Lego Marvel super heroes 2 - $5

 

Xbox:

Sims 4 with Star Wars pack - $5

Injustice 2 Legendary - $5

For the kiddo, also got:

minecraft backpack - $4

Left multiples of everything still on the shelves, except lego marvel super heroes and the beyblades.  I got the last ones.  

 

Scoring clearance deals is so much fun.  Good luck to all CAGS still hunting.

No it wasn’t. Brickseek said there was plenty of stock. It was absolutely wrong.

I'll never understand why some retail employees or managers make up their own rules on the fly that are not company policy.

Because they would rather accidentally make up a rule than forget a rule and get fired from their already depressing job

Best I could find was Bloodstained on Switch for $15. My Wal-Mart had Xenoblade, but wouldn't lower the price... it was still $50. Why are the Wal-Marts so stingy in this area? Why!?

So you saw brickseek was wrong at the first store, then again about the second store, and you decided to go to three more after that?

lol.

 

Canadian gamers are like:

Canadian 1: Wow I got Diablo for $40!

Canadian 2: That's so cheap it's usually $65! You're so lucky!

 

American gamers are like:

American 1: Hey I got 7 copies of Diablo for 3 bucks and a blowjob, 3 to resell, 2 to give to my niece and nephew for their birthdays, one for my cat and one to play.

American 2: Bruh. That sucks. I bought for 10 whole dollars a few days ago. I'm gonna return rebuy it.

 

 

European Gamers: You guys are getting deals?

Grabbed some ni no kuni copies switch $5. One for each of the kids. Funny thing is, brickseek said there were none in stock. The store had 2 left. I never would have checked this store if it weren't for this thread. Thanks so much guys!!!

Every 360/PS3 game ya'll have linked so far today is 3 cents in my area. Walmart must be finally getting rid of them for good I guess. Might try to go buy them all tomorrow at my store. Normally it's 50/50 if you can get an employee to sell you a 3 cent game at my store, but those games are the ones just sitting on the shelf so might be able to do it through self checkout since they tend to just take them out of the case and give them back for me to scan myself.

Link dump for the most recent video game clearance finds: mostly piggybacking off of ThatOneGuyWho's excellent post here. The first price is the MSRP and the second is the lowest seen price that it's been reduced to, either personally or by other CAGs. As always, YMMV and all credit goes to the original posters:

Spoiler

I didn't take the time to look at all of the multi-platform games to see if they were all the same or similar clearance price, but it would stand to reason that if a PS4 copy of the game is on clearance, perhaps the XB1 version would be also? Of course, this is the insanity that is Wally World and the extreme YMMV-ness of the deals, but I would suggest to simply ask a WM employee to scan it (or do so yourself w/ your cell phone & WM app or use an in-store scanner if possible) and try your luck. Happy hunting, CAGs!

Walmart in Woodbridge, NJ refused to sell me a 3c rocket arena for ps4. No big deal since I have it on ps+ but the supervisor said we cannot sell it to you. She offered to sell it for $10 which I declined. She said we have to send it to claims since we are not allowed to sell this for 3 c. Escalated it to a manager and still no dice.
I have brought plenty of 3 c games before but never from that store. Overall bad experience and piss poor customer service. Mental note to avoid this particular store.
Self-checkout was not an option this time.

Edit: Btw why are some of you hesitant to say where you are getting your loot from? Share the locations of your successful plunder and leave some for your fellow CAGs too.

Don't consider this piss poor customer service. They are supposed to take the $.03 games and send them back to claims. They usually get like $40 credit per game.

 

If they were rude, then yeah...piss poor. But they have the right to refuse a sale.

Found one I don't think has been reported as of yet,

 

Doom Slayers Club Collection PS4 - $5.00

 

My store didn't have any copies but it's the price coming up at it & a few other stores in the region.

Woodbridge is just a god awful Walmart to begin with, me and my buddy never find anything good there to the point we just avoid the store altogether when hunting. BTW north Brunswick does not have Xenoblade even though brickseek says otherwise and same for freehold with Tokyo mirage, both are busts

You are right; piss poor was a bit harsh. It wasn’t the refusal of sale that was a problem. It was a combination of things. Yes it was busy on a Saturday afternoon. So a long wait just to get the games from the glass prison. Then another long wait on line. I ask to put the game in a plastic security case so I can checkout front bc electronics section is too busy with customers and only one cashier at the electronics register- but denied. Poor infrastructure begets poor customer service, which is probably just the norm at this particular store. It is not the worker’s fault- they were trying to be helpful and probably doing the best they could. It’s just... Walmart- which is probably why I don’t shop there much anyway.

Well I found a real life ‘el hoardo’ yesterday. Stopped at a store that has generally been a good store to find rarities since it’s out of the way in between small towns. Was traveling with my partner and stopped by to pick up Mario Kart 7 3DS for us, and while an employee was helping us get the game out of the locked case, another customer asked for help getting another game. The employee asks which one, grabs the game, and the guy goes “I’d like all of them”. It was 5-6 copies of FIFA 18 for xbox for $.03. He knew the price beforehand since the shelf wasn’t definitely not tagged that price.

Maybe he needed the cases. He definitely wasn't buying them to flip them.  I actually bought a copy of FIFA 18 last month when it hit $3 to get the achievements.

 

I don't get angry about the people who buy old sports games.  It's the ones who buy up all the games that other people might actually play that make me angry.
