The Hobby Lobby internet coupon says "50% Off Plastic Model Kits"
(notice the plural on "kits"). But the verbiage underneath says "you
can get any kit at half the price." So it is unclear to me if this
coupon is only good for one kit, or if it applies to any regular-priced
Anyone know what the HL policy is on this? Thanks!
All the best,
In Colorado, you can go with an armfull if you want to at 50% on
everything. I never had them limit me to one kit. I check 2 out this
morning, the stock was as low as I have ever seen it. They did have
the Polar Lights NX-01 and the Atomic City Merc Capsule which is a
little unusual. I have both so I just passed. 4 more stores to check
out this evening (:>
Funny you ask - I stopped on my way home today, and picked up one of
the 1/32 Cobra rereleases, and another (why not?) of the Dragon 251/1 3
in 1 kits. For the first time ever, the cashier told me it was good on
only one kit. A manager overheard her, and told her to go ahead and
give it on both. I got the impression he was willing to do it because
I was only buying two kits. Of course, you can keep printing coupons
and going back till the cows come home. Never had that happen before,
it used to be all you can carry, no questions asked.
Did see a kick ass 1/12 '69 Z28 I hadn't seen before, other than that,
nothing new that hasn't been reported here. Didn't see any Halifax.
No Halifax in Colorado Springs or Denver. I would say that as long as
I have been going to Hobby Lobby this is the worst I have ever seen
their inventory. I visited 6 stores yesterday and bought nothing.
And, also, as stated above, I never had problems with more than one kit
at the discounted price. (:>
I wonder if the low invntory is a seasonal thing, or more long lasting?
The HL in Bloomington, IL had a pretty good stock last November, but
next to nothing about a month ago (I don't live there - just visit
every six weeks or so). When we visited last month, the store had been
changed around and, like I said, the tock of models was almost
I hate to even say this but the Hobby Lobbys inventory of kits looked
more like Michaels. Otherwise known as, you might as well have
nothing. I hope this is not a change in direction just a momentary
lack of inventory. We will see (:>
It's been a while since they sent me an e-mail with(or without) the
coupons. But I was told it's one models per coupon(don't know how many
coupons at a time). I wasn't looking to stockup. The coupon applies
to all plastic "kits." I do like the selection available but I'll go
to a dedicated hobby shop if I'm looking for specific items.
For the first time I was able to take part in a Hobby Lobby 50% sale. I
am in Pekin, ILL working on a C-45 ( 1:1 scale, by Beech, metal and
fabric construction) and I tried to have a coupon printed at Staples,
but for some reason they could not do it. I went to the Hobby Lobby and
explained what I was going thru and they allowed me get the kits at 50%
off without a coupon. I picked up a Accurate Minatures SBD-3 Dauntless,
SB2U-3 Vindicator, 1/48 Tamiya Sherman, Revell Big Boy and Hudson
now I just have to get them home to Phx.
More long lasting. The store around the corner has not re-stocked military
(air, armor or ship) since June '05. A few new car models, but that's it.
They keep consolidating the military stuff into a smaller and smaller area.
