Does anyone have a link to next week's ad or a scan of it? I am curious whether the Medieval Market Village will be in the Kingdoms deal. It's technically listed as a Castle Theme and not Kingdoms, but I would really like to get one (or two).
@sonsofsceva Is the BOGO sale for Kingdoms and Alien Conquest ONLY?
Just curious - which theme(s) are you guys collecting? I just started with the City theme. :) Alien looks interesting but no $ to start yet...
Do you collect >2 themes the same time? If items go on sales, do you buy all (or almost every sets in the theme) at one time? I guess I'm asking the best strategy to collect 1-3 themes without emptying my wallet...
I hope they add more to their stocks by tomorrow night.
May buy two of those CARS 2 spy plane sets though if they are BOGO...
Plus I really do not need anymore of the FB.. maybe an Imperial flagship...But the Idea I had was to get two Red Cargo trains and be 'done' for the large Lego sets for the year (hopefully)
I probably will lean toward getting those spy jet sets for Cars2 cause I like the Jets in it , and they do not cost an arm and a leg (Although I need to buy a CMF or something small to get the free shipping)
Otherwise Ill just start hunting for the set at TRUs in the area tomorrow morning.. (I think people have said they are in stock in B&M stores..).
In the B&M Store it is BOGO 40%
I just came back from two TRU's. To be honest I never really paid close attention to the tags in the first store as I was looking for the 3677 train in stock. They did not have them, so I walked out of that TRU without really paying attention.
In the Second TRU store I went into I found two 3677 Cargo trains left and got em, but went I paid the amount seemed a bit high.. I checked the receipt after the purchase and saw that under the Item on the receipt it stated Buy one get one 40% off..
I thought it was a joke or only something for the cargo trains (since they limited them online) so I went and dropped the trains off in my vehicle and went back in to find out, sure enough, the signs posted say BOGO 40%...lol
I mean I am trying not to complain because I am still getting them on some sort of sale, but TRU is getting a bit ridiculous.... I mean You can only get one online (and they are no sold out, so not sure if they sold out one at a time or sold out because they expanded the limit to 2) and then they 'punish' you going to the store to BOGO40% instead of 50%
I guess I will hold onto the receipt. If I can somehow get them this week online for a BOGO50% Ill return these
I mean again I got it for a good price (20% still better than nothing), and if I happen to catch them available at a store in my area for buy one get one 50%off Ill buy two at that price and return the others...
I took a chance and drove to a TRU 15 minutes from my workplace during lunch. I found the Passenger train easy as there were 4 on the shelf. With the help of a LEGO rep that was there, I found a Cargo train hidden behind some other boxes. HURRAY!
Now here's where it got tricky. Shelf prices were $197.99 and $153.99. Online prices are $179.99 and $139.99. I was able to have them honor the online prices at the customer service counter, BUT the associate could not get the BOGO to work... call over the manager and viola! Done! Passenger train was now $69.99! To top it off, I had a $200 gift card, so my actual out of pocket expense came to only $71.85! I'm happy I finally got some LEGO trains. Wanna see my happy dance? LOL
TRU has had some variation of BOGO50 for seemingly all of the summer.
But wow. So much Lego. It's probably for the best that the deals are drying up.
For those of you in LUGs near a LEGO Store, ask about starting a LUG showcase in that store. This is an official LEGO initiative. When you drop off a MOC for the display every six weeks you get 30% off up to 5 unique items and a fre PaB cup. You create your own sale at 30% off which is better than the 25% off that BOGO is and you can buy from which ever theme you like.
