#14135197 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by Sean Price on 24 February 2019 - 11:09 PM

Very well said. I'm not going to fault any dog in this fight, since I can see arguments for either way. I've been guilty of coming across a super cheap item and getting that 'sales high' and buying a couple extra of em out of excitement, getting caught up in the moment. I think that's only being human. But buying a couple isn't the same as buying 20 of em. Re-sellers are a way of life, as you said. All's fair, in love and discounts. Very rarely have I found it profitable to hoard extra copies to re-sell. Maybe some people are pro's at it but in the end, I usually find it more trouble than it's worth. USUALLY. I've gone the other way in the past coupla years, and focus on trying to post about deals I see instead, on CAG. Nice feeling to help other hardcore gamers out, cause I'd hope someone else here would do the same for me.

 

In general, I've developed a soft spot for Jurai, because I think his heart is in the right place. A shame to see him leave...

THIS, not a reseller but definitly borderline HOARDER, so I try to post deals v/s buy on deals, since I have like 150+ PS3 games in the back catalog thanks to HONESTLY jus strolling into Target and checking out the clearance section..  NOW that my lil on is close to being potty trained I am no longer going to Target weekly for diaper runs and so that along with the previously mentioned 150+ back catalog has tempered my buying..

 

As far as Jurai goes, I am not sure what his deal is...  1st he SHOWBOATS thats he's a coder and has a personal Brickseek in the works, me starting to explore the world of CODING I latch on to the kid and ask him to expand on all that, more from a learning to code angle and kid dogs me HARDCORE..     Also I  Didn't even know him except that I knew "someone" had DRAMA quit the Target thread, and then i found this thread and turns out that somebody is Jurai.. NOW he DRAMA quitting this thread on the same b.s. 

 

Its like he blames US for stock being gone..   Like come on man, the peeps that could be snatching all this stuff up could be employee's or "professional" flippers that have NOTHING TO DO WITH CAG or anyone here..

Or it could just be as simple as Inventory being updated or corrected to reflect more accurately stock on hand.. 

I mean sure we have a couple of a$$ hats here that talk about buying 3+ of cheap items, I mean yeah it happens, but who knows, they might be buying for friends and family, ya never know..

its pretty RAME to make it a big deal and then to "ANNOUNCE" that your punishing us by no longer posting.. 

its like come on man.. its the nature of the beast, win some, lose some.. 

 

BOTTOM LINE IS..

 

Jurai no longer posting is more hurtful than helpful to the community... the ones that do this for the flip hustle will always find a way.. 

The regular dudes like me, that casually check CAG here and there and that would appreciate a good deal are now gonna miss out..

 

so thank you Jurai, thank you for basically helping the ones that anger you the most..

You must have one hell of a beard!

 

I do appreciate the non gaming posts too. I wouldn't have picked up some of the sweet things I've hunted (showing my age here...) like a Shark vacuum for sub under $100 @ 70% off, or a good Vornado fan for 70% off as well.

 

Though, I've noticed a trend that it seems a majority of posts here are now NON gaming. While I do love hunting good deal on housewares and things, I do feel 75% (just a random estimate) of the posts here should NOT be random items. Here and there, sure... lately it's mostly non gaming deals. And that is why this whole topic exists, in the gaming deals section.

haha, Its getting there...  Haven't cut it since LAST JUNE......and even then I had a full beard going already.  I guess I'm halfway to viking level now.. 

Long story short, I retired at the young age of under 40 last year and well jus let that thang grow.  NOT RICH or anything but jus always have had that street hustla mentality so handled all my finances like a G, PAID OFF EVERYTHING in the last 2-3 years and so only debt we have now is the mortgage and only expense is our day to day living.  The wife situation still works part time (2 days a week) and thats mainly to cover our living expenses and twice a year family vacations to Europe, or Asia, we are thinking Japan again(4'th time) since all 3 kiddos (3 under age 8) should now be old enough to remember it. 

 

Anyways be smart my cheap a$$ gamers, pay OFF your smallest debt amount 1st, once that is paid off double the payment to your next smallest debt amount, rinse and repeat, your basically building a snowball that gets bigger and bigger allowing you to tackle the next debt until its all WIPED CLEAN!!!  It so doable, jus keep at it! 

 

 

best of luck all

P.S. NOW yall know why I been on this forum for years and years but never posted much till these last few months, I'd say 75% of my post activity is in the last 2 weeks alone!  So keep the deals coming, gaming and non gaming please!!

#14118936 Assassins Creed Odyssey Free for testing Googles Project Stream!

Posted by Sean Price on 16 January 2019 - 04:55 PM

The problem with it is that you would 1st needed to get accepted by Google. If you didn't get an email about being accepted there is no other way unfortunately, they send you some sort of invitation code that once is used for the first time is tied to your google account. (I tried using my code on another gmail account and didn't work, said it was claimed by someone else). Then that was the first part. The second hardest part (at least for me, or many people) is getting it to launch. I have 50Mbps connection and it didn't pass the connection test, out of billions of tries. One day I managed to pass it and played enough to score the 1h. I suppose it was an issue for me because I am in a rural area of the US. I am sure people in metro or suburban areas didn't have any issues.

too late now, but what do you mean to score the 1h? 

was there something significant tied to that? 

Also maybe it was your browser?  Had similar issues on IE, then switched to Chrome on a macbook air, from 5years ago!

