Where do you normally buy your LEGO?

Personally,  I go to Target, the Lego Store, or, Lego [email protected] Sometimes I look to Ebay or Amazon, but very rarely.

    In order for me:

    Target>Walmart>Toys R Us (during Poly promos)>Lego [email protected] (only during Promos)>ebay>Amazon>Lego Store (not much anymore).

    My bias is skewed, as I'm actively protesting purchases directly from Lego due to their arcane 'No Discount' rule in the US.

    All over, but Amazon quite frequently due to discounts. Although with Target and TRU price matching Amazon, I get more at those stores than I ever used to. 

    There's an old TRU in my area that is typically fairly empty. Makes it a breeze to do price match without having to wait in line too long. And the employees are incredibly nice there. Which I can't say about the bigger, newer TRUs in the area. I used to just drop in to look because they always have the biggest LEGO selection in my area, but lately I've been buying a lot from there. TRU's inflated prices mean nothing with price matching. That and because it's so empty, they always have plenty of each page polybag promotion.

    I've so far used LEGO Store, LEGO [email protected], TRU, Tesco, Amazon and Ebay.

    Currently looking forward to being able to cash-in my VIP points at [email protected] to get a discount on the 2016 UCS Snowspeeder :-)

    90% in a department store my Grandma worked for and still gets discount. 9% at LEGO [email protected] (no actual store near me). 1% other stores, supermarkets, eBay...

    Amazon for most things. I buy the small holiday sets and winter village sets directly from lego. I also pick up occasional polys from Target/Walmart/TRU.

    I shop at Target, Amazon, and TRU but only if the item is on sale. Otherwise I go to the LEGO Store or [email protected] because I can earn VIP points and usually get a promotional item... and I tend to buy more exclusives than anything else.

    Can I get it at John Lewis?  If so, buy it there with staff discount.
    If not, how long before there's some promotion or other at the Lego store?  If it's not too long, wait for that.
    If it's going to be ages, just buy it from Lego anyway.
    Meanwhile, keep an eye on my local TRU and Amazon, just in case there are bargains too good to resist.

    Don't think I've ever bought Lego from anywhere else.

    The LEGO store! Occasionally I'll find a small set at TRU

    I buy from Lego [email protected] mostly, but sometimes Amazon and occasionally BrickLink. I try to avoid the toy section when I'm in Walmart, that place is a money drain for me already.
