This is not game related but I was able to grab one of these since I believe a newer one was released. This seems to be $300 everywhere else so it might not be available to all. The headphones are cool but well see how they last.  Sony Headphones.JPG

One store near me shows $105 but OOS

It might show that but maybe good to check your Target. Two weeks ago, I went to Target and saw the headphones (three of them) each for $245 since it was 30% off. I took a picture for the number and went home. Checked brickseek and it show OOS as well but they were at the store. A week passed by and the price dropped to $175 and I went and grabbed one. It still showed OOS but there was one left at my Target. Seems brickseek was off. It's 50/50 chance though. I like checking brickseek even for items I won't get because I want to know if the inventory is correct, in this case it wasn't.

Yeah, Brickseek is all over the place on inventory accuracy, it shows nendoroids as OOS for months but they were sitting there on the shelf, swooped in when they got deep discounted

I'm starting to not trust BS. It told me a comforter set was 70% off at $26.98 and when I go to the store it's only 50% off at $44.98. I don't even know how they got that price since the store's own scanners say $44.98.

TBH I have no earthly idea how BS is collecting data, I know the guy who runs it supposedly works or did work 'at' a Walmart, how they're getting this seemingly unlimited access to pricing data at every store in these companies is beyond me unless they're tapping some internal api systems they somehow gained access to, or they are paying someone inside the company to funnel data

Their datas are tapped into the mobile app API, while accurate as it is, it is heavily depended on the employees who tasked to adjust the price. Think of the lower prices you see on Brickseek or in the mobile app as an internal price memo sent out by upper management, let it be from corp, district, region or even specific store manager. The next step would involves specific employees who going around with pricing gun, they have to accept and apply the new prices to applicable items.

Given that comforter at your store already hit 50%, I say give it a few days until they apply the 70% price.

Yes if it is still only 50% off, check in a few days as the price will drop but the employee just haven't gotten to update the price. Brickseek has worked most of the time for me so I won't blame Brickseek as it does help if I want to get something not in my town.

All of BS information is directly from retailers piggybacking off their internal websites (desktop site, mobile apps, in store scanners, etc). So the information on scanners work from a website that is only accessible for the most part in those stores. Some of BS information is just mass info from Target, Walmart ,lowes, etc websites that all customers have access to (I.E. Walmart.com). For example on Walmarts website you can check stock of local stores, BS just access that line of code that allows that to happen directly from Walmarts website and runs it multiple times for zip codes in the area to get stock numbers from a certain radius.

Think of it as BS is accessing lines of code and organizing multiple strans of information into one convenient place.

Even with that information, stores still have to manually drop prices (on some items, not all itmems need to be dropped by the pricing team) on items, update inventory count, remove items that are deleted, etc. BS isn't wrong, it's stores that aren't updating as they arrested suppose to.

Hmm. Those WH-1000X headphones are coming up to $104.98 at a Target that's remodeling near me.

For that price it is worth it. It challenges the Bose qc35 in noise cancelling and sound quality is superior to Bose. However, people say the Bose is better in comfort. It retails for $350 and bestbuy has it for $300 still. Like someone earlier said, you can use your hand to swipe the right ear cup up or down for the volume and double tape to pause play music. Swipe forward to go next song or back to go previous song. It works well with my Xperia XZ Premium.

I bought that Logitech g603 mouse at my target. If they go down in price some more from its current 50% off, can I go in and get a price adjustment and some money back?

So this seems like a major score on my end...but now I need a cable modem to pair with it. Any recommendations that won't bust the budget?

The cable modem/router unit that we currently have sucks major balls.

Picked it up tonight for $59.98 (the clearance tag still showed $139.98 but it scanned lower on phone and at the price checker). Saw the same unit for $199.99 at Best Buy right afterwards. šŸ˜

Brickseek showed it oos at the store I got it at too.

I saw Deux Ex for Xbox One for $9 and a Mario Switch carrying case for $8. Passed on both. First gaming related items I've seen on clearance at Target in awhile.

The employees just haven't marked the price down yet.  At Target it is done manually.  Means if you wait some days or a week, it will be that price.

I believe it's advertised as speeds up to 250mbps. The ruoter I got was overkill (but made sense at that price).

Thanks for the tip.

ya the 6183 can do upto like 650mbit, just make sure it supports your ISP's tech before you pull the trigger

I just tried on Android and it works when spoofing GPS location.

Don't you have to be in the store to see the store prices on the app?

Fake GPS on android, set your location to the store. Load Target app. You may have to restart the app to get it to work

I just got a new router two months ago, after ten years using an older one! Unfortunately Iā€™m having issues with it and have already had to call support for help with it. Got the TP Link Archer C9, and with factory settings my wired internet is slower than wireless and I lose the ability to stream 4K. Also it randomly disconnects/reconnects my wired devices once every hour.

I might hunt for this Linksys you posted about since the one I used for a decade was also a Linksys router, the tried and true WRT54GS. Every single store around that shows it at $60 shows 0 stock though your comment made me hopeful BS may be wrong.
