    The BOGO which starts tomorrow again shows only Star Wars excluded. Dunno if you can print it out and bring it in before they change it. I was unable to get to TRU to try it on the Fri-Sat one I printed.

    Caravan went from $20 to $28...

    I think that the only way I buy from true is if there are coupons/BOGO buy2 get the 3rd free, etc...
    The 'retail' prices are jokes at TRU..
    Not to mention with all of the BOGO sales they have nothing, namely the Modulars (as it seems those are the only sets that TRU has yet to price increase)

    I just took a look, could not find anything worth buying...
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Tower Bridge is in stock.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    QAR is "discounted" down to MSRP, and appears to be BOGOing right now. Sale items don't appear to be excluded.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Lightning Dragon is in stock as well. It's not marked up.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Scorpion Pyramid is marked down to $65.99 and can BOGO on top of that - if you can find a store with it. They are sold out on-line.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    TRU Truck is marked down to $29.99 and can BOGO on top of it - bringing it down to over 50% off. In-stock right now.
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 289
    @sidersdd, are you seeing the 50%? It is not showing on the items, although it is on homepage
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ Yep. Seeing it. Try adding to your cart. Only exclusions I'm encountering right now are Super Heroes, Star Wars, and Games.

    Passenger Plane is marked down to $29.99 and can be BOGO'd, if you can find a store for pickup.
  • OdinduskOdindusk Member Posts: 763
    $97 for Whitecap Bay.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ Heh-heh, lovely. Most are like that.
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 4,860
    The ad says no exclusions but Star Wars yet now they exclude Superheroes? That really ticks me off. How many people are going to think they got a deal and just fail to check their receipts?
  • coolpixcoolpix Member Posts: 357
    I agree, and to people like us who track these prices it seems like such a scam by TRU. However, lately when I go into TRU I see all the grandmothers picking up the SW Falcon for $164, I just can't believe it, but they are lured in by the BOGO 50% deal. This strategy must be working for TRU because they keep doing it.
    And when you think that you can get that same set at a discount at Target for $109, it's really twisted...

    TRU just sickens me... I want a Passenger plane really bad (still haven't got one), but it's disgusting to buy sets over there like that. I don't have the will power to take advantage of that. Part of me wants to buy this plane at my LEGO store for $39.99.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    3181 on BOGO50 when it is priced at $29.99 is a heck of a deal. Less than $50 for 2 of them after tax...

    Shame it is sold out for shipping (does TRU actually order any Lego, or just pretend they do?), but I've got a few now reserved for pickup at my local stores, thanks for the tip. Never done store pickup there before, will be interesting to see how easy it is.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Ok, there IS a good deal...

    7848 - TRU City Truck, the blue one, is $29.99 and is BOGO and ships...

    You have to add a $5 Lego item to get to $50 to get free shipping, but since it saves you $10 in shipping, that is easy enough...

    $55 with tax delivered for 2 TRU City Trucks plus a poly bag item? Bargin... Sigh, here we go again...!!!
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 289
    This is an instance when that free shoprunner (that so many of you told me was useless) would have been handy ;)
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Or...

    Add 6910 or 6911 and get free shipping and a pretty cool creator set... :)
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 289
    Or use shoprunner on two different orders and get two trucks and two creator sets all at BOGO50% ;)
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 289
    seriously, no it is not amazon prime, but shoprunner (especially for free and just a few minutes to sign up) has been very helpful sending gifts to all the young relatives and saving the shipping.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Or you cam just find lots of interesting $5 Lego sets to add... when picking up a few TRU trucks... ;)

    Ok, ok, I admit it, I got carried away... I ordered 20 of them... For $24 each delivered, how could I resist? That is even better than the 50% off deal they had awhile ago!! (since the $24 includes tax and the $24.99 price did not.

    Yes, I do have to take a $5 kit, I bought the City Speedboat, Holiday Wreath, Alien Conquest thing, Both Ninjago polybags, both Atlantis polybags, both $5.99 creator kits, and that filled out 10 orders of 2 trucks each plus a $5 item to get over $50.

    What a fun way to spend $500. :) Funny, it is less painful to do this than it was to buy 10221 on Brick Friday... Maybe that is because we'll now have a fleet of 5 City Yellow Trucks, 5 TRU White Trucks, and sell the rest to pay for it all.

    The one thing we've never done with Lego before is to have multiple of anything to "play" with, but in a City you really would have a "fleet" of trucks, now we can. :) The plus side is that by selling the other trucks, the whole thing doesn't cost me a dime, other than an hour or two of my time to deal with it all.

    Plus we get all of the above extra $5 items for "free". Sort of, since if I had shoprunner I wouldn't have needed to bother with them, but they will be fun to play with.

