This lines up with what K-Mart Gamer said on Facebook -- coupons are still on the hardware, but now they've changed their tune on the software. Before, it was "when vendor funding refreshes" for game coupons, now they are saying "We don't have an answer on when they'll be back".

I wouldn't expect any worthwhile deals from them for a long time.

This. I'm hoping whoever steps in eventually will right the ship but I just don't see it happening anytime soon. Tough to see it all play out.

Hey Josh, would you happen to know Brandon in corporate?

I know a couple of Brandon's, any area in particular.

Wow it is promising that they are still having decent promotions like this.

I'd be interested in buying ME2 for PS3 for the $10 coupon if I knew what was planned for ME3

We'll still have the circular, I just don't think decent overcomes or lackluster consumer experience. Had to heat up the deals to compel the community to even make the trip :)

Quite a shame the "coupon train" has ended. The only thing I can be happy about is the impact on my wallet, and I say that because I probably spent more money in that 1 year of coupon/new release deals than I have in the previous 3 years of gaming combined.

I can only hope Josh will get the support he needs to get it up and running again, because it was easily the sweetest deal in town. As it stands now however, I've got no reason to even go into Kmart anymore with a Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Gamestop and virtually every other competitor closer and typically similar if not better on all other goods... the games definitely got me to spend far more money in Kmart than I've ever done in the past, as well as recommend them to friends.

If it truly is to be the end, and if Josh happens to see this, thanks for what you did while you did it, it was one helluva ride, and I'll be gaming for practically another year on the games from the coupon train alone. The game sales industry definitely lost a hidden gem.

Really appreciate it, probably only lasted as long as it did because of all of your support. Hopefully it comes back because of it.

Um i havent been here in a while. What happened to the classic kmart threads by Josh which was SHC_gamer i believe?

Kind of limbo at the moment, making some big decisions for myself in the next few weeks.
