Nothing of interest on clearance at my store today, but I did pick up:

PS3 - Tales of Symphonia Chronicles - $19.99

 

It was tagged as a 'temporary price-drop' and seems to be full price on Target.com so YMMV.

 

Tales of Xillia for PS3 was also tagged $19.99 (again, YMMV).

I was warned about, "The Beast" today when I went to my favorite Target to check the clearances.  The employee stated that "The Beast" dwells in the market aisles early procuring almost all of the best goods available to resell.

 

The employee saids he tries to get someone else to buy them just so "The Beast" can't.  Apparently he bought a lot of good stuff too.  :wall:

 

I just hope he doesn't want the video games. :pray:

Lol couldn't think of a medieval way to say the electronic clearance rack.  Apparently we both agreed that it wouldn't really matter that he's doing this but he makes up BS reasons on why he's buying the stuff instead of admitting he's a reseller.  "My kids sure can use 3 of these blu ray players" :roll:

Well if he admits it they'll put him in a cage outside the store and let people throw rotten fruit at him.  That and they would probably tell him he's no longer allowed to buy anything there.

Yeah, this is true but at the same time he's not fooling no one by buying multiple copies of items.  It is worth noting that this Target doesn't care how much you buy of clearance items.  Both of the main employees that work the electronic section stated that they just need them gone and sold at the end of the day.  This is probably why the guy has been doing it for what seems to be about a year (Based on the blu rays I was told he bought the whole stock of).

I picked up a Star Wars Limited Edition Xbox 360 for 40% off today.  It had a 15% off sticker underneath the 40%.  I just wanted to get some verification of the different clearance ladders.  I know most go 30-50-70, but the big buck items usually go 15-30-50 right?  Not that this would survive another drop, but am I right in thinking 50% is usually the lowest this would go?

I picked them up last year when the other special / limited edition x360 consoles and other consoles went on clearance. IIRC they hit 70% off, as I got the MW3 and GoW x360s for $90-ish, and the SW C3P0 and R2 ones for like $120-130ish

He sold them or intends to sell them, how does that make you feel? Nice and warm inside, raged with a bit of hate?

 

IATCG also wanted me to thank you for ruining all the Kmart clearance in PA.

Glad to see Jimi back with the thread and that the "Legend of El Hoardo" still lives on! 

 

Unfortunately the local stores have been pretty barren lately.  I did randomly see a DS Beyblade game on clearance for $13.xx.  I don't know anything about that series but it seemed like an older to me.  Probably from the value game section.  Just shows the sad state of Target clearance around here.

 

Just a random question about subscribing to threads now, are the instant email alerts and the daily email summaries completely broken?  I was never able to get them to work correctly since the site changed to this new format a while back.  All my old subscriptions became worthless and it made me stop bothering with the site as much. Always liked getting an email when someone posted a new drop on Monday.

Weird story today. If the guy who helped me today is on this forum thanks dude! But as a went into target today I went straight for clearance and as usual was disappointed. I noticed a couple walk by me first tho but I didn't see if they had anything. They actually had a stack of As Is skyward swords marked at $5.06. Didn't know about it until I got to the clearance and the guy from the couple just came up to me and handed me the stack saying "here man you could profit off of these." I was too in shock to thank him lol. If you on this forum thanks man!!! I picked em all up of course.

Tldr picked up a stack of $5.06 As Is skyward swords

Only bad thing about today was that someone picked up the 2 pw2s I had been eyeing for 2 weeks. Which means they probably hit $10

What does as-is means? Is it related to used games?
