The settlement says:

"in store distribution... will be separate and apart from, and in addition to any previously planned promotional events for 2003."

Does this mean that if KB has a current sale for example of 25% off at the register for Mega Bloks, that KB has to take an additional 30% off if you purchase > $30? This will mean a 55% discount.
or
Will they just take the 30% off at the registers only?

What does this legal jargon mean?

Thanks.

I believe something around those lines. As long as it is more than $30 after the 25% off discount then I don't see why it cannot work.

I am pretty sure it means that you can "double dip" into both of the sales. Just like you stated...if something is 25% off but still over $30, you get another 30% off.

You're right. I just came from there. If something is 25% off, you get an additional 30% = 55% off.
That makes for some bargains.
Happy shopping. :D

sorry but the math doesn't work like that. taking 25% off then an extra 30% off does not equal 55%. if you start from $100 and take 25% off = $75. 30% of 75 is $52.50, but 55% of the original hundred you'd be paying only $45.

I just got back from KB, I was hoping thaey'd have a better selection of '02 pegwarmers but they had the same 4-5 figures.
To myu delight they had the Playschool Falcon (which I haven't got yet) so I grabbed it and a lightsaber, 3 figure bundle pack. The total came to $36. Too cool. I've beeen looking for the Falcon playschool all year, I wouldld've paid the sticker price of $29.99. So after taxes, I basically got the Falcon I wanted and an the lightsaber/3 figure pack for only $4.
I love sales

Jax is absolutely correct. It's not rocket science.

Of all the KB's I checked this weekend, I was getting the impression that none were actively restocking Star Wars stuff because of the "sale". All the ones I visited had the same crappy figures they've had for months. And no Imperial Shuttles, Clone Wars 3 packs, or Clone Wars bonus backs.

Cool, now I will only have to spend $4,000 dollars as opposed to $6,000 at Kay Bee to earn enough JMPs to win one of the Cantina figures off the auctions. Sweet deal, I'm headed over there at opening time tomorrow. Woohooo!!! :rolleyes:
