I still see some of the old clearance stuff at the stores around me... One I know has a Scene It: LCA still in stock... And another store still has some of the $5 Beijing Olympics, Dark Sector and a couple of others laying around.

Ah, the clearance may have dried up, but there are still good memories in there.

I remember a long ass time ago (late '99, early 2000, somewhere in there, it's been a while), I was perusing the electronics section for Nintendo 64 games. I don't remember what it was I was looking for, but I remember what I found: a single copy of Earthbound for the Super Nintendo, complete in that huge box that had the game and strategy guide included.

Before the Nintendo 64 had come out, I had always rented my games from this local ma and pa store (which, sadly, is closed now). One of the games I had just randomly picked out (I lacked any definitive taste at that time) was Earthbound. I played it for a few days, then had to return it, but found it a really interesting game.

So, back at K-Mart all those years later, I'm thinking it would be really awesome to get a copy of the game. I ask one of the employees how much it was, since it was locked up and the sticker was hidden, and she says that it's $19.99 because they are trying to get rid of it (aka clearance). I bought it on the spot.

It was probably one of the greatest (if not the best) purchases I ever made. And even though it's sitting in the closet right now, it's still all there, intact and as beautiful as ever.

Ah, good times.


We Earthbound fans need to stick together.

I think I've finally convinced my girlfriend to play it, even though she hates RPGs and any game that has a story.

While it is true that the days of $5 (and $2, and $1) games at Kmart might be over, there is still a use for this thread. Having said that, to those waiting for further drops on these games, I wouldn't wait too long or expect too much - they probably won't go down too much more any time soon.


I think with their backstock, SHC will be forced to drop prices of games constantly...And even then because the stores are so unorganized, he'll have problems moving old stock.

Many too many deals recently!

Nier was off my radar after the fishing video was released but I keep hearing good things about the characters and the New Game + mode.

Need to do some research I might check Kmart on Wends.

Just wanted to throw this out there, if anyone else picks up Excitebots during the drop (I'd assume with the fallout new vegas coaster coupon for a total of $5) and wants to play online PM me :).

Thanks for allowing this thread IO.

They are Kmart coupons that print out at the register when you buy certain things. Usually games but not always.

That's all I mainly see at one of my local Kmarts anymore is the Beijing Olympics ones, a couple copies of Dark Sector and maybe some WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 09's. What I laugh about most is how I mentioned on here that a certain local Kmart still had about 10-12 copies of The Last Remnant for 360(it's $5 btw if you can find it) and less than a week later when I went back they were all gone.:roll:

With the cases still being pretty disorganized at that same Kmart I'm willing to bet I could still find a couple really good deals in there to grab on Tuesday if I look close enough.;)

I've been talking about the Fallout: New Vegas coupon, which you got from buying a coaster set for $5. The coupon gives you $15 off a gaming purchase of $15 or more before tax and so on and allows for clearance, sale and regular prices.:D

So it's definitely a great deal if you can find a $15 game(:ps3:Heavenly Sword, which is $14.99:bomb:) and something to make the transaction go over $15 like a $5 silver :ps2:Dual Shock 2. So in the end you get a good game and a controller you could probably dump off for at least that back in cash on a local shop and essentially get Heavenly Sword(or a similar game) for free.;)

Good luck finding one of those tvs. If you do find one it's probably a beat to shit display model with no remote that's been on for 12-16 hours a day.

If you don't mind using an HD computer monitor for a 'tv', there's quite a few that come with HDMI inputs and have speakers that you could possibly use as a tv, though those almost never have an internal tuner and need an external cable box or something.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

^ Were the prices marked, or did it require a price check at the counter?

They were marked at full price, so I had the guy scan them and they rang up as 19.99. He said it was on his list of things to do today, to re-tag them.

I have a single $20 coupon for Kmart, that coupon won't work on a 19.99 game right?

I think that plain sucks. Are they usable on PSN/XBL cards now? I know when I tried to do that a while back, the system wouldn't allow it.

The cost of the coupon can NOT exceed the price of the item you are attempting to buy.

The 26 is still full price with current game price drop in effect - so no luck here.

The local K-Mart is still showing a much higher price for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, which I chose as a sample. The store staff said that it looked like a price change was "pending" and that I should check back next week. However, he believed that the price drop would only be $10, which would place it far above what is listed here. Here's to hoping he's wrong.

that just sucks. i was hoping to pick up dragon age and pay whatever is left over from tax. these gaming coupons are starting to annoy me - the expiration dates, only for games, can't spend on games under the price of coupon!!
