Asked the Target employee to double-check what the price was.
He said because it's not in the system, he'd have to give it to me for the last posted price.
Here, I'm thinking 70% off.
$89.99 was what I was told. (No way...)
I asked if he pricematched. I checked Amazon (lowest at $51.99) and Target and TRU online no longer stocked them. I told him I'll pass; I was able to get them for $38 on clearance online at TRU.
The Joker steamroller still checks out at 30%. I'll bite at 50% but I'll check tomorrow.
Lastly, I saw some Chima sets were listed at 70% off:
I think it's more surplus inventory from the closing of the Targets in Canada.
70146: Flying Phoenix Fire Temple
Sticker said $79 (reg $120). Rang up $35. Also, several of the smaller ($30) Lego movie sets are ringing up at $9.
PM with Amazon on these two items:
#75082 (shelf price $39.99; Amazon $31.99)
#60073 (shelf price $24.99; Amazon $19.99)
plus my Target RedCard 5%.
So 24% off each. Loved it. Lego VIP rewards and a crappy Bionicle giveaway can't top that.
Was told however that each Target store PMs one item per customer per day.
(But she let this transaction go through)
70164-1: Ultra Agents Hurricane Heist
I did not purchase.
I am very happy with Fyndly. Much obliged to @abel for creating it.
One beat-up #60044 Mobile Police Unit at 50% off
At least 20 each of #70786 Gali and #70789 Onua at 33% off
Interesting to note that Fyndly reports no stock for both Police sets.
70162: Infearno Interception $14.98
76013: Batman: The Joker Steam Roller $20.98
The Infearno set was a lot better build than I was expecting. Nice looking set when completed.
There was a lot more at 50%, but I'm going to wait and see if it goes 70% off.
Only thing I saw on the Fyndly app but couldn't get was the 79116: Big Rig Snow Getaway. It was listed at $20.98 and in stock at one store near me, but I couldn't find any on the shelf and the price scanner indicated it had already gone salvage.
I did notice one thing I found weird. All of the Joker Steamroller sets have disappeared. The stores around me had tons of them .....whole end caps full. Then one day last week they just vanished.
I did have one rival when I first started hunting. He somehow knew when Barnes & Nobles was having their sale and he would reserve all the good sets the day before. So I would go to the check out and find all the good deals behind the counter with the name " Robert" taped to them. I eventually tracked him down and we became pretty good friends. Now we split everything we find.
I quit looking for big LEGO discounts two years ago because it became a waste of time. Spending two hours and gas to possibly save $20 can be a bad decision when markdowns are so rare. And I have plenty of LEGO that have never been played with. It is relaxing shopping for groceries at Target now without rushing to the other end of a huge store to see if anything is marked down more than 10 per cent.
70164: Hurricane Heist for $35
70163: Toxica's Meltdown for $20
70232: Saber-Tooth Tiger Tribe Pack for $6
60062: Arctic Icebreaker for $13
It was the most weird and awesome Target clearance experience I've had to date. I'll post more about it tomorrow.
I've seen a few Agents HQ that I would love to pick up at 50% or more. I wonder why they are not being discounted? Has anyone seen discounting on this set?
If they salvaged them, some may just end up at your local Goodwill.
