Are you already in the store?  Most likely, yes...  So why not try to get the $4?  I don't see the big deal there.

Considering what gas costs these days, $4's a gallon, so that's a pretty decent reason to get your money back I think.

Is is really worth it to go back and try and get a price adjustment for a few bucks?  I guess to some people it is, but I never have taken the extra time out of my day to try it.

Can I afford an extra $4.00?  Sure.

Do I want to spend one penny more on Star Wars toys than is needed to keep my collection up to date?  Hell no.

I just wouldn't make an extra trip for a few bucks.  Just getting there in gas already eliminates my gain, plus I just lost time in my day. 

If you're talking $20 or something, then sure.  But I really don't save my receipts anyways though.  I know I'm going to open my figures and enjoy them, and if something goes down in price, I'm not going to regret my purchase.

I've kept every single receipt since I restarted collecting in 01.  Not really sure why, but what the hell.   :-[

To answer Jesse's question, no, I wasn't at the store, but I did hold onto this receipt, so next time I'm there I'll see if I can get an adjustment.

Well, I hope you do get a few bucks back, but I think Wal-Mart will only do so if they have marked the item down at that particular store.  Their managers seem to have more individual say-so on their individual store markdowns than Target or TRU does.

I remember a while back a Wal-Mart in my area had marked all their SAGA2 figures down to $3.00 - I bought a few figures, then went to a different Wal-Mart hoping they'd price match the other store, but they said that sort of thing is done on a store-by-store basis.  Which made sense, as it was an individual store lowering their prices. 

It's just like their clearance sections, you never know what you'll find on clearance there or what the markdown will be at each store.

My Walmart finally got these in. (sure four years later!)

I picked up the Emporer/shadow stormy pack for $14.99. It was pretty beat up and dusty. A bargin by todays prices.