    Has anyone used their $10 for $20 converted ecards for this bogo50% off deal? Just curious.
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    This is strange - I just put two items (City Trucks) in my cart, and a free Bricktober Forestman Magnet showed up in my cart as well, for free.

    @LegoFanTexas - for me the 7848 trucks show up as $50 retail.
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 4,860
    ^ the $29.99 was a carryover from Saturday. They most likely corrected that by this morning.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    @brickupdate - the $29.99 was indeed a carryover, it lasted only a few hours before they adjusted the price. I did get a bunch of orders in at that price, would you like one of them? :)
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    This thread, like the Atlantis one, should probably be split. Sorry about that.
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 4,860
    Done.
  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    If anyone is still interested in 1 year of free shoprunner you may sign up here (credit card info is optional):

    https://www.shoprunner.com/dominos-free

    Merry Xmas!
  • DavidRod8DavidRod8 Member Posts: 143
    Thanks for the link. Should work great once these offers for free shipping are over...
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    It says offer expired... :(

    Bummer, I'd take it free for a year! :)
  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    ^ Sorry these deals always expire quickly. Shoprunner has run three 1 year free promos the past 2 weeks so if they do another I will post here.
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 289
    Just go to shoprunner.com and sign up for the free 30-day trial. You will need cc info, but just remember to cancel on or before day 30. I did this and within a few days, they send me link to renew free for the year.
  • DavidRod8DavidRod8 Member Posts: 143
    I know this sale has been beaten up to death, but here's a good deal... MMV is back up in stock, although you can only get one at a time... I combined it with the Public Transport set (also $99)

    On top of that I use the $15 off $100 (Right now is SANTAFUN)

    and last but not least, I went through the ebates website for an extra 4% off (about $6 based on the value of this order) By the way, this site works great, I'm already close to $100 in cash back ;)

    If you still need to sign up with ebates, follow this link...
    http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=xAnasfvkYu8304r3TzjEmw==

    Also, I did shoprunner and was able to get 2 day shipping...

    The offer is good, adding the $15 off $100 makes it great, but you can only do it once...

    I went back in and did the same thing again, but this time I added code "947579" which is $10 off $100... I have had trouble using this one in the past since every time I do it removes the free shipping... I figured since I was using shop runner I would get free shipping plus (or minus) the $10 off...

    Oh, and to top it off I got a free Bricktober Forrestman Minifigure magnet... :)

    Both sets are sold out in Amazon... MMV is available at [email protected], 8404 is SO.
  • DavidRod8DavidRod8 Member Posts: 143
    and if anybody needs a free trial for shop runner go here...

    http://www.shoprunner.com/invite/a0QG0000004RahoMAC

    I heard from several people that at the end of the trial sometimes they offer a year for free...
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Shuttle Expedition (10231) is in-stock if anybody has been trying to get it.
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 289
    ^Thanks, I think, for the tip. My son has been asking for this and it is one of the few sets TRU has jacked the price. Ack! Wallet takes another hit.

    Btw, the Star Wars are now included in the BOGO50% if anyone is really in need of something. Will probably come to full retail with mark-up/ Although, 7961 is only $5 over retail (love DM).
  • brickmaticbrickmatic Member Posts: 1,071
    Not to mention with all of the BOGO sales they have nothing, namely the Modulars (as it seems those are the only sets that TRU has yet to price increase)
    For anyone near NYC, the Time Square brick and mortar store actually carries the exclusive sets in store. I saw a bunch of sets like Tower Bridge there.
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    @brickmatic - the Times Square TRU does have some of the exclusive sets, but they are heavily marked up due to the astronomical rents of having such a big store in the middle of Times Square. So the Death Star would be something like $480, not $400. Even with the BOGO50, it isn't worth it. Also: you would then have to be walking around NYC with these big boxes.
  • hleonffuhleonffu USAMember Posts: 243
    Must be because we are getting closer to Christmas. Earlier in the week they had Pet Shop and FB at RRP with BOGO (picked up both). They also had a few MMV at RRP.
  • DavidRod8DavidRod8 Member Posts: 143
    Had forgotten that with ebates you also get a $10 gift card after you make your first purchase. Just got a confirmation today that they were mailing my gift card.... not a bad deal at all!!! Follow the link I posted earlier in this thread if you haven't signed up, I gotta a feeling we'll be busy placing several orders this weekend ;)
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    AT-OT and Fire Brigade in-stock.
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    @sidersdd Both gone now.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Diagon Alley back in stock. Not much to pair it with.
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    They won't let me buy 2 Diagon Alleys, I even called and spoke with them. Bummer.
  • musicfilmbookmusicfilmbook Member Posts: 2
    For Diagon go to fao.com and you can get 2 and take $25 off your order with the code on the FAO home page.
  • andystarandystar Member Posts: 275
    ^ Nice find @musicfilmbook, makes it $100 each.
