I used to feel the same way until I realized how much money I was spending in gas just to scope out any possible deals. It cancels out any discount you get from the clearance. It's easy to get excited when you see a game with a 1.97 price tag on it, but your brain never actually calculates that it cost you 21.97 to finally get it at that price.

It gets to the point where, if you aren't already at the mall, you're better off just biting the bullet and paying the $15-20 for it on Amazon.


I did that for a pspgo. Thankfully though there is a Sears literally 5 minutes walking distance from my place.

My Sears was pretty picked through. I did find a Sony 2GB M2 Memory Card for $0.97 though.

Apparently my local Sears had one of those game blowouts since the last time I was there. The clearance area had half the space it used to have and I saw DJ Hero 2 Wii and Sports Champions PS3 both tagged for $1.99 with June stickers (they rung up $7.97 and had to be manually adjusted) so I am guessing a lot of other games were also marked down to that price.

Checked a local Sears and they pretty much stripped all the <$10 items. I have a feeling it was an employee, but I didn't bother looking harder. All those drops I've been eyeing, gone...

Yeah it's very likely the employees will grab all the good stuff and leave the scraps during these secret fire sales.

Anyone been to Sears today? Since there was no price drop last week I was thinking it might happen today.

I've got work in 30 minutes, so I'll check when I get in.

Found a few PS2 titles (Guitar Hero: Van Halen, Band Hero and some Hanna Montana game) for 97 cents this week. They have no trade-in value, so I didn't buy them. All other games still had June stickers on them.

Friends and Family on Sunday.

Dude in electronics told me that my store is eventually going to phase out all games and consoles at my store. He hadn't received the e-mail from Corporate yet, but he thinks it's coming soon and the drops will start happening then.

I thought my store would be spared from the phase-out, but apparently this won't be the case.

No new drops at my store. I checked a number of games, all rang up at June's prices.

Dropped by one of the two sears in my area - games section is completely gone. Nothing game related even for sale any longer....

FYI, friends and family excludes video games (and everything else) this time around. It's solely on TV's 46" and larger and home audio systems.

Picked up a USB cable for the PS3 for $2.97. No good price drops on anything else. Saw Golden Sun for $9.97, but I already have 5 of them from when I got them for $5, so no go there. I would VERY MUCH LIKE for the 50% off deal to COME TO MY STUPID SEARS RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!


Also picked up the USB cable at a non-local Sears for $2.97. Passed on a Move charger base for $5.97 (since I don't have/want the Move). Otherwise, the store was almost bare of gaming anything. Sad to see.

The July drops finally hit at my store. Nothing worth noting, though. Everything I checked was just $1-5 cheaper.

None of the games were marked with July stickers but all games that end in .97 were 25% off.

Dropped by my locals sears to buy some photo albums for the wife so I checked on the games section. It's now 75% on all clearanced games. There was only one cart of games left to pick through. Most of the titles are shovelware, but some, like deBlob 2 for Wii can be had for $3 bucks or so. Picked up

:ps3: WWE All stars
:ps3: Red Faction: Armageddon
:ds: Wario Ware DIY

all for $8.95 total! Too bad Sears is getting out of this business, I will surely miss this type of haul!

The main reason why hauls like that exist is because they are getting out of the business. If they were successful at selling games, they'd be going for higher prices.

Just to reiterate, 14-day price match (protection) guarantee, 30-day window to return/rebuy, 110% price match vs. competitors that have the game in stock or orderable (BBY deals of the day count).

My store also has the unannounced 25% off clearance games going on. So far the only gems I'm seeing are all of my pokemon games are ~$18 each. Black, Heart Gold, Platinum, et cetera.

Thirty days for return/rebuy? Are you sure? I mean, I know Sears may have slightly different policies than Kmart, but on the receipts at Kmart they tell you the final day you could return stuff on that receipt till.

It's usually been listed as 3 months for me.

Not sure. I rarely(if ever) even bother giving them my rewards info since it takes so mf'n long to get up to any decent amount of points by just making random purchases.

On the back of the receipt, it states that electronics and a few other departments only have a 30-day return window. I've had customers shriek and huff over this fine print.

A Sears I went to today had a $4.99 table but it was all junk, Band Hero for PS2, Def Jam Rapstar game only for Wii and XBox 360 and a few other games that I already forgot about. All clearance games were 25% off though which appears to be not just that store since the Sears I went to on Saturday also had the 25% off and the games ring up with the discount automatically. I picked up Big Brain Academy for Wii for $4.47. It was opened but the disc and manual were there and the Club Nintendo code was unused.

This is probably YMMV, but I just found Pokemon Platinum for $6.97 and Wii Sports Resort with Wii Motion+ for $9.97. I say it's probably YMMV because Wii Sports scanned at $29.97 when I went to double check at the price scanner (it was clearly the right label, though) and Pokemon is out of the system (so I think it was a manager's discretion markdown). I doubt anyone else will find these deals, but weirder things have happened.

For reference, this is the McCain Mall Sears in North Little Rock, AR.
