Hey Jurai, I've a question for you. Before Brickseek did their latest website update it used to show the percentage of stores that had stock of a game. Does it show that info as an upgraded member? For example it would show 34% of stores in stock on a certain title. Just curious if they totally did away with that or just restricted it to upgraded users?

the Pricing Records page shows stock info, this is from Attack on Titan 2:
 

Store Availability
Discounted: 99%
In Stock: 75%
 
Pricing Records
High Price: $39.82
Low Price: $1.00

 

I do not see that info on the regular inventory search page though, Pricing Records page is pay walled behind Premium or above membership I believe

Yes, the availability is what I was asking about. It used to be visible to all but I guess they made it available to upgraded members now.

Sigh.  A store in my area which currently has over 40 "missing" clearance games at up to 95% off finally clearanced out some games I knew they had in the glass case. Of course they pulled them from the glass case yesterday and somehow "lost" over 15 games as of this morning.  

 

You'd think when you're already missing 40 games you would say "Maybe we should not put these out where people can steal them" but i guess not...

Not into Transformers, but I've been kicking myself the last two weeks for passing up a $7 Optimus Prime Walmart exclusive that was originally $50. Same goes for the $5 Q-bert mini-arcade I saw.

So I saw the Prime today sitting on the shelf, the box now slightly damaged, and they for some reason marked it back up to $50.

 

In fact, everything that was marked clearance a few weeks ago is back to their normal prices.

 

Some manager must've had a hissy fit.

I'm going to look for the 30 dollar one.
If I find one at a store do you want me to ship you one?

Kind of you to offer! But I was looking specifically for the Verizon phone, since that's the service she's using. If you'd like to get that, PM me and we'll go from there. Thanks!

Walmart wouldn't sell me the $30 phone without buying a plan with it, deal breaker for me

Call corporate. You do not need to buy a plan on those phones since it is the full price of the phone. You can activate it at home as with any phone that isn't bought on contract.

Good to know, that's what I thought but they insisted I had to buy the minimum virgin plan to get the phone, didn't feel like arguing since I didn't really know much about prepaid phone

I found am Afterglow wireless Wii U pro controller for $8. That was all they had for clearance in my area. Good deal if you are looking for one and can find it.

The worker selling me the Virgin mobile phone asked me if I already had a plan with Virgin mobile and I told her yes. They sold me the phone without having to activate it.

Guess I could just said yes, either way sounds like they were trying to get me to sign up on the spot as some kind of commission

Was it a regular worker in blue or one in a black shirt? I think the person in a black shirt works on commission just selling phones.

I would try another worker if possible. I was able to unlock the bootloader on my phone, so it is possible to use another carrier and root the phone.

 

Thanks for all the non game deals that you post.

I might go back today, if the store even still has them, only two were in stock, I wanted to buy both to run as extra devices for trivia games and he shot me down then wouldn't sell me one without a plan too, neither seemed that logical to me to deny a sale in that fashion.

Yeah, mine have are either in a dedicated clearance aisle or a clearance end cap in the section

Someone needs to teach Wal-Mart the difference between "in stock" and "out of stock," because they sure as hell don't know. Wal-Mart's own web site claims they have five of those Moto E4 phones in the Nogales area, but they were nowhere to be found, either in the electronics department or the Verizon Prepaid meta-store. I even called them last night! The manager said they had it! 

 

That nutty conspiracy theory about Wal-Mart employees storing stuff in the back for their own consumption doesn't seem so nutty anymore. Screw Wal-Mart, and screw their ineptitude and/or malice.
