    Nothing this morning. Guy said they take the clearance prices from GameStop then they apply them to their inventory which is wrong cause Folklore was on clearance for $14.98 but if you go to GS its $29.99...weird..

    blue dragon 14.88
    Damn it!! Anyways I just found out where the end cap was with clearance games at Fairfield Target...all this time i been look by the gaming section where it says $29.99 when the f00king end cap with games is by the DVD movies...god I'm a n00b

    I posted this in the duplicate thread... not knowing this one in existed an alternate reality. Although it seems a few may have beat me to it. But-


    You do realize Target clearance does not operate the same way CC does. Prices markdowns and clearance sales are rarely corporate-wide, so quite often specials your target may have- no other target would have. Now I understand, that target often has specials in their ad- but these are different kinds of sales. If you go to slickdeals.com you'll notice that "target clearance" threads are always followed by YMMV (your mileage may vary). While good deals may be had at your target, a very small (or no) percentage of DP'ers would be able to take advantage of this.

    I know a lot of DP'ers are in Jersey from what I seen and spoken to in PM so this could be useful, I seen a lot of cases where games are same on clearance at a few locations. But thanks for the YMMV to the other guy I been dying to know what that was.

    If you think It'll be a hit, then carry on...

    Yep, I used to work for Target at multiple stores and it was different for each store. The warehousing computers will go through the inventory and if a store had over x amount of a certain item, then it would be clearanced.

    There were of course depatment/company wide clearance stuff, but that's more for seasonal items (ie, Easter, Xmas).

    The bit about Target looking at EB/GS's prices and then adjusting theirs is BS.

    One thing to keep in mind is that most stores only have one person (if that) who goes through overnights marking the clearance. The clearance price sticker often isn't the correct price.

    I went by a couple of Austin targets yesterday and came home with some sweet 360 clearance items: "Two Worlds" and "The Simpsons Game" for $12.48, "Viva Pinata: Party Animals" for $7.xx, and a Halo 3 wireless controller with Master Chief figurine for $41.xx. I needed a second controller, and I'd not seen these cleared out anywhere else.

    BTW, there's lots of discussion of Target clearance over at Cheap Ass Gamer -- see http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/...d.php?t=174477 (you'll need to register to view it).

    One the local Targets in town had Viva Pinata (it was I think approx. $14.XX) and they also had Star Wars Battlefront II for the XBOX for about $8.XX or $9.XX.

    Even though they aren't company-wide you can find out which games to keep an eye on as I do by watching the target clearance thread at cheapassgamer.com since if it drops at one target it'll eventually drop at another. I haven't made out great at the targets in my area (nothing close to what I have at K-mart or Shopko where I consistantly find clearance deals) but recently I did pick up a copy of Monter House for gba at $3.75 on clearance there as well as Tony Hawk Proving Ground for wii at $12.50 (ended up going to my sister's boyfriend).

    You have to be wiley to catch the items at the 75% off point before it drops out of the system and gets shipped off to goodwill.

    i once got 2 virtua tennis 3 for the ps3 for $4.96 each and i've always wondered if anyone else got a deal like this.

    all ps3 games should be $5!

    this isnt cheapassgamer.com

    no matter how hard you want this to become a deals forum, its not. why the hell is this in Modern Gaming forum? at the very least it should be B&S or something. i hate seeing this crap pollute the forum. whats next? we make a TRU, Wallmart, Best Buy, Circuit City clearance threads too? should we just copy every thread in cheapassgamer over to here?

    cmon guys... this is annoying. i understand if there is some crazy quirky jap game about to take reserves but this is silly.
