    Remind me why this is a good deal? Amazon is selling QAR this for $108 with no tax, so it is more or less the same price.

    Get me QAR for $80 and I'll be impressed... ;)

    Right now, yoyo.com has QAR for 119.99 less 40% off one item (use code yoyo40), makes it 71.99 with FS no tax

    Thanks for the tip Andy...

    I pulled the trigger on that one. A total of about $71 w/free shipping for the QAR is a no-brainer.
  • adello25adello25 U.S.A.Member Posts: 361
    Just ordered it as well! Couldn't pass up the QAR at that price.

    Thank you for the tip Andy! My wife has been wanting the QAR since the first time she saw it and at that price couldn't pass it up so win-win here.

    I also just bought one. For anyone else considering buying from Yoyo.com, please consider using a referral code. They will donate $10-25 to charity when you make your first purchase.

    I have NO financial interest in you using my referral code, so here it is if you want to help a charity: BTHX2789

    Thanks Brent. Just 2 minutes too late for the charity. But $71 for a Clone Turbo Tank is nice. That sucker just never seems to be on sale with TRU and even if it was with the usual TRU BOGO 50% off - this is still $10 cheaper.

    First time using yoyo.com - is this kind of deal rare for that site?
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    Yoyo is brand new (as of September). It is a subsidiary of Quidsi, which also owns diapers.com, soap.com, and wag.com. Quidsi itself is a subsidiary of Amazon.com.

    Anyway, these sites are pretty good on promotions. They seem to have the best promotions when a new site is launched, but they also participate in the "Cyber Monday"-type sales.

    @andystar Thanks a lot. Just placed order for QAR. You rock!
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    I'm looking at the YoYo.com stock for their 40% off coupon, and can only think that its 10% MORE expensive than the Barnes & Noble coupon from last week. These sales are playing with my head!
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    @brickupdate - that is true. All these sales suck. lol

    Anyone have any idea on the weight of QAR? I just got my UPS notice from Quidsi/YoYo.com, and it's showing the weight as 32.20 pounds!

    Even weirder is that they said the item would have a 5-7 business day delay due to high demand, but they already shipped it...

    I'm guessing QAR is actually probably 4-5 pounds, right?

    Brent
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Maybe they are sending you 8 of them by mistake? ;)
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    haha - Except I'm pretty sure that the case isn't 8... so unless they're sending me two cases..... ;)

    Brent
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    There are 3 to a case, I think... But I doubt they are actually doing that, probably a typo in the weight.
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    We'll see... It also says that it shipped UPS Ground, yet it will be here tomorrow.

    I'm not holding my breath that it will be here tomorrow, especially when the site said to expect it December 11.

    At $71, do you really care how long it takes? ;_)
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    Not at all. It's not a gift. It won't be opened for a long time... Delivery time is completely unimportant to me. LOL

    My real concern is how well they package it. If it's anything like the TRU.com order I received yesterday, I'll have an issue.

  • pookiepookie Member Posts: 156
    Looks like my 1 QAR has already shipped and its 29.3lbs?
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    Thats weird. I looked at one at Walmart today and estimste the weight to be around 4 pounds.

    I wonder what they are sending for yours to be 29 pounds and mine 32...

  • adello25adello25 U.S.A.Member Posts: 361
    I received my QAR today. The box was HUGE! It was big enough for maybe 10 QAR's. But they did pack it very well, a lot of the big bubble cushions. Maybe that made up for the weight? Mine weight in a (according to Fedex) 29lbs.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Perhaps the 29lbs was the dimensional weight. In that case, that is a heck of a waste of money.

    Big companies do such stupid things...
  • pcironepcirone Long Island, NYMember Posts: 346
    WOW what a big box for 1 set.. the unfortunate side effect is with all that room in there for the lego box to "swim" around in it got beat up a bit on the corners.. I guess this is the one I build :)
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    There's a coupon for a $10 gift card if you purchase $50+. Good thru 12/3.

    I take it the coupon is in store only?

  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ Yes, it is.
  • pookiepookie Member Posts: 156
    Just got my QAR from Yoyo. Fast free shipping and great packaging, I'll be back if they have great deals like this one.
  • BTHodgemanBTHodgeman Member Posts: 622
    My item from Yoyo didn't show up today like UPS said it would, so I e-mailed Yoyo... they replied to me in TWELVE minutes, profusely apologizing that UPS missed the delivery date, re-shipped another one to me (for Friday delivery) and gave me a $10 credit for "the trouble." Now THAT is good service!

    Now I need to e-mail and ask them what to do when both items eventually show up...

    Mine shows 29 pounds too via Fedex. If it's beat up from bouncing around, then it's going to get built over the Christmas holidays.

    Just received my QAR today from Fedex. Wow...the shipping box was huge. Fortunately, the QAR inside was undamaged as they threw in a bunch of those air padding things. Great deal thanks to Andystar's heads up...
  • DatoDato Member Posts: 111
    ^ Hmmm. I wonder how big the box would be when the Death Star I ordered from Target arrives....
