Saw this on Slickdeals. Ad for Fry's? No Fry's near me, but good news for those with it close.

*edited* Guess it might not really be 29.99, but the ad could be interpreted as such for a pricematch maybe.

that ad seems kinda tricky tricky. I think the 29.99 is for shadow hearts:FtNW. It doesn't say the price for KH2 just when it will be avaiable. look at the entire ad

Yeah, if it said $29.99 EACH then it would count. You could try PMing at other stores though...

I am real tempted to print that out and try to PM at Circuit City.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

I agree
I doubt KH2 will be 29.99.
Shadow Hearts: FtNW for 29.99 is a good price BUT I'm not sure if it is worth the 1 hour driving time (30 min to and then 30 min back).

Hmmmm, Acid 2 for $29.99 too.

Hopefully, Outpost ships this week so I won't have to PM this ad.

No way! That has to be for SH:FTNW.

I'd be quite upset if they did have it for that price...because there isn't a Fry's within thousands of miles of me. :(
Hi...

I am in agreement. You'll notice in my Fry's thread, I specifically listed Kingdom Hearts II as "No Price Listed". The $29.99 is clearly the pricing for Shadow Hearts and should not be taken as the price for Kingdom Hearts II as well.

Also, please note that so far ONLY the San Jose area Fry's have listed Kingdom Hearts II at all. None of the other locations have included it in their ads as of yet.

If I were to take a guess, I'd expect Fry's to offer it somewhere between $39.99 - $47.99. My hope is $39.99, but I would expect it to be closer to the $47.99 pricing since neither BB or CC have it on sale.

Is there a place to get the Los Angeles area ads?

I highly doubt it'll be $29.99.

There would be some sort of "Low Price Guarantee" arrow price aimed directly at the $29.99.

I'm expecting either $39.99 or full price.

I'm convinced this store "Fry's" is completely fictional. I've never seen it, never met someone who's shopped there, and never held an ad. Something's fishy about this place.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

29.99 or 49.99 I will have this game on launch day :bouncy:. I hope it's 39.99 though (or less). It does seem like a very well done ad though (thinking it will be one thing but end up being another).

I wonder if the idots at Bestbuy would PM this even though there isn't a Frys in our state, and Ac!d 2 as well.

For those looking for an actual deal, I believe CompUSA has it for $39.99 this week. That's the flyer I'll be taking to my local Best Buy for a PM.

Would CC let you buy more than one on a price match? If so, I'd hook some people up since my little bro wants this game badly.

Oddly enough, one of Fry's stores in the SD area (San Marcos, to be exact) is Atlantis themed. They've got a giant fish tank right where you walk in.


Does anybody know if Fry's (B&M) does rainchecks?
