Use Google. Researching for yourself tends to work well.

I tried calling one of the good wills and they said they get new stuff everyday and they dont check there stocks. THATS WHY IM ASKING PEOPLE CAUSE I ALREADY DID WHAT YOU TOLD ME!! Jeez you people get angry at me for not doing research. Why else would I be asking this its because I already did my research I already asked stores. I wanna know people from new york citys views so I dont have to walk 5 miles to a store that dosnt have anything! Im asking so I can find people from new york city who have been to certain stores to recomend it to me.

Thrift stores are not magic. It's not like Santa Claus is secretly stocking one thrift store with awesome blasters. You have to repeatedly hit every store you can, whenever you have time, and be prepare to hit ten stores in a row with nothing at all before you find anything. I have gotten some of my favorite blasters from thrift stores, but I've also hit five stores in one day and come home with absolutely nothing. If someone finds a NIB ultimator and three vulcan chains at a store on Wednesday, that does not at all effect what will be donated to that store in the future. Figure out which stores are reasonable for you to check, and check them every couple of days until you get sick of it. You may get lucky, you may not, but that's how thrifting works,

Specifically, make friends with whoever works in the "New Donations Sorting" area. Grease their palms a little bit. They aren't a public official, so bribery's not illegal.

Its a good point but the good will that I went to for the first time today ripped me off and were not good on the phone the worst part is they happen to be not white and im not being racist im noticing there behavior.. There just fitting the stealing and ripping people off sterotype and its just not my fault there gloomy and rip you off when they have the chance kind of people. So I dont think making friends at that store is an option. If you really want details on the story just tell me or private message me.

They sold me a blaster that had two price tags 2 dollars and 20 dollars they told me it was the 20 dollar price. I asked what the orignal price was somewhere else and they said 45. I paid it and went home it was a dart zone blaster that was a quick reload cylinder with 18 darts but it didn't come with the darts when i got it. When I got home I realized I was ripped off And that at target they were selling the same blaster with the 18 darts for 15 dollars brand new when mine came with 0 darts and wasn't brand new for 20 dollars. And remember they said the original price was 45 dollars. So telling me 45 dollars was a lie and the target price is actually 15 dollars brand new and with the darts and this good wills price is 20 dollars used without the darts. So they lied to me about the price and then when I called to complain there like: Were not really sorry we lied to you we can give you a store credit or we can take off money from the blaster that you paid for. I told her someone told me the original price was 45 dollars and she's like oh well thats targets old prices ours is half. And i'm like no targets price is 15 dollars less than yours and she's like well I don't know to bad. So I get my mom to go back there and speak to these jerk offs cause she has been shopping longer than me and knows a thing or two or something so she goes. And give me a call saying there manager was a stubborn little bitch and argued to her that she was wrong and didn't give her a lowered price on the blaster like the women over the phone said she would give. All the manager gave was a store credit. I just remember this blaster is called the: Dart Zone Legendfire. and thats my story of how a bunch of black people acted like stereotype sassy stealing black people its a shame that they were full of shit. Good Will more like Steal Will. Thats my story hope you liked it because I didn't.

...I paid it and went home...

 

This outcome is entirely your fault.  If you found the blaster to be worth the $20 price tag in the store, then you really have no recourse.  YOU made the poor decision, without knowing anything about what you were buying.

You have a massive sense of entitlement and you expect everyone else to do your research for you. Neither of those will help you get ahead in this hobby, or in life. It's hilarious you're upset a random goodwill employee didn't know how much a legendfire costs when you, someone who has an interest in foam blasters, also had no idea. No one forced you to make a bad purchase. Nobody ripped you off. You picked up an item with a price tag on it, the cashier charged you the amount on the price tag, and you took the item home. Then when they gave you a store credit to make up the difference (something which was a courtesy to you and theynhave no legal or ethical obligation to do) you went on the internet and racially profiled them and called the manager a bitch. The problem here is you.

A'ight, this is terrible. Thanks to everyone who gave advice, and especially thanks to everyone who told this dude off.

 

the worst part is they happen to be not white and im not being racist im noticing there behavior..

 

You are being racist. Way to make excuses. Take a couple months off to think about your massive, unwarranted sense of entitlement and your truly embarrassing racist outburst here.
