Edit: Just saw this convo went to the next page. Disco and Tears of a Batman for everyone!
I'm debating whether or not to get Batman now.. and not go to my store next week which is what I planned before all this. If the store is out of Batman do you guys think [email protected] will have enough by then? I really hope so
A week from now? Two weeks?
Will the Lego brick and mortar stores have them on clearance sooner?
The VF one still had Santa sets at 50%. Needless to say, I bought two (to get to my $75 threshold for the Batman poly).
I hope the Valentine's set is as abundant.
#41233, #21306, Black Widow keychain. 41233 is one of the better DC Girls deals. Yellow Submarine is the set from my wantlist least likely to go on sale. #70910 is not available at Target, but I wasn't sure what else to get to reach $75. The rest of my current wantlist is City and Friends. Ironically, prices like x.99 and similar prices make it harder to reach order threshholds. I put just enough on my debit card to go about $2 over, partly to force a budget and partly to spend money elsewhere. Black Widow is the on sale keychain I would most likely actually use. Not much on sales and deals besides what I ordered the maximum quantity of last time.
I started using the Friends mug. It holds about a cup or quarter liter. For some drinks that's a reasonable quantity, so OK. However, the handle is only long enough for about 2 fingers. The plastic is sturdy; should be dishwasher safe (at least top rack), but I handwashed it. Fun novelty for the deep discount.
I was hoping to see 40236 on sale, both practical and sentimental. I got #40201 20% off on my first LEGO Store trip soon after the end of my dark age. That was on the 15th.
40236 is listed in cart as $5.356, normally I see LEGO prices like that on BL. Hovering over My Bag gives a VIP point estimate based on the retail price but going to edit/checkout gives correct information. I'm not complaining.
Also, my PaB orders always come from Poland and take 2-3 weeks to arrive after they get shipped.
I placed an order for 5, a #41234 this time for 30546, 70910, #41309 (also on my wantlist) and a Batman CMF. I needed $13.24 to hit $75. Saving $1 led to a more convenient total, and the CMF is less likely to go on sale than the $14.99 set I was considering. Likewise I didn't get #41235 and 41309 sans CMF.
Order Status is New Order, something I haven't seen before, and the Batgirl poster is listed twice instead of 30607. I hope that's just technical difficulties
Indeed. I've used VIP points on a few of my orders this month. May as well, since there isn't a double points promotion right now. Also, it helped me get enough money together for $75 orders.
Customer service emailed me back on Monday. The order with 2 batgirl posters was in warehouse, so couldn't be edited, but the rep put in another order with just a 30607. Said it was technical difficulties, which happens with [email protected] sometimes.
Speaking of that, some of the bigger sales and deals sets (sale price above $14.99) I'm not seeing when I look at the site on mobile.
With a $5 rather than $15 promo, you'd need a $200 order to make the extra VIP points worth it
Since they still have 30546 and 30607, I ordered 41233, batman and superman keychains, 2 batman cmf, #41311 and #60150
The last 2 I want, will get those now instead of a mediocre resale deal.
Next order, will see if they let me get any more of the half off sets from sales and deals; don't see much else I want
