I wonder if Gamestop would be stupid enough to do this as well

Why does this thread always devolve into a cesspool

My store had just about every high TIV Switch game in stock even by 6PM. Feels good man.

What is MTX Ridden?  I'm renting the game and it's pretty underwhelming...lots of glitches when playing the CPU but still ok for tournament or online head to head play.

#14176942 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by Adhiman on 12 June 2019 - 05:23 AM

My nearest Walmart shows tons of inventory on Brickseek for quite a bit of the good stuff posted here, but their actual clearance section is a tiny corner of the electronics department and nothing of note is ever there, or anywhere else in the store for that matter.


Yeah I really envy some of the Walmarts near you guys. My Walmart has literally a single end cap for clearance. There’s first generation iPad covers and micro USB adapters and that’s pretty much it.

That assumes they didn't nuke that value too. Complete edition is 3 base now instead of 5. This puts the standard edition at higher than the complete. Can you verify this value in store?


Im about to head out for the day. Will check.

Does anyone know if the complete edition counts as a separate SKU in terms of trade bans? I just happen to own a copy of the complete edition that I want to trade.

If you reached your limit on Evolve/Homefront/KZ, Horizon isnt bad. 

 

Cost: $6.39

Trade: $9.80

 

Not 4 for $10 eligible but not bad either.

I would try to sell the Spiderman pro on offer up or eBay as it's fairly sought after.

I almost feel your Spiderman PS4 is worth more to a collector. Did you try selling outright for $300? People love to collect - I am one of them.
At the end of the day, it's your money. If your satisfied, all that matters.

If $300 is the upper limit I have to wonder if the $50 is worth the hassle. I’ll post and see. Thanks for the advice guys.

On the other hand, I’m still kinda hurt on trading my Red Mario Odyssey Switch last year for $250. That red color was awesome.


#14104674 Buy 2 Select Videogames get $50 Gift Card at Target

Posted by Adhiman on 16 December 2018 - 02:12 AM

Not sharing deals is against the spirit of having a deal based video game forum, don’t you think? Really dislike that attitude. Not saying it’s ok to go bragging on Twitter or even Slickdeals, but everyone was ignorant at one point.


#14104395 Buy 2 Select Videogames get $50 Gift Card at Target

Posted by Adhiman on 15 December 2018 - 03:02 PM

I forgot to mention this yesterday:

At one of the stores I went to, I got two games that qualified and the cashier scanned the gift card, but not only did he not mention to me, but he actually put it to the side for some reason. I didn’t say anything at first and thought “hey maybe it didn’t ring out correctly” and waited for my receipt to see if it was on there. I get my receipt and the cashier says something like “everything ok?” Lo and behold, the promotion showed up on the receipt. I ask him about it and he gave me the most artificial “oh I must have dropped it!” I’ve ever heard on my life. Very shady behavior.

If you’re looking for a good Christmas gift, a couple Walmart’s had Series 3 GPS+Cellular Apple Watches for $250 yesterday. MSRP is $380, and even the GPS only version is $279 at most places.

Actually it looks like all Series 3 Watches are on clearance.


#14095500 Facebook Deals Thread

My first problem with Daily Steals.  My copy of Let's Go Evee is a Euro game, when they showed the North American.  I requested a return, so we'll see where that goes.


Does it actually matter though? Not dismissing your frustration, but I thought Switch was region free. I guess there could be issues with reselling it.

Spider-Man (PS4) (Must select Latin American packaging) - $30

Also, the Switch for $180 was in stock as recently as 30 minutes ago according to ResetEra. Sold out almost immediately though.


#14093902 Facebook Deals Thread

Posted by Adhiman on 28 November 2018 - 03:35 AM

I thought it might be a good idea to get a thread going. Some of the deals popping up on FB are ridiculous so a centralized place to talk about them would be nice. Didn't want to title it "Daily Steals" since it looks like other companies have been posting stuff for cheap too (Big Dog Retail).

How are these Facebook sellers able to sell things for so cheap?

It looks like Facebook is subsidizing the price of various things in order to get people to start using their marketplace. These aren't "fell off of the truck" goods.

Why should I trust random Facebook sellers?

Facebook themselves will refund you if you don't receive your packages, or if they're not as described. Several people from CAG and Slickdeals who placed order with Daily Steals in particular are reporting that their purchases are new and not pre-owned.

What other discounts are there?

There looks to be another random $10 off offer that applies to your first order. However, not everyone is getting them. Possibly the coupon is Android only but no one can confirm from what I've seen so far.

All shipping is free. Doesn't look like there are any taxes either.

Daily Steals has a 30 day return policy on new/unused items.
Active Deals (not complete list):

Battlefield V (PS4) - $30
Fallout 76 (PS4) - $30 DEAD
Darksiders III (PS4) - $35
Xbox One Controller - $20 DEAD
DualShock 4 - $25 DEAD
Switch Pro Controller - $40 DEAD
Nintendo Switch - $179 DEAD
Hitman 2 (PS4) - $30
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Breeze (Switch) - $30 DEAD
Super Mario Party (Switch) - $35 DEAD
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch) - $40 DEAD
Pokemon Let's Go: Eevee! (Swtich) - $35 DEAD
Just Cause 4 (PS4) - $35 DEAD
Spider-Man (PS4) (Must select Latin American packaging) - $30 BACK TO $60
PS4 in-ear headset - $20

Red Dead Redemption 2 (XO) - $50

NOTE ABOUT DEAD DEALS: It seems that these randomly go in and out of stock. The Switch deal has been down several times but keeps coming back. Pay attention to them and you may get lucky!

This OP is extremely bare bones and is a work in progress. Please feel free to let me know what I should add!

Just figured I'd post. It might be old news to most but while in store this weekend I renewed my membership and they told me Elite was discontinued.


Yeah I think we’ve known since the summer.
