Found PGR 4 for 5.06 and Telltales Jurassic Park for 7.06. Both for Xbox.


I'd love to find Jurassic Park for $7. I don't think my Target even carries it anymore though.

This is actually true. Ending in "4" indicates the final markdown before becoming "salvage". If there's only a few of an item, the team leader can opt to mark the item down again.


Worth noting, when Target "salvages" items, Ive seen a quite a number of items show up at Goodwill Thrift Stores. Target will donate some items their stores. Ive seen games show up from time to time. Games like Ice Age (X360), Singularity (X360) and Ive picked up DJ Hero 2 (X360/Disc copy only/SEALED - $5) and Test Drive Ferrari Racing Legends (X360/Sealed - $7.50) at Goodwill a few weeks ago.

Kinda off topic but is there any truth to this or anything even close? Saw it posted on FB and most of the time its fake. TIA.

So with Electronics scheduled on Monday, do they do it first thing in the morning or later in the day? Just wondering if Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning is the best time to look for Electronics clearance.

Just to set the record straight, Target does not donate these items to Goodwill. Goodwill has to pay for them.

My local grocery store chain buys Target crap to sell as well.

Every Target does NOT follow that price-drop schedule.

I've occasionally filled in on the Price Accuracy team. Backroom generally pulls the games on Sunday night and sets them in the back. PA usually gets to them around 8 or so, maybe later. They scan them, tag them and usually let them sit in the back until an Electronics team member has time to set them.

I used to work Monday and Tuesday nights on the Salesfloor, and usually wouldn't bother checking to see if they were out until Tuesday (yes, I suppose I could pull from the back... but it's fireable to do that)
I enjoy stuff a great deal.

I am pretty sure it is against company policy to have ANY clearance in the back rooms. So it will all be available by around noon-2pm. And the pricing team were the ones to tag and display them on the end cap of my store. I just had to keep it organized the best possible.

It kinda sucks that both of my local Targets never seem to have any games in Clearance, much less a Clearance section.

I found Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance for $10.06 at a local Target. I figure it couldn't hurt to try it out.

You should've tried the pre-order Disney Infinity for $1, get $10 off a Disney game deal.

Found an "AS IS" :ps3: NBA 2K13 for $7.56 today. I wonder how they decide what to slap an "AS IS" sticker on as it still scans for the regular price. I had to tell the cashier that it was suppose to be cheaper because she didn't see it.

I recently found out, after never seeing anything gaming wise/electronics on mondays~tuesdays, that Targets near me clearance electronics on Fridays. That or they don't really follow a schedule, stock piles of a bunch of unmemorable things in the clearance endcaps. picked up kilo headset for 20

Found Mod Nation racers for the Vita for $14. They also had TONS of AA and AAA batteries at $2.24 for an 8 pack I think it was. No other games were on the clearance rack or on display. I've been noticing at my local target they are not clearancing as many games as they used to.

PS3 blue tooth head sets were $18.
And a bunch of DS nintendo brand accessories were on clearance too.

This is central NJ.

Just got back from two targets and Resident Evil Revelations (3DS) rang up $20 at both locations. I was able to verify Mod Nation Racers PSV at just below $14.

saw Modnation racers vita for 9.98 as reported.

Also saw Rayman origins for 20.98 for vita. (The one I picked up was mis-marked for 9.98...so I got that one)

edit: I have this game on console but I hear its worth picking it up on vita?

There's 2 amazing Spider-Man sets at my Target for $32 each, I'll probably pick one up if it falls to that price. Mostly want it for the figures.
