a paper towel. Wipe it down with diluted dish soap and water after.

Looks like they finally updated their website a bit for used 360/Wii games. Nothing great with all the other deals going on but I did notice Fortune Street (Wii) for $10 which may interest someone.

"Used games do not include manuals."

What's up with that? That and because it won't have a slipcover, I almost want to pass. Hmm...
