That's insane, I worked for Target a long time ago but I don't ever remember patio stuff ever going down to 90%. We picked up a couple cheaper chairs and a table a few weeks back, but would definitely be all over that.

Went back on my lunch today and it's back to regular clearance prices. Boooo, lol.

Just contact Atlus' technical support via email and explain your situation (defective product seeking replacement) and hopefully they will send you an RMA# and provide all necessary info on the return process.  Good luck!

Good news! It worked!

My Target recently cut our game sections down to one aisle, so I am hopeful that a lot of games will hit clearance soon. One side is Switch, 3DS, and PC games. The other side is half Xbox 360/One and half PS3/4.

Just now getting a chance to post this, so it might be too late, and perhaps YMMV, but ...

My Target was doing 90% off original price on patio furniture, outdoor rugs, etc yesterday in preparation for a new seasonal display.

The items had clearance stickers that showed far more than the actual discounted price, and the cashiers had to override the POS, so that leads me to believe this may be a one-off sitch.

Still wouldn't hurt to look though. I got a five-piece patio set and then four other patio chairs for $105.

That was a killer deal! Nice going!

Target has some seriously Fuck internal pricing problems. I often can't go a week without finding an endcap that has sale prices thrown over the regular shelf tag, only to see that the "sale" price is exactly the same as the regular price. They do this often on endcaps. 

I don't know if they're trying to pull a fast one or they just have one messed up idea of what a "sale" means.

Yeah, that was a crazy lunch hour of getting the wife to the store with the van. If we had more time and room, I would've gone nucking futs on outdoor rugs and whatnot.

Online item means someone bought it online, returned it to the store, and they marked a discount before putting it on the shelf.

While that is most likely true most of the time, my local target tends to mark many of its clearance items as online items.
I doubt someone is returning stacks of online orders of 2ds, classic nes & phone cases etc. at my target.

Agreed there.  if it was just one or 3 that would be within reason but there's too many for it to be coincidental.

Very true. I believe online item tags also do not get reduced typically. I know many Targets that only stock online, as-is, and repackage items exclusively and the price does not budge.

Watch it be 1 Online Item in front of a stack of normally priced boxes.  :P

Perhaps, but it's just as unlikely at this point you'd have that many to clearance out either (as for the 2DS's anyway).  May want to bring it to your store's attention either way, as others have said, online items (probably) won't get discounted or reduced correctly.

I've noticed my local Target seems to have a lot more "Online" and "AS-IS" tags recently in the past couple of months. Could be a clever method for management to discount items while bucking the routine percentage dips traditional clearance items experience.

My local stores have been doing this for three years or so now.  Certain types of items that hit clearance always get these tags instead at 25% and stay there for a year or two before getting another discount.  Very few games here get regular clearance anymore.  Games from when they just started doing this just got down to 70% off about four months ago.

It isn’t, was back at the store with the 2ds’ and some were gone, rest still have the online tag on them.
Had to look around the other departments to check the stickering and all the depts had stuff that seemed randomly tagged online.

It definitely isnt a new thing Target is doing, but they are doing it more frequently with Clearance. As-Is or Online item stickers have become more frequent at my local Targets. Some are random items, some are previous clearance items that I assume went out of the system. A few weeks back I got Hey Pikmin 3ds for 8.47 (plus 10% employee and 5% redcard discounts) with an As-Is sticker. Today, same store, same price for Monster Hunter Stories 3ds. Both games were clearanced out back in December/January around here.

Sooooo, what if I bought an item online and returned it to the store, waited a day and hopefully it’s marked cheaper as an “as-is” item?

I honestly wouldn’t put this kind of effort to save a few bucks, but what’s to stop people from doing this? Same with BestBuy open box items...

The other possibility is store might sending it back to warehouse

It's not. You can see a partial of the Yellow sticker on the 2DS that is the fifth one from the front.

 I didn't do it on purpose, but I've seen this happen with an item that I bought online. Returned it to the store and eventually found it in the electronics clearance section where it sat for a while. They reduced the price further, and I ended up re-buying it. Pretty sure it got the online item sticker.

What area are you in if you don't mind me asking?

FWIW, the likely reason you guys are seeing so many of the Online Item pricing .. people aren’t being properly trained on their own price changes. Target did away with the price change teams, so they no longer have dedicated team members for stuff like that. I’ve seen someone at my store marking things with as is or online item because they couldn’t figure out how to print clearance labels.
