    it seems everything is in stock too...i'm tempted to get two death stars for resale and keep the free super star destroyer...but i think i'll wimp out and not lay down the money

    Is this sale showing for anyone yet?
  • Skyward72Skyward72 Member Posts: 19
    No
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ Not yet. But it seems sales have been starting more at 7:00am this year. Unlike last year when you could count on them starting at 12:01am sharp.
  • ufjasonufjason Member Posts: 23
    You can't order more than 2...

    You can order 2 death stars and 1 ssd (according to the current guidelines)
  • neomonkeyneomonkey Member Posts: 82
    Another good combo is 2x Tower Bridges and an Imperial Shuttle.

    Calling it a night. I have hit my refresh quota for the day. Hopefully the virtual shelves aren't bare by the time I wake up tomorrow ;)

    Anyone in San Diego/Irvine area wanna share a 3 for 2 on a Death Star or something?
  • dneuldneul Member Posts: 369
    Does anyone know. The promo code?
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    @Playftl Let's do it! I'm down if you are. SSD for me, split the DS?

    Yay, that was fast! :D
  • TitusTitus Member Posts: 79
    Does TRU usually raise the prices before they start these B2G1 sales? Right now, DS is discounted and I'm wondering if it'll go back to $399 before the sale starts.
  • gmpirategmpirate Member Posts: 1,654
    Sometimes they are slow to react but I would say they will correct it soon enough. Just jump on it early otherwise :P
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    Crazy. Still not giving me the 3rd set for free. Someone said 7AM, is that Eastern Time?
  • ptericpteric Member Posts: 156
    yeah, I think they have to bump their prices back up to over retail before it will go through.
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    Still nothing showing up :(

    All this work, just to end up with boxes that are trashed.

    50% of everything TRU ships me is nearly destroyed, I've stopped bothering...
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 1,006
    I am by no means a TRU advocate, but I can say that I have never received boxes that were terribly damaged, and I have bought a good number of big ticket items. I missed out when they did this sale the last time, so I am trying to stay up and catch this one. Unfortunately, it is getting a bit late. Who knows when the sale is going to even start? Oh well.
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    My last 2 shipments have been good. I'm going to open up one of the sets I'm buying so, if there is any damage, I hope it's that set.
  • TitusTitus Member Posts: 79
    I am going to be a mess tomorrow. Come on TRU!!
  • Penkid11Penkid11 Member Posts: 789
    There better an awesome Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale going on. I need my DS and I currently can't even afford a Ninjago spinner!
  • TitusTitus Member Posts: 79
    I can't do it and have to go to bed. Wish me luck in finding things still in stock when I wake up. Good night, bricksetters.
  • gmpirategmpirate Member Posts: 1,654
    Well, the ad B2G1 is up but nothing so far works :/
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 1,006
    Yea I can't get it to work on anything at all....
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 10,477

    Actually some are B2G1 and some apparently are not, it appears the bigger sets are excluded.. at least right now, at least the creator sets...
    Train, LoTR, PoTC, and some star Wars seem to be B2G1
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 10,477
    Apparently IS, DS, Creator sets TB, FB, GE, PS and TH are all not included in the sale.. At least right now... dunno if TRU will list them for sale at a later time
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,271
    Doesn't appear to apply to more than 3 items in the cart either. Is that normal for TRU sales? Had 3 train motors in and it showed, but when I added 3 IR sensors, the sensors showed B2G1 but the motors went back to normal price.

    No, it only allows what that particular set quantity is. So you have to try to mix and match.
    Jabba's palace allows for 3, as well as the new parking garage.. those are the only ones I found.
    I'm guessing helm deep may as well.
    Monster fighters castle is limit 3
    Oh, and Medieval market village is also NOT part of this sale.. at least fro right now

    So basically none of the big creator sets or big big SW sets are on sale.. But for those wanting trains the yellow cargo train is back at 180 and on sale.. not sure if that one was limit two or not.

    Kinda wasted my time getting up this early since the bigger creator sets were not on sale at this time.

    sigh. why did i get up extra early for this? it's amazing how i forget from sale to sale how much TRU sucks.

    Ridiculous. MMV as well :(
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,271
    ^^^ not what I meant. I meant if you have 6 qualifying items (say all different items) then the most expensive 3 show B2G1 but the next 3 items in your cart are all regular price. It doesn't do B2G1 more than once per cart. Sucks for ordering small stuff and getting free shipping.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 10,477
    Yeah almost a complete loss of sleep for me.. I did pick up Jabba's palaces... 80 per seems like a good deal for now... could not really pull the trigger on anything else... Id get more trains if I already did not have a bunch of them already
  • SquareSideSquareSide Member Posts: 170
    I'm sure TRU has rigged this deal to not work with sets we want...

    That is how it usually is as well.. one 'deal' per cart.. I know the last BOGO50 I think was 2 sets of deals per but again TRU does not want you maximizing this deal... Then again free shipping is only at $49 instead of $99 so it is not that bad... The smaller creator houses are all on sale (Hillside, apply, log cabin, lighthouse)
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    I bought 3 Jabbas Palaces. I was able to use a 10% promotional code as well. My total came to $215.98 before tax. So I got 3 JP's for $71.99 a piece. Not bad :)
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Yeah, the bad news is a lot of exclusives are excluded. The good news is they haven't reset the "sale" prices on items, so they are stacking. You can get the Hoth Echo Base for 33% off today (vs the 30% last week). Fun House is a great buy at true 33% off.

    I'm assuming that's not a shareable code?
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    I also bought 3 Urak-Hai Army sets. They were marked down to normal retail, so it wasn't so bad. Nice army builders and walls to add to Helms Deep. I had $150 in TRU gift cards too. So, today I got $450 for $179. Not bad I guess.
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    @sidersdd, that is good news about sales prices still there and then getting 33% off! Cannot wait :)

    Yeah, this blows. I was hoping to stock up on Coffin Cars.

    No, I'm sorry. I definitely would have shared if that was the case. I'm actually surprised I was able to use it. I only got it because I called TRU and complained about something.

  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    Now...what is the over/under on how many boxes will be damaged upon delivery?
  • The_Brick_BuilderThe_Brick_Builder Member Posts: 658
    Great... No modulars. BF here I come!
  • itsnotmeitsnotme Member Posts: 124
    Has anyone had problems placing multiple orders? I placed three separate orders and so far only the cheapest one has been confirmed...
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,446
    Yeah, I had my cart stuffed with modulars. Oh well. TRU usually has another BOGO toward the end of the year so...
  • AmberylAmberyl Member Posts: 193
    I placed four separate orders, all of them confirmed instantly.
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks USAMember Posts: 1,367
    Got it an order for 3x #9471 (Uruk-Hai Army). They were still listed at $29.99, so I am getting them at 30% off.

    Hello army builder.
  • BrickarmorBrickarmor USAMember Posts: 1,258
    BP is not a bad deal here. Would love to pick up a Vampyre Castle too
  • ufjasonufjason Member Posts: 23
    Just called in and was able to order two death stars and one super star destroyer on the b2g1 promo. They had to check me out at full price and then process the adjustment. 719.98 before tax and the overage from the $20 shipping credit. I figure it'll be just over $250 a piece after all is said and done.
