    I apologize if this has been posted already, but Amazon is also having a BOGO-50%-off sale on some (by "some" I mean "ten") Transformers: Buy 1, Get 1 at 50% off

    Has anybody tried getting a price adjustment for things they bought before the sale started? I just picked up OP on Saturday and of course Astrotrain was there and I passed. Would love to find him again and get him for free to boot.

    He wouldn't be free though, in that scenario. With BOGO50%Off, two leaders would be $50+$25 = $75/2 makes them $37.50 apiece (25% off). (Not trying to sound like a jerk, just don't want you getting stoked only to get bummed at checkout.) :) 

    IMO, it's not worth stressing out over the other size classes too much, because 20-25% Off sales happen almost quarterly at Target, thankfully.

    The Voyagers are where the sweet spot is right now, because between being the $20 price AND BOGO50%, they come out to BOGOFree (Or 50% off each...)

    I paid $108 and change for Omega from Target but that's because I had an extra 10% off that most don't have unless your redcard anniversary date is around the time of sale when it's available online. Otherwise I believe some people were saying they paid around $115 on Bestbuy with some kind of coupon in their email?

    Oh you meant in 2020 not 2019, my bad. I can't say haven't followed since I got mine, though I am starting to believe owning 2 of him would be nice since both his modes are great.

    Those DPCI will work in the sense that when an employee uses their 'My Device' to pull an item # it will just automatically convert itself to the assortment dpci they use based on the price point for that line. You can ask them to see if there is any backstock locations and to check them for exactly what you want so long as they understand what it is. Not everyone who works there is going to be toy savvy and you can ask any employee to do this for you, happens to me a lot.

    This gem got lost in the Target conversations going on, but thanks much for this deal. I got my $15 amazon credit last night, just a few days after downloading the app and uploading some photos. This one definitely deserved more highlighting and is still available.

    Hey thanks a lot for this. Did you get a notification/confirmation anywhere in the Photos app or Amazon's main app that you were getting the $15 credit or did it just appear via email a couple of days later? I just did it but didn't see any confirmation and just wanted to be sure.

    I got mine a full day later. I Downloaded the app, then uploaded pictures and checked that link for eligibility which it would just say I'm not eligible so I thought it wasn't gonna work and then on Friday (I did it thursday) it showed up via email.

    Thanks! Well, that will make things difficult for sure. How are you guys planning on searching for Earthrise before hitting every store?

    Well.....Target customer service has just gone to the top for me. Went to a couple of stores getting price adjustments for stuff I got earlier. Picked up Astrotrain and a Red Alert plus Came back with an extra $25 dollars in my pocket in refunds.

    Check the number of stocks. Or call them up and see if you can get a helpful associate. Otherwise, you'll just have to go to the store.

    I attempted to purchase the McAdam wave Megatron and Shockwave. They wouldn't ring up, said not on sale until 6/1. Managers refused to sell to me, said they legally can't. I complained and got a $10 gift card, and they may be on hold for me, except one of the rude managers argued with the nice one "that's only a 24 hour hold." I have a photo and will give feedback. After I try and use my gift card tomorrow on Cyberverse Quint, who I have dubbed Chief Justice.

    So messed up, the street dates are ridiculous and these ones make even less sense.

    Same happened to me. Couldn’t buy the Maccadam figures. I don’t blame the store, it’s not their fault, and they were apologetic about it.

    I think the issue is that this round of figures, while being the same toy as the first wave, are labeled “Cyberverse Bumblebee,” which if I recall from the Toy Fair presentation is the revised name of the show. And I’m guessing those Bumblebee-branded toys (while just bring the same toys as the original waves) weren’t supposed to ship until June.
