Got out to the big thrift store here.

 

They had a Wii and two PS2s (one was fat, think the other was skinny.) They were all $49.99. Hard pass.

 

They also had 3 girly DS games in the box and two Genesis games both 95 sports titles. One was loose and one was in the short box. Passed on all of those too.

 

Also had a bunch of Prima guides for $2 each. Lots of 6th gen games and some 7th. 90% of them were movie based games, though. I did see Crackdown, but passed.

 

My sole pick up ended up being a copy of the "WWE Book of Rules (And How to Break Them)" for 49 cents. Was tempted by Marvel Zombies but it was $3.99, so I passed.

Not the greatest pickup but Ill take it. Yellow stickers were 75% off and they mustve missed these or didnt bother retagging them. All complete, $4.31 total. Ill probably rip them to my laptop then throw them in an Ebay bundle. They also had an original Xbox......with no controllers or cables...........but 2 games..........for $30! I dont get it, I just bought that other Xbox a couple weeks ago for $6.

It appears this is the pawn shop thread also. I have found cash America pawn to be exceptionally good with prices recently. I have gotten games that are still popular and recently released on the cheap. Last week was great with one I stopped in:

Breath of the wild Wii U - $5
Red dead PS4 - $10 (was supposed to be $5 but oh well)
Zelda twilight princess Wii - $2
Zelda Skyward Sword - $2
Captain America PS3 - $2 (no idea this was hard to find)
God of War PS4 - $5
Assassins creed PS4 - $5
Far cry 5 PS4 - $3
Far cry New day PS4 - $3

Another cash America has a Xbox limited edition complete halo 2 for $2 that I grabbed.

I would’ve bought more as they had god eater 3, Zelda switch, and others but they had prices and couldn’t drop them too low. There were popular Wii U games but they weren’t quite low enough. This has been a trend though this year as cash America seems to be more proactive about moving games before they are no longer popular and sit on shelves forever.

Struck out at GW this weekend but scored at the local small thrift! Grabbed all the PS2, PSP, Wii stuff and she said "$1 apiece?". I said "thats perfect!". Then the other lady walks over and says "you interested in those little Nintendo games?". She then brings out all the DS/3DS stuff pictured. Says the local gamestore gave her $42 for what I assume was the 3DS and then offered $72 credit for the rest. Store credit was no good for her because the money was for the store. She was gonna put it on Facebook Marketplace. I asked if $60 cash would work after seeing the games included. She gladly accepted.
