Well it looks like some have finally dropped near me so I know what I will be do today. Also since other people are offering so will I but it looks like there are "possible" multiples I could grab so if anyone would be interested in Super Smash Bros Brawl or Fantasy Life let me know and I could grab some if there are any when I finally go.

I’d love a copy of SSBB if you can grab an extra. Not sure I’d have much to trade, but if there’s something in particular you’re looking for, PM me and let me know.

Tried grabbing Pokemon Y, Ruby and Smash Bros and the cashier said they were not scanning despite me seeing the correct price on the screen. Now they all say N/A. RIP. Other games like Radiant Historia now say "limited stock" and appear to be marked back up to MSRP.

Any thoughts on this tv? Would be family room tv, not for gaming.

 I know you don't want to hear this and as a Walmart associate myself. Just buy your TV at Best Buy. It's going to be higher quality. I get SO MANY tvs returned at Walmart a day. I bet the amount I get a day is what a regular Best Buy gets in a week or more.

I went back to that walmart I mentioned last time to pick up Liar Princess and the Blind Prince. (Which .com had the Limited Edition ps4 package for $39.99 but is now OOS) https://www.walmart....32007/674378400

 

And found that elusive copy of Doom for $10 that I was looking for. So yippy!

Only exception would be the OLED models or Samsung Q models. I’m honestly surprised Walmart sells OLED TVs, are they a specific Walmart model or are they actual B8s?

That is exactly what happened to me the other night when I checked on games such as Fantasy Life at Walmart.  I was pissed because Walmart is not close to me, and I wasted gas going over there after work.  But, the cashier that helped me was the same one who sold me the $12 copies of Doom for Switch on Black Friday, and she didn't bat an eye at the price that day.  So, I assumed that she was being honest and would have sold them to me for $3 if she could have.  She probably could care less about playing or owning games.

Went back to the same store I was at earlier this week and noticed some more clearance games/tags. The reason I put "tags" is that there were a few empty spots where games had been marked down and apparently sold.

 

Switch

 

Disgaea 5 Comp - $5(none available)

Cave Story - $5(none available)

Super Bomberman - $5(none available)

Ben 10 - $5(none available)

Batman Telltale Series - $5(1 avail)

Adv Time Pirates - $5(1 avail)

Poi Explorer Ed - $5(1 avail)

 

 

XO

 

We Happy Few - $20

 

3DS

 

Fire Emblem Fates Conquest - $9

 

 

And while not video game related or even a "deal", this store finally put out the White Chocolate Snickers.... :D/

i’ll add my 2 cents fwiw to the tv convo, 1) the best place to buy a higher tier tv (despite tax) imo is costco 4 yr warranty using their visa and 7 yr if you buy squaretrade. we bought a 65 samsung js8500 for our living room that has been great (last 3d tv and unique color model exclusive to costco) 2) for a guest bedroom tv we just bought the 43” 4k toshiba fire tv from best buy via google express for $192 after promo/taxes. so far so good for a budget tv, remote has buttons for netflix, prime video, hbo, and vue. built in guide button for ota tv, 4k, hdr compatible (meh), built in snappy fire tv 3) for ease, i go rtngs.com and follow their calibration for the tvs and then adjust if need be.

I really don't get the radiant historia situation. According to brickseek it was marked down and six copies were available. Soon after the price is back to MSRP and it says limited stock despite not selling any copies. I checked again just now. Oh well. At least I got a launch copy of The Binding Of Isaac and Cave Story.

That's still pretty good.  The only deal I got when I went there was for those little 50 cent fruit pies that come in the cardboard boxes that they sell at the front of the store.  But I paid MSRP, and those little pies really aren't that good.   :cold:

So went in and looked and they only had most recent games behind the glass the rest was thrown in a plastic cases in a large bin. So half an hour later I could only find 1 Alpha Sapphire and 1 Fantasy Life. I ended up asking and said if they aren’t in the bins or behind glass we don’t have them. So not a total waste but still wished I could have found more as brickseek said there were more.

Still waiting on drops at my store. Don't feel good about it though, as no less than 3 people came to check with brickseek up on their phone while i was there. If the sketchy electronics employees don't gett them instantly the lurkers probably will.

Anyone else having a problem with Super Smash Bros Wii U being marked back up to 59.96? All the stores I saw it at for $3 are now showing it back at regular price

So I waited on posting this one until I found out it it was worth it. Walmart around the corner from me has had a voice activated security camera bundle from Altec Lansing on clearance for a couple days. It's $25 at some stores around here, $20 at one, and $50-60 elsewhere (original price was $100). You get an IP camera and a smart speaker (Google Home based) for (in our case) $25. We needed an extra "nanny cam" for when our niece and nephew stay with us, and this seemed like a good option. Can't complain about getting what will amount to another Bluetooth speaker for us, either. The camera quality is actually surprisingly good and I kinda want to go back and get another one.

Nice find. This is $45 at all the Walmarts in a 90 mile radius.

Just dropped by the Fuquay-Varina, NC store and saw a bunch of clearance on a table by the electronics counter. Most of the games were $15 with a few being less. I picked up Mafia III: Deluxe Edition for Xbox One and 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand (X360) for $15 each.

I also found what was supposed to be a copy of Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest for $19 at the Knightdale, NC store but discovered when I got home that someone stole the game and repackaged it for return. Bleh.

Managed to get fantasy life and Fire emblem awakening yesterday.

Already picked up Y and ruby.

Found that 1 gs near me had the small new 3ds for $100 so I bit and now I have to figure out how to get my old account on it.

Thank you 1888. I wish they were that low around me. Cheapest is 53% off in the $40 range and $70 for the larger one.

I’d chance it for $20 ish. The reviews for it are atrocious though.

I'm thinking about getting that backpack cooler. The reviews are terrible, the zipper seems pretty low quality, but $10 may still be worth it.

3 left in Parma after I left last night for sure. There were 7 or 8 there on Thursday, so obviously other people know that they stash one or two good electronics clearance items in the corner in between TV mounts lol

If you are monitoring what everyone around you is doing on their phones then it sounds like you are the lurker.
