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.

I grabbed these last month. Too lazy to post until now. Man, the cashier was ticked. I knew he wanted these for himself. Either they're allowed to buy it or he was planning on having a friend come by to buy them for him. They were $2 each from a thrift store I rarely go to because the selection is usually Garbador. I go there very often now though.

Finally did well today, not at a thrift, but at a thrift price. Sniped someone at Gamestop trying to sell their 500GB Xbox One. GS offered her $60 cash, I offered her $64 so she wouldn't say no, and she accepted. Needed a serious cleaning and not as good as Postaboy's GW deal, but for a fully working system, I'll take it. Even came with some games still on the HD.

So i need an opinion. The thrift shop has the halo reach limited edition 360 with 2 controllers for 60 plus 20% off. Is this thing a good flip?

Also same shop Okami HD ps4,golden sun for GBA and castlevania circle of the moon for 22. Good buy

The games it looks like are $4.99 each, and the SNES Advantage either says $119.99 or $19.99. I'm guessing it's the latter.

Wow, that snes box looks pretty mint. That’s an awesome find, so glad to know things like this are still being found out there in 2019. Motivates me to go thrifting more often.

some good, good finds at an out of the way goodwill:

 

I went inside and looked around to find nothing ( a couple of ps2 games not worth mentioning). checked all the display cases and found another psp game and not much else. Was bout to head out when I saw another display case near jewelery that was turned around away from everyone so I thought well let me check that really quick. 

 

It was full of games, not sure why they were put there as that wasnt even their place in the store.

 

I checked and found for 5 dollars each the following DS games with cases:

Worms Open Warfare

Final Fantasy 3

Final Fantasy Tactics A2 

 

Opened them up to find further GBA games inside the cases as well:

 

Final Fantasy 6 advance

Final Fantasy 4 advance

Tales of Phantasia

 

Good, excellent; kept looking to find a mint blue Nintendo DS for 19.99 (I grabbed it just because it was in such nice condition - looked like it was never played) And followed that up with a bunch of 360 / ps3 games (a lot were sealed). I left all the sealed ones behind because I just dont need any more 360/ps3 games but I did grab for 3 dollars each:

 

Bioshock Ultimate Rapture edition

The Fight (I didnt even realize I bought this until I looked in the bag later lol)

Epic Mickey 2

Tekken Tag Tournament 2

House of the Dead Overkill

Protoype sealed

Dead Rising 2 Zombrex edition with big box / all extras.

Avatar PSP UMD only (eh why not)

 

finally I find 2 more DS games for 4.99 and these maybe deserve a pic cause theyre my favorite part of the lot:

Spoiler

 

yea its not THAT valuable, but definitely keeping that first run sealed.

Sweet finds. I haven't been hunting as much as I used too. I feel the retro market has cooled off a little bit so hopefully these finds will start happening with more frequency
