Re: The Monster Fighters are not in the New Spring Lego Cata

You may know this already, but especially at Walmart, make sure to find out whether there is a separate "clearance" section somewhere in the store. I've been to many Walmarts in MD and VA, and quite a few along I-95 between DC and Boston. Most of these stores have separate clearance sections for mos...

Re: Is It Best To Sell On eBay, Bricklink or Amazon?

I also sell new sets on Amazon. In fact, I shut down my Bricklink account over a year ago to focus on Amazon exclusively. Assuming you have an Amazon account to buy things, changing your profile to also be an Amazon seller is quite easy. The process of actually listing and selling things will take a...

Re: I think the Target Winter clearance has started...

As of Thurs night (Dec 14), the Target in Germantown, MD had at least 15 SW Naboo Fighters for 30% off ($34.89). They also had 6-8 Geonosian Starfighters for $20.99, also 30% off. Finally, there were lots of the small planet sets marked down ... too many to count. I did not see any other sets discou...

Re: [USA] Kmart LEGO Clearance Fall 2012

The Kmarts in Germantown MD and Silver Spring Md had no Lego sets on clearance when I checked them out last night. FWIW, the Germantown store had the much larger toy clearance section. The Silver Spring store was limited to a couple of rolling racks.

[USA] K-Mart, 30% Off "All" Toys Sept 29-30 (Stores only)

I received an email from Kmart at about 1pm Friday EST. Here is what is says: Weekend Toy Mega Sale 30% off an entire toy purchase* Valid in store only The email never uses the word coupon, but there is a bar code toward the bottom. There is very light and small print below the barcode that reads "t...

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart LEGO Clearance Fall 2012

I have a couple of thoughts about sharing information after one of us visits a store and shops for Lego. NO GOOD DEALS. I believe it might be really helpful to the other Lego enthusiasts on this board to share information about SPECIFIC STORES when you've been to one that does not have any good deal...

Re: [US] TRU New sale: buy 1 get 1 40% off

The good news is that the modular sets all appear to be at MSRP.

The VW Camper, which I would love to pick up, is at $129, which I believe is $10 above MSRP. Still, this set is rarely on sale, so it is tempting.

I have not checked any of the other non-modular sets.

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

In case it is useful, it appears the only two large sets that TRU is offering at MSRP that are eligible for the B2G1 free sale are Robie House (21010) and Falling Water (21005). I've read a little of the back and forth evaluating TRU's conduct. I don't want to sound disrespectful or critical but bel...

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

I received most of the rest of my B2G1 free order today ... I'm just waiting on one more set. Appx half of my sets arrived in plain boxes with air pillows inside to cushion the sets. All of the plain boxes were the same size, but the number of sets inside varied from 1 to 3. Though it was wasteful p...

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

At risk of sounding like a TRU apologist, I thought I should mention that I received my first 3 sets today (Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape). The sets were packaged well and the sets and box arrived unscathed. I'm really sorry others have not been so fortunate. I placed a big order at about 6:30am Sunda...

Re: How is the Lego Store compared to other sites?

I think it is worth adding that you appear to have done extremely well for yourself, even before you received the great info in this thread Very few people got in on the TRU B2G1F sale before they restored their marked-up prices. And you appear to have succeeded in maxxing out the discounts availabl...

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

Super Heroes sets may be included in the sale even though the Buy 2 Get 3rd FREE!** legend does not appear underneath them. I just ordered 3 of the Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape and got the third one free.

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

TRU should be embarassed about saying that "All Lego Sets" are B2G1 free. The exclusions go way beyond Ninjago, Technic and Friends. All of the Modular sets are ineligible. It looks like all the Super Heroes sets are ineligible too (I checked down all of the sets above $50 and none were eligible). B...

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

They have to be eligible items. And it appears the two highest priced items need to be the identical price. I would roughly estimate that 25% to 33% of the sets over $75 are eligible. It should say so specifically below the item's description. MOST INTERESTING: the site appears to only lets you get ...

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

It finally worked, sort of .... Nothing in my cart was eligible EXCEPT Jabba's Palace, which was processed at the $119 sale price, not at $149. And shipping was free. Never would have guessed this as the outcome.

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

I'm staying hopeful too ... just not as euphoric as I was earlier, when I imagined getting copies of a lot of the sets I have wanted for a long, long time. Now I'm just hoping they don't run out of the few sets they'll be selling at MSRP that I'm interested in. I would love to go to sleep, but if I ...

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

What a complete pain ... waiting has made me cranky. I'm now convinced most sets won't be eligible or, if they are, will revert to TRU's famously inflated prices. E.g., Jabba's Palace must be included in the sale since it is pictured in the flyer. I now feel foolish for thinking earlier that it migh...

Do the B2G1F sale start at midnight Eastern time? Also, does it start at 12:00 sharp?
