Yeah I am starting to not like how hot topic does their hot cash. I feel they really limit the funkos you can use it on and time it such that it can't be used on the bigger exclusive items like these boxes.
Really the only Funko limits Hot Cash has is newly released exclusives and the Disney boxes (which is pretty much an industry standard for larger exclusives at that point). You can use Hot Cash on HT Funko exclusives, but it's gotta be an older release - as an example, if Hot Cash were active when metallic Vegito or the recent Kakashi had been released, they would not be eligible for Hot Cash because they were new releases but if you had a $5 off discount tied to your Guest List account you could use it. That's how I got Great Ape Vegeta for $15 last fall - couldn't use Hot Cash (I don't think it was active at the time) but I had two $5 discounts I could stack.
That makes sense that they don't want you to be able to use Hot Cash on brand new items. They know those are going to sell with or without the promotions. Most HT exclusives pops are even selling out without any type of promotion. I think the boxes and items that get restocked are the ones sitting around for a little while (and naturally less popular lines).
Last time the Hot Cash was in effect, I couldn't get Diamond Items either...
Can't remember if it was new so I'm not sure where it falls.
