I found 4 copies of AC (PS3) but they rang up 19.99. So I assume they have to be a certain version? Or how does it work?


Did you find greatest hits version or the regular? Because usually its the regular version that will be clearance. Also like darkzion said it does vary by store and are, for example I find target greatlands have different prices from normal targets by me but even then prices are really per individual store.

This is a good time to check your local Targets as there are a lot of returns and hidden games reappearing. I got a copy of Fable 2 yesterday for $7.50 which my store hadn't stocked in over a year.

Pick up Rock Band Track Pack Country Ps3, the red tag said $20.98 (30% off), but I scanned and it said 7.48 (75% off).

I checked some "returns" and "go backs" in the shopping cars.... after that everything is clear... nothing left... just copies of Bionic Commando for $29.98 (50% off).

If you find a "return" or an old video game with the red tag: If you scan a video game, and it says "not in the system" or show as "$0.00"... ask the electronics guy or a team member who has the "little machine" (don't ask a newbie).... this thing can recognize the last price of the clearance stuff... you need some luck, just depend who's helping you... some team members from Target don't want to sell you the game (they're lazy)... or they want to sell you with the full price.... avoid managers

LEGO Batman was on clearance for $12.xx at one particular Target. After they sold out of them, they got another shipment in and made them $20 again (I scanned). This is the first time I've seen this scenario first hand.


Ya awhile ago LEGO Batman was $12.xx but now they are getting restocked and they are scanning for $19.99.

I've seen it happen for other games too including Prince of Persia and Frontlines: Fuel of War...

I went to Target and was surprised to find:

Bionic Commando :360: - $29.98
My Chinese Coach :ds: - $14.98
Cabela's Big Game Hunter?? :wii: - $19.98
FFTA2 :ds: - $14.98

I either already have or am not interested in anything on the list but I'm just surprised that they weren't blindly picked up at 50% off. I didn't notice any new drops. The games in the glass cases were really picked over so I'm not sure what titles they will clearance whenever they do another drop. I don't remember it being this bad last year. In fact, the clearance endcaps were in decent condition at my Targets this time last year .

I picked it and Section 8 up at that price. I had wanted to wait on both til they hit $7.48, but I worried(correctly) that they would be gone by then. As it turns out, they were gone at all my local(and some less-than-local) stores before they hit that price.

The Assassins Creeds at my store for $4.98 were the 360 Platinum Hits version. There must have been like 40 of them at one time, but they are ALL gone now. ;)

Updated list. I saw some DPCIs being posted (and one guy who posted a fairly large list) I'm not going to worry about changing those in the OP until we see some new January drops and it's back to business as usual. Everything from Christmastime is most likely irrelevant-- I'm sure there's some clearance out there, but the general consensus seems to be "OMFG STORE RAPED."

I went to Target and was surprised to find:

Bionic Commando :360: - $29.98
My Chinese Coach :ds: - $14.98
Cabela's Big Game Hunter?? :wii: - $19.98
FFTA2 :ds: - $14.98

In fact, the clearance endcaps were in decent condition at my Targets this time last year .

Yeah, I remember all of the people saying "EVERYONE WILL BUY EVERYTHING AT CHRISTMAS" just being hype-- my stores still had clearance. But this year it seems to me to be almost entirely true.

Nice spotting of My Chinese Coach. Might be good to brush up on some Chinese for when America's new owners come into town.

I scored with the X-Mas returns. Got GH:Metallica and GI Joe for $14 & 13. I'll be keeping GH:M but I'll most likely trade in GI Joe at GS for the $20 credit.

There should be a copy of Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor for $7.48 at the Streetsboro, OH Target that I returned a few days ago. I'm glad I had left it unopened and kept the receipt. I only returned it because it was on Steam for the same price, without tax. And I don't have to keep track of the disc that way. :D

Target price matches print ad's for identical items but doesnt take internet print outs.

Something I keep forgetting to post: Beatles Rock Band(full $250 bundle) has the NCF prefix now. It hasn't dropped in price, but hopefully in the near future.`

Bingo. Mondays are when the pricedrops happen at most stores, gang. I recommend visiting Monday during rush hour (4-5pm if you can bail at that point)-- if you try to go when they open, the markdowns usually haven't been done because they have to update them manually. And if you've been eying an item but show up late (after 8pm), it might be gone.

My local has a huge quantity of Wall-E for Nintendo DS and basically nothing else. Probably will be waiting until the end of January until goodies start showing up again, I reckon.

Not much around here in the way of games, but I did get a Dyson DC17 vacuum cleaner on clearance for just below $300 after tax (50% off regular price). Pretty good price for a Dyson. I'm hoping that it drops again within the next couple of weeks so that I can price adjust :D

Old coupons still work at Target stores if you get the right Target cashier like the 11/25/09 expired Buy 2 :360: games, get $10 off coupon. It still worked for me last week. Awesome awesome deal. RIP.


Meaning one who doesn't notice the expiration date, or one who sees it and is like "well, just this once..."?

My local Target moved its video game clearance from about fifty feet from the video game section (at the very end of the electronic area, facing a back wall nobody vists) to the endcap of the video game section. It also now contains more of a grab bag of stuff, rather than simply video games. With that, there's been absolutely nothing for months. This store still doesn't have Fallout 3 GOTY in stock, so I'm shocked that the clearance was put in a visible area.

It was definitely fun while it lasted, though.
