12" Figure Discounts and Sales
« on: February 1, 2013, 03:17 PM »
Does anyone have any tips for saving dough at Sideshow?  I'm about ready to cave on some crazy expensive Hot Toys figures, so figure dI would check for sales or promo codes first.  Thanks!

Unfortunately, any new item will not have a discount.  They do give you points for each item that you purchase that you can use to discount future prices.  However, there are a couple things to note.  First, you don't actually earn the points until about 30 days after the purchase.  Second, if you use points to purchase an item, you do not earn points on that item.  In that respect, it is better to use points on a cheaper item or to save up enough points to purchase an item for free or near free.  I believe you get one point per one dollar in item price and each point is worth a penny.

In terms of Hot Toys, if they are anything like the Marvel line, they usually sell out and hold their price on the secondary market so finding a bargain is quite tough.

Well if you want Hot Toys and want to save money, best to buy them as released and waiting. I dont often see them every really sell below retail.

I received a Sideshow item and it included a postcard with a $25 coupon code "SPRING2013". It is only valid on pre-order and in-stock items announced prior to March 1 (i.e. Chewbacca Premium Format not eligible).

Simply log into your Sideshow account and add the code to your promo wallet, then you can select the discount at checkout to apply it to your order.
