I quit shopping at BBs when the liquidation begins.  The deals were soooo much better during their regular sales.

FYI, check your emails I just got a 10% off coupon for the MOA Best Buy because they are closing the mobile phone store part of it or something. Plenty of restrictions and I don't know what triggers it (I have it listed as one of my preferred stores as I used to work at MOA and I'd stop in there all the time and it is still one of the two closest stores to where I live). 

 

Also, if anyone bought some blurays at Blockbuster and would like some regular bluray cases instead of those ugly converted dvd cases to put them in I've got some I'm looking to get rid of. I'd prefer to sell them in groups of 10 for $10, but would maybe consider dividing it up more. Otherwise they are going on eBay soon. 

 

Shoot me a PM if interested, I don't check this thread often.

Just an fyi...

Minnetonka Toys R Us has a copy of Project X Zone Limited Edition for $20 (the stock checker lies, they've had 2 copies for months, but I only just today picked up one of em).

Also, Best Buy in Minnetonka has a Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition. You can PM GameStop for $10 if you don't wanna goto Shingle Creek/Brooklyn Center for their potentially gutted copy or are not making an order over $25 online

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Best Buy in Minnetonka has some clearance games that I believe just went down to 50% off.  Examples of what I  bought with GCU (20% off taken before 50%):

 

:3ds: Project X Zone - $11.19

:360:  Amazing Spiderman - $11.19

:360:  Family Guy - $9.59

:ps3: Dead Space 3 - $7.99

:360: DMC =- $8.39

 

There were more of those listed above and some others.  I missed out on Monster Hunter Ultimate 3 for Wii U

 

EDIT:  Somehow lost this one when posting - :wiiu: Wonderful 101 $10.79 (two left at 3:30 PM)

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! for the Xbox 360 was $11.98 (Labeled as $19.98) at the Knollwood Target.  At least 2 copies were left.

Minneapolis area folks looking for a copy of Wonderful 101 for $12 at Toys R Us clearance might care to know...

 

The Minnetonka store had about 9 left as of 2pm Sunday. They weren't marked as clearance before so probably a big part of why they were still there but they are marked now.  Had a fair amount of games left in general (a few by the front door but plenty in the back electronics area).

I've had awful luck finding anything recently. A 3ds crossword game from TRU is the best I've done for the last couple of months.

My god, the Anoka one is finally on the chopping block. I don't think I ever saw that parking lot with more than 15-20 cars in it, even on the busiest of days. At a certain point I just figured it was an entire store version of Milton Wadams and Kmart just forgot it was still sitting there open.

Yea, I agree. It's so remote and far out of the way - very bad local, but close to my parent's house.

Yeah by today's standards it is a bad location. But when it was built it was slightly better given that the monster known as Riverdale didn't exist at the time and there wasn't much in shopping in the area. And with it being near the technical college it seemed like a good idea since K-Mart could have drawn some good business from college students. But sadly that's not the case as I suspect not even the college students know that K-Mart is across the street and are instead going to Riverdale for whatever shopping needs they have (or simply pretending that K-Mart is not there).

Indeed. I'd say Sears is on it's way out too, but they stay afloat because of their appliances and tools.

Games are 25% off, systems and accessories 10% off. Anoka still had a ton of stuff. Got Hometown Story which was clearance marked for $16, I got it for less than $6.

At this point I wouldn't be shocked if the Coon Rapids Sears is gone by the end of next year at the latest. The last time I was in there I saw more employees roaming around than customers. And this mind you was December last year on a Saturday during the holiday shopping season. Not a good sign for Sears.

I stopped by the Blaine K-Mart yesterday. Very depressing experience. No electronics or gaming to speak of the entire area is gutted with only some figures left. Mostly random crap that's left and they only had three registers open with lines fairly backed up. I saw nothing of value left in my opinion.

The Lake Street Kmart in Minneapolis is also dead. Tons of shovelware and the gaming section is down to one wall. Kmart will be gone soon at this rate.

I've always said that the Lake Street Kmart is where hope goes to die. Personally can't wait till that store is gone, the building can be plowed over and Nicolet isn't broken up by a shitty Kmart any more.

Sears in St. Paul has Pokemon Y x2 for $12.99 each, Pokemon X x1 for $12.99, Mario Kart 7 for $14.97, and a handful of PS4 + XB1 headsets and controller chargers. Happy hunting!

Selling my PS4 with 2 controllers & 3 games:
https://post.craigsl...209464785/vq77j

 

Located in Uptown Minneapolis.

 

Like new perfect condition with a brushed metal skin applied, 2 controllers, all cables, 3 games (Monopoly Family Fun Pack, Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition, and Driveclub). Everything pre-owned from Gamestop would be $533 (that's including tax @ 6.875%). Willing to take $133 off of Gamestop's price for $400 even. Keep in mind that outside of gaming it also doubles as a standard and 3D BluRay player & has apps for Spotify, Netflix, Vidzone, Crackle, Crunchyroll, Popcornflix, FUNimation, HBO GO, Plex, SnagFilms, YouTube, Hulu, NHL, Quello HD Concerts, WWE Network, NBA Gametime, YuppTV, EPIX, and more. If you aren't interested but know someone who may be - pass it on. Offers welcome but Lowballs will be ignored.

Hello Twin Cities.  I see this Thread has been Dormant for awhile but I am hoping there is some CAGs still around.  I am a CAG that has been on the site for a very long time and will be in MN for at least several months.  I have started hitting SAVERs but if anyone CAGs can direct me to some good game hunting spots, it would be appreciated.  Also, is there any indoor flea markets that are active during the winter?

Just wondering if any CAGs in Twin Cities, MN were able to find Rise of the Tomb Raiders on PS4 at Costco for $19.97, Coon Rapids had nothing and I can't think up an excuse to go to Maplewood or Maple Grove. I know there hasn't been much in this thread lately.  Figured there may be some Switch sightings posted here but I haven't seen much myself.

*sigh* Guess I'm all alone in the Minnesota forums.  Today at Goodwill in Blaine saw they had 4 copies of Injustice 2 for PS4 and a couple for X-Box one at $49.99 not too great but if you drop off a bag of stuff the receipt has a 25% coupon bringing it to $37.50.  Sunday the 18th theres a promo for 30% off purchases of $25 or more.
