Black Friday 2017 - The Epic Master Thread

Depending on whether or not I end up liking Wolfenstein and South Park: The Stick of Truth (scored a PS4 digital download for $5 on eBay a couple weeks ago!) I might add their respective sequels to that list.


Having just finished The fractured but whole, I can tell you stick of truth is vastly superior.

its so weird how syndicate was $8 everywhere last year and nobody wanted it, now its 3 times that and everybody wants it.


Yea I got the gold edition for $8.00 last year which was a steal. I don't know why people want to pay more for that game now lol

Personally I'm enjoying Fractured much more so far, if just simply for the improved combat system and other quality of life upgrades gameplay wise.

 

It felt so easy to break the difficulty on Stick of Truth, especially with a Jewish character.

I was thinking about picking up a quick, last-minute deal at Square-Enix, but their shipping costs more than the actual item itself. Dicks.

Did anyone manage to get batman telltale games for the switch at Walmart?
All the nearby gamestop were sold out, so I went next door to walmart. The worker got it from the case and it wouldn't scan, so he looked something on his phone aND told me that he can't sell it because it'seems not even supposed to be out . Kinda odd, but I did manage to get Mario and rabbids on sale. He was surprised to still see it on sale and couldn't guarantee me the sale price even though it was black Friday lol.

Always been like that. They had a huge sale like last month when their new site went up, and I was looking at buying some books and after shipping I could have still gotten most of them for like $10-$15 cheaper post shipping costs on Amazon.jp

What the hell else does anyone buy at Kohl's though? I guess I shouldn't judge as I've never set foot in one, but it sounds like the typical "Old Navy" type generic clothing store from people I've spoken to. Like you should be expecting to find those corny American flag t-shirts, khaki shorts, and off-brand household items made in China. 

Kohl's is legit. . .for just about anything but games. One of the better deals I got lately was dearfoams for $10 a month ago (although those things get super warm lol). You can find ridiculously good deals on clothing in their clearance sections and I tend to daisy chain kohl's cash to get things for $1-2 after stacking coupon codes. Only downside is some of their best deals can be locked behind their cardholder program, which I refuse to sign up for. Will never sign up for a CC just for a deal, ever.

It was released on 11/14/2017. Oddly, walmart.com says it's available for preorder for $25. https://www.walmart....s-NSW/885638682

Same price currently on Amazon. Not quite $20, but $25 for a Switch game that released a week ago ain't bad.

while its very YMMV, its been reported to be found on clearance at walmart. I actually picked it up for $7

$7-40 at walmart on clearance

 

Thanks.  Not personally helpful since I don't live near a Walmart, but I appreciate the tip nonetheless.  Would be an instant buy if those clearance prices also applied to Walmart's website.

The funny thing is when I mentioned other stores have it available for sale. I get a generic response of it not scanning. Oh well, wasn't going to make a big deal over it. It's actually cheaper on Xbox marketplace. I just saw it had been released recently and wanted another switch on sale that also happened to be batman.
I could tell that guy couldn't care at all and didn't want to be there. That section used to have a friendly staff, now I sometimes get that guy who attempts to refuse a price match lol.

Black Friday stuff:

 

2x XBox 360

Injustice 2

3 games for XBox 360 + 1 Wii game (4 for $8)

Fingerlings, Tamagotchi & GS bag (for me -- they didn't have Crash Bandicoot Pop in my store)

Lego Ninjago Movie for Switch

Wolfenstein 2 Pack

The Last of Us

Uncharted Collection (not that great a deal but hubby wanted to play it before he started the 4th and LL... he's a completist)

Madden & NBA for 360 from Redbox (for personal use)

Lego City Undercover for Switch

Zelda Explorer's Edition for Switch

 

Got some small appliances from Macy's, and a few things we need from the house... and clothes.

 

 

Skipped because hubby thinks prices will go lower within the next few months/year(s) and we have that backlog above + other games to finish:

 

Wolfenstein 2 (also because he hasn't played Wolfenstein 2 Pack yet)

Sonic Forces

Persona 5

Nier Automata

South Park

Mario + Rabbids (this one will have to be around the $15 mark before he bites.. he hates Rabbids for some reason)

FIFA 18

 

Skipped the PS4 deal this year too because we got the limited edition gold one a few months back (and no, he's not trading it in)

 

The couple that plays (and hoards games) together stays together lol

I get the feeling that everyone who couldn't find or thought Target's cheap games were sold out didn't look further than electronics. For my store at least, they were way down the aisle next to pallets of game systems on a carboard shipper with slots marked by pricepoint. I couldn't find the games in electronics either until I asked. Guy pointed me directly to them and nobody was even looking at them lol.

Just curious why so against getting a CC?  Unless you tend to overspend or don't pay it off each month, kohls and target are the few cards that are really worth signing up for, free shipping, better discounts, etc...

Looks like everywhere local sold out of Horizon Zero Dawn, before I buy it digitally, anyone know of a retailer that still has it for $20 and would ship?

The difficulty was a joke. Still loved the game though

 

In addition to games, I bought pillows and pants. :lol:

Opening too many CC's can be bad for credit and I prefer to only have one or two that offer unlimited rewards on cashback offers. I don't really see a need for a Kohl's card or Red card as they offer little in terms of real benefits to me.

Actually having less CCs is worse for credit.

Was hoping for a $30 GT Sport and a $10 Beserk 😕 oh well. I have 11 games in my backlog and a VR headset.

Also, can't get over the fact Dunkirk isn't out yet.

Not sure about your Kohls, but mine here in Port Chester, NY has expended this section a lot. It used to be maybe 5-10 bargain bin games, but now they have games behind glass, systems behind glass, and theres maybe 25 games there or so higher quality ones and bargain bin ones mixed. Usually the coupons cannot be used on this stuff, but sometimes if you connect to the in-store wifi a coupon pops up to use it. It's completely random though.

I was holding out for a few items. Hopefully cyber Monday will have some deals on digital currency if that's what you want to call it. I'm needing to get iTunes , Google play cards mainly. I wouldn't mind to pick up some cards for my consoles to use during the upcoming Christmas sale.
