Default Well that was disappointing

Stopped in at Target to see if there was any Series One yet. Low and behold I spot two sealed boxes of Prizm. Haven't seen any of these at a store in well over a month. However, no price rings up. Manager spends 10-15 minutes trying to figure out the price. Even has me show him where I got them. For a few seconds he's almost going to sell them for $19.99, since they were among the blasters. I've been telling him (& the checkout girl) that they usually sell for around $3/pack, so about $70 for each box.

He then talks to another manager, and their final decision is to not sell them at all; at any price. Wouldn't even let me put a hold on them to come back later when they do have a price. Probably will never see them again.

They did give me a $3 apology coupon though

One box had a Kyrie Green and the other had a Kobe USA Green & Lillard Green!

It's ok though, at least you scored a free Pepsi & King Size KitKat!

Yeah I had advised that, but I wasn't sure if the UPC on the pack would be any different than the box. At the end, they didn't want to do anything until Excell came back in.

For future reference, open the boxes and buy the packs. The retailers generally don't have the box UPC, just the packs.

You get a bonus for being honest. Karma will pay you back.

Some of the comments in this thread give you an idea of who the next scams might be coming from.
