Big Box Outlet Store (currently transitioning from being known as Pricematters) is offering an extra 50% off all Skylander products they have in stock. Most of these are open box items so they have already been discounted from what you would see at a regular store.
Individual characters are just $3.30 each. You can pick up the following individual characters:
- Skylanders Character Pack, Freeze Blade
- Skylanders Swap Force Character Pack Rubble Rouser
- Skylanders Swap Force Character Pack Stink Bomb
- Skylanders Swap Force Character Pack Trap Shadow
There are also four triple packs you can choose from. Each triple pack is only $7.15, which works out to approximately $2.38 per character. Which of these triple packs are you going to get?
- Skylanders Swap Force Triple Pack (Big Bang Trigger Happy, Star Strike, Anchors Away Gill Grunt)
- Skylanders Swap Force Battle Pack (Fiery Forge, Bumble Blast, Knockout Terrafin)
- Skylanders Swap Force Triple Pack (Heavy Duty Sprocket, Twin Blade Chop Chop, Scorp)
- Skylanders Swap Force Triple Pack (Mega Ram Spyro, Blizzard Chill, Zoo Lou)
All of these are open box and that is why they are so discounted. I tried to price compare with a regular retailer to see how much you are saving. At Best Buy, Skylanders Swap Force Triple Packs retail for $25.99 including the one with Gill Grunt (that I have linked to). Individual characters retail for $9.99 at Best Buy and many other retailers. At the Big Box Outlet store, you are getting them for 1/3rd their retail price. These prices are really great. Though some people may shy away from open box items, I figure that I am going to open the box anyway so why not save some extra money by buying those items?
I have never played Skylanders, but it sounds like my kind of game. I love all the fun little figurines that are both collectable and that you use to play the game as well. While I am not big on extra game purchases, I could handle paying a few dollars for each new character I wanted.
There are limited quantities available. The Big Box Store offers free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Underneath that minimum, the cost of shipping depends on where you are shipping. This deal is only available online.
