    Got mine too today. Very happy Dreamland seems to have summed up the total amount purchased over the promo period to calculate the total number of stamps rather than look at each purchase individually and the number of stamps you're entitled to and then add these quantities up. Got exactly 24 stamps because of that.

    As far as new sets go, most of the 1H2018 stuff is available now (Technic, City, Ninjago, Nexo Knights...) but what's more of an issue is that Dreamland's pricing is ridiculous. A lot of the 2018 sets are more expensive the LEGO direct; A lot of small and mid-range Ninjago and Nexo KNights sets are 5€ more expensive. Quite a big difference for a 20€ set like #72001.

    Some odd thing with Dreamland's 2018 Nexo range as well: they have an 'Exclusive' tag...

    I complained to Lego that the store didn't have the hot dog stand promo, and they sent me one, arrived today :)

    In other news, Lego has been pretty absent from the sales this January. Our local Carrefour Planet went from a whole isle of Lego sets before Christmas to about 5 or 6 boxes left on the shelf. It looks pretty sad. Went to a Dreamland today and not much Lego in the sale.

    Mine also came in the mail today. 22 of them... gotta find someone who has 2 more :-)

    Not a promotion, but perhaps interesting due to the limited availability at the lego shop: Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon now available in Dreamland online,

    Wow, it's even in stock!

    Seems to be an online only item, with no stores showing stock.
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 398
    Great, can someone try the D132 20% off code?

    I blew mine on a Nexo Knights set above RRP... 
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,807
    @Kerre I've used mine too so can't use it either. Still probably won't get one though ;)

    @Covi didn't you mention in the main page you wanted to buy an extra one for a family member?

    Was just in Dreamland and they were hanging up banners for 15% on nexo knights. Shop assistant seemed to think it was only in shop for a couple of days and then online but that seems strange.

    Very shocked to see all the prices of the SW stuff. When you see how small the boxes are it's somehow more real than online.

    Walked out without Lego. Got a nice ruler for my son for 70 cents though.

    Ps shop assistant was nice but strange, be first said, 'oh you poor' when I came in, in my wheelchair and after we paid he wished me to get better soon - why would he assume it's going to get better? I'm guessing he meant well but that's never happened before. Very strange.

    It works! I'm not going to buy one, though... it's way out of my price range for one set and I have nowhere to put it!

    it seems like it doesn't work on the Minecraft Cave set... weird...
  • wardmwardm BelgiumMember Posts: 537
    edit: it doesn't work on any minecraft set. Anyone knows why?

    Until when is the promo with the D132 code available? @Kerre @snowhitie
    and how did you guys learn about the promo? Was it in a mail or...? 
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,807
    @wardm I heard about it from someone else who go an email. A once off code for loyal customers. But it seems to work even if you didn't get the email.

    Code is valid until 31/03/2018.

    At this point I'm fairly sure it's a "pull back in" code for "not actually loyal" customers.. :)

    25% off all toys in Colruyt (don't think Dreamland). In the Groenstraat in Heverlee they've got LBM series 2 and TLNM.

  • wardward Member Posts: 17
    :) I should check it out on my way home.
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,807
    My husband said there's a new TLBM box in Colruyt Heverlee for those who didn't find all the ones they wanted. I'm still after the mermaid but hubby didn't try and feel for it :)

    ^ oh and more importantly, still 25% off.

    Not really a deal, but have you noticed that amazon.de has changed their pricing strategy to Belgium? The price used to change ever so slightly because of the VAT difference between the two countries. It still does that, but now you get on your bill a discount for the difference between the VAT. That way you only end up paying what it originallly said in the listing.

    It's happened the last couple of times to me, took me a while to realise why I was getting this extra discount, but I've calculated it and it's the exact VAT difference. Pretty cool, an extra 50 cents or even a euro here and there is always welcome, right!
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,342
    That's interesting. They've been doing this confusing discount thing since a while where you pay shipping then they subtract it again, and I've seen other discounts as well which I couldn't associate with anything. Not sure if that was always the VAT but I didn't complain...
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 398
    ^^ and ^ It's been like that for quite a while. I noticed this December last year when I bought an expensive graphics card. It's almost if a large number of pedantic Belgian customers complaining about the legal requirement for webshops to display the correct price and costs from early on in the process were suddenly silenced with this discount.

    Funny thing is, the discount is actually more than the VAT difference. Case in point: I just bought a #75189 First Order Heavy assault Walker for 89,66 € delivered (no prime required) whereas the listed price is 89,98 €. Likely this is a rounding error because the Amazon pricing software can't start from the proper price ex VAT.

    15% on LEGO at Fun. As usual, not that interesting for sets at RRP but can reduce a slightly older/retired set that's already reduced set a bit further. Ends on Sunday 4th of March.

  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,342
    Got a notification for Ninjago City indeed being cheapest at Fun. But not enough discount to bite ;)
  • eMJeeNLeMJeeNL The NetherlandsMember Posts: 365
    20% off at Kruidvat in NL. Only a limited selection, but that didn't deter me from getting #60176, #60181 and #60182. Now, only #60183 and #30181 to find and my shopping list for 1HY2018 is complete.

