There's a huge rack of games with NCF shelf tags that have been sitting at $19.99~29.99 for months.
A lot of them are games people have reported being on clearance in the past too.
I've actually tried scanning a few of them just in case but they all come up at $19.99~29.99.
I wish they'd drop em already! :S


Same at my store in another state. Wonder what's going on.

They're not video games but last week I picked up:

K'nex Mario Circuit Ultimate Building set - $32.98
K'nex Mario & Luigi Starting Line set - $14.98
K'nex Mario & DK Circuit Start Line set - $17.98

MSRP for the 3 sets is $220. I bought them for $66+tax.



MSRP as my store, checked tonight. Must be your store only.

Everytime I see this thread it makes me sad...

My Target has been a ghost town for clearance since before Black Friday. I go there every week to see nothing, couldn't even tell you when the last time I found anything worth my money.

For example the only game in clearance this week was (PS3) Medal of Honor Warfighter marked down to $40

Can anyone explain this more recent phenomenon I keep seeing at local targets -

They have started piling a bunch of old games in the traditional 'clearance' areas of the electronics section, but instead of being marked down or discounted in any way, they're all full price and have absolutely no clearance tags. These areas keep growing, with more and more games, dvds, etc being shelved there but there are no discounts whatsoever.

My initial thought, as this trend started pre-Black Friday, was that they were building up stock for their usual BF clearance 'sale' ... however, this trend has continued at a number of Targets around my area and the stuff just sits there, without tags, until it usually just disappears. Any ideas?

That's incredibly bad, since that game was just on a nationwide sale for $20 last week, all platforms.

I decided to scan a copy of MVC3 for PS3 tagged $9.98 last night and it came up $5.98! :)

Still nothing else on clearance at my local store though. :S

Haven't seen a game at Target clearance in a long time....


Anyone know if a rain-check is one-time use only, or would it work again?

You get a rain check to purchase a specific number. So if you get a rain check for 9 widgets, they will sell you 9 widgets at the sale price. If you buy 5 on one transaction your rain check is still valid for 4 more widgets at the sale price.

For only one item the rain check expires after use.

No, only way to get it for that price is if it is still tagged for 21

How easy / hard is it to get Target to in-store match their online prices? Because Uncharted 2 is really cheap on their web site.

Its been up on the website for that price for almost 2 years now haha. It can be done, but it is YMMV as that particular item is marked as clearance, and thus makes it hard to price match.
Up the Gunners!!!!!
I am Cheap, therefore I buy Cheap.

Target's new policy allows them to PM their website so it's completely easy. However, they're still not supposed to PM stuff that isn't in stock, so they might not do it.

Nothing of note at my target yet again. They've got about 60+ assorted calendars sitting on the clearance shelf at around 3-5 bucks a piece. They'll never move that crap.

Yeah, I saw Hugo blu ray last night too and the weird thing is that it wasn't marked as an "as-is" clearance. I've never seen a DVD/blu ray on clearance that wasn't marked "as-is"

It has to do with Paramount movies being distributed by Warner now. So any movies that have the Paramount logo are likely to be clearanced.

Only game I saw was DJ Hero 2 that they need to just salvage already. Things been on clearance for months.
