I don't know about CompUSA, but if I remember rightly Circuit City was carried out by a third party. Usually when a company, not always but usually, does their own close outs, their clearance prices are legit. If you see actual draw down prices for high ticket items like bikes and video game consoles, that'll be a pretty good indicator that the clearance prices you see are on the up and up.
