I just ordered another round today, the code worked and I got the promo figure added in this time (didn't happen last time).  I got IG-88 which was a very cool and unexpected surprise for sure.

I just tried to order a couple Darktroopers, and the code wasn't working for me.   :-\

I used it last night, code worked...  However, my ship notice was telling me some stuff did NOT ship...  I gotta check it and see what I'm getting and what I"m not.  The way I was reading it (quickly) before I left was that NOTHING shipped, yet I got a shipping notice... 

If my order's cancelled, I'm raising hell this time.

Speaking of this kinda **** by the way...

I was at K-Mart to check out the sale.  The sale explicitly states "All SW Basic SW figures $5.99"...  There's no distinction in collections or anything.  There IS a picture of loose Saga figures, however the add's wording is what binds the retailer to the deal.

So anyway, I go in...  Saga and 30AC are not the same price.  30AC got a price hike to about $7.60 or so around me.  I found a bent up McBacca, a Tatooine LUke, and a Stormtrooper...  I go to the register and am told they're $6.92, almost a full dollar more than the sales ad, so I'm not pleased.  They're still ringing up on sale, but not on the sale price advertised.

I usually don't bug management, but this time I was annoyed, so I pointed it out to the clerk...  She said, "I am sorry but I refuse to give you the discount you want.  The ad does not apply to these figures, it must apply to something else, as these are ringing up on sale sir, as you can see, and you should be happy with that price I would think".

Now I'm pissed off...  So I told her to get her manager on duty because this is false advertising...  She sent me to customer service, so I wander over and showed them everything...  The CS lady was real nice, and was being real pleasant.  As soon as I got there, the manager was on her way over by chance, and she caved on the price adjustment immediately.  I explained to her theyr'e all "basic Star Wars figures", and that the advertised price was what I wanted them for. 

She didn't really argue but was clearly annoyed.  The CS lady was much nicer as she adjusted the price for me and I left, but regardless I was annoyed.  This is the type of **** that is the direct reason NOBODY wants to shop at K-Mart.  They piss you off, they try to "get one over on you" at any turn, they're ALWAYS more money...  I try to appreciate K-Mart, and I like the competition, but this type of stuff just drives me nuts I guess.

I got my figures, but I shouldn't have had to fight for this in the first place.  I mean, holy hell the people at WM would read the ad and give you the adjusted price without hesitation, and it's not even their ad!  Why in god's name do you have to fight for the price at the store that's advertising it then?  Just such bull****.

I couldn't sleep so I thought I'd check HTS again.  Still no McSnowtrooper. I did check my order status and both of the orders I placed using the code indicated that they were "expected" to ship today.  The only thing that has an expected ship date out later than today were the 4-LOM figures I ordered.

As things came in and out of stock yesterday, I think I ended up placing 4 orders - and since the shipping was free (due to the code), I didn't mind.  Checking the order status page now, two of them are "partially shipped" and two of them aren't.  I really hope that the code still works, although I'm sure they'll try to pull it out somehow.  I definitely don't want to pay shipping for four different orders, so in some of those cases I would just as soon cancel them.  It really isn't our fault that they still had the code working, and heck, with the number of orders they must have had yesterday (just from here alone, it looks like things must have been moving pretty well), you would think they could just honor anything that was still going through with the code.  Then again, we still remember the whole McQuarrie Luke thing, so things might not work out too well.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed though.

Got a few e-mails from Hasbro today.  Two promotions going on.  Free shipping on orders $50 or more and another free SW figure offer with the purchase of $25 or more, good until December 13, or while supplies last.

I got a shipping notice for the first of my two orders - all items in the order shipped.  But I think I got in pretty early in the day.

I've had 2 orders placed yesterday.  One is listed as "partially shipped" and one listed as "not shipped" but both have shipping date listed as 10-12-07.

There's a new code for HasbroToyShop - FTIER7 for $10 off an order of $50 or more. Expires sometime in December I believe.

My one order I made is listed as partially shipped, and lists all figures I ordered as not yet shipped.  Very strange, as it couldn't have shipped, if nothing shipped...  right?  Or am I getting an empty box soon while I wait on the rest of it?

I got the same thing on two of my orders.  Looking at them closer, it looks like the "new" stuff I ordered has a shipping date of 10/24 - and these orders both qualified for the free gift (one Star Wars, one Marvel), which have shipping dates of today.  So I'm wondering if they are considering them partially shipped because of that, if they are shipping the "gifts" seperately, or we're just getting these confirmations now and it will all ship later this month.

Both of my orders are same way.  "Partially Shipped"  with all items listed as "Not Yet Shipped"  Maybe we can arrange a trade of empty shipping boxes?
