More Best Buy penny guide markdowns!

I hit the mother lode at lunch! As usual, your mileage may very...I have 2 stores I visit, one always has guides marked down, the other never marks them down. For a penny each, I got:

The Getaway
Ghost Recon
Def Jam Vendetta
Zelda: A Link to the Past
Dark Cloud 2 (I've been waiting for this one to hit a penny)

Good luck!

Employee's at my Best Buy always seem to snatch these up. However, I'll have to check once again.

My BB's never mark things down to rediculously low prices. Oh well...

I know!

I had a couple of items, so it wasn't that bad, but I've bought them before where I handed the guy 4 pennies. That's kinda embarrasing!

My BB never has these at all...so if any kind soul grabs an extra copy of Zelda or Ghost Recon, I'll make it worth your while.

how do you know if the guide is marked down to a penny? is there a sticker on the guide or the shelf advertising the new price?

I've seen both...but most of the time the guide is stickered at one cent. Also, go around and check the guides they stick behind the actual games.

Copenhagen - send me an e-mail! I may want to part with those!

Usually at my Besy Buys, the guides never show to be a penny. I just occasionally find the ones I am interested in and then have them run a prcie check. If they ring up for a penny, I buy them. Of course new game guides are never a penny but if the game has been out a couple of months, I always price check them.

at the store i used to work at, i bought a bunch of them one time. i got into trouble b/c i was going to give them to my friend who owned a game store. the manager went off the deep end b/c you aren't supposed to buy something w/ a discount and then give it away. i was their best employee at the time, so they let it slide, but from then on, anytime there were markdowns like that, they sent them back to corporate. I ruined it for the customers.

Ran across a better deal than a penny...

The BB I went to just put all the penny guides on a shopping cart, and labeled them as "Free, please take one." Unfortunately, there were only 3 kinds left. So I only grabbed Def Jam Vendatta and Zelda: Ocaria of Time, because I didn't want to appear too greedy. But, you can't beat free!

Anyway, this also means that Zelda: OOT and Tenchu guides have also hit a penny.

Yo, Flash,
By any chance did you pick up an extra Dark Cloud 2 guide? I would love a copy and would of course reimburse your shipping. I started that game, and then it started to kick my a$$ and I could certainly use the help. If not, it's certainly no biggie.
Thanks

I will check, I think they had one copy left.

I should probably just buy them all next time, I'm sure I could get rid of them on here.

Decker,

E-mail me...I picked up an DC2 extra guide! I won't be able to ship until Saturday though. If you have PayPal you can pay me for shipping through there.
