    Never was in-stock. Just the listing being active means it's getting ready to be in-stock as we get closer to the July release date. Put the item in a registry or have it notify you when it's in-stock. Otherwise, just wait for the release date and take your chances.

    Did the Target listing for Skywarp and Thundercracker always have the image of them? I checked today and noticed the picture was there but the other day there wasn’t one.

    Can anyone help me out. I pre-ordered something from Target just to get free shipping on some other items, but ended up with promo credit from amazon and want to order from there. Is there a penalty if I cancel my target pre-order since it was part of the order for free shipping?

    All my pre-orders from the sale a few months ago were cancelled last month. Target is so stupid pinging the card you use every month. My target card got "upgraded" to a master card without me even asking for it. So the old card was canceled and the ordered pinged it and canceled. All without me doing anything, or paying attention to it. So I had to contact Target to complain. Of course they couldn't turn the order back on. I did get a $10 gift card, and if I order any of the items again they will honor the lower price, but I'll have to reference my ticket. The main problem now is most of those items are sold out. So I have to decide if I want to wait until they come back in stock again... (could be months after they actually come out). I don't want to wait forever for Overload to finish Devastator... What a pain in the ass.

    I've adopted the practice of loading a target giftcard and saving it to the site and using that for preorder. Saves me the pain of them cluttering up my card activity.

    I got a physical letter about the transition to the MC and called them to tell them not to do it. Don't take this the wrong way, but the problem is clearly you not paying attention.

    I'll make sure to do this in the future. Good recommendation.

    The real problem is the account is set up under my wife, so she wasn't paying attention. I can't fight that though. Tempted to take over the account though just to keep track of it like others.

    It was my redcard. Target decided to upgrade my redcard to a mastercard redcard without asking me (or maybe like above, my wife didn't notice).

    I just don't understand why Target's system works like it does, and the other half a dozen places I've ever ordered from doesn't try to ping your card every month, only when the order goes through.

    I also got a new MC Target card and had to update the payment on my orders. As soon as I updated my orders with the new card, the prices went back to normal MSRP. So, I had to contact them and get them to update the BOGO50 for the pre-orders.

    I was going to switch it from my debit card to my redcard to not tie up $120+ every week for 3 days. But once they said I would lose the bogo50 I said hell with it it wasn't worth fighting over it...and left it alone.

    At least you guys didn't use PayPal cash balance/debit card...

    Target not only runs your card every 30 days on the dot, they also hold the funds for the full 30 days if you use PayPal debit, lol.

    Target is super annoying with their system for pre-orders. My card gets pinged every 8 days, The hold last 7 days. To make matters worse I’ve moved since placing the initial scrapper/overload order and can’t fix the address. Luckily I moved 4 blocks from my old house and was able to retrieve my scrapper delivery with the help of my old neighbors. Now I just hope I can be so lucky whenever Overload decides to ship. Then the icing on the cake! I was charged the partial amount for scrapper, which I’m cool with, but the ongoing weekly ping still hits for the full order.

    Hmm. According to target.com, these are the store “near me” that have Skywarp/Thunder cracker in stock. I am in MD. YMMV. But maybe this will help someone out. I recognize Wisconsin and California locations.

    Makes sense, someone found it in Fremont, CA last night (front page news). He had to ask them to bring it from the back but yeah, stock is trickling out now.

    Still zeros around me though.
