I've been watching the price of this slowly fall the last few weeks, but now's the time to buy I think.

:ps4: Mega Man 11 - $8

EDIT:
And :wiiu: Pokken Tournament just reduced to $20 at my local store as well

No luck on the megaman 11 but my Walmart had pokken tournament for $10

Guys, I know we all want to find a good local deal, but dom't ignore the website. It's $19.10 + tax and free ship to store. Or price match the website/app in-store.

Walmart stores no longer price match the website or app.

 

You can do a site to store to get the advertised price, but they will not honor anything else.

When did they make that change? They still do at all the stores I go to. They just need to look it up on their own.

I got it 3 weeks ago but haven't opened it yet. For some reason this walmart had about 80(yes eighty) and I watched the inventory slowly come down to about 50 before I went for one. It even showed on the end cap as clearance when I was there. About a week later the price went up to 299.

Nicely done. I can't find one anywhere for $199. Will have to keep looking.

There doesn’t appear to be an official policy for the physical locations, but their website’s policy is right here: https://help.walmart...matching-policy
There also seems to be more info on their corporate website here: https://corporate.wa...d2-fff8e8700000

So...I was right?

Literally the first line:

Price Match Policy

We will match Walmart.com and Jet.com base price, for identical items purchased in a Walmart store.

That line is misleading since stores can have their own individual policy and most stores don't price match anyone even Walmart.com.

They stopped the price match policy about 2 years ago and the stores do have their own individual policy i.e. it's up to the whim of whomever isn't on their period when you ask. They're supposed to honor the website but I've walked into Walmart maybe 2x in the last year because every time I did ask, you'd have thought I was asking someone to donate a kidney (which given their wages, I can see why they'd be upset if they only had one kidney cause the other was sold already).

It doesn’t even feel like a individual store policy at times...it seems more like an individual EMPLOYEE policy at my local Walmart, as I’ve had some electronics reps deny me a PM from Walmart’s website while others have no problem doing so. As with anything else in these clearance threads (and ESPECIALLY with Walmart), it’s a total YMMV situation.

At all my local stores to refuse to price match even the website, and it's been that way for a good two years.  The only time they did it is when I put up a pretty big fight because I said I can just order it RIGHT NOW from my phone and come back to pick it up in a few.  I was like "you're REALLY going to make me do that?  If so guess I can but then an employee will have to walk out and pick it up and do all the paperwork for it...or I can just buy it now".

 

Most of the time now though I just go ahead and order online for pickup ahead of time to avoid any issues.  Even when they did price match, towards the end of it they started to get  really snotty about it and often the picture on their site wasn't the right picture despite it being the same product so I'd have to put up a fight.

 

My one local store too was pretty pissed about being told not to price match.  Had several employees so it's just caused more hassle than it's worth.  Had one guy though tell me they were told the reason for it was "too many old ladies and coupon moms coming in trying to abuse the policy and we had to spend too much time arguing with them over non-identical products or products that aren't in stock so we stopped doing it...they ruined it for everybody".

No one...including myself, will touch that Animal Crossing amiibo and game set, not even for $3. They still have three at my store.

Sony Playstation Classic Console came up to $39 in one Walmart (I know they've been that low online before and at Target), but I guess this one store refused to bring the price back up. And Brickseek is also telling me that at least one store in the whole country is selling them at $5 a pop.

It’s been a universal price drop to $40 everywhere for about a month now.

Yeah, $60 around me, with one store at $45. Walmart.com still has it listed at $100, while 3rd party sellers have it cheaper. I think $40 may have been a universal sale vs. drop. Target still has it for $40 along with Best Buy and Amazon. Probably other retailers as well.

The whole "refusal to price match Walmart.com" thing is especially bad because Walmart.com's in-store pickup function is absolute ass, and store inventory counts are frequently wrong.

So whenever Walmart actually has a deal worth buying, it's a damn-near guarantee that the item page will either say "Pickup not available" or "Out of Stock at (store that literally has the item right in front of you)".

At that point, you either have to wait for a Site-to-Store order (for something that's already in-stock at the Shaq-Fuing store!!) or negotiate with a Walmart associate who may or may not act like you're mugging them.

...and that's why I stopped paying attention to the Walmart.com deals. 😂

I stopped by a Walmart in Brea and two in La Habra today with more mixed results. Picked up two copies of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City ($1), Batman: Arkham Origins ($3) and The Bureau: Xcom Declassified ($1), all for PS3, at the Brea WM. Unfortunately, there was no sign of the multiple copies of Pokemon X nor Collector’s edition of :wiiu: Twilight Princess w/ Wolf Link amiibo that were supposedly in-stock there. The two La Habra WMs netted me :wiiu: Mario Tennis ($9), :wiiu: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge ($3), :ps3: LEGO Lord of the Rings ($9) and :ps3: Borderlands 2 ($3), whilst :wii: Super Smash Bros. Brawl, :3ds: Pokemon X and :wiiu: Super Mario Maker all eluded me despite showing in-stock. It also reminded me of the volatility of WM employees...the La Habra electronic reps were extremely kind and very helpful, whereas the Brea electronics rep was rude, generally dismissive and looked to be about 15 minutes away from going postal on the whole damn store.

That clearly says in-store matches only their own website, no competitors.

Got some really good scores; Thanks to you, Chavez. I was able to grab some CHEAP ASS 3DS games.

 

Not sure that this info has already been said or if anyone finds it helpful BUT:

When I spoke to my electronic person, They explained to me how sometimes the floater games can end up 'Locked inside the security room' and someone with the right keys would need to get inside and see if they could find it. He was able to and found Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire for $1 each. They were both showing 'LIMITED STOCK' on BS for me and cleared out RED 0 by the time I got home.
 

On a side note, I got Mario Kart 8 Wii U at the same store for $10. This was on a different visit after I got the pokemon. So, maybe they cleaned up said security room. They had stuck the only MK8 out in the middle of the aisle in the end cap glass so I kinda had to buy it as soon as I saw it for $10.
