Target’s First Week of Liquidation

For those who don’t know, Target began their liquidation sale this week. Video games are a measly 10% off. It’s better than nothing but those who were hoping for deeper discounts will have to cross their fingers and hope the discounts get bigger as stores near their closing dates.

Then again, when you have lineups like this for an “up to 30% off” sale, what incentive does Target have to cut deeper?

Enjoy your week, everyone!

This week’s image is from Transistor. ‘Twas one of my favorites from 2014 and it’ll be free in February for PlayStation Plus members. Beautiful game.

Grid or List?

You can now switch between the traditional grid view to a list view. Both have their merits. Obviously you can see more items at once in grid view but list view is friendlier for long text.

Hope you enjoy it!

This week’s image is from the Resident Evil HD Remaster. I’ll pick this up once it hits the right price point. Sounds like the PC version is the way to go for this one.

1 CAD = 0.808156 USD

Will we begin to see $79.99 games? Are you worried?

It won’t affect me too much; I rarely pay over $40 for games. All this means for me is that I’ll be waiting a tad longer for games to come down in price.

This week’s image is from Valiant Hearts: The Great War. I haven’t had the chance to check it out but I have every intention to pick this up some time this year.

Goodbye Target & Sony Store

If you haven’t heard, news broke yesterday that both Target and Sony Store will be exiting the Canadian retail market.

Some cities just got their Target stores and now it’s gone. I’ve only visited them once for the currency card sale last year. I also applied for a Target Red card and have yet to use it. I was really hoping Target was going to show Walmart how to run an online and retail presence at the same time. But alas, they ended up being a cleaner Zellers.

The Battle of Walmart: Website vs Store

Please be advised that Walmart’s deals aren’t always available online. Fortunately you can check your local store’s stock from the product page.

Enjoy your weekend and leave a comment if you have any questions or concerns.

Week of Jan. 2 – 8 Round-up

posted in: News | 2

Hello and welcome to our new weekly round-ups! These round-ups will coincide with the weekly flyer cycle.

This week’s deals are remnants of Boxing Week and thus unspectacular. Hopefully there are better deals next week but I’m not holding my breath!

If you have any comments, please leave them below.

Notice Some Changes?

If you haven’t been here since Boxing Day, you’ll notice this site filled out a bit. During the course of the fit up, the decision was made to stop forcing links to open in new windows/tabs.

There were two reasons for this:

  1. It was rude of us to assume that people wanted this and it’s apparently a web design no-no. We didn’t have a good reason not to abide by conventions.
  2. The website was misbehaving on mobile and in order to maintain a consistent user experience, we had to stop links from opening in new tabs.

That’s it. Nothing too fancy. Hope everyone enjoys the site!

About the Banner

This week’s banner is from Dragon Age: Inquisition. None of us here at GameDealsCanada played it yet but we hear it’s quite good.

Welcome to GameDealsCanada.com

Seasons greetings and welcome to our new home!

This site was created with the intention of hosting Black Friday and Boxing Day round-ups. The aim was to create a round-up page where deal seekers can find the deals they care about. We created a page that gives people the ability to sort and filter deals down to price points, stores, and platforms that are relevant to them.

We essentially created a round-up page that we’ve always wanted.

 

Filter the way you want

Simply sorting by store, price, or platform wasn’t enough for us. We wanted to create something that would allow our users to select multiple stores and multiple platforms.

If you own a PlayStation 4 and an Xbox One but only live near a FutureShop and EB Games, you can enter that criteria and create a deals page curated just for you.

 

See it. Buy it.

It’s easy to miss out on what interests you in a wall of text. With the new round-up page, we’ve incorporated box art images for every deal to help users quickly identify deals of interest. For desktop users, we’ll also reveal the store logo when you mouse over a deal.

When possible, we’ve included direct links (that will open in a new window) to products. If the specific retailer doesn’t have an online store, we’ve included links to their official webpage where you can find their flyer.

 

Just the beginning

This is just the beginning. We’re happy with what we’ve created so far but we’re open to suggestions and will evolve the page as it makes sense. In the meantime, we hope you find this page useful.
