While shopping at Target today, I received a coupon with my receipt for $5.00 off any $30.00 Hasbro Star Wars purchase. This wasn’t the result of buying some Star Wars items, it printed up even though I didn’t buy anything toy related at all. With all the new exclusives hitting Target, savings like this will definitely come in handy. So keep an eye on those Target receipts!
Today I was able to score the new Hoth Box Sets at Target, and was told by a manager that there was a limit of two per customer. If anyone else has experienced this or can back this up, please share your thoughts in the forums.
