I was Staple today and manage to snag last copy of SSFIV thanks to 50% clearance. I am not sure if the clearance is only for 360 or both PS3 & Xbox360. It is definitely YMMV. Good luck tracking a copy.

That's totally my pricepoint. Too bad for me that most Staples in my area completely suck!

Can anyone from Quebec confirm this? I went to my "Bureau en Gros" (Quebec's Staples!) and they said there was no sale on clearance games!

Very strange...unless the dumbass didnt know what she was talking about!

Also I saw Alan Wake on clearance. There are few copies left at Bridgeport Staples. Regular price $54.99. 50% Clearance $27.50. Good luck finding a copy.

Apparently neither does mine (Oakville)... Ran out as soon as I saw the Alan Wake price, still $59.87

Nice deal!

My local ones only ever do 25%. :(

additional clearance markdowns are ALWAYS ymmv. They are manager's choice. My store never goes higher than an additional %15 :(

This almost seems like a pricing error, like someone getting SSF4 and SF4 mixed up. I guess not so much, with Alan Wake at 27.50 as well. Great deal for anyone who finds them.

I check at my nearest Staples (Northern Anjou) and the one at Marché Central (Montréal). Everything scanned at the regular price.
Did anyone in Montreal have any luck with this thing ?

I tried for the SSF4 at my local Staples and it rang in at the regular price of $40 as well.

You actually have to ask them about an additional 25%-50% off. They have to input it manually when you checkout, because, like the above posters said, each store's manager decides, so the game will always scan at regular price, since the percentage off isn't nation-wide.

Reading this just makes me jealous. I hate reading these deals when the store is closed and I can't call them.

Yeah, this is a thread that will lead to a lot of disappointment. Congrats to the OP for a great score, but in my experience, very few Staples stores offer that degree of discount.

The Staples nearest me often gives 50% off on Clearance but seems to exclude clearance games as a rule (50% off this clearance table only!!!)

Boo-urns

I'm still going to check a couple of stores regardless :)
