I have found Brickseek to be wrong 100% of the time with my local Walmart.

 

On 5 separate occasions I went to the store based on Brickseek prices,  but on every trip the game was actually only on  "clearance" for 50 cents off MSRP.  I suspect the store is actually leaking bad data to Brickseek on purpose.

Brickseek isn't always right.  I have won and lost.  It's about perseverance.

Anyone missing out on that controller deal for 25 bucks. I have a number of walmarts around me that are selling them for 46.XX and you can buy them at one of those and take them back to one where it is clearanced for 25 and get the difference.


Do you mean take it back sealed and get the price difference and then immediately buy it again?

Yep.  I bought 4 at a store near me, then I found 3 more for 46.XX and took them back to the other store to get them for 25.

Why do that with a 25 dollar controller though?  Better to keep the cheap one.

Okay I will try that out. Usually I have to wait for them to restock it but I'll see if I can buy it right away.

Got Far Cry 5 for the Xbox One for $10. It's probably a HUGE YMMV. I think it was an issue with the UPCs of the day one edition and the regular edition. The shelf sticker said $10, the sticker on the case said $25, and it rang up $49.98. They overrode it because the shelf said $10 and you could only see the spine of the case. The Gold version had a $25 sticker, but no shelf sticker so I didn't fight for that one. I would advise checking all the versions that come up in Brickseek for Xbox One

PlayStation 4 controllers are the worst when it comes to how the insides are put together. Pads inside on the chips on my last controller were all scuffed up or looked melted. Just never bothered with warranty since it didn't take but 30 days for my controller to start acting up (R2 likes to press on its own while the left analog drifts slightly at times). I still utilize my PS4 more than my Xbox despite the controller issues.

Another gem after finding Far Cry 5. Sticker had $9.88, but it rang up $0.50. Even if it only works for a month it's worth it 9398fe05f684acf144f1ce707263caea.jpg

Mine are all black and red.  I originally got a black and red one, took them apart and swapped backs.  So one is black with a red back and the other is red with a black back.  Anytime I have an issue, I buy a new one, take out the innerads and return my old ones.

 

Why do that with a 25 dollar controller though?  Do that with a 60 dollar one, keep the 25 dollar controller.

Get a load of El Hoardo's cousin, El Fraudo.

I was able to find most of the candy I wanted at one store (some were even tagged 25¢ in one of the checkout lanes) and got $24 worth of Jack Links beef jerky at another store.

Heads up for anyone else picking up discounted snacks, make sure to check the expiration dates on everything as some of the candy I saw expired in October of 2018.

 

I was also able to get a $25 Crystal Dualshock 4. :D

That's nothing compared to the now defunct Kmart and their food/snacks being expired.

I didn't know that wasn't allowed. I thought the guy was throwing away a perfectly good deal.  Thanks for saying something.

Buy Lucky Charms, also buy the Walmart brand knockoff, swap the cereal bags, and then return the Lucky Charms. Boom. Name brand cereal at store brand prices.

I have a similar issue with my mint glacier white controller that I barely used. when I press the l2 button it mimics up on the left joystick. tried blowing air into since the internet says its the sensor. afraid to disassemble it because things like that never fit back together properly %100. the internet says to try to ship it off to sony and they might be nice enough to replace it. unfortunately the glacier white v2 controller is not listed on their repair web page

ymmv, if you live near a gravel road it makes a great substitute for cereal for the return, though mixing with a lighter styrofoam like substance is recommended for more accurate fill levels.
