I think he got laid off when they got into financial problems again and got out of the good game deals business.

At my nearest store: Enslaved PS3 with Marvel comic for 5, PS Move Heroes for 5, Yoostar 2 for 5, and Centipede Infestation for 3DS for 5. Oh, and Singstar Vol 2 for Playstation 2 for 5. Heh.

What will I do?!?

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

lol

I'm thinking of grabbing Centipede and Heroes, but I'm torn whether I want my freebie to be Yoostar or Enslaved. One will be corny fun maybe, the other I already have for 360 but would supply me with a dandy collectible comic.

LOL. That guy stopped games from dropping to $2 or $3 dollars. I use to find plenty of good games for only a few dollars each but he put an end to the glory days. Buying games for $30 to $50 dollars just to get a coupon to use toward another game is not an amazing deal but is a way for Kmart to get a lot more money out of your pocket. Apparently, you were not around when it was exciting to go on a treasure hunt at Kmart. You could fill your shopping bag with a whole bunch of games for the price that you pay for one game now!

The "treasure hunt" is great if you don't mind waiting a year or more after release to play a game. Josh (Kmartgamer) was awesome for those that like to play games at release and still save some money.

for stores that rarely update prices to clearance ones, how would I know if a game was on clearance? is there a forum post with a master list? I've tried searching but no luck :/

Yes that is an amazing deal when you can get new release titles from $20-$30 off, and even free games with your purchase. It also increased the traffic to Kmart's electronics section by a lot and put it on the map in sales.

Finding cheap games is always nice, but most people aren't lucky to find those lovely $2-$3 games. They brought the clearance back, and it took like a week for most stores to be gutted of almost anything really decent.

No. I'm not related to anyone on this site. There are a few of us who have been around here long enough to remember how good it use to be in finding great deals.

Would love to know the current prices on clearance items such as in a list or something. While some stores might discount certain items even more, all the games/systems have a specific price that is company wide.

Does anyone know if the games that say check shelf tag, will they be B2G1 or does it require an override (90%)?

From personal experience with deals like this, you can end up with games that technically aren't Clearance. What I mean is when games that you know for a fact are not Clearance but end up on the Clearance shelf/table, like Nintendo Selects.

I remember a few months ago when Kmart had a buy 1 Clearance game, get the 2nd 50% off sale. My local Kmart had a HUGE Clearance table with tons of games on there, and some were even priced at $30... kind of odd for Clearance. Anyways, I asked the cashier ahead of time and he said that everything on the table was indeed Clearance and part of the sale.

Long story short, that's how I ended up with Homefront and Zelda: Twilight Princess for $29.99, so don't be afraid to ask. It's too bad that the Kmart I frequent is downsizing their video games department... I've found a mountain of great, cheap games there.
Show me a bored mind and I'll show you a mind that lacks innovation.

You'll never win a fight with kmart customer service. Either you get the coupon or you don't upon purchase. You can always return if you don't.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

At mine, there were stickers for B2G1 free on a lot of items, including practically everything in their "dump bins" and some random $20-$40 games for various systems with tags on them too (and they said the name of the game on the tags too).

The site says it's valid for all systems. Worse comes to worse order online with 99 cent shipping.

He completely destroyed the clearance cycles at Sears and K-Mart, the only two places where clearance wasn't completely YMMV, and then vanished without a trace.
