Look at the ebay auction the pics came from... already over 100.00 bucks.  ::)

I spotted this auction this morning, it was only at 15 or something. I was watching it, but no way now.

Can anyone confirm if the coupon showed up in the Target weekly ad?

I didn't get one in the paper - but Target.com is saying that there is no weekly ad available at this time.

Which I'm assuming is because of Easter - which lends some credibility to the notion that there might be the April 1st ad that SirStevesGuide was reporting would contain the coupon, that didn't make any sense before.

And confusion continues to reign over all matters related to April 2nd...

Updating my last post - I checked the papers at the grocery store when I was out shopping and there were no Target Ads in them.

Thanks for that -- so no Sunday circular, period. I had to go down to the store to pick one up, came home and found no ads (except for Best Buy and Circuit City) and assumed the ads were just a home-delivery thing. But everyone seems to say no ads.

Hopefully something will show up, because I'm pretty sure I won't get that Target coupon in the mail.

I love the fog of war with all this.

Yeah - my girlfriend is telling me that she's pretty sure that most papers did their ads on Friday, but I don't know anything about it...

Anyone get Friday's paper and notice a large amount of ads?  If not, there's a good chance I'd think that there will be more ads later in the week...

All signs from Target point to there being NO coupon in any newspaper ad.  I'm not sure where all these "coupon in the newspaper ad" ideas came from...

All my Target sources say the coupon is a mail-offer only.

My sources could be wrong of course, but I've received NO concrete info on a newspaper ad coupon, except in the forums under "I've got a friend who knows a guy from Target who said blah blah blah."

Friday had **** for ads. So does todays paper for some reason...not a single Target Flyer in it.

Weird as hell, man.

I've bought plenty of SW merchandise at Target on cards while at this address and am a HS member, so I thought I'd make the cut. But, alas.

My hopes of getting a coupon are slimming and an ad circular coupon was my best chance. My mail service here has been terrible lately (I haven't received the Insider even) so there's a chance it might show up during the week, but it seems unlikely. I would have seriously focused more of my spending to Target if they had come through. As it is, that money will go to Walmart, instead. But right now any savings would have been... helpful.

It almost is enough to make me drop a letter to Target CS, just to vent a bit to low-paid CS reps that don't care either way. Mention that my business went elsewhere. I'm in the mood to produce some melodrama and fire it their way.

A guy on the Toy News International Forums says a buddy of his managed to buy some of the Lava Vaders right off the shelf.  Of course, take that with a large grain of salt.  But someone at that Target may have ****** up big time.

Why someone would need to buy six of them is beyond me.

But like I typed in that thread, I wouldn't give Target a cent for that piece of ****.
