Walmart USA Post Christmas sale?

Post by ritzcrackerman » Thu Dec 25, 2014 11:42 pm

Any finds in-store?

I recall a number of sets dropping to 50% off immediately after Christmas in-store only- this was 2011 and 2012. They skipped the discount last year.

Any finds yet this year?

First ones in the door. Looks like nada this year as well. :/Im at a fairly well stocked store and the older ninjago sets arent discounted more than 20%. Manager seemed like he was used to hearing questions about Lego clearance and had his prepared statement about "possibly at the end of January." Lego store's got nothing from what I saw online, on to Target.

I hit two this morning and I saw no toys on clearance, just like last year.

I saw 2 sets

Creator-
31019 and 31004 but it could be a YMMV.

The 31019 is pictured in the target add so that should be everywhere. Guess I can save myself a trip, might stop at Walmart later this week and see if any of the creative towers get returned or dug up from the back.

Yes I saw them and bought some at Target. ;-)
See the Target clearance post on the YMMV section for the sets I found and I could remember.

I talked to a few upper management contacts at Wal-mart before the holidays.

Expect heavy reductions at Walmart in late January through Spring.

Target clearance should be happening now, but don't expect anything like previous years where entire sections of lego were clearanced.

save your gas and time, imo. Wait until the last week of January and cruise by your closest well stocked Wal-mart. That should give a clue as to whats happening.

good luck guys!

Ninjago Nindroid Mechdragon 70725 retail $89.99 for $34.50 at my local Wal-mart

It was nowhere near the toy department or area where I normally look for clearance. It was on a rolling cart with Megablok sets and other random items (plus 2 Chima sets). There was at least 5 of Nindroid Mechdragon 70725 left on the cart. It was marked $69.00 but on the side there was a tiny $34.50 sticker on both ends of the box that I almost didn't notice. I asked in Electronics for a price. It rang up $69 but the worker said that they had marked them for the discount price and had to get a manager to override the price which they did with no trouble :-)

It was on a rolling cart in front of the dairy case in the grocery department. Strange place to put a clearance cart of toys. I was tempted to buy 2-3 for this price but only took one since I know very little about the set. At $34.50 for 5 minifigures (2 rare) and 691 pieces I couldn't resist one to buy for parts.

My local store finally placed the remaining sets in a separate lego clearance area. Some of them were discounted to 30-50% off, yet at the same time some were still full price. A lot of the boxes were also very damaged, two had even been taped to hold together.

I managed to pick up six copies of set 70816 for 50$ each.
