Dang full array is good but no HDR10 even.

And you can never connect Vizio to the internet say to update firmware, as they record, like Shazam for video, any image displayed on your TV from any source in order to build a spyware profile on you and the shows you watch and for how long... bad for your privacy just watching mainstream TV, terrible if you ever were to view like baby photos , bathing your kids, childbirth , nudes from wifey, nudes you sent wifey on the screen from a USB stick.

Called a couple WMs and forgive me for not trusting the associates when they say they do not have the TVs. They are available on brickseek.

Are you crazy?!  You never call!

Sometimes you have to. When the PS4 Pro Destiny 2 bundle showed up for $199 at some stores, there was literally one walmart that showed it in stock for that price, just over 100mi away. I'm not driving two hours per way on the hopes brickseek is correct. I called the store, asked if the item was in stock, and they even offered to hold it for me due to the distance I was traveling.

Managed to get a decent deal by blind luck on my lunch break today.

$199 VIZIO 55" Class 4K (2160P) LED TV (D55un-E1)
https://brickseek.co...r?sku=415850944

Looks like the deal went up this morning at the store I stopped at. Barely managed to get one, as a flipper started loading the last 5 onto a cart as I was standing there.


For anyone in NE Ohio, it looks like the Macedonia store has 5 at the $199 mark. It's not in the budget for me right now, but hopefully someone can snag one

The Walmart I usually go to had clearance games on a random table with yellow balloons. The ps4 and xb1 games were at the rock bottom price of $19.96 or $19.98.


wat?

Found a couple in my area too. I don't have the cash, and even if I did it would probably be pure hell to try to claim one... this Wal-Mart is close to the border and many of the employees don't speak English terribly well. Ultimately it doesn't matter... I have two television sets already, and it's money I don't need to spend.

Struck out on the soundbars. They had a few but I watched the employee in electronics sell them all to his friend. I don't think they even had them out on the shelves.

Clearly got lucky with that tv. Stock went from 17 to 0 in a few hours. Crazy.

Battlefield 1 Revolution Edition finally at $19.88 online.

PS4:

XB1:

Been at $39.82+ since last year and only $29.99 on Black Friday. A few cents cheaper than the base game too!

 

The CoD infinite Welfare Legacy Edition is also around $10 cheaper than in-store.

PS4 ($28.75):

Maybe they're lying, but the stock count in Walmart's system isn't always accurate. I went to a Walmart trying to snag a clearance LG TV, they said they had none, BS showed 2, and many days later it still showed 2. It should have showed 0 by then if they set the TVs aside to buy themselves. So yeah, it does happen.

Since we're on sound bars lately, I grabbed this one for $54: https://brickseek.co...er?sku=52055511

Samsung HW-KM37 4.1 Channel 200W Soundbar System with 5.25" Wireless Subwoofer

The sub is a little weak, but it seems decent enough for $54. Hard to really complain when it's that cheap.

My store had guides for $2 each. I bought the following:

Dark Souls III
Fallout 4
Halo Wars 2
Mass Effect Andromeda
Metroid: Samus Returns
Prey - Collector's Edition
Super Nintendo (for the reissued mini one)

Most of the guides looked like they had been through a wheat thresher. Forget dog-eared pages. They looked like they had been a Doberman's chew toy.

Just snagged this HP Pavilion Desktop for $250. It's only discounted at couple stores near me, so ymmv.

https://brickseek.co...r?sku=782467792

I'll have to watch this one, about 10 in the area are down to $550. At $250 i'll bite.

 

 

Found this on SD.

It has been ages since I've had to think about it, but will in stock pick ups still adjust to in-store prices? Or am I remembering incorrectly?

that is my question as well, as the price no longer seems to adjust online to what brickseek claims it is.

Okay, in your situation, you definitely call.  If it's a long drive like that, it wouldn't really be worth going all the way there to strike out.  But if it's something fairly nearby, I don't think I'd chance the call.

Seems like this is a decent deal (maybe better than the one posted earlier). Am I missing something?

I was considering it but then I read on amazon that the space for a graphic card was really small.  As in less than 6 inches?  Has anyone else seen anything like this?

 

Edit read this -

 

"The power supply is just big enough for a GT 1030 graphics card"  And apparently someone was able to install a 1030 card which *just* fit inside.

 

Huh so maybe it's OK?

 

It's still $550 near me.  If I had a gift card I would go for it.

From my experience, the store you're picking up in has to have it in-stock for the adjustment to work. It wont work if brickseek says limited quantities or 0 - limited quantities. I did this when I bought Nioh. Paid around $40 online and when I picked it up in store, had it adjusted to the $10 price it had in store when they had a bunch of copies.


wat?

I can attest this is 100% true. Couple years back, I was looking for Metro Redux PS4 at a great price and went to a Walmart that showed it in stock. Not there. Went to a 2nd one that showed in stock. Not there. Went to a 3rd one. Not there. I eventually spoke to manager of the first store and he told me that is very often an issue with their online inventory (forget the complicated reason) and he apologized. For video games especially, I am still finding Walmart's online in-store inventory to be wrong on a regular basis.

Are all the guides paperbacks except Prey?

Yes. I don't really pay attention to guides, but Prey is the only hardback that I saw. I'm not even sure if this is a strategy guide sale across all Walmarts or not. There is a clearance area near the sewing and craft section at that store that has become a dumping ground for any kind of clearance items. The guides were under some other stuff.

Thanks I may try to find the SKU/UPC on brickseek to check if it's in stock and for $2

 

What zip code btw?

Was looking for one of the Samsung sound bars but discovered this instead.  Didn't need a new router, but will gladly have a backup for a ten spot...

Wow I would definitely get it at that price. It’s $40 around me.

I wonder how you found it for $10. I checked multiple zips and states, lowest I found was $19.

Somebody hide my wallet!! I just picked up the Harmony remote for $9. Also grabbed the 65" Samsung TV for $549 and a 55" Vizio for $199. Then I grabbed some Mario Sports 3DS games for $16 each at TRU. Threw a $7 Giana Sisters Wii U game in for good measure. Now I just need to get a hold of that Samsung Soundbar.

Which 65" tv would that be?
