#14314228 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by Romeo on 15 August 2020 - 01:24 AM

Went in to get some Jerky/Vudu credits and picked these up for $4. Kirby rang up at $3attachicon.gif20200814_105454.jpg

 

 

Finally found a 3 cent gem in the wildattachicon.gif96DEA2B6-2897-4A55-850A-2613A1E4563D.jpeg

 

 

Double holy shit. Yakuza $6 for $1 and Prey for free basically? I feel ripped off at getting it for $5 now! hah

Limited stock for Kiwami 2 near me. Anybody wanna bet it's not there?

 

Here's a fun one...

 

Call a local store looking for Prey PS4. Shows limited stock on brickseek. I ask the rep in electronics to check, a young spunky guy. He comes back a few minutes later and says sorry, no dice. I head to the store later in the day, the two copies were right on the shelf in plain view.




#14310823 TurboGrafx-16 Mini Retro Console (Amazon Exclusive : Pre-orders start July 15th)

Posted by Romeo on 01 August 2020 - 06:04 PM

No, not at all.  It wasn't an unwise bet based on history - but it was a gamble.  There was some indication it wasn't going to be over-produced, with it being retailer exclusive to Amazon, and the public has somewhat soured on Minis over time.  The PS Classic was crap (and the only one I have hacked, the games were that bad) but the Genesis Mini was really top quality with a great game selection and it still hit the discount shelf due to production.  To me it all goes to show the public does want these, as long as they are done well and a good game selection, but they don't need to flood the shelves with them because the NES Classic style demand is not realistic anymore.

 

I also did not have a TG16 back then (I and SNES and Genesis), but I wanted it because they had some games I had wanted to sit down and play but never really had done so.

 

I agree. Don't rush the product to market or you'll piss off consumers. It's the main reason I don't game like I used to. I absolutely will not pay full MSRP for a game to come out, be broken and unfinished, when a year later the "complete edition" comes out fully patched. Screw that nonsense.




#14310684 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Any good two player/co-op clearance board games I should watch for?

 

Photosynthesis for sure. Picked that up recently on clearance. Depending on your locale, it may not get better than 30% off.




#14310054 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by Romeo on 30 July 2020 - 12:18 AM

Went to a Target that instead of using Clearance stickers were using "repackaged" or "online only item" and charging triple what the clearance price is supposed to me. Was able to price match a "repackaged" item though which is surprising considering a few years back I went to another Target and was told I couldn't price match games that had that sticker because "the barcodes are different".

 

If people here aren't familiar, what target often does is when an item doesn't sell at 70%, they generally remove it from the system and sometimes donate it or write it off. I've seen many times though that certain games come back as a re-release or perhaps found from a warehouse, and they slap a generic 'value game' barcode on it for $19.99. They do this with a lot of Lego games such as Jurassic World. I got for $6 years ago, then it came back in the value area with a sticker barcode over the real one. If you take off the fake UPC, it would reveal the last known price when it was last sold.




#14309241 Shenmue 3 with steelbook $19.99 Bestbuy.com (back again)

Posted by Romeo on 27 July 2020 - 11:12 AM

Man games get so cheap so quick now. I bought this for like 45 bucks back when it first came out with a discount I had. If I had waited I could buy the steelbook and all the DLC for cheaper. Oh well. It's a really good game so I'm okay with having played it after waiting 18 years or whatever it was for the game.

I used to love preordering and buying games at launch. The last time I did this now was for AC Odyssey. Nowadays I’ve been burned way too many times playing broken games while paying full price so I just wait six months or so and get the fully working game at half price.

 

It’s a shame how the industry operates today. 




#14308859 YMMV PS4 and Xbox One games are at Dollar Tree for $1!

Posted by Romeo on 25 July 2020 - 03:31 PM

This round seems to only be xbox Madden '16, Madden '17, and Titanfall 2. No PS4 games.

