UPDATE: Target Price Drop


Word from Forumite Jabba The Slug is that he spotted $6.24 basic figures at his local Target recently. While not the $6.00 we're seeing at Wal-Mart, it's a pretty decent decrease and may be time to check your local Target store if this is nationwide!

UPDATE: It appears the $6.24 price is a regional thing, and many of you are seeing $6.04, or like me you're seeing $6.64. Prices all over the place, so your mileage and prices will vary on this one.
