The series 5 cards are a bunch of bs. Half the set are limited to 1 per pack. So in theory, youd need to get 24 packs and hope for no doubles to get the full set. that will leave you with 94 extra cards at a cost of $144. Nintendo always making that sleazy cash

I see someone has never dipped their toes into the world of collectable card games in general

not really. They did this for the previous series but at least the cards sets were 100 each. That at least gave you a reason to buy more packs

Just got a cancellation email from WM on two Amiibo card packs ordered 11/5. Knew I should have gone with Amazon when they had them. I’ll keep an eye out for restocks.

 

-Update- Amazon got stock again this morning (6am est). Ordered one and another on my sister's account. Her kids are covered now.

If enough people are looking for singles like you are, you can always flip the ones you don't want for your money back all depending on luck of course. Otherwise just buy the single you're looking for and move on.

All card companies make the same kind of sleazy cash, it is not exclusive to Nintendo.

Managed to find a target with cards but they were limited to 1 a person, so I now have 2 whole packs of the set lol.

Since it seems like it'll be impossible to actually collect them due to the limitations, I'll likely just sell them off individually

And this is coming from someone who buys boxes of Magic boosters. This scalping plus the stock issues is insane

I managed to get 11 packs and even with 55 villager cards I wasn’t able to get all 24.  I am missing 3.  That just feels wrong.  Heck I got 3 repeats on the special cards too.

So far I only have a duplicate of Raymond, but everytime I see packs go up, even with alerts they are gone in a minute or less

 

Managed to get 2 more packs, 1 through Gamestop and Target instore. So far I haven't gotten too many duplicates which is nice, especially for the foils.

I was able to get ten packs of the Animal Crossing Series 5 Amiibo Cards at Target today. They also had several packs of the Animal Crossing Sanrio Cards. They were hanging on an end cap in electronics.

I guess I should try Target in store, since everywhere online has been a bust.

There an AC amiibo  Reddit that is pretty active, but many now are looking to trade SP for SP cards there.  
 

I managed to finish the regular cards and am just looking to get the SP cards via eBay at this point since most want you to ship with tracking on the Reddit so that’s $3+ for each trade.  Plus the cost of the card pack.  If I can get an SP card for less than $10 on eBay it’s less hassle.

Are the SPs coming down in price yet? I had started looking at it last week and was seeing $20-50 per SP and kind of lost the desire to purchase them to complete out mine.

When I looked last night, it's like $10-25, so yes?

Many of the fixed prices are 10-15, but I’ve lucked out on some auctions and been getting them for $6-9 shipped.

At $1 a card MSRP, that'd be less than MSRP.
