Legacy Prices - Sales, Discounts, Price Hikes!
« on: July 22, 2008, 02:19 PM »
Time to start a new thread I guess...

Free standard shipping on any order of $50 or more at HasbroToyShop.com, code = SUMFS

"Qualifying HasbroToyShop.com purchase based on pre-tax amount, excludes shipping and handling charges, and is subject to HasbroToyShop.com's shipping policies. This offer cannot be combined with any other coupon or offer. Cannot be redeemed for cash. Not valid on previous orders. Offer may expire without notice due to error, fraud or other unforeseen circumstances. Subject to terms and conditions of use. Void where prohibited. Offer expires July 27, 2008 11:59:59 PM (ET)."


*  It says it runs through 7/27, so it might be a nice code to try to use if there are new SW things you want to order this weekend!

In case you missed it, K-Mart is running a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" deal on Star Wars this week.

At my particular K-Mart, the selection sucks and the stuff is over-priced to the point that you aren't getting much of a deal anymore ($30 EVO sets, $10 basic figs), but it's worth a look if you live someplace where K-Mart doesn't totally suck...

I'll continue talking to myself in this thread to let you all know that my local Target dropped the basic figure price today to $6.99 on all three lines (Legacy, Legends, CW).  You might want to check your local Targets and try to get a reciept adjustment for anything you bought this week.

I figured Target would price-match Wm & TRU eventually, but I wasn't expecting it to come so soon...

Thanks Jeff - Next time I go grocery shopping I'm going to get $2 back!

I've noticed Target dropping prices all week. I bought 3 figures there on Monday for $8.99 each, and on a time killing trip there yesterday I saw they were $7.99. Good to see they're matching WM and TRU, too bad they're all picked over.

I went to Target today to find the last 2 evo packs which I did and they had figures for $6.99 as well.
I only bought 6 prior to the drop but just out of principle I will take my receipts for the adjustment, they are bastards, I am getting sick of their quick drops. Price it right the first time.

That didn't take them very long, they had to be hurting from Wal-Mart and TRU have a more competitive price. Now I'm looking forward to the eventual 10-20% sale Target will have in a couple of weeks so I can score me the V-19 and Spider Droid. They always do these sales after a few weeks of a new toy line launch...

Good to know they're dropping prices.  I'd written them off out of principle till they started to be competitive, so now I can put them back on the list of "OK to buy from".

Saw Target's price drop as well. I knew the $8 price point wouldn't hold when I saw that TRU's price was $7.

Pretty sure they're going back up to $8 across the board so consider it a one month break.

Check the front page here for that 10-20% off sale at Target. ;)

And thanks to our Target Sources for the tip.

Well that didn't take long. I was expecting the sale to hit the week after the movie came out, but this will do just fine. Time to score those vehicles I've held out on, maybe find me that damn Rebel Pilots 2 Evolutions set.

$8.99?!  Are you sure?  $9 a figure is seriously ridiculous.

Good news!  I'll have to gather all my receipts together again for another price match next week... :)

I knew this would happen.  Good thing I held out on a lot of things, though I did get quite a few price adjustments at Target this morning.  The AT-TE is marked at $89.99, but the Falcon didn't have any sale markings on the shelf.  I assume that sucker is on sale as well, no?  I didn't feel like lagging that huge box up to the scanner.
