Well, apparently Target doesn't run a national ad because it's B2G1F here and I checked the on-line Target ad for Utah and it's BOGOHO.

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

Hmm...good to know. I always just assumed they ran a standard ad. I wonder why the change?

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

I always thought the Target ad was regional, that's why they always ask me for my zip code when I check the ad online.

Makes sense to go regional as obviously certain product sells better in certain environments. Though, I don't get why Legos would be different per region...

It's possible that they're just testing the marketing in different regions too. Seeing which promotions are the most effective.

i bet the free one does better, even though the actual discount is only 25% versus 33%. free just sounds better.

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

Free did sound better, I got sucked in on a couple Harry Potter sets today. I picked up 4738 Hagrid's Hut and 4737 Quidditch Match and got a second 4737 free so I could make a full arena.

There's at least one older Quidditch set so I may have to go track down some other minifigs in Quidditch robes to make up some teams.

Poor Hoth Wampa Set - my area Targets have about 40-50 of these each from their sale last X-mas.

Don't you have those percentages reversed? The free one is better.

Also, my area is buy one get one 30% off.

The free one is better. My sentence could have been better.
My percentages were not reversed, just the order in my sentence haha.....


Buy one get one half off is a virtual 25% off both if you buy the same priced item.

Buy two get one free is a virtual 33% off if you buy the same priced item.

Its an 8% difference in savings, but the word "free" always gets good pub. Then again, so does using the 40% coupon at barnes and noble instead.......

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

Just got a email from TRu for a BOGO half off form June 15th to 18th. It states that it is on ALL LEGO but none of the sets in the picture are SW sets and i didn't see any "details" excluding them either. If it does include SW LEGO I HOPE to get 2 more 10188 sets:) Although i wouldn't be surprised to see that set suddenly sold out when the sale starts

Not sure if you are awake now or not but the death star is included in this sale. I guess $300 per isnt half bad.

No promo code needed, just put two in your cart and it should deduct half of the lower priced one.

This is the first time in a while that I've seen the bigger sets in stock with this sale

I don't seem to be getting it. Has anyone here been successful in getting the discount applied in their cart?

When in doubt go to IE, glad you got it.

Looks like Death Star is OOS

So I read the fine print that the online sale started at 9 am EST, went to bed, woke up at 6 am, and all was on sale and everything good was sold out. Did this go live at midnight like I figured?

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

Crap, wish I'd noticed this earlier. Most of the hoardable sets are out of stock. I did order a couple of the Kingdoms mill village. That will go well with my Medieval Marketplace and the spare will probably shoot up in a couple of years thanks to the rare animals.

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

The death Satr was still available as of 8 a.m. centrral time but I couldn't add 1 or 2 for that matter to my cart. After several attempts it just showed up as sold out. Curious if it was even available during the sale in the first place.

It probably wasn't really available, or somebody on the East Coast got them as soon as the sale went live.

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

I checked the Death Star several days before the sale, and it was available at that time. I'm guessing it just got gobbled up really fast when the sale went live.

It did. I had them in my cart when the sale went live and was able to purchase them. I think they were available for about 45 minutes until you got the changing the quantity message. It still showed you could add to your cart, but it would not go through.

Use V7T4Y4X at bn.com for 30% off one item, including LEGO. Coupon expires June 27 and can only be used once. Also, free shipping on orders over $25.
Has anyone had any luck using this code lately? I've been trying to use it for the past 10 days to pick up Fallingwater, but keep getting told that I don't yet qualify for the coupon, and then I get referred to the eligibility requirements. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

This isnt really a sale but the Endor set popped up on line at the S@H website. My order would not go through online so I called and they said it was low stock. The adviser was able to put the order through.

Update
Now Sold Out.

S@H just sent me an email about items on sale. Except for a few keychains, there's nothing Star Wars, but you might find something else interesting.

I just got my catalog and it did have a coupon on the back cover at the very bottom. There is also a section on the front cover that references the coupon.

Re: Lego On Sale Thread #2

TRU is doing BOGOHO again, but SW, POTC and Alien Conquest are excluded. However, I didn't notice this at my local TRU, but online the Cars sets are already 20% off before you take off the additional 50%.
