    ^^This is not fully true. To Target the pices is what it scans in the system. What you had happen was a LOD vibe with you to make you happy. This is done on a store by store base and and may vary LOD to LOD. Cus in the end how do they not know you didn't just flip the sign or move the items your self. (Not saying you did just from a Target stand point)

    I've never had any luck talking to a Walmart employee...but with Target it's happened everytime I've tried....and I normally don't press the issue. I found some of those 4x4 storage blocks ($19.99) and someone on here mentioned they found them for $4.48. I found them at the store and they scanned as "not found in their system"....I asked a manager..and she said no problem and I got them for $4.48. Recently, after X-mas there were SW Shuttle and SH Batmobile polys in the X-mas clearance bins but they rang up full price. I found an employee and they let me have them for 50% off.
    Walmart employees never seem to have an idea or the authority to do anything...except say it's up to the store manager, who is never around.

    I would add that even the managers from my experience never seem to have any idea and deny having any authority. From my nearly 20 years experience in retail with various companies I know this to not be the case (they nearly always do have the authority) but it's never been worth arguing so I just smile and say thanks.

    The one time I asked to price a clearance item at Walmart, it was a SP3 Galactic Enforcer... 2 years after they had been clearanced out. Must have been a return. Didn't scan in the system. They made me wait 20 minutes for a manager. She tried to argue that it was a $140 set, since someone had it listed for that through Amazon at the time. After 5 minutes of arguing, she told me they couldn't sell it anyway.

    Never again.

    Someone was clearly going to buy it themselves to try to turn a profit

    I saw an Architecture Studio on the shelf at Walmart the other day (in a Clearance aisle for $110.) Have to have been a return, right?
    It looked like the seals were broken, so I left it.

    @LegoKip - Sorry I forgot to mention I'm in MN. I went to one Target today. The only clearance Lego they had left was a Chima Cragger alarm clock for $7.48. There are 3 other Targets nearby I should be able to hit tomorrow, I'll report my findings in case anyone else reading this is in the Twin Cities.

    Saw a Friends set on clearance at Walmart the other day. $39.97 marked down to $39.00. That 97 cents is going to cinch the sale. Even took it over to the scanner to check - yup $39.00.

    I read this thread and shake my head. Up here in Canada, Target is going out of business. Two years in and they projected being unable to turn a profit until 2021. In two years I've seen Lego discounts there only TWICE. The most recent discount is only 30%. And Target wonders why Canadians are disgusted with them. Hello! We have cool places like Brickset where people discuss your sales practices! How about throwing us a bone in the Great White North? Oh right, you're dead now and all that's left is your bones. Bye, Target! We won't miss you here.

    So, you're glad that Target is closing shop because only two Lego discounts over a two year period? That make sense. (insert facepalm)

    How about the first bone we throw you back is the douchebag Bieber.

    You want universal health care AND sales on Lego? Let's be realistic here.

    No. I'm just not sad to see them go, because they came in here, all pompous and arrogant, and just assumed we'd fall all over them for their amazingness. The reality was they were not amazing, they were mediocre, and they paid the price of their colossal arrogance.

    I'm not here to argue or anything but I am curious as to how Target rolled in all arrogant.

    I don't see why a store that is only a year or 2 could even have all that much to discount. It's been my personal experience that you don't get anything more then the standard 5-10% off until they have product that is taking up shelf space that could be filled by newer, full price items.

    They bought a failed retailer and announced they were coming to Canada two years before they came. Then they opened 130+ stores simultaneously but didn't bother to launch a website. They still don't have a website where you can browse products or order things. They also didn't bother to ensure that they could keep their shelves stocked. Their stores were newly renovated and clean but the product selection was terrible. Finally, the prices they offered were no better than any of the competition. Target has a reputation for having good prices, but Canadian Target was just the same old prices everyone else had. Then they acted all mystified about why nobody was coming and buying their products. They didn't understand the Canadian market, what Canadians wanted, why the retailer they bought had failed in the first place, or what Canadians expected from Target itself. They waltzed in here and demanded attention, and blew it.

    Anyway, I don't think I should sidetrack this thread further. Good luck to all you USians with your low prices. I'll visit some time if the dollar ever recovers. :wink:

    No Lego on sale but got cmf 12 and an helicopter poly.

    It depends, I guess, on what you buy. Cartwheel has significantly made grocery shopping very inexpensive on many trips, as well as netting me a Quinjet for around $23 (not on clearance). Target is more appealing to me because they actually stock things in the toy aisle...or rather they used to.

    Target, not being Walmart, is a big factor for most people, I'd say.

    But Target does offer price matching (even to their website which can be cheaper) then add to it the 5% red card discount...it can be a nice place to shop.

    Actually, it might be time to close this thread anyway. Clearance is mostly over and the lego aisle have been reset. Next reset/clearance will be July/August. Better to start new threads based on new sales/discounts/Frozen set availablity.

    To be fair, today is the day I'm expecting some of those many leftover Chima Speedorz to drop further to 70% off.

    And it still won't be enough of a discount...

    There's usually some good discounts around march/april

    Found a Ninjago #70725 MechDragon without a clearance sticker on it for $44.xx. Still couldn't pull the trigger. At least I got my Barnes and Noble to use the 20% off coupon on Minecraft Legos for the kids. Now the manager will let me use them on regular Legos but I can't on Architecture....3 months ago it was reversed.

    Target doesn't always price match their website. Mine didn't. I think it depends on who is working. Mine must be a strict group of people. Doesn't matter, Amazon is usually cheaper on top of it.

    If it helps, you can get the mech dragon at toys r us for $32 using the 20% clearance coupon.

    They should, or so say their corporate policy: https://corporate.target.com/about/shopping-experience/shop-with-confidence#q5390.
