Does Borders sell Lego? my local one dosen't.
B&N does the same sort of thing, and as a member they occasionally send you a "%%% off one item" coupon, and while it's usually 20%, lately (possibly for Christmas) we've seen 30%.
I have a post about it in the deals section... I got one for 30% the entire purchase.
Unfortunately, the selection is slim... but I got the two new expensive architecture sets for a very good price (relatively speaking).
What I've seen in the book stores has been very limited. but they have more online (again, B&N, I haven't found much at Borders).
My other experiences this year include getting "dented" box discounts at the local LEGO store, which made Cafe Corner and Green Grocer very much more worthwhile (since I don't care about the beat up boxes as long as the set is intact).
The first half of the year I spent several thousand dollars on LEGO. The second half... maybe $600 or $700. TLG is not endearing itself to me these past few years. With the demise of Bionicle, my son will be buying significantly less, also; neither of us are particularly interested in Atlantis or Space Cops.
