Got a Move bundle for $14.97 and also picked up a Vita USB Cable which was marked at $4.97 but ran up at $2.97.

Couldn't think of anything better to spend my free $5 I got from SYWR on which expire tomorrow.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

He could have just been trying to make small talk. Speaking from experience, he may have just been giving you the benefit of the doubt by repeating himself thinking that you just didn't hear him rather than rudely ignoring him. Management doesn't care what you do with the product as long as you don't return it. Cashiers typically just flat out don't care.


He obviously cared very much!
If he didn't care, he could just scan the item, charge me, collect, and let me leave.
I wasn't there for a haircut or to get a cocktail. The situation doesn't merit any conversation beyond "how are you today?"

Is anyone here who got those cheap 3DSs willing to sell one to me for $90?

It's the Sports Champions / Medieval Moves bundle - this one.

The UPC is 711719983934, in case anybody needs it.

Went looking for the Bluetooth which they didn't have but left with the Move bundle and a USB car adapter for $20 (+ tax) total.

Interesting thing I observed was that they seem to be testing a program with iPads. The cashier basically rang up my purchase twice - for real on the register and simulated on the tablet. I have a hard enough time finding a cashier as it is in their stores and they want to make them mobile?!


Yeah, they had that at my store too. I couldn't help but think such a cool technology is wasted on a useless store like Sears.

Small box or big box? All the clearance 3DS's are on the larger 1st wave boxes.

Oh I see, these were the small box ones with the Mario pre-installed game. Thanks for clarifying. I'll keep an eye out for the big box ones then.

I told the clerk I thought I heard them being cleared out at $2 each. So I'm hoping the manager will just go with it and give them to me at that price. Or better yet, give them to me for free.


I thought it was like Kmart where they either refuse to sell it to you, or you get the last known price in the system.

It seems to depend on the employee. Last time I tried to buy some out of the system games, the employee just entered them in at $4.97 since I was buying a couple of other games that were in the system for $4.97. The time before that, I tried to buy a DS charger and the employee refused to sell it to me so I went back a few days later and got another employee to let me buy it (since the first employee put it back in the case, and I was in the mall anyway) and they entered $3.97 since it was tagged for that price.

I only managed to get a vita cradle. Figured that might be useful if I ever get a good deal on a vita.

Any thoughts on if they would still even work? Or do you think they would have expired by now?

The Wii points in the old clamshell are a bit of a tricky item, as I've seen three different prices at three different Sears, so it wasn't a universal price drop. If they don't take you up on your $2 offer, your best bet in the mean time is if you use the UPC off the back (which is 045496890346) and create a scan bar sheet (quick link to specific UPC on www.upcdatabase.com) to check out your other local stores. I've seen them ring up between $15 to $7 on clearance, so perhaps they can give that other store a call and confirm their prices (assuming you checked it out first, if they aren't too far away).

Also, those cards do not expire, so they should be just as good as when they created the codes.

They only had the Vita AC Adaptor and Cradle at my Sear's and I grabbed them both for $2.97 each.
I can't believe Sony had the b@lls to release the AC Adaptor without the necessary proprietary USB cable.
I would have returned it if it didn't cost $3, I can imagine someone paying $20 for it.

I finally got ahold of another person that had some notes on what they were going to do. They are to sell me 4 of them at $4 each. I assume they are keeping the rest for themselves which I guess I'm ok with. Just as long as I get some. $16 for $80 in Wii Points is awesome to me.

Might pick up a Vita cradle too because they are cheap and I am sure I will get one eventually.

I wouldn't doubt Sony's gotten more returns than it was worth on replacement AC adapters and USB cables, simply because they didn't package the two together.

My Sears is just about sold out of games. :( They're down to like, Mario U and Call of Duty, and not much else. They don't even have Madden 13 on Wii U.

Gotta admit that one is pretty bs too. Nearly fell for it myself because my USB cable has a small tear that I had to put some tape on, was gonna buy it until I saw the USB cable sitting right above it for 15$.

