I'd definitely would have been interested...I haven't been able to get a Penny Guide since Best Buy stopped doing it.  Gamestops around me don't even have guides on the shelves anymore, and if you ask them, they flat out tell you it's no longer in the system.  

I know what you mean, back in the day with BB, I'd just empty the shelves into a cart and drop a quarter with "oh I heard these were on clearance" when the cashiers eyes flashed with amazement.  Now I had to go to 4 gamestops today just to find 1 copy of Ass Creed Origins HC and FF Dissidia NT HC each.

Were those the only two HC drops? I have to hunt for those soon. Probably am too late.

What? What a waste! You could have put them up on CAG. People would have easily paid you cost + shipping + gas for them.

 

I don't know about that, I had them listed on the trading thread for years and never got any bites. They weren't from recent drops either; last drop I got anything was at least 2 or 3 years ago. No real standout guides either. Can anyone really tell me they would have wanted any of this: https://www.cheapass...9#entry11729587

Those look like mostly softcovers. You made the right call. I'm about to do the same with my pile of non-CE guides. Just can't seem to bring myself to toss hardcover guides though. May just give them to Goodwill

No updates as of yet, just replying to asking if anyone found the pokemon CE drops at all?

 

Also, does anyone know of any current amazon discounts or codes for book purchases? There are some futurepress guides I'd like to pick up that. Since gamestop stopped carrying them I don't see any other option except amazon.

I was able to dump a big lot off on CL, mostly junk like you have there for about $1 each. Did take a while, but luckily not short on space. Kept a few that were worth at least $5+ and still have a bookshelf full of my own collection that collects dust.

A big thank you Romeo. I was able to get a God of War CE. Was waiting for a 50% off sale on guides glad I didn't miss out.

I keep up with the thread, but I've had no luck ever when it comes to grabbing any penny guides. Not sure if it's just me running into a bunch of JDs, crappy luck, no inventory or some combo of all of the above.

Nice list nix. ESO CE dropped a month ago with AC Origins CE. Didn't know puzzles pennies. Would have grabbed some for gifts if I knew.

 

I'm still looking for a sealed CoD WWII CE if anyone has one.

Willing to sell any of your extra guides? The only store in my area never lets me pick up any of the penny guides.

yeah, that sounds good, pm me, let me know

 

 

Also looking for the FF 12 zodiac age HC, thats hard to find for my area

 

 

also, my 2nd haul

photo 2.JPG

 

puzzles and starwars bottle stoppers are pennied, rest dropped out of the system, so they are older but the best are the Destiny 2 Forsaken card decks that came with preorder, great if they'll give them to you for free.

 

 

edit: apparently there are some nice magnets floating around as well. I need them for my fridge, no home is complete without magnets on the fridge, very upset about that.

That sucker seems to be the holy grail this time around. I'm driving to a store just over an hour away this weekend to grab a copy on hold for me. Dissidia was a bitch for me to find too.

Right there with you. I haven't been able to get anything since around the time BB stopped doing it. Oddly, that is when my GS luck dried up too

Crash Bandicoot Trilogy game guide is sold out on Bestbuy.com so maybe it is a penny in store.
