#14244796 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by HydroX on 14 December 2019 - 05:07 PM

That’s weird since they’re $200 at all targets on brickseek around me. Wdym online item?

Long winded reply, here we go. lol

 

It means someone purchased it online and returned it in store. Target does not carry certain items (like this one) in the brick and mortar stores, and if that item is an item that is only available online, if it is returned in store, it is marked with a yellow clearance-style sticker that reads "Online Item" and it is given a special discounted price to help move it out of the store. The item is usually placed in the clearance area with the other clearance or repackaged items, because, well, since it is not carried in store, it has no properly allocated shelf space, so they put it with clearance to move it out of the store faster.

The price change teams are gone. However the duties of said teams are spread to individual team members who are responsible for certain areas.

Seasonal area clearance and resets will be priority and will likely have help marking things down, as most seasonal merchandise is one of the main draws of the store.

FWIW, the likely reason you guys are seeing so many of the Online Item pricing .. people aren’t being properly trained on their own price changes. Target did away with the price change teams, so they no longer have dedicated team members for stuff like that. I’ve seen someone at my store marking things with as is or online item because they couldn’t figure out how to print clearance labels.

They did the same with game of throne Oreo. During the hype of season 8. They told me they sold out of it. I visited on Sunday, the whole shelf filled with Oreos. Pos target.


Oreos are an outside vendor product and don’t have accurate counts in the inventory system — if they even have a count, at all.

Most Targets leave it up to Mondelez/Nabisco to fill their own product, and most team members generally don’t know anything about any of this, sadly.

What happens if you return the games still new sealed after getting the gift card?


The return value of the games are adjusted to compensate for the gift card.

Picked one up for $296 after taxes (and team member discount).

Time to sell my slim to GameStop for $180 to recoup some of my losses.

#13698587 YMMV- Gamestop and Best Buy are receiving NES Classics. UPDATED

Posted by HydroX on 24 April 2017 - 08:00 PM

Alright​, ladies and gentlemen, my shift is over, so I'm punching out here too. Time to go home and piss around with MY Classic instead of spending all day talking about them here.

I hope my searches have helped at least one person find one that otherwise may not have. Good luck to you all still searching!


Not many people may say this (I skimmed the last 8-10 pages) but .. Thank you for your help!

I second this.


#13648516 What stores break street dates (that can actually sell them)?

Posted by HydroX on 02 March 2017 - 01:55 AM

OK so I know Wal Mart can't break a street date. I tried buying Halo War 2 when they put it out early and it wouldn't ring up. Any major stores that - if they break a street date - you can get the game?

 

I saw a Lego Worlds at Target today and thought about getting it, but I can get it in the b2g1 next week anyway and I doubt it would ring up.

You're right. Target would have it street date-locked at the register. Most major retailers would have it hard-locked at the register like that.

The Final Fantasy Elixir Jones Soda (Orange Cream flavor) are down to $1.48 -- they are quite delicious.

I've been watching very limited wrestling lately, but from the YouTube clips I've seen, Rusev's promo work has been fucking priceless (ie. hilarious as Fuck) as of late.