Ran like a dream.. but only played bout 30mins if that..

#14116793 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by Sean Price on 10 January 2019 - 03:46 PM

This. I'm not saying Razer is junk... I just don't care for them that much. For whatever reason Logitech fits my hand and playstyle much better.

 

neither of my Razers broke or failed to work, none have any of my Logitech's either for that matter. I have had a Microsoft mouse die before.. Really the only "name" brand mouse that has failed on me. (years and years ago)

Im not going to go down the list and mention the cheapy mice that we've all used before. they are junk, they break, they quit working etc. 

 

*

 

And for the record, I only saw your post when I responded. If it was up for a while before that, I didn't see it cause that was the first time I opened this thread. I was posting at work so thats why I couldn't remember the model number.

And IMO mice are a personal preference thing, there are some Logitechs I absolutely hate... 

haha, my bad dudes..

I apologize if I came across as confrontational, twas NOT my intent. 

Regardless of what you, or Jimmy, or Timmy said, I was going to purchase these, which I in fact did.  However never having had them and not seeing any real knocks on the major review sites, I was curious about the real world feedback on em, ya smell me? 

i.e. WHat do actual users say about them, because if you go off online reviews(major sites) they have you thinking Razer is one of the elite brands out there for pc gamer peripherals which i didn't think it was...

 

I guess what I'm saying is.. 

 

For the price of one "elite" mouse I can now DEMO 2 "elite" mice and see for myself..

 

Thing is, if my PC GAMER career is anything like my console gamer (150+ back catalog) then I'm sure these will be more than fine.

READ: little to no use and thus will last forever and will seem more than fine when I do actually use em

 

 

thanks again all for the feedback.

 

much appreciated

 

NOW EXCUSE ME, bout to start playing this GONE HOME game everyone keeps talking about.. err back in 2013 or so...

 

 

NOTE: I am typing all this on my Anne Pro, 80% keyboard, ya betta AX somebody!

I bought the universal remote (ver. 2) last week and it actually does power on the PS4 from both off and rest modes. You just have to press the blue PS4 button.


What's your quick review?

Worth it?

#13968896 $15 For 3 Months Of Xbox GOLD LIVE + 3 Months Free(Code emailed later)

Posted by Sean Price on 22 March 2018 - 06:29 PM

Just keep checking that first page several times a day & you'll find it for $35 to $40 within 3 months for sure. I have never paid more than $35 for 1 year of XBL on CAG. If you don't care to look that often, it may be easier to pay a little more for you, but lots of CAGs come through with very reasonable prices if you keep an eye on the forums. Most of them have 300 to 600 feedback since they sell lots when they do come through. I've learned to buy 2 to 3 years, in case I want to help friends out, then just patiently wait until someone else comes through. It is weird that it comes in spurts, though. Best of luck. I'll shoot you a PM with a link if I see any of those CAGs come through in the next month or so.

MOST APPRECIATED  and I really thank you for the well fleshed out response..  

I now have a much better understanding of it all and heck yeah man, I don't mind even paying the $43 for the full year as long as its legit its all better than the $60....

 

thanks man!

#13933454 $15 For 3 Months Of Xbox GOLD LIVE + 3 Months Free(Code emailed later)

Posted by Sean Price on 25 January 2018 - 06:55 PM

To be fair, all of these discounted Gold MS deals are ymmv. The $39.99 12 months was widely available for the last couple of weeks for many people's accounts. Now the $14.99 3 month deal looks to be taking its place. However, that doesn't mean some people won't have both offers on their account. So ymmv should be taken into consideration with all of these types of deals. 

not one post or pic of the $39.99 12 months deal..  NOT ONE. 

However I can see a previous subscriber being offered the $39.99 12month deal on their last month or so..  No doubt thats happening but thats NOT what this deal is about..  

Based on the posts in this thread, and the XBOX page itself this seems to be a deal anyone can get regardless if they have zero months of xbox LIVE Gold or 2-3 years stacked as several here have reported success with either status. 

As far as the ones NOT seeing it, seems more of a user error/issue  i.e. ctrl+F5 to clear browser cache..

Posted by Sean Price on 23 January 2018 - 06:43 PM

Not an xbox head so go easy on me but been watching for xbox Gold Live deals al $40 ps+ from Black Friday..   My Friend sent me to the xbox site for this deal. 

 

I had some problems seeing the deal so i've put together a how to guide to hopefully avoid yall having the same issues. 

 

Play together with Xbox Live Gold

For a limited time only buy 3 Months of Xbox Live Gold and Receive a 3 Month Gold token. Give it to a friend and team up for many hours of play on multiplayer games like PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS*

 

 

1. Go to Xbox.com page

2. Click on BUY Xbox GOLD LIVE( green button)

3. Will take you to page displaying 3 months for $24.99

4. Click the SIGN IN link there(upper right hand corner) and sign in

5. Price goes from $24.99 to $14.99 with the $24.99 having a slash thru it. 

6. enJoi

 

Notes: 

    - this will auto sign you up for auto renewal so make sure to turn that off to avoid recurring charges

    - you will be msg'd the additional 3 month code to your Xbox Message Center by 3/15/18 (what or where is that?) 

 

Also since it sounds like its just an additional code does anyone know if you can just activate it on your own account? 

 

good luck!
