I went to the Walmart in Andover, MN a week or so ago and found a number of games on clearance there. I picked up Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 for $9 and a USB-C extension cable for Switch for $5, looks to be $3 there now.

Been buying the USB-C extension cables by the ton when they hit $7, since I have quite a few USB-C devices. Another dozen or so sounds perfect.

LOL, but it's not uncommon to have a two story house and finished basement.

Thanks for posting the vacuum deals Jurai.   Got a Roomba 801 for $109 this morning for the upstairs.  The self checkout clerk, who has worked at the store for years along with his wife, thought something fishy was going on because of the $349 clearance price tag.  I told him it dropped in price and showed him on the Walmart ap.  Then I told him there was one left if he wanted to let his wife know.  Patted me on the back and said "Absolutely!"

Went for the Beef Jerky today at one near me.  First guy I asked told me all the jerky and slim jims were on the floor near the front or to check clearance.  Seemed really busy. I couldn't find them so asked another worker.  She told me to check the clearance section.  Asked another guy near the clearance section and he scans in some barcodes and takes me to the clearance section and said they should all be here. Nothing there.  I am over it at this point but make one last effort and call the store.  I get through to the head of the food department and tell him what's going on and I give him some upc numbers and he says the store should have them but he doesn't see any on the floor so he will go check the back.  5 min later, he comes back on and tells me he checked all over and could only find the $1 prime rib Jerky.  I didn't give him all the different UPC's but it turns out it's the very first guy I asked that helped me on the phone.  I met him and he handed me a box with 12 packages inside.  I thanked him and checked out. 

 

There is another Walmart that states they have a bunch in stock that I will be passing by tomorrow so I will try again.  This time, if I don't see them on the floor, I will give the person in the back all the UPC codes for all the different ones on clearance.  At least I was able to get something today.  My guy is telling me the other boxes are just sitting in the back somewhere buried but hey, the guy was nice enough to check for me and I have no clue what the back looks like so maybe it's a huge mess and it was a miracle he found anything.

Got all the items today via pick up for the Xbox One S bundle deal (that's now showing OOS). I think, however, I am going to return the unopened RDR2 game. I can probably get it cheaper anyway after the holidays (if not before). Either way, I didn't do bad I don't think with the system and 2 extra controllers (yes, they are wired but I don't mind that honestly).

Yes, big thanks for that post!  Also got an 801 for $109!  BS listed my next door store as limited stock and walmart's website listed no stock, but I looked anyway and there was one there marked $350.  The self checkout lady did a double take as she took off the spiderwrap and I thought she was going to deny the sale from her facial expression, but she went on her way.  My wife will love getting a vacuum for Christmas since it lightens her load.  Thought about getting a 680 at a store 25 minutes away for the finished basement, but thought I should just replace the battery in our old 400 series instead.  It died when it was in storage for four months when we moved and we never replaced it.  After some looking online, the $25ish replacement batteries seem to die within 3-6 months and the OEM batteries are $70.  Might as well try for the $79 680 instead.

 

Not super happy with the vacuum we bought when we moved so I'm going to look into those vacuums as some are available around here, too.

 

Thinking about that Sanyo 4K player, but I did just get an Xbone X.  Heard stand alones are generally better.  May get it and then see what BF deals shake loose.  There's an LG that hits $80 or so every so often.

Hey guys got a question. For those who got the Fallout 76 Collectors Edition preordered from Walmart what day does your package say it's supposed to arrive?

Need a new office chair, especially for once we move in Jan!  Hmm, may have to check quick tomorrow since our bus stop is that Walmart.  Not making a special trip tonight though, but it sucks I was JUST up there.

CAG has turned into slick deals. The desperation has got as low as vacuums and beef jerky. 

well most CAG will need a vacuum for all the cheetos and Doritos crumbs they leave behind....

I tend to buy stuff other than video games because I'm an adult, and it's nice to get the cheap disposable shit most stores sell these days at a discount. Keep the non-gaming deals coming.

If these guys aren't trying to save money on the other items that they buy regularly, they're doing it wrong. The less money that you spend on other items, the more money you have left over for gaming purchases. It's not anyone's fault that the chains don't have more clearance deals on video game stuff. The heyday of those types of constant widespread clearances is over. Stores don't order as many copies of games as they used to. They better head back in time to when Circuit City and Toys R Us were still open if they want to see that. So we can only take what we can get clearance-wise.

I am happy to save money on anything. I definitely don't mind the non-gaming deals.

My local Walmarts never have games on clearance. Everything I find at them on clearance is non-gaming related. Got a nice 4K TV on clearance earlier this year thanks to a Brickseek link on here.

One of the MSI gaming laptops. 256GB SSD+1TB HDD original price $1200 is ringing up 50% off at $599 at my store. I can't for the life of me remember which one though and I didn't have the foresight of taking a picture of the barcode. I'll see if I can get a barcode tomorrow if anybody's interested. And I'm almost positive I remember it being OOS online at walmart.com.

could be reposts, saw them in clearance sections at local stores, of particular note you'll probably want a LAN adapter if you're gonna take Super Smash Bros Ultimate online, and this is cheaper than the Plugable brand one + no wait for shipping

Found a few games on clearance at a local Walmart (Kings Canyon Rd Fresno CA)

 

:ps4: Final Fantasy XIV Complete  $15

:ps4: Batman: The Enemy Within $10

:ps4: Elite Dangerous $10

:ps4: Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package $10

:ps4: Steep $5

:ps4: Styx: Shards of Darkness $5

:ps4: MLB: The Show 18 MVP Edition  $20

:xb1: Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition $5

:xb1: Torment: Tide of Numenera $10

:xb1: Tom Clancy's The Division $5

:switch: Sine Mora EX $10

 

There were plenty of other games on clearance besides these but were less impressive in value or Farming Games up the wazoo.  The Switch clearance was not that impressive either (usual suspects like Poi, Cartoon Network titles etc). 

 

Grabbed the last copy of Batman, Styx & Dark Souls III BTW for anyone local.  Hope this helps!

For those who bought the Huawei MediaPad T3 8", is it good for watching youtube videos and browsing the net for like Amazon, Bestbuy and other retail sites? I don't plan to game or download anything? Does it run smooth?

It's been ok for me so far other than wishing I could flash to a pure android rom
