Looks like most of the small building creator sets are on sale for around 20% off
So the #60097 City Square is 139.50 but you should be able to get the 20% off if you buy three LEGO sets (There is a cap of the discount amount you can get- 50 USD off )
#31050 Corner deli is only 26 USD after the discount is applied.
#31048 Lakeside lodge is only 20 USD after discount applied.
Same with the #31035 beach house
Same with #60019 City Ferry
The #60018 Garbage truck is about 15 USD
#60074 Bulldozer is about 26 USD
Some technic sets are included in the buy 3 and get 20% code. Including the #42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 set (currently 209.49 before sale promo at yoyo now)
Here's the email I sent using Amazon's contact form:
The one change I'd make is to specifically request a refund for the reduced sales tax (if applicable).
And, the email response I got:
However, you can let us know about a lower price by clicking the "tell us about a lower price" link in the Product Details section of some product pages.
To read more about our pricing go to our Help pages:
We hope to see you again soon.
We'd appreciate your feedback. Please use the links below to tell us about your experience today.
It's my understanding, based on Amazon's Pre-order Price Guarantee (see below quote), that they should honor the Prime discount off the lowered list price. The screenshot I included in my earlier post was from late Monday (May 9th, Pacific Time).
Though, it sounds as if the Customer Service Representative rejected your request based on a new no post-purchase price adjustment policy that Amazon appears to have recently implemented. See the most recent posts in this Amazon customer discussion thread (starting with the April 30th message) for details. (Also, this Reddit thread and this FatWallet thread.)
I would definitely suggest trying again, perhaps through a different method (e.g., chat rather than email). And, I'd point out that this refund is based on the Pre-Order Price Guarantee, not a post-purchase price adjustment policy.

Looks like they are all over the place on that one...
It appears many of the same sets from before are on sale again (City Square, Deli, Lodge, etc), but the main themes on sale are city creator junior friends and Duplo this time (no SW, super heroes, or Technic)
Max discount is 40 USD.
Not as good as the 20% they had a couple of weeks ago, but not bad if you must buy a set right now.
It does appear that the Amazon vehicle sale of about 25% off those sets is a better deal than those sets on yoyo.com though.
I think one of the better deals may be the #60076 demolition site actually, with the code, it is about 62 USD each (higher with tax)
(144 elements for $29.99)
