Actually, its not suprising to see this. The prices of Canadian basically turns to USA pricing for ALL LEGO sets. The glitch is this: This coupon code is set for only USA and the LEGO group "forgot/miss out" on changing it for Canada as well. If you read the little flier that comes with your LEGO order, the exclusive offer says "offer valid only in USA" but the flier prices are all in Canadian.

Another example would be the brickmaster code. bscd29. The offer is $5 off. This would not work for Canada as its only for USA. However, i did it on the phone and they couldn't do apply it either. So they just override the system and took the $5 off. Otherwise, all the prices will turn to USA pricing and they don't want that. I know this because one time i used this code on the phone and the rep won't let me receive the $5 off and said the prices all turned into USA pricing.

However, sometimes, they might not even let you take the $5 off. (depending on which rep you get)

The choice of items on sale seems too convenient to me to just be an "error" (that's always been their excuse even though the coupon code "glitch" has been happening for like five years now). Look at the sets they discounted - mainly big ticket items that are frankly overpriced in Canada and probably not selling that well, especially the dropship. And then the clone battle pack being on sale has to be tied to the dropship sale. Why else would they discount the clones - I'm sure they sell like hotcakes even at full price. The lame droid battlepack would be a more logical choice except that I think they wanted to discount the clone pack so that people buying the walker on sale could get extra clones too. And then the power functions are related to the Emerald Night. These aren't random items on sale, it's deliberate (either at Lego USA or Lego Canada).

My guess? Someone jumped the gun and pretested a code that will come into effect officially on May 3-4th for the Anniversary. For those that missed out today, stay tuned, you might get a second chance.

Well there is now! Thanks for starting it. :lol:

Seriously, we should set up a pm/email list for everyone who is Canadian and wants to be part. If you hadn't pmed me I would have missed it because I don't check this site on a daily/hourly basis. So thanks again for that.

I just got my email confirmation and I got the discount on the dropship but a word of warning regarding the clone walker packs: on my email invoice the one I ordered on sale turned into a #630 brick separator for $9.99! That doesn't make any sense since the brick separator only costs $1.69-$2.69 on Lego's website. :lol: I've emailed customer service (didn't have the courage to phone lest they challenge me on the code) - will report on how it pans out. But for the time being don't make an order for just five clone packs or something lest they turn into the most overpriced brick separators on the planet! :shock:

I too just got my confirmation on the Dropship order. I was starting to worry they wouldn't want to sell it at the $249 price tag, but there it is ! The Emerald Night and power function items are not getting dropped from the list. It does seem like an unadvertised (yet) sale.

But the add of the motorised AT-AT is just weird.

And I'm glad to have been able to help you empty your wallet! :p
