Lego Brand Store Discounts

Do people realize that you get 10% off on all purchases with a Legoland membership ($129) or with a military ID (don't know if you have to be active). Anyway I spend at least $1000 worth of Lego sets each year at my B&M Lego store, so the membership pays for itself. Couple that with the VIP program and your credit card points, you should always save at least 15% on any purchase. It's great to use all the above discounts with the occasional free give aways (i.e. TC-14, Hulk, etc).

Are there additional discounts available?

    My experience is that the 10% passholder discount is only offered in Southern California. I travel for work and have tried it in other states and received blank stares from store managers. It may also work in Florida, but I have not confirmed that. I believe they do it because you can use your pass to get product at 10% off inside the park shops, so they do it only to "compete" with sales going to Merlin instead of to TLG directly.

    since when does military gets 10%? and is this nationwide?
  • vwong19vwong19 Member Posts: 1,191
    That is what my Lego Store in San Diego asks. I am not military so I do know but it might help some military families out.

    I think the 10% military discount applies to admission to the parks (at least in southern CA) and not merchandise at a store.

    I know in fact my Lego Store gives a 10% discount to the military. I am curious if other Lego stores offer that deal. Perhaps since San Diego is a military town they do this and also because there is a Legoland up the road they also give the Legoland membership discount.

    Since Lego stores and Legoland parks seem to be opening everywhere these days it may be a good deal to obtain a membership simply to get the discount but not plan on going to the park.

    I've read replies in the past that said people were able to get some extras thrown in while making a large purchase at a lego B&M store. But I can't seem to find any of the replies as they weren't in a specific topic. I'm making a trip down to the US next weekend and thinking about picking up several large sets that are getting close to EOL that I haven't found at a deal online available to Canada.

    So my question is, has anybody gotten a deal on a large purchase, and what were you able to get and what price point?

    I suggest you talk directly to the store manager, while I never asked for discount directly, I was successful in getting some of the promotional items, (like a free minifig for $50 and able to get 4 for a $200 purchase).
    If you are interested in damaged boxes (10+%), some stores have then and my wife was successful discussing how "damaged" the box was and got an extra 10%.

    Never heard of anyone getting a volume discount. You can ask them about damaged boxes they may have at discount, or they may give you extra freebies according to what the monthly deals is but that is it.

    Doubt it. If you have a Disneyland or Disney World annual pass, though, you get a flat 10% off all non-sale items at the Disney locations.

    I got 2 Mini Sopwiths on a purchase of 1 UCS IS (with a coupon as well). But yeah, the store manager, would be the guy and even then he/she has little power. That's like asking Wal-Mart for a discount.
  • bluemoosebluemoose Member Posts: 1,716
    In the UK they had a policy (maybe still do, haven't tried in a while) of offering 10% discount on single transactions over £1,000UK. It was at the Manager's discretion (so best not to be a jerk about it). So, not a right, not something you could walk into a store and demand, but a nice little extra for being a good customer. No idea if this was ever a policy in the US or Germany.

    ^^ Actually, you can ask Walmart for a discount, and the dept managers have the power to do it, within reason.

    The managers at Lego stores have much less power, I've asked and asked, and even spending ten thousand doesn't matter. I've tried, believe me. ;)

    I usually can get extra promo items, or extra VIP points, that sort of thing, but a straight discount? Haven't managed that, and honestly stopped trying since there are so much better discounts everywhere else.

    Thanks for the replies! Looks like seconds on the Lego Birthday cake is all I might be getting. I may hold off buying everything on this trip, hopefully I can pick up most items at the next TRU BOGO50. I'll let you know if I end up getting any extra promo from Lego.

    Back in May, I was able to get two Hulk Minifigures on my purchase of $130. So I can second the getting extra freebies per dollar spent.
  • prevereprevere Member Posts: 2,923
    @LTF - with WM, do you primarily ask about open box deals? Or say, hey "I'm willing to spend X dollars today - can you offer a discount?"
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas Member Posts: 8,404
    During clearance time, when stacking sets in the cart, finding the dept stocker can get you attn, ask if they have more in the back, that starts a conversation.

    Then it is all aout working the deal. :). Good old fashioned haggling... My favorite!!! :)
