I misunderstood what the guy was saying.
People have found vita ac adapters for .97, 4.97, and 9.97. What good is confirmation when stuff is highly ymmv anyway.

Its not all YMMV. Usually the drops are national; the crazy stuff happens when managers do markdowns themselves. Who knows if they had to do something extra behind the scenes to mark the Mario bundle down; Sears is a strange bird.

There's no denying that. I just found one of the old clamshell 1600 pts cards. As expected, when the lady scanned it, there was no price. So she walked over to where the new style cards are and said, "it's the same as these, so it would be $19.99."
Argh.

Hit up the NLR sears today, PS Move bundles are down to $19.97 and I grabbed a PS Vita USB cable/AC adapter for $0.97 each. Good deal.


Competition! :whee:

Were the Move bundles the Deadmund's Quest/Sport Champions bundles that dropped last month? I checked about a week after I reported that drop and they were all gone. I thought someone had bought all of them up. For $20 I'll go back tomorrow and snatch one up.

They should be the original Sport Champions bundle. My deadmund's one is still sitting at $84.97 or so.

If that wasnt the correct one in the system, wouldnt i have needed an override? Or does it not work that way?


Not if they scanned the bar code on the clearance sticker.

I can confirm this. Also, someone was asking earlier about the PS3 Bluetooth thing, it's $24.97 at my store

The only think i found was a 3ds cradle with charger. It's funny because they also had a dsi charger and had a closeout price of $13.00

Galleria Mall has 6 or 7 of the black ones, but they're still $149.97.

Niagara Falls has a single black one for $149 unless the price dropped. But it looks like they are $139 at newegg right now so probably not worth it unless it drops. Interestingly enough they also have a single black one in the case with the new smaller packaging which costs $169.

Sears loves to clearance stuff just because new packaging becomes available.

But that's good for us though. I would have never been able to get a 3DS for $100 now if Sears hadn't clearanced it.

Yeah same here, we won't see $99 for the 3DS again for a long, long time. I really don't know where I would have gotten a 3DS that costs less than that and if I were to buy a used one it would likely be all scratched up and kid-abused and probably would cost the same amount. I also have grown to really like the red color, probably my favorite color out of all the 3DS colors other than the purple. I also haven't put it down since I got it so it was a very worthwhile purchase for me!

Sears is also clearancing the Wii remotes and nunchucks that have old non-Wii-U packaging, mind you its the exact same remote/nunchuck just in different packaging. But I have no complaints.

Yeah, Galleria had a lone white wiimote in the old packaging marked $34.97. I scanned it and it is really $29.97.
I am definitely NOT complaining about their clearance deals. Just systems alone i have gotten a $75 red 3ds with mario bundle, $40 blue dsixl with mario vs donkey kong bundle, $150 250 gb slim 360, $70 hannah montana psp bundle, and probably something else i am forgetting.
I wouldnt even begin to list games and accessories.
I just dont get why do what they do with hardware.

Still waiting for the local sears to drop the price on the 250GB xbox hard drive. (fat model) Its been at 75$ for a couple of months with no takers. Still have a couple of 3ds' left, some at 99$ and a mario land bundle thats probably gonna brew for a while until it goes on sale.

Decided to run by my local Sears clearance this evening and I'm glad I did.

Picked up the following:
2 - White Nunchuks (old packaging) - 4.97 each
2 - White Classic Controller Pro (old packaging) - 4.97 each
1 - PSP Go Traveler Case - 4.97
1 - PSP Go In-Ear Headset - 2.97
2 - Pink Nintendo DS Mini Folio - .97 each
1 - Wii Deluxe Game Traveler - 9.97

The PSP go stuff goes well with the PSP Go I picked up from Gamestop a week or so ago, and I'm always looking for cheap 1st party Wii stuff. The bag will be nice to put all of the Wii Motes and random accessories in.

I typically never find anything at Sears, but tonight was refreshing. I think it's mostly because none of the stuff was even marked down. I had to get price-checks on everything. I might go back tomorrow and see if I can find any other steals....

I only found today was one black nunchuk for $4.97. Had a manager special take 75% already reduced clearance. So they took 75% off of the $4.97. Does wii accessories work on the new wii u?
I also saw the deluxe game traveler for $19.97, but never had a price check.

They sure do!
Any wii u game with concurrent multiplayer requires wiimotes and possibly nunchucks.

The new packaging usually comes with a new UPC as well. The computers see two different product numbers with two different descriptions (ex. Halo 3 vs Halo 3 GH) so when the sales department runs a report for older merchandise that isn't moving, it won't count the "greatest/platinum hits" versions towards the original version sales. The same thing happens with hardware and accessories. New packaging/modelling often equates to new UPCs.

This reminds me of a story that occurred when I was ordering groceries for a small store. Low on Mars candy bars, I kept including it with my candy orders. I couldn't figure why (a) I never received any Mars bars and (b) why my candy supplier kept shipping me Snickers Almond bars that I never ordered. After a few weeks it finally occurred to me to compare the UPC codes and found that they were the same on both products. It turns out that M&M/Mars had renamed/repackaged the Mars candy bar. The worst part was having to explain to my boss why there so many damn Snickers bars in the stock room!

Just found the flame red 3ds at my local store. Came up to 80.xx total with NY tax. I had looked for quite some time and they didn't have it in the case. They had the aqua blue price/barcode on it and made them scan the UPC.

Gf bought it for my birthday so I am very happy!

I'm thinking about returning the new PS Vita memory card I got. Anyone want it for $13 (PayPal) shipped? I'd do 12.50 Amazon credit instead since that wouldn't have a transfer fee charged.

Be sure to check your email / SYWR account, I just received another free $5 in points that expires on the 11th. Tomorrow may even be another drop day as well.
