I'd trade a digital code for Super Mario Odyssey in exchange for Xenoblade and Octopath (both). Message if interested.

On digital game for two physical high quality games? Lol bruh

Those 2 games cost $10 each. Mario Odyssey isn't on clearance and never cheaper than $40.

Don't be a jerk.

I saw the trade and immediately checked to see if any stores had octopath still. No dice, but xenoblades did drop to $10 at my local store finally sometime in the past few hours.

Most people that are selling or trading that code got it with the controller bundle for $70. So they got it for closer to $10-20 at most. Come on man. I’m not new here.

Who is to say I didn't pay $50 for Odyssey and $20 for the controller, if you so choose to divide it up that way? C'mon man, I'm not new here either. I'm trading a clearance game for two cheaper (or equal value) clearance games, and you out here whinging about it. Grow up mate, save this for people trying to actually pull the wool over people's eyes. What a pointless attempt at a call-out. I am trying to trade a Mario game, not Calvin Tucker's Redneck Jamboree or some other such shovelware nonsense.

Yeah man, a regular math genius right there. I did my part if people bite, that’s on them. That’s why I said shoot your shoot.

You guys rock - got a darksiders warmastered switch for $0.03 - showing OOS on brickseek, but was just sitting right there in the value switch games.

Anyone having an issue with brickseek stating a lower price than what’s in the store? Even after the item was scanned? For example, I was hoping to get sonic mania for switch for $0.03. Didn’t have a tag but it rang up as $14.96 when the employee scanned it with her phone. :-/

Brickseek shows the lowest that the item can go for. The thing is, your store probably didn't get around to doing markdowns in the store

I was just in a store checking for some markdowns by scanning on the app

I had multiple games that I was looking at and could see in stock, yet when I scanned them at that location the app said OOS

Anyone know what this issue might be? Possible markdown coming, or just a glitch in the system

Founds Sims 4 and Skyrim SE for $5 each. Going to stop by another tomorrow to see what's there.

 

Walmart barcode scanner on the app is pretty great. Can read it right through the glass.

I’ve not found any of the games on clearance. It seems like my store hasn’t clearanced many of them out yet. Even some of the 3DS games are still full price and not lowered.

I guess I’ll have to try to check brickseek every day or 2 in the hopes I can grab them once they do decide to drop the price.

Is there a specific day Wal Mart typically does price drops for clearance items?

If anyone has any extras they are looking to sell at a small profit send me a PM and let me know what you have.

Usually Monday or Tuesday, but there is so much clearance going on in so many different departments that prices could go down any weekday.  Weekend markdowns are much rarer.  Would just check brickseek every morning so you can catch the changed price first.

I’ve had this happen a lot - but brickseek shows the accurate price. My store has 1 Kirby and 1 DK in stock in the case but the app shows not in stock and won’t scan (says try a different barcode or something like that). However it shows full price on brickseek which is what they ring up. (Brickseek also shows OOS).

Best I can broscience it over the past week - out of stock on brickseek seems to mean 0-1 in the store.

I wonder if the clearance will ever happen if even the store app doesn’t know it has inventory in the store.

So does the Walmart app only show the in-store price if you scan the tag on the shelf? I scan the barcode of a DVD at home just to check and it brought me to the walmart.com price and said store price may be different

Yes, the app sees when you’re in the actual store, and adjusts the barcode scanner to that specific store.

Even then it only switches like half the time for me.

I bought a copy of Mario Party 3DS sealed on eBay. The resellers have flooded the market so hard with these clearance games they’re actually pushing them into a price point I would have bought it anyway in store ($19). For some of y’all striking out on titles you want it’s worth a look!

Went to two of the three Walmarts in Santa Clarita, CA and picked up the following:
38839880598fb3173e849adeb4278be9.jpg
All of the PS4 games were $5 (Rocket Arena was 3¢) and Xenoblade was $10; all of the games were either I tagged or marked at the normal price. Unfortunately, no luck with finding any of rarer $10 Switch games even though both stores were supposed to have multiple copies of them (or they rang up normal price). The electronics rep at one of them mentioned another guy came in the day before and bought a bunch of games, “including some that rang up for 3¢,” so I probably got beat out by another CAG or reseller. There’s one more local WM I need to check, but I don’t expect to find much there if Brickseek is to be believed, and the next closest stores that are supposed to have stock of stuff I’m looking for are a good 30+ miles away. Maybe I’ll take a Saturday and make it worth it sometime soon, but I can’t justify a trip like that right now.

Is there a forum or site with the general clearance deals outside of CAG? I frequent this website fairly often, but by the time I see those gaming deals + general item price drops posted, my local Walmarts stock drops instantly and I end up going to Walmart only to find that others have already grabbed up the stock.

I used to live in Santa Clarita. I don't ever remember the Walmarts there being good locations for clearance loot. How times have changed.

Struck out on locating a copy of :ps4: Overwatch: LE or GOTY for $5 but found a Walmart with plenty of the WD Black 2 TB HDs for $17 each.  Grabbed a couple.  Wish the PS5 would support multiple external drives like Xbox does otherwise I would have picked up a couple more...

What a person paid for a game doesn't dictate the value.  eBay/secondary market value is what dictates the value.  If someone is willing to trade you 2 games for Odyssey, good for you.  But I'm not surprised elitewillie called you out on it.

 

That's why folks say keep the trading asks out of this thread...or keep it to posts about trading clearance titles for clearance titles.

Trading clearance titles for clearance titles is exactly what I'm attempting to do: Super Mario Odyssey was part of a clearance bundle before, and now Xenoblade and Octopath are on clearance too. Just a fact. If that sounds like a fair trade to you, the offer's on the table. If not, you can safely ignore it. All I know is, I don't think my Odyssey code for one single $10 game is a very good deal for me.

 

Not only that, but if you check post #12274 up there, I already had xanchui checking BrickSeek to see if he could make the trade. Seems like at least one person would've done it if they could've. The lesson learned today: next time I feel like making a trade and someone replies with a faux "callout" attempt, I'll just ignore them.
