I don't know why the clerk told you that, because 14.99 is the standard price (marked down from 24.99) for the FF XIII and XIII-2 guides. Anyway congrats on finding some Dark Souls guides.


He was talking about getting the CE guide for the price of the regular guide because it was tagged wrong.

Syndicate guide at BB had its SKU deleted. After about 20 minutes and four people getting involved, they just gave it to me. Oddly enough I found a Fear 3 guide and it still rang up for a penny.

Not all good news though. I found a Disney Universe CE guide at another store and thought it would ring a penny as it was one of the last guides to penny at BB. Unfortunately that may be the reason why it didn't ring up as a penny because its SKU was deleted and they wouldn't let me have it :cry:

Lastly, Madden 12 guide was pennied at TRU.

I don't remember how many guides they had online before but they have 66 guides for sale now (including the sold out penny guide) and I want to say they had about 10 to 20 more a few days ago.

From what I see, that Fallout guide is the only pennied one online...weird. Can anyone make some inventory stock checker using that?

Thanks, unavailable everywhere.

Not that it helps, but "Unavailable" just means anywhere from 0 to 2 copies. :\

Was able to get Syndicate x 2, and that Disney guide (can't remember the name now).

Sadly, this was at a store that is closing in 3 weeks.:cry:

I see a lot of hate for SD and it's understandable, but you have to remember, CAG is solely for gaming, while SD has deals on everything. Food, clothes, books, computers, almost everything. CAG is great, but SD is useful in other kinds of ways.

Have you really been on this site for 10 years? And following this thread ("grab all them shits", "El Hoardo")? Because it's difficult believe you have and yet call out only some other site when condemning that mentality.

As the other poster said, some people consume things other than interactive digital entertainment. SD serves that audience, CAG does not. They really only overlap in that two categories are present on both sites: video games and tools.

You can technically price match these guides at the store using .com, would these guides still ring up full price in store?

No, they won't ring up at all (unless something has changed since last couple drops)

The Disney one dropped months ago in store. It may have been the last official penny guide.

I actually found a Disney guide in store about two weeks ago and the SKU had been deleted.
