Does anyone know where to get hold of Polybags over here?

    Toys r Us sometimes have them, and other stores like Netto have had them on occasion. Otherwise you're relying on Ebay, Bricklink, Brickowl and other marketplaces.

    Are you after anything specific? Yep as @Aleydita says Toysrus or wait for the Daily Mail offers and Netto (only certain stores).

    I'm just trying to build up my polybag collection. I don't have a net to anywhere near me either

    eBay and bricklink may be your best bet. The Daily Mail promo looks like it has finished. At least, they seem to gave skipped one.

    Find the polys you want, click through to them and then scroll down to see if any are available on your local EBay. Note the cost with postage, then go to the Links tab and click on Bricklink. Compare the prices shown but investigate any minimum order values and additional costs before committing to buy. On the surface EBay may appear more expensive but it's not always the case.

    When shopping at Bricklink (and www.brickowl.com) it usually helps to find a store that has several polys you want.

    Buying on the 'aftermarket' will almost always be more expensive than at retail, so arranging a few trades here on Brickset can help keep the cost of this hobby down.

    Great advice, folks! Many of us try to collect the polybags from themes we like. So you could begin by listing your favorite themes, such as Marvel, Friends, Star Wars, etc., and then make a list of the polybags that were offered under each theme. You can try to collect extras when you find them on sale so that you have something to trade others for the ones you want.
    Many of us try to buy LEGO sets when there are free polybag promotions, mostly at LEGO Stores or TRU. Sometimes the only source may be Brickset, eBay, Bricklink, or Amazon. Buying multiple bags from one seller can lower your shipping charges quite a bit because these are very lightweight to ship. I usually try to buy multiples if I am paying the shipping charges. Many of us buy two of each so that we can build one to enjoy and save another for building our collections. Do save the instructions and package of the ones you build because you may decide you don't want to keep specific ones, and there is a market for used polybags if you have all the contents. Good luck!
