ing ridiculous. Dont buy that crap from them at those prices. It should be $20 for the 3 character packs and $8 for individual figures. Not $25/$10.
Add me to the list of people irritated at toysrus greed on this. I knew something wasn't right here. I'm still new to this whole skylanders thing but my 12 yr old cousin is big into it. I went to a few stores this week roughly 6 or 7 of them with her to find any but other than the starter pack the shelves were wiped clean. I swore i read somewhere it was 19.99 for the 3 packs and 7.99 for the singles. I happened to be at the toysrus in new york city on Friday and I saw the adventure seas pack and the skull pack or whatever as well as the single boomer figure.
I simply asked the clerk these are buy 1 get 1 25 % off correct? She said yes. Go to the counter it said original price 29.99 sale 25% off new price 23.99 scan 3 pack number 2 original price 29.99 sale 25% off new price 23.99. Scan single figure original price 12.99 sale 25% off new price 9.99.
So that wound up being 23.99 + 23.99 + 9.99 for a total of 57.97 plus taxes.
I then said to the clerk that isn't correct. It is buy 1 get 1 25% off ill do the single in a separate transaction if it is messing it up. So she tries that and it still just took 25% off each item. On a normal occasion this would be fine, but isn't toysrus normal price on these 24.99 anyway not 29.99 ? Anyway so i show her the website on my iPhone showing the 24.99 price and she says she can only sell me what the computer tells her. I said but that sign says buy 1 get 1 25% off. She replied well its taking 25% off each item. I again told her it was wrong, but the computer just kept rejecting it over and over regardless.
I had a dinner reservation I was already 10 minutes late to because of this and seeing 6 separate stores in the state of Connecticut didn't have one damn figure in stock I just bought them. I feel like i got ripped off because i figure if this was price normally it would be $24.99 + $18.75 + $9.99 for a total of $53.73. I paid $57.97 i mean i guess its only 4 dollars but i feel even worse because im already paying 5 dollars more than most retailers that are selling them for $19.99. I was going to maybe call cooperate and ask about this but what do you know i checked the bag later on in the night and there's no receipt in there ! So yea i guess ill just have to live with that , but im not sure what kind of scam toysrus is running with this but whatever.
