Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)


#9511 DSBrad

I would be interested to see if there is any Walmart that even has one left.
Is there a way to search all of the Walmarts in the USA? Or do you have to just keep trying different zip codes?


I have a couple 50+ miles away that have limited stock and one that claims 6+

I finally got super lucky at Walmart. Saw a store near me had the Rampage arcade machines for 154. Decided to buy one after it showed stock this morning. By the time I got to the store, it dropped to 74! 😁

So what's the deal with those arcade machines? Can they be hacked or anything?

Awesome. I'm still looking for one, but they picked up in price around me ever since the ads went out. Guess Walmart is able to move them at $299, with more exposure.

Found Fire Emblam Fates - Birthright for $15 at Chelmsford, MA Walmart. Bought 1, had 2 more for sale. In the glass case, not in clearance section.

A walmart around me still have the display models msi laptops on the shelf. The clearance price on them are 569.  I have talked to the lady working in the electronic department and she said she cant sell those....anyway the manager can  sell it to me or should i just forget about trying to get them to sell me one.

I wouldn't touch a display model of anything. Literally wouldn't touch it. That's gross.

An item I’ve been watching had an additional price drop from when I checked brickseeker last night to this morning. I’m going to have to go a little out of my way to check it out.

When the price on brickseeker changes like that is it common for the item to be the new price right away or does it usually take some time at the store level?

As horribly inaccurate as BrickSeek is when it comes to properly indicating stock quantities (and it’s not BS’s fault, it’s Walmart’s and their inability to keep proper inventory), I’ve found the prices listed to be correct almost 100% of the time.

I mean, doors get touched by filthy hands a lot more often than a display model. Just Saiyan

Some stores dropped their Crystal PS4 controllers to $11.  Unfortunately every store in my area shows low stock and they are missing.  

 

https://brickseek.co.../?sku=228382645

Many thanks for posting this.  One of my local stores had one in stock for a while at $46.96.  I've checked Brickseek almost every day and finally today it dropped all the way down to $11 so I picked it up.  Wasn't even marked in the case.

 

Also went to another Walmart and picked up My Arcade Burgertime mini arcade for $5.00 and the My Arcade Dig Dug for $5.00.  Also, finally found a copy of Tiny Troopers Joint Ops XL (Switch) for $19.93.  It appears a few of my local stores have restocked Tiny Troopers, some at 6+ in stock.  For about a month the game was completely missing from my whole area.

 

Here's the link in case you are still looking for one:

I also saw World of Simulators (PS4, likely Wal Mart exclusive) at every local Walmart except the one closest to where I live.  Oddly enough all of them (at multiple stores) were box cutter slashed at the top .  I also picked up a copy of that in case it does become hard to find and I regret not getting it.

 

All in all a good day Walmart game hunting (luckily I was off work today).

Went to the Walmart I mentioned last night. I couldn't find the Fire Emblem game (big surprise). I also couldn't find the crystal dualshock 4 that they supposedly had. They had an end cap with dualshock controllers but couldn't see it since they were all mixed up in the display case and didn't really care to really look. The trip wasn't a total waste however because I found they had a bunch of Nintendo Switch controllers on clearance for $15-$20, switch cases, nintendo 3DS chargers, one random Xbox one headset and two Linksys routers on clearance. I bought the last 3DS game case that is $10 at Target, they had it on clearance for $2.50. https://brickseek.co.../?sku=336791036

So do toilets. Doesn't mean I want a used one.

"Limited Stock" at every WM near me....translation: "None here...either they're all stolen or our inventory is wrong again...sorry."

I have the Donkey Kong one, also got it for $5 a ways back. If you don't mind that it doesn't have rumble they're a steal for that price, feels pretty light as a result. I mainly use it for turn based games- Yu-Gi-Oh, Fire Emblem, and Phantasy Star.

While that's likely to be the case, it's still worth a shot. As the old saying goes, the only that beats a can't is a try.

Dojo mentioned the rumble already but also worth mentioning the basic models (like the Donkey Kong one or the Splatoon one which I have) lack basically every feature. No rumble, no gyro, not even wireless. Having to be wired all the time doesn't bother me much but just something to keep in mind.

 

What really killed the controller for me is that the analog sticks are freaking massive. I'd say they're about 50% larger than xbox and PS4 analog sticks. My thumbs kept sliding off them, especially because they lack good grip. The surface is mostly flat with a very thin ring on the outer edge but not enough to stop my thumb from randomly sliding off when a game gets intense. Thankfully though since the controller lacks basically all features it's really easy to take apart and replace the sticks with others.

 

Lastly the d-pad felt fairly stiff and not as responsive as I'd liked. It was fine for games where you just used the d-pad for menus and stuff like that or anything turn based like Dojo said but I tried to play Mario Maker with it and I legit played worse than when I was just using the analog stick on the joy-cons

Hell, I've been getting that with stores that show 5-10 of an item lately.

My walmart says it has 4 of one of the laptops but at the moment they looked for those they were nowhere to be found, and one lady told me they could sell the display model of other that just showed that one, but the other person in there told me that they couldn't.
