Yeah, I noticed that, but hopefully the battery in it will last awhile. Maybe I should stop pressing it  :P

It's hard to stop pressing it, isn't it?!  :P

I've put "Vader" on the phone a few times too...

Stopped at Target yesterday, and they had a few of these back "in stock", so I decided to pick one up.  Really good light and sound on such a small card, and kind of a neat little collectible.  I just put $5 on it, and figured I can use it on a figure or something later on (they didn't have anything new there really).  I assume they will let you keep the gift card after you use it, at least if you ask right? :)

I did not get one and kind of regret not picking it up 4/2 now.  I saw one and it really is an interesting/neat little item, and a nice momento for the 4/2 experience...  I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled for it I guess, but having seen one now I'd really like to pick it up.

I was so out of it at Target that morning, I didn't even think much about the card...  Didn't even look at one.  Too early in the morning for me that day.

I found another one today, although apparently someone had pulled the card off and tried to hide it in another slot, but not hard to spot and place back on the backing. Put $5 on it and bought a bag of Skittles and a Pepsi.

Walmart Gift Cards??
« Reply #24 on: May 2, 2005, 05:40 PM »
I hated to start a new thread so I just changed the title for this.  Has anyone been able to pick up the three new Walmart gift cards yet?  I ordered the online set but my local Walmart thinks I'm crazy when I asked about them today.  I tracked down a picture so I can bring with me tomorrow but if they aren't out yet, I might as well wait.

Just a head's up that we've got one of these cool Vader gift cards included (with $5 on it) in our new JD Target exclusive giveaway with the Lava Vader figure.  So head on over to the main page and get your entry in there if you wanna win one of these cool little suckers!

I actually stumbled upon another one of these just a few days ago at Target, and threw $5 on it to use it on a figure and then keep it (to pass along to a buddy).  Nifty little gadgets, they are...  8)

I was in Target the weekend the new toys came out, but I didn't see the gift card.  The next Monday, my mom got the discount card in the mail for $1 off on figures -- so I went back to Target and asked them if I could still get the discount because the card came late in the mail -- and amazingly, they let me use the card, even though the figures were already on sale.  Unfortunately, I couldn't afford to buy very many.  It was that trip that I saw a space for the gift card on a display -- but it was empty.  I asked about it, and they found another box in back, so I bought one, then paid for my purchases that day with the card.

And after I left, I realized that I should've gotten more of them, since they're essentially free.  Oh well.

I also picked up three SW gift cards at Wal-mart (these are just the regular, non light- and sound-FX kind) -- but the cashier there knows of my obsession, so she didn't make me go through the "buy the card then redeem it" process, she just threw 'em in my bag. <G>

Back at Christmas, I got a gift card from Hot Topic -- funny thing, there's no copyright info anywhere on that card, which had me wondering if it was legit.

I've still yet to get a Target card with the light-up saber.  Kinda bummed I missed those now because they are quite nice looking.  I'd love one given the experiences I had on 4/2...  A nice momento. :)

I found a bunch at both Targets I went to this weekend, so I bought another one and got the new TIME magazine and a Mother's Day card with it. Definitely a great little collectible.

Does anybody collect the Star Wars gift cards?  Like the ones at Wal-Mart & Target.
