I did, I printed out the UPC and checked it at a price check machine to make sure it was $9 before getting an employee to unlock the case and get the game.

There’s an app for that. 😉

Splatoon for Wii U is now $9 at some stores. I was hoping it would eventually be marked down again from the $19 price.

Thanks! On my way to get it.

True, unless you let them. I don't remember who it was, but I recall (if I remember right) someone here telling the story of how on the way out of the store the receipt checker saw the prices, took the games off of them, and then they went along with the situation as the staff made them return the games.


Yup that was me. Go along with it is kind of a strong term though. Not much to do with security standing right there and everyone looking at you like you're a thief. The manager literally took them from my hand and did a return back to my card with the receipt from the behind the register and told me I wasn't allowed to have them. Might have raised a bigger fuss if it wasn't a bunch of copies of Other M but yeah I've had my share of Walmart employee nightmares. The people here act like clearance savings are deducted straight from their paychecks.

That can be really frustrating, my local Kmart doesn't have them anymore either and I am always asking for price checks at customer service because the shelf tags are often wrong.

 

There’s an app for that.

Thanks for the suggestion, it would be a lot easier than printing out the codes. I have used printed UPC codes for probably close to 10 years and never even thought to see if there was an app.

I don't want anyone coming off as saying "internet tough guy" though I will say I will not stop if I'm ever approached by a walmart greeter. Legally they have no right to stop you for any reason when you leave walmart. Now Sams club on the other hand is different, you agreed to have you receipt checked in your paid membership, so you don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to bypassing them.

 

Whenever I have shopped at a walmart (which is never, I just have gone to hunt deals), I make my purchase in electronics, and walk right out the front door. Just keep walking, ignore the receipt checker, and continue on with your day.

Found the Splatoon (Wii U) for $9 tonight, and saw they had Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U) for $15 clearance as well.

Super Mario Maker for Wii U is $11.

After I bought Splatoon and the last copy of Mario Tennis, I just checked Brickseek on every Wii U title that they had in the glass case. That's how I discovered Super Mario Maker was marked down.

I'm pretty excited because I just started using my Wii U again after a year of not turning it on. I have most of the Nintendo-produced games backlogged from a previous Best Buy sale, and since I probably will never own a Switch because the price is too high in my opinion, playing through its library as a patient gamer including the three cheap games that I picked up tonight will be awesome.

I, for one, am glad that the Wii U is on the Wii out at Walmart. ;)

Was referring to the "would they stop you going out the door". If they stop you during the transaction that is different. They have the right to refuse sale. If you have them in a bag with a receipt in hand, they can't do shit.

OIC...my bad. I was just referring to the security in the Walmart video game section, which might be better than any Border Wall, to be honest. They just don't let games leave their station...in my experience. Most of the games I've seen there are behind the glass, but if I do happen to take one off the shelf, they have stopped me on my way to pay at the front of the store or to continue my shopping, so the game can be rung up in Electronics. I guess I can't blame them, cause games are a big theft target.

 

True, unless you let them. I don't remember who it was, but I recall (if I remember right) someone here telling the story of how on the way out of the store the receipt checker saw the prices, took the games off of them, and then they went along with the situation as the staff made them return the games.

Wow...that is nuts. If you pay for items and are on your way out the door, they legally belong to you. What can they do if you refuse to re-enter the store? Surely they can't call the police. Money and product have changed hands and the transaction is over.

How do I go about doing this or having an app that I can pull up the UPC codes? 

 

A few Walmarts near me won't pull anything up on the app when in store so this is really helpful to have.

As promised, here’s the list of 3¢ Walmart games: I basically went back into the thread when they first started showing up and scanned the posts for titles and BS links. Surprisingly, some of the links came up with current results not too far from me, though the vast majority of them appear to be dead. Also, this seems to be true based on a couple titles, but it stands to reason that if a game is 3¢ on one platform (aka PS3), chances are it’ll be 3¢ on another platform as well (360, Wii, etc.). Hopefully someone snags something good with this!

https://brickseek.co...r/?sku=49423004

So that is Kirby Planet Robobot, Pokemon Sun, Pokemom Moon, and now this.

Weird clearance. I wonder what else dropped and when they will drop again.

Add Dragon Quest 7 and 8 to the $32 list.

Argh!  Was just at my WM showing it in stock earlier today and I almost always scan them because they're in the "cheap aisle".  Today I was in a rush and didn't scan...  If somebody picks it up after I've been eyeing it for this long waiting for a drop..............well....well, I'll get over it haha, my backlog is so big probably shouldn't pick it up anyway.

All the Walmarts around me dropped Fire Emblem Conquest and Birthright to $19.

I found Kirby Rainbow Curse for $19 at a Walmart, I was so happy to see that not at $40 because Canvas Curse for DS was the only Kirby game I've ever enjoyed.

 

I like how both Target and Walmart are clearancing most of their 3DS and Wii U games as they should, but are meticulous about it in a strange way.  Sure there are a couple 3DS games that are new and shouldn't be clearanced, but Wii U? Oh no, can't clearance Pokken for Wii U, it might sell what, 3 more copies organically?

 

And don't even get me started on trying to sell Star Fox Guard for more than $3 let alone $60 at some locations still
