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

Got in on the $15 Ni No Kuni 1 PS4 remaster at Walmart.  But the dumb broad automatically charged me $2 for disc protection without asking, insisted twice that it must have been my fault because I pressed a button on the keypad, so then I had to go wait at customer service in order to get a refund. (I asked her if it came up $15, she said yes, you slide your card, and then the total doesn't appear on the keypad until after your card is processing.)

 

According to CS apparently they have a new computer system that is auto-charging customers the disc protection unless the employee knows "when to hit the 'clear' button at the right time".  Just another example of why Walmart employees will always be unhelpful morons.

 

It's always something.

If anybody can find it Resident Evil Origins Collection for PS4 is around 5 bucks - https://brickseek.co...r/?sku=48981780

And it's 18 something on the dot com.

Just wanted to add many of these $15+ games people are buying can be had for MUCH cheaper at Gamestop, most even half off (Trover, DMC5).

I try to go for new when I can, but if it's a $10+ difference, hell no.


Trover is not cheaper

Also some people like their new games to not be used.

Or you can get it for sure new vs maybe beat up in a generic case, definitely worth the huge difference of $7 to me! The only way to “do it wrong” is to insist your way is the only way.

Not a clearance deal but I have been seeing consoles again at my stores over the last couple of weeks.

 

2DS XL is common in my area, almost every store has at least one or two

 

Nintendo Switch at one store, had a few in the case (neon joycons iirc)

 

PS4 & PS4 Pro one each were in the same store, have not seen those in a while

It is. I got it for $7.50 during the weekly 50% off sale.

Again, understandable, but when you can get it for half off used vs double the price buying new? You do that. Otherwise, you're doing it wrong.


Okay, but as of now Trover is not cheaper

Neither is DMC5 lol, it's $25 on PS4 and $20 on Xbox atm. But also all the other arguments aside getting a good deal at gamestop generally means buying multiple games at once since their deals are mostly buy x get y type stuff. Not really comparable to walmart clearance.

Agreed! I assumed that’s what he meant at first, got it in a 4 for 30 deal which without equal 7.50 each, which wouldn’t count as a sale on that game.

Plus games like Trover you have to get shipped because no stores in a 100 mile radius have it in stock.

Another successful hunt. Ended up with....

 

Medievil ($9), Everybody's Golf VR ($9) and Skyrim VR ($11) all for PS4.

 

Got most of the things off the current clearance list I want. One store about 30 minutes away claims to have both FFX and FFXII for Switch but I'm too lazy to drive 45 minutes to see. Now to just watch Tokyo Mirage Sessions like a hawk for that eventual drop

No stores near me had FFX per brickseek but I needed to pick up some light bulbs at my closest walmart so I thought i would check and see what was actually on the shelf.  I lucked out by finding one lonely FFx  in the glass case. As an added bonus I was able to quickly find an associate to open the case for me.  They had about 7 copies of fantasia for xbox for $1.  I left that alone

:xb1: Metro Exodus Day 1 Edition $13 (as low as $9 at some locations)

Struck out on this today. Going to try another location in a few days. The Day 1 Edition for Xbox One includes a code for Metro 2033 Redux as well so you are getting 2 games for the same price.

It's just Metro 2033 Redux.  Does not include Last Light.  Still a good deal.

Thanks for the heads up. I edited my post to reflect the correct information.

How is the Carmen san Diego game? Never had that as a kid. 

 

Also, found out that the closest store to me had a big circle thing of games that everything in it was $5. Found Monster Hunter: icebourne for 5 but missed everoasis that was sitting in there since the start of COVID.

My kids have been messing around with Carmen San Diego. I hope they updated the geography. I don't think all the countries from when it came out still exist.  I liked it growing up but I also liked any computer game. We will see how it holds up

Damn, seeing people find titles like Doom Switch and the OG Fortnite on XBONE gives me hope.

I had some luck yesterday evening as well. Found Xenoblade 2: Torna etc. (Switch) for $11. It showed up as $19 on Brickseek, which I was already more than happy with. The additional reduction was a great surprise.

Fortnite is free just incase you missed that. It's also not good at all and is specifically made for kids.

The physical copies are sought after and worth a bit of money. Is the PVE more free?