  • eMJeeNLeMJeeNL The NetherlandsMember Posts: 365
    To add: If you want something: it's only on till tomorrow. 20% doesn't sounds like much, but their standard prices are already about 10-15% below RRP.
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 398
    ^20% off in BE as well but the selection is extremely limited indeed.

    Seems the LEGO range Kruidvat carries was trimmed down again after being broadened with some larger sets a couple of months ago.

  • HenkdeVriesHenkdeVries NetherlandsMember Posts: 65
    I snagged a #60180 at Kruidvat today, along with #40236. Thought about buying more, but the selection was small and I don't really need more police chases... Tomorrow perhaps I'll check at another Kruidvat to see what they have...

    Auchan currently gives 25% cashback on their client card on all Lego purchases. Almost all sets are priced at RRP; however recently they have started carrying a limited selection of Creator Expert sets:

    So 25% cashback on those is not too bad if you haven't added these to your collection yet.

    Bol.com is offering an extra 20% discount on a selection of five sets: #41339 Mia's Camper Van for 39,99 for instance (33% off list) as well as #60182 #10806 #70643 and #75177.

    Not that exiting by itself but Bol throws in a free "easter bunny with small house" with many sets above 20 € - not just these. They're not specific about the set number of the offer nor is there a picture but it's very likely #5005249 being offered; Bol even has these for sale individually albeit for 10,99 €.

    Interesting for people that are after #5005249 but not near a LEGO store/have difficulties getting to the free shipping threshold/if you can combine both deals. I ordered a #60182 (+bunny) for the birthday present pool for 23,99 € delivered myself.

    Thanks @Kerre ; really wanted the bunny but couldn't afford to pay Belgian retail on anything for 55 euro on Lego.com, got te save some budget for later.

    After looking through the sets I decided to go for the same thing as you :) Very happy. Cheers.

    'Zondagdeal' at bol.com (basically today's special offer) All Friends sets are discounted by 25%

    So e.g.: Friends collercoaster is now €74,99 instead of €99,99
    https://www.bol.com/nl/p/lego-friends-pretpark-achtbaan-41130/9200000055087341/?suggestionType=browse&bltgh=4671d84a-db59-4d8d-a978-2a7b4e12474a.1.10.ProductTitle

    Not a friends collector myself, though I once bought some sets heavily discounted for the parts to MOC with, but perhaps others are?!

    The Lego store in Wijnegem were handing out the #5005249 Bunny and #5005230 Zane Pod yesterday, as well as the #40290 60 Years Set. This seems to have been around forever!

    They also had the #30352 Police Car polybag for €3.99. The pick a brick wall was again very poor, doesn't seem to have changed in months which is a real shame. However, there was an open box of 1x3 light bley plates on the shelf which was already nearly empty.

    TRU DE (technically not Benelux but OK) has Ninjago City for 239.99€ again (+ 5.95€ shipping = 245.94€ vs 329.99€ BE price).

    Maxi Toys BE/LU has a couple of Lego promotions:
    • Like other stores, you get #5005249 Iconic Easter 2018 when spending EUR 25 or more on Lego. Until stocks last.
    • Buy 2 Ninjago sets, and get 50% off the 2nd set. Valid until 01 April. (Seems to be valid across Ninjago and TLNM)
    • Buy 2 City sets, and get 50% off the 2nd set. Valid until 01 April.
    • Buy 2 Friends sets, and get 50% off the 2nd set. Valid until 01 April.
    Intertoys has similar actions:
    • Spend EUR 25 on Lego to get #5005249 Iconic Easter 2018.
    • Buy 2 Speed Champions sets, get 50% off the 2nd set.
    • 15% off all Ninjago sets.
    TRU DE doesn't just have 20% off #70620 Ninjago City, but on all Lego. This includes the other exclusives they carry, such as #75159 Death Star.

    TRU NL has the same 20% off, but is usually more expensive than TRU DE. They currently don't have any exclusives either that TRU DE doesn't carry.

    ^ Indeed, it was on more than just that - I was in a hurry, got an alert for #70620 and ordered it, then posted, then ran. It's indeed 20% on all. Thanks for the -50% tip, that could get interesting too... Is there no Intertoys in Belgium? I'd go for the SC sets.. :/

    Now the (daytime) frost has finally gone, Easter bunnies are popping up everywhere! Fun.be has them too - 3,99 € or free with a 25 € LEGO purchase.

    Knowing LEGO's lead times the production orders for #5005249 must have gone out when TLG's aggressive growth projections were still in place so there must be plenty of them. I predict a healthy supply of #5005249 just like there are still plenty of #5004468 available around here - like this seller that has still about 500 for sale:



  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,342
    Wow, 3.99€. Here I was placing orders for things I could have saved for the next factory set promo... guess i'll just have to buy even more stuff.

    Well it’s Easter Monday after all, so they might make it official tomorrow. But it was advertized april 2nd on the pdf calendar. I might risk visiting Wijnegem in two weeks, so I can exchange the 100 VIP points voucher and get a second minifig factory.
  • HumdrumHumdrum BelgiumMember Posts: 69
    The bunny is gone it seems. So next year they'll stuff it down our throats in Kruidvat/Carrefour/...
