Found one WM with like 8 boxes of CMF series 5. I bought 70. Got about 70 series 8 and 17 series 7 all for $1 each.
Found 4 #8095 grieveous fighters, 1 $79 QAR, and found 5 #7187 Escape from Dragon's Prison's.
Saw one WM that had 4 or 5 #8971 Agents 2 helicopters from 2009 but they were full price so I passed.
Now that's some serious hunting! I've hit up 5 Wal-Marts all within a 45 minute one way drive and am happy with my haul but nothing like yours!
What else did you stuff your car with?
Cool Cruisers at 50% off is a great buy. Congrats. I'm looking for Hillside House. I like to have 3 so I can build the 3 models at once. (This is a sickness my friend infected me with).
then found luke's landspeeder for 12 bucks...a modest find but was happy to pick it up
Got excited and took one over to the scanner where it brought up the price of...... $69.97.
I hate my Walmart.
My Walmart is even loaded up on those as well. In fact, I think combined with the Quinjet, over half the aisle is taken up by them. It's quite depressing really. I've been going back each day... waiting for some sort of discount. You have to imagine they try to get rid of them at some point.
At other, normal, Walmarts? It's usually 1-2 weeks (more towards 2) I believe as the standard from when the clearance first began.
If you are looking to score big on items to turn around and sell then it is debatable as to how much gas and time you are willing to spend...
To be honest the WMs by me could have had tons on clearance, but I know last year that was not the case, nor was in the middle of the year when I think they also had a massive clearance in some stores so I just sleep better knowing that each time I have checked before nothing was there on sale.. saves me a ton of time and gas money IMO.
Ignorance is bliss sometimes :-)
I was at that Bearss walmart on Monday and didn't see any recycling trucks. I guess some stores still have even more discount stuff in the back they haven't put out.
So I suppose you haven't seen any 50% republic frigates around here have you? I'll drive a bit for that.
That Bearss/DM one had only 1 of the other sets they had except the 3 Recycling Trucks and about 20 of the Captain America cycle.
Nope. No Frigates up my way. I'm close to the Lutz WM on north DM. Got my frigate there for $79 back in September. Haven't seen it anywhere near me since then.
Granted if it was 100% business and 0% pleasure you may think differently.
There's also a huge amount of LEGO being returned all week and put back onto shelves.
There's a few stores I know of with a big inventory, but the inventory does not consist of the discounted ones.
Returns and misplaced sets aside . . .
Again those who can, great, but some do not want to waste gas or their time.
So I'd say it's not moving because its ugly and overpriced. :P
