In Topic: Target Clearance Thread XXII

15 May 2017 - 01:27 AM

I had a $26 Kraken in hand and couldn't pull the trigger. I regretted it 30 minutes later and it was gone. Not one of my prouder moments.

Also. If a store shows Brickseek shows Limited Stock and no Saleable/On Hand but Target's site shows available in store only, should I just assume they have none if I can't find on the shelf? I asked a manager but he just directed me to the clearance end cap.

I really would have liked to pick up a micro SD for my switch but the last one I bought was bogus (got a refund with little hassle.)

I picked up some neon joy-con instead for $73. Not a Bad deal considering I'm in TX so I saved sales tax too.

I'd also advise anyone going to Walmart to comb through the electronic's section row by row. My Walmart has amiibo on 2-3 end caps, in the standard amiibo section and another smaller clearance section toward the electronic's register.

Makes searching for specific amiibo frustrating for sure.

One of my local Walmarts showed 27 of Smash Link on hand. 27. Went there and didn't see even one. Asked the clerk about it (who seemed like a gamer...young guy talking about Gears of War to another clerk I think)...he said someone else came in the day before asking about them and they couldn't find them in the back. I didn't press it, or check out any other sections of the store...but unless Amiibo share a sku (which I don't believe they do), 27 is an awfully large amount to be missing...

They may pop up eventually...there were 4 LEGO First Order Transporter sets ($89 MSRP) I had been looking for a month ago but never saw...they had them out on Friday when I stopped by browse...tagged $59 but rang up $20 (bought all 4 for parts; I can sell the minifigs to recoup the cost). The boxes for the sets were a little beat up and dusty...

Unless those Amiibo might be somewhere away from the rest (there was even an empty shelf peg for that Link), I dunno...

Would have been a scalper's paradise, though...roughly $700-800 profit to be had from finding that many of them.

I've seen people mention that some of the smash amiibo DO share a SKU. Not sure if was here but I know the discussion has occurred.

Just yesterday I went to my Walmart because it said they had 2 Link and 2 Sheik amiibo on clearance for $8 each. When I got there the ONLY smash amiibo were 2 MewTwo amiibo. I would need to do some more diggin but it looked to me like the skus are shared or were merged later in the shelf life.

In Topic: Walmart 128GB samsung microSD EVO $34.88 good for switch?

Considering the EVO+ can be found fairly often at $40 I think it's worth it for almost double read/write speeds.

They were as low as $1-$5 dollars on clearance about 1-2 months ago but all shot back up to $34.88 about 3 weeks ago. If I could find one $20 or less I'd probably bite regardless.

Oh, and in my experience, this item's quantity count on Brickseek is way, way off. I went to 2 wal-marts that said they had 15+ in stock and none could be found and employees confirmed others had asked and they had none in stock.
