So for anybody that has been to a store that is closing, did you see any copies of Monster Hunter?

I felt very odd the first time, and they had to ask me for the ID again and again if they couldn't do all my returns in on transaction. The only store still needs to ask for ID for return.

At first I worried about my account would be flagged but so far I haven't got any problem especially I had to return quite a number of stuffs from the baby registry.

BTW, I have never seen those deep discounted video games clearance in the TRU I went too, all I've seen their clearance price might be just a few dollars off.


Did you ask them to scan them? Clearance ($.98) is company wide.

On the ID topic, i love it especially at my store. We have a new type of merchandise credit system we use. If you have an ID AND receipt when you return, it works like a regular gift card. If you have an ID, but NO receipt, the card will only work if your ID number is entered when it's used.

My store has a large amount of return fraud and since we started this it has drastically dropped. People would do no receipt returns on stolen items and then sell the merch credits or convert them at a coinstar, the new cards get rejected at coinstars and the ID requirement has stopped people from buying them second hand.

I would assume they have a value limit on no receipt returns like Walmart and Target does?

Two things:
Is this for Sunset Overdrive? (I briefly saw mention of this earlier in the topic, but this message did not reflect it.)

If so, My TRU has a scanner near the Game section and it rings up $17.99 from the $20.00 original price tag minus the 10% off store-wide sale. Unless this is something a manager must override, or the self-service price scanner is not to be trusted.

I went to the one in Dover, DE and the outside said "30% off on everything. Nothing held back" *except games... Games are 10% off.

 Breaking my own rule...oh well topic isn't busy enough to matter about closing stuff cluttering it up...

 

Dover, DE!  I'm in Salisbury so I make the trek up there now and then.  Didn't even realize that store was closing, Salisbury is staying open.  I've gotten some good deals up in Dover TRU over the years...

I used to live a lot closer to Dover then I do now, but I can still hit up the store when I head down to the shore.  Will be a little sad not seeing it anymore on my trips.

If I were you two I wouldn't even bother going back for at least a week.. Because 10% off isn't good enough when their games are mostly overpriced.

Very rarely a store has an item that doesn't drop like most others for some reason.  This may be the case for you and SO.  Never seen the scanner be wrong before.

Stopped by a TRU last night that’s right next to a Walmart and grabbed :360: Titanfall for $0.98 and a Disney Infinity Power Disc album for $1.00. No 3¢ games at the WM except for :3ds: Legend of Korra, unfortunately, and it was behind the display glass so I wasn’t even about to try. I also think it’s hilarious that this WM’s idea of “clearance” video games is to knock $2-$5 off the MSRP...saw oodles of :ps4: Deus Ex for $10 and :xb1: Titanfall 2 deluxe for $34.98.

Along with the good stuff being shipped to non-dying stores mentioned above, a lot of older clearances stuff is being shipped to closing stores to clear up some inventory. We were shipping out old sports games mostly, and a few older kids tablets. Nothing good was left at our store, but some of the good stuff from a few weeks ago might make it those stores at least.

 

Resellers are trying to take advantage so keep that in mind. I had a guy with 20 receipts from other stores looking for some $90 iPod Nanos, I think 6th Gen.

So apparently Toysrus doesn't price match Frys anymore. I tried buying Dragon Quest Heroes The Burning Tree of of Woes is Me Or Whatever The Fuck since Frys has it for $4.99 but the lady wouldn't let me, saying it's not in the list of competitors that they price match.


wat?

Isn't there a choice for "Other?"

You weren't seriously expecting to find any Witchers, 3 months after they were marked down?

Given a few reports I thought I would give it a shot and also look to see if anything else was laying around but per my post, I found nothing decent at the local stores I hit.

Koala kids shoes plus any other item and it takes 50% off the other item.

Probably dead now though. Many thanks to Wario if these orders ship/ready for pickup.

Yes, I guess I was lucky and actually got two copies of Witcher 3 Complete for $4.98 each. Didnt know it was an old deal, just got them about a week ago.

The updated policy means they should be able to as long as it's in stock online at that price, and not clearance. I would normally recommend that you just ask a manager, as your cashier likely just didn't know of the policy change, but it is both out of stock and clearance.

If they don't scrutinize the page they might match it, but my store likely wouldn't, as this low of a discount would need manager numbers so they should actually be looking at the page.

I think drops just happened. I went to TRU to pick up a PlayStation tv that has been lingering, and I noticed there was a lot of staff running around. In electronics, there were 3 stock people looking for stuff from the lockup with lists. Asked to get the PSTV from a few cases over, and the girl said that this was also on the list. Took it over to the cashier, and it rung up a sweet $5.98, instead of $17.98.

Picked up a Switch Pro Controller for $50.xx after using a $5 off coupon. Sign said 30% off Switch Accessories but the Pro Controller was behind the glass with the sign that said no discount on Video Game Systems. I asked and the guy said it should count. When they rang it up at the register it was normal price $75 (which I think is $5 more than other retailers) but I told them it was an accessory so they put in the discount. YMMV i guess but it was worth a shot for me. My store (Wayne,NJ) didn't have any joy cons or any other controllers (PS4/XBOX) but they did have Switch charging grips that the 30% would have applied to as well.

Been searching all the TRUs around me to find Wii remotes and :ps4: Witcher III Complete for fellow CAGs...no such luck yet, but I did pick up :360: The Bureau: XCOM Declassified for $0.48.

Decided to check the local TRU for any further clearance markdowns and they were picked clean except for two copies of Bayonetta 2 (WiiU, that were not marked with a price).  They are still $9.98 each and I picked one up with a $5 Rewards certificate knocking it down to $4.98.

I haven't stepped into a TRU since about 2 years. I made a return this week with my purchase and was asked for an id. Is this something mandatory for returns now at all TRU?

Btw it was a purchase under $20 and I had my original receipt.

They've been doing that at the TRUs in my area for years now, regardless if price.
