Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Thursday April 10th, 2014

Several people brought this set to my attention. Target is selling their exclusive for about 65% off. So it is better than the Eagle thinger from yesterday.

75013 Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon) is $16.79 from $49.99. WHAT!?!

It is in-store only but you can use the “find in a store” button to locate some near you. Apparently most of the stores near me still have them. I might make a jaunt tonight and see how many I can buy. I really shouldn’t though…

Part out is $87.87 or 5.51x with RedCard discount. This is the kind of situation where you will need to purchase it online for an in-store pickup and then go get it when you get a confirmation. So for me, I will have to pay Philly tax on all of them even if some of the Target locations are outside of Philly.

To maximize your purchases, you’ll need to start high with the quantity and search stores near you. I started with 10 and worked my way down until some locations started showing availability. You will not be able to see specific store quantities on a store by store basis. I suppose you could call the store or try to buy more at Customer Service when you go pick up the sets you bought online.

Status update as I decided to buy them while I was writing this:
I got 5 from one store 5.4 miles away
I got 4 from one store 1 mile away
I got 4 from one store 8 miles away
I got 3 from one store 3.1 miles away
I got 3 from one store 9.9 miles away
I left a bunch in New Jersey and any stores with 2 or fewer.
