Vine? I forgot to check my email the day that was offered and missed out... again... I also failed to check the day Giants was offered to Vine members.

Yay! I won the glow-in-the-dark Rattle Shake! Given their approach with effectively one code printed on the outside of the bag, I didn't have high hopes for this one. So pretty excited that I actually got it!

I went to TRU yesterday. They were having a Buy 1 Get 1 40%.off sale. I wanted to pick up two Swappable figures, but it turns our that sale make 2 figures like $28.50 total before tax. Essentially it just removed their artificial mark-up.

^I've only taken advantage of that "sale" to pick up their Legendary figures. Even then I have to do it online and make a order large enough to receive "free" shipping. Otherwise it's hardly worth the bother...

With Walmart matching TRU's BF swapforce price this Friday, I am not sure I can keep myself from buying it...

yeah, I think I'll go in this weekend to get Swap Force. Hoping it stacks with my Frito Lay coupon.

Anyone else on here with SF on both PS3 and PS4? What is your take on the differences between the two.

I don't know if it's been brought up yet but Gmail has "dot blindness" and effectively allows you to use the same email address multiple times to enter the contest without having to make a bunch of throwaway accounts. [email protected] and [email protected] are effectively the same email address but the Frito-Lay site will see them as two different addresses. So noname, no.name,no.n.ame, etc etc can all enter in the same day but if they send you a confirmation email it will still get to you.

I am weak and picked up swapforce for $27 at Walmart. It's already on sale for $37 and I had a $10 off fritolay coupon. I couldn't pass it up for $27 with no lines to wait in.

Went and picked mine up. Of course the Frito Lay coupon wasn't in the system so a manager came to override it.

Can't beat $27

That's weird. Mine scanned for the 360 version without any issues.

Target.com has swap force for $37. It looks like amazon will probably have it up for $37 in about 45 mins as it's in the lightning deals.


TRU is doing a one day sale today. B1g1 free all giants and adventures single figures. I guess it's time to get lightcore hex.

I saved mine - I just don't know where I put them!

That didn't stop me from visiting WM this morning to pick up 2 copies - one for the Wii and one for the DS3. Even if I don't give them the DS3 copy it was still less expensive than purchasing 3 characters separately with one being "exclusive" to that starter. I'm a bit surprised more people didn't think of that and get the DS3 version for just that reason.

If I manage to find the coupons today I *may* go back to see if they'll take the coupon post purchase.

re: Skylanders, Anyone?

Is the PS4 version so much better looking than the 360 that it's worth a double dip? I picked one up this morning on a whim since it was sitting there. I forgot my FL coupon at home, unfortunately.

Snagged a 3DS one on Amazon for $37 and picked up the last WiiU version at Walmart for $37.

I'll be taking the two I got at TRU back this weekend, and with that credit (around $140), I'll pick up the Mario/Luigi WiiU Bundle.

I noticed TRU has a bunch of Legendary Bouncer figures. Re-release? Want to pick one up, but need something to pair it with for the B1G1 offer.

re: Skylanders, Anyone?

I found my coupons! Went back to WM, repurchased using the coupons, then returned the 2 games using the original receipt. That saved an additional $21.80 (including tax) for Wii and 3DS copies with a total for both versions after coupon of $60.66. I'm now happy I didn't take advantage of the Lightning Deal from Amazon this morning! Both coupons scanned without issue.

Should have bought two and returned one. B1g1 free is today only.

re: Skylanders, Anyone?

TRU has a mix-n-match sale today in store on SwapForce Figures and Giants Figures where any 3 are $35.

Thought about getting Legendary Night Shift, Legendary Free Ranger, and Magna Charge, but I didn't.
