MAY THE 4th BE WITH YOU...and your wallet!

ROGUE ONE AT-ACT - $49.99

Already gone at that price. A shame, I would have finally bought one at that price

I got a Sabine 3&3/4" figure for $2.08 at GameStop. They have a nice sale going on today but none of the stuff actually pictured in their ad is in stock. I heard more than one of their employees grumbling about it too.

Ordered some Wal-Mart 2.49 figures. Ship to store...so no shipping...maybe. I've never really done that.

Yeah no shipping.  It's easy peasy.  I've done that even for random stuff my stores don't always have in stock just so I get what I need/want.  Do the same at Walgreens.

The problem with walmart ship to store is the incompetent employees working back there. Those people take a long time finding anything in the back. The computer says it there but they will come back and tell you its not and to come back later just to get rid of you. I even had one employee take a half hour break while she was looking for my package. The lines are huge just because they can't process orders fast enough and don't know where anything is. It will cost less of your time to ship home instead.

I've only done ship to store with WalMart a couple of times.  The most recent time I did that it worked great.  It appeared that my order was packaged at a distribution center, and that box was placed in one my local stores pickup lockers.  I entered my order info at the kiosk and the locker with my order popped open, and I walked right out of the store.  Pretty easy in my book!

Yeah never experienced that.  Long line one time but it was Xmas so layaway had it backed up.  Otherwise I use it relatively often and it works.  Got a bunch of Death troopers that way and my Cassian Andor figures because the assortment never shipped here.

I've used it for our cat's food cuz our store never has the kind we use in stock in the smaller bags and so I say piss on it and order online.  I'm always back to toys anyway so it's not even outta the way in the store.  Sometimes my gf shops while I go pick it up tho.

No real problems with mine other than the usual  paranoia I feel every time I enter a Wal-Mart* and the odd employees...I having resting bitch face, so people think I'm impatient or something, and if you buy Star Wars toys sometimes they look at the package like they've never seen one before. I'd go automatic teller but...I had bottle return slips and they have to processed by a humtron employee.

*I've heard people say things about Wal-Marts and Meijers...they have "prepare themselves" if they go there. I don't think they meant shopping list, either.

Picked up a U-Wing at Barnes & Noble today for $12. Neat ship, but I do wish is was bigger and had more paint detail. I should just be happy Hasbro is still making vehicles.  :-\

I picked up my order today.  Nobody there but you tap the card swipe and it's set up to call someone back.  He scanned my phone bar code I signed he scanned the box I left.  Easy peasy.

Now, checking out was a whole other thing because the meat dept f'ng up the sticker on packaging is frequent and the people at the counter I rang out at apparent didn't understand entering department and doing the math (weight x price per pound) to get the item's price, and had to call for help so someone could come back and do exactly that...  not that I even work there but still knew how to do that for them.  ::)

Yeah seriously I knew what to do that'd work and they didn't.  JHC.

People finding cheap stuff at Barnes and Noble? I haven't been in one in years. There's one relatively close but it has one of those almost always full parking lots, thanks to Whole Foods and other close businesses.

I only report the promo codes, I don't control the inventory. :P ;)

(there are a LOT of bargain deals for custom fodder though - dirt cheap ships, 5POA figures).
