Ya, they went quick last week online as well. I'm convinced people are buy them for $10 from TRU and then returning them to Walmart for a $30 store credit. Just my thoughts :P

I dunno. Last time I tried to return a SW figure at Walmart without a receipt (I lost mine) they wouldn't even give me store credit. They wouldn't take any toys that you can get elsewhere without a receipt. Not sure if this varies by store/manager but this was my recent experience.

Besides the flametrooper was $5 at Walmart at one point. So in theory they would only give you $5 credit as that should be the no-receipt price.

Well, after posting earlier this morning I did have some returns both to Walmart and to TRU.  I returned a couple straight forward receipt returns to Walmart and then said I had one purchase that I could not find the receipt for. They said no problem but only a store credit would be given. I returned 4 flamers that ( like DarthCujo said) I bought from Wally at $5 back in Novemberish. I received a credit of $136, so now I can buy some free at-at drivers from Walmart.ca :P
Plus I received a free 5po ackbar because the Walmart ladies in the toy area were resetting all the pegs and put all the TFA 5po figures($9.98each) on a end cap with a $7.98 price tag banner. I challenged the price with the bar code scanner act , and presto!......works every time  :winking0071:
Plus at TRU, I returned two hover tank drivers and received $19.98 each in return and now have the other two at home that were the ( 1/2 off of the BOGO 1/2 off) $9.98 each figures!
And stumbled on a black series Death Star finally.
Today was a good day in Star Wars Collecting Land...lol

Hey jjreason. ...I like the idea of this thread you started for Walmart,  Amazon , and ToysRUS.  Unfortunately, I can still see the posts for these 3 threads under the 'Recent' section above right...and I don't have to be logged in to see the postings. Scalpers would still be able to read the post if one of these threads is in the 'Recent' section.  Are we to redirect snowtroopers to the 'provincial forums' only in these threads..but not actually mention the deals here in this thread that we find?

For example: Hey guys check out the hard to find item I just found. I've posted under the Ontario provincial forum ...and they are on clearance. (this is an example on what I was expecting from these threads.)

That's interesting - this is in the "outer rim" with the provincials, so I expected the same "permissions" to be in place for the entire area. I'll need to have a look & see if I can adjust it to match the others.  :speechless-smiley-004:

 ya, my one walmart is sticklers about no receipt returns. they let me do it the one time without a receipt and told me i couldnt do that next time. then at the end of the convo the girl repeated it again to me....f off! haha. but the other walmarts i go to never say a word about it and ive returned things for store credit if my receipt is expired and the fig is still hanging around the pegs so i know it will ring up .
 
 just try another walmart if you can. sometimes i realize i dont want things after some months and the store credit works fine for me. good luck!

That sucks.  In my area, they are all $34.xx, even if the shelf tag still says $79.99.
