Which brings up the question of the discount being automatic or not. If it's $15 or so after discount, I'll go pick it up, since that's likely the cheapest I'll find it at retail, unless someone blows it out.

Did the discount happen when they completed the sale, or when they scanned it in the register to start with?


Looks like Promo Code REDSTAR25 works with in store pickup.

Don't assume those items are actually in-stock. At one out here store, they had RE4 (PS2) for $14.99 and they turned out to be non in-stock, as someone supposedly stole them the weekend before. :roll: Funny thing is how the items are still listed as in their inventory from three weeks ago.


Well that just tells you how often they do inventory.

picked up PDZ Collectors for $15. not a huge fan of the game, but I thought I'd give it another chance. If I don't like it, it trades for $12.

Indeed it does.

However, the three stores in my area, all of which list Painkiller: Hell Wars as being on-hand with 2 copies, suddenly don't have them when I actually try to place an order.

The GBA micro, however, does appear to be in-stock at one store.

dang. that was the item i was hyped for too. so only those 3 colors are the new guy? thanks.


If you want a black Advance SP with the new brighter screen, go get it. Black/Onyx is Graphite. See?

Go get it, dude. You can't beat the brighter screen.

wait a minute. isn't graphite a specific color? and Onyx another? 'cause Onyx is the black one, and that uses the old screen, from what i can tell.

Yes the Onyx and Graphite models are about the same as a Platinum and Flame Red model...meaning...they are completely different. Onyx has old front lit screen, Graphite has the brighter backlit screen. BTW, where are you guys seeing the extra money being taken off the clearence price as shown in the first post? Is that some extra sale or coupon? Because I only see clearane prices.

I picked up Kameo and Perfect Dark Limited Edition today for $15 each. They rung up $19.98, but an additional $5 off promo amount was taken off of each because I guess all blowout items are an additional 25% off.

This was at the Culver City Compusa and there were lots of games left, although the PD Limited's weren't in the typical 360 place, they were in a stand with other 360 items.

My CompUSA has claims to have 2 Pearl Blue SPs in stock for 69.98, I guess that's unadjusted. If anyone REALLY wants one I guess I could arrange to get one for you.

icecubedx5, the price in the column is the clearance price, but this special is 25% *more* off the clearance price, if I read the first post right.

Something that I think is pretty important about this sale. Items that are listed as Clearanced at other stores could possibly have a universal clearance price, regardless of what store it is listed at.

For example, a store an hour away listed Dark Water on DVD for $11.98, and I would be interested in picking that one up. But, my local store did not have it in the inventory. I go to my local store to pick up PDZ LE, and there Dark Water is on the shelf.

After dealing with a knowledge-less clerk (yes, I told him, PDZ LE should ring up as $20, your website says so, and it did), Dark Water rang up at it's clearance price.

Sooo, in theory, regardless of what the website inventory says, if your store has it in store and it's clearanced somewhere else, you have a chance of getting it at clearance - 25%.

Yeah, pretty much anything in the store that ends in .98 will ring up 25% off - star or not.

I picked up the AudioVox Sirius receiver for 7.50 with a 30$ rebate (it requires signup but I'm missed howard stern since he went of the radio). so Cha-Ching. I also picked up some cheap pc games (Movies, Demon Stone, sacred)

How is it? I'm considering the hour drive to pick one up (and alot of other shit, including a Bush audio stand for $12 each). The only thing I'm worried about is driving an hour for Comp USA inventory b.s., where nothing is in stock or it's damaged if it is.

I just got back from my local CompUSA. I picked up "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" GBA for $5.98. It was clearanced at $7.98 but was lower because of the Red Star discount. I also saw "The Chronicles of Narnia" GBA there for $9.98, but I didn't pick it up because of the poor reviews I had read about it. They also had several X-box and X-box 360 games on the table, but I paid little attention as I have neither system.

When I went to the counter to purchase the "Harry Potter" game, the clerk couldn't believe it was so low and asked me if there were anymore back on the clearance table. I told him that there were two left and he said that he was going to pick one up when he got off from work.

Finally, I was totally surprised to find out that the local CompUSA doesn't seem to carry Gamecube games anymore. They had none on the clearance table or in the cases where they store the new games. The CompUSA about an hour from here has "Gun" for Gamecube listed at $9.98 so I've asked my friend who lives there to pick one up for me when he goes back home tonight.

Hi, the CompUSA store in City of Industry, CA is closing down. All games are 20% off. They range from ticketed price of $5 to $60.. There were still a large assortment for all the systems. The flyer at the store said that the Chino, Torrance, and a Los Angeles are also closing down and has the same clearance. Everything else in store is also 20-40% off.

Hmm I guess now is a good time to grab Kameo.


Definately, since it rings up under $15.
