Previous threads:

Target clearance is YMMV, ya dig! Games may not even be on clearance at your store, or they may be higher or lower than what is on this list.

This thread is for clearance-- not for sale items. Price reductions for clearance seem to happen on Monday, although not every Monday, but could also occur any day of the week depending on your store's price change team. Price adjustments on clearance are typically not allowed, but some have succeeded or have been able to do as return and rebuy.

Target often donates its older clearance titles to Goodwill stores, so keep that in mind when you're trying to find items. BigDirty: "Further reduction is possible when a game's price ends with 8 cents. However, when it ends in 4 cents it will NOT drop anymore. If it ends in 9 cents, it's just on sale or on a non-clearance reduction." Also, note that, typically, games will drop three times-- from 30%, 50%, then to the final drop of 75% off of the original price. Some people, however, have seen further drops up to 85%.

When games are marked down, the price change team typically find the game and scan it with their PDA/LRT to intiate the price change. However, in the case that they cannot find the game, they will either choose to not drop the price further or process the price change anyway, figuring that the game is somewhere in the store.

When posting deals, please include game, system, price, city and state. For example:
Debbie Does Skywalker, Xbox 360, $4.98
Mesa, AZ Power Road at Superstition Springs

Also, a great help when you're posting deals you've found is to check this post and see if your item's DPCI number is already listed. DPCI stands for Department, Class, Item-- it's Target's version of a SKU. These are a nine digit number that can always be found on your receipt and also on the red clearance tags on the item itself. DPCI numbers are handy to have when you want to check the item's price-- just go over to your scanner and punch in the numbers, if your scanners have keypads. Also, you can give these numbers to team members so they can check the availability of the item easily with their PDA scanners. Please post any DPCI numbers that are not already in the OP-- thanks! This is especially important since some of the DPCI numbers on Target.com start with 241, meaning they cannot be used in-store, and also meaning that I can't get all of the numbers from Target.com.

Here is a fairly easy way to check your local Target's pricing-- often price tags will not be correct. Thanks to BigDirty for this:
1) Go to Half.com or a similar site. Search for the game to locate its UPC code number. It's in the gray box underneath the box art graphic.
2) Go to UPC Data ,Milk.com , or UPC Database and enter the code so you can print out the UPC. Go to Target and use the price scanners to scan your printouts.

Thanks to Mephitical for this tool for locating clearance titles, which is located here. Go to Amazon or Target to find the item's ASIN. When you find it, replace "B000O3IS48" in the URL with your item's ASIN. This will take you to a page asking you for your zip code. Type in your zip code and click enter-- this will display a list of local stores and whether or not they have your item in stock. YMMV on it working properly.

The lowest known price will be posted. The item could be higher or lower at your store. Numbers in yellow are DPCI numbers, which can be used to check the prices of items on newer scanners.

i grabbed assassin's creed on 360 for $4.98 about a week ago in Denver, CO not the $20.98 you have listed. I think I saw some other posts with that price in the old thread.

NHL 2k10 for PS3 is 6.24. Probably hard to find at that price, and I have never seen any of the games go to 88.5% off (original price is marked 49.99), but got it today.

Weird. I thought MSRP was $20.

My target was cleaned out. Only thing left was Bionic Commando 360 for $29.98, and WWE 2008 and Madden 09 both PS3 for $14.98. I'm hoping to see some new items soon!

Also, yay for new thread!

:360: WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008 can also be added to the $7.48 list. I found the platinum hits version last week (12/23) for that price, but my post in the old thread was deleted, probably because it mentioned the thing-that-shall-not-be-mentioned. Oops, I mentioned it again...

Ah, new thread. Most low priced games have been bought up from the holiday season, it'll be a while before stores restock on titles.

Nothing to see here, move along!

I must have missed the mention of the extra half-off clearance games. Man, I've been snoozing lately.

Most Targets have been literally picked dry. I did see one copy of Wario Land: Shake-It for about $30 yesterday, but that was the only clearance title left on the shelf.

I didn't expect to find anything interesting at Target for the next few weeks. Too many people Christmas shopping in December, and too many people using their gift card presents.

Erm, maybe I completely misread the ad, but I don't think it was an "extra" half-off clearance games, rather merely that they were advertising clearance games at "half-off regular prices". Of course, that was enough to get all of the soccer moms who don't know any better to go out in droves and pick everything clean.

That being said, there was nothing listed in that ad which hadn't been on the shelves at those prices for the last several weeks anyway, so I'm hoping that they didn't add anything new. I had been waiting for Wario Land to drop again, but after seeing that ad I just went ahead and grabbed a $20 copy at Gamestop instead. Other than that, there wasn't much in the current batch left that I was all that interested in anyway.

*subscribes* Hope to pick up X-Men Origins and Dead Space some time this week.

Um, good luck . . . those two have been long gone from most Targets for a little while now, and any copies that were left anywhere have probably been sucked up by all of the extra people who were drawn in by the sale ad. If there's any chance at all that you might get them, I wouldn't put off going any longer than you have to.

I scored a PS3 BUZZ Tv[$15], Red Faction 360[$10] and Wolfenstein 360[$15] .

Pretty cool 3 games for $40 .
