Thread Details

I know this is a big YMMV, but I saw last week that my walmart clearanced the Imperial Shuttle for $54 and the Assault Carrier for $69. I bought the last one of each and then looked online and saw someone else posting here but it didn't get a lot of interest. Then today in the store, the price on the empty shelf was marked $30 and $35. Now, it didn't look like the store got any more stock, so I don't think this was a manager's special. I was able to do a return/rebuy and get both cheap! One of these is a 1200 piece set and the other is a 900 piece set!

I wouldn't suggest running to walmart since then you'll get mad at me because you drove 50 miles to buy something that doesn't even have HDMI. But if you're in walmart, you should check, and use a price checker since lots of walmarts aren't quick to update prices.

Check the tie fighter advanced prototype 75082 while you're at it since the sticker was marked something like $11 (but my walmart was sold out--buy an extra of these and sell it to me for cost + shipping, please!!!). I mean the 350 piece set, not the 100 piece mini build.

May the force lead you to good deals!

Someone pmed me and said their store was out but also had the prices lowered to these prices. They're going to try to do a ship to in-store and return/re-buy.

The Lego Star Wars Imperial Shuttle 75094 is item # 42910925. The Imperial Assault Carrier 75106 is item # 42910912.

Walmart also has the Star Wars Box Busters Death Star Item # 44732704 for $1.50 (was $13.59) B&M YMMV.

This is not Lego, but it's a deal that I found. I didn't know if it deserved it's own thread because the reviews are just ok. If someone wants to make a separate thread that's alright. The local Walmart had about 10 in stock even though brickseek showed out of stock.

How do you get the return / rebuy thing to work? At the moment you pick it up, just be straight with them about what you want to to do and they'll do it? Is any deception involved? Smilie

Well, I did a return rebuy as a price match at the same store I bought them from. So I don't think it was deceptive.

But some think you can do the same thing by doing an online ship to store purchase. You go to pick it up and then return it immediately. Basically if you do a return, the store then has it as inventory and will sell it as the store's price. If they let you rebuy it, you'll get it at the cheap price. I honestly don't know if the whole sequence is true or not (I don't know if it works like it was suggested to me). My store doesn't do ship to store. I don't know that it's deceptive, but it seems really weird because the stores are selling it so much cheaper than online.

When I did it, was mostly honest. I told them that my friend (the SD poster) got x item at y price. I further said that my local store wouldn't price match so I bought it at the full price store and was hoping they would let me return it and rebuy at the sale price. Did it twice with success.

Ok I just ordered one and am having it shipped to a store that is out of stock but listing the clearance price on the price checker site. Says it won't arrive until June 3rd tho! I hope they will still be showing the low price at that point.

Same thing happened to me with they Imperial Transport Ship. I bought it on clearance at $69.00 there was 3 left, stayed that way for 2 weeks. My brother asked me to get him one, so I grabbed the last one at $69. Two days later the tag dropped to $45. They let me return and rebuy that that price almost 3 weeks later.

I tried this, but they cancelled my order saying they could not fulfill it.
