no Family Dollar here in the Bay Area, but I will be in Sacramento this weekend, so I will be scouting a few on my route, seems to be only in the "ghetto" areas, makes sense.

Saw a PS4 copy of The Division for $13 today as I hunted for GS trade fodder.

Seemed pretty rare since I've only seen one in my 3 visits to a Family Dollar store.

Would be nice to have Fallout for $13.

My local store had a small selection, but I did manage to snag FIFA 16. They also had Battleborn, FF13 Lightning Returns, Mad Max, Madden 16, and a few other low value games. Thank you for the heads up! I might try another store that's about 10 miles away.

Kansas City.
Saw Street Fighter V $13, Division $13, mighty no9 $8 On PS4. Gta V $8 on 360. They had x1 games but I didn't look at them.

Was looking for a Megaman collection. I'll have to try another store but, didn't feel like it today.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that most people won't get this reference. I did, and enjoyed it immensely.

Did anybody find any NES games lol that had to be a joke lol I'm guessing no one knows what those are either XD

Will GameStop flag, ban, etc. my account if I, for example, trade in half a dozen copies of the same game over the course of a few days?

"per system" meaning console systems or stores? Like could you go to multiple stores?

Console. Whether you split it up over multiple stores or do the same store (in different days) doesn't matter.

Finally, success. The things I saw. The things I smelled. Truly a frightening experience for a game I already have on PC. Nonetheless, I was victorious.

Amen.  I'm sure I've been in a Family Dollar before, but this experience was eye-opening.

These seem to be from the same company that supplies Walmart as it's the same sticker over the barcode.

Got that out of Redbox near the beginning of the year for $6, although without the case, obviously.

Just hit my fifth Family Dollar. Was a good stop. Grabbed 3 copies of FIFA 16 for the X360, a few copies for the PS3, and a few others that have already been reported.


Of note however, this store had COD: BLOPS 3 for the PS4 at $13. Unless I missed it, I don't believe that game has been reported yet.

Glad I found this if nothing else to scope out the inventory at local stores even though I prefer Dollar General. I went to look through games at one location and this kid notices I'm looking through games and proceeds to grab a stack of games starting to name them out before grabbing Madden 15 or whatever year had OBJ on the cover.

I grabbed Halo 5 for $13 and Mighty No 9 for $8 and both were in great shape even if they're used. Mighty still had all the paperwork in the case while Halo only had the white label around the inside of the disc. I went to three locations and will try to go to another one tomorrow following a work assignment.

While not disturbing the clientele was interesting.  Two white guys in their late 50's or early 60's maybe.  Both were odd.  One was wearing a hockey helmet.  Perhaps he had some skull injury but I think he was just "unique".  I have gone to the 3 Family Dollars (one closed recently) around me a few times for these sales (and the 10% Live credit) and have wasted my time.  I think once I got Live credit after a second attempt.  One store was out of the correct UPC cards or whatever.  The other only had the ones that print on the receipt which didn't get the 10% discount.  The games selection at the one I went to last week had nothing I wanted.

 

Just not worth the trip out of my way anymore.  If I am driving by one sure.  But to waste 20-30 mins driving there and back?  Waste of time.

There were two cop cars parked in the fire lane in the shopping center in front of Family Dollar when I went. Coincidence? I think not.

Definitely not a coincidence. I bet they were there after reading this thread to get deals.
