Just a reminder to always check your purchase before you leave Target. I was at a different store than normal and saw Rock Band Beatles 360 for $20 and the vampire intro deck from the Magic:TG Zendikar set (really rare and sells online for at least $20, MSRP is $12.)

Had a coupon for $1 off Target Cafe so I decide to eat there and open my purchases. Rock Band Beatles was fine, but the Magic deck had the best 5 cards pulled from it and the booster pack was also missing. There was no damage to the box at all and the cards are sealed so someone must have opened it and somehow resealed the cards as I SERIOUSLY doubt it left WOTC like that.

No problem getting my money back as I hadn't left the store.

I pulled the price changes today and it was slim. I saw Memorex CD accessories (sleeves, jewel cases, Opti Fix, etc.) and two 19'' Vizios. No games unfortunately.

Actually I wouldn't be too worried about Target and returns, even after you've left the store and it's been a few days. My girlfriend bought one of those teeth whitening kits from Target and opened it up, started using it, and basically I guess it hurt her gums or something. We both figured she was out the $40 bucks she spent on it, but on a whim like a week later, I grabbed the open kit and remaining contents and went over to the local Target.

After explaining why I was returning it, the lady was like 'Oh we can just mark it defective' and she ended up giving me cash back because the receipt had my gf's credit card on it. Needless to say, I was really impressed ... so usually Target is really good about any sort of defects or items that aren't what you thought they would be.

Granted I've run into a few CSRs who go crazy with returns and treat you like a criminal, but for the most part Target is very fair to its customers, even after some time has passed on a purchase.

Andami do you go to the Target on Bayou?

Honestly, I have no idea. I don't live in Pensacola, so I'm not really familiar with the street names. It was the one closest to Cordova Mall I think.

I'd say you got super lucky with that whole teeth whitening transaction, especially since she gave you cash for it. She should have refunded the money to your GF's credit card in case you weren't actually her boyfriend and you stole the thing from your GF and she had no idea her product was missing and was being returned. In fact even if your GF was there to return it I'm pretty sure they're just supposed to charge the money back to her credit card and not give you cash unless its below like $5 or $10 - and that $5-10 might just be if gift cards were used

BRB 360 $27.98
Huge pile of PS2 junk
GTA Vice City Stories PSP 9.98 (bought)

Im suprised anything was left considering you visited the Target in "El Hoardo Hills". Next time pull a Steve Irwin and be on the lookout for the elusive masked man and be sure to try and shove a thumb up his bum to see if you piss him off. Just beware of stingrays.

On Topic - Only thing good at my local Target over the weekend was a Guitar Hero 5 (360) for 24.98. Already picked it up at my local Family Video for 10 bones tho.

hit several targets today with no new video game clearance to speak of. strangely some old stuff that was clearanced out already (tekken 6, prototype) has made a comeback at msrp.

Only had time to hit 1 Target before work but they FINALLY started the WD 500gb drives on clearance. Sadly, it started at 30% (whereas the other Target near me started at 50%) but I still bought one at $50 for work purposes. Figured I'd be kicking myself if I missed out (since I needed it sooner than later) trying to save $15. Lots of other random things all over electronics on clearance but nothing really exciting (photo paper, some alkaline batteries, etc) Definitely one of those weeks that they start a lot of things on clearance so maybe some good deals during the rest of the month. (anyone know if clearance will go as expected on Memorial Day? I think they usually stick with the normal schedule even if Monday is a holiday)

I'm afraid the PS3 Band Hero that I've been watching at another Target will have dropped today... won't be able to get there until after El Hoardo sweeps in.

Noticed that with :360: Dark Void today...new stack at $29.99.

My store was switching over to the new cases today. They are mostly empty with labels for games that clearanced out last month at their 75% off prices. They had Mario and Sonic Winter Olympics with the Summer's version label for $12.48 but wouldn't honor the price.

Did see today:

:360: GTA Episodes from Liberty City $9.98 (straight to 75% off...anybody wanna buy my code for Lost and Damned?)

:psp: SW Battlefront Renegade Squadron $4.98

:wii: Wii Speak $7.48

:ps3: Marvel UA 2 $9.98

:ps2: DJ Hero $19.98

Man, the Target here needs to make up its mind. When they first put in the new cases about three weeks ago, they locked up all of the clearance games inside of them. Two weeks ago, the clearance games were all back out on the end cap where they had been before. Last week, they were locked in the case again. Now this week, they're back on the end cap.

:ps2: Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories finally dropped to $7.48, so I picked that up. Other than that, some of the other PS2 titles that had already been in the clearance cycle dropped further (notably, :ps2: God of War II dropped to $4.98, which would have been awesome if I didn't already have the PS3 collection). Still no new drops, though.

TheToE i am in Pcola as well. Hit the nine mile target. Nothing worth mentioning really. Beatles rockband ps3 19.xx. Seems they are not moving clearance games to the clearance endcap anymore. At least ps3/xbox 360 games. Ninja Gaiden Sigma II still 59.99

Found a couple of Lexar 4gb MemorySticks (056-12-0759) today for $7.48. These are are in blue packaging and found in the camera memory card section as opposed to the red packages found near the PS3 accessories. Those were still $20.98 oddly enough.
The sticks appear to be exactly the same in both the red and blue packaging.

I picked up Saints Row for 5 and Kingdom Hearts for 7.48... from Target! Which would make sense since this is the Target thread.

It was actually only $1. The shipping was an extra $1.50.



Is this deal still around or am I just out of luck?

Some games I saw:

ps2/ps3 Band Hero $40/$45
ps2 DJ Hero $20
xbox 360 beatles rock band game only $27 (has been this price for a month)
some random ps2 games

It's prices like these that get me excited, and force me to look when I pass a Target...but I've yet to see anything close to that sort of deal. I mean seriously, Liberty City for $10 a few weeks after release!?!
