Walmart Friday 8AM - 30% off ALL Lego
Hi All -
Just saw the Walmart Black Friday Manager's Specials, and it appears that they'll be offering ALL LEGO 30% off beginning Friday at 8AM.http://www.walmart.com/cp/1163542?povid=P1171-C1143.3258+1139.4049-L0
As with most Walmart promos, the prices of these items will actually probably drop sometime between midnight and 8AM, and many people who are already in the store will probably fill their carts and then checkout as soon as the prices drop.
A couple interesting points:
1.) The bottom of the ad states that rainchecks will be made available if items sell out. This appears just to be their standard advertised merchandise policy.
2.) The 6PM doorbuster $15 set isn't excluded in the text of the ad... so if your store still has any of those left in the morning, they should be $10.50.

At the top of the ad, it says "Quantities are limited. No rainchecks." I take that to mean every item/category in the ad.
Walmart uses what are internally called "tab files" to lower prices when they do category-level or broad price reductions. They always advertise these prices as being effective at 8AM, but they are almost always live earlier.
For example, for last week's Friday sale, many people saw prices effective as of about 2-3AM.
I suspect that the $15 set won't be automatically included in the 30% off, but you'd definitely have a fighting chance at arguing for the discount.
14 hours? Suggestions:
1) Spend it mentally calculating how much people are spending on "Duck Dynasty" crap that will be on clearance at the dollar store in six months!
2) Join the unfair wage protesters out front for a few minutes; realize how good you have it!
3) Engage in shennanigans and follow the "reverse shopper" putting stuff back in the proper place and undo all their handy work!
4) Grab an unattended microphone at CS and announce a bogus special on a fake product. Watch pandemonium ensue!
5) Hang out in the Lego aisle and listen to the uninformed parents/relatives who insist knock off brands are "just as good as Lego"; weep inside for the poor kid who gets a "Kreo" set on Christmas morning
Well, as a Canadian, seeing a 30% off Lego sale on American retail prices pretty much looks a lot like a "free Lego" sign. I looked at most of the BlackFriday flyers for Canada already, and the deals essentially add up to "sucks to be you"! TRU Canada has half off Speedorz (which $10 is still more than I'd pay for one minifigure) and half off the Hobbit WargAttack (which would be $30 for a tree and two rocks)... the kind of sets which are "too much at any price".
What's worth getting at WM for 30% off that I can't find somewhere else cheaper? My close WM has the SW Gunship 30% already for $79..it'd be great if it went another 30%off on Friday.
But frankly, I would have said a month ago that the odds of the discounts we've seen would be unlikely...
And we aren't even to Black Friday yet, just wait until the 7th of Dec when retailers make their push to clear out everything before Christmas. It is much cheaper and easier to push it all at 35% off Dec 10th than it is to push it out at 50% off Dec 26th.
Last year, despite having tons of way overpriced LEGO, TRU stores did indeed look like a tornado cleared their LEGO shelves, but Walmart still had stock and Amazon wasn't sold out of everything.
I think this year, we have yet to see the best sales. My gut tells me the reason the sales are already this good is that they have too much product and it just isn't moving fast enough.
How about "Free Millennium Falcon w/DS purchase?" That is about your 25% off that you were looking for, sort of. Or they could just do $100 gift card with DS/SSD purchase and be done with it.
As for the normal stuff... don't be shocked to see 50% off something before Christmas from Amazon. They are already at 40% on a few things and black Friday isn't even here yet.
Not to mention maybe my arithmetic is off, but the deals online are not 30% off, at least for some of the sets I am seeing.
Still interested in the hospital set but it is showing for 47.97 right now :-(
And we certainly have plenty of leftovers to eat the day after Thanksgiving. The only place I will be going for sure on BF is the gym…to swim off what I over ate today. Ta Ta for Now!
