Transformers fans and bargain hunters got lucky on Sunday April 5 and Monday April 6. Thatâ€™s when you could get either (or both) of the above Transformers Animated Play Set 2-packs for 80% offâ€”or $4.99.
Yep, thatâ€™s right. A brand new toy, exclusive to Target and only in the store for less than 1 month at 80% off.
Evidently this had to be a goof. Thereâ€™s no way they would sell these at that price, intentionally anyway. Using the nice â€œFind It At A Target Storeâ€ link, I located a nearby store that showed them in-stock and at lunch a buddy and I drove on down.
I picked up the last one of each setâ€”theyâ€™ll make great presents. But I can say, they were priced at $4.99 and they were sold out.
Rumors are flying today that the price has been adjusted to $22.99, but Iâ€™ve not been able to confirm that. The Target.com site still shows them at $4.99.
My guess, they were supposed to be discounted by $4.99. Most of the other Transformers product is currently 20% off. An computer glitch or human error accidentally reversed the numbers and a lot of people got lucky.
