Let me add that my great friend picked us up copies and the core set wouldn't scam. They gave it to us for $19.99/set!!!

This is going to be highly YMMV as most stores aren't even supposed to be selling them yet, let a lone at half price.

Yeah, it "wouldn't scan" because it is locked in the system to not be sold prior to friday. If AP finds out what the cashier did, he/she can be terminated and a fine imposed for breaking the street date.

Not to mention, I've had items that won't scan before. In both cases , it was because they had been on clearance too long and were pulled from the shelves (only the pull missed one or two).

In those cases, they could see in the system and I was offered the last clearance price that they sold for.

The half price is probably what she found in system as the last price it sold for - with her not knowing the difference between the original core and the new one.

Yeah, the times we try to get stuff that's no longer in the system we're always told that they aren't allowed to sell it because it might be recalled and they have no way to know.

It seems the store would be the one in trouble. Why was it on the shelf to begin with?

Not a hot deal. Even if it was, it's highly YMMV, and even then OP says nothing about how they got it for 30% off.

At the risk of sounding like a right troll, "pics or it didn't happen."

Agreed, no real info here. I don't know what that link is trying to show me, and I'm not even finding the core set on Target's website.

Granted, Target searches have been wonky lately, had a hell of a time ordering the new Infinity stuff for my daughter....

I found a plano box in a Target store (in the hunting and camping section) but it wouldn't scan at checkout. After a little running around by the employees, the store manager just gave it to me for free.

I have no idea what happened. I've never seen Target carry that specific plano so I think they thought it was just some random merchandise that ended up in the store.

Who knows.

Using the logic of this thread, THATS A HOT DEAL RIGHT THERE, EVERYONE... ON TO TARGET!

If you read the 2nd post, it says how we got it for 50% off. Not 30%.

Do you know how many copies they had on the shelf? I'm trying to decide if it's worth an hour drive and a couple hour wait to have a chance of getting one. If each Target only gets 5 or so, that's not good odds. However, if they get 20+, then I'll take those odds and it's worth my time!

Are these the same cards just re-faced that come with the normal x-wing core set?

It seems the store would be the one in trouble. Why was it on the shelf to begin with?

The fine, if imposed, would be against the company for each instance. As far as the cashier selling the item, it could be a term-able offence. The items are hardlocked in the system, so they will scan but a message will display stating they can't be sold until the specific date.
As to why it was on the shelf, who knows. Unfortunately, this is not one of those instances that if a guest finds it, it can be sold.
