HI,

 

     Not sure where to post this, but I have a Target question.  A while back, Target had a buy 2 get one free special going on and you could preorder Red Dead Redemption 2 as part of the deal.  I remember getting an email from Target when RDR2 was pushed back to this year, but that was it.  When I contact customer support  they can't find the transaction, I didn't keep the emails, and I'm not sure how I paid.  Should I be worried, or will Target send the game.

 

Target sent me 2 emails different times stating the date was pushed back. in each email, it would ask you to approve the new date so they can keep your preorder. if not they would cancel it.   after reading your post i went to go check my preorder from last year and its currently sitting there waiting to be shipped.

Went to my local target (Warwick, PA) when the DualShock 4’s were reduced to $20. BS showed they were in stock, but when I went to check out, it rang up as full price (even though brickseek said $20). Target employee would not help price adjust.

Fast forward to today, I went in for a few of the newly discounted clearance games. Brickseek said they were all in stock and discounted. Upon arriving at the clearance section, none of the games were in sight.

I asked about Digimon, upon retrieval it scanned at full price. Curiously, I scanned another “clearance” game. Skyrim for PS4 (not VR), which rang up as full price.

Scanned 1 or 2 more “clearance” games that were there - all rang up at full price.

I’m not sure if it’s just my luck or if the workers at my local target desire to flip stuff; but I have to say brickseek and my target have not been on the same page at all lately :(


I just want to digi-volve!

 

it sounds like your store is just really bad at doing their price change workload.

Any opinions on these? Debating on whether or not to grab them or not, particularly the Blu-Ray player so I can keep my PS4 Pro in my office rather than use it as the main entertainment center for the living room.


I got the tri-band linksys router (model 2200 I think) on clearance from about $60 a few months back. Absolutely love it, if that helps.

Yuuuup. I went two days ago when the news of those game first broke on here and none of them rang up as such. Next day I decided to check back and they must've applied the clearance prices although nothing was priced as such. Scanned at $5.98 for Project Cars 2 and Agents of Mayhem. Sweet.

Lmfao... so after grabbing all of the games I wanted from clearance and proceeding to pay, there was a guy I assume from loss prevention starring at me. I stare at him back with a wtf do you want look.

I checked on BS yesterday and it said my store had Project Cars 2 for $5.98. I just checked BS this morning and now it is $19.99. Has this happened to anyone else on other items? I have noticed that Walmart does the same thing (increase clearance prices).

I believe it is when an item does not sell after being marker down to 70% off, they pitch it or donate it to the Goodwill.

Clearance stuff will ring up as Item Not Found and pulled from store, typically will be donated to local Goodwill. If you managed to find one stranded somewhere, Target employee may still be able to sell it to you if it has the price sticker. Granted, if it 50% sticker, don't expect any adjustment to 70% off price point.

Got it. Except I don’t think Goodwill gets it.

There are a few places that have popped up in my area that resell stuff I’ve seen on clearance at Target. I think they buy it wholesale on pallets (perhaps at auction).

Under this scenario, it would make sense for Target to revert to MSRP on “Salvage Day”. Then they can tally up all the salvage items and come up with a value for (a) liquidation auction price and (b) inventory valuation for write offs for selling items for a loss.

Or, it could be like my local target that doesn't clearance things like they should, and just lets them sit on the shelf instead of salvaging. Eventually, they go back up to $40-$60 and just sit on an overly-full shelf forever. There is a mint copy of NHL 2013 for ps3 going for $50 right now, I believe.

Question regarding the LG SJ7. I've been using the SJ7 Sound bar for a few days, and I've noticed that the unit will turn itself on and off at random times. I'm not sure if it's picking up a signal from other HDMI connected devices. I'm currently using it in optical mode. I've also updated the firmware. The issue still happens.

Is it possible to pick up a game at a different store, or online, and return/rebuy at a store that shows the clearance price?

Online seems unlikely. From another store, YMMV.

I haven't had any problems like that through Optical, I don't see how it would be finding other devices if you aren't connected over hdmi/arc, it does have an auto poweron mode that you could disable that may be detecting some sort of signal down the optical path and causing it to come on

I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the advice.

No prob, it's a button on the remote, I have it on personally but it could depend on your setup on if it's going to detect a signal and trip on or not

It may not go to Goodwill everywhere, but Goodwill is definitely a prime destination. I’ve picked up multiple products from various departments at Goodwill that still have the Target clearance sticker on them.

The rest of what you wrote seems accurate, though. Better to say you donated $500 worth of games at MSRP than $50 at clearance price.

Yeah, my local Goodwill has hundreds of items with Target clearance stickers still on them, some with 20 or 30 copies of the same item.  They definitely have some sort of deal with Target as far as unloading unwanted product goes.

Not sure if anyone mentioned a while back, but the sku for Ni No Kuni 2 got merged. I just picked up the premium edition for $19 with red card since it's on sale this week. Guess I'll have to beat the first one now.

Modem not bad, the others not great. 4k players regularly go on sale under 100, and I got a nearly same router(1750) for 50 earlier this year on Amazon.

This happened to a bunch of b2g1 pre orders that I made last year...didn’t see the email and they got canceled.

No need. Completely separate games similar to the Final Fantasy series. And with NNK even the gameplay is entirely different.
