Still waiting on Tokyo Mirage Sessions to drop. One whole store in my area dropped it to $30. I feel like the day I don't check is the day it drops and everyone sells out.

 

Brickseek has been super innacurate for me these past weeks or two. Twice now I've had instock items nowhere to be found in store. Seems like a lot of my local Walmarts are cleaning out stock as well, a couple looked like K-Marts/Sear's in their electronics section

Ni No Kuni for switch was still marked at 29.99 but rang up at $10. Thanks for the tip. You guys are great!

Yeah, always have to check since at least around here they rarely bother updating the tag price. I picked up 3 games when I was out of town and all 3 had out of date prices on their tags

 

Was it in ohio?

Nah, KY. But if there is another up in Ohio just sitting there that's amazing. No one is ever going to buy that lol.

So I got a couple of games clearance yesterday for $15 apiece and I went today to possibly buy some more and all the prices are back up to 40 or $50

I got tsum tsum switch and Ni No Kuni for $10 each. The stickers said $10 each but they rang up higher and I had to get a manager to override. He wasn't happy to do it, but the stickers said it so he did it. Do you think they accidentally sent out black friday prices early or something?

Is the captain Tsubasa fandom really that big or is everybody here reselling them?

tbh I dont think stores got many copies to begin with? I may be wrong but it seems like a really niche title. I mean unless people are reselling locally I dont think ebay would be worth the hassle

 

 

on a side note I might be able to score some daemon x machina and tokyo mirage sessions for $20~ tomorrow that is if they dont get cleared out today, if I do and anyones interested I could do cost + shipping and materials

My son and I thought the gameplay looked fun, and I thought this was a good, cheap Christmas gift from me. I bought ours with the intention of playing them, but part of me is hoping the game turns into another Godzilla.

Grabbed Diablo Eternal Collection for X1 for $10 and Ni No Kuni for Switch for $10 today in Woodland, CA ... last Diablo but they had 3 or 4 more Ni No Kuni copies.

so walmart's early black friday ads are out and no video games. the dates are 11/4 to 11/8 and 11/11 to 11/15, though it looks like they will have more deals from 11/25 to 11/27. there are a few $8 4k movies and the usual crappy cheap tvs and chromebooks.

found some 0.03 cent games at a store not to far from me:

 

We Happy Few PS4

Strange Brigade Xbox One

Extinction Xbox One

Geometry Wars Xbox One

Middle Earth Shadow Of War Xbox One

 

Not a 0.03 game but worth a mention

Man of Median PS4 $4.00

adding some more i found on the list at 0.03 

 

NBA 2K18  Switch

Xcom 2 Collection Xbox One

Apex Legends Lifeline Edition PS4

Apex Legends Bloodhound Edition Xbox One

Dreamworks Dragons Dawn Of New Riders  PS4

Recore Xbox One

 

So far my luck has been at stores that hadn't went through there clearance in a while.  Most of the employees didn't care about the 3 cent price checking out.

I wouldn't take that to necessarily mean anything, those dates are too early and seem more like pre-BF promotions. Thanksgiving and Black Friday fall on the week of the 22nd.

So then, is there a set day of the week that items are usually marked down on?

No, walmart clearances are literally store to store discretion. Nothing is universal with them.

It's more like tracking trends as there are some clearances that are more widespread where a certain item is on clearance at most stores, but the price will still vary as well as the timing for going on clearance and price drops.

Except for their penchant for very sloppy inventory management -- which is why there are so many inaccuracies on Brickseek.

Saw someone post that their stores put out their PS5 controllers.  Not only are they on floors but it looks like some stores already clearancing them down to $22. https://brickseek.co...r?sku=615549727

Sounds like someone working in electronics that was trying to get a deal for themselves.

Played Wasteland 3 (PC) on Xbox for PC Game Pass. Took me around 60+ hours to finish.

Great game.

A steal to own that at $15.

Was able to track down Apex Legends Lifeline and Bloodhound for $.03 each. When the guy at Walmart scanned them, his scanner showed recall and almost refused to sell me them. I asked if he could try to sell them to see if it would allow it and it did. Unfortunately, the 4 copies I left on the shelf he scooped up saying they had to go back.

More like they had to go back to his car...next time try the trick I once read on here about taking those games and an R rated movie to self-checkout. Try to scan the R rated movie so it'll set off the "make sure this customer is over 17" check once the employee clears that you can check out as usual and the alert won't go off again for the .03 games. Basically whenever possible use self-checkout for penny games, even if you have to have the employee put it in an anti-theft case for you to head to the front, self-checkout can take it out that case once you are there.

As crazy as it sounds, these were in the locked case. I’ve never been handed a game to take to the front from there, even in an anti theft case. They always ring me out in the back
