I just got the Fred Meyer ad in the Sunday Paper. Selected video games 50% off. Ad specifically states that it excludes PS4 and Xbox 1 platforms. The ones listed in the paper are:

 

Just Dance 2014 for $20 (all platforms)

Lego Marvel $25 (all platforms, is 3DS less?)

Pokemon X/Y $20

Windwaker $25

Angry Bird Star Wars $20

 

I'm going to go check it out shortly and will try to update if there's more.

 

So for those of you who are buying console club nintendo codes for $$$, you might want to wait for pokemon x/y deals like this. I doubt this will be the only retailer selling them cheap this month... :)

I was just going to post about this. I went in when they first opened this morning and while they did not have the prices posted yet, they were cool enough to go through all the tags for me real quick and the games listed were the only ones they had tags for. While I didn't see the tags, the flyer says they are 50% off and that prices vary.

Anything half way decent besides Zelda and Pokemon X/Y?

I'm gonna try Best Buy as soon as I'm able. My BB's pretty generous so I might get the match.

Yep!  I just went to my Fred Meyer and picked up some games.  Thanks for posting!  They also had Battlefield 4 for $40 for all systems.  (Not that that's THAT great of a deal but...)

Just the games in the ad or are there any supprise ones? If Mario 3d world was $24.99 that would be a steal!

Had a $10 gift card from the Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze deal they had at release. Used that to spend $11 after tax on Pokemon Y today. Pretty good price.


We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Really want Wind Waker for this price. Being in California all I can do is submit the price to Amazon and hope.

I got it at this price today, was not marked on sale. All the Pokemon games were gone and were marked. If you can get them at best buy do it because the stock is almost gone!

They didn't have any copies of Pokemon or even a label for the game, but some copies of the Wind Waker were in stock.

Just a heads up if you have a Toy's R Us near you they price match FredMeyer.com .

 

http://www.toysrus.c...goryId=11949070

 

  • We will match prices from selected online competitor websites,
    including Walmart.com, Target.com, BestBuy.com, Sears.com, Kmart.com, buybuyBaby.com, Meijer.com, FredMeyer.com, diapers.com, BabyDepot.com, LEGO.com and Amazon.com (not including marketplace pricing).

 

I am not really sure about Best Buy though.

I couldn't see an add to cart button on the site. They might use that as an excuse.

Says they won't price match competitors % off discounts?

Just got back from TRU.  Picked up 2 of each Pokemon X&Y.  I haven't ever played pokemon before so I guess now is a good tie to start.  

 

If any CAGS want me to go back and pick them up a copy of pokemon PM me.

Pretty sure that its % off discounts that don't show the starting and final price. Most Stores are like this.

I see that it worked, it should work for every TRU. This is probably what you should show

them:

Show them the webpage of the item that you want rather than the add so they can not use the % off against you.

Thanks, OP.  There is a Fred Meyer right down the road from me.  I think I'll get Zelda for $25.

 

As a general rule, with all Fred Meyer ads, I generally say "In Store Only" in my thread title - it seems there's not many Freddy's on the east coast - and some people get a little agitated when they realize they can't just buy from the internet.  And those CAGs have let me know in the Freddy's threads that I've started.  ;)

I already got Pokemon X during the Black Friday sales, but I bought Y at Toys R Us in Times Square (in NYC) using the Fred Meyer's website for my boyfriend when he gets his 2DS. Thanks for the tip, OP!

Is $15 for lego marvel vita a good deal? I'm on the fence about getting it. I love the others in the lego series.

Still a little pricey for WWHD but I'd be willing to buy at that price, if only because my GC disc is worn out.

 

Too bad there's no store near me.  I suppose I could drive to TRU and try to get a PM but it hardly seems worth the effort :/


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

It took around 20 minutes, but I was able to call and placed an order for in-store pickup with the Price Match of Pokemon X. I'm debating if I should get Windwaker HD when I head to store. I doubt it'll be that low again any time soon even though I don't have a Wii U yet. :\

I'm not so sure.  Didn't the game sell poorly (or at least poorly by Zelda standards)?  And WiiU is hardly a hot commodity either.  Couple that with the fact that this is little more than an HD port most of us played 10+ years ago and I don't see it staying at $50 forever.  Of course, knowing Nintendo, they'd probably end the print run before lowering the price, but I'm wondering if we'll see a few more sales like this before that happens.

 

Besides, it not like virtually every other 1st party Nintendo game on WiiU hasn't devalued, at least temporarily.

my best buy honors price match from pretty much anywhere as long as it can be proven online or with ad. I have price matched fred meyer before no problems just have them put it under "Other" if there is no Fred Meyer on pos.
