    In my post above I said Legos...  I know it should be Lego.

    I found the new Star destroyer for $79 and the heavy walker for $74. Most of the Christmas polys were $1.50.

    Are the heavy walkers gonna be worth it?  there's 5 at my walmart

    I was told by a Walmart employee that all stores are getting rid of their price scanners located around the store....that now all employees are going to care the little hand-held devices like Target.  Great... now I have to hunt down an employee so that they can call someone else over to figure out the hand-held.  Just when you thought Walmart couldn't get any cheaper

    I just needed one quick thing. Though that one thing was TLNM. I didn’t know I’d also be walking out with Destiny’s Bounty, but for $79...

    Nice! I looked for that at 2 Wal-Marts around here that said they had marked down the ship to $79, but no luck at either. I've had my eye in Destiny's Boutny ever since it came out, and I would snatch it up at half off in a heartbeat!

    Get the Wal-Mart app on your phone. 99 times out of 100 it will give you the in-store price. Every now and again it will say 'please see an associate for help', but it works almost all the time and has been saving me from running all over the store for a few years now.

    They had 2, but the other one was very poorly taped back together on one end and looked very suspicious. Even the one I got had a box practically beat to a pulp. I opened it immediately when I got home to make sure everything was accounted for. All was good.

    Every now and then I encounter boxes like that. If I really want the set, I'll take it to a customer service rep and open it in front of them while explaining that my situation. If the set is complete and untampered, I go,ahead and buy it. But if it was messed with, I tell the rep that someone is scamming their store.

    Nice grab @Yodalicious! I had the chance right after Destiny's Bounty was released to get it for $90. I passed and have been kicking myself ever since. I'll have to start my Wal-Mart loop now to see if I can track one down at that price!

    The Heavy Assault Walkers finally went to $109 (in store price) in my area according to both Brickseek AND the Walmart.com site, so I went into the store to get one... and they weren't marked down.  Figured since their own site said 'blah blah price in your local store!' I would take it up and see if they would match it.  The app didn't match, but they were able to bring up the website on their own phones and saw it also, so they matched it... Now I just have to wait for the SD to go on a decent sale and I'll be done with TLJ first wave sets...

    I found yesterday that when you scan with the app and it says please see an associate, when you scan it again in a minute it's in the app with the price. It's almost like the first scan activates it. Ymmv

    I found $74 heavy walkers and $79 star destroyers. Not optimistic about getting the bounty for $79, but I got one for $104 from true while back so I can't complain. Especially since I managed to get an ultimate batmobile from Walmart for $45 :)

    Picked up #31063 for $13 today. They had a couple Joker Lowriders for $21 but I bought that set when it first came out and the boxes were pretty well crushed. Still a great price on a fun set.

    I bought the Joker Lowrider last night. Though it was late, I still stayed up to put it together. That's a fun build and a nice completed set.

    I have $100 from Christmas being saved towards a Ninjago City. But, supposedly a store about an hour away from me has four Destiny's Bounty sets for $80. What to do, what to do...

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,377
    That feeling when you're excited to check Brickseek for a possible discount on Destiny's Bounty after some of the previous posts!!!

    Reality when Brickseek slaps you in the face: "No results found in your area."

    I swear my local Walmart's conspire against me!

    ^Yeah, I'm definitely in agreement. I try to avoid Brickseek whenever possible as it makes me go crazy!

    I realized I was searching the wrong SKU. I found a store with 3 of them too far out of my reach, but next door to a buddy of mine. Looks like he'll be able to swing by and check for me this evening. Fingers crossed! The last 5 times Brickseek showed stock on sale, I never found it in person. 

    The good news is the store by my buddy seems to have a LOT of sale items. I may have found the anomaly in my geographical region and can bug my friend to shop on my behalf. We go way back, so I figure I have at least a few weeks worth of annoying him before he cuts me out of his life forever, right?

    I agree. The phantom stock is the worst, especially on a set I want!
    I'm calling a 4th Wal-Mart now about Destiny's Bounty and having them check before driving around for 3 hours looking.

    If they let you get a better than stated deal, fine. The wording just gives them an option to disallow it IMHO. But I am not a lawyer

    Has anyone had luck getting WM to match the price from another store via the app? Every store around me has 75189 listed for $74 except the one who has it in stock, for full price. 
  • jedivalkyriejedivalkyrie Member Posts: 165

    #70906 $21

    No, they do not match other Walmart store clearance prices.

    Ugh, that's the one I was looking for, the only store in my area that "had" them showed 2....but no dice.

    I did grab the Tracker 1 #75185 for $35 so the trip wasn't a total waste.
  • ndisgizendisgize Member Posts: 17
    The Walmart near me, in Orangevale (outside Sacramento CA) had 75172 Y wings (list 60) on clearance for 25, Minecraft crafting boxes for $30, and a few other sets, all half off. They are locked up in a case and not marked for clearance, but the tag underneath them has a clearance price, so, if anyone is in the area, some great deals.

    Chasing phantom stock in a Walmart is the worst.  I always think if I just look around one more isle or behind one more thing I'll magically find it.  Argh...

    Brickseek has made me a lunatic.  Well, more of a lunatic.
    HA!  Exactly how I feel ...  The thrill of the "find" keeps me going, sometimes even for sets that I don't have a primary interest in! 

    I hate clearance time, I have to come up with new ways of preventing my wife from know the extent of my addiction ...

    I need to move to VA.  My stores apparently just don't do clearance.  FO SDs still at full price, and they have 17 of them in stock.  Heavy Walkers just went on sale for 109, and they still have 14 of them in stock... ;_;
  • REG_BREG_B United StatesMember Posts: 7
    I think it all comes down to individual Walmart and shelf space some here by me in the midwest never clearance other will blow it all out when it comes to making more room for new products

    Brickseek got me out looking for two #75189 Heavy Walkers about 20 miles away, but no sign of any.

    However, after 4 Walmarts, I did manage to find:
    #41585 Batman $5 (got 2)
    #76044 Clash of Heroes $5
    #10706 Blue Creativity box $2.50 (got 4)
    #31063 Beachside Vacation $13 (got 2)
    #70906 Joker Lowrider $21
    #75185 Tracker I $35

    Most of the above at Eden Prairie. The only ones I cleaned out were #31063 and #76044.
