how are those "sweet heat" starburst/skittles?  I'm trying to imagine the flavor but not really coming up with anything, but I might have to get the starburst just to try pineapple and watermelon

The girlfriend loves the chocolate Frosted Flakes so in for as many as they got, she averages 2 bowls a day

Get that cereal for cheap, you'll have more money for the insulin later! haha

 

(I'm eyeing up if I want me a box or two as well so just as guilty)

Was at a target yesterday, same deal. Some items had numerous copies and BS reported out of stock.

but what did the app or online report? 

I think i've read on here something happens with the app when your actually in the store? Like perhaps it uses GPS and then does it reflect actual inventory counts? 

I know for sure it accurately reflects price points because I've seen it do it,  i.e. launched app at home and it showed the full retail price, but then when I was in store it "updated" price to reflect the current clearance price others were reported. 

 

Not arguing here, just actually asking to see if I can glean any more info on how this all works!

I haven't tried the Starburst yet, but the Skittles are pretty good.  The closest thing to them is kinda... imagine you ate some skittles, and then immediately ate some Hot Tamales candy.  You get a pretty standard Skittles flavor, but then the aftertaste kicks in and it's cinnamon-y.  I like them.

I don't use apps on my phone, so I couldn't answer that. 

 

This was for various items too, games, home clearance mugs/thermos. I found four copies of Yokai Watch 3DS at $11.98, brickseek said out of stock.

Yeah, I've found Brickseek to be a little inconsistent lately as well. Claimed the closest store to me that had anything was 70 miles away, went in there Saturday and found copies of L.A. Noire and most of the $25 3DS games along with some clearance Marvel Legends figures.

Alright, children. The clearance event you’ve been waiting for is here. Wait til you see this haul...



And here are the numbers to look them up for yourself:
Spoiler

Nasty. Did just discover there are Hostess cereals now though and got a box of Honey Bun, which is surprisingly one of the healthier sugar cereals I've seen. Haven't tried it yet, but expecting great things!

Not worth it. I like spicy and I like skittles, and I didn't eat more than a couple and I tossed the bag.

The Target near me just discounted the Razer 7.1 V2 headset (https://brickseek.co...sku=207-28-1317) so I picked up a pair at $30 (discounted from $100). Me not paying attention to the box, I assumed these were compatible w/ PS4. While they play the audio, the microphone appears to not be able to be disabled. To my fellow CAGers who picked up these headphones - have you used these on a PS4 and were you able to fix this issue (I could also use any other adjustment capabilities you might have found). Trying to decide if I should return them or not. Thanks!

FYI: I would return them because they are not worth $30, IMO. I upgraded my Kraken to a Logitech G430 and the Logitech is way better when it comes to noice-cancelation, comfort, sound, usability, etc. The Logitech also includes a Green/Pink -> USB adapter so it can be used in multiple configurations. G430 is still $30 at Amazon too.

 

It's a few years old, but I found it way better than the Razer. You could also look at HyperX which are apparently really good as well.

I really appreciate the feedback! Question - are you able to mute the microphone on the Logitech when using it on a PS4? That is my biggest gripe w/ the Razer. Also, how is the comfort level? The Razer feel very comfortable (granted, I haven't used them for more than a couple of minutes).

I haven't used it on PS4 yet, so I can't say. But it does have mute and volume controls on the cord, which the Kraken did not. I found the Razer annoying wrt comfort primarily because I had to squeeze my ears into them. The G430 is shaped more oval-like instead of circular, making it better for your average ear. Maybe my ears are just huge tho hahaha.

Deal of the year right here. I’ve never seen bigger discount anywhere else in my life.

zeldafanjtl, please let us know! I want to get rid of my physical Alan Wake copy, and this would be the ticket for me.


I ended up buying it today. It won't work if you try to redeem it on Xbox.com. You have to redeem it on your Xbox one. I was able to get the dlc which was unlocked automatically too.

Was able to find WWE Entrance Greats Bobby Roode Action Figure (087161369) for $9.58

 

Box was messed up but the price was...

An employee was marking down clearance toys when I was at my local Target this morning and I was able to get the Target-exclusive Mickey Mouse Nendoroid for $17.98!
https://brickseek.co...sku=323-01-1592

 

Also grabbed the last Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite Iron Man vs Mega Man action figure set for $7.48.

https://brickseek.co...sku=087-06-8391

Thanks for the heads up on Mickey, was able to find one for my mother. Was just randomly on an endcap, had the 30 dollar clearance tag on it but rang up 17.98 :D

I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the figure, I'm starting to understand why people go so crazy for these now.

I figured out how to mute the microphone on Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 headphones I got yesterday. At the end of the microphone is an integrated mute button. You can barely see it - just press the side of the mic towards the end. When pressed, the end of the microphone turns red - and that's it! Makes these headphones much more acceptable now.

Ah, I assumed you knew that and the function simply didn't work on PS4. Nice to hear!

At my local Target they started jamming the end caps with non-clearance games, similar to his picture; so these may not all be clearance.
