Great Prices! Strange Places!

I have noticed lately finding some really good games at low prices in places you would not expect.

Please post any others you run across.

Best Buy:

Freekstyle Game Cube $19.99 -$5 coupon made it $15 for a really good game that is selling for $50 everywhere else.


BlockBuster Video:
Brand New These were not "pre-played".

X-Box Need For Speed 2: Hot Pursuit $29.99
Game Cube Animal Crossing $29.99
Game Cube NFL 2K3 $29.99

Did not want to post this in the Hot Deals forum as many of us dont care about free pantyhose or detergent, and dont frequent that page.

Not a strange place, but still good prices!

I get a coupon magazine every month in the Philly region called the Clipper. This is like a Val-pak of coupons in magazine form. Anyways, in it was a coupon for 20% off a pre-owned game at Electronic Boutique.

Also EB has a special going on now, 10% off 2 p-o games, 15% off 3, and 20% off 4. I've never had problems with these. $50 games are usually priced at $45, so you could get 4 pre-owned games for $180 - 20%, or $144, or $36 a game! Not too bad!

I called Blockbuster this morning and the guy looked up Animal Crossing on the computer and sure enough he said it was $49.99. I was 99% sure he would say that, as in the past it seems it's always a certain Blockbuster that has a cheaper price on a specific item.

Once again, not a deal at Blockbuster, but a pricing error at a particular one.

Last was cruising thru Media Play while waiting for a friend to show. I was in no hurry so I was checking out the PS2 games and I found a Frequency with a 9.99 sticker. It seemed that each and every copy they had was priced something different. There must of been 5 different prices. So I told my wife I had to see if they would sell it to me for the 9.99 price.

I got to the register told the clerk what the deal was and she said there was no way it was 9.99. She scanned it and there is was on the screen. 9.99

I slammed my credit card down so fast it made her head spin. And as I was leaving another clerk was going over to fix the rest of them. It was a good price even if it was a mistake. Plus I didn't want to start my own thread.

It was $10 at Best Buy a few weeks back, probably not a misprice.

Frequency is available as a heavy discount title at lots of places. I even saw a Target clearancing them for $6.99. If you find it pre-played at Blockbuster it is in the computer as $6.99 nationwide.

I've been searching for a deal on it and have seen nothing better than 28.00 and change round here. The that was one of the many prices at Media Play.

I found Roller Coaster Tycoon2 at Target the other day for $22.88. By far the cheapest price I've seen. Too bad I had already picked it up at Best Buy for $25. Oh well.

Thanks for the heads up on Freekstyle. Finally found the $5 off coupon inside the Netflix case and picked up the Gamecube version for $14.99.

Great deal.
