Re: Amazon.ca pop up sale

Lego store sale for ewok village - yorkdale mall toronto

it was available for 20% off and also double vip pts at the lego store in Yorkdale Mall. Bought one today and there was one left on the shelf.

its not on sale at shop@home but it may be on sale at other lego stores

Re: Barnes & Nobles 2016 Black Friday LEGO Sale

some lego will work on the bogo 50%. I tested it on some sets and it worked. of course the sets I wanted it did not work.

for Canadians (at ontarians), with the high exchange rate, I worked it out and it still does not make sense to buy even with the 25% off (if buying two sets of the same)

Re: Walmart Rollbacks 15% off Star Wars UCS

amazon.ca has matched the prices for these so better to get them at amazon with the 2.75% rebate.

Re: 10254 Holiday Train Creator Expert LEGO Official Press R

surprised no one else has made a comparison to the original 2007 holiday train 10173 that was $90usd for over 900 pieces or about 9-10 cents a piece. When inflating to 2016 dollars it comes to about 13 cents per piece based on quick math but other posters should do a more detailed comparison. I sold...

Re: Walmart.ca City Space Port 20% off

as of feb 5, 2016, I was still getting airmiles (based on my purchase of the bike shop creator set), so is this recent? because the link is still on the airmilesshop.ca website today and still working.

Re: TRU Streetview Collection x4 online

No more issues with the website if you add one of the eligible sets to the cart. it j...

Re: Walmart.ca City Space Port 20% off

its also $120 at the lego store now, so better to get it there than at TRU when you can get cash back rewards (with online purchase) and the usual 5% towards your lego vip pts whereas tru, airmiles is the only reward.

Re: TRU Canada - couple City sets on sale

Definitely weird to see a sale on top of a sale price that makes it look like $69.98 was the original msrp. Not sure if this is the first time I have seen something like that at toysrus.ca but it was just a fluke to be checking out toysnbricks and the Canadian sales forum on Friday evening.

Re: Are Americans near a Canadian bordering buying up Lego?

I don't think that is happening. shelves are bare at certain walmarts and toysrus stores in Toronto area too. Some toysrus and walmart stores have more stock than others, just a matter of which stores were frequented by holiday/Christmas shoppers the most when they buying presents and which stores c...

did everyone forget with sears, there is always bound to be a promo code to use? Unfortunately I only found a $10 off coupon 941612514; the next level is $15 off when $150 is spent. so this is a good deal when combined with the promo code. comes out to 32% off since sending past purchases to an appr...

Toysrus cashiers are writing on the receipts that a give-away was provided with your purchase. so there is no refund and keeping the freebie set.

Re: London Drugs 15% off + $10 coupon

There are actually some sets at 20% off; however, there is a shipping fee of $9.95 which means the $10 you save cancels this out so 20% off is the best discount you can get.

good thing, I sold my 2009 winter toy shop misb along with other OOP winter theme sets earlier this year - these were good collector items for resale. I will still definitely buy this one when it comes out. Cannot go wrong with winter holiday theme sets.

Re: LEGO Star Wars 10188 Death Star (2008 Set Retiring Soon)

What's with these comments about outdated parts and minifig printing? What do you expect when you are considering a set 7 years later after its release! Any set generally would be outdated 7 years later as lego keeps remaking old themes/sets. Nothing to do with outdated pieces, but on the investment...
