Lol, that was the Sears i got the pokemons from.

I kinda figured there had to be at least a few Syracuse(NY) area CAG's. I know one of the other CAG's from that area has his location listed or has mentioned hitting up the Great Northern Mall up in Cicero/Clay.

I was actually thinking about hitting up Auburn the last time I went up that way for work(CNY auto auction in Lafayette on a Tuesday night), but I've heard from a couple people that the Sears at the mall there no longer sells games and it's otherwise a dead area for deals. Of course, that could've just been their way of trying to keep me from invading that area while I'm up there.:razz:

I mainly go after PS3 related stuff or super cheap stuff like pennied guides and very cheap clearance titles usually.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

I got the flingsmash as well as a $4 360 guitar hero warriors of rock from the Clay sears.
Flingsmash was marked $19.97, which was good enough for me. I was pleasantly surprised when it rang up $9.97. So then i had the worker (unhappily) scan a couple more things, but they all came up as marked.

The Pokepark game is extremely boring, and this comes from someone who likes non-difficult easy games. All you do is run around and make friends with pokemon and there are a couple mini games and that is it. I would advise saving your $10 unless you need it as a gift for a child under 5 years old, because anyone over 5 years old probably would not enjoy it. As for me I will stick with the Pokemon RPG games.

So does my one buddy on here, who has been hitting up my area, Syracuse and all over creation apparently as of late.:lol: With the auctions I used to go to in NY and PA(and sometimes NJ) I would routinely hit a good chunk of PA's eastern half and everywhere from Waverly(NY) to Cicero to Newburgh and in between.

However, the Auburn Sears is showing up on Google Shopping(though out of stock) on the PSPGo systems at $99.97.

Yeah. I think that Sears has a reseller like the Arnot Mall store, since I'd see something one week and then the next it would just magically disappear. They had a silver Dual Shock 3 sitting there forever on a cart near the tv's. I figured I'd hit up the store and grab it once it dropped to $20. It sat there unmarked forever. As expected it was gone when I got there.

Although I did end up eventually getting a silver DS3 from the one PA store by me. It was behind other DS3 controllers on one of the locked peghooks, so it looked like it was stashed there.

I also snagged a single black Dual Shock 2 that wasn't marked for $5. All of the remaining ones were long gone the next day when I stopped back.:-#

But going by what I've heard from the local employees I think it was the one local shop owner who clears them out and not the employees here, though for a while I think it was a 50/50 mix. That's why I always liked going outta town for work, since I'd find all manner of good stuff unmarked that I missed out on around here.:-#

That's very weird. There hasn't been a videogame related item in that store for years.

The Ithaca store had a PSP bundle last year sometime when I went up to that area for a jaunt the one day while up in NY for work. I knew for a fact that they stopped carrying gaming related stuff a few years ago, so I was shocked to see it. But I was short on time and didn't have it price checked.:cry::-#

You never know unless you try. You could end up grabbing it for $.02 off MSRP and then return and rebuy at a closer store that may have had them for $50.;)

Just picked up Crysis 2 Limited Edition :360: $24.97 and a Sony Bloggie for $34.97. Couldn't pass up that price on the Bloggie; its not the Touch but a good price for a 1080p HD camcorder.

That's how much we got our old bloggie for. We really like it. Found a Bloggie touch still around at an out of the way Sears. It rang up $56.97. Same price as last month and a little higher than I wanted to pay, but I had to have it rung up to find out the price. The lady flipped out and said she was going to try to get the other one as it showed two in stock, but the other one may have been the beat to hell display model which still had a 99.97 price tag on it. We needed another and the upgrade from 5MP to 13MP pics with the ability to snap pics while recording will be nice. Interestingly enough, I had to get the damn thing from the store room pickup system which was a joke, but the first one brought out was the black model which google shows as sold out in the area still at full price of 199.99. I woulda looked into it, but at that point I just wanted to go.

