I just got my JLU 7 packs (even though the tracking info still says it's in NJ) and it came with another 5$ coupon for any 6 inch Mattel action figure. This new coupon expires 12/20.

Unpack those boxes carefully so you don't miss yours.

Mine didn't come with a coupon. Did anyone else not receive a coupon?

I got one. Combine this with the Target sale and it's too good to pass up.

I didn't get one. I bought over $100 worth of stuff too (2 seven-packs and a Parademon pack). I guess it doesn't really matter; since JLU ended, there is nothing Mattel makes that I want to buy at retail anyway.

I bought two 7-packs and two sets of Parademons. I received two coupons with those figures. 6" Young Justice here I come!

This is the second time I didn't get one. The first time around I bought FIVE JLU 3-packs and got nothing. This time around I bought the JLU 7-pack, and a set of Kalibak & Parademons.

Here's the thing... I find it odd that I was skipped over twice; plus the box in which my figures came was poorly taped. So now I'm wondering if someone tampered with my stuff and it "fell off".

Does anyone know if there is a way to corroborate whether or not you were supposed to get one? Is it listed in your invoice?

Nope, its just an added pack in.

Most likely, whoever is taping the boxes shut has a stack of them at their station and they just need to drop one in before sealing them.

Its not hard to imagine how it gets double dropped in one box and then not at all in the next.

Completely random and no conspiracy here.

For the record, I got one with my last order, but not with this most recent order.

Oh well.
There isn't anything new on the pegs right now anyway so it just would have been wasted on me.

Does anyone know who to contact if we didn't receive a coupon? $5 off could come in handy.

Sweet, I got 2 of them, one from Snout Spout, the other from a replacement GB figure they sent me.

Already used one on another Manhunter from TRU (brings me up to 7 of them). They're already on clearence for $11 so I got him for $6, not bad

Well I have only received 7 of the 8 boxes Im supposed to get- and still only got 1 coupon (though to be fair- some of the boxes were sealed cases of 4 packs..)

So you got a coupon for DC product from ordering MOTU product and I ordered DC product and got no coupon for DC product.

Again, Mattel makes no sense. :?

Some minimum-wage earner in the shipping warehouse probably forgot to put them in all the packages headed out the door.

I'm sure if you called Mattel, someone in customer service would send a coupon to you. Mattel had hundreds of them at its booth at NYCC. I picked up several of them and used them to buy Wave 19 at Target.
