I know but this sale isn’t clearance. It’s a sale they do every year. Most of these games go back to regular price within a week or 2

Probably regional. YMMV

you should post where this was as i have never seen this. do the games actually ring up 50% off or are they manually overriding the prices?

 

edit: looks like octopath actually shows as 50% off on brickseek but it's not every store near me

Brick seek said a local store had it but I searched through everything and couldn’t find it. Did find World Ends with you for the Switch for 24.99 though. But brickseek said that was not in the store I was in so very ymmv. You have to find a scanner and go through all you are interested in.

They used to put them in a cardboard stand usually around the electronics register.  Don't know if it's the same this time.

Exactly the same. My local Target has 2 bins full of games. Just tedious looking through all of them not knowing where to put the games you’ve looked through from the top of the bin

I'm showing Octopath for 29.99 at all stores in my area, so it looks like this is a go.  I'll stop by Target tomorrow and see what they have.

Thanks for the reminder...I was at T last night and didn't notice the bins out yet.  But last year I rummaged through and picked up Crayola Scoot (Switch) and FF 15 Royal Edition (PS4) for $10 each.

I was going to say I don't remember this but last year I do remember seeing it. My nearest store had a ton of games overflowing in two bins. It was a pain just to look through them and took forever. No organization, just a big mess. Someone left a shopping cart just so people could move the top pile of games to look at what was inside the bins.

Do they have endcaps with a bunch of games in the security cases? I found some of the sale games there and some in the bins (but I also found some non discounted games in the bins so my store is just a mess).

It would be nice if someone posts an official list from Target, like they did last year.  Guess it would have to be an employee though.

I got 3DS Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for $10. It was the Selects one. This Target also had Smash Bros 3DS (unsure of price).

Oh & about 40 copies of Assassin's Creed Unity. Get 'em before they don't sell out.

Wow, that is a great price for Octopath, and I definitely recommend buying it if it rings up at that price.  I bought it a while ago as part of B2G1.

 

Last year, I scored Switch versions of Monster Hunter: Generations Ultimate for $15.74 and Dark Souls: Remastered for $16.74, so I'm curious to see what other prices people find.  You can always ask any in-store rep to scan the shelf barcode (given the corresponding game is in its shelf location) so that they don't have to take each game out of the case to price check.

Nice thanks for posting.  My target never does the bins and always leaves everything either in their individual sections/cases or on end caps so I will have to search through those.  But typically they are somewhat organized by system and letter at least.  The hard part will be getting them to scan through the security cases.  Definitely interested in what treasures I can find.

Where these marked at these prices or just rang up as such?

All the ones I found were on the endcap, no prices on them. There was a sign that they were 50% off, but you had the scan them to find out what the price was. Keep in mind some things in the endcap were not 50% so ymmv. Think it’s a dumping ground for one offs too. There was a working scanner not too far from electronics so I just checked all I was interested in (no problem scanning through the security box around the games).

Pretty much all 3DS software is part of this deal. Pokemon sword/Shield Double Pack is also part of the deal.

Finally found Octopath at an out of the way Target. Last one there. That was in the regular Switch area and still marked as 59.99, but rang up 29.99.

Picked up a couple more 3DS games there. Actually found Shin Megami Tensai strange Journey Redux for $14.99.

Thanks OP!

 

I was able to snag the last Octopath Traveler at Target for $30

 

Weird how these sales are kept secret for only the most hardcore CAGs like us.

 

This was one of the only remaining Nintendo IPs I really wanted but was waiting for $30 physical to bite
