Hi guys, it's me from Chile, I am currently on Los Angeles, for E3 expo, I would appreciate tips and deals on some amiibos ( I just bought a switch console last night).

Do you know any good deals around Koreatown? I think I have a GameStop nearby, but best buy is quite far.

Thank you in advance~

Walked into the Target in Van Nuys, CA and found one of each Mario Odyssey wedding amiibo (Mario, Bowser and Peach). They rang up as $12.99 each, but I took them to Guest Services and price matched them to Target.com’s “clearance” price of $9.08 each.

Are you saying you got the last ones or are you saying how many of each you got and that there is more?

Wish they'd hurry up and list Ridley at BB. My future retirement plan depends on it! ;)

I think I got the last ones of each at a random clearance end cap, but I didn’t check very thoroughly because I was in a hurry. There were a bunch of Animal Crossing amiibos there as well, so I guess it’s feasible there were other amiibo hidden behind them.

Understandable. That is man. I was at best buy today and falco smash broad amiibo was 7.99. Would you guy normally jump on a price like this?

I would, but then I have GCU and want the Smash line of amiibo.

I would too... But I also grabbed Falco at like 3 bucks from BB. They occasionally have him on sale for even cheaper

Really now, 3 dollars? It says it is already on sale from 12.99, so are you saying that it goes even more on sale, so 7.99 is the normal price at BE?

Well with GCU it was like 3-4 bucks. Seriously. This was sometime last year. He does go even cheaper tho. I'm not recommending that you buy it or not buy it... Just merely informing you.

I understand and am very greatful. I am taking in the info you are giving but would also.like to know what amiibo enthusiast veterans typically pay for something. I don't have GCU anymore and there is no renew. Was just wondering if 7.9o is a true sale.price or if it is the norm because I would like to purchase falco at a good price. Thank you for your help and support guys.

I've sadly been paying for amiibos at "full price" with gcu since it all started. A year ago a good amount of the amiibos were down to $5 and under with gcu. It was pretty frequent. Havent seen much hit around that range now. More towards $9 spread across all retailers.

$8 isn't bad. Just do the shipping then change to store pickup trick and get another $1 off. If you're unsure dont get it. It's not a must buy price. I tend to see falco,Ryu, and the animal crossing going on "sale". Just not the dirt low prices it once was.

I don't know if you have many people in the area in this thread. The general advice I have is see if a Toys R Us is close enough. Palutena was under $2 and most stores seemed to have a lot in stock. She'll work with Smash Bros Ultimate when that comes out. As far as other big chains go most of the general information in this thread should hold true at them. I know there is a Target in LA somewhere but not how close it is to you. Amiibo sections are pretty small at most stores in my local part of the country, which I think is the same in most of the US.

It looks like there are a LOT of game stores in the city, they're probably at least worth calling to see if they have any Amiibo. Pricing can be a all over the map but if you're fine with opened figures to get use out of then you can find good prices. I know I've bought 3 or 4 used Amiibo for under $5 at my local places.

Just judging from a map it looks like your closest option is A & M Video Games.

For those collecting the Smash line in anticipation for the Switch game... Get em' while they're cheap:

 

ebay - Gamercandy

Ryu for $5.77 - Shipped

 

ebay - Gamercandy

Lucas $4.34 - Shipped

 

I probably sound like a shill for them by now, but this is pretty much the cheapest I've seen for those two. I've ordered from that store before and the figures have always arrived in a box.

 

 

Also, the store Five Below has been carrying a few amiibo for $5

Haven't been able to confirm it myself, but these were mentioned in the CAG thread:

Lucas

Palutena

ROB

Roy
