Hello, first time posting here. I was casually searching through the clearance bins and found 3 strategy guides for a penny each. Best one was Zelda Breath Of The Wild complete official guide, The Elder Scrolls v: Skyrim Special Edition, and Watchdogs 2 Collector's Edition. I ended up buying the first 2, but I let the store associate get the Watchdogs cause he was bummed he didn't know they had it still in store. He actually gave me a dollar coin in exchange lol. If you have found any deals feel free to post down in the comments, y'all have a good one.

I figure they would do that, than give it to the people who might still want them. If I find any more I'll be sure to post to the link you provided. 

 


These are also supposed to be destroyed, not sold. Very YMMV.

Hi, I was going to make a new profile, but forgot that I made one long ago. Didn't feel the need to close that one down and make a new one. What is an alt by the way?

Thank you for the info., regardless of who you are. 

 

If this is an alt., which it appears to be, the length of no posts for the account reminds me of the movie Primer (SPOILERS), the failsafe box has been put into action!

Better check Geechy's attic for so-called "rats"! :-D

Snagged 2 Andromeda SC and 2 GR:WL SC guides. Bonus that there were 2 GR:WL CE guides sitting there, too, so 6 cents well spent. :)

If you are looking to unload one of those Andromeda guides, please let me know.  I have other guides to trade or PP (reasonable cost + shipping) if you are interested.

 

Nevermind...I found one.

I don't understand the culture or mindset of regular CAG posters.

A few years ago, I posted maybe my 3rd or 4th post ever (after having my account for a year or 2) and I got crap for it. Why does this matter at all? I bet the majority of the people who visit CAG never or almost never post. Many, like me, just come here to see what hidden gaming deals their are on the internet. Posting a comment is almost always unnecessary unless you're adding to specifics of the deal.

Why do regular posters feel required to shame those of us who rarely post? Feels like an exclusionary kinda society sometimes.

You don't need an account unless you are going to post something as you can read any public forum on the site without creating an account. If someone posts something that has a strong appearance of an alt account, whether the account is 5min or 5 years old we are going to call them out on it. Old accounts are naturally suspicious because if it has little or no posts, chances are that it is an alt account or a lurker which are both hated for different reasons.

 

People who use alt accounts tend to be fart sniffing, basement dwelling, trolls that had their other accounts banned for good reason and should stay away.

 

Lurkers have been known to ruin good deals by blasting deal details all across other areas of the web go so they can get worthless internet approval likes. They also tend to ask annoying questions that are easily answered with minimal research.

So your saying people shouldn't make accounts if they aren't going to be typing angry paragraphs about a deal on a deals website? Ok boss

Alt accounts are assholes but unless there's a very clear indication of an alt account, regulars do need to lighten up. There's plenty of reasons someone would create an account and just not post.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Yeah, this isn't an IATCG sighting.  Not his style.

I'm neither one, I never got banned or put deals on other sites just to feel good. I really did forget I made an account long ago with my current email. Just wanted to let people know what I saw.

Thanks all! Had a decent experience going into a Gamestop and asking if they could help check some guides. Reg prices on these hardcovers: Mass Effect Andromeda, TCGR Wildlands, and Witcher 3, but the guy set aside Skyrim SE [sc], Watchdogs 2 [hc], and Halo Wars 2 [hc] when they scanned for a penny. Then he told me that "I found these by the dumpster right?" since they couldn't sell them. Also mentioned that when his store's guides get pennyd out, they go through their stock to throw them away. I guess these were somehow overlooked. Anyway, got to walk with 3 free guides, so had that going for me.
