Changing this to a FAQs for those that need some help getting these deals.


When I order online it shows X price for in store, but changes to Y price at checkout, what gives?
You can only do in store pickup for the clearance price if the item is available for pick up that day. If it isn't the price will be the online price instead. Sometimes the item will be shipped to that store if it is no longer at that store. It may adjust to the clearance price at pickup but it could also charge you full price for it.

Can I buy the item at one store and return / rebuy at another?
Yes but it is up to the stores discretion to allow you to get it for that stores in store price. If it is an online order, they are supposed to return it to the warehouse it came from so you will not be able to buy it back. It's YMMV on employees following this rule though.

Can I price match a Walmart clearance item at X store?
No. No store, including Walmart, PMs clearance prices. YMMV on getting PMs for these items but it is against every stores policy to do so.

I want to price match this clearance item at another Walmart, will they allow me to?
No WM (or any retailer) PMs the prices of other local stores.

BS said X of an item is in stock, but the employee said it isn't at my store, why did they lie to me?
They didn't. Sometimes items are misplaced, stolen, or the count is off. Employees are not all over the massive stock room nor do they know where every item is. Don't harass an employee or come on here saying they are keeping it for themselves. Sometimes, an item truly isn't in the store.

Why is BS always wrong?
BS is not wrong. Their information is directly from WM systems. Just like all stores, inventory and prices may be wrong for a certain store. Do not rely only on BS.

How do I find clearance items?
Go to the store and scan items, check SD, check this thread. Actually look for something you want.

Where in the store are clearance games located?

Clearance items in general can be on shelves, in dedicated clearance sections or in the stock room. For games specifically, they will be in the videogame glass cases, videogame value game isle or dedicated clearance section. It's random and depends on that stores layout / management.

What is the SKU or item number of this item?
Look it up yourself. There is a search function on this site, on BS site and you can Google the item almost 100% of the time. No one needs to spoon feed you this information and we shouldn't have 20 people asking for the same information that was already posted.


Acronyms to know.
WM = Walmart
PM = Price Match
TRU = Toysrus
BS = Brickseek
SD = Slickdeals

Something that puzzles me is I actually saw some empty 3 cents tag racks in this last round of clearance. I don't get why if they change the price to 3 cents, it's been marked to pull & they pull it. Why do they leave the 3 cen tag up or even bother to change it in the first place? Your pulling/pulled the game, your not selling it anymore, why do you need to advertise the price? 😆

Because they don't have any common sense & we see people do incomprehensible things every day.

Did they actually have all those or did you just see some empty spots with shelf tags? If it was around here some of those would have been cleaned out awhile ago.

Also, which Assassin's Creed is that? The Ezio Collection?

Every one of those games were in stock BUT Nier. Ezio collection. The photos are too large for me to attach and post here

Wow lucky! Star Ocean is wiped out at every store I've been to & I must've visited about 20 different locations! I did snag a Fire Emblem Engage for $20 though, that title has been either $40 or $20 at various stores when I'm lucky to find a store in stock!

Don't forget Gotham Knights, soooo many Gotham Knights left around me. I don't think even one copy has moved since the clearance.
 
If anyone wants any of the titles I listed, let me know and I’ll stop by to see if they’re there. You’ll only pay cost plus whatever shipping requires.

I didn’t cop anything from that list that caused a sellout so the stuff may still be there, granted it was 3 days ago

Found some PS5 versions of One Piece Odyssey for $10... and though it wasn't priced $10 as with other stores, some $22 copies of No Man's Sky (Switch). I probably should have grabbed a copy of Odyssey as I know my oldest son (who is caught up on the anime) wants to give that a try.

Yellow sticker or shelf tag? My store had it for $10 yellow stickered a couple months back, but it was the only store around at that price! It seemed worth it and I picked it up.

Regular yellow sticker on the shelf. I was kind of shocked to see it and took a picture.
 
Dang I would have snatched that up too.
Same 😭 all I see is garbage. The wu long at mine store been $30 a couple of month after the game released. You'll think it would've dropped by now but na. A lot of games is outta the glass cage with pricing. That store is unorganized, the other one has a huge box forgot what it was infront of a portion of games couldn't see which had me suspicious
 
It could also be in the printout for the shelf called a planogram sp? And or they were told not to refill the shelf or remove tags currently.
They do sometimes. It would never tell them not to not refill a shelf. But if it were a game not to be sold and was marked to 3 cents, it would likely not be on the updated planogram to avoid confusion.
 
Got fire emblem engage at a Walmart in palm beach for $20. It's no 3 cents but if your store didn't dump them like they were supposed to it might be back in the system. They also had several star allies for $30 but I didn't buy it and that's not news.

As far as I have seen at several locations here it is Fire Emblem Three Houses (and Three Hopes) that was/has been marked for salvage, but not Fire Emblem Engage.

It went 3 cents at a few of my local stores and they wouldn't sell it (which is fine, they're just doing their job.) At this one it was stashed away like the other stores but it rang up. Makes me almost want to put the effort in and go back to the store that had tons of advance wars and Bayonetta 3 pennied out. But that's like an hour north of me and it's my busy season

If it was $.03, its not getting reverted or unrestricted from sale
 
Did Cyberpunk 2077 get recalled or something? Went to get a copy that was clearance tagged in May for $13something and the cashier said the register wasn't allowing them to sell it. They must have had atleast a dozen copies on the shelf too.

I would guess they were suppose to go to salvage at that store and its not in the system anymore.

EDIT - I thought this was the Target thread. I don't know if Walmart does the same as Target with the salvage process.

Found The Goonies Board Game at my Wal-mart for $13 today.
Still full price on the site, but adding the link to show what I’m talking about.


Not bad. I found it on clearance at Target awhile back so I have this one in my collection already.

Speaking of which, I noticed at the Target stores in my area that there currently seems to be a clearance going on on a bunch of board games. Saw Indiana Jones: Sands of Adventure, The Lord of the Rings Adventure Book Game, and Star Wars Deckbuilding Game to name a few.

Dang, nice… how much was Indy, if you recall?

I'm not sure but I want to say it was $17.49? It was currently 50% off, I know that much for sure. I'm thinking perhaps it may go to 70% off soon?

edit: well Indiana Jones is $30 on Target.com so maybe it was $15 and I'm confusing it with The LOTR which is $35 regular price.
