View Full Version : Target dropped their price to $5.89 today
02-23-2006, 11:29 AM
There was no sign that this was a special sale price - it's just marked like it always was - but at $5.89. That's good news. Rumor is that with the price drop, Target will be getting a lot of figures from their distribution centers and trying to move them. Maybe the Geonosian Wave will become more common. Who knows? Maybe the Coruscant Wave will start showing up?

Sounds good to me! Now I won't have to drive to WM to buy all of my figures, Target is much closer. Thanks for the info Tycho.

That is excelent news, I find in my area that Target receives and stocks product better that Wal**Mart. Altho, I did score 2 Scortches, Utapu Clones and AT-AT Drivers on Sunday

This is great news! I hope my Target has lowered their price as well.

IF we have receipts, do they still honor the difference for 90 days?

We I was out last week I had half the Target at the lower price and half at the higher. Since I was hitting a lot of Target I haven't hit in a while I don't know if these stores every raised their price to 6.99 or not but it was nice to see. I would definately like to see my local store go back down.:thumbsup:

Maybe the Coruscant Wave will start showing up?But that could also mean we'll choke on the Carkoon and Hoth waves more though. So it could be a blessing or a curse.

You could take everything back and hope to be able to get it the minute it goes back on the shelf. :)
The $5.89 price was in full effizect at the Hemet WM this afternoon. I just didn't need the stupid Yoda or C-3PO.

I'm going to swing by Target on my way to work tomorrow and hope that they have made the price adjustment. I am caught up with this wave, but I could still use some of the Utapau clones and I am also looking for a couple of figs for someone else.

No, you only have 14 days from the day of purchase to get a price adjustment.
Thanks for the heads up

the tru sale of 4.99 rocks! too bad they only have the waves i saw before new years! we all predicted target lowering prices. we should have had a pull on the date!:thumbsup:
02-23-2006, 11:22 PM
thanks so much for the heads up! i'm going to go get a price adjustment on all the geo wave figures i scored last week and if i'm lucky maybe use that money towards a clone or at-at driver or even another sun fac.

-if your wailmart has a better selection, you could always take this week's TRU flyer there so they'll match the sale- well not Always, just till saturday ;)

My Target still had them at $6.99 last night, and only a few Rieekans and Derlins. Whoop de doo.
02-24-2006, 07:40 PM
John, price check them. The pegs were probably still $6.99 because an employee didn't get around to making new end-labels. And since you probably have Derlin and Reikeen, you had no reason to scan them or take them to a register. But they should come up as $5.89.
In the meanwhile, it'd cost the buck or so you'd save driving back to price match your older purchases. I'd just do it while you're tracking down whatever you need from Geonosis, or Coruscant when that hits.

When I went to Target today the pegs were priced $6.94. Not $6.99 like they had been, but $6.94... A 5 cent price drop, strange eh? I did not take the time to scan them.
02-24-2006, 10:05 PM
i'd go 6.94 on a utapau or scorch!:mad:
02-25-2006, 09:07 AM
Confirmed that this is not a chain-wide price drop. I just got home from buying a Sora Bulq, Scorch, and Utapau Clone Trooper, and they all rung up as $6.99.
I was prepared to pay that anyway, so big whup.

I didn't notice what the price was when I went to Target today. They didn't have anything I wanted or needed. They had the Geonosis wave but no Scorch. I ended up getting three of the small Titanium Series vehicles at $4.99. I did find a Scorch at Fred Meyer for $6.99. I've not seen figures at Wal-Mart since early January, so their low price hasn't helped me much.

Target here has 6.89 on the pegs, didnt scan figures ot see what they ring up at.
02-25-2006, 07:13 PM
the figures rang up at $5.89 at my local target. i got price adjustments on the geonosis wave i bought last week but any receipts i had older than 14 days ago weren't eligible for the adjustment. (believe me, i tried)

I'll have to check mine tomorrow....haven't been around lately.
