So my local store still had Breath of the Wild for $29 today.  Tried an in store pick up.  Got an email that it was out of stock but I can choose to have it shipped for free.  Ok.  It just arrived by an Uber. (And the driver didn’t know the address so she called me asking what it was…I was confused because Walmart hadn’t sent a text that it was out for delivery or anything).  This is just a clusterfuck on their part.

I just  bought a watch from Walmart that arrived at...11 PM. I was long asleep. Pretty crazy.

There sure are some entitled folks on this forum. Many are getting things shipped to you for free, and you're all bickering and complaining about it?

There may be some inconveniences, sure, and I've certainly experienced my fair share of wrong and missed packages, but overall, I remain amazed at how well these retail inventories and mail systems work.

Big thanks to all the sorters, packers, and delivery folks out there - y'all are awesome!

Yeah a whole bunch of them (esp delivery folks) are far far from awesome. Being paid to do a job and just throw packages on your porch or leave in the middle of driveway. I’ve seen it. 
 

Majority of delivery folks are indifferent and plenty take pleasure by intentionally effing up your delivery to make themselves feel a little better about their miserable existence.

There are two sides here and honestly my experience is more common with the latter. I can understand when stores make mistakes and it's not the delivery person's fault but there are definitely enough instances where the delivery person's decisions end up hurting the customer, whether intentional (when they don't follow instructions or decide to simply not care) or unnational (agreeing to too many deliveries).

Hello fellow CAGers. Black Friday has come and gone once again, and with it... comes many purchases.

 

All prices are before tax.

 

Best Buy (Nov 18):

 

Lost Judge Eyes (14.99)

Kena (24.99)

Scarlet Nexus (19.99)

Miles Morales (19.99)

Ghost of Tsushima: DC (19.99)

 

Amazon (Nov 19/20):

Kena (22.00)

Scarlet Nexus (15.00)

Tales of Arise (20.00)

Scarlet Nexus (13.50)

 

For another year, it was crap. First with BB. Dusk Diver 2 was only 19.99 for PS5. I needed that for PS4. This is how I knew I was getting L's this year. Kena was $24.99 rather than 19.99. They held on the price. It's a deluxe edition so there was always a chance, but still its been a a year & 2 months after a 49.99 release. The digital version was 19.99, which made me laugh. Fortunately, a seller on Amazon had it for 22.00. Then after I get the package, it was available for 21.97. I won't let 3 cents kill me. I'm content.

Update (read bold): Just got Kena for $19.99 (before tax) on Amazon. I got what I wanted.

I placed an order for a game on Best Buy when it said estimated arrival: December 29th. And then a day after I placed the order, the item page moved up the arrival date to December 16th, but my order still says the 29th.

 

Does anyone know if Best Buy ships items based on product availability or do they go by the date in the system from your order? Meaning, will my order be prioritized behind people who ordered after me because in the system I ordered when it was expected by the 29th?

 

Wondering if I should cancel and reorder.

Are the Walmart $10 off 50 coupon codes working on games still?

 

WOWFRESH

PAYPAL10

DISCOVER

HOLIDAY10

 

They were working for me yesterday when I tested one out, but now I'm getting error messages. Anyone else having luck?

Those codes don’t work for me anymore. Worked once with my other account but most of the time it says not eligible or add $50 more in cart. TRIPLE10 is another code but doesn’t work for me

of course. The reviews are mediocre so I can easily see a firesale in the future. I don’t buy digital though it’s on sale now on the PSN store.

WOWFRESH still works, noticed it did and canceled/reordered Ultimate Alliance 3 which dropped to $35...two weeks after I bought it full price thinking it'd soon go out of print. Picked up that and the first Mario Rabbids for $48 with the discount.

Not him, but he probably was able to get it for $35.35 which is what it was for like 2 hours earlier today. It's back up to 50 now. Using that rate plus the other item, plus a code like WOWFRESH for store pickup would've knocked $10 off the total. If you add a filler item you could get it for around $40 with one of those codes, assuming the code works for you.

Yeah, it seems to only work if it's available for delivery/pickup in your local vicinity and above the $50 requirement.

 

I'm glad I found a deal on it within my return window, I'm not really enjoying it early on.

Look forward to Black Friday each year. Thank you everyone for the deals and updates.

 

Everything arrived, or store pickup.

 

I didn't know the 14gb portable hdd uses an external power source. Too late now. I missed out on a bicycle and a new pc.

 

I seem to have missed out on the tots for toys, where every toy deserves a tot. Looks like those toys will be used for the tots for toys event.
