It may be worth it to try to pm Toys R Us's clearance price on Skyrim of $9.98. I expected it to be a pain in the ass but I was able to pm without any issues (granted I am cool with the employees there) and get a crapload of Skyrim, Sc2, and Diablo at my BB and hooked a bunch of CAG's up. There's also a thread on here somewhere where keys are bein sold for very cheap from people trying to help out others



Wow... you must be REALLY COOL with the people at your local BB to get even PMs on single copies of these games that can't be verified through any physical ads, let alone get a whole CRAPLOAD of them at the discounted price of $9.98 each!

And I thought I was in pretty good standing with the folks at 2 of my local BB stores. But I know for a fact that they (especially when they call a manager to do the overrides) can't possibly give me that great of a deal, not without an actual ad that shows the clearance price!

Yeah, I guess id say we are REALLY COOL. I get treated really well there, I do a ton of trade ins and buy a bunch of stuff (most of it pm'd) so I know most of the guys there by name (2 of the guys that work in the geek squad and computer section came to my place to help build my pc for free) and I actually went to high school with one of them years ago. I know there store is one of the few that does well so I hope I contribute. On this particular deal it didnt require a managers override until they rang up the pm for Skyrim (I guess the first time I went the employee was a manager or knew the manager #) when the manager saw the stacka ge was pissed and mentioned calling TRU to verify stock but the employee mentioned that they are supposed to match any store in the state (didn't know that) and he did it. I've had it really good at this BB over the past few years so hopefully I didn't piss off the wrong manager and Fuck myself, the employee told me not to worry about it but we will see

VyseArcadia said he'd be able to check in the morning, so my guess is we'll know by tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Since we were talking about music anyway, I had a random find at Best Buy today. Metallica's Death Magnetic vinyl record, marked down to 99 cents, in a bin of clearance CDs. It was the only vinyl in the bin. Plastic wrap was a bit ripped, but otherwise great condition. 99 cents, marked down from $24.99. Had to snag that. There was an employee retagging other clearance CDs in another bin right next to it, so I'm guessing it had just been put on the floor at that price. Timing is everything, sometimes.

Didn't see anything for this week pop up in the report, so looks like another quiet week, ladies and gents.

Thanks for the update. We can only hope they're biding their time and prepping for Black Friday/Christmas season...

Doubt they have much stock left, but have you ever played it? I got it last time, played it, and was able to trade it back for more than I paid. The controls just seemed very "uncontrolled" and more frustrating than fun. Maybe those who enjoy learning combos like it, but I was expecting more of a pick up and go "blitz" soccer.

Thanks!

And, double D'oh!#-o 1 for me not ever using that deal & 2 for me buying blu rays that sit around when I can just wait for this deal to, possibly, get a better price. I have one I'm going to take back and buy again.8-)

Ah, foiled again!

Batman and Rage flips. Massive boners. Also, best buy sells most of the top games that are less than a few months old for 34.99. I'll be excited to get a cheap copy of resident evil.
