Amazon.com's Lightning Deal For The Day

Postby Staff » Wed Dec 09, 2009 9:52 am




There is a LEGO Creator House, set number 4956, featured today in Amazon.com's Lightning Deals section. List price is $49.99, Amazon's price is $43.99, Lightning Deal price is yet to be revealed. By my calculation, the deal should be available at 3:00pm PST. Previous Lightning Deals included LEGO Star Wars 10186 General Grievous, Bionicle 8942 Jetrax T6, LEGO Indiana Jones 7626 Jungle Cutter, and 7198 Fighter Plane Attack, all for 50% off MSRP.

Thanks for the info, I got mine for 50% off right at the clock. All deals were claimed in the first five minutes.

Yes, thanks for posting this. My wife collects these houses, and this was one that she was still missing.
My challenge was finding something else to bring it up to $25, to get free shipping...

No you don't, just check out. I only ordered the house and they still gave me free shipping. They take the free shipping discount based on the original price, which is 43.99, then they subtract the 19 lightning deal discount. Hope that helps :)

Interesting... When the house was all I had in my cart, it was giving me the message that I still needed $0.01 more to get free shipping. It doesn't really matter, though. I still got my order in. :)

I got one right off the bat. I tried to enter another one but I guess you are only allowed one per customer so I signed back in under my wife's account and got another one under her name. Now I can start a neighborhood. :cool:

I don't know if I should start a new thread (I'll leave that to the Admins if they want), but today's Amazon deal is the 7197 Indiana Jones VENICE CANAL CHASE at 8am Pacific Time. It should be around $19.99 based on previous deals. :cool:

Thanks Thundarr, I just got in on the Venice Canal Chase. I wanted the figs and thought I'd BL them, but this made it an affordable purchase!

Thanks for the heads up. I was surprised at 50% off it still took 10 minutes to sell out. The Indiana Jones sets seem to be flying off the shelves in stores and online this year.

Main Lightning Deal Page upcoming at 6pm PST:
Clue: "Help your child build a new house out of LEGO for a great price. This classic set will be a family favorite." I hope its the 6754 Family Home - I still need that (those tan bricks and arches will be essential for a Tatooine MOC). :cool:

The pirate ship is probably not LEGO because brickbeard's bounty is only available from other sellers on Amazon, not from Amazon directly.

Yep, you were right, not LEGO at all for the 9am deal. I edited my post above. :)

I've only seen these deals for the last day or so, but my guess, is that it's the same Creator House again. We'll see soon, I guess. When do they actually display what it's going to be? An hour before?

chump:
They never show the main lightning deals (Gold Box Discounts) until "showtime", only clues. But for the holidays, they have additional "Top Holiday Deals" that have pictures and the actual name of the item and when it will be on sale. The first Creator House deal earlier this week was one of those.
