#14527891 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Posted by Reira on 06 April 2023 - 03:23 AM

PS5 GoW Bundles - $407.20 for acceptable condition. Ordered 1, 2 left at time of posting. Hoping code is included so I can sell/trade it to lower the cost. I passed on the $400 PS5 bundles, but this was too tempting.

Got mine in today. Came in taped up original box, but missing inner box holding accessories. Accessories were wrapped up nicely in like a Ziploc bag. Small scratch on the front but otherwise looks good. Instead of a GoW download code, got a sealed physical copy with case in Spanish. So far, so good.

#14511947 Official Collector's Edition Compilation XII - 2021

Oh, man. I was so excited to hear the FF Pixel Remasters were getting a physical release, then i was disappointed it was a SE Store exclusive. Then saw the pricing and my eyes just about popped out of my head. Plus I cannot believe they're like, well, we ain't translating and printing another book, but s'right, just keep the same price. I'm not dishing out $300 on this set, let alone just before Christmas. Even the standard at $100 is rather daunting thanks to the outrageous shipping charges. Rooting for some region to get their own physical releases, even if they're in 1-3 and 4-6 sets.

Joining the AI Somnium Files Nirvana GameStop cancellation club. Also had ordered a copy on Amazon on originally when it was first announced which was cancelled.

Same, and that was my replacement order after my first one on Amazon also got cancelled. Did they drastically cut back on the print run for this or something? Seems like nowhere is actually able to fulfill orders for the thing.

Could be, especially with rising costs they could be deciding it's not worth making all the preordered copies. Could also just be difficulty in getting them manufactured and shipped in time and stores are canceling because it's easier than having to deal with open orders.


I'm hoping this will be like Shin Megami Tensei V's LE where it was hard to preorder and ones who did got canceled, but then months later it was sitting in stock and even went on sale. Or it could be Ni no Kuni Wizard's edition all over again.


I also just heard about Amazon having preorders for Nirvana on the 16th. So again, hoping copies will drift in, although this whole thing is so irritating. Hopefully not just scalpers and bots end up with shipments.

#14461510 Target Buy 2 Get 1 FREE video games, movies, books and board games 2/6 - 2/12

See Amazon has started their B2G1F. Few Switch titles like Mario Golf, Skyward Sword, Pokemon Sword, and AC are $50, taking them down to $33+tax. I'm only interested in Mario Golf though for about $36 with tax. Don't suppose anyone interested in splitting a set? (Can only order 2 Mario Golfs FYI.) Don't feel like messing with Target pricematching and then finding others at the $50 mark.

#14438882 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by Reira on 19 November 2021 - 01:56 PM

What state are you in? I know some CAGers are afraid of hoarders and flippers, though knowing at least the state could help with searching for new game drops.

Michigan. From my testing on Brickseek, the store in Jackson, MI seems to be doing many of the same deals or better. Zip there is 49202. Intergrade is showing up as only $10 there and with 3-4 in stock!

Posted by Reira on 18 November 2021 - 11:53 PM

Today, I got a few sports games for $1 (Nascar Heat 4 & RBI20 Baseball for XB1, Fifa21 & Madden 21 for Series X), Yakuza Like a Dragon Steelbook Series X for $3. But the big scores were Neo The World Ends WIth You PS4 for $10 and FFVII Remake Intergrade for $20.


Other titles marked down included Scarlet Nexus for $20, Predator Hunting Grounds for $5, and Monster Jam Steel Titans 2 for $9. Puyo Puyo Tetris for XB1/SX and Devil May Cry 5 I think were also fairly cheap. Kingdom Hearts All-in-One dropped to $10 at this store but was gone by the time I arrived.


BS for Intergrade and some others don't seem to work anymore though unless store has started marking them down. Like for that one may be pulling for web orders or to add for some upcoming sale.

#13996808 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by Reira on 19 May 2018 - 03:19 AM

GCU ending, no more physical Vita cards in the West, Steam pulling adult games... this week is like anti-E3 where gamers get disappointed instead of hyped.

I chatted with CS, and after being transferred a couple of times, I was assured I would get the 20% on all of my previous preorders. Went through every game just to be sure and was told it would be covered under Preorder Price Guarantee. I have emailed myself the transcript to be safe. I could reorder most, but some have previous promotions while others like Zero Time Dilemma Watch are OOS. But the 20% still shows up, so I should get it.


So if you have any existing preorders you don't want to modify, just chat with CS and get a record of what they tell you.

Gone. Thanks for all the interest!

#12704608 YMMV eBay matching selling price of video game and consoles

Posted by Reira on 24 May 2015 - 03:07 AM

For those worrying about the coupon, probably the best use for the $100 coupon is an ebay gift card. That way, you can "extend" the coupon's expiration and not worry about losing the full value.


I got the offer. Probably going to sell some games, although I was thinking of selling my 3DS XL and basically getting a free N3DS upgrade after the $100 bonus. But I just don't think the upgrade is necessary...

#12440491 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (X360) $40.99 @ Target

Posted by Reira on 25 January 2015 - 01:32 AM

Preordered just in case.


Note that you can combine this with a $5 off $50 coupon. (Just google for link, no coupon code necessary.) I was getting frustrated since it would keep sending me in a loop with other stuff, but I just placed an order with 2 copies. Came to $77.52 with tax and redcard discount for 2 copies. Worse case, return to store or trade in if both copies actually ship.


EDIT: Also submitted for Amazon pricematch. They didn't with Walmart, but worth a try.

#11254386 Kohls.com blackfriday begins Tues extra 15% off code plus Kohls Cash = cheap...

Posted by Reira on 19 November 2013 - 03:49 AM

I wonder what color system this will be ? I don't shop at Kohls much, but is Kohls cash basically like store credit or giftcards to use for store merchandise ?


Kohl's cash is good for a certain period of time. So you can't use it right away. Anything earned from the 26th to the 1st will be redeemable from 12/2 to the 9th I believe. It is applied before any % off discounts. If you earned $40 in KC, for instance, and pick up $50 in merchandise when you go to redeem it, you will pay $10 OOP, but if you have a 15% coupon, you'll get 15% off the remaining $10. You also have a $2 leeway. So you spend $48/98/148/etc., you will still earn KC. You can buy anything but gift cards and Kohl's Cares charity items and can be used online or instore. It arrives in a separate email from your order about 1-2 days afterward.


If you return merchandise that drops you below the threshold (say, spent $100, earned $30 KC and return $15 item), you will lose the corresponding amount of Kohl's Cash. (Normally it's $10, but for BF, you earn $15). So that $15 item you returned costs you $15 in Kohl's Cash, but you will still have $15 from spending $50. So in this example, it's almost stupid to return that item. You can exchange it for an item of equal retail value and keep your Kohl's Cash.


Really neat to see Kohl's carry more electronics.
