Just got a job at Sears and first thing I think was checked the game section. Been awhile since I last been there and it's super condensed and couldn't find their clearance :( I just assumed they were holding it for non advertised BF sales or a lot of Layaway (which there is already tons of stuff on Layaway at my location) and not something as sad as they sent them away. With training I had no time to ask anybody yet.

SYWR members should check their mail box, I just got this in yesterday, which doubles (up to $20) any redemption points you make on a single purchase. I blanked out the barcode (not sure if its unique or not, mine ended in 0447), and I don't see any text restricting clearance items (it does say qualifying purchases, though, I don't think that excludes clearance).

Unfortunately I used most of my points a couple of weeks ago, but still worth mentioning nonetheless.

I'll be posting this on the K-mart Clearance thread as well.

Don't ignore the email about $3 reward points toward shoes. Some others have mentioned they work on other things.

Mine reads this:"Heads Up! You have 3000 points expiring on 11/19/2012"

Two of my closest Sears sent back almost everything gaming related. All they have left is a handful of MSRP games and a few clearance games that are still way too high.

I didn't get that or the double points one. I got "Use your remaining points [not many left] and we'll add 5000 points to your order."

I've got those in the past and ignored them.:-# I've, recently, started taking their points seriously these past couple of months. You might as well use them and get $5 in points.

Not sure if anyone else noticed earlier, but Google shopping is back for almost all titles (before it was only a handful of selections), which even shows the last known price of stores that sold out of certain games.

The bad news is one of my stores must of sold a bunch of their stock to Kmart, as they are OOS of a good chunk of higher priced (but clearance) games I was eyeing. Most all of them were Wii games, so perhaps they are looking to move those out due to the Wii U launch?

Not for me. I searched all of the games that I know Sears has in abundance and nothing is showing up.

Wow, my Sear's is pulling some shady shit for Black Friday. For about 2 weeks, Modern Warfare 3 for the Wii was on sale for 9.97, along with a few other games. Go to the store today to grab a copy only to see they stealthily removed all the clearance stickers from each title, and jacked up the price back to retail.

Sadly, that's normal for most stores. What's even sadder is that it often works really well and many stores manage to sell items for even more than usual. Normally sell something for $10, mark it up to $20 for a week or two, put it on sale for $15, and watch the uninformed masses hand over their money.

That kind of thing is fairly common for Black Friday the last few years. TRU did it with Uncharted last year or the year before. It's just an oversight that when a game is provided a BF deal by the manufacturer the retailer already happened to have it on clearance. Does suck though if you are waiting on a drop.

I guess I'm done with Sears now. The two easily accessible Sears near me have both had their clearance items wiped out. The first store definitely had a 75% off sale one weekend and all but a handful of more expensive clearance items were sold. The leftovers weren't put out on the 75% off table apparently. At the other store, the handful of clearance items left were on a clearance table with a sign stating up to 75% off, prices as marked. I don't know if that just caused a flood of common customers to purchase or they had a sale before I was there too. All that was left of interest was a 360 Green Day Rock Band and a DS Disney Club Penguin game for the kids, but I couldn't get a price check to see if there was a sale going on because some guy was having a bitchfest with the only electronics employee about his warranty and there are no scanners at the store.

Funny, the very same thing was happening when I went to the register to have some games scanned last time. But in this case, it was a woman and the employee called someone else over to help out.

Couple 11/30 markdowns today. Normally first Friday of month so probably ymmv.

All of the Wii controllers and nunchuks started a clearance cycle at my Sears. Only 34.97 on some but good for a couple months down the road hopefully.

Although its probably worth checking for one of these:

Sony DVDirect VRD-MC6 Multifunction DVD Recorder - Sears number 03-53984 - $49.97

They are selling for roughly 200-220 on Ebay so its a good deal. They are actually pretty cool if you look it up on google. Transfer all types of video or files to DVD. It has a little screen to for editing.

And the Nexus 7" 16gb tablets are 189.97. Also not bad for a droid tab.

The only things worth paying attention to at my store are the point and subscription cards, and those will probably never go on clearance.

Might look for that dvd recorder, though...

Google shopping may take a day or two to update, going to check tonight to see if there was anything else worth mentioning.

DVD recorders won't let you do anything with commercial tapes due to macrovision which makes them effectively useless. Most people have a DVR that came with their TV subscription for this purpose.

I have a panasonic DVD recorder that I got from my uncle for free which is really awesome since I don't have a cable service that comes with a DVR. The only problem is finding an actual disc that it will record on. I did find the disc, but when I found the proper DVD ram disc it cost $6, so I just bought one disc and use it over and over again. Much better than using tape though.

I saw a commercial once on a Japanese TV program that I was watching for a DVD recorder with a program guide and the recorder had a hard drive about the size of a regular VHS tape that you could take out and put back in just like a regular VHS tape, now that would be awesome to have!

Went to my Sears last week and they went from having 3 full glass cases of games to 1 case of games on the end of an aisle. There are a few gaming peripherals down the aisle behind the games, but wow, they got rid of most of the gaming section. Sears just lost a lot of my business as I only need televisions, outdoor equipment, or appliances every few years, if that. I hardly buy their clothes, either.

Mine's been like that for a few months, maybe the summer or so. The funny thing is that they "got rid of the games" that disappeared yet they kept showing up on Google Shopping. Then a couple weeks ago I went and tons of them showed up on the clearance rack after months of not being out. So they didn't put those games out, which meant no one could buy them, which meant that they sat there and aged, which meant I bought up a shitload of games for next to nothing. Maybe it will happen to you too.

Just an FYI for SYWR members, I got an email for a free $5 in points for this weekend, expires on Monday, December 3rd. Check your emails or accounts to see if you got it too.

Also I think this coming Sunday is Friends and Family Night, which is an extra 5% off video games (not hardware though), check your local to see if it would be worth it.

Today they are doing 10,000 points which equates to $10 sears cash on $50 purchase redeemable on the 2nd and 3rd I believe. Here's the catch. It doesn't go through on clearance. Why the hell am I posting this? Because I was able to get them to deduct $10 automatically on that transaction . Spending $200? Of course your gonna do 4 separate transactions. This is YMMV but definitely worth trying.

Is this 10,000 points sears only or sears/kmart for SYWR members?

I'm not sure. Since they are linked I would guess both.
