Using my K-Mart Reward Zone Discounts I'd racked up, I got an Endor Rebel and Gammie for around $13 today.  Pleased with that purchase.

How's that program work?

It's just a reward zone card you get scanned when you make purchases...  They last a year, so you can accumulate a bit in that time, but I like to use them if I have $4 or $5 available to basically make vintage collection figure purchases for a more reasonable price.

Sometimes there are deals where you earn a lot more points if you buy something specific, like food products for instance. 

You just have to remind the cashiers to scan your card because they never remember, and you have to remember/keep tabs on your balance on it yourself because they rarely tell you that you have $ to use on it.

Assault on Hoth (Set #7

Damn, I wish I could find another AoH set. They sold better than the Defense set, which isn't exactly common by me. Anyway, nice score man!

Thanks, after seeing the reports of it selling better and seeing it firsthand I jumped when I saw it. They had 4 Defense sets left. If I see any more of those on clearance I will bite but I already have 7 of those. Both of these sets were great and even at full price the value was good. I really hope we see more sets like this.

Not a purchase per se, but I got 2 Endor Rebels price-adjusted today and got $4 back.  $4 back on 2 figures I really wanted even at full price is a nice feeling.

Found the Target exclusive TIE Fighter today for $13.98.

Why? Because they were out of the R/C Hailfire droid, had raincheck slips, but shelf sign offered Clone Wars Starfighter substitute for $13.98. I saw the sign...great, but they don't have any clone wars vehicles...but they had the TIE, which scanned at $13.98. So I got one.

Then I foolishly went to the other Target, and no such thing there. They had the hailfire, vehicles were the normal price. Oh, well, shoulda trusted my gut on that one, which said "it's just this store".

I picked up...

3 Sandtroopers, 1 Endor Trooper, 1 Ackbar, 1 Legends Clone, all at K-Mart stores.  The Gammies were all gone and I didn't want more of the others.  Bummer on the gammies I'd seen winding up being gone today even though everything else was still there.  I'm guessing they sold before the sale because the pegs looked identical to Friday night. 

With my rewards card points too, I also knocked another $3 off the total.  That was cool.
