KB has been promoting this past few weeks the KB Toy Club where you get a stamp on a card for buying $25 or more (bonus 1 stamp when you join in). When you get 4 stamps (or the equivalent of $75 sales), then you can get 20% off whatever your next purchase with certain exclusions (like video games, etc).
Since I was able to find the latest wave from one store, I figured might as well join in and got four stamps in the process. Now I've just gotten back from the same store and I found that all of the SW figures have been taken off the shelf!
I've heard all about what the other stores have been doing about clearing away the old Saga toys to make way for the newer waves and in some cases the prices were being lowered. So I asked one of the salesperson about it and she said that all the SW toys were being retagged. Thoughts of finally getting those extra army builders on sale and with the additional 20% off the toy club card were racing through my mind. :happy:
That was until she showed the new price tags of $5.49 from the previous $4.99! What the $#@&* is going on? Then I saw the boxes behind the counter still with the old $4.99 price tags! I was about to get some of the army builders for the old price (plus 20% off the Toy Club card) but I was stopped and she said that they're all $5.49 now!
I certainly gave her a piece of my mind and I'm not about to make any more purchases from that store or from any other KB store if they're doing the same thing. Almost forgot that the other salespersons are busy going around the store putting on new price tags on other toys! I looked at a few and the prices were certainly going up as well!
Don't buy from KB stores coz their Toy Club is just a big scam!
