    KB toys: buy on get one half off on Sat- 6/2/07

    Possible repost:

    Just came from a local KB, there were several signs for Buy-one-get-one-HALF OFF? for Transformers products with the date 6/2/07.

    The foolish children (kb workers) behind the counter were clueless to give further details, didn't have time to seek out management for further intel.
    There was very few TF products on the racks except the protoforms.
    Saw a nice 4 foot Optimus Standee in the front of the store.
    This is the same store that had Robot Heroes, real gears & Legends on the pegs last week, but would not sell them at the register. They promptly have pulled them since then.

    With KB's escalated prices from retail, this could still be a bargain.

    You might want to call your local KB, if you still have one and get details, but one might assume this may be chainwide.

    The only thing my KB has been good for is the micromaster combiners. Besides that, they've been useless since Machine Wars, so I don't even bother anymore

    Yeah, I will have to call my local KB Outlet to see if this is going on there. Don't want to drive the twenty or so minutes to get there, to see they have nothing.

    They never have anything current. The only exception I can recall to this was them carrying the Sideswipe Comm.

    Yeah, I had no intention on hitting KB on Saturday.
    With Walmart, Target, & now TRU.
    But B.O.G.free could be good for some of us.

    I haven't seen any KB's in a while, period. I think all the ones around here went out of business last year!

    Considering the markup on KB merchandise, you can pretend instead like you are getting three for the same price at Walmart :p

    Just called a friend of mine who's a KB co-manager. They have signage, but theirs states Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off. Is this maybe what you saw? Buy 1, Get 1 Free is kind of hard to see KB doing. Or anyone else, either.

    Probably.
    The signs were all hand written.
    And the fools behind the counter were no help either.

    signage

    kbs all got a packaged of signs a few weeks ago , with popular toy lines with the buy one get one 50% on them. only some of them are to be used right now. sounds like whatever store had the TF sign up , put up whatever signs were in the package. as of now there is no plans for a BOGO sale on TFs

    Was the 6/2/07 date the begin or end on the sale signs? When I worked KB the signage was to be pulled before the end date...

    My KBs had most of the deluxes when I was there last Saturday, they had a stand with them on it in the front of the store.

    If they have the $12.99 price tag for deluxes, then one at half is basically the same as TRU/Walmart/Target prices.

    This is the key point. Buy one get one free would be worth noting, but at $13.00, buy one get one half off just brings the price of 2 to essentially $20, the regular price everywhere else. They had a similar deal for SW figs recently, but that was actually worth it since at $7 they're basically the same price as everywhere else. Ordinarily it wouldn't matter as they rarely have any decent SW figs either, but I actually found the most recent wave there before anywhere else. :sly:
