Not game related, but I found a great Champion jacket that was marked at $30 clearance (50% off). Only the blue color, not black. Wore it all day yesterday and I love it. Very comfortable and I think it is a nice looking jacket.

I will look up the name when I get home and provide a brickseek link.

Thx again to everyone who participated in the previous (and this) threads. As for flippers..I'd hope they'd take a cue from this and keep their bragging offline. 😁

I'm sure plenty of people on here have bought something simply to resell, so I don't think it's a big deal. If you can't get something, too bad, maybe you'll get the next deal. Plenty of deals I have missed out on due to people buying up the stock either for gifts or to resell. Unless the store places a limit on how many you can buy, hiding a thread won't stop it. Same deal could be posted to SD, Reddit or some other place, which often happens.

Anyway, just post a clearance deal if you want or keep it to yourself, whatever.

Eh, they're Razer. Five mice is barely like a 5 year supply of mice for a single computer anyways.

what mouse do you recommend then?    high end mouse or gaming mouse please. 

 

NOTE: For 2 years now I have been keepin an eye on the pc gaming gear at Target waitin for these "clearance deals" I knew were coming. 

NOT a PC Gamer but have always eyed entry and now with my latest pickup I am for sure in...

Just need to build a PC now...  :shock:

 

The funny thing is at the 1st Target when I got there, was like 3pm, but they still had the $4.99 3ds games and the eveee bundles or whatever, but since I thought it was jus a new price I didn't move on em.. 

I was so excited about the mice i scored, and figured I'd come back later for any of the $5 games.. 

At the second Target, where I got the keyboard and the headeset I noticed that ALL the 3ds games were pulled, gone, not on the shelves, and i thought that was odd.. 

Then I got home and saw the prices had gone up, or they were now listed OOS everywhere, even then in the last hour I had seen plenty being pulled off the shelves. 

 

yeah so no idea what actually happened with all that. 

 

 

Sure would have been nice to get some $5 games but I'm not gonna trip about it..

Can't make this shit up: just got off BB chat with. . .John Wick. Lol, the other 3DS game I was trying to PM from this $5 fire sale was denied yesterday but he hooked me up! So if your Target is sold out, might be worth a try at BB for a PM as I've gotten both games that we were after now. GL!

Jurai started the thread, so they must have locked it. I think similar thing happened to previous Target clearance thread, whoever started that one locked it after getting upset over something.

 

First post has changed to "this forum can't be properly moderated, read the comments".

Razer is kind of like turtle beach headsets for consoles. They are the popular brand that is known but they are average.

For a gaming mouse I recommend Logitech. The GPro, G703, and G903 have all been amazing. And I love Logitech’s keyboards too. As a matter of fact I grabbed some Logitech gear on clearance this past summer at Target. But even before then I had already switched to Logitech from Razer/Corsair. Corsair was nice but I just think the Logitech mice are superior. And well Razer felt like nothing special.

Yeah I definitely don't care for Razer.  They feel cheap, lightweight and seem poorly made.  I much prefer Logitech for keyboards and mice and Corsair for peripherals as well.

I hate to see Jurai and others not wanting to post deals anymore, but I do understand. I’d probably feel the same way if I was the one posting all these deals and then see people bragging about buying out the stores. It’s really unnecessary and childish.

Anyway, I really appreciate the deals that have been posted over the last year. I’ve got a lot of great games for amazing prices and even a few non gaming things thanks to the posters in this thread.

TBH it's rare that CAG gets wind of something first anymore from my experience. I try to share finds elsewhere here and vice-versa but insomniacs usually beat me to the punch. My Target's are a joke for clearance so I'm not really able to post personal finds either. Most all of the great posters have migrated or just simply cutoff this site, ironically from moderation.

 

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Same for me. The reduced price guide thread used to be amazing. Now it's dead, and I feel I'm the only one who posts there anymore. (didn't forget about you Darby if you see this!). Something happened with Blackbeard, who used to post excel spreadsheets to help find the guides. He bounced last year and the thread died.

 

I used to give away so much here back in the day, from free XBL codes to club Nintendo points. I do post finds here though I often caution myself, especially until after I get what I was looking for in fear of scalpers buying everything up.

 

And to members who post "who cares if scalpers buy out stores, it doesn't affect you". How in the hell do you know that? Do you personally know where every member lives? Who is to say one isn't your next door neighbor and then you come here complaining "someone buys out my area every time a deal is posted".

Did Yakuza Kiwami 2 ever get clearanced at Target? I’m still disappointed it was never on sale during Black Friday.

The crytits are the real problem TBH because I've missed plenty of deals that I was just late to the party on. The people that cry the hardest want something to be available without the hassle of watching like a hawk. When I miss something, it's usually because I'm a day late or hours late on something that was time-sensitive. There are deals that came and went that I'm sure I was none the wiser on as well. I say stop blaming others for being vigilant and beat them to the punch.

 

When you lose, you can either cry about it or step up your game.

Found another scalper.

 

Perhaps you missed the whole reason why the last target thread just closed? Where a member was bragging about buying out stores to resell. Yeah, that's totally my fault for 'being lazy'.

I wrote several long responses to this nonsense, but I decided to just summarize it with:

Please post deals. I post deals, so I would like to see the deals you find. I often buy multiples; you can too if you want to, otherwise don't. If you do buy multiples, don't flaunt. If you're not able get a deal then don't feel entitled.

Thank you for this community.

On a related note, anybody that was looking for a deal on Shenmue for Xbox one (a Target clearance title), you can get it for $15 minus 5% coupon on Amazon. The price will probably go lower today.

Edit: Nevermind they're back to $15.97 minus 5% coupon.

So yesterday i found a pokeball plus at target for $14.98, i was prettty happy. Get home and notice the seals were broken, ok weird..... I start messing with the thing and no sound or anything.... I hold down the middle joystick and it flashes RED, meaning no pokemon inside. Some bastard bought the pokeball plus, took the mew and returned it! Looks like i will have to return it now, bummer.

Logitech G series, e.g. G502.

 

I still have Razer mice myself, but I'm done with it. I'm on the 5th one in less than 10 years. Two of them were RMAs, but doesn't change the fact something craps out in a year or two, without fail.

 

 

Razer is kind of like turtle beach headsets for consoles. They are the popular brand that is known but they are average.

They're well above average when they work. They're not really like hating on Beats or something.

Find a store that has it at $35 or whatever and just ask for a replacement

For $17.98, these Razer Kraken USB headphones are good for entry level, right?

Pomona, CA Target has an end cap with clearance games 70% off. Picked up the last copy of LA Noire, Boishock Collection and Burnout Paradise for XBO. Also picked up Quantum Break and NBA Live 18. Several copies of each left. Also saw LEGO SW Force Awakens with Xwing figure for XBO and Star Fox bundle for WiiU. Surprised to find LoZ OoT mixed with non clearance console games on an endcap. Picked it up for the current $5 sale price.
