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