Oh, the people who worked there were pretty cool. I was meaning the stock was a mixed bag. It's a college town and subject to seasonal whims- low stock early in the year after people got their financial aid. And then higher throughout the semester as people sold off media for beer money. But if you were patient, you could get some good stuff.

Heads-up if any of you KC gents are interested.
The Target off 119th and Strang Line in Olathe had 2 copies of the Starcraft 2: CE on clearance. Just just hit, so they were sitting around $70.

A lot better then ebay prices.

I used to find all kinds of great deals at Target but in the past year or so it seems like everything disappears before it can drop below the 15% mark in the electronics section. Either that or the stores aren't letting it sit there as long as they used to.

Yeah i been going to CD tradepost for years, untill just recently (year) i found a place called Buy Backs in wichita, kansas. And damn they have awesome deals on Blurays and games.

The more stock they have, the better the price. Like if they have 5 copies of INCEPTION on bluray, the 5th copie will be 4 dollars cheaper. excellent way to move stock. :) games are same way!

I don't think so. I have never seen any when I visited their locations.

One right here...

There haven't been many recent CAG worthy deals in the metro area for awhile. At least none that I've seen.

only gameco left is on N. Oak up in the Northland. Maybe the Paola one but no clue. Way to far of a drive for me.

The N. Oak one still has ridiculous prices. Wouldn't be shocked if they were gone very soon also.

Not sure if anyone has been following the Target PSN+ thread but I was able to get this deal at Chouteau Target off of I-35 in the northland. I grabbed a couple of the 1 year PSN + cards, took them up to the front checkout, showed them the ad, and they adjusted the price.

I doubt its much of a secret nor do I really expect some awesome deals since its pretty easy to box video games up and move them to another location but Best Buy is closing a store in the Northland. The one on Barry Road. (aka the Best Buy next to old Metro North Mall.)

I'm rather surprised to see it go... It was/is a far better store than the one in Liberty and/or the one close to Zona Rosa/Board Walk. Its also one of the original Best Buy stores. Number 37. (Liberty is 768 and the Zona Rosa one is in the mid 1500's.)

Anyhow, the store is closed right now but opening on Thursday (10 AM) to start selling stuff off.

Again... Not really expecting anything great game wise but hopefully I'm wrong. :)

Yeah, I got an e-mail about it the other day. It said they would have deep discounts on open box merchandise beginning on Thursday. I would imagine they can just transfer all of the new stuff to the other stores but have to sell off all of the floor units and maybe like open box return items from Christmas. I was thinking about swinging by after work and checking it out. I would love to find a good deal on a new desktop tower.

Let me (us) know what you find today when you go... (like if they do have video games on discount) I'm just not going to be able to make it today.

If anyone goes by that Best Buy sale this afternoon and wants to either post or PM what's going on I would appreciate it. I am planning on stopping by there after work but won't get there until around 6. I'm primarily hunting for a computer. If the discounts or the selection if crappy then it would save me a trip.

Yeah, I don't go to Gameco. There is a Vintage Stock in Zona Rosa though.


No way, this is news to me about that Best Buy across the street from Metro North Mall?! Might have to see if they're even still open.

The Toys 'R Us next door to it screwed me over so many times over the years with poor service that I've been shopping at that Best Buy.

I think Best Buy is completely closed now. If I remember right the e-mail I got said they were going to start clearing out all inventory and would close on Feb 15th or whenever they sold everything off. Whichever came first.

There is a new game store named Gamers Paradise on State Line & 76th St. It's the same shopping center with HyVee and BlockBuster. Well, except BlockBuster is gone now.

You been in? If so what are prices like? Hopefully not like GameCo or that other game store that is in Independence and Lees Summit.

This thread has been dead for awhile. I live in Kansas City but haven't really run across any really great deals in awhile.

The Wal-Mart off of Boardwalk (in the Northland next to Zona Rosa) had three PS4s and a few XBones this morning.  (One of the XBones was a Titanfall Bundle)

Well I think we need to restart this thread when St.Louis CAG's are putting up posts.  My KC pride always flares up when I see some STL messages.

edit:  Any luck on garage sales around lately?

I'm on board with you two, that companies business strategy has always been terrible. Other than Olathe there's one down in Pittsburg KS. Wonder how long they will last.

On some actual deal related news, I picked up a cherry used copy of Crackdown 2 at the Olathe Half Price Books last night for $20.
There was a good looking copy of Read Dead Redemption for 360 for $30, and a pretty decent looking Alan Wake CE for $44 when I left if anyone's interested.

The Pittsburg store screwed me over when I was a kid, They are the store that taught me that trading is bad for the gamer... SCREW GAMECO... I live in Indiana now, but go back to Fort Scott afew times a year and remember that store every time.
