They have lots of non-video game related items but here is the most recent post video game related at Big Lots.

Hhmm...the coupon link isn't working, but tempting if I can get it. My Big Lots just got in a bunch of new 360, ps3, and wii titles with a new arrivals sign. I remember seeing Michael Jackson the Experience and MotionSports Adrenaline for the ps3 for $13.88 along with Kirby's Epic Yarn for the Wii (not sure if that was $13 or $18).

I edited the coupon link to go straight to the jpg instead of the webpage, hopefully that should work.

Thanks! Got it. Btw, was back there today...Kirby was $13.88, and some of the other new titles I saw included the Dreamcast Collection and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean for the 360.

I would contemplate suicide before walking into big lots.

Seriously, how is this place still in business?

I remember going to Big Lots about 20 years ago just to play an arcade game they had in the entrance. Final Fight maybe?

since when do big lot sell game....


It's an overstock store. They carry everything. The game selection isn't always the best, but you can often find nice things.

Some are nicer than others. I usually look at the DVDs, books, and might check there if I need a household item. I did get a great deal on a Ninja a few months back.

In the 80s they were a real overstock store. Now they are a regular stock dollar store.

Oh I miss the good days. Still like the place.

Big Lots isn't that bad. They have some decent merch at these stores and are more organized than k-mart that's for sure.

They still are otherwise I wouldn't find such a good price on some Newman's Own Organic products as opposed to the other stores that sell Organic stuff primarily. Same goes with Nature's Path. This alone implies I'm getting overstock as opposed to stuff being made with the idea that it will be sold at the dollar store. Are there exceptions? Yes but look at their back to school selection and see the price of the refillable Pilot pens they're selling. It's a combo of the two.

I'm glad I don't have that attitude. My Big Lots scores have included, among many others:

Tony Hawk Shred (with skateboard) : $10
DJ Hero 2 party bundle (two turntables and a microphone... somebody was giggling) : $20
Cabelas Big Game Hunter (with gun) : $15
EA Sports Active (with... oh nevermind, it's junk) : $15
Power Gig Rise of the Six String (with real guitar, not great but real) : $20
Rocksmith (with real guitar, not bad) : $40

That's just the game bundles I've found in the past year or so. Some real "CAG" bargains to be found there.

I snagged a DJ Hero Renegade Edition for $30. Plus cheap flash memory and accessories, cheap DVDs, books, etc. They used to have a great selection of PC adventure games (back before "adventure" became "hidden object crap"), but not anymore.

I buy about a third of my dry-goods groceries at Big Lots too. Even cheaper than Wally Mart, and you don't have to squeeze between 400-lb breeders with 8 screechlings to get at the stuff.

I'm going to use this coupon on Zelda Spirit Tracks, if they still stock it. 11.99 is a good price on that.

I remember a few years back when they ran their $10 video game promo, myself and a bunch of other CAGs went there for Jambo Safari for Wii. Most CAGs reported getting the last or next to last copy of the game there. They haven't stocked it since, but they do this kind of thing fairly often: diamond in the rough good game mixed in with all the shovelware. This sale is worth checking out.

Anybody know how they run this sale? Is it 20% off the purchase total (ala Best Buy) or 20% off each item (ala GameStop)?

Aren't the two mathematically equivalent?

It takes 20% off each item. At least thats how it did when I went in the past.

Care to elaborate? Is yours disgusting or something? Mine isn't the cleanest place in the world but it's no worse than my KMart, Ollies, or really even the two Wal Marts near me. Even if it was a little worse off I'd still go in there though. They have ok prices on snacks, pet food, some tools, household items, yard tools, decorations, toys, kid stuff, and sometimes video games (both console and PC).

I love Big Lots.

By the way, when they do these days at my Big Lots, they always have a stack of coupons at the register so you don't even need to print off one. Not sure if other stores do this the same way.
