#14118495 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by SaberMatrix on 15 January 2019 - 03:06 PM

Not exactly VG related, but yesterday for some reason the SW Black Series 6' L3-37 scanned at 0.03 at my local walmart. More 3 cent items out there.


Edit: Val is also showing up as 3 cents. UPC: 630509731060

#14110443 Playstation Classic $35.99 Target Cartwheel YMMV

Posted by SaberMatrix on 26 December 2018 - 10:56 PM

I got it to work relatively easily. my store has about 2/3 of their stock not behind glass with spider wraps on it, and I just went to a self checkout, had the woman helping there match the website, and then after she walked away, I scanned cartwheel. Definitely YMMV.

#14073361 Meijer Sales/Clearance Thread

Posted by SaberMatrix on 31 October 2018 - 12:42 PM

Meijer in Colerain Ohio had Steel Black, Wave Blue and Silver Dualshock 4 Controllers on Clearance for $50.


Labo customization kit was clearanced at $2.49


Final Fantasy Royal edition on Xbox One was on sale for $9.99.


Didn't see a thread of anything like it, so figured i'd give it a whirl.


For those who are not sure what Meijer is: It's a retail chain out of Michigan that is similar to Walmart, without the feeling of being a warehouse. They currently operate in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. They are very behind in the online push, so dont expect much to be online.

#13900516 PayPal - $5 off $20 Nintendo purchase

Posted by SaberMatrix on 06 December 2017 - 06:43 PM

did you purchase through nintendo.com, or switch eshop? Also, did you have any existing balance? If it's less than $20 would you still get the discount?

I got it working. I got 20 in currency, and it charged me 15 and discounted the 5.

I managed to grab a ThinkGeek Mass Effect Andromeda shirt for 7.48, and 2 Playstation themed shirts for like 3.50 today. A lot of the gaming merch went on clearance. Almost caved on that Winter Forces controller as a PC controller, but decided against it.

#13820549 GameStop Ad 8/30-9/5

Posted by SaberMatrix on 30 August 2017 - 04:00 PM

I called my GS about my Destiny 2 Digital Deluxe preorder. The guy said if i came in Sept 5th at 9pm I would be able to get my game code. As for the Cayde 9 figure he said they ran out but the website says you get it when you put up your game. So I'm confused about the figure.

Every store is indeed receiving a large number of more cayde figures. my local store received a full box of 100 yesterday with a small number of more coming in another shipment in the next few days.

#13801405 Metroid Limited Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL *SYSTEM* -- PRE ORDER

Posted by SaberMatrix on 09 August 2017 - 04:49 PM

Has anyone been able to preorder instore at GS today?

Yes, I did. 25 dollar minimum deposit. Each store has limited allotment.

The store I shop at told me they are only getting 3 systems.

My store got 4 allotted.




To anyone who's on the fence: Nintendo doesn't ever make a ton of the Special Edition systems, never any restocks. If you want one, I heavily suggest preordering them.


99% of the time, Gamestops that do not fill their preorder allotment, will not receive extras to fill their allotment. My store had 4 pikachu systems alloted in February, only 1 preorder, and then 1 showed up. My preorder. 5-10 people asked that day according to the manager.

#13730538 Anti-Deal: Amazon Prime no longer applies to toys to life and CEs

Posted by SaberMatrix on 03 June 2017 - 10:03 PM

Too many damaged items and returns. The people buying these items expect minty conditions on receipt- Amazon can't deliver that and returns are killing them. Blame the shipping companies- they damage the boxes and raise prices often. Amazon is passing it on.

Never have I had a damaged item show up in a damaged box. Every single time the box has been pristine and the item has been destroyed. On top of that the box is most of the time, much too large for the item with literally no packing filler. One time I had an entire amiibo order puzzled into a box that the person who packed the box purposefully damaged them to make them fit. Every time i've had damaged product its been Amazon that has been the damager or they shipped me damaged product they received.

I would pre-order Cars 3 on Wii U as well if that's any indication of it being rare soon.

Try Darksiders Warmastered Edition. Came out today, NO big box US retailer that I saw is even listing it on their site except on Amazon and its already backordered.

#13716511 Target Clearance Thread XXII

Posted by SaberMatrix on 16 May 2017 - 01:43 PM

Not game related, but Target has further clearanced those sweet Zelda Breath of the Wild shirts. Some stores at 9 dollars, some down to 6.48. Most stores never put them out, so they have a full 6. Sizes are all under one DPCI, and I have called 2 stores and both dont seem to realize they might still be in the back, and give me the excuse that they really stop keeping track of things when they go clearance...


DPCI: 207-04-1536

Well AWD strikes again.


Picked up Riviera: The Promised Land for GBA, and it arrived today, and its obviously fake. Rated wrong, wrong color, and the insides and outsides look fake as well.


*Sigh...* back it goes.

Alan Wake, not Quantum Break


Nice rhyming though

I think he meant the download code inside the XB1 copy when you buy it new?

I give up



This is literally my local Wal-Mart. A couple of them around me are just this awful with Clearance.

#13682549 Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes (3DS) - $14.97 NEW at Gamestop

Posted by SaberMatrix on 05 April 2017 - 02:52 PM

Price match bestbuy. Just call and give them the sku or show them on your phone in store.




Dont give lamestop your money. BB youll get a actual new and sealed copy, and the points for the much better rewards points instead of lamestops shit points. And you wont feed the giant shit machine that lamestop is.

Someone's opinion doesn't mean everyone should do that. I have no issue with Gamestop in my area. Most of the copies GS stores have (in my area at least) are still sealed entirely. Your response is entirely opinion and biased and salty.
