Pouring one out for lost deal stores

06 November 2020 - 07:54 PM

Well, it's the end of another console generation.  XBone and PS4 are being replaced by a new generation, and their games will slowly get clearanced out and deals will be posted on this site.  It reminds me of previous generation clearances and that the best deals were all at stores that no longer exist:

 

Toys R Us

Blockbuster

Gamecrazy

Circuit City

Kmart

Sears

 

We've picked up a couple new chains that occasionally have game deals like Five Below and Dollar Tree, but for the most part, less chain stores in this country mean less deals.  Less competition means higher prices.

 

Of course, the slow march to digital games over physical makes this less of an issue.

 

Thinking about deals that used to be during the console revamp just made me nostalgic and a little sad about the loss of these stores, so let's pour one out to deal havens of days past.


CheapyD, ever consider creating a generic deal site

Fatwallet is gone, SlickDeals suck, and there are no competitors out there.  I need help finding non-gaming deals and somewhere to post the non-gaming deals I find.  The non-gaming sub-forums here don't really get much activity.  Ever consider creating a generic deal site?  There seems to be a need out there for a site with an actual community.
