There is a trade-in bonus actually, the web site was updated today to show 100% trade in credit in-store.

 

I'm absolutely disgusted by it though, as YESTERDAY I checked the trade-in credit for New Super Mario Bros U, and it was $20.  Today with the 100% trade in?  It's down to $12.   Makes me sick.  

 

In what universe is getting 24 dollars worse than getting 20?

In a world where it was 20 dollars WITHOUT any sort of trade in bonus, that's where.

 

They drop the trade-in prices when they give a trade-in incentive.  If your reading comprehension skills are zero, stay the hell out of the conversation.

I updated the post with the SE thing.

 

Also, if it matters, the ad advertised reservations for Xbox One games Ryse, Forza 5, and Dead Rising 3.

Is the ad up on their website? Can't seem to find it.

 

Direct link to page on walmart.com, kind of small though:

You can also go to walmart.com, click on Weekly Ad at the top, slide the horizontal slide bar to pages 24-25, then print out the page.

Some Walmarts might be offering a better deal on the 250 GB SS PS3 models... Just placed one of the bundles in their layaway program, since my phat 80GB PS3 is YLOD....

I really hate the move most stores have made from launch-day deals to pre-order ones.  Used to be you could walk into BB not to long ago (and Circuit City before it tanked) and get $10-20 gc's the day or sometimes even week of launch.  Seems like today the only real deal besides posters is TRU.  I mean I guess it's nice since we buy diapers and formula and stuff there but I just wish BB (where I trade stuff in) had a deal.  

 

Only good thing is I could always got to TRU, get RDR or something free, trade that in at least.  Bad thing is my TRU never gets many copies of new games in, and then usually don't restock for a while either.

I was also able to PM the Wal-Mart ad at Target and got GTA V SE for $59.96. My Target only had 3 copies of the SE. Got the poster too :)

My free copies from the BBY glitch are supposed to arrive today, but I also did get 1 of each version of the Special Edition at Target today for $59.96 via pricematch to Walmart's ad along with the posters.  They limited me to one of each due to PM and low quantity, though I'm not sure these will ever be worth getting more of to resell as this no doubt had a huge print run for a special edition, and saving $20 + Target redcard discount really isn't all that spectacular.  Better than the people in front of me who were buying copies of the regular version for full price though.

To price match, do you need a physical ad or can you use a digital version of the ad for that week?

I got away with using a digital version of the ad. The Target employee couldn't find it for sale on Wal-Mart's website and had to ask for an override due to the price difference - manager seemed a little suspect of it but luckily she was busy and just punched in her code real fast to finish the transanction.

Physical ad would be ideal, but there are only a couple of Walmarts in LA and they are way out of my way and so ghetto that when I've tried to get their ads before in store for crazy price misprints for pricematching they've rarely had the ads.  So I just had it ready to go on my phone with these links:

 

Page 24 and 25 walmart ad

 

Page 24 specifically

 

I went to a Target where they are very lenient on PMs and do them right in the electronics section with supervisor/manager override so no need to take it to Customer Service.  I have the Walmart ad page 24/25 of 27 up on my phone browser, as well as just page 24.  Told the guy about the $59.96 sale price at Walmart, he asked if it was for the Special Edition and I said yep, here take a look.  Handed him the phone with page 24 and he zoomed in and confirmed, had his partner who I guess was a supervisor or manager approve the override and he set the price to $59.96 on them.  My Michael posters are a little dinged up though.

Well no Walmarts here in NYC, but picked up my GTA vanilla at BB. Burned $35 in shopkick to knock it down significantly.  Awesome gaming ahead.

I don't suppose anyone just happens to have any experience price-matching Kmart deals at Target, eh? I know they aren't included among the very specific list of retailers Target's confirmed to PM, but I really don't wanna spend ~$15 in gas to get a 10 dollar copy of Gears 3.

 

Edit: Nevermind, didn't realize that it was in stock on the Kmart site *and* with 99 cent shipping. Saved me some hassle.
