Had to cancel the BB-8 playset order and reorder it again.   They tried to trick me - but they have again reduced the price. Now we are at $84.76.   :kar:

That's crazy. I wonder if it automatically goes down until the number of orders meets a target for a date deadline or how that works. They can't be making money of the set at under $90 per, and it re-enforces that Hasbro can't make any money of playsets. I think that's wrong - I just think they need to be a lot better than this thing.

All I know is the more I cancel my orders , the more the price goes down.  Maybe I have found a loop hole in amazon's programming .

I am going to buy a Porsche from Amazon this way. Just keep cancelling until I can get it for $10.

My two 6" Black Series ERGs were down to $19ish.... Now $29.99 each again. Why, why,why am I so cheap. LoL , I should have at least purchased them and played the CJ game of canceling my order every 12 hours as the price drops, until it doesn't.
Oh well  :mad0218:

Actually DarthDerek it was often 2 seconds.  I would place the order and then reload the cart to find out it went down by 2 cents.  So I would replace the order and then cancel the old order.  It worked for me. I think the algorithm looks for cancelled orders and lowers the price immediately in hope the buyer will respond.  Worked on me. I kept on buying and cancelling.    :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

I wouldn't worry - ERG is a repack in the next wave so it shouldn't be too hard to get even at retail - eventually.
