    Wal*Mart price adjustment
    [Sal | 09/17/05]

         I picked up some stuff I had on layaway from WM. Figs of course. Well, they gave me the price break of $4.77 down from $5.88, so I saved $5.95 there. The lady told me that the refund was good for figs purchased dating back to MAY!!! Well, my fiancee just happened to have a receipt with her from a previous layaway. I asked the lady if I could get the difference on them. She said to check with customer service. I did, and low and behold they gave me the difference back! This was a transaction done last month! I got back $4.53. Roughly 50 cents each for the 9 figs I had bought. So folks, if you've saved you're old receipts from WM, take them back and see if they'll do a price adjustment. You may just get some money back!

He also reports that the store only displays 30 at a time, so if you see the shelves empty you should not despair. And last but not least, the packs with Yoda sporting his green saber will be out soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

    [Pete | 09/12/05]

         Hello friends, I am reaching out to the Star Wars Community in hopes to get their support in the fight against Diabetes, particularly Juvenile Diabetes (type 1). Last year my son was diagnosed with this disease and after that we decided to help raise money for a cure. Since then we participated in the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes to support the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to help find that cure. This year with approval from Lucasfilm, we are allowed to feature Darth Vader along with our mascot, the Chrisosaurus Rex on a special T-Shirt to help raise those funds. Please check out TheJawa.com for all the details on how you can help and get a cool limited collectible to boot! Thanks for your time, Chris DelVecchio - TheJawa.com
