I hope that the retail stores are getting a fresh shipment of the polys. 2 of the 3 stores in my area are already out of stock. Why isn't this the Thor poly instead? Typical TRU promotion. :zzz:

Can anyone figure out how to get the "Free Shipping"???? I added in $75worth of Legos.....not Free.
$75 of non-Lego....not Free! It says "qualifying product". From what I could see, nothing on their web page qualifys. Also nothing qualifys for the ShopRunner either. Unbelieavable.

I'm running into the same problem. I have $90 worth of Lego in my cart and no free shipping.

When I look at the fine print for the free shipping over $75 it says
  • *Standard shipping only to lower 48 states, street addresses, up to $20 value. Excludes video game consoles/handhelds,hardware, gift cards and Buyer Protection Plan. Baby toys do not qualify towards the free shipping requirement
Now I'll admit that Lego bricks feel hard when you step on them in bare feet, but I don't think they're considered "hardware" :-D

TRU seems to be doing everything they can to move people to buy from Amazon. I did a purchase last week that should have qualified for the free Ninjago sword polybag but they were out of stock... yet the "free Ninjago sword" promo kept showing on their main page every day aftewards.

Combine promotions that don't work with "sale" prices that are often higher than MSRP, ... Unbelievable is definitely the word that sums them up lately.

(PS. My location says Canada but I have an address in the US that I use for billing/shipping).

Not only does free shipping not show up, but they seem to have jacked most of the prices back up to their original amount. What looked like it was going to be a decent deal has turned bad quick. Not to mention I cannot find the Friends project case on their site anywhere. Sucky.

I may have been a little quick in my distaste. Once I switched to store pickup I found a very useful way of getting what I wanted. The Batman Jetski vanished, but I got two LOTR project cases for free in a single purchase. Since I also selected an item that was on sale (20% off even LEGO Store price) and a TRU exclusive, I think I did pretty good.

I think you have to tinker with it a bit. At one point, I had two regular lego items in my cart, and two free LOTR project cases and two free batman jetskis. Definitely a glitch to be had here.

If I might inquire, what items did you have in your cart?

And it gets even better. I found the Friends project case http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=13165141" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; added it x2, the Hoth Echo base x1, and the batman jetski x1. The Friends had to be shipped (no store pickup) which cost me $7.50 for both. But for $79+tax I got a TRU exclusive Hoth that costs $89 at LEGO store, 2 friends project cases, and 1 batman.

I added the Hoth first, then 1 project case and 1 batman. I then upped the quantity on the case to 2 and it stayed free. By the way, when I first went to the shopping cart it had a second batman for free, but when I updated the friends case quantity it changed one to $4.99.

Tinker with it and see if you cannot find a similar great deal.

The items I would suggest doing it with are

the Battle for Geonosis http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=11798872" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and Hoth Echo Base http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=11798872" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

as both are 20% off real retail (not TRU retail) and TRU exclusives - meaning you are unlikely to find better. Then add either

LOTR project case http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=12986414" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
or Friends project case http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=13165141" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and batman jetski http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=12851499" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Up quantity on friends to 2 and all should be free. I changed everything I could to store pickup to avoid paying as much shipping as possible.

This was my first order. The second one I found the Friends case and the batman stayed free too. But above you can see two free LOTR cases - $13.99 ea ($27.98 total - free)

actually, the above was not the one I ended up going through, as I lowered my Hoth Echo quantity to 1, then checked out.

Anyone having issues with the free shipping? I was, so I called and was given a promotional shipping code that is case sensitive: 3RqsEazZpux Once I entered the code, my shipping costs were removed. I completed the order without them returning. And for some reason (the glitch mentioned above) I got to free Batman Jetskis as well as the LOTR case...

^^Would do store pickup but the nearest store is about 80 miles away.

Not understanding why the free shipping isn't working when my cart is clearly above $75.

I called and customer service said not all LEGO has free shipping. Only when the page has the "free shipping" icon then it's eligible. Tried doing store up and the same store doesn't have everything (especially batman jet ski) in stock. :crazy:
