Amazon’s Plummeting Prices, Shipping Deadlines – Update 2
Update 2: Free Super Saver Shipping deadline in time for Christmas delivery has been extended to December 19.
Update: It seems the BOGO page has been taken down with a message saying that “this deal has expired.” I pushed two Lotso’s dump truck through to the final order screen and still saw a 25% discount. If you act fast enough before they change their code, you can still net the discount.
This might be one of the last updates I do for Amazon. Their window for Christmas delivery using Free Super Saver Shipping closes on December 17, which is tomorrow. So if you’ve been procrastinating about ordering stuff from Amazon, tomorrow would be your deadline to save on shipping and still get things in time for Christmas. Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, that’s a whole other ball game. You can view their shipping schedule for more information.
One other thing you have to consider is that once an item that is sold and shipped by Amazon is sold out, third party vendors items become the default shopping option, and prices tend to shoot upwards once that happens. So with that, let’s move on to the deals.
Amazon still has their BOGO 50% off page up and running. Scanning the deals, I’ve spotted a few sets that continue to go lower in price.
- 7572 Quest Against Time is now down to $24, down $5 since our last mention.
- 7597 Western Train Chase is down to $54, down $4 since our last mention. This also qualifies for BOGO 50%.
- I, personally, have been waiting for this one: 7789 Lotso’s Dump Truck is finally seeing a discount: $12.99 down from $19.99. This was the last set I needed to complete my Toy Story collection before the line goes poof (it’s already discontinued).
- This is the lowest I’ve seen this go for on Amazon: 8037 Anakin’s Y-Wing Starfighter is down to $49, down from $59.99
- Same goes for 8085 Freeco Speeder, down to $17.99 from $24.99.
- And of course, I can’t mention their BOGO sale without linking to 10198 Tantive IV and 10197 Fire Brigade now can I?
Remember, all the sets above qualify for the BOGO 50% off discount.
Not on BOGO, but:
- 7596 Trash Compactor Escape is discounted pretty nicely: $29, down $10 bucks and some change since our last mention.
- The price of 8038 The Battle of Endor has slowly but steadily been dropping the past few days. It currently stands at $82.24, down from $99.99. One of the best OT sets ever made.
- You can never have enough tauntauns, amirite? 7749 Echo Base is down to $21.19 with free 3-5 day standard shipping.
- And finally, In LEGO Duplo news, 5816 Mack’s Road Trip is down to $29, down from $49.99.
