Why would they refuse to price check?

Lazy/want to buy it for themself.

 

I would either say I want to buy it and "change my mind" if the price was not to my liking or go ahead and buy it and return the next day.  Let the @$$h*les restock it.

Pink 3ds (in big box) 99.97 at the store near me as well, passed though (2 left, will pick one up if they hit x<70).

Which Sears was this?

I was in Erie, PA over the weekend and at the Sears in the Millcreek Mall I saw a big box Aqua Blue 3DS for $149.97. I don't know what the actual price was as I already have a 3DS and didn't want to ask them to price check. So if someone else wants this its up for grabs.

Because they are lazy pricks.

 

The Sears I've picked up all of my deals at, I just take the item over to a price check kiosk and check it myself. If I am interested in something from the case, I typically have to ask an employee that either a) Watching YouTube videos on the store computer or b) Sitting down watching TV. In most situations they just say the price that is labeled (like I can't read..) when I ask without even opening the case to check. Once I insist, and the price is actually cheaper they act all surprised. Is it too much to ask for employees to do their job? On the other side of it all, the fact that they don't their jobs has resulted in clearance not getting priced and me getting in on some great deals.

Maybe they simply forgot how to do their job. Like I've never seen someone in the electronics section, so maybe months / years of wasting space caught up to them. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Went yesterday and saw Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim. Nobody in the department. Walked around assuming someone from an adjacent department would come over and see if I needed help. Nope. After 5 minutes I went over to the washing machine area and flagged someone down. I told him I wanted some games. He said, "No the guy went home." WTF

My Sears has been a wasteland for most of the year.  It used to be a great place to get cheap clearance stuff but they pulled all their inventory that was older and now all they have is newer stuff.  I guess those will eventually be clearanced unless they pull them and send them to Kmart or something.  But my Kmart is getting closed soon...

Why would they refuse to price check?

Because they work on commission and don't get paid very much for selling games for $5 to people apparently. Funny thing is I work for that store and the one guy in electronics is nice and friendly. But the other two shmucks working with him are lazy assholes and the one younger guy in particular is an ignorant/arrogant prick.

 

That's also why the appliance people likely didn't want to come over to help another poster, since they were afraid they would miss out on their chance to pounce on some unsuspecting shlep to shill for a credit card app, to make sure they're signed up for Shop Your Way Rewards or if they get a sale to hound the people for a protection plan. For SHC corporate it's all about the numbers. If you're not producing, you're not even getting hours.

Was this some type of manager's sale?  Just curious since my store has multiple copies.

There wasn't a sign posted, and the price rang up at 9.99 without any type of manager override. Maybe I just got lucky, though they were ringing up for 19.99 about a week ago.

I saw similar today to what deadtrees saw, except no modnation or uncharted.

 

The PS3 Bluetooth is still holding strong at $10 for the 3rd month or so, and the 360 wireless headset is at $20.

 

PSV charge cable is still $3.

Picked up a PS3 copy of MW3 for 9.97. It was tagged at 49.99 in the case. As usual, when I asked for a price check the response I got was 49.99 as the clerk read the tag. When I insisted, the standard sigh ensued. He opened the case and proceeded to check it acting all smug. For the 100th time, when it rang up 9.97, I got the "oh wow" surprise.

 

Just another day shopping Sears clearance.

 I know. When I bought the Mass Effect 3 yesterday and it rang up $1.97 the clerk said that's a mistake, chuckled, and called a manager over to do an upwards price override. They weren't sure what to charge so they just let it go for $1.97, grudgingly.

That used to be my experience with Circuit City clearance. The managers would have a flying kinipshit when stuff was still marked $50 but came up $4 on the registers. They would re-ring them 3-5x and then finally begrudgingly give in and let you buy them. Then they'd ask you how you knew it would be $3-4. You would think a manager would know the markdowns in their own stores.:lol:
