New copies of Tony Hawk Ride appear at Goodwill Store

Tony Hawk Ride GoodwillIt’s not uncommon for games to show up at Goodwill Stores, but the games are usually opened, used or over four months old. Surprisingly, Tony Hawk Ride has defied the odds and showed up, brand new with skateboard peripheral, at a Goodwill Store in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Most expensive items are kept in a locked case in the front of the store, by the cash registers, and two unopened copies of the Wii version of Tony Hawk Ride sat on the shelf, each priced at $74.99. The game came out November 17, 2009 and the normal retail price is $119.99, so that’s quite a substantial discount.

When a Goodwill employee was asked about the items, she stated that Goodwill often receives donations from retailers like Kohls, Sears, Target and Borders, and the Arlington Heights store just happened to receive the games. I asked to take a look at both boxes, and found that both were sealed and in perfect condition. There weren’t any original price tags on them, so there was no way to determine which store might have donated them.

All Goodwill Stores have a 10-day return policy for electronic merchandise. So if you see some kind of video game console or game, you could get the game and, if it for some reason didn’t work, return it for a full refund.

Other gaming related deals discovered at the Arlington Heights Goodwill included a slew of Atari cartridges priced at 99¢ (if you stop by, check the toy racks and CD and DVD shelves), a $9.99 Sega Genesis with no cords or controllers, a $12.99 PlayStation with no cords or controllers and a $19.99 N64 with, you guessed it, no cords or controllers.
