Would it be worth it, shipping costs wise, to send it to a friend's house in Canada and then have him ship it here to Texas?

It actually was available for 13.99 CDN.  Just went OOS pretty quick.  I'm not even Canadian but I tried putting it in my cart with no luck.

I was able to put it in cart but it just wouldn't ship to my location anyway :)

Yeah, I tested it with one of the in-stock Amiibo and got the same, lol.  I'm going to be F5ing the Amazon.com Ike page for the rest of my shift.

Speaking of $10 MP cert - for those who pre-ordered through Amazon back when it was ~$49.99 you should check your orders.  Looks like several people (me included) got randomly bumped back up to $59.99 without any warning.  I contacted Amazon and they were happy to adjust it back down, but just figured I'd let you CAGs know so you don't end up paying retail! <gasp!>

Mine went up as well.  Chatting with Amazon now, they offered me a whopping $5 refund, instead of the $10 difference.  I've never seen Amazon do this with pre-orders.  Crazy...

I mean, not this time but maybe have the address saved for future opportunities. I'm just not sure how much it would add to the price for double shipping: Amazon > Friend > Me.

This is a good thread, I like the idea of members banding together to help each other find amiibos when they go live. I've been doing this solo and so far, have been able to ore order every amiibo except Rosalina and Gold Mario, as well as the LE of Majoras Mask and Monster Hunter 4, and their limited new3DS bundles. Not bad, but had I sent notifications to a group others could have done the same. AND maybe I wouldn't have missed those 2 amiibos.

i just talked to amazon they told me they can't update the price until it ships  :dunce:

 

 

the thing is that it'll continue to update automatically and tomorrow the price could change again to a lower price and then could change the price again, so unfortunately there;s no way for us to update the price since it get's done automatically by the system, but we have records of this being price at $49.99 last week, so as for now, since this is the lowest price charged, that's what we'll charge once it ships

Can the OP please put the Gold Mario links on the first page? There were actually 2 different ones before, and one of them is un-searchable or doesn't show up on Walmart's page any other way except directly with that link. Thanks.

Thanks, but that looks to be the same as the searchable link. There was a 2nd one that looked different.

Did he just disappear really fast or was he always 17 gbp (like 27 bucks before shipping.)

He's there, you gotta check the other listings. I tried but it was $30 USD so I said nope.

 

Now Lucario is no longer available.

Looks like Amazon Italy has Lucario as well (order now but not available til March 9th) but it still comes to about $26. Last time I ordered from there I was able to snag Lucario and a few other amiibos and it wasn't too bad since the incremental cost to ship additional figures wasn't too much more so it came to about 18 each shipped.

Yeah, that's  what they told me.  The rep assured me I wouldn't be charged more than the $49.99 when it ships.

I was told that too, but I suspected the person I was chatting with didn't know what was going on and was just quoting some standard text. When I pressed the guy whether he sees that there was a price drop, he said no and that he couldn't find it ever being $49.99. He still said that it would ship with the lowest price charged and "if the lowest price was $49.99, that's what I would be charged." At that point, I felt this guy really didn't know anything and I couldn't trust this. I don't think he was intentionally lying, but just didn't really know what to do and was just following some dumb protocol. I've also have pre-order's price adjusted WAY before shipment by Amazon, so this "can't do a price change before shipment" is BS. They're low price guarantee policy on pre-orders even states they'll update the price in 24-48 hours of the price decrease.

 

I asked to be transferred to a supervisor. I explained the situation and send a link to tracktor's price history on the bundle which shows it was clearly $49.99 for a few days. The supervisor then adjusted the price for me.

 

If you get the "we won't adjust the price, but you'll be charged $49.99 when shipped" line, I suggest asking to speak with a supervisor early on. I wasted 25 mins. trying to reason with the original rep. And send them the tracktor price history. They can't deny that.

The cause for the confusion is that the thing was only 49.99 because amazon fucked up the pricing. The MSRP of the thing is 59.99 but they decided to use 49.99 as a placeholder and are now trying to backtrack

Yeah, I agree. It was listed as $49.99 for over a day though and that should at least be in their price history. If the rep I spoke with was accurate, it sounds like they removed the $49.99 from their price history (at least whatever they do to look up for price matching). If the $49.99 isn't showing up in their system, it makes it more difficult to price match and very unlikely that people will be charged that price when shipping (if their invoice doesn't currently reflect the $49.99).
