Registered here just to tell everyone "thank you" for sharing the info regarding Target's sale. I've been wanting to play this game, and this gave me a good excuse to go buy two core sets.
I found the game in the board games & puzzles section, and it was indeed on sale for $30. The cashier (he was new) didn't know anything about the $5 off coupon, but, after being called over, the manager knew exactly what I was talking about and immediately pulled out a coupon sheet from next to the register.
Bingo, bango, bongo, I'm out the door with two X-Wing core sets for $53.18, total savings of $29.98 over MSRP.
Thanks for the heads-up!
I also picked up 3. After my target card discount and tax they came out to about $25.50.
Another happy customer here. X-Wing has been tempting me for months and I thought I'd successfully resisted until I saw news of this sale! $25 is just too good to pass up. I grabbed the two starters with the best looking miniatures (those X-Wing cannons can be aimed in some strange directions…) and asked about the coupons. The cashier had no idea about the scan sheet but when asked the manager very helpfully, and happily I might add, furnished the scan sheet. She asked if I worked at Target because I knew about the sheet but I said I just heard about the coupons from some friends. No problems at all. Many thanks, gentlemen! The starters may end up being my Christmas present, but we'll see if I can convince my wife to buy me the expansions too…
If you are sitting on the fence, buy them and just don't open them for awhile. If you change your mind you can return them, if not you just scored a great deal and don't have to worry about shipping. Tell your wife it's Black Friday for what you really want, just a week early. :)
Now, who is in Northern Virginia and wants to teach me how to play?
I bought 2 cores from Target for retail because my FLGS was out and they were hosting a tournament the day after I demoed the game and got hooked.
I bought 3 more cores with this sale and returned 2 for full price! Online prices without the shipping or waiting.
I love this game but I think it is somewhat invisible at the mass market level without any advertising.

Playing X-Wing & LCGs in Las Vegas, Nevada!
I just bought mine yesterday, and if I'm out again today, and if I'm out today, I might just pick up another.
The deal at Target is what finally made me go out and buy the core. It was too good of a deal to pass on. Now I have the makings of at least two good armies this way depending on how I want to go with them.
Do you even listen to you're self when you talk?
I drift in and out.
They've been priced at $26 at several online retailers since launch, but $25 with a coupon and no waiting is pretty good. Too bad there are no Targets near me.
If your a starwars junkie there is a starwars model kit groupon today…Definitely nott in x wing scale ..butt still a nice deal…Never give up,Never surrender
