I was able to grab 4 more 360 copies of NCAA for $5.99 eqxh, 1 PS3 copy for the same, and 3 copies of Tiger Woods 12 The Master for the Wii which is worth $12. Paid $5.99 for that too. All in all spent $48 with tax and get $150 in store credit!

Thanks! Going to try to convince the one on my way home from work to sell me Game and Wario, won't be my first time trying so maybe they will finally just do it!

 

EDIT: They wouldn't sell it to me. They said they will only sell games when they have more than one copy.

Just stopped by the store by me. Every Xbox 360 game (with one or two exceptions) was marked as 7.99 or 3 for 21. Not sure if this is new or not, but hadn't seen it at my store until today.

Two or three stores within a ~90 minute radius did that right around the holidays.  Massive Wii, PS3, and 360 purge - good times!  Other stores, including some in the same towns, haven't put a single thing on sale.  The inconsistency drives me insane.

So are these for sale in the system in every store?  We've still got one area store where the DS games still ring up for $7.99 a pop, so I'm completely in the dark about how their system operates anymore.

They are in the system ay those prices but the teller might not sell them because they did the know they can, the game rents out too often, they are lazy, or they simply might only price games when instructed by corporate. All of the games I listed are in the system for 9.99 or less. Often has to do with the store manager.

I’ve never really done flipping before. Will GameStop accept multiple copies of the same game?

B1G150% on all video games until 7/15/18. Gamer Appreciation Day is on the 15th as well meaning you can rent any game for free for 5 nights. Limit 1 per account/family. Some newer/more popular games will have a $20 deposit.

Most PS3, 360, and Wii games are priced at $7.99, so it’ll be roughly $12 for two last gen games. Definitly YMMV, but tons of last gen games have good values at GameStop.

I’ll try to update the list of what’s for sale. Been slacking for a few months (maybe years) now haha.

Picked up quite a bit over the last few months..  Very YMMV on first party nintendo games (Protected).  Ask if they have a list of games that are to be marked for sale (YMMV), or ask to see if some games are available for purchase(hasn't been rented in 90 days). 

 

Farming Sim 15

Monster Jam 

Monster Jam POD 

Amazing Spider man 2 360

Spider Man WOS 360

Zoo Tycoon 

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 360 

Just to name a few...

YMMV Gamer appreciation day. Free 5 night game rental and 2 weeks half price rentals.

I bought No Man's Sky for $10

Edit: They also have signs "Late fees? Let's make a deal. This weekend only."

Just visited the worst Family Video I've ever been to. Albamarle, NC so you don't waste your time. They had maybe 7 games for sale.

Vampyr is on sale for $19.99 if they have more than one copy on either system. Couldn’t pass up that price. I just see this game sort of being like Kingdom Come where it won’t get a price below $34.99 for a long time in most stores.

Didn't see anything game wise, but I did pick up a complete GoT Season 5 on bluray for $12.99.

 

Also, they changed their hours.  Instead of midnight they now close at 10.   :-x

Nioh PS4

Dark Souls 3 PS4

Somewhat happy that my job has me travel. I was in a different town and swung by a family video and found a copy of Vampyr. Super interested in this since it's release but was not willing to pay full price. $20 is a steal considering you can trade it for what you pay if you don't like it! Thanks for the heads up on it. I wouldn't have gone to that store had it not been posted.

*Every* semi-local store has done the 3/$21 last gen purge EXCEPT my local store, which is a goldmine.  Literally every store within a 90 mile radius except my local store and a sister store 20 miles away managed by the same manager. 

 

Last week she was hitting me up about the movies she was putting sale stickers on, and I mentioned that I was more looking for games these days, and mentioned the fact that every store but hers seemed to be clearing out space (I had just been through the Springfield, MO area stores a week earlier due to a business meeting I had there). 

 

"That's weird, they've never told me to do that."  

 

I have no reason to believe she was lying, but how would she be the *only* store manager across 90s miles and three states to NOT be told to clear out some last gen stuff?

Bad management lol. All PS3, 360, and Wii games should be Rent 1, Get 1 Free and priced at $7.99 / 3 for $21 unless they’re a Nintendo game or super popular like GTA, COD, Madden, etc.

1) Is there a way to contact someone further up the chain of command and innocently ask why that's not happening?

 

2) So the odds she *was* lying to me are stronger than I thought?

I went to check out my local family video earlier tonight and found they closed up shop. I haven't been there for several weeks, but am curious if they had a closing sale at all.

1) You could call corporate, but that’s a d*ck move imo haha.

2) She could be lying or just doesn’t care about the video game section of the store. I knew some managers who weren’t gamers and did the bare minimum in that section. All you really can do is keep to waiting until they eventually get rid of those sections, if ever ;(

My main store closed up shop and prices were crazy cheap. During the last few days, it was 10 items for $10. You could mix video games, movies, tv series, candy, pop, etc. and everything was essentially $1 each. It was glorious.

The location I am talking about is in New Hope, MN. I guess I should have paid more attention. The last time i was there, they were selling a bunch of movie for $1-2 and picked up a bunch of those. The next closest stores are a bit out of the way.
