Right now at toysrus.com... CMF series 16, regularly $3.99, clearance price $3.98! But they're out of stock. Bummer.
Target, WM and Amazon get most of my business now.
But I did stop in yesterday for fun and they had the series 2 Batman figures for 2 for $5, so I got the whole set plus extras for less than MSRP, (I saved close to $40). I was excited. It said limit 8, but they didn't hold me to it when I went up front. Otherwise I would have just left and came back in and purchased the rest. It would have been annoying, but doable.
Moving inventory to another store makes more sense than selling it dirt cheap, as much as we may dislike it.
@legogal annoyed there weren't sales 3 days after Christmas - in general, that may have been jumping the gun, as I see more clearance after January 1st elsewhere.
On a side note....when you purchased anything at TRU during the store closing the policy was 'no returns' and they'd marker out the barcode on every item.
Also, they do generally have higher prices, but they are glad to price match with a lot of competitors, including Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc. You can do it at any register if you pull up the price on your phone, or at customer service if you don't want to do that. I buy pretty much all of my LEGO sets at TRU, I use price matching to get a good price and I collect rewards for use later on. I know it's an extra step, but I really like supporting my local store because the staff there is pretty awesome. I'd hate to see it go away. If every store had people like the ones at my local store then TRU would be doing MUCH better right now. Hopefully they get that customer service part taken care of in the next few years.
Also, although LEGO sets generally don't get marked down, TRU runs clearance blast events where they offer 5%-25% off of clearance prices. I was able to pick up some sweet deals on Chima and Ultra Agents that way.
Also, TRU puts a bad taste in the mouth by pricing some sets above RRP, but most of us avoid buying anything that isn’t on sale anyway, so what matters is if they have decent discounts with some regularity. Like a lot of places, they do, but you have to keep checking to catch them.
my guess is it’s an In-Store not corporation one:
Reserve your spot... https://reserve.toysrus.com/
Why not reply to it? oh well...
I’d say if you’re thinking of using 3 ^, you’re definitely pushing it too far. But, yeah, I’m sure somebody snuck in the middle.
#40236 is down to $6.99
CMF S17, TLBM, and TLNM CMFs are 2 for $5
