    Looks like The Scuttler and Killer Croc are down to $30 in a few Walmarts near me. Already bought a Croc for $45, shoulda waited I guess. 
    Yup. Got a Scuttler tonight for $30 too. Plus a few others.

    It's cleaner to just return it if you find one cheaper. Price adjustments rarely work at Wal-Mart, especially with clearance. Some people have issues with this practice, but in my opinion that's why retailers have return policies. 
    Agree. This is the right way to do it. If available, buy at the lower price and return the higher price one. If not available at lower price than keep the one you got and be content. Price adjustment to something that they ran out of does not seem right. Just my two cents.

    I was told that Walmart will make the price adjustment for you if it is a week or less.  I used this policy to get additional discounts on some Star Wars Lego sets this summer.  There were none on the shelves, but it was still in their system at the lower price.  If its over a week, you might try buying one from the shelf and then returning it on the more expensive receipt.  If there are none on the shelf and it is later than one week, you could take your chances for it to be returned to the toy department.  There is that slim chance though that someone else will see it before you do and snag it at the cheaper price.

    Aww, according to brickseek someone snagged up all 6 of the $30 scuttlers at my local walmart. Now do I drive 40 minutes to the next closest or let it slide?

    So, I just bought TLBM Scuttler online for $69 (giggity) and change.  I was hoping to snag it for $30 at the local WM this morning, but the customer service guy assured me that if I did a site to store thing, they would correct the price after the fact (he saw it was much cheaper, had I found it in store).  Anyone have any luck with this?  (And yes, I realize there has been a lot of talk on related matters over the last few days, but I'm currently at work and honestly looking for input to this particular pickup method).  Thanks!

    I grabbed a Dragon Forge for $40 this morning. Trying to hold off buying other stuff that has good price tags that I don't really want or need.

    That sounds ridiculous.  If this were the case everyone would be doing this since you can get so much online that is sold out due to crazy clearance prices at the store.  If he does do it for you I am sure it would just be an isolated thing.

    Finding all the same stuff everyone else is and  a few more:

    #75101 F.O Special Forces Tie ($25ea)...thought that was off shelves awhile ago

    #75156 Krennic Shuttle $35ea

    #60104 City Airport Passenger Terminal $45

    Just found four #41232 Super Hero High School for $30 at the Bloomington store. Bought 3, left one. Shelf was still marked $59. 
  • 77ncaachamps77ncaachamps Aspiring Time Traveler Stuck in the West (US)Member Posts: 2,435
    Are people using the In-Store scanners or their WM app to verify prices?
  • AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,320
    I used the app. Been working great for me.
  • elspankdogelspankdog TexasMember Posts: 403
    The Wal-mart app is what I use, and it is surprisingly pretty nice.  You can also use it to say when you arrive for an in-store pickup, but whether or not that results in anybody getting up to get your order depends on the location.
  • HanzoHanzo VAMember Posts: 607
    Yeah, using brickseek to verify their stock (not 100% accurate but very close in my experience) then their app to verify price in store.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,788
    Same for me. I always scan in-store to verify once there.
  • FowlerBricksFowlerBricks USAMember Posts: 1,591
    Found #21132 for $25.

    ^I clicked the "Like" button only because there isn't a "I really hate/envy you right now" button. 

    In particular, your #70908 and #70594. Great find!

    The best haul I've had in a long time. Unbelievable really.


    Wow. Can't beat that and I was surprised to see #70908 scanning for $30 and still left untouched.
  • KingAlanIKingAlanI Rochester, NYMember Posts: 1,831
    Got to another WalMart. Most of the same deals I saw at the store near me, but additional quantity of the same set is great for bricklinking

    4 #10728 Mia's Vet Clinic $11 - one for cousin Mia once she's old enough for real LEGO
    #41118 Heartlake Supermarket $15 - okay deal especially when it includes a male minidoll
    3 #41123 Foal's Washing Station $5 - one for my cousin who is also named Emma
    3 #41124 Heartlake Puppy Daycare $15
    #41127 Amusement Park Arcade $7 - decent deal. has some of the sports parts also in #41312. hole in box but clear the minidoll parts are still there, expanded the hole when looking. figured I should take it at that point.
    2 #41129 Amusement Park Hot Dog Van $15 - one for gift
    #41142 Palace Pets Royal Castle $9
    #41185 Magic Rescue from the Goblin Village $25 - took way too long to get an associate to unlock the display case

    Got 10728, 41118, 41124, 41129, 41142 and 41185 before. Store near me has 41123, 41124, 41127.

    more than I planned to get, most of us have been there done that. had to count out a bunch of small bills and dollar coins

    @77ncaachamps I use the app if necessary, saves me the trouble of hunting for a price scanner

    Mind if I ask what walmart location you are finding all the scuttlers?  I am in Nova as well.
  • BrickByBrickBrickByBrick Massachusetts, USAMember Posts: 588
    I was at Walmart for $30 Scuttlers, bought a friend's puppy daycare for my sister and a scarif Stormtrooper for my brother. I also found a #9483 Agent Mater's Escape from 2012 for $11. Nothing crazy off RRP, but I was shocked to see it sitting on the shelf, so I had to buy it.

    Ok. I finally nabbed the only sets I wanted this discount cycle.

    I bought
    a Ninjago forge for $40
    an Elves Magic Rescue of Goblin Village for $25

  • GoldchainsGoldchains Member Posts: 795
    I am sad.  Went to four different Walmarts looking for a $30 Scuttler and a $9 CA Jet Pursuit.  Two of them had the right price, but no stock.  The other two had the items, but at the higher prices.  Sigh...
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,270
    Thank the maker for the Online store inventory site, otherwise I would have wasted a lot of time looking for the Ultimate batmobile for 99 and the Scuttler for 30. A few stores had them at that price, but no inventory.

    The Walmarts in my area still have it for $99 and the store where I got mine still has the same 6 I left on the shelf.

    All other clearance except for the Star Wars buildable figures and Lashina's tank seem to be gone. I found one Batman v. Killer Moth Mighty Micro hidden behind a slightly bigger non-clearance set.

    That is wonderful,  I would get another one,  box damaged for the one i got and the store near me are gone,  or i can't find it at the stores while brickseek show in stock!

  • BumblepantsBumblepants Sofia BG/Dallas TXMember Posts: 5,655
    Got a Krennic Shuttle for $35 and the City Bulldozer Break-in for $23. Lots of good parts in the Bank for that price and the bulldozer is nice design.

    did not.

    But maybe a viewer of this thread did. IDK.

    EDIT: Nevermind. It was the scuttler.

    I thank my awesome God I checked my Wal-Mart app before heading into work. I went by that same Wal-Mart afterwards, just 10 hours later, and the clearance section was cleared out of Lego! There must have been way over 100 sets between the Mighty Micros, Friends, Micro Fighters, creator sets, buildable figures, and such. All but 4 buildable figs and a Juniors sets were taken.

    Happens to me a lot too: luckily, the stuff had only been marked down and moved sometime after 10pm the day before because I checked before I went to sleep. I just got a lucky break. Persistence will pay off. Keep it up!
