Got lucky and found Tokyo Mirage Sessions for $5 at the Clayton, NC store. It was still labeled $40. Didn't see Xenoblade there.

How do you guys normally check for these deals? Is there an app to scan barcodes that people use instead of asking the sales associate?

I have an extra Xenoblade, Lion King/Aladdin, Spyro collection and Ni No Kuni. I'm looking for Tokyo Mirage.

Going back to Walmart this morning when they open.

 

I'm sure there won't be anything but empty shelves.  But I'm hoping they will sell me the shelves for 3 cents each.  :roll:

There were a few games left when I got there at 7 a.m.  I usually go out hunting for action figures and Hot Wheels at that time anyway.

 

Rather than bother the employees, I just put every game that I wanted to check into a cart and wheeled them over to the wall scanner.

 

Here's what I found:

 

Batman The Telltale Series: Season Pass Disc (XB1) - 3 cents

Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition (PS3) - 3 cents

Starlink game box with the toys (PS4) - $5

World of Simulators (PS4) - $5

 

I also grabbed an extra ARK: Survival Evolved and The Sims 4 for PS4 since they were still there in the case with the $5 shelf tag just as they were the other night.

 

As you might expect, the popular Switch and 3DS games were all gone.  It also appears that no one cares about PS4 games anymore.

My Walmart has everything labeled full price on the shelf and in app. I asked an employee if they could pull a few to scan at the register to double check the price, and they said they weren’t going to do that unless I was actually planning on buying them. Apparently “I’ll be buying them if they are clearanced” wasn’t a good enough answer for them. Guess I’ll just keep randomly checking!

Just following the thread and wow....I should’ve held off buying Tokyo Mirage last summer for $50 on a whim while I was at a Walmart. Grats to the people who were able to snag a copy for $10.

BTW you guys realize you can pull the Walmart app on your phone and scan the price tag through the glass and it'll tell you the price in store, right?

if the walmart app and brickseek show the instore price as full price then it shouldn't scan any differently.

it's walmart though so half the games probably don't have tags lol

Exactly. That’s the problem I encounter most of the time. Or the app will say check in store price (and also not have tags).

The only one I saw without a tag this week was Octopath down in the bottom of the case. Another cheat is bring a partner with you or print off all the barcodes of the items you want, switch the store to the one you're at and scan the item on the app. It beats the "check in store for price" BS.

It takes about 5 seconds to scan a game at the wall scanner.  I've never used the app, but I suppose that's another method.

Went to a number of stores today.  Some said sold out and some said stock.  Had the best luck at the stores that said sold out.  Found Tokyo :switch: ($5), Xenoblade :switch: ($10) and Quantic Dream :ps4: ($5).

Also found Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 :360: ($.03) and

Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe :360: ($.03).

 

A lot of the other notable Nintendo ones have yet to drop at my stores, but did see a number of copies so should have a chance.

Same, strange thing was that on the 3ds the games I got were already marked to $5 (sticker said clearanced with today's date) they weren't in the brickseek system at all as far as being there.

Picked up the logitech g305 mouse and g240 mouse pad combo for $18. The deal was posted earlier but I had overlooked it at my store. It is in a tub type box and looks/labeled like it's mouse pad only in case anyone was having trouble finding it.

I had few games come up as pants ( a kirby 3ds game)  and douches (tintin 3ds).

Yeah for real. Just have them ring it up and say you changed your mind. What are they gonna do? Call the walmart police on you?
