    Some stores might have the ha sideswipe and bumblebee exclusives still. THose are a bargain at 8 and 12 (i believe that was the sideswipe price) if they do another 50% off.

    Some kmarts are hit and miss. I picked up a legends ravage a little while back for 2$ but the one by me still had a few rotf voyagers full price.

    Interesting. That seems to be a bit outside their clearance schedule (usually happens on thursday) but it might be something special going on for after christmas.

    Yesterday was the last day for your purchases to count towards the 10% back rewards program.I don't know how long before the actual "rewards dollars" will be available to use though.

    It's common practice. The day after Christmas, they put almost everything in the store "on sale". The reason is so they can give less back on gift returns. If you don't have a receipt, they only give you what it rings up as. So someone buys it at regular price, gives it to you as a gift, you return it for the sale price, Target gets to keep the difference. Free money for them.

    I work in retail so I deal with returns alot myself. Without a recepit the store is just taking your word that you even bought it from them so you should be lucky they take it back at all. I bet you a good chunk of returns after xmas arent done at the stores the items were really purchased at.

    I worked at a small Walmart over a decade ago. Customers were always upset when we would scan something they were returning and it wasn't in the system. "Take it back anyway". Customers were upset when they werent right in this case.

    According to my knowledge, toy clearance markdowns were to happen the night of the 23rd. The only transformers toys scheduled for clearance are the already marked-down Target exclusive deluxes and the Ark Playset with Sentinel Prime bonus sets, as well as the Kreo Ratchet and Sentinel Prime. Everything else is continuing to the next set.

    Hmm. Seems a decent price for the ark playset. I wonder how much Ratchet will be marked down to.

    I saw a Kre-o Ratchet yesterday at Target marked down to $13.98,which would be the standard 30% off.Also a lot of the Arks marked down to $20.98,but I'll wait for them to go cheaper before I bite on one of those.

    Same here. I figure there are enough left that some may see the next set of markdowns.

    Depending on the store, Ratchet was marked down long ago. I grabbed two (should have cleaned em out for TFTs) at $5 each and used one $5 off coupon. Damn, this talk about the Ark makes me mad that I forgot to give my extra Ark to TFTs this year.

    On Christmas eve, I was able to get the bonus ark pack for $14.95, then with a $5 off coupon it was only $10. Also I bought kre-o ratchet a long time ago marked down to $9.95 with $5 off coupon to make him $5. Both of these were at target.

    He's been lumped in with the other HA toys now so he'll go on clearance when the rest of them do.

    Nice price drop. I wonder if your store considered it a seasonal toy. Hmm. I might have to check there when I go pick up a few things tomorrow.
