$2 Final Clearance Confirmed Happy Hunting All!


Please be specific when posting noting the store location and exact titles spotted. (Was it the Fluxx/Game of Thrones board game or card game? Dominion base game or Dark Ages?)

Memory is fallible, snap pics. Only takes one false report to send people all across the country on a wild goose chase price checking that game you may have spotted. Plus posted pictures keep the thread visually interesting (and incite fits of envy).

A House Divided
Abalone
Agricola All Creatures Big and Small

Beginning this afternoon I'll start moving items to the Confirmed list based on reports from around the country.

Confirmed clearance items should scan at the sale price regardless of where they are found in the store. It's common for a few items to linger on shelves that should have been placed in the clearance bins. If an item on this list does not scan at the discounted price be sure to post and I will downgrade it to the unconfirmed list below.

Will regularly update this first post with new confirmed clearance items (those with sightings from multiple members) so that you don't have to dig through the thread once it starts sprawling.


Unconfirmed / YMMV Clearance List:

The following are unconfirmed with only isolated or conflicting reports. If one of these scans at a discount without a manual override be sure to post and I'll move it to the confirmed list.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions


- The official B&N policy is to not hold clearance items though many still succeed in placing online reservations using the "Pick Up In Store Near You" feature but YMMV. (your mileage may vary)

- The website will show the full price even if the items are on clearance in store, but you can confirm whether an item is on clearance at a given location by using the "pick up in store" feature and doing a local search by zip code. The results list will show the actual current clearance price.

- If you decide not to purchase a game you reserved take a moment to call the store and cancel the reservation.

- Reserved items will be held for 3 days with the date in your email confirmation. Staff may later see that the items shouldn't be held and cancel the reservation. They will usually call the number you gave when placing the reservation but there have been some reports of cancelled holds without any notification.

- Please don't waste the time of the staff by asking them to scan every single game in the store you're simply wishing would be on sale even though they haven't been reported. Only items on the confirmed list are worth taking off the regular shelves for a price check. Staff are much more likely to take care of you when they don't mark you as one of "those" customers that have been harassing them endlessly over their board game inventory. 

- B&N Membership will grant an additional 10% off sale items

- 15/20% usually stack with sale prices but Kid's Club 30% off coupons often will not but some cashiers may manually override to accept them when presented. (be courteous even if denied please)

- Entirely new titles are not generally added to the nationwide clearance after the sale has begun as all the stores work off a list letting them know which items have been "reset" to the clearance prices system wide. (though that list may vary from store to store)

- If a title appears in stock for your store using the online inventory checker but isn't on the shelves or bins always check with an employee. Some stores have boxes of clearance stock in the back that is used to restock the bins as the sale goes on. There are countless other reasons why a title may show in the inventory and still not be found but many have been rewarded by a helpful employee emerging from the stock room with item in hand. (again, always be courteous rather than demanding)

Recent sales have followed a pattern of
50% off for ~3-5 weeks
75% off for ~1-2 weeks
Then down to $2


As soon as anyone hears dates from staff I will update this first post
accordingly so there’s no need to ask in thread.

Word from a few sources is that 75% is scheduled to begin on Monday October 12th.


For reference here are the dates for a few past sales:
Jun 18th 50% / Jul 25th 75% / Aug 8th $2
Apr 21st 50% / May 13th 75% / May 27th $2
Mon Jun 16th 50% / July 25th 75% / Fri Aug 8th $2
Mon Sep 15th 50% / Mon Oct 6th 75% / Tues Oct 14th $2
Fri Dec 26th 50% / Wed Jan 28th 75% / Thu Feb 5th $2
Mon Apr 6th / Tue Apr 28th 75% / Tue May 27th $2
Mon Jun 22nd / Fri Jul 31st 75% / Fri Aug 14th $2
Mon Sep 14th / Mon Oct. 12th / Tue October 20th $2


A few notes about contributing to the sale thread. Banter, conjecture, joking, gloating, goading, back slapping, ribbing and more are of course welcome but please be respectful of the legions of members these sprawling threads attract. They subscribe specifically to keep up with news on the sale itself. We’re here first and foremost to help one another get a few good deals, let’s keep it civil and friendly. Save the soapboxing for RSP and take any discussion about general B&N policies, staff, business model etc. to it’s dedicated thread in Discussing Retailers.


Happy Hunting!

Re: [ Barnes & Noble ] B&N Fall(ish) Red Dot Clearance Sale Has Begun! 50% Off Confirmed *First Post Updated Daily*
I looked up Munchkin Legends Deluxe and one store near me has it half-price but the other one doesn't.

Edit: A few more I found - Firefly The Game and Mansions of Madness. Like Munchkin Legends Deluxe, it was half-price at one store but not at the other.

Usually I don't see much that I am interested in/already have, but Downfall of Pompeii has been on my wish/buy list for ages. I'll be popping in this evening to check.

these will all be YMMV due to not being stocked at 95% of stores

that one NYC store has an expanded stock and is by no means representative ofnwhat most people will find

I couldn't agree more! I've been a little too active in buying games lately, between the last 2 sales and some other purchases. I think my wife will make me sleep on the games if I buy anymore.

This is beginning to look like a treasure hunt. I would suggest looking at the stores that they are scheduling to close as they may be geting rid of a lot more of their stock.

While it's true most won't find these discounted at their local stores many are not limited to that one NYC location so they're definitely legitimate YMMV titles.

Indeed, and more so than usual. I'm seeing a lot more inconsistency this round than in prior sales. Arkham Horror for example is 50% off at 3 or 4 locations in my area while still full price at over two dozen other locations.

So far the only titles reported that are on sale everywhere I've checked are Pandemic: Contagion, Munchkin Zombies Deluxe and Catan Dice.*

Edit: That list is growing, see first post for updated confirmed list.

Online search in Salt Lake area of Utah "confirms" Catan Dice, Zombie Munchkin Deluxe, Walking Dead Yahtzee, and Elder Sign (at Fort Union only) from list as of time of posting.

Everything else is out of stock. Swear I've seen copies of Contagion though...

EDIT: Arkham Horror is split in the area. Some have it on sale, some do not. All seem to have it.

Doctor Who Yahtzee available, but not on sale. Same with Forbidden Island.

One to Add as YMMV: Firefly Yahtzee appears to be on 50% at 24.97

While it's true most feel Eldritch streamlines and improves on the earlier title, there are plenty of Arkham Horror loyalists out there too. If you feel Eldritch is long though don't even look at Arkham. (it runs even longer)

Staten Island store had nothing, but I'll check back later. Sometimes it takes them awhile to get stuff to the proper shelf there.

And you were able to confirm that these were on sale, how? Were they in the sale-bin or just on the shelf?