Not sure why both werent on clearance....

Saw some move bundles but they're tagged at $49.97, the tags are hand written. Reading back in this thread some people are getting them at $15? Guess I'm going back tomorrow to do some scanning.

While looking, an employee that was probably in his mid fifties asked if I needed help. Told him I was looking and he said he sometimes picks up deals to sell on Ebay. No wonder all the games disappeared all at once a few months ago.

Ended up getting 5 of the 2000 point cards in clam shells for $4 a card. They won't activate on the Wii U eShop, so I'm thinking they might be limited to the Wii eShop or DSi eShop. I will have to wait until the TV the Wii is hooked up to frees up to try there. I was really hoping to use the points to get some games for the Wii U. :cry: I'm not even sure if there is 10,000 points worth of stuff I want from the Wii eShop.

I also ended up getting a Vita cradle, USB cable, and AC adapter for 2.97 each. I guess I'll stash them until I get a Vita.

*EDIT*
Apparently Nintendo Points <> Nintendo eShop. Any good recommendations of software/games from the Wii Shop (or whatever they are calling it these days)?

^Wii Shop? I'd spend it on the DSiWare shop first due to shitty policies.

And the problem is almost every game worth your time on the Wii Shop is cheaper on iOS

Not able to get elsewhere

Fluidity is $12
MaBoShi is okay, $8
The Art Style games range from $6-$8
WarioWare D.I.Y Showcase is $8

And that's it. Every other game is cheaper elsewhere from what I can remember. The DSi Shop actually has more good exclusives, Fuck the ignorant haters.

I don't own a DSi, just an old school DS and a 3DS. I've read you can transfer applications from the DSi to 3DS, but I'd have to have a DSi device first.

I also don't own any iOS devices. I have a long standing hatred of Apple and anything and everything they create

my sears (Ocala - FL) sucks!!! they have a tiny video game display and no clearance rack... i did find a few items on clearance... but the prices weren't slashed to sell (usually $10- 20 off items msrp $25 to 35$)
plus they only had like a total of 25 different games between the ps3, 360, DS and 3ds.... lame!

I'm jealous of everyone getting these Move bundles. I know they look stupid, but my kid would just love playing those Wonderbook games. It's tempting to stop by Sears, but I know they haven't sold the Move there in months. They barely even sell any games at all.

That's the bundle I saw, they had 3 of them. I'm jumping on one of them because I've been wanting to try out House of the Dead Overkill with the gun.

Off topic but I have a iPod touch 4th gen, iPod touch 5th gen and an iPad 2 and none of them have failed yet. I will not buy apple accessories though as I managed to burn out one of their stupid $30 chargers within 3 months and their cables always tear, you can get cables and chargers for a few dollars each if that these days that last longer than the Apple ones. The $30 USB charger was a gift from a friend and I had no proof of purchase so I couldn't take it back to the Apple store, so I thought it would be the best but its easily been the worst I have owned.

However I did manage to break 2 DS Lite's, but not a DSi, and my 3DS seems fine although it does have the usual issues like screen scratching.

Yeah, you can only use the Wii points cards for the Wii Shop or DSiware. There are, however, tons of WiiWare games I would recommend (besides the plethora of VC titles, like Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana, for example):

Fluidity
La Mulana
Retro City Rampage
MotoHeroz
Mega Man 9 / Mega Man 10
Bubble Bobble Plus!
Castlevania ReBirth
escapeVektor Chapter 1
FAST Racing League
Jett Rocket
Art of Balance
LostWinds (or its sequel, though I think there were problems porting this over to Wii U, not sure if you first purchase it on Wii U in Wii Mode though)
More on my mind, but I don't want to clog up too much space...

You can get some of these for cheaper elsewhere (at base prices), but since you got the cards for $4 each, most of these come out to roughly $2-3 bucks, I'd say that is hard to beat.
