Hello, I am a Chicago guy so I would like to start a Chicago thread so maybe we can help each other out by letting Chicago area cheapasses find cheap deals.

Okay, I am in on this, but we have to agree to share the wealth, because I have scavengered the following locations:
Ford City Target
2000 Cicero Target
South Pulaski Target
Elston Target
31st gamestop
Roosevelt/Canal Gamestop
Cermak Gamestop
Ford City Best Buy
Ford City Circuit City
Clybourn Best Buy
Clybourn Circuit City

I have quite a few penny guides up for trade as well as a few games I'd be willing to part with. in general the Targets have treated me well, but you have got to be diligent about checking the clearance rack and scanning things and asking questions...I'd be happy to post what I've got and to discuss with whoever ways to organize our cheap asses together.

Okay then. Post away bub. Lately I just go to a few stores:

Matteson Target
Matteson GAmestop
Matteson EB (sucks Horribly)
Homewood Target

But sometime I go North Riverside Mall (when I'm unfortunely broke) and fing good stuff there.

Chicago Ridge Mall's Gamestop, EB and Two indy stores. The one across the Instant Replay (I think) sells imports.

I'll think of more good to decent places.

Might be interested, but i do have a wife, a 3 year old and a two month old...so sometimes it's hard to get out if you know what I mean.

i'm a couple of blocks away from Comiskey...er make that US cellular, so downtown is no problem whatsoever...there's also Sox games this weekend as well if a bar is too...well...barry for everyone.

The Disc Replay that is right next to Best Buy in Village Crossing usually has a decent selection of used games. They give cash for trade ins and that is why so many people sell back over there. There is also another Disc Replay in Harwood Heights, right next to the Gamestop on Harlem and Lawrence. Lots of good deals if you get lucky.

I live in downtown(north) and work in the burbs so I pass by many stores.

Best Buy in Niles (corner Golf rd / Greenwood) have the best selection of $9.99 or less clearance games and 1 cent strategy guides. Store also has vast amount of GGCs.

I live near downtown.
Game stores i usually go to the gamestop on canal and roosevelt. Nothing much there.

I go up to north ave alot. I just traded some crap into the Eb and got extra 10 bucks for 3 games.
The guy let me slide even tho i was missing a booklet for a game.
