#14307250 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by eminemobied12 on 19 July 2020 - 03:38 AM

Apparently Bee Simulator for Switch is $3 at some stores.


Brickseek link
Unfortunately still $25 at any store that has it on clearance near me.
But thanks for the info! Wouldn't have thought that was on the clearance list. I figured that was a "budget" $19.93 title they love to carry a bunch of.

#14307186 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Posted by eminemobied12 on 18 July 2020 - 08:52 PM

For the retro Nintendo stuff, what link do you use to see when those deals pop up, and what days/times?

I don't think there is a specific day or time. My experience in an Amazon Warehouse leads me to believe it's just whenever the person grading/pricing it gets to it on the trolly full of returns, damaged packaging etc.

And as a person who purchases regularly from the warehouse section, it has been very random to find something you want. My best luck has been around 4am est. But I'm certain that's just luck/random. 10pm, 3pm... i just check regularly and hope to find something.

Clearance has been so random lately. Maybe it's just me.

Found a copy of FFX/X-2 for 15 after literally checking on it daily for weeks. It was almost closing time and I only went for Paper Mario. Got lucky.

Do you use this to get CFW or another website?

That is exactly what I use step by step. It even includes the options for region changing, which i need to do with ny Japanese 3DS's.

If you make any mistake trace your steps back and you'll be fine.

Anyone reading this, take your time for each step and you'll be surprised how easy it is at the end.

Posted by eminemobied12 on 18 July 2020 - 01:00 AM

Anyone on the fence about this, it's a great deal and super easy to use CFW on.
I have approximately 22 3DS/2DS systems. 3DS, 3DSXL, N3DS, N3DSXL, 2DS, N2DSXL, N2DSLL, N3DSLL, 3DSLL... I have all types.

I have noticed 128gb is a good SD card if you plan on adding a TON of games. 32gb will get you all the old school games and a decent amount of 3DS games. But some are 1-3gb a game. That fills the card up quick.

I have put CFW on all models of 3DS/2DS. I saw someone mention earlier if there was any difference in getting a cheap Japanese model 3 or 2DS then adding CFW. You can easily add CFW the same way and 1 more step will change the region if you'd like to NA. The only downside (and this isn't 100% for any model or region) is the eshop doesn't work. And sometimes game updates will error out. You can usually find the update as a file online anyway.
Putting CFW and region changing doesn't always have that effect. But I'd say a huge majority of the time, it does. Oh, and a lot of times opening Notifications will cause the system to freeze when trying to go Home. A quick restart fixes this issue.

I love my Japanese 3DS models! They have so many awesome exclusives.

To throw my 2 cents in, as an owner of over a dozen 3DS/2DS systems, I can say 4gb runs out quicker than you think.

NES/SNES, GB/C, even GBA don't take much room.
But 3DS titles can, quicker than you think. I guess it really depends on what you plan to download long term.

I started with a 256gb card years ago and realized that's too much. A good number is 16gb. Especially if you use CFW. 16gb microSD or regular SD can be found for $5 or below very often. Someone in the Walmart clearance thread posted a 16gb PNY microSD dualpack for $2.50. I found plenty at many stores. NEW systems use a microSD and older 3/2DS models use regular SD. MicroSD almost always come with adapters.

P.S. transferring from one SD to another is extremely simple with a Windows computer. Can't speak for other OS's.

I know I said I was going to stay away for awhile, but this place is like heroin to me and if I'm going to be "working from home" for who knows how long, I want to make sure I get in on some cheap shit! I also wanted to thank everyone for the kind words earlier in the thread: it sounds cheesy as hell, but I am desperately trying to see the positive side of things for the benefit of my wife and two young daughters. In any case, I tried to consolidate the last few pages of deals that everyone was reporting on. This first price is the MSRP and the marked down price is the lowest price I've seen listed, either what others have reported or what I've seen personally in my local area. Please let me know if I missed anything in particular or if you find a better price somewhere near you and I'll edit this post with the updated information. Credit, as always, goes to the original posters; I'm also going to start keeping these link dumps in spoiler tags to at least ATTEMPT to prevent lurkers from getting the goods without putting in any work. Without further ado, here's what I found this time:


Stay well, fellow CAGs!

Thank you! This is super helpful.

Thanks for updating with games/non game clearance deals. I appreciate it. Didn't see this posted and wasn't expecting it, but found 

Octopath Traveler for Switch on clearance. $29.00.

Not bad for a game that doesn't get that low in price. Seems YMMV in my area. 50/50.

PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controller For Nintendo Switch - Grookey - Target Exclusive


This is more YMMV than usual. Only a small percentage of stores have these on clearance, as low as $24.98. They seem to be dumping some of their Target exclusive controllers. The one below is $14.98 as well and seems to be clearanced out everywhere. Another Target exclusive version.

I finally got super lucky at Walmart. Saw a store near me had the Rampage arcade machines for 154. Decided to buy one after it showed stock this morning. By the time I got to the store, it dropped to 74! ๐Ÿ˜

#14211570 Link's Awakening Switch $49.94 @ Wal-Mart YMMV

Posted by eminemobied12 on 20 September 2019 - 03:14 PM

Walmart doesnโ€™t want foot traffic?

It probably looked incorrect, I meant they only put the prices in store and not online so people can not price match and have to go into the store to give them more foot traffic.

#14211460 Link's Awakening Switch $49.94 @ Wal-Mart YMMV

Posted by eminemobied12 on 20 September 2019 - 11:04 AM

I actually just got back from my local Walmart and all the new Switch titles were $50. Nothing was $60.

It's been like that for a few months. I think someone calculated it to be 18% off most if not all switch games. But it's only in-store and doesn't show online. Probably to avoid price matching elsewhere and get more foot traffic in store.

I found Zelda and Animal crossing at the Clifton NJ store. Got the last Zelda. They still had about 10 or so animal crossings. No Yokai. Will check tomorrow and call a few more stores ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Thanks for the heads up. They had plenty left.

Kearny also has a ton of AC and Yo-kai

To add to this, the carts used to work. The manufacturing error caused them to stop working. So even if you have a cart that you played, you should check if it still works. Atlus will ony replace it with a digital code, which kinda sucks.

I never knew that was even possible. Is this every copy? Or 1st print runs?
Even broken, I can't see myself shipping a cart for a code. I hate digital. It's easier to mod one of my 3ds's and play a backup of it.

#14188656 GameStop Game Days Sale & Amazon Price Matches.

Posted by eminemobied12 on 13 July 2019 - 06:36 PM

I tried when it was actually in stock and both reps I tried made the same claim that it wasn't the same item. The gamestop page is for 3 different variants mind you. No big deal, just kind of silly.

That's just incompetence, sounds like. They probably tried scanning the UPC and it didnt come up right away, and instead of searching Gamestop and taking the New price as the price to match, they just bs'd you. It's usually more incompetence than anything on their part. Initially the rep told me "I dont think we price match Gamestop.com" until I showed him the target price match site with Gamestop.com clearly on it
