I'm still wondering how the hell you manage that. I can barely get them to give me $3 each for most games.:roll:

After reading about other people's purchases, I went back to Sears. I picked up the SingSong bundle for 4.97 and another Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise for 2.97. I get the feeling that people don't really look at the games at my Sears. By the way, they had TWO copies of project sylpheed in the glass display and TWO copies of Enchanted Arms. Enchanted Arms rang up at 40 dollars and Sylpheed was 30. WTF?

Went to my local sears for the first time today. They had nothing of importance, only a few old sports games for 14.97 or 19.97. Kinda ridiculous, actually. Now I know why I don't go there....

Got Boy and his Blob (Wii) and GH: Metallica (PS3) for $9.97 tonight.

Unfortunately Dead Space : Extraction went back up to $29.99 here too...

Picked up Motorstorm PR for 9.97, Ultimate Alliance 2 (PS3) for 9.97, and Red Bullshit for .47. Not too many games at my sears.

Ok, I checked the following:

:ps3: Wolverine:X-Men Origins $39.99
:360: Project Slypheed $29.99
:wii: Dead Space Extraction $29.99

I did manage to pick up :wii: Muramasa, :wii: Excitebots with wheel, :wii: Wario Shake It, :ps3: Wet, :ps3: GH:SH, :ps3: Wolfenstein, :ps3: Singstar Vol. 2 with mics, :ps3: Lego Rock Band, and :360: Viva Pintata:TiP. I was hoping to find a few copies of :ds:Red Bull for the cases, but I couldn't find any.

Thanks so much to all the CAGs who post their finds! I love cheap games!

Picked up Dirt 2, Motorstorm PR and Red Bull.

Gotta love it when it is stickered 9.99 and rings up 47 cents.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Nds - imagine family doctor - 0.97

It was marked 997 from April. I always say scan everything with an old tag. Some stuff drops more than 5


Wow, I wonder if any other $9.97 games are now $0.97.

Are these prices universal??

No, many stores still have various games reported to be on clearance at full price. For example, Animal Crossing Wii has been reported to be $4.97 and I have scanned the UPC at 4 different Sears and it was full price at all of them

YMMV. They tend to be company wide, but sometimes stores just don't have the drops/manually get rid of them (Or sometimes even go lower), whole areas of the nation will or will not get a single item, ect.

But there is a good chance that if your local sears has these in stock, they will be at these prices. If you have 2 or 3 close enough to check, you have a pretty good chance of finding one store that follows the cleanness to the letter.

Is Transformers ROTF any good and worth $10? Saw that at my local Sears and didn't know if it was worth it.

I have a huge problem and need help! I bought Wario Land Shake it on April 10 right after the last drop. To make things short this is what happened. My little sister opened up the game this past Monday and there was nothing inside the case. I went to Sears today to exchange the game, got denied and was told some BS about not being able to exchange or get a refund on open games.


They told me to call some 800 number and they were no help at all either. They told me to contact the manufacturer and have them deal with the problem. So the only thing I have left is to contact the store manager and see what he has to say about the situation.

Its only $15 but these people are complete ass hats.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Picked up:

:360: Tom Clancy's HAWX $12.97
:ps3: Wet $9.97
:wii: A Boy and His Blob $9.97
:ps2: Soulcalibur III $2.97
:360: Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise $2.97
:wii: Medieval Games $2.97
:ds: Red Bull BC One $0.47

I have to wonder about anyone who paid full price (or, well, anything more than a dollar or so) for the Red Bull game -- it's beyond terrible (which I expected, but had to try it to see just how bad it is). But, I needed an extra DS game case, and I don't know where I'd get one cheaper than that. ;)

Unfortunately, :wii: Dead Space Extraction has oddly been taken out of clearance and raised back to $29.99 (checked it in two different stores, along with the other reports here, so guess it must be universal). Also was surprised to see a few copies of :psp: Jeanne d'Arc, which scanned at $29.99 as well -- interesting because that was on clearance for so long (I picked it up at Sears a year ago for $10.97). I really wonder how Sears decides that games shouldn't be on clearance anymore, because that seems like a weird one to bring back (good game, but not high in mainstream appeal).

I agree, try talking with a manager and just explain what happened. If that doesn't work call Nintendo. I had to call a publisher to get a missing manual from a new game and it had no problem sending me a replacement. Nintendo has fantastic customer service. Just make sure you have your receipt available in both situations. Good luck!

If you want an idea about overall game quality, check metacritic.com for a compilation of online reviews. And, if you really like specific characters or game genres, the reviews probably don't matter at $10.

I bought Dirt 2 (360) for $14.97 earlier in the week. Must be down to 12 or 9.97 probably.

That happened to me at SEARS about two years ago with a PS2 game. I didn't bother even trying to return it, though, as it was only $3 and I didn't open it until many months later (way beyond a reasonable return time).


Same thing happened here with a copy of :ps3: Hot Shots Golf. Got home and noticed a small straight cut in the plastic. Sure enough, the game was gone. It was cheap enough not to worry about it, but still irksome.

Picked up the last Singstar Vol 2 Bundle at my local store for $4.97. Most all of the other drops mentioned above are active there too.

FYI - The entire bundle trades in for about $14 at GS right now with the current promotion.

I bought a PSP game last year in which the game was missing. Someone discretely sliced open the side of the shrinkwrap and pulled the UMD out. I didn't notice until I got home. I brought it back to Sears. At first they gave me a hard time and said the game had to be brought to security for investigation. But then I mentioned the game only cost $5 and it wasn't worth wasting time. Suddenly the cashier changed their tune. They let me pick any other game in the clearance section I wanted and would reduce the price to $5. So, I ended up getting a $15 game for $5.

Sskiizim, ask for the manager and complain. The store you purchased the game at should own up to this. You need to do this immediately as the return policy is almost up.
