    I've had the discover card since 1995 and I haven't seen it rejected by any store as far back as I can remember.

    not sure, but my amex isn't accepted everywhere. Too bad because my gas cash back rewards don't apply everywhere in MA.

    I don’t think it’s so bad in the US but it’s pretty much useless outside it and Amex to a lesser extent.

    When discover was new (in the 80s) not many places accepted it, it started out as a Sears (store) card. They've never been in trouble for "business practices" though, at least not that I'm aware. Nowadays 99.9% of places take it. I've also never been turned down and I use mine as my primary card.

    Those Jetfires are gone! Unless you can find the ones that were hidden by other people. I checked out two more stores listed on Brickseek. And nothing.

    I returned the Jetfire I paid $80 for after I found one for $45. The store I returned it to has it listed for $80 even though every other store that is out of stock still has him listed for $45. Strange since prior to me returning the figure, that store had Jetfire listed for $45 but out of stock. However, Jetfire was never actually stocked at that particular store since there was never a shelf tag.

    What store did you find Jetfire at for $45? Best deal I got was 25% off at Target.

    People started finding Jetfire on clearance for $45 at Walmart - started maybe a couple weeks ago?

    It was pretty widespread, but I think they're pretty much gone by now.

    Megalopolis has the radio shack grey one for $43 as a part of their daily deals... too bad they require $180 before free shipping and don’t offer a stacking/pile of loot/holding system of some sort.

    They're definitely not a scam, I've gotten what I've ordered with them in the past. Four Horsemen are partnering with them for some distribution for their Mythic Legions, so I can't see them getting into business with someone like that.

    That's cool, man, but I would say you've been lucky so far. You do you, but buyer beware:

    About Megalopolis Toys...

    And the idea that a company like Mythic Legions partnering with them automatically legitimizes them somehow is laughable because no company has ever made a bad business decision before, right?

    I said it once upthread but I'll say it again:

    If you buy a Jetfire for full price at a Walmart, you can return it and rebuy it at another one that has it priced for $45.

    How does that process work exactly? I’ve only ever done an exchange with Walmart, never a return. I’d have guessed that when your receipt is from another store they wouldn’t honor the return, and even if they did accept the return wouldn’t they be giving you a refund based on its current price at that store?

    So say you bring in one you bought for $80, they give you $45 because that’s what he rings up for in that store and then you wait for them to put it on the shelf and pay $45 for it?

    Walk up and say ‘I just bought this and it had a price drop’ they’ll refund the original amount and then resell it to you (or just give you the difference)