As far as games at that store, ALMOST EVERYTHING WAS GONE. They still had some skylanders, a pink DSi XL, maybe an Xbox or two, and some accessories. ALL GAMES WERE GONE from the cases which were just completely empty. Not even recent games like Max Payne 3 which I saw at another Sears.

Transfer sale is easier. But only advised for those that know how to use it.

I remember going all the way out of my to check that Sears out to find no games as well. Kinda surprised even though they have a gamestop close by.

Went by my local to grab the $8-ish copy of PS3 Fracture that has been lingering for months. Of course, it's the only game gone now... :(

Also saw a black PSPgo with a $99.xx sticker on it. Still legit I suppose? Wasn't it the white one that dropped to $49.xx?

The whites were $49.99 and some black were from $75-$99.

Not game related, but while was in Sears in VA, I saw a panasonic bpt110 box sitting with the other models on the shelf. I took it to the register and it scan for $14.97. (the box looks like it was retaped) Anyway, when I got home, I open up the box and see that it's a 220 model! This is the new 2012 model and I was shocked. It looks brand new and everything was in the box. Manf. date Jan 2012. Wonder how this could happen???

Maybe someone pulled a switcheroo on it? I bought a Uniden DECT 1580 single handset wirless set a while ago for $7 or so and I swear the battery on it was already failing within the first 4-5 charges. It seems to be ok for now, but the area by the battery cover gets warm after it's been on the charger for too long. That's how my old phones battery ended up going bad.:-#

well sears was remodeling the department. They had those dummy blu rays on display, but had 1 fake and 1 real 87 model on the display. I was looking at the games and google shop showed limited stock on a psp go white. :cry:
They couldnt find it and I lucky saw the 110 model box on the shelf.
I wonder what is the different between the 2011 models (110,210,310) vs
2012 models (220, 320) The player runs great. Now to debate if I should put the 220 in my room or keep the Sony S580 in my room.

All clearance games ending in .97 (most of the gaming section) on sale for 50% off at Eastern Hills Mall in Williamsville NY, apparently in effect for the whole month. I grabbed Eye Pet for $3.50. The manager said that some other stores are doing it, too, but it's ymmv and the percentage off is at the store's discretion (and he seemed to think that the other stores with similar offers were more in the 20-40% off range...think he specifically mentioned Boulevard Mall).

I live in Auburn. The Sears does not sell games. It sucks, I have to drive all the way to Syracuse (a solid 40 min drive) to go to Clay

Sears is horrible with their clearance... at least around here (SE PA/ Delaware). The only thing I've gotten from there is Overlord for PS3 which was tagged at 3.97, but the clerk insisted it rang up in the system at $7.97. I raised a rare stink and got it at the marked price. Rarely is there anything actually clearanced out in the open other than old Madden sports titles. There are plenty of games behind the glass but nothing is marked.

Both Sears and Kmart have their share of lazy employees, which makes the scan/price check process a headache. Sears clerks just seem bitter with an "I know more than you about all electronics because I've been selling cameras for 3 months" persona, while at Kmart it's more of an ignorant "It's this or Burger King, so who cares" attitude. I'll go with Kmart, at least the stupidity isn't masked. Not all stores, but at least around here follow that description..

My 2 cents...

^You just have to keep going to the same stores and have them build up a tolerance for you. In my experience, they are more willing to check stuff for you if you've proven to them that there is a point in doing it.

There was a guy at my Sears that was a little slow to help, but after I got him to price check those Socom bundles last year when they bottomed out, he thought it was hilariously underpriced. Now he seems to enjoy the adventure when i go in there and ask for something.

That's one of the main reasons why I hate going there. Almost every time I go and ask them to scan games, they want to argue with me and insist that the sticker prices are set in stone. I wish they would just let me use one of those stupid price checkers.

I've never met a Sears employee like that guy, though. So in my case, there's no way to prove there's a point, other than to start buying things.

Well I scanned some clearance games today but nothing had dropped. So, are we to assume that clearance has ground to a halt?
