Saw 4 60GB starter kits in my local Sears at lunch. I have no need for them. I left them on the shelf... No insanely cheap games, except :ps3: band hero band kit for $29.99. If I didn't already have a fucking festival show worth of plastic band shit, I might have been interested.

No Tom Tom 540 (dammit), though they had a couple of other GPS units on clearance for decent prices. May go back and get one once I get paid next week.

What sucks is I didn't notice till I got home that they didn't give me my receipt in the bag.:roll: This now makes the second time I've had an issue with a Sears Holding Corp store, though the first one was at least partially my fault cuz I didn't fully check the damned shrinkwrap on it before I left the store and the game was MIA. But SHC-Gamer is comping me for the bs at my closest store AND the missing game via a gc, so all's well on that front.;)


I signed up for the Sears reward program and they email my receipts to me as well as giving me a physical one.

By the way, I appreciate all of your contributions over the years!

Got a couple of the Xbox 60GB Starter Bundles yesterday, replaced my old 20GBs with those, good deal. I did notice though that the Xbox Live 3 Month cards say that they have expired, has anyone had a chance to try them out yet? I have not started up my system, was going to wait until my current sub expires to use these but now I am kind of curious.

Also picked up
Soul Calibur IV $5
Riddick $5
Red Faction $5
$Skate 2 $5
Some great cheap titles for sure, thanks for the heads up OP.

Just got back from my Sears and apparently they didn't get the memo that clearance isn't $40 on 2 yr old games, didn't find one game for sale under 20

Had a nice haul today.

:ps3:
X-Men Origins: Wolverine - $8
Singularity - $5

:360:
3-month gold card - $4
60 GB Starter Kit - $20
Chronicles of Riddick - $5
Mass Effect - $5

I was planning on trading in Mass Effect and Riddick to Gamestop to go towards the 3 for an extra $10 since I already have both but seeing as how Riddick only trades in for $1.50 that's now a birthday present for a friend. I also don't need the 60 GB hard drive so if anyone's interested, let me know.

Can anyone confirm if they are expired?

I can confirm that they have not expired. After reading both of your posts, I went and redeemed my 3 months from the Starter Bundle and it worked just fine.

If it's on a card they don't expire and if for some reason it won't work I am pretty sure you can contact MS about the problem.

Any word on the availability of these netbooks and Xbox Live cards that people have mentioned on here? Are they YMMV or more nationalized? Also, any word if Kmarts are matching their clearance pricing?

Yeah, I bought a wireless headset from blockbuster a couple months ago. Out of the box, it appeared to be DOA, the lights couldn't come on to indicate it was charging when I plugged it in. But I left it plugged into a USB port for several hours, then unplugged it, and plugged it back in. This time, it did light up. Left it charge overnight, and now it works fine. So it was just a case of the battery being so completely depleted that it couldn't run the lights, but it did absorb at least a partial charge. So try that if you're otherwise stuck. Edit - to clarify, I used a USB port on my computer, so I didn't have to leave the xbox on overnight.


The headset I bought a few days ago charged with no problem
Plugged it in and lights started flashing and started charging right away.

Use Google Shopping to see if any Sears stores by you have them in stock. Just search 7" Sylvania Netbook on Google Shopping and it should bring up your local Sears stores and tell you if there are any in stock and/or what price they'd be.;)

I didn't realize Fight Night 3 was $5 until I read the thread last night. I had just been at Sears and they still had a copy marked at $15 so I thought I was golden. Stopped in today and they finally decided to tag the new drops... and Fight Night was gone. But they did consolidate some of the clearance stuff and I found a few new items to pick up.

Grabbed a PS3 charging base $9.97, a Wii classic controller $4.97 and a PSP 2gb memory Stick Pro Duo $4.97.

I looked through the thread but I didn't see anything about the DJ Hero 2 bundles but apparently they dropped pretty low because they had four last night and none today. I did see that they have the white and black Wii consoles on clearance for $149. I'll be watching the black ones for a further drop.

We bought two and are using one to test different OS stuff. Right now we have Android running on it. Helps though that my fiance is a computer scientist. :p I don't know what your average CAG could do with it. I certainly couldn't do as much as he has. For $12 (at our store) it was totally worth it to play around on.

It says I have one near me but the price says $50 so I think I just may pass on it. The only reason I would want one is if I go on a trip and I wouldn't have to worry over a non expensive item.

Wait, you got Android onto it? I thought that Windows CE was flashed onto the ROM and you couldn't get rid of it?

Can you give me a walkthrough on how you did it?

There are many of the 60 GB starter kits in the (southern) boston area. I picked up a few to upgrade my xbox. Also picked up a few copies of the following:

:ps3: Singularity x 2
:ps3: Red faction: Guerrilla x 2
:360: Raiden fighter aces

All for 4.97 each.

Also found 2x Silver Dual Shock 3's which I was quite surprised I found. Was looking for a silver ps2, but there are none in the area, but I did find the 8mb memory card for 4.97 also, so I'm happy!

This thread is becoming one of my favorites again.

Interesting. I just searched using Google Shopping and one of my local stores is showing it in stock...for $14.97. A digital camera that's actually major name brand....for under $20....hell yeah.;)

Although the families car is going in the shop tomorrow, so I probably won't be able to get to that store to get it before it gets snatched up.:cry: But it's probably only the display model left by now with none of the accessories it comes with or even a damned box at this point.:bomb:

I still have one of the red/blue two packs from when Sears cleared those out a couple of years ago. They're sitting right here in front of me still sealed. But with every retailer clearing out PS2's and PS2 accessories now, it seems like a no brainer to pick this stuff up for the secondary market cuz once the stock of these items is depleted then the value should shoot up a bit.

My fiance says you don't want a walkthrough due to how crazy hard it was, but here are the links we used, from earlier in the thread:

I know waht you mean!! I wasn't really looking for the memory cards, but what the heck, for $5, I'll splurge. ;) Gotta find some of those 360 play and charge kits though, I have some controllers that could use them!

I picked up the last :ps3: Singularity for $5 in Fayetteville, NC. They had 2 of the Xbox starter kits, but I passed since I don't have an Xbox.

Ah, good ol' Fayettenam. My old stomping ground. If only I knew about clearance back then like I do now. :lol:
That whole Cross Creek area seems like such a pain to get around now.

Singularity is enjoyable so far. The only thing I don't like is that there is no way to restart an entire level. You are stuck with using the last checkpoint, so make your decisions wisely in the game.

Was it still within the 14 day return/price guarantee period? I bought mine for $10 about a month ago and I was wondering if I would still be able to get $5 back.

Yeah I was shocked to see them sitting there. They were marked 24.97 too. Its a very decent 10mp camera. I saw on my phone they generally bring 80$ on ebay so well worth the pickup. They had 3 at my Sears so I grabbed 2. 1 is an easy gift for my parents.

They had a ton of other cameras on clearance. Going back today to check them out again to see if there are any more gems. I remember when I worked at Sears last year this was around the time of year when lots of good camera clearances happen.
