Have you tried the ear buds yet? I wanted that bundle for the buds as well but ended up buying a pair up Skullcandy buds I really like

not really.... I use a set of Galaxy beans... errr, Galaxy Buds Live. I do have the hammerheads paired to my work phone (iPhone), but obviously I do my job too well as no one ever calls me :) Best I can say is that they paired easily and updated fine.

Seems like system is doing that thing again where if a game is binned in the back and it goes on clearance it deletes the bin information  and shows its on the floor even though its still binned in the back.   I went to the same store 2x in 2 days as they did more drops, and luckily one of the good employees was working.  According to him, not only were all the "on floor" clearance games binned in the back still, he was able to find the ones that the 3 other employees claimed were stolen days prior, and the time it took him to find them was less than 2 minutes.    

 

I know the possibility of the games being stolen is high, but considering most stores didn't even bother to put price stickers on all the clearance games, they sure as hell are not going into the system and "re-binning" every game in the backroom so it will show the proper location.

 

The wasted time is annoying, especially when the employee refuses to believe that the Walmart system can be fallible, but I just tell myself its video games and its not like they lost a prescription that I need to live or something. And even moreso, its still better than trying to find these freaking pokemon cards..

Would explain why it took weeks before my store found the razer mobile bundle. Kind of glad too. Would have bought it at $75, but got it for $50 minus the free giftcard I forgot I had, so $25+ tax.

I went to the one on Flagler and 91, and Coral way and 84th. You might have luck in Kendall.

If anyone has an extra copy of Diablo Eternal for Switch and wants to sell one, drop me a PM plz. Thanks

My time in south florida (31 years) and the west kendall location has been a gold mine since the Sega Saturn days (When walmart stopped selling saturn games, that location had all games for $5) And that continued until I left about 10 years ago. Haven't been to that location since. Florida City was always hit or miss and Doral was OK the moment something dropped (I worked 10 minutes away). Now I'm on the other side of the country and I would literally have to leave to check the second a deal pops up. If not, the local game store will go, buy them all out, and resell at MSRP

Well, time to vent a little:

 

My larger clamshell case and steelbook from my 'Streets of Rage 4' limited edition came busted INSIDE the box, and they forgot the extra music sampler. After a couple of week, LRG has told me today they can't replace them. The best they can do is 10% back.

 

Whoopty-fuckin-doo...

only 10%? there is a $25 difference between the regular and classic edition that came with the clamshell... that's like a 35-40% if my math is ok-ish

Hate how not everything went live at the same time.... I tried waiting, but lost darius so I went and ordered in batches as they went live., So I ended up with 4 different orders.  Do not like that I had to do that.