 

On that note, does anyone have a copy of PS4 Shadow of Mordor to trade from the last round?

Posted by Romeo on 23 July 2020 - 01:21 PM

Could always call and ask the store if they put out the movies/games.

Stores near me havent put anything out yet

 

I generally do. The 5 stores near me are all under 5 miles in any direction and usually on my daily routes.

 

As far as asking employees... good luck. From my experience DT employees are 1,000% worse than walmart employees. I've asked DT employees if they have movies out and was told no, when I'm looking right at a table of movies in the store. Other times I've asked if they had games mixed with the movies from last months shipment, was told "no we don't get games here". I drove by and went into that same store 10 minutes later, sure enough I found games and movies on the front 'item of the week' table.

Friday the 24th is when they are supposed to officially put out the new stock but some stores have put it out early. Im waiting til Friday to go out.

 

5/5 of the stores local to me already put everything out last week and over the weekend. Don't wait until this weekend. Zero PS4 games at all stores I visited. Only xbox Madden 16/17 and Titanfall 2.

Posted by Romeo on 15 June 2020 - 02:36 AM

I was not wrong. If you look at my posts, some stores accidentally put out their stock early, but most stores put the stock out two days ago. That's why people who went a few days ago and found nothing are now finding games in their stores. I also put YMMV when I first made the thread, just in case some stores didn't have them. I am sorry that you are having trouble finding them, but if you look at this thread, the majority of the people who have looked have found them

 

 

I wouldn't say accidentally really. I have five stores within fives miles. ALL of them had them out last week on different days. Then this past weekend I traveled out of my local area, calling five stores and stopping by two. Every single store already had the movies out the week prior. Nothing was left besides scraps as of this past Friday 6/12 at any store within 50 miles of my home.

 

I will say thank you very much for the heads up. It seems this time around the PS4 games were 2 per store max and some stores claimed their shipment never even had games in them.

Posted by Romeo on 14 June 2020 - 02:41 PM

Checked a few stores yesterday for the hell of it since I was out of town. Just scraps and DVDs left. OP who stated the movies being put out on 6/12 was unfortunately wrong. Everything was out already prior, the week before even. Unless you were there when they opened the box, you weren't getting any PS4 games.




#14296909 YMMV PS4 and Xbox One games are at Dollar Tree for $1!

Posted by Romeo on 12 June 2020 - 12:35 AM

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the day that these are supposed to be be in stores officially. So, it may be worth it to check again, if you have found nothing at your local stores so far.

 

Every single store I visited or called had put out the movies between last Friday and this Monday. Haven't found a single store who didn't get a shipment yet. I'm still looking for the PS4 Shadow pair of games. I did find War on xbox and picked it up as a gift for someone.

Posted by Romeo on 07 June 2020 - 01:39 PM

This does seem totally random. Visited two stores and spoke to a few others by phone. 3 of the 5 already had the shipment out, two others had no idea of a new shipment of games/movies. For the ones that already put everything out, the games were already raided on Friday. Looking to grab a pair of PS4 Shadow games.

NYC.

 

Understandable. I’m not too far from NYC, just over the border in PA. Thankfully my direct area isn’t bad though I constantly see NJ and NY license plates all around me. 




#14282403 Reduced Price Guide Thread XIV (FAQ in 2nd Post)

Posted by Romeo on 20 April 2020 - 03:38 PM

thats why u dont sell or trade stuff to new users.

 

 

Same for me, I’ve never traded with omni666 before. You can leave feedback for anyone at any time. It’s a pretty imbecilic comment to make without doing any research. 

 

 

I have never sold anything to anyone through CAG, I think it was just IATCG wreaking his usual havoc

 

 

Same here. Wouldn’t have noticed it if you didn’t post about it here. 

 

Hopefully the mods fix it ASAP. Always had perfect feedback here. I reported it to a couple of the super mods. The profile has already been banned though the feedback is still attached so far.
