    Since I'm closer to Kmart I'll be heading there 1st to see if I can get them + get - Kmart - Lowest Price Guarantee ( TIP )

    Lowest Price Guarantee.

    If you find a cheaper price on the same product in stock at another store, when you buy it from us, we'll match the price & give you 10% off the difference.

    boom blox is actually quite fun if your not into complex storyline etc!

    ...well ....i like it :)
  • andrewr2008/12/20 10:54:03
    Yeah I can highly recommend Boom Blox, it's great value under $50, at under $15 it's a steal.
  • terlalupedas2008/12/20 11:26:59
    How does Kmart's Lowest Price Garuntee work? Do I purchase the item full price, then go to Custermer Service to get money refunded? Or do I let the cashier know, and they can do it there?
  • craftykiwi2008/12/20 11:42:35
    You either go to the cashier at the Sound & Vision area or Checkout when you're about to pay and tell them or show them the brochure/print out with reduced price and store and sometimes that's all you need to do for them to work out the new price.
    Other times they may ring the other store to check whether it's in stock. You just need to make sure to mention about getting 10% off the difference so you get that as well as the matched price.
  • ntowill2008/12/20 13:16:01
    The other thing you need to know about the price guarantee is that they only do it on individual products not package deals. So if BigW for example bundle a Wii with 2 games they won't match/beat that price.

    Well I must be really lucky with my Kmart as I've got the Big W bundles with the Lowest Price Guarantee last week :xmas2:

    I just take the brochure/print out to the Sound & Vision area ;)

    I tried that about a month ago and that's what they told me. Still worth a try anyway. :p

    The reviews of Bloom Blox say it's a good game and very addictive. With The Sims they say it's a reasonable game - not fantastic but not bad either. I'd say it's still excellent value for $15. You can read some reviews here (assuming I'm allowed to post a link?):

    [COLOR=DarkOrchid]Thanks for that!

    Looks like Boom Blox it is then! :xmas9:[/COLOR]

    Im picking these up tomorrow morning (fingers crossed they have them at my local target) then heading over to JB Hifi to trade them in for Sonic Unleashed or Wii music..ends up costing $30 + a bit of driving time to get a game worth $80...

    Prince Caspian is also available tomorrow for $14.95 as well...

    For people that didn't know, JB Hifi have a deal until Christmas eve that you can trade 2 games for either Shaun White Snowboarding, Animal Crossing, Disaster: Day of Crisis, Wii Music, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party or Sonic Unleashed.

    Target does have The Chronicles Of Narnia Prince Caspian on sale tomorrow as well for $14.95 (last page of catalogue). They have them for Wii, PS2 or DS. Not sure how good a game it is, but it's supposedly $65 off the wii game ($45 off the game for PS2 or DS consoles).

  • craftykiwi2008/12/22 06:12:12
    The last Narnia game was really hard and we just gave up before we were even half way through, so this would have to be a big improvement before I'd consider buying it.
  • craftykiwi2008/12/22 08:45:47
    Wouldn't even bother trying Kmart or EB Games for a price match. None near me seemed to have the Boom Blox in stock, so just went to Target to save all the mucking around. Expected a queue but I was the only one at the door when they opened. Looks like no one saw their catalogues over the weekend or are Buckscoopers. Plenty there at 8am but guess shouldn't leave it too late.
  • ntowill2008/12/22 09:49:31
    In Sydney, the Chatswood store has plenty of Boom Blox games, but no My Sims or Prince Caspian. My wife went to Warringah Mall and they had lots of Boom Blox and My Sims but she couldn't find any Price Narnia there either.

    No big rush for them either, but may all go with the lunch time shoppers so if you want them I'd still get in early as craftykiwi said. :prop:
  • ntsha222008/12/22 10:19:23
    target at Pagewood only had my sims in stock, I was there at 8am this morning..wanted to grab a few copies of boom blox :(
  • LisaMaree2008/12/22 11:53:13
    We only have target country :(

    For those that were there first thing and they had none of the advertised product in stock, you can make a complain to someone (I think the ACC), as the store should have reasonable quantities of sale items available.

    Someone else may know more about this, I am sleep deprived.

    I'm so furious again withTarget Brookside, once again they have proven to be hopeless when it comes to specials.

    Hubby and I plus one other person were first in line to grab these games only to over hear the staff member telling the other staff member whom was standing right next to us that all the Boom Box games were being held for staff.. Yep typical! :mad:

    I guess being a smart cookie when at Target yesterday paid off, I placed My Sims & Boom Box in the DVD section :p Gotta be one step ahead of them, I loved the looked on the staff member face :xmas3:

    To make me even more furious they didn't even have the Kodak camera deal which was on special from today, Gee it was only 8.05 am and they only had 5 copies of My Sims and Price Narnia on the self.

    Good luck I think some are going to need it :xmas9:
  • queenshrew2008/12/22 12:19:03
    The Target I went to was the same.

    The guy told me they had the games but can't find the boxes.

    So there we went..hunting ALL over for them.

    Finally found a Boom Blox game in a pile of junk! There's another copy somewhere (they had the game in their drawers) but the box has mysteriously evaporised!

    One of the ladies there told me they had the MySims game but she couldn't find the box. So we hunted for awhile and she found it for me (which was nice). After all that..we came straight home cos we were too tired from all the rummaging with a 2 year old in tow!

    I had exactly the same idea when I was up there yesterday. Had visions of a huge queue and people elbowing there way to get them and thought maybe I should hide one, but didn't. Was told they had them under the counter in the glass cabinet until then so probably wouldn't have found one anyway.

    As it turned out no queue - only me waiting at the door to go in - and plenty of them on the shelf. Guess I could have taken order from the forum but little chance of you getting them in time for Xmas.
  • ntsha222008/12/22 14:53:05
    It's ridiculous when they advertise something and don't have it, I complained this morning and was told, they sold out yesterday, when I said that they weren't on special yesterday I was told that there was another sale going on :confused:

    Went to Bondi Junction at around 12ish and they had just recieved their order of boom blox and my sims so grabbed them both. :)

    Mine had the box but no games:rolleyes:
  • kermi2008/12/22 18:03:18
    [COLOR=DarkOrchid]Must have been around 15 of the Boom Blox but could only find 2 of the Sims when I arrived at our Target at about 11am...

    No queue either! :D[/COLOR]
  • melissanj2008/12/22 18:09:17
    mine had sold out :(
  • jinx2008/12/22 20:01:44
    I would have called down the manager and stated what was said, seeing you had witnesses, it's not the first time either. I hate Brookside Target, rude sales assistants they are and I myself have been known to go a day or so ahead of something coming on sale and hiding it LOLOL
