Got #75179 Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter for $63.99 and the free 4th bricktober minifigure pack #5004941.
- 1 Ninjago: Because there was a set on sale I wanted to buy; otherwise I would have skipped this one.
- 2 TLBM: First one free with sets on sale I wanted; the second free with sets that I might not have bought otherwise.
- 2 City Jungle: Both with sets on sale I wanted.
- 1 LEGO: Free with a set on sale I wanted ( #75179 mentioned above). Thinking about grabbing a second one today after work.
In all cases, there were plenty left on Sunday/Monday, but gone by Friday.
I wonder if they are holding back so they can put them on sale in November.
Anyway... first year I get all four of them :-)
At my local store they were letting you buy it for $19.99.
By holding up until after the promotion they would "minimize" the amount of sets that go for free.
Again, just a thought.
I sorted the eBay sold listings for "Bricktober", and some folks manage to get multiple copies, usually one seller at each change in distance. I would not be surprised if these sellers had an inside connection that allows them to pick up "leftovers" before they hit the shelves for sale.
Might just be a new thing on their site that is going to popup for all events going forward but I believe in "better safe than sorry". I've noticed a number of other improvements on their site so this might just be something new they've implemented for all events.
I think it is a YMMV, I got a free #40268 R3-M2 with a purchase of 30 or more, and it 'stacks' with the Bricktober if you buy more than 50. There were signs up in the aisle as they still had these in stock.
On another note, it sucks that $40228 is now $5.99 as they were $10 way back when they first released and I burned a $10 rewards certificate on it for someone else. Oh well... I might buy one for myself at that price just because...
Also, that store had ~20 Bricktober Batman sets on the shelf and still had ~10 Ninjago ones. Last week, they only had Ninjago ones. So, unless they just got a new shipment in, it looks like they're waiting 2 weeks before putting them out for sale (assuming they still have week 3 sets available).
I did not attempt to stack promos, but might try later if I decide to buy #70616 Ice Tank and/or #41324 Snow Resort Ski Lift.
