I'm considering returning my used copy to go buy this one. It'd be cheaper by a bit, and a new copy. The only difference is this isn't credit, it's cash.

Now if only other things were cheaper at K-Mart as well. This would bring in some nice residual sales from a larger amount of people if that were the case. Oh well.

PM at Sears should get a 110%. Or if anything, BB for the certs.
PEW PEW PEW.

I'm definitely in for :ps3:FF XIII. $29.99 is exactly the price I've been holding out for. In fact, $29.99 is the sweet spot where I am willing to buy any top-tier game these days. :360:Aliens Vs. Predator is only a $19.99 game to me, so I'll hold out longer on that one.

I'm really glad to see Kmart being more aggressive on this. I worked there for 4.5 years (back in the day) and I've always tried to support Kmart when I can; they are still the best place around to get vitamins LOL. I don't really foresee that Kmart is going to be able to compete with Best Buy's rewards program any time soon, though. As a Premier Silver, I get 2.5% back on all purchases, plus an extra 6.67% back on game purchases, plus an extra 2.5% back for paying with my Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard, plus free shipping on everything. I just don't think Kmart's going to be able to match my total of 11.67% rebates + free shipping (plus bonus point promotions on top of that), but I'd be happy to see more of these $29.99 'recent release' game deals :)

FWIW, I am holding out for deals on the following games:

For $29.99, I would buy :ps3:Heavy Rain, :360:Darksiders, :ps3:Yakuza 3, :ps3:MLB 10: The Show, :ps3:Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, :wii:Red Steel 2/MotionPlus bundle, :ps3:Nier, :wii:Wii Sports Resort/MotionPlus bundle

For $19.99, I would buy :360:Aliens Vs. Predator, :ps3:Eternal Sonata, :360:Super Street Fighter IV, :wii:No More Heroes 2, :360:Metro 2033, :wii:Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles, :ps3:Resonance Of Fate, :ps3:Katamari Forever, :ps3:Dead To Rights Retribution, :360:Army Of Two: 40th Day

That is my entire wish list for deals on currently-released games. Thanks for listening LOL ;)

Bayonetta at $30 is hardly a deal considering places had her for $20 recently.


And it's not like it's even worth $20 since it's utter rubbish...

...in my opinion. :D

Hmm, I already gamefly'd and beaten FFXIII, but $30 is tempting.

"hardly a deal" for those who missed it on sale for 360. I don't think it has been that price, new, for PS3 though.

I'll be getting Bayonetta for PS3 at $30. I've seen your efforts in the KMart clearance thread, SHC, and you clearly care. I hope your superiors recognize the incredible effort you are making, because compensation is definitely deserved. I, and it appears plenty of other CAGs, are very satisfied with your brand of customer service, which goes above and beyond what is required of you. Keep it coming man.

How about giving your money and support to SHC-Gamer and K-Mart.


Well said, for his good job, give Kmart the business. Let the other departments run the store into the ground.

Definitely in for a copy of FFXIII, if I have the money for it. Well done SHC, you definitely got the jist of things.

FWIW, I am holding out for deals on the following games:

For $29.99, I would buy :ps3:Heavy Rain, :360:Darksiders, :ps3:Yakuza 3, :ps3:MLB 10: The Show, :ps3:Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, :wii:Red Steel 2/MotionPlus bundle, :ps3:Nier, :wii:Wii Sports Resort/MotionPlus bundle

I like the wishlist idea...Will help out SHC for future promotions.

Might jump on Nier instead since FF doesn't interest me as much even at that price.

Thanks SHC-Gamer :applause:, for your hard work and time you put into bringing these prices to us. For the longest time I've spent my money at BB because of the reward zone, but having these sales on newer games early makes it harder to spend my money at BB. My reasoning for purchasing from there was, I liked being the first owner of my games, and I figured if I'm buying new, I might as well get something in return (rz certs). Being able to purchase these games on sale for great prices like these beats having to wait for those points to add up and turn into credit. Being able to buy Bayonetta at $30 new vs $59 new from BB saves me over $20 plus the points I would get from the one game wouldn't add up to the cash saved.

Ugh

I've been saving up for Resonance of Fate, but FFXIII for $30 is REALLY tempting.

Think Best Buy will price match if we show them the blog?


Aren't these going to be in the Sunday ad anyways? My bad if I missed something about these deals being exclusively posted to the blog.

Like all the other Cags, I thank SHC-Gamer for bringing us this post and for embracing all us Cags in general. The blog is great and I hope Gamer gets all the dap they deserve. All retailers should be doing things like this and it boggles my mind that more dont.

Flip time - beat it quickly. FFXIII is worth $42 right now at Gamestop (w/ EDGE).

FFXIII is a real good deal, but for what platform should I buy it for?

From what I've heard. You should go with PS3 version. I was thinking the same and then I saw the difference at two my friends house. PS3 version has uncompressed sound and video, and if you 1080p tv then you are in business.

If you have equal access to both, then definitely go with the PS3 version. While I have both systems, I have far easier access to my Xbox 360, so that's the version I am going to get it for.

I don't have that long a wishlist but would be tempted to buy Heavy Rain and Yakuza 3 at $30 as well. I think Darksiders was at $20 for the lucky bastards in the NY/NJ area at PC Richards so hopefully a huge pricedrop soon.

Thanks for the heads up!!! Will drop by Kmart for FFXIII next week. Also, will actually look forward to future deals at Kmart.

I may pick up another copy of FFXIII and sell my current one to GameStop for roughly $40 credit...

Then I could pick up a game or two on GS.com (GOW: Collection and LBP:GOTY)

PS4 | Destiny | Rocket League

Homebrew PC | Overwatch

FFXIII ps3 and Bayonetta XB is very temping at those prices. There is one Kmart in my area I'm sure will be completely picked over by the time I get there but I will check regardless. Thanks for the heads up OP

Damn, I should think about doing that too.
What's the trade-in value for FFXIII, or is that w/ a trade-in bonus promotion?
