#14305593 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 12 July 2020 - 07:37 AM

The first one sounds like it might be a dinger. The mark on disk for the second listing sounds questionable about the condition.

I ordered a game a few months ago in Acceptable condition with the description:
Large cosmetic damage on item case. Moderate cosmetic damage on cover art. Item may come repackaged.

It ended up being factory sealed with a small piece of the case missing.

#14292161 Super Monkey Ball heat shrinked wrapped?

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 26 May 2020 - 06:36 PM

A lot of GameCube games mostly 3rd party came heat wrapped, I can't remember the specific game but there was an EA game I bought that had the heat wrap and actually had the EA logo printed on the bottom of the wrap to show it was factory sealed.

It's unfortunate Nintendo didn't use security seals like Microsoft does and how Sony used to.

#14279401 Is this site no longer that active?

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 08 April 2020 - 09:22 PM

I was thinking the same thing about fewer stores.

I would always stop at those stores mentioned plus Circuit City because they all had price drops on clearance games and added new clearance games every few weeks. Now I rarely buy any games from non online stores.

When TRU had 90% off green tag games, I remember going to all 4 stores somewhat in my area or going to at least 6 different Circuit City stores during the $4.99 sale (I can't believe that was almost 16 years ago!) because you knew you would at least find a few games you wanted at each location. Now I can't imagine spending the time for that knowing that I would probably not find anything if you didn't get to the store right away at opening on the first day of the sale/clearance. Also with no smart phones back then, only the people willing to research prices on a site like this would know a game tagged $49.99 was going to ring up for $0.97 at Sears, not like today where anyone can go into a store, and check the price on their phone. I used to take a printed list with me to stores to know what was on clearance.

The only store with really low clearance prices seems to be Walmart clearances but that really seems to vary by region or store. Near me, it's old games like FIFA 16 for $20.

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 12 March 2020 - 10:32 PM

Sometimes repackaged (or As Is) is for items no longer in the system or something they want to manually mark down. They typically don't get reduced in price again, I have seen those items at the same price for 6+ months.

Wow the online selection for Buy 2 Get 1 Free is kind of bad.  Only like 21 titles. 

Hope there's more included in-store.

There are more than that, it just shows the featured games under the buy 2 get 1 free listing page. If you manually search for games, more show up with the offer.


When I type in PS4 game, all 24 games on the first page of the results all qualify for the offer:

I could've sworn Walmart dropped the price of the TMNT cabs to $300? I stopped in one this morning and it was $400. Website showed $400 as well.

Also, I guess finding a Rampage cab is impossible now?

Brickseek shows all stores with TMNT near me at $400, one store actually has it advertised it as a Manager's Special sign above the $399 price sign.

If the Ebay value isn't much more, I'd take the Amazon credit, that way you avoid the risk of dealing with a scammer on Ebay, especially because it's a higher value item.

Amazon will be just charged later. When I ship with UPS and pay for the label (not for trade ins), I put the weight on the label and it pre authorizes that amount and the charge doesn't process until the item is shipped and they see how much the actual weight is.

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 03 January 2020 - 06:52 PM

The most interesting games I ever saw there were Pokemon Mini Handheld systems for $5 and extra game cartridges for $4. That was probably around 12 years ago. I had never seen the system or games for sale in any non online store before and it was a fun impulse buy.

I somewhat remember someone posted that they would buy thousands of dollars worth of games (they owned an independent game store) and get the account banned and then just sign up for a new Best Buy account and pay the $30 to add GCU each time.
