I got an email from Kmart saying that they had given me $10 in bonus points for free. I headed to the store and found two series 2 Mixels and an old Chima ultrabuild set that I got for $4.78 total. Nice!

bayonne nj walmart, had the clearance sets at up to 75% off. bought almost everything they had.
stuff like-
got the rebels tie fighter for 15 bucks. bought 3.
got the chima 70222 for 10.50 got 4.
star wars droid ship 75042 for 17.50, got 5
mixels for 2.50, just bought whatever they had.
chima 70220 for 5.50, bought 6
lego 76016 spiderman for 17.50, bout 3


the only sets i left behind was the city swamp chase, which was 17 or 20 or 25, i forget. there were 2 left.

sold out before i got there-
man i missed out on star wars cantina for 25 bucks
missed out on emitt's construction mech for 25 bucks (i later bought for 45 in north bergen)

darn i wanted the new dewback, for 25 bucks, that was the steal!

but i want to build that new tie fighter, so for 15 bucks, i have no problem ripping open the box!
and i wanted the TORMOK minifigure, so for 10 bucks, i get to build that crazy tank-sled as well!

I didn't buy the Construction Mech, need to save money or marry rich, but I hope I get it as a gift. I bought the little Unikitty (That's wrong I think) set at Walmart for $15. Even though technically the mech has like 800 pieces and would be cheaper overall.

My Targets marked the sets up and then stuck them on clearance for normal-ish price. That was a new thing to me I have never seen before. (Including the last clearance event at the same store.)

I also got four Mixels for $2.50 each at The LEGO Store, also had $5 rewards so I got four for $5.50. I was very happy. Sadly they didn't have the glow in the dark / dark blue ones.

Found at Target:
One store that had clearanced a couple of Creator Bike shop & café for $26.98 each
and had a salvaged Chima Maula mammoth stomper that they gave to me for $13.48.
These are definitely" right-place at right-time" type of deals.

My local Meijer's clearanced a few items 40% off less than a week ago. They have set up the shelves for the new star wars sets (is it Sept 1st they are to hit the shelves?). They actually had prices on the tags for the star wars sets (not sure if they are accurate or not). Anyway of the FEW sets that were clearanced I bought 2x Chima: Tormak's Shadow Blazer #70222 for $17.99 (retail $29.99). One left on the table (on a clearance table in front of electronics (not LEGO aisle)

A locale Walmart had 114 Mixels sets for $1.00 each just sitting on a shelf in the back of the store so we bought them all. Another close by Walmart had 11 of the 31036-1 Toy & Grocery Shop at $15.00 each - we purchased them also (we have a BrickLink store so when a good deal comes along we need to take advantage).

Found a near pristine 9465 (MF The Zombies) just sitting on the shelf at Target.

Of course it wasn't in the system, and the first young lady at customer service told me she could price match Amazon at $120 or ToyWiz at $249, since they had nothing but my word that it retailed for $39.99 originally and had been discontinued for some time. Long story short: Just about the time I was about to give up hope and let her salvage it, another employee had no issue with the $39.99 and adjusted the price to $19.99.

Seals look good, and as I said the box was pristine. No idea where it was hiding for the last 2ish years. Bit of halloween magic! :)

That reminds me, around this time last year i found one of the MF clock polybags sitting with the Umbarian MHCs.. scanned for 1.99, this time of year seems to have some interesting finds!

Did a store pickup for First Order Snowspeeder at Target. When they took it out of the back, it was the First Order Transporter. I didn't complain

And you didn't say anything when they brought you the wrong product? Steal of a Deal literally I guess. That's pretty dishonest.

United Nations Headquarters (architecture) #21018 50% off at local Meijer's (Richmond, KY) for $25!

This is my first purchase from the architecture theme and I considered it when I saw it 30% off. The 30% off one disappeared (assumed someone bought it) and then I found it with a 50% off sticker on the box. I'm assuming its the same one... just returned, lost in the back room or found hidden on shelves.

It was the only one there. I'm assuming this is very much ymmv.

Just bought 20 #70749 for $25 apiece (sealed). Hoping to sell the minifigs and recoup 90% of my money for very cheap pieces.

This may qualify as the deal of the century:
My 10 year old Nephew and I like to look for stuff at out of the way places and yesterday he spotted on a lower shelf a Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 set at Goodwill type store called Savers. We were on pins and needles as some putz walked by and picked it up , looked it over and fortunately put it back down. My Nephew ran over and grabbed it and we quickly paid for it and got the heck out of there. This is what we got for $3.99 (same price as a minifigure):

Still counting and sorting the pieces, but it appears to be about 95% complete. Only missing a few small replaceable pieces and the software disk. (no biggie, can be downloaded from the Mindstorms website)
:-D
