Re: Amazon Lightning Gold Box Deals 11/11/2013

I love the train but the movie was a failure and I have a feeling I could do better than $65 by the end of the year. Plus I'd have to pay tax now so it would be over $70 which I have seen it go for a few times. I'm hoping for the Goblin set to be close to 50% off, maybe like $53. Hasn't it been pre...

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

While I knew the site was messed up in general , I didn't know whether any specific item I ordered had a valid price or not. Perhaps they were putting many items on clearance and applied that pricing to too many items? Comanche Camp or Stagecoach Escape for $10.99 is a very reasonable sale. Unexpect...

Re: Amazon Lightning Gold Box Deals 11/11/2013

I went for the train at $64.99. 35% off; lots of fairly expensive train-related parts.

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

This is just theft. Have to disagree, this is more like taking advantage of an error not commited by us. On the other hand, people whom buy up all the stocks when ever there are clearances and resell for profits, now that is theft against the people! Knowing something is not supposed to be sold at ...

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

FedEx just dropped off my order! I guess I ordered it early enough that they had already shipped it before they realized the problems. It's an early Christmas here!

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

Just got an email saying that my order shipped! Looking at the tracking information, it appears that it was picked up before 2pm CST Wednesday, and the shipping info was sent to the Fedex mid-morning yesterday. So maybe it went out before they fully realized the problems.

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

Not holding out a lot of hope on this, although my order is still showing as processing. I didn't totally overdo it, so maybe it will slip under the radar. Guess I should have gone for store pickup, by my local Wally usually has terrible LEGO inventory. Glad to hear that some of you have gotten grea...

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

I imagine there are some heads rolling over at Walmart.com this morning. Feel sorry for all the IT folks there. I'll bet someone was updating prices, and didn't properly constrain the update query, and then forgot to check the number of records updated before they committed the result. Interestingly...

Re: Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

They could have been hacked or someone in IT will be in big trouble in the morning. I would hesitate providing or using any cc info if the former is true, it's not just Lego. I wasn't too worried about this. If you're hacking a site to harvest CC info, the last thing you'd want to do is to bring at...

Walmart.com messed up with crazy low pricing

Walmart.com is totally messed up tonight with crazy pricing. Many sets are reduced 60-80% to $10.99, while tons of other sets are showing a price of $369.99.

I just ordered Unexpected Gathering and Mines of Moria, both for $10.99 each. We'll see if they cancel the order or not.

They usually do, and even better, if they don't have it in stock, they'll ship it to you for free!

Re: [USA] Yoyo.com coupon code 25% off

The new costumer thing is completely bullshit. I'm sick of trying to trick them because they don't care about their old costumers. I'll stick to Amazon and Target with their sales, they value my money. I agree. I've had some bad experiences with Yoyo, and their customer service is terrible. I refus...

Samurai Mech for $30.14 is definitely tempting... Thoughts on whether to hold out for a better deal after Xmas?

Re: Wal-Mart LOTR/Hobbit bundle

It's totally unclear from the website whether it's a real bundle or not. I emailed their customer service to ask them. Will post an answer when I get it.
