Buy 1 get 1 on select titles at Target

https://www.target.com/pl/1439505...?

I picked up two that I needed (Minecraft and Lego City). Only need about 10 more games from my list at this point.

Target wouldn't sell zelda besides in store pick up an hour away. Family video had good sales. Shovel Knight was 10 bucks so I snagged that.

I only need

Paper Mario Color Splash
Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack
Just Dance 2017
Just Dance 2018
Cars 3

Ugh I wish I could take advantage of that and needed another first party game. Color Splash is the only one where it would be worth it.

I need all those as well, just waiting for price drops.

Visiting some family and the local Walmart had Color Splash on clearance for $20, so grabbed it.  You may want to look at Brickseek and see if any near you have it on clearance (Walmart clearance varies from store to store).  Good luck!

With you on the Just Dance. Need both 2017 and 2018. Off the top of my head the only other game I need is NBA 2K. Keep thinking that game isn’t that rare and I’ll find it for $5 at a Pawn Shop or Yard Sale but hasn’t happened yet.

I had no idea NBA 2K was so expensive until I looked it up. It's under the radar at that price and might pop up cheap, though ive not seen it in person that I can recall.

NBA 2K13 has never been a cheap game. It was hard to find when it was sold at retail.

Yea I was sick of waiting for it so I caved and bought it for around $20 last year. Didn't seem like it was getting any cheaper.

My local Target was willing to price match the online B1G1 deal in store. They also price matched the games that were lower value online.

Keep an eye on your local Family Video locations; a few around here have gone under.    Games were 5.99, then 4.99, then apparently the dumpster.

Nothing really good; they shipped the expensive/popular newish stuff to other stores.

Just Dance 2018 is $27.99 at the moment at Best Buy with the gamer's club discount. Pretty sure that's either the cheapest or tied for the cheapest that it's been at retail yet. Probably still gonna wait though, since it's still available at most/all retailers and it seems like finding stock won't be an issue if waiting for a steeper discount.

Also might want to grab Minecraft Story Mode on the cheap while you can. Got a sealed copy about a year ago for $16 and see that sealed copies have climbed to $40-45ish. Doesn't seem to be in stock at Best Buy anymore but I could've sworn I've seen them very recently in store at Best Buy.

that minecraft jump was just a Christmas anomoly. it is back to its retail price at 29.99 with multiple bin listing on ebay sitting. however that weird little spike before christmas that caused the few sales (that i assume were b.s.) at around $100 has resulted in almost all the lsitings on ebay calling this title "rare." lol before you know it they are going to be calling all 3rd party wii u games "rare."

ive seen just dance 2018 being clearanced at 2 different prices at my local targets. one was 19.99 this was prob a mistake and last week i saw it at 27.99

Be on the look out at your local Gamestop if you need replacement cases for Wii U games. My buddy that works for GS just texted me and told me that tonight they received an email from their district manager to toss the blue Wii U cases and replace them with the standard GS black ones (on used games). Check the dumpsters! He is going to try and snag a few for me, but just a heads up for everyone else.

If anyone needs some, let me know.  I still have about 30+ used ones that I have sitting around in the box and would be willing to part with them for basically nothing other than shipping costs.

Why on earth? What could possibly be the reason to throw away a case, amd replace it with a cheap crappy case of the same size?

GS is truly clueless on why nintendo stuff is expensive and popular collectors items. This is exactly why them selling old games is a mistake. They dont treat anything with respect.

I wonder if Gamestop will ever learn people don't want generic cases and disc only crap. Half the previous gen stuff at my local stores is generic crap. Maybe people aren't buying it because it's full priced for an incomplete game, ya dummies.

It honestly doesn't surprise me. Look at all the PS2 GameCube and Xbox games that they had in the papers sleeves for the longest time and all the DS cases they threw out they threw out just save space. Just recently they were taking new copies of Shantae and ditching the box in the soundtrack and just selling the disc without the case because it took up too much shelf space

But switching out the blue for black cases doesnt save space

Gamestop logicTM. It's like they want to make sure I don't buy anything from them.

And in 5-10 years when wii u stuff is more collectible theyll wonder why their stuff wont move

with the switch releasing endless ports the wii u will be a collectors system. So destroying original cases shows they have no future thought at all. Seriously who holds these jobs that makes these decisions. They are sabatoging their own future with all this throwibg away original cases nonsense

But those generic cases all same Gamestop on them...I bet they see it as a advertising technique.
They aren't smart, I mean they started buying iPhones and selling Cricket service. Makes sense to buy phones you can't resell on the service you offer lol.
