If the bumped value is still on our app, will we be able to get it at the store? Does it depend on the manager?

Very YMMV. More often than not, what shows in the POS is what you will get. Doesn't really matter what shows in the app or if it's saved. You could get lucky though.

The bump is dead. Long live the bump.


All bumped values appear to have just dropped this morning.

#14309704 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by intelligentidiot on 28 July 2020 - 11:58 PM

My Target store stopped accepting returns in March. The one upside to this, is that when I tried to return something online. Not only did they let me keep the product that I was trying to return, but they also gave me all of my money back.

I had similar experience, but was doing a price adjustment back in June. Matching price with Amazon and they said they would give the partial refund, but then said they would give a full refund. Very bizarre, but no complaints here.

Oh interesting. I thought all stores sold them.

I've always been shot down when asking about display models. Found a store once that had 4 gaming laptops on clearance, all with only display model available. Manager said not for sale. May have been at one point or may just depend on manager of dept. or store.

Thanks, I forgot that the B2G2 was still going on. I see that it also continues into next week's ad.

B2g2 goes through 4/19, so it might come back after.

Q4 earnings call just happened, GameStop posted a profit of $21 million compared to a loss of $187 million in Q4 of last year. George Sherman noted an increase in demand due to COVID-19.

No mention of closing 2,000 stores or shutting down completely because of the outbreak. I guess you guys know something he doesn't?

Not 2,000 stores, but they are continuing to close stores in 2020 to "de-densify", but that's old news that has been known.

#14268308 Amazon Trade-In FAQ 6.0

Posted by intelligentidiot on 02 March 2020 - 12:34 PM

Is the Wii u white 8gb console renewed listing easy to get processed? It's $100 on GameStop, and trades in for $133.xx at the moment. I noticed someone a few weeks ago had it canceled for no charging cradle, which worries me. Don't wish to be stuck with a second Wii u.

I sent one in with original box a few months back and it was accepted. The box outlined what should be included, so that probably helped since I did not include the charging cradle since it was not originally included. YMMV

So is that $20 plus $5 bonus if you have it for the Switch?

Correct, plus any bonus for having pro or elite, could be as much as $29.

Ace Combat 7 was $9.99 as well, but now $29.99. Missed that one.

I don't think the store is closing, but particular location seems to want to clear out the Xbox 360 section with almost every title priced at 2/$3. I cleared out a lot of the titles at the store. Worth checking out your local store to see what deals may be had. They also had a number of first part 3ds, wii, and wii u games for $5 or $10.

"Save $20 on pre-owned Playstation 3 & Xbox 360 systems"


Of course this happens exactly one day after I ordered my PS3 on gamestop.com.

This worked out great for me, found a 20GB backward compatible PS3 at local store. Note that the POS did not take $20 off, needed an override for that. Firmware on the system is 2.42, crazy. Used a bunch of reward certs, so only ended up paying about $10.
