Store closing "sales" >shudders<. Last major one I experienced (though not the first by far) was the Circuit City by me and to a lesser extent the BBV one after that. Man, those sales really bring out not only the worst IN people, but the worst people in general, haha.

You always get that first wave of morons who ruins it for everybody else by going in and buying pretty much anything with a % off sticker on it. Then you have the employees that hide stuff for themselves, friends, and family. Then you get the stalkers who harass employees the whole time about EXACTLY WHEN the drops will occur, don't take their word for it anyway, and are waiting at the store every single morning just in case drops happen. The people who will push and shove for any deal. The people stocking up for all their friends and family. The flippers buying cart fulls of stuff, etc etc etc.

Circuit city clearance was worse than their clearance sales. I miss circuit city. Found a ton of food deals there.

For 90% of items at a store closing sale you can probably buy it online for a cheaper price and with a return policy. I wouldn't buy anything at a store closing sale unless it was disposable goods or something that could not possibly have a problem with it and I absolutely could not get the item for a lower price elsewhere including online.

Local news stations like to air stories about how these sales are scams so most people know by now, but you always get the people who think they are getting the greatest deal ever no matter what but if you spend a large amount of money at a store without a return policy then you are stupid and you get what you deserve if you have a problem with your stuff. It doesn't take much research to learn these sales are a scam, and if you can go to a store then you can spend 2 min to read an article somewhere about scammy liquidation sales.

A lot of these stores seem to have a ton of old merchandise that has been sitting around for a long time and has probably been hauled around a million times thus more likely there is a chance for broken parts, cracked screens, dead non-replaceable batteries etc.

Today I was in my local kmart in Iowa City, IA and noticed that the White PSPGo was marked down to $50.00 on clearance. All the accessories were sold out months ago though. But with the cradle it is not too bad of a buy. I am not sure if this price is company wide though.

That was $4.97 a few months ago, maybe there is another round of drops?

I found a copy of 3rd Birthday for $4.97. It had a yellow clearance sticker. I also found a copy of Lufia DS with a "Great Value" or something sticker on it. Probably nothing new but this is the first time in years that I've found something decent at Kmart.

Anybody know if the Goldeneye Wii bundles (with the gold classic controller) were clearanced by Kmart? Mine has one marked for $47.xx (reg price is $49.99).

For anyone still looking for a PSP 3000 I just picked one up for $24.97. It was tagged at $84 but I asked the clerk to price check it. He couldn't belive it, he scanned it twice.

I also grabbed a Playstation Move charging station for $6.99 which I think has been posted here before.

Happy hunting!

Holy smokes. A psp 3000? I know that is old tech, but great to use to watch movies and emulate old school gaming. I haven't seen a PSp at kmart over a year.

Holy shit! A KMart near me had one a couple months ago marked at the $84.xx clearance price. I will definitely stop by there tomorrow to see if it's still there.

So many great PSP rpgs.

My KMart had nothing. Even the old games I picked up there were back up to higher prices. They seemed to be very well stocked with WiiU and Xbox consoles, though. There were also about 2 of the Gears 3 Limited/Epic editions, Halo Reach Legendary Edition, and AC Brotherhood collector's editions.

No, thought the same thing immediately. Used quality ones can be found routinely for $65-75. Got to love cheap dates.

She puts out ambiguous posts like that sometimes, I think to stir up the natives. Probably gets a kick out of the reactions. CAG is the perfect place to do it; anonymous, plenty of undersexed men buzzing on Mnt. Dew, limited competition for attention from other females.

Unless we are all being trolled. Someone here has a signature that reads:
On the internet men are men, women are men and children are the FBI.

Regardless, good luck finding a PSP. FYI, Target has slowly started dropping the prices non-clearance. They are currently $99 if you still have any in your area.

Great find. At that price, I might have picked up two, to have another spare since I have a lot of umds.

Sale ended 1/19... Oh and Fuck managers like that. Similar shit happened to me when all I wanted to do was return the game and rebuy using a valid KMart coupon. I was told they can't because too many people are doing that and KMart is losing money. I am sure they are... Due to Shitty customer service.


You should have done the survey against the store and mentioned the incident. It would have hurt them in the long run as they take survey's seriously.

Saw Sims 3 - 3DS for $2.50 at the local Kmart.

Nothing else was stickered that cheap here, but maybe other games have dropped too?

I scanned a couple of things at my KMart (Samurai Warriors 3DS and Hunted PS3). Both came up as Check Shelf Label. They did have price stickers of $40 on each of them, though. How does KMart usually handle things that ring up check shelf label? Do they just type in whatever price is stickered on the game?

I'm going by a different KMart after work to see if they still have that psp. I don't expect it to be there, however can't pass up the chance to get a new psp for that price. I forgot how many awesome PSP rpgs there are!

Nothing at a decent price at any of the 2 kmarts I went to.

Most games are the pre labeled stuff for meh prices.
