Is that generated from being a Rewards Club member?

I use my card all the time, but I've yet to get any really good coupons like this. I'd use that too.

There's a new $5 off K-mart Coupon.

I think it's the same as the last one, but through October 31st. Now if I could find a store that has Jodo Kast.

Holy crap that is ridiculous.  A whole month for us collectors to use and abuse that one....

edit:  the K-mart coupon works - I just picked up a Jodo    ;D

$5 Star Wars figures at Target this week (Iron Man, too). The ad only shows Clone Wars. I haven't been yet. I doubt vintage will be included. But Legends probably will.

Vintage but would be nice, but yeah, I doubt it.

Hopefully there's some newish CW or Snowtroopers to pick up.

I was disappointed in no Vintage sale.  :(  Saw a lot I'd probably have picked up tonight.  Saw a couple Dak's for the first time in ages, and a Magna Guard.

I may cave on a few Legends army builders, but ya - kinda sucks that Vintage isn't included in this sale...Not like they have more accessories or thicker cardbacks like the other two lines.  $5 though....good sale, brings me back to the good ol days.   :)

I was disappointed to see that vintage wasn't included as well, although I guess I'm not surprised.  I know it is the "collector's" line and all, but we can't ever get a sale on these?  It seems like most to all of the sales so far at the "big three" retailers has excluded TVC.

That said, the $5 price is always nice, so I may pick up some extras/army builders from Legends.  I have to say, at least locally, all the pegs are pretty well stocked for all three lines lately.

For the past three years, everyone has been complaining that the retailers couldn't tell the difference between the three carded figure lines.  Hasbro finally fixed it so that Vintage is clearly separate from Clone Wars / Legends and now you're all complaining that you wish they were treated the same again!   :P 

Some folks are never happy...  :-*

fyi, target.com has the Geonosis sets and CW exclusives up for sale on their site - the Hoth sets are sold out.  Just posting this here to let people know I did find a target.com code for 10% in case you want to order some of these exclusives.

Code = TC1OC3AB

I added all 4 Geonosis sets I would buy plus the Commando set and Bounty Hunter pack to my cart for giggles to see how much it would cost.  Final cost including tax and shipping = $95.09 after a discount of $9.10 being taken off the top.  Shipping was only $6.11, I wish HTS could give these types of shipping deals.

Not sure I am going to bite on this yet but thought I would let other know.

edit:  just thought I would share a bit more of my research - starting Sunday October 17th Target card holders will save 5% off their purchase when they use their card.  I was wondering if I could stack this, along with the code above, but it appears you still have to wait a week for this program to start working. 

yes, I like saving money when I can   ;D
