    I swear I read a post somewhere here that Kmart has it's 2007 leaders on clearance for around 15$. I found a Deep Desert Brawl leader at a local Kmart but he rang up at 50$, anyone seen these guys on deep clearance? I'm in florida btw, thanks.

    Is that recent? Sounds interesting. Haven't been to Kmart in a while.

    It's Kmart, if you ask what clearance is, you will get no answer.

    I saw it on here within the past week, so I think so - could be a regional markdown.

    I read the same post too, my local one has Premium Megs but he's not clearanced out & I don't $50 want him. I think Clearance goes store by store so it depends on the the store/department manager at your location, I know WMs are like that at least.

    There is a Kmart up here that still has Deep Desert Brawl on the shelf; several of them too. I didn't bother to check the price to see if it was on clearance though.

    I made the post, and word from the Assistant Manager that I spoke with was that the markdown came down from the buyer but their store was "a bit behind on markdowns". I picked up three Leaders for $12 a piece at that time. It was over a month ago, probably six weeks or so.

    Our K-mart went down when the 4th series of Yu-gi-oh packs came out (hey that is where me, my brothers, and dad got our yu-gi-oh cards). and that k-mart was awesome. My mom used to work there and she rang up Chuck Norris :lol  he bought his son a toy and my mom said he was a very nice guy. There was barely any toys there, but if you wanted to find beyblades, it was the place to go

    Have any of you guys actually approached a Supervisor/Manager and asked them to scan it with their handheld PC? I understand that the items are TICKETED $50 and that they SCAN $50 at the register...but the hard markdown should be in their PC, making it a simple matter of transmitting the markdown to the POS system and properly pricing the items.

    * Update * I was in the area and stopped by the Kmart again, They still had the leader Desert Brawl, I found an older lady with a price checker and after booting it up she tells me.........49.99. :banghead: 

    I mentioned to her that it is old merchandise and should be clearance, and asked if there was any way to check for updated price. She says it's still showing as re-orderable - WTF - No Way! So I go to put it away but hide it somewhere, If its still there in a month and not yet marked down F*ck it, he isn't a must have for me but would be a nice guy to have for 15$.

    Kmart is by far the worst store ( and I mean ALL of them in my area ) and I can't believe they are still in business. High prices, poor service and selection, scary locations, that is what I want in a store :rolleyes2

    it's a shame a customer should have to do all that. If they're on clearance they should be on clearance. Not "on clearance if you know the super special password and talk to the right person."

    But I'd totally buy Megatron for $15. Especially the premium one.
