If you get denied, don't give up guys. I got denied TWICE by two separate employees at the one Target, and on the way out stopped at Customer Service who were happy to help...
Try in the back area, then try an employee on the way out, and if you fail twice, try customer service. You have nothing to lose on this, they're not gonna ban you from the store. It's their job.
The item's in the computers, it's got a price (save receipts, as price could change May 5), and it's not marked as a "May 5th Only" kind of item (some ******bag I ran into tried that, but I countered him and he backed off that argument).
Make up excuses too, or use one you maybe have legitimately. I called, and told them I was TOLD they were in stock and was TOLD to come down and get one off an employee as I have a long drive... That was true 100% at one store, at the other store the employee lazily told me they didn't have any (when I got there, they did). I did have to drive an hour to get to either store though, so that's partly true even at the 2nd store.
It implies you're not gonna be happy if you're told to hike on this one, and not gonna be coming back to their store... I even went so far as to say, "I figured I'd do some shopping while I was here too, but I'll go to the WM close to home if I can't get anything..." kinda line.
This is one of those crappy things that's gonna take legwork if you want it.
BTW, the price blows and it is an incredible kick to collectors. Fortunately competition keeps Target in line with pricing, but with an exclusive they know they have an upperhand. Price blows any way you slice it though, no argument there. It did on the Vader, Holo Yoda, and EB Kits as well if you ask me... and C3 Vader.
