    I actually bought two of those fortnite chests (to use with some nintendo figures) and they just went on sale this week. So I bought two new ones (individual DCPIs on the new reciept) and returned the new ones with my old reciept (one dcpi) and the computer took it, no problems. So its wierd that it didn't work on the Marvel figures... you could probly make them take it with some pushback, especially if you explain why the DCPIs changed, but that's a lot of effort...

    Thanks for the reply! I guess it's hit or miss?

    Well, these were Capt. Marvel figures, but they were marked as "Avengers" on the receipt. But I swear they were actually Capt. Marvel, as there are no new Avengers figures in stores now! :confused:  So maybe they split the series into it's own DCPI? For example, I believe Spider-man and Black Panther figures would have a different DCPI. Ehhh, I don't know.

    But I did push back and I did get the item refunded. It was just irritating to be told, "No, these are not on your receipt". :banghead:  Target has been historically very cool with returns, but now they're really dinging you if you don't have a receipt (when I tried to return the figures without a receipt, they wanted to give me $5.98 ea., representing a ridiculously low clearance price on figures that have NOT been clearanced yet! :banghead:  ).

    There's a $100 limit, it seems, on returns without a receipt. They make you exchange items now (when past that limit). Too rigid and tight these policies be! :mad

    Yeah, I'm one of those people that hands onto just about all my reciepts and will frequently re-buy an item when its on sale and then return it with the old receipt. It looks like all the toy items are now using individual DCPIs so 90 days from now the problem will be gone, but its nice to know going in that the system may be goofy.

    Target's not all that cool... Read their return policies on the .com (because they're for the store level as well). Anything collectible, including action figures and most toys are not returnable if the box has been opened or there's a production flaw and it comes to you broken. (Seriously, read it.) Seems as though they're starting to crack down on returns of stuff like this and cut their losses.

    I can foresee a day when you can't return anything toy related to Target. Hopefully, they'll get a system working with the manufacturers to give people a direct replacement or something.

    Does Brickseek still work for Target? I invariably comes up with "No results found in the searched area" when there are plenty of toys.

    ... Wal-Mart works now? That's nice, at least.

    You have to use the assortment DCPIs (what I have listed in the first post), not the individual figure ones

    Can anyone double check these? It's not finding them when I try to search for the Battle Master or Micromaster DPCI's.

    Edit: never mind, I think it may be Target’s inventory system. They couldn’t see availability even from their own scanners.

    Most of them don't work (even using the assortment dpcis) The rainmakers dcpi *does* work for me, though. So that's strange.

    The DCPI works for me but nothing is in stock for 100 miles. Holding out hope that they become available online.

    Also Red Wing is back up for Red Card holders.

    So Last night I FINALLY got a shipping notice for the springer I preordered back April. (Nothing on galaxy prime yet).

    Today I got a follow up saying it’s back ordered yet when I look at my order it says status is shipped? But back ordered? How in the world can it be both?

    Seeing some chatter on FB that Brickseek isn't working. People punch the codes in and it shows nothing in stock yet they find them on the shelf in store.

    Yeah. I cant depend on brickseek for my Rainmakers. I just tried looking for other things that I saw in store today on brickseek and brickseek is showing out of stock for those as well.

    Why? There are other options out there, but might cost more to procure.
