Boots.com has some good deals on at the moment, including 3 for 2 on new star wars, city and cars:
and they also have some older stuff up to half price:
I'll just wait for the prices to drop by 33% on Amazon for these sets instead.
I guess its probably in place to stop people using Boots as a cash & carry for high value stock for internet stores on bricklink & ebay, so maybe its fair enough, but they should be clearer.
It therefore penalises many of us genuine fans who would easily buy a few copies of the same item as collectors, or who might want to club together with a friend to get copies of the same item.
Having said all that, I wouldn't have bought 3 Millenium Falcons for the sake of saving an extra £10 or so against the current lowest market price. lol
don't forget 3% quidco cash back too
Quidco is great for purchases from companies that Brickset is not affiliated with, but of course, remember to use the Brickset links for those that it is affiliated with ;o)
£88 average price I make that, well done!
7965 MF for £88.66 ea
7962 Podracer for £54.66 ea
7961 Sith Infiltrator for £39.99 ea
7964 Frigate for £68.66 ea
That's a grand total of £251.97 if you want all four. All of these prices comfortably beat Amazon at the moment.
The STEAM reference is to get around the postage issue, I could bring all the sets to STEAM and we could make the trade there.
Shame I'm not into Star wars
@Savage_Steel, You appear to have put the Firestation out of national stock. lol!!!
Boots is well known for having lots of ridiculous glitches, where they practically pay you to take stuff, and they rarely if ever cancel things, unless they are genuinely out of stock. If it allows you to checkout, I'd be very surprised if they don't send you the items.
Don't forget to get an advantage card, it's normal rate is 4% in points to spend at boots, but often chucks in a lot more or has special offers. I've built up hundreds on there in the past, and bought myself a nice new camera. It's not effort to add and if they keep the lego deals coming, could even pay for more lego for you in the future.
^ sounds like it may not work anyway!
Certainly makes the 3for2 offers less appealing, to me at least. I would guess that if this policy results in less stock shifting, they will soon change their minds.
As it turns out though, I am not too bothered about this offer.
Last year one of my friends who is a collector got 3 x Slave Ones in a 3 for 2 Toys R Us promotion, and he ended up getting in a big debate with the store manager at the till. It still went through ok, but yes, as atkinsar says, I wouldnt be surprised to see these sort of exclusions become common place.
Very poor. Just placed into a plastic courier bag so the top left hand corner is a little damaged. Nothing major I suppose but not a box I would lift off the shelf. Is this typical of online deliveries of lego? Also only one delivered, the other two are on a different van.
Forum moderator Martin had the same "pink tape' experience last year and even posted a picture of his Creator Sonic Boom sets taped together. He complained, if I recall, and got some recompense....
