Target - Southwestern, Pennsylvania

I noticed today that Target has set up an end-cap with several PS2 titles that range from $9.99 to $12.99.

The ones I can remember are Blade 2, WHRA Racing and Wrath of Cortex.

There were maybe three other titles that didn't interest me. Sorry.

Happy hunting guys & gals.

How do you go about using price scanners on the printed bar codes? Do you ask an employee to do scan them, or is there some way to scan them yourself?

About the 0.00 thing: I went to my local Target (Tuscaloosa, AL) and scanned Gungrave (one was not in the glass case, 6 or 7 were) and it came up at 0.00. I asked the store clerk about it, he scanned it at the register, and it came up at 0.00 again. He told me that when this happens, it is salvage stock and is sold at 90% off of the last sale price. He told me that the last price they had for it was $12.99, so at 90% off, I was able to buy it for $1.29!! Ask about this at the Targets near you, you might be able to get a game cheaper than cheap. :D

You scan them yourself.

The first post does not answer my question. Having not worked in retail, this question may seem really stupid but I have no idea how to scan them myself. How do you go about doing this?

There are some "scan-it-yourself" price check units in various places around the store. If the games are loose, grab a handful, walk over, and go scan-happy. If you are curious about prices of games locked behind the glass and do not want to ask an employee to scan each title once, do the UPC trick described in the first post and take your own printout of barcodes to these scanners and enjoy the funny looks people give you when you pull a sheet of paper loaded with barcodes out of your pocket.

And the question from the "uniformed security gaurd" about what you're doing. Be honest and they don't mind. It only happened to me once, and I do this multiple times a week, at multiple targets, so it's not too likely to happen to anyone else, except maybe minx. ;)

You're probably going to have to wait until about January to start picking up the clearance deals. These that are left are pretty much summer left-over product that's being cleared out. Chances are that if your targét opened today, they probably never would have had any of this stuff in stock.

Looks like a deal at all targets (but not all variants available at all stores), Lexar Media in 32 and 64 MB sizes is on clearance. Available in Memory Stick, Compact Flash, and Smart Media.

I got a 32 meg CF for $14.50.... (East Windsor) with similar deals on MS same size

be very careful to buy very old stock or very new on those Lexar cards, because according to the people Palm.com messageboards, the company temporarily switched its OEM supplier from Panasonic to SanDisk for a while--and SanDisk is notoriously bad.



Not only are SanDisk cards slow,but they have been widely reported hard resetting PDAs.

you cannot tell from the outside of the package which make of card you are getting, although once opened according to some people the following ways can distinguish the two Lexar cards

Panasonic have black print serial numbers and are made in Japan

SanDisk have white print serial numbers and are made in Taiwan

If you insert the card into a PDA, you can tell who made it by selecting "card info"

I picked up the last large "Duke" controller for Xbox at my local Target (Greenbelt, MD) yesterday for $15. I wasn't going to buy it, but they didn't have any of the reduced price smoke PS2 controllers I wanted and the Duke I did get was the last one there. (I haven't seen it anywhere else locally since they started phasing them out.)

I seem to recall Blockbuster having a $15 sale on them a few months ago, but my local stores were out of them when I went by. Well, I've got a spare now should anything happen to my original.

A previous post mentioned that when games scan at $0.00, they are supposed to be sold at 90% off of their last sale price. No such luck for me at my Target. When the following games scanned $0.00, the cashier got one of their handheld doofers and charged a price that it said.
Mad Maestro - $3.24
Haven - $3.24
Pride FC - $7.48
Amplitude - $7.48
Yup, Pride and Amp are now scanning $0.00 at my Target.
There was also a PlayStation FIFA World Cup game that scanned $0.00 and they wanted $6.50 for.
Darkstone (PlayStation) marked down 50% from $9.99 to $4.98.

The target packaged Mad Catz off-brand Gamecube memory card 59's can be found for 1.99. Also, any of the slightly older E-reader games (I found Golf, Tennis, and Donkey Kong 3) can be had for 1.24.

Clearance stuff can be mixed in with the regular product, can be at the end of an aisle, or in with the unlocked "Value" games. Also sometimes game clearance can be found with books, music, and video, so check there as well. Many times the product goes unmarked, hence the barcode trick described early in the thread (for games under glass).

Princeton NJ, East Windsor, NJ, Burlington, NJ, Freehold, NJ, Neshaminy, PA, Langhorne, PA, Philadelphia PA (Snyder Ave), Cherry Hill, NJ and Menlo Park, NJ
